She says in the video, “In the mall they were lining up and trading back and forth and all that stuff and fighting all the kids in the line. I used to run over everyone in line. You know, I was really competitive.

But then she realized that playing competitively wouldn’t help her, because having an authentic Mew takes some serious skill. She remembered holding back, saying: “It was the only way not to compete because I wanted an authentic Mew, because Mew wasn’t in the original fifty-one.”
