The mysterious Pokémon that appeared in Pokémon GO a few days ago (and leaked in the network traffic) has officially been revealed.
This new Mythical Pokémon is called Meltan and it's a Steel-type. This Pokémon will be available in Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee.

  • Name: Meltan
  • Category: Hex Nut Pokémon
  • Type: Steel
  • Height: 0'08"
  • Weight: 17.6 lbs.
Most of Meltan’s body is made from liquid metal, and its shape is very fluid. It can use its liquid arms and legs to corrode metal and absorb it into its own body.
Meltan generates electricity using the metal it absorbs from outside sources. It uses this electricity as an energy source and also as an attack that can be fired from its eye.
Clearly a curious Pokémon, Meltan is very expressive and shows an interest in all kinds of things.

There was a video they made to introduce Meltan, where Professor Willow and Oak speak to each other about the GO appearances.
I don't like Meltan that much, but I think this is one of the coolest ways they revealed a Pokemon.
The game characters were talking about events of the real-world discoveries players were finding on Pokemon Go.

Got to admit a cool reveal, and seems to have potential for an awesome Pokemon! I hope some of the rumors of it being like Zygarde are true!

I agree with you two, the reveal was really cool :yesyes: the day before they found the Pokémon in the network data and after that they started the community day like always and... at the end Meltan was everywhere XD
Yesterday I found one but I wasn't able to catch it because the PokéStop was a little far :yeahyeah:
