Last week, a new Pokémon was seemingly discovered in the network stream for Pokémon Go. Since then, the strange looking creature appeared in the actual game itself, though attempts at capturing the creature caused it to turn into a Ditto. While many thought this might be some kind of error, it appears that this has all been a bit of viral marketing to officially reveal the mythical Pokémon Meltan!

According to The Pokémon Company, Meltan is a Steel type Pokémon. Since the Steel type wasn’t added until the second Pokémon generation, this makes Meltan the only pure Steel type that will be available to players in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! It is not yet known how players can acquire the “Hex Nut” Pokémon, but apparently Pokémon: Let’s Go players will have to link up with Go in some capacity to obtain it!

We’ll have more information on Meltan and Pokémon: Let’s Go as it develops! In the meantime, let us know what you think of the new Pokémon in the comments below!
