Description: "This is the secret course found in the clouds. Check out the sky and you'll see the constellations of other Pokémon. There's only one Pokémon here, and it's the rarest of them all...Mew!"
This is the final course of the game. The only Pokémon encountered here is Mew, the legendary Pokémon. Since there is no other Pokémon, the whole course is just a long encounter with Mew. This doesn't make it easy, as Mew has a shield that protects it from pictures. If you take a picture with the shield on it, you will end up with nothing but a sharp flare. The way to break this shield is to hit a Pester Ball or Apple at it. All ways to get Mew out of the shield are split up in three parts. If it is still not understood clearly, look down in the Pokémon Available section for more information.
As this is the first part, it is the easiest of them all. Mew is known to be a playful Pokémon, so, it continually taunts Todd Snap right in front of the Zero-One. This makes it very vulnerable to a Pester Ball, so hit it when you get the chance. When you hit it, Mew will fly away with the shield obviously damaged. You need to do this two more times in order to break the outer shield completely. Since it still has the inner part, photos won't do good.
The second part is a bit harder than the other one, presumably because Mew is now taunting in a more defensive way. Also, it is harder since Mew is now a moving target; it will only be seen for a moment before disappearing and reappearing behind Snap. All the same, keep trying to hit it with a Pester Ball or Apples--same drill, three times with the Pester Balls or Apples. It may be a bit slower due to Mew moving away; you may throw a Pester Ball or Apple and think yourself victorious when Mew dodges by using Teleport. Eventually, the inner part will fall, leaving Mew defenseless.
This part is crucial. Now that Mew is defenseless, it no longer taunts you--instead, it is seen chasing its shield, which is getting further away. This is the only part where Mew does not have its shield, so you need to definitely be quick and take pictures--although Mew is pretty fast, so it might get away. If you hit it with an item, it will spin and look around, making it easier to get a good photo of, however you need to be quick as Mew will just teleport away again.
If Mew is successfully hit, it will make good for some more pictures--if these steps are not done, however, Mew will get its shield back. Don't worry; you don't have to go through the trouble you did earlier, as now it only requires one hit for Mew's shield to get destroyed.
This is a list of Pokémon you can take pictures of.
|Mew|| The whole course is a long encounter with Mew, and it is not unlikely that the whole course will be necessary to capture a good photograph of this Pokémon. Photos are distorted by Mew's bubble shield, resulting in nothing more than a big lens flare. So, it becomes necessary to knock this shield away, which is done in three parts.
