Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee are finally available, which means players get to dive into the Kanto region in the first Pokemon game on the Nintendo Switch. Players who pick up the Poke Ball Plus accessoryor get the game bundle that comes with the Poke Ball Plus, will find a special surprise hidden in their Poke Ball: the mythical Pokemon Mew. Here is how players can transfer Mew over to their copy of the game.
The first thing players will want to do once they boot up their copy of Pokemon Let’s Go is to progress through the beginning parts of the game. Players will be unable to access Mew until they complete the initial battle with their rival. After their first battle, players will notice that a new icon has popped up in their main menu. After clicking on the Communicate option, players will want to navigate over to Mystery Gifts, then select the “Get with a Poke Ball Plus” option. After connecting to the internet, players will begin downloading the Mew from the Poke Ball.
Once players finish accepting the Mystery Gift, Mew will now be in the player’s party or box. This Mew is at Level 1, so players will need to spend some time leveling Mew up before it can be really useful in-game. Fortunately, all trainer Pokemon gain experience when catching wild Pokemon, so it shouldn’t take too long for Mew to catch up with the rest of the team. There are plenty of wild Pokemon walking around in the wild grass, so players can stock up on Poke Balls and rack up experience very quickly.
Pokemon Let’s Go is one of the biggest and most anticipated titles launching right before the holiday season, and it serves as a good entry point for new players who may have gotten their start in the Pokemon franchise with Pokemon Go. Players will get to embark on a journey with their new partner Pokemon and both new and veteran fans of the series will find plenty to love while exploring the remastered map of Kanto. Hopefully, this new Pokemon installment will be enough to hold fans over until the new Pokemon title is released for Switch sometime next year.
Pokemon Let’s Go is available now exclusively for Nintendo Switch
