  1. I guess this is great news for Pokemon players. By the way, rumor has it that it is only by evolving Meltan in Pokemon GO that one can obtain Melmetal in Let’s Go. So make sure not to transfer it right away.

    1. I believe it’s the only way currently unless they patch it in someway. Plus one should send meltan over. You end up with a bunch of them from the box anyways. Also you need him for the pokedex.
