Since the launch of Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee, Trainers have been transferring Pokémon from Pokémon GO into these games. A Shiny version of the Mythical Pokémon Meltan will soon be reappearing in Pokémon GO for a limited time. The Shiny version has a slightly darker face than normal, as well as a blue tail instead of the usual red. Meltan is a rare Pokémon that appears only when a Mystery Box is used in Pokémon GO. In turn, a Mystery Box can be obtained only by linking Pokémon GO with Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu or Let’s Go Eevee.
Use your Mystery Box anytime between April 24 at 20:00 UTC to May 5 20:00 UTC for another chance to catch Shiny Meltan. The time you have to wait before you can open the Mystery Box again will be reduced. Once you catch Shiny Meltan in Pokémon GO, you can bring it over to Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu or Let’s Go Eevee. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to bring Shiny Meltan into your GO Park or evolve it into Shiny Melmetal. In Pokémon GO, Niantic recently released new Meltan avatar items, which are now available for purchase in the Style Shop.
