Locations: Faraway Island (Emerald).
Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the
Week. Today we’re reviewing Mew, the new specie Pokémon.
Mew is one of those classics you never forget,
everything, from the cry to that pink color reminds me that
kick-ass Pokémon that can learn every single move in all Pokémon
history… It has pretty good stats, hands down, it’s the best
“mini legendary” as I like to call them (Serebii and Jirachi are
in this category).
Synchronize is great for those toxic users or
some electric types with thunder wave, most of the times your
opponent will be forced to switch because of this ability.
There are many move combinations for this one
don’t you think? It is capable of many things, being great in
almost every strategy, it is a great addition to any team but
unfortunately not many tournaments will allow you to enter it…
Nature: Mild (+ Special attack, - Defense).
Equip: Salac berry.
EV´s: 252 Special attack, 252 Speed, 6 HP.
- Ice beam
- Calm mind
Some might want to use recover or soft-boiled
instead of ice beam or thunderbolt, you are free to do it, it is
just as effective as this special sweeper.
Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).
Equip: Salac berry.
EV´s: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 6 HP.
- Bulk up
- Brick break
- Shadow ball
Insert return if you don’t like shadow ball. The
physical sweeper is tremendous, amazingly good for a psychic
I could easily make another 3 move combinations,
but I’ll let you be creative, Mew can be a subpuncher, a toxic
user, a thunderdancer, a sunnybeamer, and you can pick any of
your favorite moves and try them in Mew. It was one of my best
Pokémon 10 years ago, and it is still one of the greatest for
When should I use this Pokémon?
If you were lucky enough to get one for your
emerald version, train it with caution and think what you are
going to do with it. It is a priceless Pokémon, use it whenever
you can, it’ll give you great results…
What should I use against this Pokémon?
Your best shot are dark types; however try fast
dark types along with some status condition, sacrifices must be
done to finish this one. Wobbuffet works as well…
With Pokémon Diamond and Pearl there are some new
and fresh possibilities for this one, however I’ll give you time
to get used to new attacks and battle modes. Someday we will
review this one for the new generation.
Oh yeah, I have a Pokémon Diamond Friend Code
now. I haven’t played a lot because of college but I’ll be happy
to trade version exclusives or some other Pokémon you might be
interested in with you. If you want my number please Send me an
e-mail with yours to
firstname.lastname@example.org As soon as I can import my GBA Pokémon
to Diamond, I’ll be trading some pretty good Pokémon;
legendaries, starters, Feebas, eevees and stuff like that.
Thanks and see you on Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
Hope you enjoyed.
