1. The seller said that they recently went to Japan this year, and brought back tons of Pokemon merch to sell. I'm assuming they could have picked Mew up secondhand, but a lot of their other stuff looks recent, so I'm guessing they went to the Pokemon Center?
2. I compared the Doll to two others which I am sure are legitimate, as they are very high priced and look legitimate. All three look a little different from each other (all are still from 2005) but the two which I am sure are real have bigger eyes than the cheaper one.
3. The cheap one's Tush Tag has the (c) 2005 Pokémon/Nintendo part printed, but it is printed as "(c)2005 Pokémon/Nintendo/
Creatures/GAME FREAK.", while the other, expensive one has it printed as "(c)2005 Pokémon/Nintendo.
TM and (R) Nintendo."

And here's the Legit (High priced) ones for comparison:
And the other:
