Pokemon Go has been a popular game ever since its debut back in 2016 on the 6th of July. There have been many new Pokemon being added into the game since that date, increasing the number of the available Pokemon from the initial 150 to over 370.

A few weeks ago, Nintendo followed the tradition and added another Pokemon named Meltan into the list. However, this time the new Pokemon has proven to be quite a hassle for us trainers to catch. As a result, the number of people that have successfully captured it is quite small. Perhaps that is why Nintendo has decided to show us a clearer path to catch the Meltans in the latter part of this winter.

Meltan in the new Pokemon games on Switch

A video series that is available on the official website Pokemon Let’s Go has Professor Oak of the region of Kanto and Professor Willow of Pokemon GO join hand and reveal the new addition for the Pokemon lineup of Pokemon GO. In the videos, Meltan was described as only catchable with the Mystery Box that the users can obtain through doing Pokemon trades between the Switch’s upcoming Pokemon games and Pokemon GO.

However, it’s not all there is, as there will be Special Research missions coming to the Pokemon GO game in this winter that will allow the users to catch Meltan if they have participated in a specific number of investigations beside Professor Willow.

Furthermore, Game Freak and Nintendo have just joined hand in releasing another video which suggests that Meltan will have one or more evolutions. This evolution is suggested to be connected to having multiple Meltan caught. However, there is still no concrete evidence as there is only a shadowy figure being shown.

The two new Pokemon games, which are named “Let’s Go, Eevee!” and “Let’s Go, Pikachu”, have been scheduled to arrive at the Switch on the 16th of November, 2018. They also come with a controller that is just like a Poke Ball type Plus packing a Mew. In addition, there is also a console bundle special edition that has an Eevee and Pikachu themed dock and a Joy-Con.
