  1. 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.
  2. You can use the english events, in fact we have reports from mexico, were the games were sold in english and the event there was held in english, that it could be received in spanish cartridges (the event being still in english). The reason is because mexican people often imported spanish language games from europe. We also tested this with a different event rom. Only incompatibility is japanese<->other languages.
  3. Did you use any kind of cheatcodes at any point?
  4. It was on pokémon stadium 2 and gen 2. 0 catch rate due to item used/removed, nicknamed due to a "bug"(?) in stadium 2 (and I think stadium 1, but I have yet to test it) not reading the full name, but stopping at the first 0x50 terminator. When pokemon comes back to the GB cartridge data present alredy in the box/party gets "added" to the remaining characters. This doesn't happen with OT. EDIT: also, YaniM told me that the mew had been in stadium 2 and gold before I even asked about it. When trasnfered to gen 2 mew holds a bitter berry. The mew was used and brought up to level 100, being confused at some point is very likely (and thus the item being consumed).
  5. 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.
  6. Just realized I forgot to post the translation of the letter.... here it goes
  7. You can use dolphin emulator if your wii isn't homebrew able to decript bin savefiles. Pkhex doesn't support my pokémon ranch? I saw something in the code one or two weeks ago and thought it was supported, but never got to test it. EDIT: I decripted it for you using dolphin (needs a nand to be created, either by installing a wii OS wad or any wad at all). Gonna try extracting the mons too (time to remember how to use my own program lol) EDIT 2: pkhex supports my pokémon ranch, so just drag and drop the savedata.bin file onto it. Be careful though, any pokémon marked as illegal is most likely leftover data in the ranch savefile, as many of them don't have any moves neither original trainer. Just dig trough the pokémon and find yours. Some seem to be hacked pokémon, maybe you used a cheating device or traded a lot? EDIT 3: I've looked at the savefile with my program. There are pokémon of 2 different trainers/games in the savefile, alongside hailey's pokémon. I don't know how pkhex handles this. If you drag and drop savedata.bin onto PR-extractor.exe you will get all the .pkm files (they are the same as pk4 files, the pk4 wasn't a standard when I coded the apps). They will be sorted by each of the different trainers they were deposited, and hailey's pokémon will also be named differently (you most likely want to left those out, since those are the pokémon hailey trades you when the conditions are met). EDIT 4: on further checking, it seems pkhex shows the pokémon in order: first haile's (your save has 44 of them, only 4 being in a "legal" state), then the pokémon for each trainer are also in order. Use whatever method you prefer. savedata.bin
  8. I do not have the rights to remove the savefiles, but here are the pk1 files of your mews, if you want to remove the savegames from your posts. 151 - MEW - 32BC.pk1 151 - MEW - 45B6.pk1 151 - MEW - D578.pk1
  9. Well, many people trasfered to gen 2 for dex filling, and batteries from gen 2 carts are long dead. Also, not so many people that have kept playing pokemon over the years were able to attend the events, and even less are interested in adquiring the hardware or sending the cartridge back and forth. Until I started contacting people over the internet there was only a single mew that had been dumped on the internet. Over the years several more have been dumped, but for example Celebi due to the only ones being available are those stored in pokémon stadium 2 is even more elusive, only having those from PCNY (and now we have even more of them, even shiny ones due to the event distribution having been dumped) and a couple from Celebi tour in europe (and having a CTOUR one is a really amazing luck as it is the rarest of them). So, not so strange. All gen 1 mew (or almost all) had the same DVs, as that's what nintendo intended for mew and mew machines fixed the DVs, so what makes them unique is OT and ID, but dumping them makes DV confirmation possible.
  10. Thank you very much for the contribution! The ones in the daycare seem to be clones form the one in the box 1 with ID 17926. I do have a couple questions: 1.- Is there any chance the 17926 Mew has been deposited in pokémon stadium 2 at some point? 2- The mew in the blue cart you mention is a clone of one in the red savegame you uploaded? If it's not, even if it is at level 42, if the ID is different it is still interesting for preservation, as the number of UK mews preserved would ammount to 3. Again, thank you very much for the contribution!
  11. 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!
  12. There's one there, use pkhex and drop it onto a swsh savegame, afaik conversion should be the same as HOME.
  13. As Deoxyz said we always welcome more preservation, even if gen 1 mews all had the same DVs. If you don't have the hardware to dump we can provide info on dumping devices if you are willing to adquire one, or maybe you'd be interested to send your cart over to someone to dump it for you and then return it.
  14. I've been running some tests and I did find out stadium 2 does not store the full pokémon name, either when boxing or when registering. I've updated the first post with this information. It seems Stadium 2 never actually stores the "full" name of the pokémon. The name is stored only until a 0x50 terminator is found. This makes depositing the pokémon in stadium 2 become "nicknamed". This doesn't make any actual different, but on the GBC games this wouldn't happen as the game seems to keep copying the bytes 0x50 bytes. Because pokémon data in boxes in the GB games isn't actually erased but rather the box slot is marked as "empty" when you withdraw/release/move pokémon, there is a chance that when you return the pokémon to GB the pokémon will become unnicknamed again, depending on the pokémon that was stored in that slot before. If one would like to return the pokémon to the "unnicknamed status", the easiest would be to have an unnicknamed evolved or wild muk stored in the box (because it's the shortest pokémon name and all chars besides the first 3 will be 0x50). Then put a pokémon from stadium 2 into that box in the same slot muk was. This is easiest done in a box with 19 pokemon, deposit muk in GB, withdraw, then deposit pokémon from stadium 2 into that box. This doesn't happen with OT name, it is fully copied. I suspect this is done so only full OT name + ID can nicnkame a pokémon (the pokémon being marked as nicknamed or not is irrelevant). Thus, this finding makes any registered pokémon recovered with the dumper be actually the same one you had back in your day. Also, friendship is reset, as if the pokémon was traded.
  15. 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?
