Movesets for Singles
What is a good competitive moveset for Mew? These builds have been optimized for Pokemon competing in Gold/Silver Single Battles. The movesets and EVs have been specifically calibrated to deal the most amount of damage to the largest group of potentially common opponents and typing threats for the Gold/Silver generation metagame.
Mew is a phenomenal Psychic-typed Pokemon. It's pretty regular to see Mew show up as a Gold/Silver opponent. There were no known abilities back in the Gold/Silver Pokemon games. Mew is weak to Bug, Dark, and Ghost-typed attacks.
Item: Life Orb
- Double-Edge / Return
- Sludge Bomb
- Shadow Ball
Physical Sweeper Mew (Retro)
Mew is a legendary Physical Sweeper. This moveset is designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Don't forget back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Return is a physical 0-base power Normal-type move (max 102 power at maximum happiness).
♦ Earthquake is a physical 100-base power Ground-type move (power doubles on dig).
♦ Sludge Bomb is a physical 90-base power Poison-type move (30% chance to poison the target).
♦ Shadow Ball is a physical 80-base power Ghost-type move (20% chance to lower the target's special defense by 1 stage).
Item: Life Orb
Special Sweeper Mew (Retro)
Mew is a legendary Special Sweeper. It's meant to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. In the old days prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Thunderbolt is a special 95-base power Electric-type move (10% chance to paralyze the target).
♦ Surf is a special 95-base power Water-type move that deals a decent amount of damage.
♦ Flamethrower is a special 95-base power Fire-type move (10% chance to burn the target).
