‘Pokemon Go’ adds Mythical Pokémon Meltan
Meltan is ready for catching
Nintendo announced today that a new Mythical Pokémon has been discovered in the world of “Pokémon GO” and his name is Meltan. The new character is a Steel-type Pokémon with a body made mostly of liquid metal, which makes its shape very fluid. This Pokémon can use its liquid arms and legs to corrode metal and absorb it into its body. Meltan can generate electricity using the metal it absorbs from outside sources. It uses this electricity as an energy source and for an attack it fires from its eye.
Officially, Meltan is a Hex Nut Pokémon, coming in at 0’08” high and weighing 17.6 lbs of Steel.
According to today’s announcement, Professor Oak and Professor Willow have already started research on Meltan. Professor Oak, one of the leading authorities in the field of Pokémon research, is based in the Kanto region’s Pallet Town. In “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!” and “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!,” he gives a Pokédex to both you and your rival—entrusting you with his dream of completing it. Meanwhile, with the help of “Pokémon GO” players around the world, Professor Willow conducts his research in the field to fully understand the habitats and distribution of Pokémon. He was once an assistant to Professor Oak, and he talks to Oak, his mentor, whenever he runs into a hitch in his research.
It has been determined that Pokémon GO is somehow key to meeting Meltan in “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!” and “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!” Nintendo stated that more updates will be provided as more is discovered about this mysterious Mythical Pokémon.
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will be available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system on November 16, 2018 and is available to pre-order here on Amazon. You can also shop the “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! + Poké Ball Plus Pack” at Amazon.
