Mythical Pokemon Meltan Research Update Reveals Its Evolution

Initially announced last November, the Pokemon Company has revealed Mythical Pokemon Meltan’s evolution.

According to the new Meltan Research Update being conducted by Professor Willow and Professor Oak, Meltan can be evolved into Melmetal. In Pokemon GO, players need to collect 400 Meltan candies to get the evolved Melmetal.

Mythical Melmetal Stats

  • 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.

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 gives this move extraordinary power. After it hits, it may even make the target flinch!
