Previous Story 10/24/2018: Trainers, new Special Research quests will be coming to Pokemon Go and this time players will have a chance to catch the new Mythical Pokemon Meltan.

The two Professors, Professor Oak and Professor Willow, found a new Mystery Box. When Professor Oak opened the box in his laboratory, he found a rusty lump of metal inside. This rusty lump is composed of the same elements as Meltan.

He then sent the Mystery Box to Professor Willow, and here is what happened:

In order to catch Meltan, it is essential to have a Mystery Box, which can be received by sending Pokemon from Pokemon Go to Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! When the Box is received, players will have a limited time of 30 minutes to catch Meltan in Pokemon Go before the Box closes.

The only way to open the Mystery Box again is to wait a set amount of time before transferring more Pokemon over.

New Special Research quests will be coming to Pokemon Go that will let you embark on a search for the Mythical Pokemon Meltan. Look forward to this new Special Research this winter, when you can participate in various investigations with Professor Willow and catch Meltan!
