Trainers, get ready to open those Mystery Boxes again! Niantic has announced that Shiny Meltan will be returning to Pokémon GO starting on April 24th at 1:00 PM PDT and ending on May 5th at 1:00 PM PDT. As a bonus, Trainers will only have to wait three days in between opening Mystery Boxes rather than the standard 7-day period. The 3-day cooldown period will not end with the event; this will be the new standard cooldown period for Mystery Boxes.
