We have a very important PSA to make concerning the Mew that comes inside Poke Ball Plus and Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee.
It has come to our attention that some users transferred Mew from Poke Ball Plus into their Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee save file, but they later deleted the save file as they weren’t happy with Mew’s stats.
After creating a new save file, to their horror, they could no longer receive Mew from their Poke Ball Plus. This should be no surprise as Nintendo says the following:
- Mew can only be transferred ONE TIME, into one copy of Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!.
- Once it has been transferred to a game, it will no longer be available on the Poké Ball Plus to transfer again to a different game.
- Deleting a save file with Mew in it will also delete Mew. If you have deleted a game with Mew, you will not be able to get Mew a second time on a new game from the same Poké Ball Plus.
So the moment you transfer Mew into your game, that’s the first and last time you get Mew, unless you buy another Poke Ball Plus.
