Members

Project Mew scoreboard

The highest rank a person can get in Project Mew is the rank of Chaser. The first two Chasers to appear are Danika and Quillon, with their role being to distribute missions and evaluate the performance of other Project Mew participants. In JN110, it is revealed that Gary has also qualified to become a Chaser.

In Project Mew, there is a category of Trainers who receive challenges and must complete them through Trial Missions. They are known as Challengers and the three Challengers with the most Tokens will become Chasers at the end of the Chaser selection.

Trial Missions

Project Mew Trial Mission menu

As an initiation process, a challenger must fulfill a mission assigned to them and fulfill it within a certain period. Upon completion of this mission, they will be allowed to participate in Project Mew as a Challenger.

In order to continue to participate in Project Mew, a Trainer must pass certain Trial Missions assigned for them. The Trainer taking on Trial Missions receives a list with three missions divided by colors and must choose only one of them to fulfill. Once the mission objective has been achieved and verified, the Trainer will earn a special token on their Rotom Phone as proof. The challengers with the most tokens become Chasers, and during the selection process, those with less than 4 Tokens were automatically disqualified.

During evaluations, a Challenger can receive more Tokens than others depending on how they perform during the mission, along with showcasing attributes such as good leadership or teamwork. The items collected during Trial Missions are brought to be verified by a Corviknight, and some missions that involve battles are recorded by a drone.
