After it was discovered in Pokemon Go, The Pokemon Company has officially revealed a brand new Hex Nut Pokemon that will be coming to Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! called Meltan.
Alongside the announcement, they also shared a wealth of information regarding Meltan, which you can find below:
What is Meltan?
A new species of Pokemon—one that nobody has ever seen before—has been discovered! This Pokemon is called Meltan, and as of now, it is quite the enigma.
Category: Hex Nut Pokemon
Weight: 17.6 lbs.
Most of Meltan’s body is made from liquid metal, and its shape is very fluid. It can use its liquid arms and legs to corrode metal and absorb it into its own body.
Meltan generates electricity using the metal it absorbs from outside sources. It uses this electricity as an energy source and also as an attack that can be fired from its eye.
Clearly a curious Pokemon, Meltan is very expressive and shows an interest in all kinds of things.
Mysterious Pokemon Go Sightings
Many reports have come in about sightings of Ditto in Pokemon Go that have transformed into Meltan. The number of sightings has significantly decreased over the past few days, but it appears these “Meltan” are still appearing in various areas.
Research is being conducted on these appearances of Meltan, but we have learned that Pokemon Go is somehow key to meeting this curious new Pokemon in Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! We’ll be sure to provide updates as we discover more!
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are both scheduled to be released on November 16, 2018, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
