Meltan (Japanese: メルタン Meltan) is a Steel-type Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation VII in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!.

It evolves into Melmetal after being fed 400 Meltan Candy in Pokémon GO.[1]

Its appearance was first teased during the September Pokémon GO Community Day on September 22, 2018, and it was officially revealed on September 25, 2018.

Biology

Meltan is a small Pokémon with a shiny, silvery body made of liquid metal. Its head is a golden hexagon with a large circular hole in its center, resembling a hexagonal nut. Floating inside the hole is its eye. A red tail extends from its body with two tiny protrusions at the end.

It is a curious and expressive Pokémon. Meltan's liquid arms and legs can corrode and absorb metal into its body, which it uses to generate electricity. Its eye can use this energy to fire an attack against opponents.[2]. Meltan are instinctively drawn towards each in order to combine into Melmetal.

Many Ditto transformed into Meltan have been observed in Pokémon GO, including in Professor Willow's field work. It has also been seen in ancient texts.

Trivia

Origin

Meltan may be based on a hexagonal nut. Its body is based on mercury, a metallic element that is liquid at room temperature. Mercury can also conduct electricity, as well as react with many other metals to form amalgams.

Name origin

Meltan may be a combination of melt, metal, and たん -tan (diminutive Japanese suffix) or possibly tantalum.
