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.


Reported Sightings of Ditto as New Mythical Pokémon, 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.


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.

The official Pokémon website confirmed the in-game push notification that Deoxys Normal Forme will be available in upcoming EX Raids in Pokémon GO.


Deoxys Approaches in EX Raids!

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 GO - New Ways for Trainers to Play Together Coming This Fall!

Niantic posted a Summer 2018 recap of the games they are working on and it seems as though it was a very successful summer of 2018 for Pokémon GO. From May 2018, the game saw an increase in active usage of 35%! Niantic also announced that in the fall, there will be new ways for Trainers to play Pokémon GO together.


The Rise of AR, Summer Adventures and Updates for the Fall

It’s been an incredible summer for the team here at Niantic with a flurry of activity all around the globe. More than 400,000 Trainers joined our three global Pokémon GO events in Dortmund, Germany, Chicago, USA, and Yokosuka, Japan and millions more joined together to play with them in a series of global quests to unlock rewards for all players. There is nothing quite like strolling through a beautiful park catching Pokémon with thousands of other players on a gorgeous summer day.

Even more inspiring for us at Niantic was the site of people from all walks of life, all ages, families and friends coming together to enjoy these mega adventures together. And as many of you Trainers know, the fun of playing together wasn’t restricted to these mega events. Pokémon GO Community Days have become regular monthly celebrations organized locally by Trainers around the world.

Over the summer, tens of millions of Trainers around the world played Pokémon GO together every month, with a 35% increase in active usage since May. Since we introduced the new Social features at the end of June, more than 113 million Friend connections have been made and 2.2 billion Gifts have been sent to friends, showcasing how Trainers truly enjoy interacting with one another and playing together.

While the headlines are filled with examples of technology being used to divide us, our experiences this summer deepen our conviction that technology can be harnessed to enhance our lives in a positive way and bring us all closer together and strengthen our connection with the communities where we live and play.

To take that idea even further, we’ve been working with the Knight Foundation on a host of programs to tie AR games to civic engagement. We recently announced a new Fellowship program that will provide select community leaders the tools to integrate Pokémon GO into Open Street events in cities across the U.S. If you’re near Charlotte, North Carolina on September 30 or Macon, Georgia on October 7 make sure to check out these unique events that will take Trainers on a tour across these historic cities.

Meanwhile, back at Niantic HQ, we are eagerly planning even better events for next year!

Getting ready for an exciting Fall

Even as summer fades in the Northern Hemisphere, we are working on some surprises for Pokémon GO this Fall to give Trainers even more ways to play together.

A special Ultra Bonus Event will take place from September 13th, 2018 until October 23rd, 2018, spanning multiple different in-game events for Pokémon GO.


Professor Willow’s Global Research Challenge Ends with a Power-Packed Ultra Bonus Event!

Trainers, Throughout the past few months, many of you have worked hard to meet the goals of Professor Willow’s Global Research Challenge. During the Dortmund Safari Zone event in June, Pokémon GO Fest in July, and the Yokosuka Safari Zone event in August, Trainers from all around the world completed a variety of research tasks for Professor Willow with dedication and enthusiasm. And now it’s time to celebrate with a special Ultra Bonus Event!

First, starting September 13 at 1:00 P.M. (PDT), Trainers all over the world will be able to encounter three Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region! Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres will appear in Raid Battles until September 20. And if you’re lucky, you may be able to encounter their Shiny forms! Also, Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region will appear more frequently all over the world and show up more frequently in Raid Battles until September 30!

And there’s more! On September 20 at 1:00 P.M. (PDT), Mewtwo will come to Raid Battles for the first time ever! Mewtwo has previously only been available to Trainers invited to EX Raids, but now all Trainers will be able to challenge the Legendary Psychic-type Pokémon until October 23 at 1:00 P.M. (PDT). So prepare yourself, and don’t miss your opportunity to encounter this powerful Pokémon before it disappears!

Finally, there is one more special surprise: Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Tauros will be joining the Alolan Pokémon in 7 km Eggs through the end of September! These Pokémon have not migrated to many parts of the world, so don’t miss this unique opportunity to send Gifts to friends and finally achieve a complete Kanto Pokédex!

Thank you, Trainers, for working together to complete Professor Willow’s research. There is plenty more to explore, and many new Pokémon to discover. So let’s get out there and GO!
