To get Mew in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, you need to save data from either Let’s Go Pikachu or Let’s Go Eevee on your Nintendo Switch console. If you’ve played one of them before, you’ll already have it unless you deleted it, otherwise you’ll need to purchase the game and play it first before you can qualify.
After defeating the first Gym Leader, Roark, in Oreburgh City, head back to Jubilife City and then north onto Route 204 and through Ravaged Path to get to Floaroma Town. As you enter from the south side, look directly to the left, and you’ll see an elderly couple standing in a field of flowers.
Speak to the old lady on the right and if you have Let’s Go save data, she will gift you Mew! Unfortunately, the Gen I Mythical is Shiny locked so there’s no chance of receiving the Shiny version from her.
