Pokémon go
Gen 1 glitch vertical console
Because this is tagged LGPE, the only other way to get one is through trade or transfer from Pokemon Go
I think it’s only tagged let’s go Eevee because that’s where the Pokeball plus is from

Op which game it is this in general?
I've tried last year the answer was disappointing (you can't)

In LGPE, no, you can only get Mew from the Poke Ball Plus.

In the series in general, you can get Mew from completing research in Pokemon Go or from an NPC in Floaroma Town in BDSP if you have a save file from LGPE on the same Nintendo Switch account, though neither of these can be transferred into LGPE. Both of these have no expiration date.

How do you know these are the only 2 active events?
You cant transfer Mew from Go into LGPE?
The last typical event distribution for Mew was 2017: https://www.serebii.net/events/dex/151.shtml

Only location listed for main series titles is the Poke Ball Plus and Floaroma in BDSP: https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Mew https://www.serebii.net/pokedex-swsh/mew/ https://www.serebii.net/pokedex-sm/151.shtml

AFAIK, Pokemon Go is the only spin-off title with ongoing maintenance/updates that also has mass compatibility with the main series; I'm fairly confident in saying that no other spin-off will let you transfer Mew to the main series.
I think My Pokemon Ranch does that, but they probably don't sell My Pokemon Ranch anymore.
No, my Pokemon ranch is not available anymore unless you already have it downloaded.

@krlw you can transfer Gen 1 Pokemon straight from go to lgpe
Mew in particular is blocked from entry from Go to LGPE.
