In the games
When the player has the Old Sea Map and goes to the S.S. Tidal port in Lilycove City and the player interacts with the woman standing in front of the boat, the Faraway Island event will activate. Initially, the woman claims it's impossible to take the player to the area denoted on the chart, but Mr. Briney scolds her for turning the player away and volunteers to take the player to Faraway Island, even though it is a long way from Hoenn.
After the boat ride, the player enters Faraway Island, a small island with a thick patch of forest. Deep within this forest, the player notices Mew, who flees playfully. After a short game of hide and seek, the player is able to pin Mew in a corner and engage it in battle.

The Old Sea Map was only released officially in Japan and was distributed in 2005 during the Pokémon Festa event. Like the GS Ball, this event item never reached international players without the use of cheating.
