Melmetal: Revived after 3,000 Years
Melmetal was worshiped in ancient times as a Pokémon with the power to create metal. Because of its Evolution from Meltan, its body has hardened and is now incredibly sturdy. Melmetal is made of liquid metal, and its flexible arms can be whipped forward to deliver a devastating punch. It can also execute a powerful, unique Steel-type physical move known as Double Iron Bash. By using the hex nut in its chest like an axle to spin its arms around, Melmetal can deal a double strike to its opponent. The weight of the heavy hex nuts on its arms combined with the spinning motion gives the Double Iron Bash move extraordinary power.

Evolving Meltan into Melmetal
The Evolution of the Mythical Pokemon Meltan into Melmetal can only occur in Pokemon GO and requires 400 Meltan Candies. Like Candies that can be collected for other Pokemon, players can obtain Meltan Candies by catching Meltan (after opening a Mystery Box) and sending them to Professor Willow or by walking around with Meltan selected as their Buddy Pokemon. Fans can also obtain Meltan Candies by sending that Pokemon from Pokemon GO to the Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! video games. Fans can have fun exploring the Kanto region with Melmetal once they bring it over from Pokemon GO to Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will be available exclusively on Nintendo Switch on November 16, 2018.
