'''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.
==Generation II==
[[File:Celebi_Shrine251Celebi GS.png|thumb|120px150px|left|Artwork of {{p|Celebi}} onfrom its [[Ilex Forest shrine{{pkmn|shrine]]Gold inand [[Ilex Forest]]Silver}}.]]
'''Celebi''' (Japanese: '''セレビィ''' ''Celebi'') is a Psychic and Grass-type Pokémon known as the Time Travel Pokémon. It is referred to as the guardian of forests, protecting and nourishing them as it travels through time. It shares a special connection with [[Ilex Forest]] and the [[GS Ball]], which is referred to as a gift that transcends time.
Introduced in {{pkmn|Gold and Silver}}, Celebi was the second Mythical Pokémon to be released. Created by [[Ken Sugimori]], it was dubbed the "New Mew" soon after being revealed because of its similar size and stats with Mew, as well as the status of being the last in the [[National Pokédex]] as of its generation and being unobtainable through normal gameplay. It first became available in Nintendo Space World 2000 in Japan, with numerous other events coming in the following years worldwide. Celebi was the first Mythical Pokémon to obtain an in-game event in {{pkmn|Crystal}}, through the GS Ball key item, which was distributed over [[Pokémon Mobile System GB]]. It starred in the fourth Pokémon movie, [[M04|Celebi: Voice of the Forest]] and much like Mew before it attained a cultural phenomenon status within the Pokémon communities.
==Generation III==

'''Jirachi''' (Japanese: '''ジラーチ''' ''Jirachi'') is a Steel and Psychic-type Pokémon known as the Wish Pokémon. It is said to able to grant any wishes written on the tags on its head once awake. It only wakes up for seven days once every thousand years. If in danger, it will fight without waking up.

'''Deoxys''' (Japanese: '''デオキシス''' ''Deoxys'') is a Psychic-type Pokémon known as the DNA Pokémon. It mutated from a space virus when exposed to a laser beam. It is able to change its form, altering its appearance and traits. The crystal on its chests acts as its brain, as well as a defense mechanism.
Although it retained a base stat total of 600, Deoxys was the first Mythical Pokémon to have a base stat distribution other than 100 in every stat. Additionally, Deoxys introduced the concept of [[form differences|Formes]] which altered the distribution of stats.
In spite of being included in the preceding games, {{pkmn|Ruby and Sapphire}}, Deoxys was first made available in {{pkmn|FireRed and LeafGreen}}. Officially revealed in late 2003 as a leading character in ''[[M07|Destiny Deoxys]]'', players gained were first able to capture Deoxys by use of the [[Aurora Ticket]], which provided access to Birth Island, where Deoxysit appears in-game.
While Deoxys originally had little impact on the story of [[Generation III]], {{pkmn|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}} introduced the [[Delta Episode]], a mission following the {{player}}'s first completion of the [[Hoenn League]], in which the player must stop a meteor from hitting the planet by destroying it with a befriended [[Rayquaza]], revealing a Deoxys within. This marked the first and so far only time a Mythical Pokémon was available in-game without the need to attend an event or use a download code.
Contrary to its classification in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, [http://www.pokemoncenter.com/info/Pokemon_Characters PokémonCenter.com] notably calls Deoxys a Legendary Pokémon rather than a Mythical Pokémon, creating some confusion over its official designation.
