A leak has revealed that it is possible to get the legendary Pokémon Jirachi and Mew in the upcoming titles Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Leaks on Reddit via a file Pokéleaks subreddit It turns out that you can get Jirachi and Mew early in the games. For this you need savegames from Pokémon Let’s Go (for Mew) and Sword/Shield (for Jirachi). When these saved games are on your Switch, you automatically claim mythical creatures.
What should I do to get Mew and Jirachi?
First, make sure you have these saved games on your device. You can also borrow someone’s copy, play the game until they are saved, and then proceed to Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, when they are in the shop.
From that point on, it’s actually pretty simple. In the game, you then go to Floaroma Town, a city that you can go to after the first gym. Here in the southwest of the village there is a flower field where a man and a woman stand. Talking to the ‘lady’ will give you myo, while the ‘gentlemen’ will give you jirashi. In principle, you can get them in one saved game and from that moment on you immediately have a Pokemon that will fit into almost every team.
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl will be available for Nintendo Switch on November 19.
