Today, The Pokemon Company showed off Meltan achieving some true gains.
The developer released a new video today of Meltan evolving – into Melmetal!
According to Pokemon’s official website, you will need to gather at least 400 Meltan candies in Pokemon GO, before Meltan can evolve into Melmetal. It also seems like this is the only way that Meltan can evolve, for now.
Check out more details and artwork below:
We have now discovered that Meltan can evolve. Its Evolution is called Melmetal! This is the first Mythical Pokémon with the ability to evolve.
- Name: Melmetal
- Category: Hex Nut Pokémon
- Type: Steel
- Height: 8’02”
- Weight: 1,763.7 lbs.
This is the first time that Melmetal has been seen in 3,000 years! In ancient times, this Pokémon was worshiped for its power to create metal. When Meltan evolves into Melmetal, it grows vastly stronger than before. Its body hardens as a result of its Evolution, and it becomes incredibly sturdy.
The bulk of its body is made of liquid metal. Its arms in particular are very flexible, and they can whip forward to deliver devastating punches.
