A Mysterious New Pokémon has Appeared!


Check out Professor Oak and Professor Willow’s latest discovery!

Following multiple appearances over the past few days in Pokémon GO, the mysterious pokémon has finally been revealed. It is a new mythical pokémon known as Meltan!

Meltan started making its first appearances right before past Community Day, where it was picked up in some network traffic and then shortly thereafter starting spawning in-game. On September 21st 2018, the mysterious Pokémon appeared on the Pokémon GO network traffic, replacing Kecleon’s images and models. Following the Community Day, after it was caught in-game, it would turn into a ditto. There were many theories as to what this mysterious pokémon could be, with many believing it is the mysterious gift that was hinted at in Pokémon Let’s Go’s initial release.

However, this morning various different sources released information about this new mythical pokémon. Known as Meltan, it is a steel type pokémon and has been confirmed to be usable in Pokémon Let’s Go. In addition, we have some new pre-release information and official artwork as well! You can see more information in the video attached below.

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 Pokémon, Meltan is very expressive and shows an interest in all kinds of things.
