Pokémon Sun and Moon players now have a chance to download a special Legendary Pokémon. Shiny Tapu Koko has been released in Japan for some time now, but with the release of the Shiny Tapu Koko Premium Collection TCG set, trainers can now download this cool-looking Pokémon.

Here’s how you download Shiny Tapu Koko from the Mystery Gift onto your Pokémon Sun or Moon game.

First, once you boot up the game you will go to the MYSTERY GIFT tab. Select RECEIVE GIFT and then GET VIA INTERNET. Connect to the internet and wait for the game to find the Shiny Tapu Koko.

Once the game has found the gift, it will transfer it over to you. Afterwards just go to your nearest Pokémon Center and talk to the man in the blue and orange shirt. The Shiny Tapu Koko will be transferred to your PC.

This Shiny Tapu Koko will come at level 60 with the ability Electric Surge and the attacks Nature’s Madness, Discharge, Agility and Electro Ball. The Legendary Pokémon will always be Timid Nature which is actually very good for Tapu Koko.

It also comes holding the Electric Seed, which raises Tapu Koko’s defense when Electric Terrain hits the field.

Shiny Tapu Koko will automatically have at least three perfect IVs but if you want to go for more, you can soft reset your game until you get the IVs you want but you’re better off training Tapu Koko to level 100 and using some bottle caps on it.

Pokémon Sun and Moon trainers can download the Shiny Tapu Koko starting July 13, but there is not yet an end date set. Still, we recommend doing this as soon as possible.

So what moves will you teach your new Shiny Tapu Koko? What IVs did you choose to accept? Let us know in the comments section below.
