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.
