I was working at an elementary school today. Two first grade boys started talking about Pokemon and got on the subject of Mewtwo. They started listing the different kinds of Mew, including "Blue Mew" and "Metal Mew". I explained to them that one was just Mew's shiny color and the other was a rumor started because of pictures from the first movie of Mewtwo in his armor.
This is the second time I've had to debunk a version of the Mewthree rumor. Two years ago a boy told me his favorite Pokemon was Mewfour. Ow. None of these kids were even born when "Mewtwo Strikes Back" came out. How did they even hear about this? Next thing you know they'll be asking how to catch the PokeGods.
So, anyone have a similar experience?
