Pokemon Go players will be able to hunt down special shiny versions of legendary pokemon Meltan for a limited time. Niantic made the announcement on the Pokemon Go blog this week that, now through March 4th, Myster Box items may come with a special encounter featuring the shiny version of the pokemon.

The event is running for a month which gives players enough time to get a bunch of Mystery Boxes.

A Mythical Pokémon, the mysterious and rare Meltan only appears when a Mystery Box is opened. If you’re lucky, you may encounter Shiny Meltan when you open the Mystery Box from February 5 at 1 p.m. PST until March 4 at 11:59 p.m. PST. During this special event, the time that you have to wait before you can open the Mystery Box again will be reduced to three days. Be careful, Trainer! If you open the Mystery Box before this event starts, you will have to wait the usual time period before you can open it again.
