These new Pokémon appear: Three new Pokémon will appear in the game for the Pokémon GO crossover event. One of them is a new costumed Pikachu. This wears a trading card game cap for the event and is very easy to recognize. In addition to the costumed Pikachu, fans will also have the chance to catch Rice Louse and his development Textass for the first time. In order to evolve Ricefly into Textass, Trainers will need a whopping 400 Candy.

Meltan catchable again: In addition to Pikachu with the trading card game cap and the two new Pokémon, Meltan can finally be caught in the game again. With a bit of luck, trainers will even catch Shiny Meltan. For this, however, players must get their hands on a Wunderbox. You can do this by transferring Pokémon from Pokémon GO or Pokémon: Let’s GO, Pikachu/Eevee! to Pokémon HOME.

The Wonder Box must then be used during the Pokémon GO crossover event to capture Meltan. The San Francisco developer is also reducing the cooldown of the Wonder Box for the event, so you can catch even more Meltan.
