All pokemon are genetic descendants of Mews.

It's just a rumor. The Pokedex says that Mew is thought to have the DNA of all Pokemon, so some people think that Mew is one of the first Pokemon. A great-great-great-etc. grandparent, if you will.

It means all of the currently living Pokemon can trace their evolutionary roots back to Mew (who I assume came straight from Arceus). As what Pokemon do when they "evolve" is more like metamorphosis, one can only assume that the world of Pokemon has evolution in its actually sense. That is why there are fossilized species of extinct Pokemon. But apparently those ALL branch from Mew somehow or another.

Because Mew along with every living organism is made of multiple strands of DNA, mess with a few or evolve a few and you get mass differences.

Look at Mewtwo for an obvious example. Taller, "malformed.", bulky, etc.


My personal belief is that since Mew is the genetic blueprint for all Pokemon, most of them evolved into the other types over time, therefore making general Mews rare to the point of extinction (See how it is now considered a mirage because of how rare it is?)

Remember extinct pokemon are all just endangered.

Evolution. Not Pokemon evolution, actual evolution. Slight changes with each new generation, billions of years pass and you got something that looks completely different.

Keep in mind what I said (in the case of Mew evolving into them over time like natural evolution) is more speculation based on real science than anything. So take it worth a grain of salt unless the creators step forward and clarify.
