  • In my dex, Mew is completely registered. It must be a bug on your end. Whatever you do, do not delete your game as you will lose the Mew for good. (Only one Mew per Poké Ball Plus.)

  • So, I got my mew from the pokeball plus, everything fine…
    even had him in my party for a while
    then while I was browsing my pokedex, I noticed mew´s entry is missing, its only listed as “seen”, its sprite shaded and info with question marks..
    is this a bug?
    is some one else having this issue as well?
