How to capture the legendary Mew in Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO brings, among its secrets, the presence of the legendary Mew, who is perhaps the rarest Pokémon of the first generation. What few people know is that Mew can be caught in the game of Android and iOS, but it takes a series of tasks offered by Professor Willow to be able to find him. The "A mythical discovery" campaign is divided into eight different levels and is not as difficult but rather time-consuming. Learn how to perform it and capture the little monster:

Campaign "A mythical discovery"

The campaign in Pokémon GO asks the player to complete several very specific tasks, capable of releasing Mew in its end. There are eight stages in total, but unlike Field Searches, the tasks in this campaign are fixed - they do not change according to PokéStops, or Poké Stops, nor according to the player.
