Pokemon Let’s Go: How to claim Mew from your Pokeball Plus


It's easy. Kinda.

Pokemon Let’s Go is out now, and those who’ve purchased the game’s Pokeball Plus peripheral gain instant access to Mythical Pokemon Mew. That said, you have to redeem Mew to be able to use the Pokémon — this guide details how.

How to redeem Mew

  • First, ensure your Nintendo Switch is connected to the Internet and using a Nintendo Account. Both are required for the transfer.
  • Connect the Pokéball Plus to your Switch and turn on Pokemon Let’s Go.
  • Head into the menu (X button) and select Communicate > Mystery Gifts.
  • Select Get with a Poke Ball Plus.
  • Follow the prompts.

Voila! Easy as, eh? Mew is a one-time claim, so make sure all your devices are charged fully and that you have a strong internet connection before doing the transfer.

Pokemon Let’s Go is available now on Nintendo Switch.
