The Legendary Pokémon Shiny Tapu Koko is now available to download to Pokémon Sun and Moon. Here’s how you do it.
The Shiny Pokémon Tapu Koko is available to download to all copies of Pokémon Sun and Moon until August 14th, 2017.
The level 60 shiny version of Tapu Koko comes with the Electric Surge ability, which creates an Electric Terrain when it enters battle. In addition, if Tapu Koko is holding the included Electric Seed, its defence will also increase. It also comes with the following moves: Nature’s Madness, Discharge, Agility, and Electro Ball.
Tapu Koko can also take advantage of Sun and Moon’s new Z-Crystal moves. If Tapu Koko is holding Tapunium Z, the Nature’s Madness move will convert into the Guardian of Alola attack, which chips off a mighty 75% of the opponent’s HP. Electrium Z will generate the Gigavolt Havoc attack, which deals a 160 base damage.
How to download Shiny Tapu Koko
- Charge up your 3DS, turn it on and make sure you can connect to the interwebs.
- Boot up you copy of Sun or Moon and select the option for ‘Mystery Gift’ on the main menu.
- Select the ‘Receive Gift’.
- Then select ‘Get via Internet’.
- Select ‘Yes’ when asked if you want to connect to the internet.
- Knit a cardigan while the 3DS searches for gifts.
- When your cardigan is completed, select ‘Power up with Shiny Tapu Koko!’
- Once received, your new level 60 Tapu Koko can be retrieved from the delivery man who can be found in any Pokémon Center. You’ll also receive a Wonder Card that can be found in the ‘Mystery Gift’ menu.
- And remember to save your game, just in case!
