Meet Mew! (Japanese: めだちたがりやのミュウ Attention-Hog Mew) is written by Akihito Toda and illustrated by Kagemaru Himeno. In English, it is the ninth book in the Pokémon Tales series. In Japanese, it is the 42nd book. It is 16 pages long.


In this book, the author found a very clever way to explain why people hardly ever see Mew. It turns out there's a whole group of Mews living in the heavens, but they have one cardinal rule: Don't show yourself to a human unless you have a good reason! However, one Mew who's shown himself to kids lots of times has a dilemma when a kid he's recently shown himself to is ridiculed by his friends when he says he saw a Mew. However, the other Mews realize that sometimes it's more important to help a friend than obey the rules, and they come up with a plan to help the little boy.


Mew is the rarest and most mysterious Pokemon of all. In this book, a boy sees Mew, but no one believes him. Touched by the boy's sadness, Mew hatches a plan to turn the skeptics into believers.
