For trainers that missed their chance to catch a Shiny Meltan back in February, Niantic is offering up a second opportunity. The Meltan themed event is returning to the game on Wednesday, April 24th, where fans can add this elusive Shiny Mythical Beast to their collection.
Meltan is Back!
Meltan is unique in Pokemon Go due to the fact that trainers need a specific item known as a Mystery Box in order to summon the monster. Normally, after opening the Mystery Box players have 30 minutes to catch as many Meltan as they can find, then after the allotted time, they need to wait another 7 days before opening the box again. During the Meltan event, Niantic has decreased the box spawn time from 7 days to only 3 days, allowing fans to catch way more monsters than they could before.
Players will have a chance to catch a Shiny Meltan every time they open the Mystery Box. This beast can be distinguished by its darker head and blue tail. Trainers that are able to capture a Shiny Meltan can evolve the monster into a Shiny Melmetal. Unfortunately, players will only have until May 5th to capture a Shiny Meltan, so act quickly if you'd like to capture one.
Niantic is not waiting long after the Meltan event ends to host their next Community Day event, which is scheduled for Sunday, May 19th. This time around Community Day will focus on the Gen 3 starter, Torchic. Players will also be able to earn triple the amount of Stardust during May's Community Day event.

Nintendo celebrated Pokemon Day in a big way this year, with a special Nintendo Direct that revealed generation 8 of the long running monster catching series. Titled Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, these two games are set to release in late 2019. Below you'll find the reveal trailer which gives you a look at the two titles in action.
Pokemon Sword and Shield Reveal Trailer
The new games are set in the fictional region of Galar, which seems to be modeled after Britain. Nintendo also revealed the three new starters that trainers will get to choose between: Grookey the grass monkey, Scorbunny the fire bunny, and Sobble the sad water chameleon. While gameplay was revealed during the Direct, an extensive view was not given, merely little snippets. The biggest takeaway from the clips is that random encounters are coming back to the game.
The Pokemon Company had first revealed that they were working on new Pokemon titles at E3 back in 2017. Other than that, the developer has been tight lipped on details besides the fact that they are core titles and will launch this year.
The company made the wise decision to categorize them as core games since their last two titles Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee were not traditional Pokemon games. Instead, these two games were intended to bridge the gap between Pokemon Go and the core series to help ease new players into Sword and Shield.
We here at Gigamax are incredibly excited for the next generation of Pokemon and can't wait to get our hands on the games. For more information on these titles, be sure to check back with us here at GigamaxGames.com!
