Pokémon GO: How To Get A Mystery Box?
  1. Look for trainers with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
  2. Paired Pokémon GO to your Nintendo Switch.
  3. Pokemon Go Trainer (You) can send one gen 1 Pokémon of your choice from Pokémon Go to their Nintendo Switch.
  4. Pokémon let’s go on the Nintendo switch player in return will give you a Mystery Box.

What is the benefit?
This is just like transferring Pokémon to Professor Willow, giving trainers the chance to earn Candy for each Pokémon they send.

This Pokémon will appear in the GO Park complex in Let’s Go and come with a special bonus.

Trainers who send Pokémon to the Switch will earn additional XP and unlock the special Mystery Box item.

As confirmed by Niantic, the Mystery Box allows you to catch the Mythical Pokémon Meltan, which does not appear in the wild without it.

The Mystery Box will act as a lure if activated but it will only attract Meltans to your area for 30 minutes. Activating the Mystery Box can bag you up to 20 Meltans per box. Don't forget to feed Pinap Berries to earn more candies to evolve a Melmetal, which requires a total of 400 Meltan Candies to be upgraded.
