    Hello, I've been redirected here by the guys from CEAL. I used to play Pokemon on my old gameboy and I got to participate in the Spanish Pokemon Championship in the summer of 2000 in Madrid (in the Amusement Park). I think those events where held worldwide that summer because I remember the final took place in Australia. During the championship we were allowed to get a Mew from Nintendo, the only way to get one without the using glitches or exploits. Back then I also owned a Bungy Gameboy Xchanger so I was able to download the savefile before the battery went dead. As a result I've got a savefile with a L5 Mew with Id number is 01495 and trainer name EUROPE. If you guys are interested I could gladly send you the file, this is a direct dump from my Spanish Pokemon Yellow, 100% legit and haven't been transferred to any other game (I played crystal in japanese so I couldn't send it over). Those days I also got a save file on an Australian msg board with an Australian Mew. I uploaded the save file to my pokemon red and used it play. This Mew is most likely legit but i put moves on it and raised it to level 100. Id number is 20824 and OT is NAL (I'm assuming it stands for Nintendo of Australia maybe?). If you guys are interested in any of the Mews I'd be happy to send them over. I kept the save files just in case and I hope it could serve some purpose. I even read that it was possible to use a 3DS with a custom firmware and upload the old save files into the 3DS and then transfer to Pokemon Bank and Pokemon Home! Regards, PS- I posted previously on the link the person from CEAL suggested but I think this would be more appropriate.

    I just want to thank everyone involved in this project. Is always amazing to find, recover and preserve events that we thought lost, but this is something special. From finding this hardware we've learned tons about the mechanics of the distribution machine itself and the code making possible to recreate even more events/campaigns. I hope that with this kind of discoveries and videos makes people know and get even more interest in this world. Some of us thought this would never be possible, now I think that everything can be. Probably we'll find the Mew/Celebi Machine too! Thanks to the owner of the device for letting us preserve the information about this. Thanks to RetroAli and Hard4Games - Tony for your effort and dedication to make people know about this. Flood the market! Thanks to our amazing event research team for their time and love for preservation. @Sabresite @Deoxyz @ajxpk @Gridelin And thanks everyone in this community for supporting this project.

    Hello: This is a save game I have after I participated in the Spanish 2000s Pokemon Championship in July 2000. The save has 2 Mews: the original L5 Mew I received from the Nintendo staff during the tournament (It's been almost 20 years but I think i traded through N64 Pokemon Stadium) and a second Mew from Australia. I got a save game in a Australian Pokemon forum back then, uploaded it to my friend's Pokemon Red and traded it to my own game. I used the Australian Mew to play the game so it's at level 100, EV trained and has custom moves. I wished I had kept it in pristine condition but it was my favorite pokemon back then. The Spanish Mew was legitimately traded but you'd have to take my word on that, they didn't give us any certificate. The save game is for the Spanish version of Pokemon Yellow, it won't work on the English version. Regards, Pokemye.sav

    The save was too big, and wouldn't open on PKHeX. Luckily, splitting it in half was enough Contains 2 LUIGIW Mew from @Allegedly137. It appears one is untrained. pokemon_red_dex_2mews1.sav

    Ok guys! Here they are! Both of the Mews in this one file! Box one. I was stubborn and wanted to do the use the save data transfer stuff myself, mostly because it sounded like a fun thing to mess around with and I wanted to backup my gameboy camera stuff too~ I traded the mews off the the blue and yellow they were originally in onto this file. I did back up both that blue and yellow before doing this, if for whatever reason this file is a problem (missingno did briefly visit back in the day but was promptly deleted after realizing he wasn't safe. Didn't mess with him much.) I have searched high and low for my certificates of authenticity. I really really doubt I got rid of them, but alas they aren't where I expected them to be. I swear I will return to this forum if they ever show up, even if it's a few years from now. I may have higher quality pictures of my photos on a floppy they gave out, if preservationists want them and the files aren't corrupted yet. pokemon_red_dex_2mews.sav

    I'd suggest removing all other "fake" pkm files of this mew, to avoid confusion. The one posted above contains the full data found in the savegame. Even though corrupt, the mew data was intact and I can confirm it matches a mew machine distribution. The mew has been in gold/stadium 2, so it doesn't hold the item anymore.

    Hopefully this is a good place to add to this with some findings: First off, for B2W2, the block for Battle Subway starts at 0x21B00 (instead of 0x21D00), but otherwise it's pretty much the same, so just change that and you're good. 0x21D2C was indeed some "Continue" flag, specifically for Single Trains. When I did a full set of 7 wins it changed to 02. I changed the current/record wins to 14 from the info we already had and changed that to 03, and on my next set I got the subway boss (who pops at match #21). Immediately after unlocking Super Single Train, I changed its current/record wins to 49, and also changed 0x21D36 to 07, and also got the boss at the end of the next set of 7 I did. For a full list: Current/Latest Wins: 0x21D08 - Single 0x21D0A - Double 0x21D0C - Multi w/NPC 0x21D0E - Multi w/ Friend 0x21D12 - Super Single 0x21D14 - Super Double 0x21D16 - Super Multi w/NPC 0x21D18 - Super Multi w/ Friend Record Wins: 0x21D1A - Single 0x21D1C - Double 0x21D1E - Multi w/NPC 0x21D20 - Multi w/Friend 0x21D24 - Super Single 0x21D26 - Super Double 0x21D28 - Super Multi w/NPC 0x21D2A - Super Multi w/ Friend "Continue" Flag - Should be desired amount of sets completed +1: 0x21D2C - Single 0x21D2E - Double 0x21D30 - Multi w/NPC 0x21D32 - Multi w/ Friend 0x21D36 - Super Single 0x21D38 - Super Double 0x21D3A - Super Multi w/NPC 0x21D3C - Super Multi w/ Friend You can basically see that they just move in increments of two bytes, with just a single gap between the normal and single trains. I suspect that's the Wi-Fi train stats. I am currently in the process of confirming the two Double Trains and the Multi Trains w/ NPC but there should be no reason for the rest to be any different. TL;DR Assuming you have a Super Train unlocked, set it's continue value to 07 and it's current/record wins to 2A and profit. You don't technically even need the record wins but might as well. Huge thanks to Saternoir for finding the initial data >.<

    I appreciate your efforts for this translation! Also, it reads like a scam e-mail XD All that is missing is to send $1000 to Bill to validate the transaction, so that he can send the Celebi over ><

    Good morning. I made a post on Reddit and it appears I have some Mews which are not yet being hosted here. I have three Mews. All from July 2000 in Milton Keynes Central where they used a modified SNES to dump Mew in to a free party slot on my saves. The OT name is UK. The TID varys. I have two untouched at level 5. One around level 42. Do you need these Mews?

    Just seen both videos. I actually saw this thread last week but I thought it was for gen 3 only...and I've just now realized it also harvored long lost gen 2 content. As axpj said, a dream come true. Confirmation of shiny celebi, DV being randomly generated with shiny probability being separated, and even knowing shiny mew was actually available and the only known gen 2 mew distribution! Really amazing job, thank you very much, I've been years puzzled by those questions. Edit: I was just thinking...IF DVs are randomly generated when the pokemon is already set to not be a guaranteed shiny, there's still the chance of it being shiny? Also, I think this was already confirmed, but all possible shiny dv combinations can be obtained for a guaranteed shiny right?

    That same event was held in Santa Monica too IIRC. I wish I knew where my Mew was. I didn't think or remember OT/TIDs back then. I do remember staff members having a line battling everyone and they had 3 Pokemon, all Mew, and kicked our ass.

    I have stickers from what is possibly the event, Pokemon League Nintendo Training Tour '99, although the certificates are identical to the ones Bulbapedia shows for "Pokémon 2000 Stadium Tour Mew". It's possible I went to more than one event... They had a photo booth area where I took these photos. Still looking for the certs, thought they'd be with these pictures. I know for certain that I didn't throw them out and will post them once I find them.

    So coincidental this has been brought back. I already made all those calculations some years ago and also came to the conclusion that the NINTEN mew in the picture did not have the standard DVs. Only piece of evidence I have is in this thread at Azure-Heights, the information being in the second post made by MewtwoSama: https://www.math.miami.edu/~jam/azure/forum/tuff/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=000106 User ryuko2002 (who has recently contributed de Spanish EUROPE and australian NAL mews) was registered there, I asked him to reach MewtwoSama in the hopes he still has the mew/backed up the savegame/calculated the DVs. There are other possible explanations: - Nintendo Power Magazine actually used gameshark to get the screenshots ( I think it may have been common practice in order to easily get trough the games and get the job done) - It was a test mew just for the magazine? - The NINTEN mew MetwoSama owned did have the normal stats, but it reached level 100 before being fully EV trained, thus preventing stat updates (read more here: https://www.math.miami.edu/~jam/azure/compendium/boxtrick.htm) ryuko2002 has tried in my stead to reach MewtwoSama at AzureHeights, let's cross fingers.

    Funny enough @TotalTSI've been working on this on and off over the day and I've come to the conclusion that it is nearly impossible to get the correct DVs for this Mew with just the picture. There are way too many assumptions that need to be made especially if the picture was only for publication. My first assumption was that it was like every other classic Mew distributed at the time with a DV spread of: HP = 5 Attack = 10 Defense = 1 Speed = 5 Special = 12 However, at level 39 the stats would not match that of an untrained Mew at the level which would mean that the Mew would have to have been in battle meaning that it would have acquired EVs. That said the possible EV spread for a Mew with the normal DVs and to have the listed above stats would be: HP = 961 - > 1848 Attack = 0 -> 8 Defense = 16129 -> 18224 Speed = 0 -> 8 Special = 1849 -> 3024 But, the issue here is the attack and special DVs are 0 -> 8 which is impossible consider the other EVs. The second assumption would be that the person leveled it up using Rare Candies and Vitamins and again that would be impossible since vitamins increase the stats EVs by 2560 points in gen 1 and the lowest possible HP EV is 1848. That would mean that the Mew was in battle and since the attack and speed EVs would be impossible for a Pokemon that saw battle which would mean that this Mew has a different set of DVs then the ordinary Mew given out at the time. So now that it is clear that this Mew has a different set of DVs then the known Mews what are the DVs? Well this is where the largest unknown of the equation comes into picture, how was this Mew trained? Just to get the first major hurdle out of the way the Mew in the picture has been trained. There is no DV combination that will give an untrained Mew at level 39 those stats considering the picture shows a defense stat of 96 when a Mew at the same level with a DV of 15 and EV of 0 will only have a defense stat of 94. Thus, the Mew has been trained. Now the question is how was the Mew trained? For simplicity I've come up with 4 possible scenarios for how the Mew could have been trained. Scenario 1 - Rare Candy and Vitamins: The problem here is we wouldn't be able to determine how many time the Mew was given vitamins. Scenario 2 - A new game file and the Mew was obtained as early as possible: This would be easy to test with putting Mew into every battle until it is at level 39. However, the problem with this scenario is that Nintendo Power needed a trained Mew for the picture and this method would probably take too long to get the desired result and the badge level cap for Pokemon obeying the player would probably be an issue. Therefore, probably unlikely. Scenario 3 - Got the Mew mid-game and trained it to level 39: Again easy to test, but the issue is badge level and slow in actuality; therefore, unlikely. Scenario 4 - Got the Mew at the end of the game and trained it to level 39: This one is the most believable scenario in my opinion since it would be fast due to high level wild Pokemon. However, there is still some unknown factors that would prevent someone from training a Mew to level 39 and then adjusting the DVs to match the stats in the picture. Even with scenario 4 sounding the most promising to find the DVs the next biggest issue would be what level did the Mew start at. Did they get it at level 5? What about level 10 or even level 15? We just don't know which makes the task at determining the DVs at this present moment all that more impossible. As well, non of my outlined scenarios might be right or could be a combination between then. We just don't know what the DVs of the Mew in the picture without more personal information about the player of that save file. Thus, bring me back to my opening statement that it is nearly impossible to find the DVs of the Mew just from the picture alone. Others are still welcome to try and determine the DVs, but this is just my take on the question and I could be missing an obvious piece of information that would make this task trivial.

    Thanks @RetroAli! I attached it to the main post of the topic. One really interesting thing in there is the OT on the Mew used in the screenshots: I know @suloku originally suspected that this Nintendo Power Mew would have this OT, and was surprised to find it was MARIO. I wonder if the default OT on the Mew Machines was NINTEN, and employees just changed it based on the event/location. I'm not quite sure how Gen1 DVs work, but if someone can calculate them based off of this screenshot, that would be much appreciated.

    I have a save file with 2 Mews, one from an Australia event and the one I got in Spain. Both Mews have the same IV but different trainer name and Id. Australia: HP 5, Atk 10, Def 1, SpC 5, Spe 12, TID 20824, OT NAL (level 100, EV trained: 383 288 270 278 292). Spain: HP 5, Atk 10, Def 1, SpC 5, Spe 12, TID 01495, OT EUROPE (level 5, no trained: 25, 16, 15, 15, 16). I got the one from Australia around April-May 2000 and the Spanish one in July 2000. My assumption is that every Mew from that time had the same stats, it would be much of a coincidence that the version in Australia and the version in Spain had the same. I haven't check other posts on this forum but I would bet the UK and Danish versions are the same.

    Hello, we would love to have your save files posted here. Well, being a cartridge distribution it wouldn't be legal because there's no way to transfer to GEN3+ with a real cartridge, but you can transfer it with PKHeX. I'm not sure if that Mew would pass through Pokémon Bank. That Mew was distributed using a Mew Machine? Do you have any certificate? Any info about the distribution itself would be good too.

    There's actually another person who went and shared photos of their UK Mews, but it disappeared, so that makes your Mews the only ones from that event. Thanks for your contributions! Edit: In case anyone wants to know where are those photos:

    Due to the nature of Gen 1 to 7 Mew transfer, there really isn't much that would be changed. I recall ID also being needed, not just OT. GF didn't even prohibit that mew being shiny, in fact the only shiny mew that can exist is a Japanese gen 3 mew, but the GTS has been full of hacked shiny mew... We all be glad if you can upload them. On a personal note, I prefer the savegame being uploaded rather than the pk1 file. If you don't mind uploading it, I would appreciate it. In any case any contribution is awesome!

    That's incredible. Also to add to the congo line of people willing to help, I too have a cartridge dumper and would be willing to dump whatever you need; I'm however in the same boat as Deoxyz and constantly using it.

    If you'd like to ship me your cartridge to dump for you, you can send me a private message. I'm willing to help. If you'd rather me send you the dumper I understand, though I'm actively using for the time being, so it'd be quickest with the former option. For credibility, I've done this before:

    Thank you! I seriously want to thank everyone in the Discord that has helped us decipher all of the technical stuff w/ the machine/preserving it properly because it's been SUCH a huge help. I'm so glad we got this into the hands of the community as opposed to some hoarder. With the PCNY machine popping up, it makes me think even crazier stuff might pop up in the future. (hopefully) Heck I'm still shocked about the Spaceworld demo leaking all that time ago and the fact that someone kept around the PCNY machine in the first place haha. Anything is possible!

    Was talking about this Mew to Gridelin the other day and we realized that the existing scans of this issue of Pokemon Power literally disappeared from the internet. (or at least from what we could find lol) I managed to find someone with this specific Pokemon Power issue and they provided scans for the cover & Mew information.

    Sorry for jumping in but you could try to use the 3DS Link (Dream Radar) editior in suloku's Gen 5 Save Tool to receive Landorus.
  33. 2 points
    Erm, that's if we assume the data you sent isn't an encrypted save. Otherwise, the data you sent is garbage data and isn't the save. If you can hex edit the rom, try looking for the save inside. or screenshot any area that have blank spaces and data at the end, that might be the footer of the save. Also take a look at the bulbapedia link I sent you, to help you figure out if it is or isn't a save. edit: Your save is in the game you uploaded (but I removed). Location.. This is your save, right? Edit again: location of another save: Both seems to be the exactly same tho.

    1. Already works. See shortcuts. 2. Drag and drop only applies to pkm/wc files, not encounter templates. You can still control & shift click between windows. Encounter templates have no byte[] data. 3. Showdown text does not accurately convey all details about a pkm. Keep in mind that the encounter database exists, and can easily search all encounters. 4. Separate program can generate {nothing}->gp1 data. PKHeX doesn't have a wondercard editor, as it is outside the purpose of the program.

    Full Documents Related to the Distribution, the full copy of Pokemon Power Volume 6 is attached to this post: In the Fall of 1998 Nintendo Power held a contest to “Win Mew for your Pokémon collection!” 151 winners of this contest would be given the chance to mail their cartridge into the Nintendo Power Headquarters and receive it back with a brand-new mew on their game save. Contest winners were notified by mail by 2/28/1999 that they had won the contest, making this the earliest known Mew distribution in the west. Recently while browsing reddit, I ran across a post from Th4tGuyUKn0 showcasing his Original Red cartridge that was one of the lucky recipients of this contest. After scrolling through the thread, Th4tGuyUKn0 stated that the battery on the game had not yet dried out; upon reading this I immediately messaged him explaining Project Pokémon and asked him if he would be interested in dumping his game save. Luckily, he was all for it! The only problem was he could not remember which of his five Pokémon cartridges he left the mew on, and did not want to risk draining the more than two decades old cartridge battery by checking. Th4tGuyUKn0 graciously decided to send me all of his cartridges so that I could backup the saves and hopefully find the mew. With the amazing research done by @suloku on these save files, we are confident that we have found the Mew in question. In the Pokemon Blue game save we discovered a Mew with the TID 51273 (the same Mew ID# printed on the back of the cartridge) and the OT ‘MARIO’. Suloku has concluded that this Mew is definitely legit. It shares the exact same DVs as the YOSHIBA Mew, matches Mew machine distributions data-wise, and has the same OT Nintendo character naming convention that several forum posts from 2000~ reference. While this does raise questions about what distribution the supposed ‘NINTEN’ Mews are a part of, this Nintendo Power Mew is most certainly legit. Suloku was also able to find the Mew in the red save file as a deleted Pokémon (moved or deleted pokémon can be found in box savedata if it was not overwritten by another pokémon being stored in the same slot). Attached is the the .pk1 of the 1998 Nintendo Power 'MARIO' Mew. Thanks very much again to Th4tGuyUKn0 for sending and trusting us with these cartridges and Suloku for all of the great research, none of this would have been possible without them. Happy holidays and enjoy! 151 - MEW - C23C.pk1 Pokemon Power vol 6.pdf

    When it starts and when it has file->open, it tries to detect where you've saved a save file. Having tons of junk and fake folders on your SD cards/etc will cause it to have to look through more files in order to find your most recent save file. You can turn off this setting here:

    For future readers: Turns out my initial solution in the first post is unique to my saves. If you want the Reveal Glass from the NPC, use the BW Tool linked to inject a Therian Landorus into your save, then proceed to collect it from Unova Link > Nintendo 3DS Link options of the Continue screen (It simulates that you received a mon from Dream Radar; you don't actually need 3DS or Dream Radar). Bring that Landorus to the Abundant Shrine, and you'll get the Reveal Glass. Tutorial here.
