How to get a Mystery Box & Meltan in Pokémon GO

If you're a Pokémon GO player looking to add Meltan to your collection, the Mystery Box is the key to unlocking this elusive Pokémon. The Mystery Box is a special item that allows Meltan to spawn in the game for a limited time, giving you the opportunity to catch this unique Steel-type Pokémon. In this article, we'll guide you through the steps to acquire a Mystery Box and catch Meltan in Pokémon GO.

### How to get a Mystery Box

To obtain a Mystery Box in Pokémon GO, you'll need to connect the game with the Pokémon HOME app. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you get your hands on a Mystery Box:

1. Create a Nintendo Account if you don't already have one. You'll need this account to use Pokémon HOME.

2. Download the Pokémon HOME app from Google Play or the App Store, and sign in with your Nintendo Account.

3. In Pokémon GO, navigate to the Pokéball menu > Settings > Connected Devices and Services > Pokémon HOME, and sign in with your Nintendo Account.

4. Once signed in, you can send a Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME.

5. Select a Pokémon to transfer and confirm the transport. Your Pokémon will then move to Pokémon HOME.

6. Make sure to open Pokémon HOME and receive your Pokémon to complete the transfer process.

Remember, transferring Pokémon to Pokémon HOME incurs transporter energy costs. Avoid sending Legendary Pokémon or shiny Legendary Pokémon, as they require more transporter energy.
