no edit summary
* Mew was a little-known secret when {{game|Red and Green|s}} were first released in Japan. Even Nintendo was not initially aware that [[Shigeki Morimoto]] had programmed it into the game.<ref></ref>
* In the games, lost scientific reports state that Mew was found in the forests of [[Guyana]].
* In [[Generation III]], Mew was the only [[Kanto]] Pokémon not catchable in either {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, as well as the only legendaryLegendary Kanto Pokémon catchable in {{v2|Emerald}}.
* Mew has shown up in six opening sequences, more than any other legendaryLegendary.
* Mew is the only genderless Pokémon able to learn {{m|Captivate}}, and the only genderless Pokémon besides {{p|Cryogonal}} to learn {{m|Attract}}; however, when used by genderless Pokémon, these moves will always fail.
* Unlike most [[legendaryLegendary Pokémon]], Mew needs only 1,059,860 Exp. to get to level 100, whereas most legendaryLegendary Pokémon need 1,250,000. It shares this trait with both {{p|Celebi}} and {{p|Shaymin}}. The three of them also share base 100 stats.
* In [[Super Smash Bros.]] it has a chance of 1 out of 151 to appear, in [[Super Smash Bros. Melee]], its chance to appear is 1 out of 251, and in [[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]], its chance to appear is 1 out of 493.
** This is a reference to how many Pokémon were out during the release of each game (151 in [[Generation I]], 251 in [[Generation II]], and 493 in [[Generation IV]]).
* In an interview with [[Game Freak]] and [[Creatures, Inc.]] in [[Nintendo Power]] issue 134, [[Tsunekaz Ishihara]] revealed that he created Mew two weeks before game development was finished.
* In the US release of Mew as an event for {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, it was released on the ten-year anniversary of the original release of {{2v2|Gold|Silver}}.
* Mew was voted the most popular [[legendaryLegendary Pokémon]] in the {{n|Official Pokémon website announces Pokémon Power Bracket|Pokémon Power Bracket}}.
* Mew started the trend of every generation introducing a legendaryLegendary Pokémon with a base stat total of 600 and a stat distribution of 100 all around. Others that follow this trend include {{p|Celebi}}, {{p|Jirachi}}, {{p|Manaphy}}, {{DL|Form differences|Land Forme}} {{p|Shaymin}}, and {{p|Victini}}.
* In [[Pokémon Stadium 2]], if the player visits Earl's Academy and check the moves for Mew, the game falsely displays {{m|Flamethrower}}, {{m|Ice Beam}}, and {{m|Thunderbolt}} as its [[Egg move]]s.
