I recently got a Mew via the Mew Trick and traded it to Gold, where it was cloned like fifteen times and shipped off to all of my other versions and those of a few of my grateful friends who are into Pokemon like I am. Anyhow, I play Crystal the most, so that's where I got my first taste of what it was like to train a Mew.

Well...

Mew is a good Pokemon, let's establish that right now. It's stats are very well balanced, and there's also the little bonus of it being able to learn any move in the entire game. However, when I compared it to other Pokemon, I found that there are others that in my opinion are better in battle, and I don't just mean Legendaries and Ubers.

So then, why is Mew so desireable? Is it the fact that obtaining it is a bit challenging, or is it truly because of Mew's overall battle performance? I mean, I saw a poll in another thread that asked who was better among Mew, Celebi, and a few others I can't remember, and Mew was winning by a landslide! So tell me, why does everyone love Mew?

I like Mew because of the movie, the one where he takes on Mewtwo.
I collected a whole heap of Mew back when I was playing G/S/C...
I don't think I would ever use Mew if I had him in my earlier versions today.

I say it's because it's the unobtainable. The only way to get it is from that card (that I'll never get). And it's also cute.

Perhaps because if Mew was as common as Rattatas, then people would think 'blast, not another Mew!' but since Mew at the moment is rarer than chikens having teeth, when you finnaly catch/download a Mew you get a relifed/happy/joyus feeling (A small taste of something superb, is better than lots of something that is O.K.). Mew is also very "sweet" in the pokemon movies which appeals to a lot of people who like "sweet" etc. the fact that Mew is powerful and "sweet" makes it appeal to those who are sweet and want to be powerful, which creates a roll-model for different people to look up to. I myself like Mew only because it can learn all HMs, so if I had one, that's all I would use it for.

For the same reason why I like Deoxys. It is unobtainable, and when I got my Deoxys, I nearly had a heart attack! Also, it looks so innocent, yet it's a gamebeater Pokemon. Also, Mewtwo is awesome, and it's basically just a taller Mew.

Mew is my favorite Psychic and my favorite Legendary Pokemon. The reason I like Mew is that its an unobtainable pokemon, like what other people said. Mew can also learn every TM/HM. Mew it self looks cool and cute. Mew also comes from Kanto my all-time favorite generation. Mew is also the last pokemon that is found on the Kanto pokedex. I think that if Mew appears in wild, so much often like: Magikarp, Rattata, Tentacool, and much more...then people would hate Mew by its annoying apperance. Though I like Mew and will always do. :D

Mew_fan, Blue Mew, Mew Lover etc

I don't really see why everyone is obssessed the the pink little idiot. I hate it to be honest, It's pretty darn useless.

-"Wow! It can learn every attack!"
-"So can Smeargle..."

Maybe because it's cute, super-rare, pink [for boys], I don't know.
All I'm saying is, it sucks IMO.

I like Jirachi more...
Because Jirachi is something. It learns Doom Desire, which Mew doesn't learn :)

I haven't caught a Mew at all! (TT.TT) But from reading the replies from the rest of you, I shall make a few conclusions...

Reasons Mew Rocks:

1.) Super rare and unobtainable
2.) Super cute and pink
3.) Learns all HMs
4.) Strong in many said ways
5.) Premiered in Movie "Pokemon the First Movie/Mewtwo vs Mew"

Reasons Mew does not Rock:

1.) There are pokemon capable of being stronger
2.) Big deal, there are other pokemon that learn all HMs
3.) Mew is Pink
4.) Mew is useless in many said ways

Okay, now that that is established, everyone, please understand that many years ago, Mew probably was one of the super "holy sugar" strong pokemon. But....many years later, GameFreak decided to make more games, and more legendaries...therefor more opportunity to improve those legendaries. Take one look at RBY versions and compare it to LeafGreen and FireRed....**GASP! THEY'RE DIFFERENT!** Now, everyone has their opinions, if you enter a Forum called "I love Mew." then duh, it's gonna be filled with mew fans. Same with "I hate Mew.", they will throw stones if you like Mew. But anyway, times have changed, there are still crazy fans out there, so what can you do. I have a strong desire for mew as well, I mean you gotta admit...

he is pretty darn cute!

:D

I'm not crazy about mew but he definitely isn't on my favorites list either. He's not that good in battling, no matter how many moves he can learn. Other Pokemon just simply outclass him.

Mew is cute, but it annoys me for some reason, like Pikachu does... >_>

He's popular because he can be unpredictable.

Mew has the same appeal that shiny pokemon have: it is incredibly rare. In actual battle, it's not realy that great; nearly any TM moveset that Mew can use can be used more effectively by some other pokemon. But if you had a pokemon that you could only get by going to a Nintendo event, wouldn't you use it?

Compare Mews stats to Smeargle. (Mews Base stats are all 100)

Smeargles base stats:
HP-55
Attack-20
Defense-35
Speed-75
Sp. Attack-20
Sp. Defense-45
Total-250

Max stats:
HP-313
Attack-138
Defense-168
Speed-248
Sp. Attack-138
Sp. Defense-188

Yeah, Mew's better...

Mew's an interesting thing. It has the power to do lots of stuff, and also isn't a big ugly thing like Venusaur... Or... Err... .... Groudon. No clue. Mew's a cute, pink thing instead of a big, fierce thing.

Another odd thing I noticed; Shoyru's look unusually like mews when you think about it... Nevermind me. :oops: :lol:
