Nintendo has announced more details about the newest Legendary in the Pokémon franchise. We now know that Meltan can evolve into the superpowered, and super-sized, Melmetal. this Steel-type Pokémon is a massive 1,700 pound beast with a lot of strength to throw around. The Pokémo also has a new move called Double Iron Bash, which can do a ton of raw damage.
Meltan can evolve into Melmetal in Pokémon GO by using 400 Meltan Candies, and that means one thing. You’re going to need to capture a ton of Meltan and send them by the dozen to Professor Willow. Once you’ve managed to evolve a Meltan, it can then be transported from the mobile game to the Switch version. I hope Nintendo and Niantic keep more of these collaboration events going in the future.
Pokémon: Let’s Go will feature a bunch of other unique features too.
You can become a master trainer in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Eevee! by battling your way through the Elite Four and a new spate of Master Trainers. The game will also feature various Legendary like Mewtwo and the three Legendary birds.
In other Pokémon news, Pokémon GO is running a pair of new events. Niantic is running a new raid and capture event for Halloween featuring the Legendary Giratina. There’s also a Gengar Day event coming up which will see Shiny Gengars added to Pokemon GO.
