So I started reading Pokémon Adventures (also known as Pokémon Special) recently. You know if this series is supposed to be the darkest and most mature interpretation of Pokémon ever made, then why does it assume I'm stupid? (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v640/AnimeDude360/pokemonplothole.jpg)
I have no idea. I gather in-game that people KNOW about it because Fuji's diary is just laying out there for anyone to see, but either way, Mew should have at least been recorded before it.Also, MPJ is a very awesome manga. It's got wonderful characters, and actually builds on the pokemon themselves. And the take on the world is singular, because there's no journey or battling--it's everyday life with these little monsters, the kind we see hinted at in all the towns in the game and elsewhere, but never expanded on save for this comic (well, and a couple of chapters of PokeWake but no one's even heard of that one).
The building where you find Fuji's diary has been abandoned for quite some time. It's over-run with wild pokemon and looters. So it's possible no one knew it was there.
