Pokémon GO

As part of the Lunar New Year celebrations, players can encounter a Shiny version of Meltan, though only for a limited time. Between February 5th (1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM GMT / 10PM CET) / February 6th (6AM JST) and March 4th (11.59PM PT) / March 5 (2.59AM ET / 7.59AM GMT / 3.59PM JST), when getting a Meltan from a Mytstery Box, there’s a chance it will be shiny.

What’s more, the waiting time before you can open the Mystery Box again will be reduced to 3 days. However, you need to be careful: this only works for boxes opened DURING the event: if you open it before it starts, then you will have to wait the usual week.
