To celebrate the integration of Pokémon HOME and Pokémon GO, Niantic has revealed a special event! That’s right, we’re finally going to be getting Shiny Meltan again! If you activate a Mystery Box during the special event, you might encounter Shiny Meltan! Meltan’s shiny has been hiding for over a year now, so it’s exciting to see the return. What’s more, Slowpoke’s shiny will finally be released in GO!
Date and Time
This event will run from Tuesday, November 17 at 8:00 a.m. to Monday, November 23 at 10:00 p.m. local time! We’ve got just under a week to get shiny Meltan!
There are a lot of things to expect from the Pokémon HOME event. Here are some highlights:
- Shiny Meltan will be available from the Mystery Box. To get the Mystery Box, simply transfer a Pokémon to either Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee or Pokémon HOME. The box lasts for an hour. Shiny Meltan will be unavailable again after the event ends.
- Shiny Slowpoke will be released and appear in the wild.
- Timed Research will reward Mega Pidgeot Energy as well as encounters with Slowpoke and Gible.
- Alolan Vulpix, Slowpoke, Magenemite, Shinx, Timburr, and Klink will be in raids.
- New avatar items will be available including Melmatal Jacket, Melmetal Vest, Melmetal Shoes, and Grand Oak’s Glasses.
And don’t forget that Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion will be returning to raids during this event as well as the following week (raid guides coming soon).
Anyway, enjoy the event and get your shiny Meltan!
