I have been informed that you can't trade Pokémon from Original Gen 1 and Original Gen 2 to Original Gen 3, so I am wondering how I can obtain a Mew in the Original Gen 3 games, even if it's through glitches. I really want a Mew, so I was wondering how to obtain one from Faraway Island as Gameshark Mew doesn't obey. That is, until I realized the Mew event ended quite a while ago. So, I wish to know how to get it, and if you can even.

Whilst there is no legitimate way to obtain a new Mew in original generation 3 carts any more, you can use either glitches or cheats to warp to Faraway Island and catch it in Emerald. The glitch method makes use of the Pomeg Berry glitch and is rather long and involved; full instructions are in this wiki how article: https://www.wikihow.com/Catch-Mew-in-Pok%C3%A9mon-Emerald

In terms of cheats, you should be able to use either Action Replay or Gameshark to warp to Faraway Island. (You can also use the cheats to spawn a Mew, but as you say, you need to carefully set the "fateful encounter" flag to ensure it will obey you). You can also use cheats to spawn the Old Sea Map item and run the entire event, but it seems that requires a few extra cheat codes to work properly. According to this site the Gameshark codes you require to warp to Faraway Island are:

Another site mentions some other Gameshark codes that might work:

Alright, i found some codes. These are for the gameshark. Not the ar.

I tested these on a rom version of emerald- i'll be damned, they work. You must have the master and anti-dma codes on for it to work. The old sea map also needs the faraway enabler on.
