Fans have been looking around the coding in Pokemon Go, and have found evidence of a rather interesting addition to the game. We don't know when or how likely it is that the rarest first-generation Pokemon will appear.

There is a lot of rarity with certain characters, especially if you are playing the game to fill up your Pokedex. The list of available Pokemon caps at 150 with Mewtwo, but as anyone who is familiar with Pokemon knows, that isn't where the original numbers stopped.

Mew is the 151st Pokemon and has always been somewhat difficult to find. Originally, you could only get Mew through a special download on some of the first Game Boy games.

The rarity is likely to continue, but Mew will be back in Pokemon Go.

Reddit user "_istin_" looked over the coding in Niantic's game. There is a data-mine that included a reference to Mew. Mew is referred to as a "Mythic" and is a Psychic Pokemon. It will also have some of the highest stats in the game.

Also noticed was that you won't find a base capture rate of either Mew or Mewtwo, which means that these are perhaps difficult to find in the wild. This is something that also happens with Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, the Legendary Birds that went on to become the mascots for the three teams in Pokémon Go.

More information will likely be available at San Diego Comic-Con, where there will be a Pokemon Go panel hosted by John Hanke, founder of Niantic. The panel will "examine the past, present and future of extending games beyond the screen and re-imagining reality through the lens of Ingress and Pokémon Go." If there is going to be any news about Mew, it will probably come out here.
