You don't get Mew from every trainer. You did the trick right though. The only two natural trainers who will give you a Mew are the first swimmer in Cerulean Gym, and the Slowpoke Kid on the way to Bill's house. If those two are beaten, you will have to use the Ditto method. This means you must fight a Pokemon with a special of 21. Consult the glitch FAQ on the Yellow FAQ page for details on common wild Pokemon with a special of 21. In the meantime, keep that long range gambler handy.
