The premiere of Pokemon Let’s Go is fast approaching. Consequently, it is also a good time to dispel the secret about the mysterious mystical Pokemon who is to appear in this series. I’m talking about Meltan, Pokemon about the legendary number 152 in the Pokémon Kanto.

The mystery of the Meltan Pokemon

The last episode that appeared on the official Pokemon channel in the social network shows us the final form, which is Melmetal. According to world history, it has not been seen for 3000 years! In ancient times, this Pokémon was worshiped because of the power to create metal. As we find out, he is also the first mystical Pokemon who has the ability to evolve. Its name already says in advance that it is of steel type.

Pokemon has a specific movement, and it is Double Iron Bash. This unique steel-type motion allows Melmetal to use the hexagon nut in the chest as an axis to rotate his powerful arms, dealing a double blow to the opponent. The weight of the heavy hexagonal nuts on the shoulders combined with this rotational movement gives this movement extraordinary power. After the hit, it can even make the opponent incapable for one turn! But how to get such a companion in the game? The way is simple – we will have to help ourselves by playing Pokemon Go additionally.


A great hunt for Meltan in Pokemon Go

We already know how the process of acquiring this mystical friend will take place. It became clear that Meltan would be able to evolve in Melmetal only in Pokémon GO. To evolve it, the player will have to get 400 meltan candies. If you do not look at it, it’s a lot of work. However, to make the task easier, we can use the proverbial abbreviations. Once caught in Meltan’s wilderness, we can send back to Professor Willow, exchange him with friends, set him as our Buddha, use Rare candy, which we got after winning raids or even send our prey to our copy of Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! A novelty can also be the information that we do not need to get this mystical Pokemon on our own, and our friends from Pokemon Go can help us with it, giving it to us as a gift.

The Mystery Box is the key to catching Meltan

In order to catch Meltan, you must have a Mystery Box that you can get by sending Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! This item closes immediately after use. The only way to re-open it is to wait a certain time, and then send another Pokémon to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! But what if we do not have our own copy of Pokemon Let’s Go? Friends come to help. To get hold of the Mystery Box, we can send Pokemon to our friend’s Switch. However, it will be important to limit – the player will be able to have only one Mystery Box for a while. After opening this mysterious box in Pokemon Go, some Meltans will appear on the map in our area, which we will be able to capture.
