The first Generation 8 Pokemon Meltan is the new special research task in Pokemon GO, Niantic announced.
Mythical Pokemon Meltan first appeared in Pokemon GO after the Community Day event last month ended. During his first appearance, Meltan is transforming into a regular Ditto.
Now few weeks after its first appearance, Niantic is introducing the first Generation 8 Pokemon in the Pokemon GO as the featured Pokemon in the special research task.
The new Meltan Special Research tasks involve a new item, Mystery Box, that when opened, it attracts Mythical Meltan. According to Professor Oak’s research, Meltan is attracted to the Mystery Box where for some reasons, it contains the characteristics of Meltan.
It seems like Pokemon Go will be the first one to capture the Mythical Meltan. Of course, this new Pokemon is connected with the new game Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee and Let’s Go, Pikachu and we still have no idea how will be the box becomes available in Pokemon GO to attract Meltan.
Pokemon Let’s Go is set to launch on November 16th so I think we still have to wait until that time to actually see how this special research goes.
