Pokémon Sun & Moon Giveaway Lets Players Nab A Shiny Tapu Koko

Tapu koko Pokemon

Players can pick up their very own shiny Tapu Koko by connecting to the internet and selecting the game's Mystery Gift option.

To obtain this shiny, legendary Pokémon, you will need to select "Mystery Gift" from your Sun or Moon main menu instead of "Continue".

Unlike a normal Tapu Koko, Shiny Tapu Koko has a black outer shell.

The Pokemon Company is releasing Shiny Tapu Koko to celebrate the release of a new "Shiny Tapu Koko GX" box for the Pokemon Trading Card Game.

The Electric Seed which Shiny Tapu Koko carries also boosts its defense in electric terrain which this free Pokemon creates whenever it enters battle.

Tapu Koko will know Nature's Madness, Discharge, Agility, and Electro Ball when players receive him.

Holing the Electrium Z will unlock the Gigavolt Havoc attack, dealing 160 base damage to other Pokemon Sun and Moon creatures. GameSpot states that due to the game's algorithms for encountering wild Pokémon, it is impossible to find a shiny Tapu Koko in the wild, making this the first time trainers can get a shiny Tapu Koko legitimately. There's no end date for this promotion, but it's better to be safe than sorry and grab Tapu Koko now.
