The only way to get Mew in Fire Red is using a gameshark, or action replay, or a Nintendo event.

OK, seriously, guys? Get all 151 Shiny Pokemon and then breed them, and afterwards smash your Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance on your head? That is ridiculous. If you think someone is going to believe that, then you are wrong. -.-  I wish people would tell the TRUTH.

Don't waste your time beating the Elite Four, or capturing all Kanto Pokemon! It will never happen if you follow these ridiculous methods. I got all 150 Kanto Pokemon, (seriously, I did), and you do not get the first National Dex starter, Cyndaquil, Totodile, or Chickorita, and you do not get a Level 70 Mew, so the one comment at the very bottom is lying, and is wrong.

Oak just says something like this (sorry, I cannot remember), "Congratulations! You have caught all 150 Pokemon!". I was furious when I found this out. 1) You don't get Mew if you do, and this is the truth, and 2) Half of these methods are most likely nonsense, for getting Mew. If many of them are different, then most likely, none of them are right!

I do not get why Mew is not available in any of the games really; how are you supposed to "Catch 'Em All", when some of them, are impossible to get?

In older games, Game Boy Color, in Yellow, Red, and Blue, you could get Mew, but, you cannot (I am not sure, unless you cheat), trade from Game Boy Color, to Game Boy Advance.

You could have gotten Mew from a special Nintendo Event, in which you bring your copy of Fire Red to a local Toys "R" Us and they wirelessly download where to get Mew on "Mystery Gift", but that was like in 2004, when the game first came out.

They are not going to do those any more though, BUT now if you have Diamond or Pearl or Platinum DS Games (only one) you can bring 1 of those Versions to a GameStop, and you can get Jirachi, but I don't think you can trade Pokemon from DS to GBA, but you can migrate Pokemon from Fire Red/Leaf Green to one of them, but you cannot EVER, EVER get them back.

So, yeah, the only 2 ways are: Using a hack; GameShark or ActionReplay, or being present at the Nintendo Event at the time they had it. I am not calling anyone here stupid who sometimes listen to this nonsense (some of them, not all of them are nonsense), but why would you believe this? No offense, if I offended anyone here.

These are the Pokemon you can get in Fire Red, without hacking or cheating:

  • Articuno, at SEAFOAM ISLANDS; I caught with Ultra Ball.
  • Zapdos, at POWER PLANT, I caught with Ultra Ball.
  • Moltres traded from Leaf Green, at MT. EMBER 1 ISLAND, I caught with Ultra Ball.
  • Regirock traded from Sapphire (don't ask how to get any of the Regis please, because I did not hack; if you do it messes up your game.), I caught with one Ultra Ball after weakening down to red.
  • Regice traded from Sapphire, I caught with two Ultra Balls after weakening down to red.
  • Registeel traded from Sapphire, I caught (after failed attempts) with about 20 Ultra Balls after weakening down to red.
  • Kyogre, traded from Sapphire, FORBIDDEN CAVE (I think, I forgot the name, sorry), I caught with Master Ball.
  • Rayquaza, traded from Sapphire, SKY PILLAR, I caught with Ultra Ball, (a level 70 Rayquaza).
  • Mewtwo traded from Leaf Green, in CERULEAN CAVE, I caught with Ultra Ball.
  • Suicune traded from Leaf Green, no exact place, I caught with Master Ball. Ok, for Suicune, please do not ask how to get him/her, because it'll take a lot of typing to tell how. For more help to catch Suicune, look on YouTube or Google, and...
  • Latias (red Dragon, Psychic Pokemon) traded from Sapphire, no exact place, I caught with Ultra Ball. Like Suicune, don't ask how to get her. Latias is a female, so you can breed it with Ditto (I think; I haven't attempted it yet), and you can get another Latias. Sorry if I am wrong.
  • Pokemon you can get in Fire Red, that I have not caught yet...
  • Groundon, trade Groundon from Ruby to Fire Red, I do not know where Groundon is; I don't have Ruby, hopefully I will catch with Ultra Ball.
  • Latios (blue Dragon, Psychic Pokemon), trade Latios from Ruby to Fire Red, like Latias, if you already caught her, choose the same method, hopefully I will catch with Ultra Ball.
  • Raikou, you can get Raikou in both Leaf Green and Fire Red, like Suicune do not ask how to get Raikou; all three; Entei, Raikou, and Suicune do not have exact places to catch, hopefully I will catch in Leaf Green after starting the game over, in Ultra Ball.
  • Entei, same as Raikou and Suicune, don't ask how to get them, hopefully will catch in Ultra Ball.
  • Ho-oh, hacking or cheating or being at a special Pokemon Event, to get the ticket to Navel Rock. Or, I think, in Pokemon Colosseum, when you summon all the Shadow Pokemon, you can download to your Gameboy Advance, Lugia or Ho-oh. Look on Google for more information.
  • Lugia, same as Ho-oh


Hope this helped! And, please, some people, don't fall for some of these comments about getting Mew, you will just waste your time, or release all of your Pokemon for no particular reason!

(No Idea how old this is). The first comment on getting a million this and that, and beating your game across your face or whatever was amusing. But then some of you started copying and trying way too hard to be funny.

Apparently you're making fun of people playing Pokemon. But for some reason, you know what the pokemon league is.. Alongside other things only a true player would know... Fooling yourself  by fooling others (especially on the internets) is depressingly sad.
I'm 23 and I played Pokemon. FFS, my dealer plays it. The games are really fun. I couldn't care less what the cartoons are about, or collecting the cards. As a GAME, it's fun.

I've played adult-based games easier than Pokemon.  I see it as a game where you pick characters to battle each other..nothing more.

I don't go around sayin "pika pika".  I live with my girlfriend in my own apartment, and am not a basement freak. I like a game where there are a lot of options and rewards. And so far there are no other games with the same mechanics as the Pokemon series. If there were a more adult-based version, I'd play it..but there isn't.

Ironically, you guys who make fun of the games people like need to grow up. And if you play Wow or any other mmo/rpg, you have no room to talk at all. As a matter of fact, that's worse.

ANYWAY...The only way to get a mew on ANY game is through an event or by cheating. NO OTHER WAY - which is the reason I quit playing the games. You're told to "catch them all" and then you try to get them all, and then it becomes impossible to get some of them.

They should make the games where all are obtained on a single game and, as newer gens are created, just keep adding them on. All the trading, the events, and using other games to migrate,  are clever money-making schemes. And if you have to cheat, it's not rewarding.

You can't. I've been reading your answers and you guys sound so stupid. If you want a mew, you can't get it. Too bad. Unless you cheat.

There are numbers of Pokemon that have never been made to be caught in any Pokemon game.

Stop listening to these idiots. How can you fill your pokedex if you don't have mew? Yeah, you see - these people don't know what they say.

Quit being so negative, cuz yes there is a way to get mew, i can't remember how, but there is. I have done it before. Not all of these people are idiots, even though most of them may be. Like the one who said smash it against your head...that is the most immature, idiotic thing i have ever heard. But quit being so pessimistic cause everything is possible, it is possible to get it...but yes it is a glitch, you do have to use a glitch to do so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First trade a Pokemon from another game with cut, so you don't have to go on the ferry to get it. Then go through and beat the game.

You have to have a Golem with strength. Surf over to the truck by the ferry station. Use strength with Golem on the truck. It will move and a mew will appear. It should be a level 25!

This is the only way.

When I was younger, I was traded a mew that knew only HM's. Later on, I got another copy of blue as a gag and decided to actually play it.

I wanted mew soooo bad, I went to cheats.ign.com and there was a full walkthrough on all the steps to attain the mew. It worked for me and I was astonished.

It was level 3 and I had to be extremely careful. That was on regular blue version, though, and I put that on my mother's grave I caught one without cheating. Like I said, though, that was a walkthrough for blue version that got me the mew.

There are a number of ways in which you can get mew in the Fire Red series. The easiest is to get a cheat cartridge. Some suggest that it is necessary to catch all the different 386 pokemons, and then you have to level up twenty of these to level 100.

You have to beat the Elite four using just any two of your Pokemons. It is important to defeat these four ten times, with different sets of two Pokemons each.

Finally, you have to defeat the four with just one Pokemon after letting the rest nineteen go. You now have to return home and gather a quarter of all the money and leave.

The mew will encounter you outside. It is important that you use a Pokeball to catch it, instead of fighting it.

You have to catch squirtle, charmander and charmander, then go to mount moon and catch a clefairy. After you have done this, go and talk to Bill he will tell you a load of stuff.

Then put your clefairy first in your party. Talk to Bill again and he will tell you about a man called Cosmos Kaz in viridean forest.

Have 1000 battles in viridean forest, then he will appear. Battle him and, if you win, you will get a mew.

You can't. Trade from emerald event or cheat. The person who says to beat elite 4 10 times with 2 pokemon is wrong. You're just going to waste your time.

You could get mew in the really old Pokemon game called Pokemon Yellow special edition by using mew glitch.

You must defeat the elite 4, and then go to the cave near the city with the water gym, and go into the cave that's normally blocked. You will go into the cave and find a mew or mewtwo.

In the Sevii Islands did you mean breed at Four Island by unclone? Mewtwo can't be bred.

I have Mew on Pokemon Fire Red. The method that I used seems to work best. All of the other methods that people say are clearly ridiculous and unrealistic.

Here is my method:

- First, you must have attained level 100 with at least 3 Pokemon.
- Next, you must beat the Elite Four a million quadrillion infinity times.
- Then you must catch or breed Shiny versions of all 151 original Pokemon.
- Then you have to train all 151 of your Shinies to level 100.
- Then you must go to the Day Care (important) and use the PC there to set free all of your Pokemon, leaving just your shiny Mewtwo.
- You must then travel to a Poke Mart and purchase 999 Pokeballs (no less)
- Then take your Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance, or whatever you are using and smash it on the ground as hard as you can. When you turn it back on, Mew should be added to your party.

I saw this YouTube video by this account called AltEisenSpirit claiming to "make Snorlax run away:

  • purchase 69 Roar TMs and Paralisys heals
  • then battle the pokemaniac right above Lavender Town, use a Vs. Seeker on him
  • battle him with a pokemon Lv. 20 or lower, INTENDING to lose
  • then get a flying pokemon
  • fly to Pallet Town talk to your Mom and have her heal you
  • go to your room and press down in your bed for 5 seconds or more, and play your NES
  • go talk to Professer Oak
  • then fly to Pewter City, and immediately fly to the old guy who gave you the Teachy T.V.
  • And fly to Fuchsia and go to the Safari Zone and you can supposedly walk right through the tiny shrub line when you walk in right next to the water, and Mew should be there"
I'm not guaranteed it works, so don't blame me. If you want to reply, say Pnuemonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis!

If you have not gone to the s.s.anna yet, you might be able to get Mew. Because Mew is on the RIGHT side of the docks you are on.

You have to surf that way and you will see a truck. (Mew is behind it.)

Then use strength on the truck, push it to the left. Once the truck is out of the way, you will see Mew! Mew is level 30.

Another way to get Mew is beating the Elite Four 50 times, and then talk to Professor Oak, he will say the cave near crlina or the city with Misty is infested with Mews! All Mews are level 90.

The last way is to bring your game boy, fire red/leaf green/ruby/sapphire/emerald, and cable to Toys'R'Us and go to the game place. Ask for a Mew and you might get one.

You beat the pokemon league 12 times, then you go to where you find mewtwo and you encounter a level 70 mew.

Use Ultra balls or a Master ball. Or fill your pokedex kanto and national and talk to Professor Oak and he will give you mew level 70.

First you dump all your money and buy as many pokey balls as you can, beat the elite four 100 times, and fish in one island for a year non-stop without saving, then you will find mew of 3 island anywhere. I have tried all the other ways - this is the only one that works.
