Mew (Japanese: ミュウ) is a Mythical Pokémon and the DNA source of Mewtwo in the Pokémon Adventures manga.

History

Red, Green & Blue chapter

Mew debuted in the first round of the Red, Green & Blue chapter, A Glimpse of the Glow. Here, Red and Blue see it in Pallet Town and try to catch it, but fail. It is known as the "Phantom Pokémon" and was chased by Team Rocket. It is revealed later on, that Mew inhabits the area near Pallet Town because it lacks the pollution created by humans in other areas.

Team Rocket's chase would continue all the way in The Jynx Jinx, where they attempt to regain the disc containing Mew's habitat and information from Green, but fail and are tricked into stealing an empty one she prepared. They catch up to Green and her unwilling ally Red soon afterward, and interrupt them when they tracked down and attempted to capture the rare Pokémon. However, when their Jynx was able to almost succeed, Mew's powerful Psychic attack left them listless, and soon escaped. The small samples of its DNA that the Rockets acquired, however, led to the creation of its powerful clone.

When Blaine was explaining about Mewtwo's origin to Red, in And Mewtwo Too?! Mew appeared as a silhouette. Mew is later briefly seen looking into Indigo Plateau in A Charizard...and a Champion after Red wins the Pokémon League championship and decides to return to Pallet Town with his two fellow Pokédex Holders.

FireRed & LeafGreen chapter

It later reappeared in the FireRed & LeafGreen chapter, where it saved Red and the people of Vermilion City from the impending crash of the TR helicopter. Mewtwo notices this, and realizes that he too had a root to trace itself back to, as it was born from Mew's eyelash.

Emerald chapter

Mew was mentioned in the Emerald chapter, where Mr. Briney had given Ultima, soil from Faraway Island, Mew's birthplace. Ultima then instructed Gold to bring it as it will come in handy. When he arrived, he gave to Emerald who used it to calm down the rental Pokémon under Guile's control.

It appeared again in a fantasy in Omega Alpha Adventure 6, where Emerald explains he got soil from Faraway Island.
