AUSTRIA Mew (from Jipitoy 2000 Event)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello to all fellow Pokémon fans and trainers!

As I had found my Pokémon Yellow save file to be still alive and containing probably the rarest still-living distribution Mew (or at least one of the rarest), I decided to share with everybody. But first, let me tell you a short story here.

When I was about 10 years old, my parents took me with them to receive Mew on my GB cartridges, and I was excited like never before! Of course, I did know nothing about the glitch back then, so this felt even more special to me. The event, as I remember, took place on 2 days (friday and saturday) only, and from talking to all of my friends, it seems that event was only held in Vienna, Austria, and only in one small shop called "Jipitoy" in the shopping mall "Gerngross". Even without knowing all this, it is the most cherished memory since. I am so thankful that my parents made it possible to receive this Mew on both, red and yellow version.

I want to share my happiness and joy with all of you, so you can experience it too. The game saves I extracted with a GB01 cart reader from submodule.co, which I paid about 64€ for (incl. shipping). On my journey to restore and backup saves, I lost the game save of red (through a different device, called Mega Memory Card, which also was about 60€ ... pathetic device ...) but was able to distribute the yellow one to other cartridges too. I even bought a blue cartridge, so I can provide you all three versions of the Gen-1 games with that Mew.

It was very hard to remember all the details about the distribution event, I found out that the original shop was shut down many years ago, but with a little support from the new shop there I was able to get the shop's name at least. Not even Nintendo of Austria was able to find any further details, as I requested them to share with me. Back then, not only were these events rare in Europe but also not recorded online, or poorly.

DrLava and SnorlaxMonster from Twitter / Bulbapedia helped me a lot with this project full of passion.

You can find me on Twitter too, if you want to say "Hi" or just wanna share your excitement and happiness with me. --> DocMartin_HG

p.s. see entry on Bulbapedia: AUSTRIA Mew (Jipitoy 2000)

p.p.s. note, that the ".sav" files are in german language. (scroll down to download)

 

EDIT August 20th / 2020:

I uploaded pk1 files of both, the stock condition and the trained condition from my original savefiles. Have fun but PLEASE don't forget to inform me beforehand and credit me if you forward data to a third person.

Right now, I think I had a moment of enlightenment. I do believe that Mew isn't this important to me because of how rare it is but rather because this is the most iconic thing that will always remind me of my parents. I feel so relieved to know it's not gone forever! 💖😭💖

Thank you very much for this contribution. As someone who never got a legit mew or celebi myself back in the day (got traded a most likely glitched/sharked one), it is always a joy to see more of these rare mew getting preserved, and the feeling of getting yet another one (and an european one to say the least!) is still as fresh as with the first one.

Dear friend, I am glad to read your lovely comment and I hope you'll enjoy it a lot! :)

 

I was worried so many years not knowing if it still survived but in the end I was blessed with the gift of still having it 💖
