Mythical Pokémon are regarded as among the rarest in [[Pokémon World]] mythology. Some are seemingly unknown to most people, while others are thought of as stuff of legends. They typically receive minimum exposure during normal gameplay, usually being revealed to players months or years after the debut of their respective [[generation]]. Upon being revealed, they are celebrated across the numerous media, often starring in [[movies]] and being featured prominently in [[merchandise]]. They are [[distribution|distributed]] to players in special occasions such as screenings of Pokémon movies, events in retail stores, online distributions, or [[spin-off games]] that feature special connectivity. No Mythical Pokémon is required to complete the [[Pokédex]].

'''Mew''' (Japanese: '''ミュウ''' ''Mew'') is a Psychic-type Pokémon known as the New Species Pokémon. It is believed to contain the genetic codes of all Pokémon in its DNA. Initially thought to be extinct, a [[Pokémon Mansion|scientific team]] has reported sightings of it in [[Guyana]]. [[Mewtwo]] was created after a series of experiments based on Mew, and is thus considered to be part of a [[legendary duo]] with it.
 
Mew established the convention of Mythical Pokémon with its release in {{pkmn|Red and Green}}. Its base stat total of 600 and stat distribution of 100 to each stat also created a trend followed by several Mythical Pokémon released later in the series. Pokémon following this trend include {{p|Celebi}}, {{p|Jirachi}}, {{p|Manaphy}}, {{DL|Form differences|Land Forme}} {{p|Shaymin}}, and {{p|Victini}}.
Mew became the Pokémon to establish the convention with the release of {{pkmn|Red and Green}}. Designed by [[Shigeki Morimoto]], it was initially unavailable and unknown to players, before being revealed by [[Satoshi Tajiri]] in the spring of 1996 on an issue of [[CoroCoro Comic]]. Initially, a lottery was held to distribute the Pokémon experimentally to a limited number of players, while a [[Mew (Wizards Promo 47)|promotional card]] was given for included in the January issue of CoroCoro Comic. Mew contributed to making the series popular because of its mirage nature, with [[Easter_egg#Truck|rumors]] about ways to obtain it being passed on through word-of-mouth. Its success was mirrored in the west with the eventual release of {{pkmn|Red and Blue}}, making Mew a prominent character of the first generation, co-starring in the first animated movie, [[M01|Mewtwo Strikes Back]].
