Mew is notable for its unique ability to learn every [[TM|Technical Machine]], [[TR|Technical Record]], [[HM|Hidden Machine]], and [[Move Tutor]] move (except those exclusive to a particular Pokémon or group of Pokémon, such as {{m|Draco Meteor}} and {{m|Secret Sword}}).
Mew is the last Pokémon in the [[List of Pokémon by Kanto Pokédex number|Kanto Pokédex]].
It is a member of the [[Mew duo]] along with {{p|Mewtwo}}.
