Niantic have announced a special event marking Pokemon GO's integration with Pokemon Home, where players can catch a Shiny Slowpoke, or get a Shiny Meltan from the Mystery Box.
So, Pokemon Home kicks off on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, at 8:00am to Monday, November 23, 2020, at 10:00pm local time.
During this time, the Pokemon appearing more often in the wild will be Alolan Sandshrew, Zubat, Alolan Diglett, Slowpoke, Magnemite, Ditto, Porygon, Hoothoot, Remoraid, Whismur, Lileep, Anorith, Cottonee, and Foongus.
Nidoran ♀, Nidoran ♂, Slowpoke, Omanyte, Kabuto, Lileep, and Anorith will be hatching from 5km Eggs, while Alolan Vulpix, Slowpoke, Magnemite, Shinx, Timburr, Klink, and others will be appearing in raids.
Those Pokemon GO Trainers who strike lucky will find a Shiny Slowpoke, but there's more to do during Pokemon Home than just waiting for your turn of luck.
Event-exclusive Timed Research rewards Trainers with Pdgeot Mega Energy, Poke Balls, Berries, encounters with Slowpoke and Gibble, and more. Event-exclusive Field Research tasks grant encounters with Pokemon like Slowpoke and others.
Note that Mega Pidgeot gets a CP boost during the event period.
"Be sure to activate the Mystery Box during this time—you might encounter a Shiny Meltan! It seems these Shiny Meltan will go back into hiding after this event is over. We'll sure be sure to let you know if they're spotted again in the future", Niantic wrote.
As of Monday, November 16, 2020, at 1:00pm to Tuesday, November 24, 2020, at 1:00pm PST (GMT -8), Cobalion, Terrakion and Virizion will be available to challenge in five-star raids.
As usual, the event will be accompanied with special avatar items, like Melmetal Jacket, Melmetal Vest, Melmetal Shoes, and Grand Oak's Glasses.
