Description

 
Project Mew Trial Mission menu

Objective

The official members of Project Mew, known as Chasers, are attempting to find Mew in order to figure out the origins of Pokémon. Their intention is to search for it from a giant tabletop mountain that is fogless only for one week between the dry and wet seasons.

Trial Missions

In order to participate in Project Mew, a Trainer must pass certain Trial Missions assigned for them. The Trainer taking on Trial Missions receives a list with three missions divided by colors and must choose only one of them to fulfill. Once the mission objective has been achieved and verified, the Trainer will earn a special token on their Rotom Phone as proof. The challengers with the most tokens become Chasers.

The items collected during Trial Missions are brought to be verified by a Corviknight.
