Mythical Pokémon (幻のポケモン Maboroshi no Pokémon) or Event-exclusive Pokémon, less commonly known as Mirage Pokémon, are a special group of Pokémon that are rarely seen by anyone in the world of Pokémon. Some are so rarely seen that people are unsure if they really exist, spurring scientists to do research. No Mythical Pokémon can be found under normal conditions; the only way to obtain these Pokémon is for the player to participate in "Pokémon events" commonly hosted by Nintendo around the world.

Generation IEdit




Mew, also known as the "Ancestor of all Pokémon," is considered the rarest Pokémon of all. Mew is also a kind, powerful, and rather cute cat-like being that in the movie Mewtwo Strikes Back, saves Ash and all the other trainers invited to New Island.

In the games, Mew is only ever mentioned in journals on Cinnabar Island, where it was stated that Mew had given birth to Mewtwo.

It was obtainable in the 20th Anniversary in February through a special code.

Anime and Movie AppearancesEdit


Generation IIEdit




Celebi (セレビィ Serebii) has been referred to as "new Mew" although, Celebi and Mew have no relationship with each other. Although mythical, Celebi is a legendary Pokémon which mainly resides at the Ilex Forest west of Azalea Town. This Pokémon is more an event Pokémon, which means it can only be obtained through events. Celebi was around the time of the release of the Generation II video games called as the most rarest Pokémon due to the fact that it was only available for one event which was in Japan exclusive for Pokémon Crystal. Now known, Celebi acts more as a chain to unlock other events in different video games. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver after obtaining a Celebi through an event, it will let the player travel through time to show the past between Silver and Giovanni which contains the actual hate of Silver against Team Rocket and his tough attitude. In Pokémon Black and White it can let you obtain Zorua if you transfer Celebi from HeartGold and SoulSilver through Pokémon Black and Pokémon White. Furthermore, it is also known to be the mysterious Pokémon hidden in the mysterious GS Ball. Celebi also makes an appearance in Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. A shiny Celebi makes an appearance in Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness as a temporary part of the team during the storyline. A free Celebi was given to players who used Pokémon Bank before September 30, 2014. Another was given during the Pokémon 20th Anniversary giveaways during the month of March over Wi-Fi.

It is known that Arceus is the 5th most powerful Pokémon of them all (competitively) and the first Pokémon that has a variety of types due to the plates it holds. The birth of Arceus was when it hatched from an egg out of a portal and it has prospered from then. Arceus is an event Pokémon by obtaining the Azure Flute. Arceus can be encountered at the Hall of Origin during an event. To encounter Arceus during an event, one must go to Spear Pillar at the top of Mt. Coronet.

Victini, the Victory Pokémon. Victini is considered a symbol of victory to many people, specifically Trainers. In Black 2 and White 2, the Liberty Garden has become a museum of sorts, and many of it's visitors know about Victini and Team Plasma's attempt at misusing it. Victini's escape from them has provided a real paradigm shift to most of the Unova region. It being that a Rich man protected Victini from Team Plasma, who wanted to capture and use the Pokémon. This showed that there are people who protect Pokémon and those who mistreat them.

It was available through several events, the latest of which, ended August 24, 2016, in which it was given away for Pokémon's 20th Anniversary giveaways during the month of August over Wi-Fi. The events for Japan in 2010, Australia, Europe, and North America in 2011 would give you the Liberty Pass which enables travelling to Liberty Garden while all the other will allow you to receive Victini directly through Wi-Fi. Victini was originally designed for Generation IV but was held back. Victini is the only legitimate Pokémon with the Pokédex number of #000 (Unova Pokédex number, not national number).
