Select Mystery Gift on the main menu. The Shiny Tapu Koko also comes equipped with an Electric Seed and is level 60 from the start so players won't have to spend time grinding levels for it. Luckily, Tapu Koko has the ability Electric Surge, which creates an Electric Terrain upon entering the battlefield. The Pokemon is "Shiny Locked", meaning that Pokemon Sun and Moon will never generate the Pokemon in its shiny form. Indeed, along with Niantic's continued dedication to improving the Pokemon GO experience with events and celebrations galore, the hype train for one of gaming's most revered franchises just keeps on steaming ahead.

The shiny version of Tapu Koko takes the Legendary's yellow shell-like arms and turns them black, making the shiny version of Tapu Koko pretty distinct!

You have until August 14 to acquire the Pokemon, so don't forget.
