{{Bulbanews|On the Origin of Species: Mew}}
Mew is similar to a vertebrate {{wp|embryo}}. It shares many traits with {{wp|catscat}}s. Its morphology is also vaguely similar to a {{wp|jerboa}}, having large hind legs and a long skinny tail. It is believed by scientists to be the {{wp|last universal common ancestor}} of all other Pokémon, which, along with its resemblance to an embryo, may be a reference to the {{wp|recapitulation theory}}.
 
Moreover, Mew's design was based on Mewtwo. It was made simpler than Mewtwo's so that it would take up less space on the cartridge.<ref>https://nintendoeverything.com/game-freaks-shigeki-morimoto-on-mew-why-it-was-initially-rare-design-more/</ref>
