You're assuming that the Mew would be female just because it gave birth. Pokemon are bizarre and fantastic creatures, so some of them could breed in a completely alien way.


If Mew could breed in a way that was unique from other creatures, you'd think that it'd be documented more elaborately than with just a line saying "Mew gave birth." >_>


So um, was Johto just really behind on the times for research on Pokemon breeding? Because Elm freaks out about how huge a discovery a Pokemon Egg is, and yet years before we had Fuji write about a Pokemon giving birth. >_>

Yeah, I was just mentioning how I never really caught how silly that was in the original games. Like, it was already silly, but then the journal entry just makes it more ridiculous, looking back on it.

Masculine and feminine voices mean nothing.

We have a winner!

Mewtwo has a birth mother in the games, so that Mew's female...

That does not follow logically at all.

But it isn't unique. There are tons of real creatures that breed and give birth just fine without having distinct male or female sexes. It's really not that remarkable.
