And I repeat this again that Game Freak sold Pokemon on the mystery of Mew in the beginning. This is no small deal. They didn’t just announce it, they played something like a mixed reality game where clues about the existence of Mew were merely hinted at very cryptically. And it wasn’t until much later that Mew was confirmed to exist out in the open. This is like if Herobrine were an actual character rather than a rumor, and Notch was hiding it from fans, just giving out hints for a couple of years until revealing it. And it sold copies. To think that Game Freak wouldn’t want to throw in even more Easter Eggs like Mew seems unusual considering their marketing strategy at the time. There are a lot of strange coincidences if it was an accident.
