Pokemon GO announces Pokemon home event

Pokemon GO is celebrating the connection of its new Pokemon Home with a special event. Features Shiny Meltan and Shiny Slow Pork, research tasks, Mega Pidgeot CP boost and more.

Below are the details of the event.

A special event will soon be held to commemorate the integration of Pokemon GO and Pokemon HOME! If you activate the Mystery Box during the event, you may encounter Shiny Meltan. From timed research that rewards Pidgeot Mega Energy to field research tasks that lead to slow pork and encounters with others, there’s plenty of research to enjoy! In addition, Mega Pidgeot receives a CP boost during the event, so if you don’t already have Mega Evolved, it might be a good time to do this.
