In 2002, Club Nintendo, the official Nintendo magazine of Mexico, gave away Mew and Celebi to the readers that visited the offices with an issue of the magazine of the corresponding month along with their Game Boy and a Gen I or Gen II game (players that only brought a Gen I game could only get Mew, though). Writers Alejandro "Graveyard" Ríos and Juan Carlos "Master" García were in charge of the distribution (the former can be seen in the pictures of the right).

In Norway, players could not send their cartridges in to obtain Mew during the Pokémon Tour (which started on November 2, 2000), due to the Mew machine being used on the tour. Nintendo Norway claims to have returned the Mew machine to Japan shortly before Easter 2001 (April 15, 2001), although the Pokémon Tour continued until May 26, 2001.
In Sweden, players could send in their cartridges before the Mew on Tour event to obtain Mew before non-members, and could still send in their game cartridges even after the tour was completed. The service that allowed players to send in their cartridges to obtain Mew began sometime between September 3, 2000 and November 30, 2000 (the start of Mew on Tour).

These Mew all have the following IVs: 2 HP, 6 Attack, 4 Defense, 3 Speed, and 8 Special. This is an anomaly, as most other Mew distributed in Generation I (in both European languages and Japanese) have the same IVs, which these differ from.
