Where can I find a mystery box in Pokémon Go? I saw the news about the upcoming event involving shiny Meltan and want one, but I don’t have a mystery box.

You can't just find that box in PoGo, you need to trade with a Pokémon Let's Go account to get it. If you don't have it and don't know anyone who does either, you'll be able to get a single Meltan from the Special Study I imagine - I haven't completed it myself, but like other Special Studies (Mew, etc.) it should provide you with one Pokémon to catch and a bunch of Candy. Since Meltan requires 400 Candy to evolve though, it's going to be a pain to evolve it without the Mystery Box.

    When you transfer Pokemon to Let's Go you get the mystery box which can only be open once a week and works like a lucky egg that spawns Meltan around you current location for 30 minutes only for you. The special research provides one Meltan and 5 extra candies. – Styxsksu Feb 8 '19 at 21:47

  2. Scroll to the bottom and click "Pokémon Home"
  3. Follow the on-screen sign-on options to sign into your Nintendo account

Transferring Pokémon

  1. Click on the Pokéball icon and go to settings on the top-right of the screen

After you transfer Pokémon over to Pokémon Home, you will receive a Mystery Box.
