Can You Get Mew in Pokemon Legends Arceus? – Answered

Gen I Mythical Pokemon Mew has long been a staple in many Trainers’ Pokedex since its official debut in Pokemon Yellow in 1998 (the Red and Blue truck rumor doesn’t count, sorry). But can you get Mew in Pokemon Legends Arceus? Here’s everything you need to know.

Can You Get Mew in Pokemon Legends Arceus?

To put it as simply as possible: no, you cannot get Mew in Pokemon Legends Arceus. While there are 18 Legendary and Mythical Pokemon to be caught in the Sinnoh origins title, the Psychic-type is, unfortunately, not one of them.

In fact, no Legendary Generation I Pokemon are in the game, at least not for now. The earliest Gen with a rare ‘mon is Gen IV with Uxie and the rest of the Lake Guardians, skipping both II and III as well.

Legends Arceus is slated to get Pokemon HOME integration at some point in 2022 though so moving Mew over may end up being a possibility in the coming months if you have one stored away. That said, there’s no solid date for when that’s being put into place at the time of writing so it’s anyone’s guess.

While you can’t get Mew in the Hisui region, you can obtain all of the following Legendary and Mythical Pokemon instead:

  • Shaymin (Land and Sky Forme)
  • Darkrai
  • Manaphy
  • Phione
  • Dialga (normal and Origin Forme)
  • Palkia (normal and Origin Forme)
  • Uxie
  • Mesprit
  • Azelf
  • Arceus
  • Giratina
  • Heatran
  • Cresselia
  • Tornadus
  • Thundurus
  • Landorus
  • Enamorus
  • Regigigas
