Looks like info on the Mew machine hope this can be translated!

Edit : could it be 3 ways of getting mew? Obviously the Mew machine is 3rd, 2nd could be event and not sure what 1st would be?

From what I see it's information about the Nintendo Space World '97 Mew Distribution.



I dunno as the banner in the picture says 96?

96 comes before 97 in the alphabet. ;)

It wouldn't be inconceivable that a magazine could have a date from a year earlier.

Oh of course sorry complete dumb moment it would of been a picture of a previous event. Would really know why they have the 3 different diagrams but like you said it's probably about the event.

We can only guess. Who knows why they did anything the way they did back in the day. I highly doubt anybody was asking these questions or documenting any of this sadly.

Talked to a friend/acquaintance who is living in Japan. This is what they had to say about this picture. 
" Hmm, well the page seems to just be about Mew in general (implies it was the first publishing of any info on Mew). The event is a serial code in the bottom corner of the page, which I saw in some other pictures, but I didn't notice much data about the Pokemon itself. I'll focus on that and see if I can get more info."

Just did it and that Mew cant be transferred to PokeBank 

The only Mew that'll pass Pokebank is the one in the Gen 6 and 7 archive, eng or JPN one,

in the vc folder

I meant from VC/Gen 1.

(since we're talking about VC)

legitimately speaking, only Japanese emerald Mew from faraway island can be shiny,

but I don't think pokebank enforces any of those restrictions.

I have been using ENG Faraway Island Shiny Mew online without Problems tho cant be traded, wondertraded or uploaded to the GTS. But the VC Event one can and even on Shiny.

I would advise against that, though.

Both scenerios (ENG shiny Mew and gen 1 shiny Mew) aren't shiny and we should respect others preferences to not want hacks.
[but if they explicitly want hacks then, go ahead lol]

I found this thread a year ago, I'll try to sum it up the story since it's in spanish: http://www.pokexperto.net/foros/index.php?topic=27460.0

OP was asking about the Pokémon 2000 championship that was held in Madrid (the winners would later go to European and World champsionships, though that was only announced after the tournament ended), specifically he asked if a Mew distribution was really held there, as all he knew were rumors.

Some users supported the rumors, somone even posted that back in the day he was given a Mew he was asured it was legit (not gamesharked/glitched) and the OT was "DJ" (I haven't been able to contact this user, since he hasn't been active since 2012).

On 2015 user Pirk appeared, and he said that he attended the tournament, that he had been given such a Mew (along some merchandise) and that the OT was "D-J" in fact. He dusted out his old GB and though his cousing had started a new game in his Blue cart (were he received the Mew), he had his tournament team and a clone of the Mew in his yellow cart:
 8018543c8fa93b30127b7349bf6ce148.jpg

On July 2016 I contacted Pirk to ask about the Mew and I also wanted to ask Pirk to ensure it was fully EV trained so IVs could be calculated (we later discovered that it in fact was fully EV trained).

Finally on february 2017 Pirk and I were able to meet and I dumped both his Blue and Yellow savegames. Even though the Blue save was deleted, when starting a new game only Party data and box 1 data is deleted, so I hoped the Mew might still be in the other boxes. The very same Mew was found in one (same attacks, stats, etc, a 1:1 clone, or maybe the original).

Pirk told me that in order to receive the Mew you had to show the staff that you had 150 pokémon, then they'd give it to you. It came at level 5 according to Pirk and the distribution was made via direct trade.

Up until this point everything seems like good news, but there are some oddities about this distribution:

- The DVs are not the fixed ones we know most (if not all) gen 1 Mews had. (there's a chance the NINTEN Mew had different DVs).
- The data in the Mew matches more that of a wild pokémon than that of a gen 1 mew (compared with the ones we have, remember we have both mew machine AND the Toys R Us direct trade mew samples)
- I haven't been able to find any spanish magazine that talked about the distribution, except for a very little mention many months later on the official Nintendo magazine that, in response to a letter, said that Mew was in fact distributed at the tournament in Madrid. The magazines (including official nintendo magazine) only covered the tournament, no trace from Mew distribution.
NOTE: I've talked with other people and others have confirmed that Mew was in fact distributed there.

So, what supports this Mew being the one distributed at the tournament?
- That more than one person has confirmed the distribution actually took place (and it was stated in official nintendo magazine, albeit it was a letter response).
- Pirk's word. He told me he cloned this mew many times, but that he never received any Mew from anyone and the only one he ever had was the one he received from nintendo, so there's no chance that the Mew in his yellow cartridge was a fake one and that the official one was lost when his cousing reset his blue savegame.
- That Pirk actually agreed to meet in person with me to dump his save. Would someone go as far as meeting a random internet guy just for a prank? I personally don't think so. (This is just circumstantial and my personal impression).
- In summer, I asked in a spanish forum if someone had been in Madrid in the distribution (that's how I found more people claiming they were at the event and Mew was distributed, but unfortunately none of them had their savegames). An user said he wasn't there, but that he dumped his savegame (he had the hardware to do so) and he had a mew someone cloned to him back in the day. He sent me the save and to my surprise this mew turned out to be exactly the same as Pirk's (except one move). This user lived more than 500km away from Madrid, were it was distributed and he received a Mew with the very same OT, ID and DVs. Prik did clone his Mew, and it really could be his very Mew that reached this other user 500km away, but the chances for that to happen seem extremely low to me. On the other hand, if there were multiple clones of this Mew to start with, the probability of it spreading trough the country increase exponentially. This to me is probably the strongest supporting point, simply because of probability, but of course there's always the chance that this was Pirk's mew traveling trough a chain of trades. Also, as I said, they only differ in 1 move (I'd personally expect more than 1 move being different), which is kind of a weak point.

My personal theory: this mew was really distributed there, but someone of Nintendo of Spain said something like: "I have a gameshark, why don't we distribute Mew? This will attract more people to the torunament" and they gave that person the green light. He started a new game and used a gameshark to catch a mew at level 5 or something like that (giving the mew random DVs), then he proceeded to clone that mew multiple times for the distribution (with whatever method). This may sound ridicule, but since I know how Spain and Spanish people think, I strongly believe this could have been the case. Simply put, they didn't know Mew distributions had some "rules" and didn't care to ask.

I leave it up to you to decide wether this Mew is legit or not. Someone even suggested that even if this is in fact the one distributed at the tournament, it would still not be legal if Nintendo of Spain made it in their own and didn't stick to "standard distribution rules" like fixed DVs.

Download Pirk's savegame with the mew: http://www.pokexperto.net/foros/index.php?topic=27460.msg2765479#msg2765479

ps: I'd like to know what others think about this

@suloku what you just posted is truly very interesting!

Speculation on the details of whether the Mew is an official distribution,
since none of the official channels (and magazines) acknowledged that a distribution was even done at the first place.

I know its been a while, but has anyone got any updates or more info in regards to the Tamamushi Magikarp event? Im in desperate need to see if we can get a similar  download process, if one still exists, for one of these distributed Magikarps. Heck, id be willing to pay anyone thats willing to help out lol

Only 20 of them were ever distributed from what I remember, sadly the chances of finding a Tamamushi Magikarp 19 years later are almost 0 i imagine.

It's possible one of those 20 people might have dumped their save before the battery in the cart died, however the chances of them having uploaded that save and it even making it's way to English Pokemon communities are so small.

We really need someone who's active in both English and JPN speaking Pokemon Communities to look in to events like this. We'd probably have more chance of getting a JPN Mew, which as of now if anyone has i've never seen it shared, excluding the recent Virtual Console Mew of course.

You are going to need the hardware to dump a file from your cart to your PC.

This cart dumper/flasher or a Retrode with GB adapter are the easiest ways.

If you happen to already have a Game Boy flashcart and a Mega Memory Card, you can do it that way too, but it's a bit tricky.
