Way to Find Mew in Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow

Blue
This is a way to find Mew in Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow or even your local Spice Guru. It will most likely require you to restart your saved game, depending on how far you have gotten. But isn’t it worth it for this rare Pokémon?

Method 1 of 4:Gambler and Youngster Glitch

1, Restart your saved game if you went too far in the game

2. Go in front of the Gambler below the underground path from Lavender Town to Celadon City and press the Start button immediately
Go in front of the Gambler below the underground path from Lavender Town to Celadon City and press the Start button immediately. Instead of not letting you pause the game, your Pause Menu will appear.

3. Fly to Cerulean City
Fly to Cerulean City. The gambler will see you after you press fly and you’ll hear his music, but you will then fly to Cerulean City anyway. Your start button won’t yet work, but it will shortly after.

4. Go up to the Youngster in the bush area just after Nugget Bridge
Go up to the Youngster in the bush area just after Nugget Bridge. He’s the second Youngster you come across and he’s facing up. He’s also standing above a “Lass”. He’s very easy to beat now, as he only has a Slowpoke.

5. Defeat the trainer and fly all the way back to Lavender Town
Defeat the trainer and fly all the way back to Lavender Town. Your start button should work.

6. Walk to the left exit of the town

8. Catch the Mew with the Master Ball or weaken it using attacks

Method 2 of 4:Trainer and Youngster Glitch

1. Restart the game if you went too far

8. Beat the trainer (he has only a Slowpoke) and use Teleport again

9. Walk north again
Walk north again. At some point the Menu will pop up. Exit it and you should find yourself in a battle with Mew!

Method 3 of 4:Using a Glitch to Catch any Pokémon

1. Extend your catching prowess
Extend your catching prowess. Now that you know how the trick works, use it to catch other Pokémon. Fighting the Youngster will always result in a Mew encounter because his Slowpoke has a Special of 21 (15 in hex). But if you fight something else before returning to Route 8, it will change which Pokémon you encounter. For example, say you chose a starting Pokémon other than Bulbasaur and regret your decision. Bulbasaur’s hex number is 99, which converts to 153 in decimal. Now, you could fight a wild Pokémon with a Special of 153, but the only place to find that is on a Level 64 Chansey in the Unknown Dungeon, and those Chansey are quite rare. Worse, they only have a one-in-sixteen chance of having the right Special. Fortunately, there is a solution: Ditto’s Transform, which copies the stats of the opponent. This means that you can catch any Pokémon in the game by following the steps set forth in this section.

2. Catch or raise a Pokémon with the proper Special stat (153 for Bulbasaur)
Catch or raise a Pokémon with the proper Special stat (153 for Bulbasaur). You can find a complete list of which decimal value is needed for each Pokémon at the bottom of the page.

3. There
There. Fly away from the Gambler battle.

4. Fight any trainer that can see you from a distance and walk up to you (this is necessary to both unlock your Start button and trigger the Route 8 battle)
Fight any trainer that can see you from a distance and walk up to you (this is necessary to both unlock your Start button and trigger the Route 8 battle).

5. Find a wild Ditto and let it Transform into your Pokémon with the proper Special
Find a wild Ditto and let it Transform into your Pokémon with the proper Special.

6. Beat the Ditto (or just run away) and immediately fly to Lavender Town without fighting anything else
Beat the Ditto (or just run away) and immediately fly to Lavender Town without fighting anything else.

7. Enter Route 8, and Bulbasaur (or whatever) will appear
Enter Route 8, and Bulbasaur (or whatever) will appear.

8. Note that since only the least significant of the two Special bytes is used for this, you can also add 256 to the values listed above and use that Special to get the same Pokémon
Note that since only the least significant of the two Special bytes is used for this, you can also add 256 to the values listed above and use that Special to get the same Pokémon. This is important because there are a few Pokémon, such as Kangaskhan, whose identifying value is lower than the minimum Special that any Pokémon can have. In Kangaskhan’s case, you can find her by using a Special of 258 (2 + 256).
Also note that when you perform this trick, any trainers you fight after the Gambler will be “used up.” Make sure you have enough unused trainers to catch all the Pokémon you want! Fortunately, the Gambler can be used to initiate the trick an unlimited number of times.
