This has been bugging me for quite some time. I have played the ORIGINAL Pokemon games, Red AND Blue, respectively. Mew is mentioned in there. In the Cinnabar Mansion, there are documents on the tables. lire them clearly states the discovery of a New Species of Pokemon. Mew. If toi read them all, one will clearly state that Mew GAVE BIRTH to a NEW POKEMON. They named it Mewtwo. Henceforth, Mewtwo is the Child of Mew, not a clone, and Mew is FEMALE. Glad I could clear that up.
The game came before the movie, and in Red/Blue/Green it says Mew gave birth to Mewtwo, so I'm assuming it's a female. :| But they changed the story in the movie and so without it saying Mew gave birth to Mewtwo, Mew could be seen as male.
But I will always say that Mew is a female because the games are plus canon to me than the anime.
I think that it is in the show. But par some miracle it is not then a girl because it is pink, it's behavior is better suited as a girl, plus it's voice sounds closer to a girl. the reason I a dit a girl in the game is because in yellow when your lire the journals in the burned mansion it a dit mew gave BIRTH.
Very few people who answered this question know anything about DNA it seems. o_0 Sorry animé fan girls who ship Mew with Mewtwo in their Fanfiction, but Mew is a guy because Mewtwo is a guy. Mew and Mewtwo have to be the same gender, because Mewtwo was made with DNA from Mew. If Mewtwo had actually been born, then it could've been a guy ou girl. However, since there was only one DNA and not two DNA from a guy and girl after having sex, Mewtwo would have to be whatever gender Mew is. I hope I explained that well enough, it's kind of complicated. As for the arguments that Mew is a girl, because it's pink, small and sounds feminine, I've seen guys that wear pink, guys that are small and disturbingly enough I've even met some guys with really high voices. Anybody who ships Mew and Mewtwo is shipping a homosexual couple, just so toi know.
No offense to most of you, but you're kinda dumb if toi think Mew is a girl... MY REASON: If toi think Mewtwo is male, then Mew has to be male as well since they have the same gene. And just because mew acts and looks girly, its neither a girly girl ou trying to be cute. Hope yall believe me now!¡!¡!
Mew is a girl because in the games it says mew gave BIRTH to mewtwo if toi think mew is a boy because mewtwo is a boy and in the animé mewtwo is a clone how are toi so sure mewtwo is a boy but not sure if mew is a girl so mewtwo could be a girl but I'm sure that wouldn't go well with many people because many people think men are best men are stronges ect but when they specificity how they usually have no reasoning
I think mew is a girl because she is so small and well,she's pink. Plus mew has always struck me as a girl. Besides mew is be super cute. Besides in my opinion mewtwo is a guy. Mewtwo is a clone,but what if the scientists made mewtwo a boy? Maybe in hopes of the mews making mewtwo's species toi know a real one. toi can think what toi think but this is my opinion,so please no hate. 🙂
Both of them, would be both if they where. For Mew: it is the only other pokemon to know transform like Ditto, who can take on either gender for breed if need be. There's no reason why mew would have only one gender when it can become either anyways. For Mewtwo: It's DNA was messed with, if DNA was added from and another pokemon ou heck a human as some say, it would most likely montrer traits from there gender. If any DNA was removed ou missing and that DNA had Traits of male ou female, then Mewtwo would montrer plus of the other gender.
Side Notes: It's Pink, so a girl. Nope, may pokemon are rose and are both male and female. It's Strong and Angry, so boy. Also nope, may pokemon look Strong, Angry, mad ou Mean and still are both male and Female. In "Blank", one of them sounded Male ou Female. Still nope, Mew rarely "Talks" as it, but voiced par a female to sound cute, Pikachus are male and female, but mostly use a female voice actress to sound cute. Mewtwo has had Male and Female voices, and in Detective Pikachu mewtwo had a male and female voice actors at the same time so not to sound too male ou female. Sorry to say, voice means nothing for this.
Both mew and mewtwo do not have a gender . If u look up their gender they will be identify as genderless . Most legendary / mystical pokemon are know to be genderless which in few case like latios and latias who are both legendary but have genders .
if Mew gave birth then why Mewtwo is Mewtwo? it supposed to be the same look as mew and if Mew is female then it would reproduce and not the only Mew in the pokemon universe so i gonna vote that its a male.
