How to Get Shiny Mew in Pokemon Go?

We can all agree that Mew is a great addition to our Pokedex, but what about its Shiny version, you may ask?

To get Shiny Mew, you have to finish a series of tasks that are not that easy to get the tick from. First and foremost, only the ones that competed in the Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto have the opportunity of encountering Shiny Mew through the Masterwork Research.

The thing is, to even get to the Masterwork Research, you would need to complete the Special Research that is unique to the adventure known as Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto.

Once you overcome that obstacle, the main and hard part comes, which is completing the Masterwork Research.

Now, some of the requirements will give you headache, but hey, look at the bright side, you’ll end up getting a shiny Mew.

Shiny Mew Masterwork Research Requirements

  • Get a Platinum Kanto Medal
  • Reach Trainer Level 40
  • Catch 30 Pokemon of each Type (a total of 540 Pokemon)
  • Spin 151 Pokestops
  • Walk 151km
  • And much more (for the complete list of tasks and rewards please see below)

The good thing is that Masterwork Research does not have a time limit, so you can have as much time as you need to finish these steps.
