Mew (Japanese: ミュウ Mew) is a major character from Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

History

A painting of Mew

Mew first appeared as a Taillow, landing on Cameran Palace and then transforming into a Pichu. It enters the palace where some of the Pokémon gathered, and meets Ash's Pikachu. It then transforms into a Treecko. It continued transforming, including into an Aipom to play with Ash's Pikachu. Ash and his friends released their Pokémon to play with what they thought was an Aipom.

After taking them to an attic, Kidd Summers sent her two Weavile after it. To escape, it teleported, along with Pikachu and Meowth. It then transformed once again into a Pidgeot and flew the Pokémon to the Tree of Beginning. While Ash and the others were looking for Pikachu, Mew kept it entertained with toys.

When the Tree of Beginning's automatic defense system absorbed Ash, Mew saw how distraught Pikachu and Ash's other Pokémon were over the loss of their Trainer. As a result, Mew restored all of the humans who had been swallowed, but this act nearly killed Mew as it sent the Tree of Beginning's biological parts into shock and causing it to start to crumble. Lucario stepped in and was able to save Mew, but ended up sacrificing itself.

Mew is believed to still reside at the Tree of Beginning. It was revealed at the end that a Bonsly that Ash and his friends had befriended remained behind, finally allowing Mew to have someone to play with all the time.

Mew is said to come now and again to the palace to get some of the toys. It brings these to the Tree of Beginning, where it would play with them. At the end of the film, Sir Aaron's gloves could be seen among its collection.

Personality and characteristics

Mew has a very playful personality, as it was shown haven taken many toys from the palace to its home at the Tree of Beginning. However, when it saw Pikachu and the other Pokémon getting sad for being separated from their Trainers, it willingly endangered its own life to bring them back, showing that besides its childish nature, it also had a very brave and unselfish side.
