Last month, Pokémon Go players began encountering a strange Pokémon that upon being captured, would transform into an ordinary Ditto. Nintendo later revealed that this was a new legendary Pokémon known as “Meltan.” Just the other day, they decided to give us a few more pieces of info regarding this special Pokémon and how to capture it.
A few days after Pokémon players encountered Meltan, Nintendo released a video showing Professor Oak and Professor Willow discussing the new Pokémon. The second episode of that video series appeared yesterday on YouTube, providing even more details on the mysterious Meltan. Check out the video below.
As you can see in the clip, Professor Oak makes a startling discovery – he finds a special box in the same location where they players had supposedly first encountered Meltan. This box somehow is comprised of the same metal that Meltan is made of and is needed to make him appear in Pokémon Go.
According to the official Pokémon site, this “Mystery Box” can be acquired by sending Pokémon captured from Pokémon Go to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu/Eevee!
Nintendo actually released two videos the other day about Meltan. The other clip titled “New Discovery: Rare Footage of Meltan in the Wild!”, introduces even more information on Meltan, including a teased silhouette of an evolved form of the Pokémon.
It seems the evolution can be unlocked by capturing multiple Meltan and somehow combining them. Here’s a closer look at the evolved form’s silhouette from the video.
So far, this Meltan storyline is one of the most interesting things to hit the gaming industry. Combining real-world interactions and gaming has generated huge amount of excitement with players scrambling to learn more. Hopefully Nintendo recognizes the potential here and continues to roll out similar content in the future.
We’ll continue to update you here on any further Meltan news. Stay tuned!
