Mystery POKÉMON Meltan Might Be Able to Evolve

It’s hard to have a genuine mystery in the age of the internet, when seemingly infinite information is available whenever we want it. Pokémon has managed it, though, thanks to the recent introduction of Meltan. The mysterious new creature was first discovered by data miners in Pokémon GO before Nintendo officially unveiled it. By now, we know its name and what it looks like, but really, that’s about it. However, Nintendo has shared a pair of new videos on Wednesday that reveal more about the enigmatic Pokémon.

Most interestingly, it appears that Meltan can only actually be caught in Pokémon GO, according to a press release, as the language suggests that it will have to be transferred from that game to the upcoming Pokémon: Let’s Go games in order to use them in the latter. This would make it the first Pokémon that can be caught only in Pokémon GO. The press release also reveals how players will finally be able to catch Meltan: “The first time players send a Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, they can receive a very special item — a Mystery Box. Once the Mystery Box is opened in Pokémon GO, Meltan will begin to appear in the game, and players can attempt to catch it in the same way as any other Pokémon.”It also looks like Meltan might be able to evolve into something else. Near the end of the video below, there’s a brief shot that shows a silhouette of what appears to be either an evolved form of Meltan or multiple Meltans fused together, followed by a title card that reads, “I think Meltan still holds a greater secret to be uncovered.”
What do you think the next Meltan secret is? Does it actually have an evolved form, or can multiple Meltans fuse into something greater, or is there something else afoot that I’m not thinking of? Share your speculations down in the comments below!
