Desde que fueron lanzados los primeros títulos llamados Red y Blue nacieron un sinfín de especulaciones referentes a los Pokémon, una de ellas era la aparición de Mew.

Pokémon is one of the most recognized franchises by most players around the world, which covers different industries such as toys, comics, clothing, among others, but where it has had more relevance is in video games. Since the first titles called Red and Blue were released, there have been a lot of speculations about Pokémon, one of them was the appearance of Mew.

En el momento que fueron desarrollados los juegos Pokémon Red y Blue no se tenía planificado la introducción de este monstruo, ya que el juego cuando estaba totalmente finalizado ocupaba toda la memoria de los cartuchos de la época, sin embargo, cuando al código se le pasó un depurador para reducir un poco su tamaño, quedando apenas unos 300 bytes libres, algo que el programador Shigeki Morimoto aprovecharía.

At the time the Pokémon Red and Blue games were developed, the introduction of this monster was not planned, since the game when it was completely finished took up all the memory of the cartridges of the time, however, when the code was debugged to reduce its size a little, leaving only about 300 bytes free, something that the programmer Shigeki Morimoto would take advantage of.

Morimoto conjuntamente con la participación de otros programadores decidieron incluir a Mew como un Pokémon secreto, el cual se podía usar en cualquier momento. Este no afectaría la historia ni la jugabilidad dentro del juego, ya que no estaba destinado a aparecer de forma oficial, sin embargo, ciertos hechos cambiaron el rumbo de la historia de este pequeño Pokémon, convirtiéndose en unos de los más populares.

This would not affect the story or gameplay within the game, as it was not destined to appear officially, however, certain events changed the course of the story of this little Pokémon, becoming one of the most popular.

Satoshi Tajiri (presidente de Game Freak) decide usar un manga muy famoso llamado CoroCoro Comic presentando a Mew, con la finalidad de realizar un experimento y ver la reacción de las personas, para esto se diseñó de forma limitada cartas de colección de dicho Pokémon las cuales serían repartidas en varios tomos. Para sorpresa de Tajiri esto daría comienzo a una bola de nieve indetenible.

Todos hablaban de este Pokémon misterioso, especulando la posibilidad de poder conseguirlo en los cartuchos, esto era la intención de Tajiri, que los jugadores llegaran a formular rumores e historias sobre Mew. Fue así como el 15 de abril de ese mismo año se anunció el primer evento especial para obtener a este Pokémon, el cual consistía en una competición entre entrenadores. Aquí repartieron dicho monstruo a los 151 mejores participantes.

Muchas personas al ver que Mew era una realidad dentro del juego empezaron una travesía para conseguirlo, consiguiendo formas muy curiosas para poder adquirirlo.

Awesome! I didn’t know about this. I always thought Mew was planned to be in the game from the get go. Mew is something special. I’ve been so excited to get him in every Pokémon game since that first.

Hi @pusen, as you say Mew is very special since before the video game was released, at the beginning its developers never thought it would become one of the most popular Pokémon, all because of rumors that were spreading by the players themselves. Thank you very much for being in this little gamer corner.

Oh wow, I didn't know how Mew was first introduced in the original games. An event Pokémon from far before consoles would support internet connection - so cool!
This was definetly one of the most interesting articles I have read recently, thank for sharing!

Hi @goodguymate, excellent that you liked the post. These events were held regularly in Japan, but the interesting thing is how they put the extra content on the cartridge, that is, since the games were released they had this hidden content, you only needed to unlock it, something that was achieved with the development kits of that time.

Nowadays it is much easier, just by downloading a few patches from the internet you get the prize. How things change over the years.

Woa! Pokémon Yellow, is one of my favorite games of the franchise, I remember that it was launched motivated by the T.V. series of those years, however, the one that I dedicated more hours to it at the time was Pokémon Red. All of them are excellent videogames for me.
