Biology: Added Super Smash Bros. as the other game to feature Mew's protective orbs
Mew is a pink, bipedal Pokémon with mammalian features. It has a rounded, wide snout, triangular ears, and large, blue eyes. It has short arms with three-fingered paws and large hind paws with oval markings on the soles. Its tail is long and thin with 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]] and the [[Super Smash Bros. Ultimate|Super Smash Bros.]] series, it can create a green, yellow, or pink orb of energy around itself for protection, although only the pink orb is seen in the latter.
[[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.
