Nintendo has revealed how players will go about catching the newest Pokemon, Meltan, although this little metal-based Pokemon is still quite mysterious. The process for getting a Meltan is a bit involved, but Professors Oak and Willow have taken to YouTube to hash out all of the details.
To get things started, you’ll first need to transfer a Pokemon from Pokemon GO to Pokemon: Let’s Go! In doing so, you’ll receive a Mystery Box, a special item that will allow trainers to encounter Meltan in Pokemon GO. After you catch one, the Mystery Box will close, but it can be re-opened by transferring another Pokemon to the Let’s Go! games.
The Pokemon Company has us quite spoiled this week, releasing not just one, but two videos teasing the new Pokemon. In an adorable animated short, we get a glimpse of some Meltan exploring the world, which ends with a glimpse at what very well could be the evolved form of Meltan.
We’ll have to wait for the launch of Pokemon: Let’s Go! to find out. Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! And Let’s Go, Eevee! Launch on November 16 on Nintendo Switch.
