You can get Shiny Meltan in Pokémon GO this month

by Oliver BrandtFebruary 6, 2019

When Pokémon Let’s Go launched in November last year, many Pokémon GO players rushed to find themselves a Meltan — the Mythical Pokémon only available by linking GO with Let’s Go. After the initial rush to catch and evolve the Mythical, many players stopped bothering to open their Mystery Boxes; now, there’s a new reason to start again.

After a little bit of teasing between the Pokémon GO and Pokémon proper twitter accounts, The Pokémon Company and Niantic announced that, starting from right now, players who open Mystery Boxes in Pokémon GO will have a chance to find a shiny Meltan. In addition to this, Mystery Boxes — which are obtained through transferring Pokémon from GO to Let’s Go — will have a cooldown of 3 days, drastically lower than the usual 7.

The event period lasts until March 4th, which means that, if one were to open their Mystery Box at every single opportunity without missing a day, they’d have potentially over 180 opportunities to find a Shiny — not bad at all.
