    AWESOME. I know this may be a bit old for some, but I figured a lot of people wouldn't have heard of this. Rest Assured, no cheat device is used. This was actually used in an official speed run for the Speed Demos Archive, and all runs must very specifically not use any cheat devices.

    Not only is this old, but there were several other glitches to get Mew before it.

    I didn't know about this. I thought the only way to catch Mew was to use a cheat device or obtain it from Nintendo.

    Bought myself a Game Genie adapter when I used to play Red and got Mew that way and I got Celebi the same way as well ^^

    Now if only I knew about these Mew glitches what, 10 years ago?

    This beats the Missingno. glitch by a long shot.

    I do the fly trick to go to Lavender Town, beat up a Slowpoke and catch a level 7 Mew(as far as I can remember, am not sure if it was Slowpoke, the last time I did it was 2003 I think, lol).

    And had 250 in the Silver edition, and save just dissapeard, it still saves fine but dont know what happend..

    You do know you can recharge the battery by turning the game on and leaving it, right?

    So how comes my Pokemon Red and Yellow doesnt save anymore?

    When I start a new game, and save, and turn it off, nothing appears the next time I turn it on...

    My japanese version of Blue is still working fine, but I cant trade any pokemon from other version to it...

    same problem as minox, the battery has completely caked itself. i remember this, i always caught mew at lvl1 i battled misty and then all of a sudden i have a lvl 100 one =). that was cool. i did it the cerulean/bug catcher/nugget bridge way btw.

    The batteries are designed to be recharged when the unit is on. Of course, sometimes batteries just flat out die, but I think it's just a simple lithium ion battery (which can be bought in most stores). The hardest part however is actually getting the cart open...

    I've got no interest atm to change the battery of my Pkmn Red because that wouldn't get my old save back.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Wow, I had no idea this was possible like a lot of other people said. There were so many made up glitches at the time from penises who thought making up cheats would be funny. I just assumed there never really was one, as one was never widely confirmed.
    So yeah, I'm one of those who bought a cheat cartridge just for Red and Silver. Red is the first proper video game I owned, I was so crazy about Pokemon lol. Apart from educational PC titles to be run off DOS, which sucked badly.

    VERY cool. I must have played through red 4 times. Had no idea you could do that, the only glitch I remember was Missingno.

    I bought the cheat device to get my mew, lol. But I did use the glitch to get Missingno. I remember boasting to my friends that I had 152.

    I gotta say, I wasn't aware it was that old.
