How I belive GameFreak decided o0n the original Mew Design:

Head of Sprite Design or Whatever: Ok guys, we have to make a genetic Pokemon. How should we design it?
Employee: ..We should make it look like a human embryo.
Head of Sprite Design or Whatever: F**KING, GENIUS, BOB.

And then they realized what a horrible monster they had created and fixed it.
The end.

I must say I prefer this design, it looks more like an embryo than the definitive design, and you rendered that very well with this translucence effect. Have you tried applying it to other hues? How well does it work?

As you probably know, I don't play/do much Pokemon-related things as I used to. So, I honestly don't have much of an opinion on anything that's new that's Pokemon. I don't even have a DS! :P

Oh man, this looks like derpy version of Mew. Hey! I know, why not call this DerpMew and turn it into a meme.

I love DerpMew! Just kidding. I hate it. We called it BrainyMew in the past, but DerpMew sounds like a good name too.

Lol, I remember squinting at the old gameboy sprites when I was 7 and thinking "what the fuck is that thing?" Some of them are remarkably off-model.

Mew looks like mutated. Ironically, Mewtwo came from it...so what would Mewtwo look like? :O

Was that the original sprite in Red/Blue or a discarded one?

it was the original sprite from Pokemon Green/Red which only appeared in Japan in 1996. Later for 1998 they released the Japanese Special Edition "Blue" and turned it into the two American versions of Red/Blue that we know!

I see. Speaking of, I'm curious why Blue was the "special edition", and why America never had Green, but got a special edition of "yellow". #VenasaurNeglect #PikachuEnchantment

well, for that you can read this! [link](Japanese) and the Yellow version came out in Japan after the anime got popular.

I think it's a combination of it being non-pixelated and having the correct color scheme.
