Okay, I'm not going to even give my Mew's moveset. There are so many movesets it can have.

Rock-slide hits Multiple foes and is coverage. Earthquake hits everything and is coverage. Heal-bell restores team mates to normal condition. Fire-punch is coverage while Light-screen/Reflect is team support.

Does equake affect everyone in a tripple battle
If in the middle yes, if on the side then the closest 3 Pokemon.

Double/Triple Battle

Mew @ Life Orb/Smooth Rock
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Transform
- Tailwind
- Sandstorm
- Psychic

Okay, nobody cares about any moves besides Transform. That is right, this is a Transform Mew. Part of the classic Double Landorus and Excadrill Triple Battle team. Tranform into Landorus, then KO everything with the combined might of three of the most powerful Earthquakes of all time.

IMO this is the best Special Wall in UU

Mew @ Leftovers
Trait: Synchronize
Calm Nature
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 SDef/ 4 Def
- Substitute
- Roost
- Night Shade/ Seismic Toss
- Will-O-Wisp

With max HP EVs Substitute takes 2 Seismic Toss to break with 101 HP. After a burn the Sub can usually 2 or 3 hits from physical attackers. I prefer Night Shade over Seismic Toss just so Chandelure doesn't shut Mew down and force it out which ruins its set up.

Mew @ Weakness Policy
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 252HP / 100 Def / 156 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Amnesia
- Iron Defense
- Baton Pass
- Roost

This set works well with a speed passer like ninjask blaziken or scolipede. with some speedboosts it wil outspeed anything so you can use amnesia or iron defense or roost before they hit you. If you are lucky youre opponent wil hit you with a bug dark or ghost type attack. if you have maxed out youre defences you can use baton pass. use baton pass to go in a bulky sweeper like ttar. it wil have the speed to outspeed almost anything an it is indestructible.

Double/Triple Mew Special

Item: Leftovers/Wise-glasses
Ability: Synchronize
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 Speed, 252 S.Attack, 6 Hp


Blizzard hits all foes and is coverage. Surf hits everything and is coverage. Thunderbolt is coverage, Air-cutter hits all foes but is not very powerful. Heal-bell/Light-screen/Reflect choose you support move.

Mew @ Leftovers

Trait: Synchronize

EVs: 252 HP / 196 Def / 60 SDef

Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)

  • Super Fang
  • Roost
  • Transform
  • Night Shade

An interesting set, that I'm actually using in a rain team of mine.

Super Fang breaks down walls, and that works well. Roost heals off HP, as he's gonna be taking hits a lot. Transform gives him the option to copy an opponents layout when they're low on hp ( Useful ) while Night Shade is instant damage to walls again, or to anything.

Kind of a wall breaker I guess. He can play a lot of roles.

Screwtheprez (Mew) @ Icy Rock
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 204 HP / 252 SAtk / 52 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Will-O-Wisp
- Hail
- Volt Switch
- Blizzard

" Screw the president " - Josh

I'm Josh.

Will-O-Wisp makes this thing bulky and cripples sweepers. It's a nice slot to have on a lead to cripple lead sweeps and switch ins.
Hail sets up the weather in the case that you indeed to want to " Screw the president " and not use Obamasnow. Next Volt Switch + Blizzard is bolt-beam coverage. Blizzard actually hitting because of hail, and Volt Switch being an escaping attack to use after setting up hail. I personally love using Mew > Mr. President.

Mew @ Leftovers

Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Swords Dance
  • Flame Charge
  • Zen Headbutt
  • Drain Punch

One of my new favorite sets. EVs give bulk and speed.
Swords Dance, well...boosts Attack! What else can be said? xD
Flame Charge is a way of doing damage, but raising Speed. Even at base 40, it will hurt after Swords Dance.
Zen Headbutt is STAB, and also hurts after Swords Dance.
Drain Punch ALSO hurts after Swords Dance. It'll restore your health if it's running low.

Annoying Mew @Leftovers
Timid Nature(+speed, -attack)
Ev's: 252Spe, 252Hp, 4SpA

~Thunder Wave

This set is highly annoying as well as particularly useful. This mew acts as a useful lead and has great speed allowing it to cripple fast or physical attackers with the status of your choice. Then, if the Pokemon has used a set-up move, such as quiver dance, swords dance, etc, you can steal the stat boost and be better off than the opponent after crippling it's speed or attack stat and performing a sweep with their Pokemon instead via Transform. The extra Hp helps to beat out the opponent after a transform and psyshock allows you to attack frail fighting/poison types with stab.
