You can lock this thread if the same thread is there...

It's about have you caught Mew without any Glitches or Cheats nor Gameshark?
Though I haven't caught it b'coz I never use Gameshark........ :D

The only way to legit catch Mew, is through an event for Emerald, you need the old sea map which was only released in Japan during 2005. So unless someone here GTS'd it over, or lived in Japan, I don't think anyone has it legit..... I WISH I DID THOUGH!!!! :)

How could you GTS a legit Mew on to an advanced gen game?

I got may mew by mailing my emerald across seas to Japan, beacuse a guy on ebay was charging people money so he could get the old sea map, then send it back over. I had to check the guys feedback before I sent it though, beacuse I didn't want my game to get stolen, but it was a risk
I took, because come on It's MEW. My parents paid for the whole thing over the internet, and the total came down to like $75.00. I did the same with some of the other tickets too.

I got my Mew in a similar situation with someone on this very board. I mailed them my Emerald and they got the Old Sea Chart for me.

Yes, I do have Mew on my Fire Red. I got it from an event at a local Toys R' Us that only went on for a day where Mew was traded to either your Fire Red or Leaf Green. It didn't cost any money, but you did have to wait in a very long line. I arrived early, so I only had to wait for about an hour, but I bet the people who arrived later had to wait a maximum of 4 hours. That was over a year ago, and, I have to say, events are so much faster now. The latest event I went to was for a Lv. 100 Regigigas. All you had to do was walk in, download the Mystery Gift, and that was it. It amazes me how far they've come.

Having a legit Mew would be great! But the sad thing is, they might all be extinct soon.. o_o..Imagine all the Mews that stay in the games and never get transfered. Soon the internal batteries will just die and then, you've lost your precious Mew. And even more unlucky for people who have legit Mews in R/B/Y or G/S/C.

Yeah, i got it, but then my game was stolen. My precious emerald! With 18 LVL 100s and a mew! It is possible to GTS it, just migrate from emerald to D/P/Pt, and go from there. I cried after hat happened. and then i missed an episode of neighbours. worst day ever. D:

I didn't go to any event, sadly. I wonder what it's like to have a Mew or fully complete the Kanto part of your Pokedex...

I have three legit Mews. I got them on three different games, and I obtained them via a event that was here in the UK a couple years ago. I am now in process getting me another Mew via Pokemon Ranch for my Diamond Pokedex. :)

Nope, never got one "legally" lol. It's not really a big deal for me, though.

I had one, but not through the event they had at Toys R' Us; I believe it was Toys R' Us anyways.

I'd love to so I can complete the Pokedex on FireRed. But I probably never will. =/

I don't recall ever hearing of the the Old Sea Chart being given out. However, I do have the one from the TRU event back when the eight movie came out.

I never got it, sadly. My friend has it hacked but I want to get it legitly. If theres never another event for it or another chance to get it I will never get all my pokedex filled up. I really don't like having non-legit pokemon, even if the only way to get them is to cheat; then I will just never get them :) It's what I do.

I attended the Toys 'R Us event and got 4 Mew. The wait wasn't too long, but there were annoying nubs in front of me saying that Charizard was the best pokemon. Anyway, my Mew either rot in the PC or are cloned/palparked.

My sister says her Mew is legit and shes going to sell all her pokemon games in about ten minutes to the Exchange, I better take that Mew now! *Update: I got Mew and now I am not really liking my all legit rule because that could have been my one and only chance to ever get one!*

It was only ever released in Japan. So I am sure all those who sent their games off to get the Ticket was scammed. It would be impossible to send a PAL, or USA version of Emerald to Japan to get the Ticket. It wouldn't work.

Yes, I have gotten Mew in my firered/leafgreen at Toy R' US event long time ago and I remeber transfering the Mew's to my Emerald and then I traded some for cool other event pokemon with some of my friends. So I never cheated by getting pokemon and I dont own a cheating device anyway. lol

How could you GTS a legit Mew on to an advanced gen game?


If you are talking about getting it onto D/P/Pt then when you get it on Emerald with the event then you Dongle/Pal Park it over and then trade it over GTS.

There were other events, although those involved having Mew traded to you or receiving it without having to battle it...


Which ones?


Im not trying to be a jerk, I've just only read about one and I am curious.

Nope, not in an official Pokémon game.

Though I have caught it in a ROM hack. (and obviously, that doesn't count)

The Toys 'R' Us event in the US (OT: MYSTRY), and the similar one in the UK (OT: Aura). I think they were done to promote the 'Lucario & the Mystery of Mew' movie, hence the OTs.

EDIT: The US one used trading (the stores got a cartridge with boxes full of Mew), and hence took a while. The UK one had a special cart which directly added a Mew to your party, which was faster. There was still a pretty long queue, though. As far as I know, the USA one used the Wireless Adapter, and therefore only worked with FR/LG (and Emerald?). The UK one was done by a link cable, so any 3rd gen game could get it.

No I have not caught Mew in Pokemon Ruby, Pokemon, Sapphire, or Pokemon Emerald.

Nope, first of all, I'm not that good at capturing. Second, I don't got to Nintendo events. x[
