Season 10: Heroes Rising is full of surprises in Pokémon Go. In addition to debuts such as those of Mega Meditalis and Knirfish, there is an event that will let you catch up on missed opportunities and that is the Let’s Go Event in Pokémon Go!
The Let’s GO event begins Tuesday, March 21, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. (local time) and ends on Wednesday, March 29, 2023 at 20:00 (local time). Shiny Meltan return to the game for a short time and you can get hold of them with luck. In addition, the focus is on the change Pokémon Ditto and the three monkey Pokémon Vegimak, Grillmak and Sodamak, for which you as a trainer would normally have to travel around the world to catch them all!
That’s not all though – there’s a free Special Research and Collector’s Challenge, and Team GO Rocket is making a return! Giovanni has once again harnessed the powers of legendary Pokémon and sealed the heart of another golem. The Team GO Rocket takeover takes place in the final days of the Let’s GO event. so that there is no confusion, you can find a guide via this link that is specifically about the Team GO Rocket takeover e turns. Here you can find out below what the Let’s GO event has in store for hard-working trainers.
The little Mysterious Steel-type Pokémon Meltan is bouncing its way into the spotlight, and it’s been a long time since it’s back in its Shiny variant! However, Meltan does not appear in the wild easily. To encounter Meltan, you must transfer a Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME (app) or to the Nintendo Switch games “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!” or “Pokémon Let’s Go, Eevee!” transfer.
Once you have done that, you will receive the Miracle Box item in Pokémon GO. You can then open the miracle box and Meltan will appear in your immediate vicinity for a whole hour. The Wunderbox behaves like the Smoke item, with the difference that you don’t have to move for Meltan and the Pokémon also appears much more frequently than Pokémon that are attracted to smoke. In addition, the miracle box is not consumed when used.
If you open the wonder box during the Let’s Go event, you can even encounter dazzling Meltan. In addition, the probability of an encounter with XXS-Meltan and XXL-Meltan is increased. But the best is yet to come: The cooldown of the Miracle Box is reduced during the Let’s GO event! So you can encounter a lot more Meltan than you normally would!
Important information about Meltan: In order to evolve Meltan into Melmetal, you need 400 Meltan Candies. A Meltan with perfect IV values has 915 CP. If Meltan’s level is increased by a weather boost (snow), the Pokémon will have 991 CP with perfect IV values.
Vegimak, Grillmak and Sodamak appear all over the world!
The Pokémon Vegimak, Grillmak and Sodamak have a special feature: the monkey Pokémon only appear on certain continents, so they are regionals. While Grillmak can be found in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India, Vegimak can only be found in Asia and the Pacific, while Sodamak covers America and Greenland.
Luckily, you don’t have to travel all over the world to further complete your PokéDex, as events always give you a chance to catch regional Pokémon. The Pokémon Vegimak, Grillmak, and Sodamak might even show up in their dazzling variants!
