US Name: Meltan
Jp. Name: Meltan
Classification: Hex Nut Pokémon
This new Pokémon was hinted at during the Pokémon 2018 Video Game Conference. It is shown as being able to be sent to Pokémon GO through the Let's Go & Pokémon GO connectivity
On September 21st 2018, the mysterious Pokémon appeared on the Pokémon GO network traffic, replacing Kecleon's images and models. Then, on September 22nd 2018, after the Chikorita Community Day ran, it started spawning randomly in Pokémon GO, turning into a Ditto when captured.
On September 25th 2018, it was finally unveiled as Meltan, a new Mythical Pokémon.
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.
