A few weeks ago, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company revealed a new mythical Pokemon named Meltan will be debuting in the upcoming Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee! for the Nintendo Switch. Apparently, Meltan has an evolution and we found out more information about it.
In order for Meltan to evolve to Melmetal, players must be playing Pokemon Go as it will only occur in that game. Players will need to acquire 400 Meltan Candies from Pokemon Go in order for it to evolve. For those who have been playing Pokemon Go, Meltan Candies can be obtained by catching Meltan (after opening a Mystery Box) and sending them to Professor Willow or by walking around with Meltan as the buddy Pokemon. Other ways to get Meltan candies is by sending that Pokemon from Pokemon GO to Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee!.
Here’s an overview of Melmetal, the evolution of Meltan:
Melmetal: Revived after 3,000 Years
Melmetal was worshiped in ancient times as a Pokémon with the power to create metal. Because of its Evolution from Meltan, its body has hardened and is now incredibly sturdy. Melmetal is made of liquid metal, and its flexible arms can be whipped forward to deliver a devastating punch. It can also execute a powerful, unique Steel-type physical move known as Double Iron Bash. By using the hex nut in its chest like an axle to spin its arms around, Melmetal can deal a double strike to its opponent. The weight of the heavy hex nuts on its arms combined with the spinning motion gives the Double Iron Bash move extraordinary power.
