Shiny Meltan Returns: April 24 – May 5!

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.

Shiny Meltan Event Details

Date & Time April 24, 2019, from 1:00 PM PDT through May 5, 2019 1:00 PM PDT
  • When you open the Mystery Box, you may encounter the Shiny version of the Mythical Pokémon Meltan!
  • Trainers will now be able to open the Mystery Box every three days, even after the event ends.

The key to catching Meltan is the Mystery Box, which can be obtained by sending a Pokémon from Pokémon GO to the Nintendo Switch titles Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! Or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Don’t miss your chance to evolve the Shiny version of Meltan into Shiny Melmetal! Start collecting those Meltan Candies!
