If you want to catch Meltan in Pokemon GO, then you’ll need to know how to send Pokemon to Pokemon Home or Pokemon Let’s GO: Pikachu / Eevee.

This is because transferring Pokemon between these games gives you the Mystery Box item, which, when used, can cause Meltan to spawn in the wild for 30 minutes!

Plus, you’ll need to transfer a Pokemon whenever you want to use the Mystery Box again. And it is certainly worth it since the shiny version of Meltan is available during the Pokemon GO Let’s GO event!
