Name:Japanese name for Mew
OT: A Japanese player
A fateful encounter seems to have led it across space and time from the Johto region in the good old days.
There was a limited-release event distribution for Mew in VC RBY which used the 22796 ID, which could then by traded up via Time Machine to GSC (and Poke Transporter will not allow a Mew with any other ID to pass), but that event's IV bytes were guaranteed to be F/F/F/F, rather than the x/A/A/A that produces a shiny in GSC. Any Mew whose origin mentions "the good old days" can thus never properly be shiny, and if it is then something about it has been edited on some level.
