Mew is probably one of the more famed and recognisable Pokemon. You'll probably remember Mew from back in the very first Pokemon movie, if you're old enough to have watched it back in the day. In our Pokemon Let's Go Mew guide, we'll be walking you through how to get Mew in Pokemon Let's Go, so you can add the elusive creature to your collection.
How to Get Mew in Pokemon Let’s Go
There’s no doubting Mew as one of the more well-known Pokemon around the world. He’s a cat (apparently), and he’s definitely one of the more powerful cat-like creatures in all of Pokemon, possessing powerful dark-type abilities.
As of right now, there’s only one confirmed method for obtaining Mew in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. Mew can only be obtained by purchasing the using the Poke Ball Plus accessory with the game, which is sold separately from Pokemon Let’s Go, at right around $49.99 (click here to purchase one).
Once you’ve connected your Poke Ball Plus to your Nintendo Switch, pause Pokemon Let’s Go by pressing X. Now scroll over to the ‘Communications’ option, and click on it. Next, click on the ‘Mystery Gift’ option, and you’ll have the opportunity to download Mew into your save game of Pokemon Let’s Go.
Note that there are some catches to this. Namely, each Poke Ball Plus contains one Mew, and one Mew only, meaning that once the creature has been downloaded once, that’s it, they’re used up. Also, Nintendo previously announced that at a certain point, Mew will no longer be available in all Poke Ball Plus accessories. When this cut off point is, we have no idea.
