The elusive Mew was the first of many Cute Legendaries to be released. Mew seems to be the model for this type of Pokémon, as it was released first and has all of the aspects of a stereotypic Cute Legendary.
Celebi was dubbed the "New Mew" when it was introduced in Generation II because of their similar size and stats, as well as the status of being the last in the National Pokédex as of its generation and being unobtainable through normal gameplay.
Unlike Mew and Celebi, Jirachi is not located at the end of the National Pokédex as of Generation III.
