There are many Pokémon that you can capture in Pokémon Go, but some of them are more difficult to capture than others. You may have to wait for an event or season to occur in your area. If you want to catch Meloetta, she makes her debut during Pokémon Go Fest 2021. All you have to do is complete the special Melody Pokémon survey available at the event, which requires a ticket to participate. When you complete the quest and capture this mythical Pokémon, can you get a shiny Meloetta?
Because Niantic probably proceeds with all new Pokémon, we imagine that Meloetta will not receive its glossy version during Pokémon Go Fest 2021. Most mythical Pokémon will not receive a glossy version outside of the exclusive, dedicated event to receive a glossy version. Therefore, when Pokémon Go Fest 2021 is Meloetta’s debut, it will not receive a glossy version. Once available to all other players who did not participate in the two-day tournament, it will not receive a glossy version at that time. However, we can probably expect Meloetta to receive a glossy version sometime in the future.
Some players have said that a tweet Niantic posted about the initial Meloetta reveals that it could be shiny. The tweet in question was published below. If you look at the top, there are three little shiny stars at the top of Meloetta’s silhouette, and some people have taken this as an indication that a shiny version of Meloetta might show up at Pokémon Go Fest 2021 for some coaches who get a rare chance to catch it. However, we believe that this theory is grasped by the straws and you should not expect a chance to capture the shiny Meloetta during the Pokémon Go Fest 2021 event.
