Which of these two do you prefer Mew or Mewtwo? I like themboth myself but if I had to pick one over the other I would have to say Mewbecause at the time it was capable of learning every move that existed duringthese games.

Mew. It's so cute, and besides, I don't care about overall stats. /stupid gamer.

I prefer Mew for his Morphing capacity and the ability to learn a lot of moves. I consider Mew as the best pokemon in the 1st gen.

I'd go with Mew. Much wider move pool, and a lot rarer.

When I was a child I kind of loved Mewtwo and thought it was the strongest Pokemon ever. At that point, I didn't know about Mew's existence. When I heard about Mew I was amazed, it sounded like a very rare Pokemon and hard to get. I think I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to catch it. Eventually, I gave up and I didn't find out the glitch that allowed you to catch Mew in Red/Blue till a few years later. When I caught Mew I wasn't as excited as I was the first time I caught Mewtwo (maybe because I was a child and I thought a 7-level Mew was weaker than a 70-level Mewtwo? I don't really know).

Though I like Mew more than Mewtwo right now, I'll go with Mewtwo because it meant a lot to me more than Mew.

Allez, hop!

I'll go with Mew! It's small, pink, and adorable. And it learns every TM and such and that's awesome to me, considering I love Pokemon with crazy movesets. Fly is fun for a Mew. Mewtwo is awesome too, but Mew had so much mystery around it back in the RBY days, especially since not many of us knew the cheat to get it in the game without attending an event.

Mew because it's rare, can learn every TM, transforms, and it's cute.
Mewtwo because it's strong.

Mew!! It just so cute! Mewtwo seemed to serious and angry to me. He is kind of intimidating... D: But Mew is mischievous and charming!

At first, Mew was my favorite. I can't even begin to tell you how happy I was when I got Mew from the event on my LeafGreen. But after I watched the movies with Mewtwo, I started to like it more, and it's just really cool.

Based on both the first gen games and overall, I prefer Mewtwo over Mew. Mewtwo is a lot more powerful and easier to access, plus I never had the patience to try and do the Mew glitch.

The only thing that got me really excited about Mew when I was younger were the rumors about it hiding under the truck by the SS Anne. When I found out they weren't true, I just became disinterested in it and moved on.

I would love Mew, besides looking cute, it also looks like it wouldn't mind being petted or groomed, or sit on someones lap. Mewtwo looks like he wouldn't enjoy it.

Mew for its cuteness factor and the ability to use Transform besides Ditto.

A few years ago, I'd have went with Mew since it was rare, but now that Mew has had a Wi-Fi event in 2010 + available from Pokémon Ranch, I'll go vote for Mewtwo because its stats are simply better.

Mew because it's the original. It was also the first pokemon to be registered, and this match up with it's myth.

Also, mewtwo can have better stats, but mew is a much more versatile pokemon.

I would go with Mewtwo in terms of looks and stats, but I would go with Mew in terms of in-game because you can get it easily via glitch and have plenty of things to do with it, unlike Mewtwo, who can't do crud because you've pretty much finished the entire game.

Mewtwo for its appearance and overall superior stats. Mew may be able to learn any move, but it pails in comparison to the former's power.

I think Mew is just too cuddly to say no to. Mew is just so pink and cute and has one of the best movepools ever! I still like Mewtwo but it's not cute like Mew.

Both are great pokémon, but i have to vote Mewtwo.
Indeed Mew is a great pokémon, that can learn everything, is so cute and adorable, but i think MewTwo is better because of his background, the story they gave him, making him so kick ass.
