Trivia: Added a line regarding Mew's English Stadium Entry: "A mythical Pokémon of South America which had been thought extinct. A growing number of people have seen it recently."
* [[Generation VIII]] is the only generation in which a new Mythical Pokémon was not present in the debut [[core series]] games' data at launch.
* [[Pokédex]] entries for {{p|Dratini}} state that it was believed to be a mythical Pokémon until it was caught by a {{tc|fisher|fisherman}}.
* {{p|Mew}}'s Pokédex entry in {{eng|Pokémon Stadium}} uses the words 'mythical Pokémon' in its English entry prior to the term being officially used outside Japan.
* {{p|Lugia}} and {{p|Ho-Oh}} were treated similarly to Mythical Pokémon in the core [[Generation III]] games and Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. They cannot be obtained through normal gameplay in these games, nor are they required to complete any Pokédex. Lugia and Ho-Oh have been treated the same as other [[Legendary Pokémon]] in all games starting with {{g|HeartGold and SoulSilver}}.
