The Biology and Legend of Mew
A report by Cedric Phillipe.
Mew – the ‘New Species’ pokemon – is a legendary Psychic type Pokemon. It normally has a small, pink, bipedal, feline-like frame, with a long, thin tail. It’s said that it was the mother of all other species of pokemon, as carries the DNA of all other species. Because of this, Mew is able to transform into any other pokemon, and is able to learn almost any move. I theorize that its biological make-up is so basic that though adjusting its very own DNA just slightly, it is able to shape itself into another pokemon.
This ability is also shared by Ditto. However, it seemed that though Ditto has also achieved this basic biological make-up, it has lost the ability to hold a form of its own (Which seems like more of a warning to anyone who wants to attempt to copy Mew’s basic DNA). This raises the question of how Mew is able to hold its form, when its ancestor cannot. It’s possible that Mew’s DNA is ‘perfected’, and has mastered the ability of changing its biological structure. Which makes Mew, in short, a ‘perfect’ pokemon, and it should be the rest of our species' ‘goal’ per-say.
To get back to the topic though, Mew’s basic mode of transportation is floating. With legs as short as its own, it probably wouldn’t be too fast just walking. I would say just to ground it, but its transformation abilities would prove to be the issue. So to defeat it – if you’d want to, Mew is said to be the most naïve and child-like of all the legendaries – my conclusion would be to disable the move ‘Transform’, use the move ‘Smack Down’ or “Gravity’ to ground it, then hit it hard with a Physical Dark-Type move, such as ‘Night Slash’.
