Mew (Japanese: ミュウ Mew) is a legendary Pokémon who first appeared in the first ever feature-length movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back.

History

Mew made a cameo appearance at the start of the movie, and did not take a major role until later. A Mewtwo was cloned from Mew's DNA, extracted from Mew's eyelash. Later, Mew started appearing around New Island while Mewtwo was testing his starter Pokémon clones. Mew followed Team Rocket into the main part of the island so it could challenge Mewtwo, convinced that a naturally born being would always be more powerful than its clone.

Mew traveling

When Mewtwo's other new clones were born, Mew came with them, but disappeared momentarily. When Mew reappeared shortly later, it tried to reason with Mewtwo, which led to a battle between the two (in the Japanese version, Mew claimed that it intended to destroy cloned Pokémon because it viewed them as inferior, in stark contrast with Mewtwo's desire to eliminate all natural life). Ash stopped their battle by throwing himself in the middle of their attacks, which turned him to stone. After Ash was revived by Pokémon tears, Mewtwo flew away with its clones and Mew went with them. At the end of the movie, Ash briefly saw Mew in the sky, though Brock and Misty didn't see anything. After the credits are over, a brief scene plays showing Mew flying towards the mountains.

Mew makes a quick appearance in the hour-length special Mewtwo Returns. Mewtwo sees it after being thrown into the Purity Spring, although, like in the first movie, it may have just been his flashback.
