Pokémon GO’s mystery Pokémon that has been appearing in the past week, and once caught turns into a Ditto, has been revealed as a brand new mythical Pokémon named Meltan.
Revealed this morning, Meltan is a Steel-Type Hex Nut Pokémon that weighs 17.6 pounds and is 0’08” tall.
A further description of Meltan was also given on the Pokémon Let’s Go page.
“Most of Meltan’s body is made from liquid metal, and its shape is very fluid. It can use its liquid arms and legs to corrode metal and absorb it into its own body. Meltan generates electricity using the metal it absorbs from outside sources. It uses this electricity as an energy source and also as an attack that can be fired from its eye. Clearly a curious Pokémon, Meltan is very expressive and shows an interest in all kinds of things.”
