Anyone who’s played the original Pokemon Snap was already probably looking forward to a Mew encounter. Well, Mew is also available in New Pokemon Snap, and it’s a little tricky to find the location. We got you covered, though, with our full walkthrough of how to unlock it. Here’s where to find Mew in New Pokemon Snap.

Where to find Mew in New Pokemon Snap

  • Complete the full story in New Pokemon Snap.
  • Enter the Founja Jungle (Night) area on Research Level 2.
  • As soon as the level starts, turn around and play a melody.
  • A pink orb will come flying toward you.
  • Hit the pink sphere with a Fluffruit.
  • Mew will appear for a brief second, allowing you to snap a picture. 

Mew is found in the Founja Jungle (Night) area on Research Level 2. To begin, you’ll need to make sure you have completed the full story in the game, which involves finding all of the Illumina Pokemon. Next, enter into the Founja Jungle to the nighttime level. You’ll need to make sure you’re on Research Level 2 to get Mew to show up here.

As soon as the game starts, you can press down on your D-pad to turn around immediately. Play a Melody with the R button, and you should see a pink orb come flying in from behind the little Morelulls. You may want to wait a minute before hitting the orb with a Fluffruit because you’ll want to make sure it’s close enough to you so you can get a decent shot.

Mew Encounter New Pokemon Snap

There’s a small log a few feet into the level, and the orb flies perfectly through there. It’s an excellent opportunity to take a close-up snapshot of Mew and get an easy high-score photo. One thing to note, if you take a photo of the ball itself, it still counts as a one-star Mew. 

There’s a LenTalk Request called Myth of the Jungle, which involves getting a photo of Mew eating a fluffruit. In short, you’ll have to hit Mew three times to get it to appear at the ruins. Mew also appears in the daytime level after you find it during the night.
