I've got a Pokemon related mystery I'm trying to figure out.
In December 1999, Toy R Us and Nintendo Canada did a contest called "Gotta Catch Mew". The contest gave you a chance to get one of rare Mew characters for your Pokemon Red, Blue, or Yellow cart. Basically what you had to do was go to the electronics dept. of Toys R Us and get a card with Mew sticker on it. If it said "Caught Me" underneath the Mew sticker, that means you won!
I was lucky enough to win a Mew . However, 3 months later something very strange happened. One night when I tried to continue my Pokemon Yellow game, I got a message that said that my saved game data had been destroyed! Not corrupted, not deleted, DESTROYED! If course, this means that all my high-level Pokemon, including Mew, were gone.
To this day I have no idea why this happened. I never used any kind of cheat device with my game, and I've never been able to duplicate this error message. My theory is that the problem was caused by the Mew data itself. Can anyone here think of a plausible explanation as to why my game crashed?
(Oh yeah, In case your wondering what inspired my thread title, it's from the english title for the 8th Pokemon movie "Lucario and the Mystery of Mew".)
