Last month Pokémon Go players were introduced to a mysterious Pokémon called Meltan, a Pokémon with a hexagon nut with a liquid metal body. When caught, the Meltans would just transform to Dittos. However, with new research evidence, Meltan evolves into Melmetal.
Melmetal is a Pokémon who has not been seen for 3,000 thousand years and unlike the size of Meltan, Melmetal stands at over 8 Feet tall and weighs 1800 pounds. Its liquid metal body is incredibly flexible that allows it to whip its arms forward to strike opponents.
On the Pokémon Company website, new information of Melmetal has been added which describes this mythical Pokémon and its ability to Evolve.
We have now discovered that Meltan can evolve. Its Evolution is called Melmetal! This is the first Mythical Pokémon with the ability to evolve. 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.
Melmetal possesses a unique Steel-type physical move called Double Iron Bash. With this powerful move, Melmetal uses the hex nut in its chest like an axle to spin its powerful arms around, dealing a double strike to the opponent. The weight of the heavy hex nuts on its arms combined with this spinning motion give this move extraordinary power. After it hits, it may even make the target flinch!
Now if you wish to evolve your Meltan, you will need 400 Meltan Candies. Just like the Candies that you collect for other Pokémon, you will be able to get Meltan Candies by doing things like catching Meltan, sending it to Professor Willow, or Having Meltan travel around with you as your Buddy Pokémon. Take a look at the video by The Pokémon Company which explains Meltan evolving into Melmetal:
In addition, you can also get Candies when you send Meltan from Pokémon GO to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Plus, you’ll also be able to use some other handy shortcuts to speed up this Evolution, such as getting more Meltan Candies by trading with friends or using Rare Candies to help you along the way.
