The once accused glitch introduced in Pokémon Go was shortly after revealed as Meltan, and now its evolutionary form comes to light. In the trailer above, we see Professor Oak and Willow once again, this time, they present us with Melmetal, the first legendary Pokémon evolution introduced in the franchise.
This Hex Nut creature has gone from eight inches to eight-feet tall at nearly 2,000 pounds. The creature is a Pokémon Go exclusive that can be transferred over to the upcoming Pokémon: Let’s Go games, even though it will mainly consist of Generation 1 creatures. However, it is a process to get Meltan to evolve.
According to a statement:
“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.”
