This past weekend, Pokémon GO players around the world reported an unusual sighting after the conclusion of the Chikorita Community Day – a brand new Pokémon that, when caught, would reveal itself to be a Ditto in disguise.
Today, The Pokémon Company International finally put a name to the cute, metal bolt face – Meltan. A brand new Mythical Pokémon set to make its debut in Nintendo Switch pair Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu and Let’s Go, Eevee following their worldwide release on 16th November 2018.
A Steel-type, most of Meltan’s body is said to be made of liquid metal, which it can use to corrode metal before absorbing it into its own body. Meltan can also use this metal as an electricity to both power itself, and fire a devastating attack from its eye!
Meltan is most likely the previously teased Pokémon that players will be able to obtain in the Let’s Go pair and transfer to Pokémon GO.
What do you think of Meltan?
