Meltan : A newly discovered Mythical Pokemon
Today I am going to give you a little review about Meltan, a newly introduced Pokémon in Pokémon Go. Meltan is a new Pokémon in Gen 7 with its new characteristics which you can’t see in Pokémons of previous Gen. The Pokémon Company previously tell us about Meltan and the way how to catch this creature but in a limited manner. I have found out some of its unique features and the method of catching it, from the original trailer and official Pokémon site. I love the trailer, where Professor Oak and Professor Willow exchange their thoughts about a Mystical Pokémon. This trailer describing a new box which I will be covering and how that’s going to be working, and how to actually obtain Meltan within Pokémon Go and Pokémon let’s go.
Pokemon Go Meltan Features:
- Physically this pokemon resembling a ditto, as it has a ditto-like-body. Their bodies are wholly moveable as they can move their head, arms, and legs; so they have nuts on their whole body including head and arms.
- It attracts you with its Nut head and gray body. It seems like their bodies are made out of some kind of liquid metal.
- They love all kinds of metal (Silver, Iron, Cooper) and have a unique quality of absorbing any form of metal into their bodies with the help of arms and legs.
- A pretty interesting thing about these Pokémons is that they can generate electricity from the metal it absorbs, and this electricity is a source of energy for them because they use it at the time of attacking (fired it from their eyes) to save or protect themselves from any harm.
- These mysterious pokemons can cause trouble for themselves, but they also know how to come out from that trouble.
- It could be the mythical pokemon. And when you catch it, it always turns into a Ditto.
- It seems to be a very cooperative and expressive pokemon as he shows his interest in all kinds of things.
How and where to catch a Meltan:
The Pokémon company has been revealed that Meltan is definitely going to be a capturable Pokémon in Pokémon Go and you will be able to transfer that over to let’s go Pikachu and let’s go Eevee, and possibly after the mainline series of games. There is a unique way to capture it and that would be via a mystery box in Pokémon Go. So you have to do a set of quests and challenges to accomplish definitely an event that is going to get you this box with the key to capture this Pokémon.
In the process of catching a Meltan, you have to follow two steps. The first step is to send a Pokémon (you can send any Pokémon from gen 1 you like) from your mobile over to the Switch titles. After completing this task you will receive a special gift called Mystery box in your game. Once the mystery box opened, Meltan will appear in Pokémon go but his appearance will be for those players who will be able to open that mystery box. A mystery box closes itself after it’s used once, the only way to open it again is to wait a set amount of time and then send another Pokémon to Pokémon let’s go Pikachu or let’s go Eevee.
You can also get a mystery box by sending Pokémon to a friend’s Nintendo Switch game but can only have one mystery box at a time. You should have to wait for the next one, I think there will be a 30 minutes timer. When you transfer Pokémon into Pokémon let’s go from Pokémon Go, you will receive this mystery box but you can only use it once then you have to wait for the cooldown but after that, you will able to transfer more.
In order to get Meltan you have to buy Pokémon let’s go Pikachu and Pokémon let’s go Eevee. But there is another way to make it easy for you is that ask your friends, do they have a copy of Pokémon let’s go Pikachu and let’s go Eevee? If they said yes, then you transfer a pokemon into their game for their switch you will receive this mystery box, so you don’t necessarily have to purchase it and it’s not locked to any one particular device.
The Pokémon Company launches their new games (Pokémon Let’s go Pikachu and Pokémon Let’s go Eevee) on November 16, 2018. And not only that they will also release Poke ball plus on that same day. It is the mystical, Gen 7 Pokémon, because Pokémon let’s go Pikachu and Pokémon let’s go Eevee are Gen 7 games, released on the same date. We will also be able to catch this mysterious Pokémon easily with the upcoming Poke Ball Plus.
