Meet Meltan, the Mysterious New Pokemon!

Meltan 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.

Name: Meltan
Category: Hex Nut Pokémon
Height: 0’08”
Weight: 17.6 lbs.
Type: Steel

In Pokémon GO, sightings of Ditto that have transformed into Meltan have been reported. Professor Oak and Professor Willow have 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! Updates will be provided as more is discovered about this mysterious Mythical Pokémon.

It's like they basically just shoved a fucking part from a Klefki with an Unown's head onto a Ditto's body. This thing better have some awesome lore to it, and a cute cry. But like someone already said, it now officially exists and doesn't totally offend my eyes. And sorta... Cute...

Wait a minute, is an Steel and can conduct electricity yet not Electric-type sub? Yep GameFreak logic.

Well the fact that its usable in Let's GO means its a Gen 7 pokemon. I didn't like it at first, but the design as grown on me and its pretty cute in motion. I hope you don't need Let's Go in order to use it for the Gen 8 games tho >.<

Oh you will, can bet GameFreak will gonna make ya there.

I hope the Gen 8 starter Pokemon are better looking Smile

Wonder if it evolves into anything?
