Pokémon GO: Catching Shiny Meltan – Follow these important tips

Take advantage of the event bonus: In keeping with the Let’s GO event, Pokémon GO also has a strong bonus all about Meltan: The miracle box is available every two days. Usually you have to wait much longer to get hold of a Wunderbox. Take advantage of this bonus and collect the Miracle Box every other day until March 29th to provoke the maximum encounters with Meltan.

Focus on the miracle box: The miracle box then works just like a smoke. However, only Meltan are attracted here. Since the Pokémon are quite small, they can easily be overlooked. We therefore recommend that you don’t just throw on the miracle box on the side, but only concentrate on the box and the spawning Meltan. Only then can you really catch all Meltan from the wonder box.

Discuss with friends: The Miracle Box for Meltan is only available when you connect your game to Pokémon Home or the Let’s GO Eevee/Pikachu Switch game. If you don’t have both options yourself, you can simply talk to friends. Linking your account to your friend’s Switch game is also sufficient. This is how you get the miracle box.
