Meltan Evolution News For Pokemon: Let’s Go and Pokemon GO

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced the discovery of a new Pokémon, Melmetal. Meltan, a Mythical Pokémon recently discovered in the world of Pokémon GO, evolves into Melmetal, making Meltan the first Mythical Pokémon known to be able to evolve.

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.

Name: Melmetal
Category: Hex Nut Pokémon
Height: 8’2″
Weight: 1,763.7 lbs.
Type: Steel

Evolving Meltan into Melmetal
The Evolution of the Mythical Pokémon Meltan into Melmetal can only occur in Pokémon GO and requires 400 Meltan Candies. Like Candies that can be collected for other Pokémon, players can obtain Meltan Candies by catching Meltan (after opening a Mystery Box) and sending them to Professor Willow or by walking around with Meltan selected as their Buddy Pokémon. Fans can also obtain Meltan Candies by sending that Pokémon from Pokémon GO to the Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! video games. Fans can have fun exploring the Kanto region with Melmetal once they bring it over from Pokémon GO to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!

To see the latest update on the Meltan research being conducted by Professor Oak and Professor Willow, please view this video:

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will be available exclusively on Nintendo Switch on November 16, 2018. For more information, please visit

  1. Hey to the Administrator of this blog!!!! TRINE 4 CONFIRMED!!!! And its coming to Switch baby. I love it I love it. Thank you. That’s how you make a game Immediately!!!!

  2. That’s going to take me an age to evolve it then if ever! Pokémon that evolve at level 50 take long enough! 😔

  3. Wow now Trine 4 confirmed and beating Pikmin franchise and Pikmin is older. SMH. How cab poorer developers make games immediately and richer developers wait 5 years before making a sequel? It would seem the richer developers would make games immediately and the poorer developers would struggle trying because of the cost.

  4. This is bullshit alright.

    Do I HAVE to buy a smart phone (and LGPE), JUST to play Pokemon GO, JUST to catch, actually raise, and evolve Meltan?

    Even methods for obtaining Zorua/Zoroark weren’t this intrusive!
