Players of Pokémon GO have been noticing a strange creature appearing all over the world – a completely unknown looking Pokémon that once captured turns into a Ditto. Today, Niantic has revealed what Pokémon those Ditto’s have been appearing as – Meltan.

Meltan Pokémon are scheduled to appear in the upcoming Switch game, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee, and the corresponding official site there are some further details.

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.

The reveal also came with a short video trailer which shows Professors Oak and WIllow chatting about the new discovery. Lets watch, shall we…

The Lets Go site also states that “Pokémon GO is somehow key to meeting this curious new Pokémon in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee” so it might be worthwhile to go out and catch one if you haven’t already.
