Mew is a pink, bipedal Pokémon with mammalian features. ItsIt snouthas isa shortrounded, andwide widesnout, and it has triangular ears, and large, blue eyes. It has short arms with three-fingered paws, and large hind legs and feetpaws with oval markings on the soles,. andIts atail is long, and thin tail ending inwith an ovoid tip. Its fur is so fine and thin, it can only be seen under a microscope. Mew is said to have the {{wp|DNA}} of every single Pokémon contained within its body, and as such is able to learn any attack.
As demonstrated by its behavior in the [[M01|first]] and [[M08|eighth]] Pokémon movies, it shows signs of intelligence, curiosity, playfulness, and even selflessness. Mew is incredibly adaptable, able to travel freely in the air or underwater. As seen in [[Pokémon Snap]], it can create a green/, yellow/, or pink orb of energy around itself for protection.
[[Pokémon Mansion journals|Reports]] found in [[Cinnabar Island]]'s {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}} note scientific expeditions that have sighted Mew in [[Guyana]], South America, the place where it was first discovered. Since Mew can make itself invisible at will, very few people have {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Rare Pokémon|knowingly seen it}}, leading some scientists to declare it extinct and most to assume it to be a mirage. It will only show itself to a person who is pure of heart.
