How to Get Mew & Jirachi in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl

Since the beloved franchise debuted in 1996, each Pokémon game has featured a number of Legendary and Mythical Pokémon. Obtaining these Pokémon can be incredibly difficult, but they're often worth the work, as their power matches their elusiveness. While Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl feature their own Legendary Pokémon, there's also a way to get two classics: Mew and Jirachi.

Mew and Jirachi can actually be obtained pretty early in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, giving players the chance to add some powerful allies to their teams before even reaching the second gym.
