Pokemon Go Reveals How to Catch Meltan


Their findings reveal a little about it, including how it'll be caught in Pokemon Go on mobile and how it can then be transferred and used in the Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee games on Nintendo Switch.

Plenty Meltan are all over the page, including one you can rotate freely to get a better look at the liquid metal 'mon. The Pokemon Company had previously teased that the way to acquire Meltan involved linking Let's Go with Pokemon Go, but now we know exactly how you can get your hands on one. A week later, we learned that Pokemon's name was Meltan, and that it was a mystery to even the Pokemon world's most esteemed professors. Once the Mystery Box is opened, players will be able to find Meltan in the wild and capture it, and then send it to Pokemon: Let's Go.

Additionally, a new set of Meltan themed Special Research is coming to Pokemon GO this winter: "New Special Research quests will be coming to Pokémon GO that will let you embark on a search for the Mythical Pokémon Meltan".


It's all about cross-game synergy, you see: players will be rewarded with a Mysterious Box the first time they transfer a Pokemon from Pokemon Go to Pokemon Let's Go. Getting a mystery box requires you to transfer your Pokemon from Go into Let's Go, which means you'll still need both games to have a chance of seeing Meltan.or will you?! It's a odd new addition to the Kanto region, but one that feels right at home in the wider world of Pokémon. When the Box is received, players will have a limited time of 30 minutes to catch Meltan in Pokemon Go before the Box closes. This game involves leading all of the Pokemon to the goal before time runs out; if you manage to clear it, you'll be rewarded with sweets, which you can feed to Pokemon to power up their stats.

The Pokemon Company has shared a lot of new information about Meltan and how it can be caught in Pokemon GO.
