Pokémon GO Mew Event: How To Catch The Mythical Pokémon

Niantic added Special Research tasks to Pokémon GO this week, presenting the chance to catch Mew for the first time in the location-based game.

After studying Pokémon and their habitats, Professor Willow has recently found some hints of something mysterious and asks for your help to discover the Mythical Pokémon.

This will challenge you to work your way through eight groups of Special Research tasks in a story-based quest called “A Mythical Discovery,” and, once complete, you will be rewarded with an unmissable opportunity to catch Mew and add the New Species Pokémon to your Pokédex.

These are relatively simple tasks to accomplish that offer their own rewards upon completion, but, what’s important to note, is that they must be done in order – meaning that you shouldn’t try to jump ahead of yourself.
