Meet Melmetal, Meltan’s Evolved Form

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!

We have now discovered that Meltan can evolve. Its Evolution is called Melmetal! This is the first Mythical Pokemon with the ability to evolve.

  • Name: Melmetal
  • Category: Hex Nut Pokemon
  • Type: Steel
  • Height: 8’02”

This is the first time that Melmetal has been seen in 3,000 years! In ancient times, this Pokemon 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’s Powerful Double Iron Bash

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!

—Just as with the Candies you collect for other Pokemon, you’ll 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 Pokemon.
