Pokemon Sun and Moon's next freebie is an ultra-rare shiny

The shiny form of Tapu Koko is unavailable in the game itself so the only way players can get this free Pokemon is through this giveaway, similar to numerous other Pokemon Sun and Moon giveaways Nintendo has had in the past.

Once players have completed this step, they need only pick up their gift from the delivery man at any Pokemon Center.

Select Mystery Gift on the main menu.

Unlike the standard yellow-and-orange Tapu Koko, the shiny coloration is a suave black and orange. The fact that Tapu Koko is a legendary Pokemon means that there's only one of them in the game, but there are more reasons beyond its legendary status for you to pick this up.

This Tapu Koko will be delivered at level 60 and will have a full roster of moves when you first meet it: Nature's Madness, Agility, Electro Ball, and Discharge.

If players place a Z-Crystal in Tapu Koko's hand, it will become much more powerfu. Luckily, Tapu Koko has the ability Electric Surge, which creates an Electric Terrain upon entering the battlefield. A shiny Tapu Koko actually can't be found in wild in Pokémon Sun and Moon, meaning that this is the only way to legitimately get one. It's probably best to go ahead and grab it.

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