Catch mew in pokemon red

There are several methods to obtain Mew in Pokemon Red. Mew is coded into the game, but is unobtainable by conventional means. Apparently, there were official Pokemon events in the 90’s where they gave away mew to fans that brought their gameboys, but that opportunity has long passed. There is a very complicated method that involves glitching the game and encountering “gambler” and “youngster” trainers in a very specific way, but that can be difficult to execute.

The easiest way is to enter the Gameshark code 0115D8CF and when you fight and capture a wild pokemon, withdraw it from your PC, and it will be Mew! I believe this code also works with Pokemon Blue.

I’ve been playing the Retron 3 for about a week now, so I think I’m ready to give my thoughts on the system.
The Retron 3 is a console that allows you to play games for the NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis. The main benefit is that it’s cheaper than buying all three systems and you don’t end up with a tangled mess of AV Cables and Power cords. It comes in two colors: red and black (I got the black one). I got mine new on amazon for around fifty bucks, and although I own all three original systems, I only have the Retron hooked up right now because it saves so much clutter around my tv.
My only real complaint about the system is that the two wireless controllers that are included feel somewhat light and cheap, however, the Retron has ports so you can plug in original controllers for the NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis.
I’ve played a number of games for each of the three systems and I haven’t had any game compatibility issues yet. The Video and Sound is pretty much identical to what you would get from the original systems.
I think the Retron 3 is a good investment if you have a stash of older games, or you’d like to start up a collection. If you live in a small apartment or dorm, as I do, it saves a lot of space and only takes up one spot on your AC outlet. All in all, I’m very pleased with my purchase and hopefully I can pry myself away from it long enough to get some studying done 😛
