Mythical Pokémon Meltan

The Pokémon Company International, Niantic, Inc., and Nintendo announced today that a new Mythical Pokémon has been discovered in the world of Pokémon GO: Meltan! Meltan had been appearing in Pokémon GO starting on September 22nd, 2018 during the Chikorita Community Day and then all through the weekend before the official announcement today. High resolution screenshots and artwork from the press release has been added to an Imageboard thread.

MYSTERIOUS NEW POKÉMON APPEARS IN POKÉMON GO

Reported Sightings of Ditto as New Mythical Pokémon, Meltan

Meltan

Meltan is a Steel-type Pokémon with a body made mostly of liquid metal, which makes its shape very fluid. This Pokémon can use its liquid arms and legs to corrode metal and absorb it into its body. Meltan can generate electricity using the metal it absorbs from outside sources. It uses this electricity as an energy source and for an attack it fires from its eye.

Name: Meltan
Category: Hex Nut Pokémon
Height: 0'08"
Weight: 17.6 lbs.
Type: Steel

In Pokémon GO, sightings of Ditto that have transformed into Meltan have been reported. Professor Oak and Professor Willow have started research on Meltan. Professor Oak, one of the leading authorities in the field of Pokémon research, is based in the Kanto region’s Pallet Town. In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, he gives a Pokédex to both you and your rival—entrusting you with his dream of completing it. Meanwhile, with the help of Pokémon GO players around the world, Professor Willow conducts his research in the field to fully understand the habitats and distribution of Pokémon. He was once an assistant to Professor Oak, and he talks to Oak, his mentor, whenever he runs into a hitch in his research.

It has been determined that Pokémon GO is somehow key to meeting Meltan in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Updates will be provided as more is discovered about this mysterious Mythical Pokémon.

Meltan

Pokémon GO, a mobile game that encourages fans to discover and catch Pokémon in the real world, is available for download both for iPhone in the App Store and for Android devices on Google Play.

With Mewtwo appearing in Raid Battles for a limited time, it's time for a new challenger in EX Raids. Deoxys, a powerful Mythical Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region, will be the next opponent in EX Raid Battles. This challenge begins with the next cycle of EX Raid invitations.

EX Raids will be more fun than ever thanks to some exciting improvements. When you receive an EX Raid Pass, it'll be easier to participate in EX Raids because you can now invite one of your Ultra Friends or Best Friends to go with you! By working together with your friends, it'll be easier to defeat Deoxys.

You need to win a Raid Battle at a qualifying Gym to become eligible to receive an EX Raid Pass, so working with your friends will also make it easier to get a pass. And now you can see which Gyms may host an EX Raid through a handy tag when you look at the Gym's details. Don't forget to battle at these Gyms if you'd like the chance to take on Deoxys!

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Eevee! - Legendary Pokémon battles, GO Park, a new Candy system!

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced new information about the highly anticipated Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games, including Legendary Pokémon battles, GO Park information, a new Candy system and more! High resolution artwork and screenshots from the press release have been added to an Imageboard thread.

Exciting New Details Unveiled in Latest Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Trailer!

In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, you’ll be able to use a Bluetooth connection to bring Pokémon you’ve caught in Pokémon GO into the Kanto region to join you on your adventures. Pokémon that are transferred from Pokémon GO will appear in a place called the GO Park complex, which is located in Fuchsia City. The GO Park complex is made up of 20 individual GO Parks, and you can keep up to 50 Pokémon in each one. To take Pokémon stored in the GO Park complex on your journey across the Kanto region, you will have to find and catch them within a GO Park first. You are not limited to connecting with just your own Pokémon GO account, though—there is no limit to the number of Pokémon GO accounts that can be tied to a single save file, so you can receive Pokémon from your friends and family, too. Once you have 25 of the same species of Pokémon in the GO Park complex, you will be able to play a special minigame to win Candies. By using the GO Park complex, you can even transfer Alolan form Pokémon into Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!

By using Candies in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, players will be able to power up their Pokémon. Pokémon will grow stronger after taking part in battles, but by giving your Pokémon Candies, you will be able to raise the specific stats of that Pokémon. Different types of Candies will have different effects—for example, some can increase a Pokémon’s Attack and others can increase a Pokémon’s Speed or Defense. These Candies can be obtained in a variety of ways, including by transferring Pokémon to Professor Oak, by successfully completing games in the GO Park complex’s Play Yard or by taking your Pokémon for a stroll via the Poké Ball Plus* device. By collecting and utilizing these Candies, you can create a very strong Pokémon team.

In the Pokémon world, there are incredibly powerful Pokémon that are rarely seen but are spoken about in the region’s myths. These are known as Legendary Pokémon. In the Kanto region, players will be able to find several Legendary Pokémon, including the Legendary bird Pokémon—Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres. The way to catch these Pokémon in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! is different from how you would catch most other Pokémon. You have to defeat these Pokémon in intense battle before you can have a chance to catch them. It won’t be easy, but once you manage to catch them, these Pokémon can follow you throughout your adventure.
