Meltan's Evolution, Melmetal, Revealed in New 'Pokémon Go' Trailer

New information on Meltan seems to pop up every week, but a new video confirms that mysterious form at the end of the last Pokémon Go and Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Pokémon Let's Go Eevee trailer is indeed its evolution. And it has a name — Melmetal.

Melmetal is the confirmed evolution of Meltan, making the tiny Steel-type Pokémon the first Mythical that can evolve. This also confirms that Meltan is a Mythical Pokémon and not a Legendary or just a normal Pokémon from a certain region.

In the new Pokémon trailer, Professor Willow of Pokémon Go and Professor Oak from Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee continue their discussion on Meltan. Willow explains to Oak that the Meltan like to absorb metal and cling together. This lets Meltan evolve into Melmetal.

Check out the newest Meltan trailer featuring the new evolution, Melmetal below.

Here's some official flavor text on Melmetal along with some of its stats:

Melmetal was worshiped in ancient times as a Pokémon with the power to create metal. Because of its Evolution from Meltan, its body has hardened and is now incredibly sturdy. Melmetal is made of liquid metal, and its flexible arms can be whipped forward to deliver a devastating punch. It can also execute a powerful, unique Steel-type physical move known as Double Iron Bash. By using the hex nut in its chest like an axle to spin its arms around, Melmetal can deal a double strike to its opponent. The weight of the heavy hex nuts on its arms combined with the spinning motion gives the Double Iron Bash move extraordinary power.

Name: Melmetal

Category: Hex Nut Pokémon

Height: 8'2"

Weight: 1,763.7 lbs.

Type: Steel

The Pokémon Company also revealed how trainers can evolve Meltan into Melmetal. Evolving Meltan into Melmetal can only happen in Pokémon Go after obtaining 400 Meltan Candies.

Pokémon Go trainers will be able to catch Meltan once they receive a Mystery Box. Trainers will receive the Mystery Box after transferring their first Pokémon from Go to Let's Go. The box will close after it's used but will open again after some time has passed.

The easier way to obtain the 400 Meltan Candies in Pokémon Go is by walking with it as your Buddy Pokémon.

Melmetal also has a brand new move called Double Iron Bash that is a powerful Steel-type attack that hits two times. It also has a chance to make the opposing Pokémon flinch.
