Meltan is a Steel type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the
Hex Nut Pokémon.
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.
Meltan is a new mythical Pokémon available in Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee. It is obtained by connecting Let's Go Pikachu or Let's Go Eevee with the smartphone game Pokémon GO. First, send any Pokémon from GO to Let's Go to receive a Mystery Box item in GO. Opening the box causes Meltan to spawn in Pokémon GO. These Meltan can be caught and then sent over to Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee.
Meltan evolves into Melmetal in Pokémon GO, with 400 Meltan Candies.
Note: Meltan has an ability assigned in the code for Pokémon Let's Go, even though abilities are not available.
