Last month Pokémon GO players began encountering a mysterious new creature which was later revealed as the Mythical Pokémon Meltan. The early sightings all turned out to be Ditto in disguise. But the real thing is on the way to Pokémon GO, and you’ll be able to bring it to the upcoming Pokémon: Let’s Go games as well.
There’s still much we don’t know about this strange new being, but today we got lots of new info in the form of two new videos! The first is another conversation between the two professors, Willow and Oak, that introduces the Mystery Box. This strange item was found at the same location as the ancient text talking about Meltan, and when opened, it summons many Meltan.
Acquiring the Mystery Box will require you to participate in Special Research quests coming to Pokémon GO this Winter. You’ll also need to transfer at least one Pokémon from the mobile game to the upcoming Let’s Go games to unlock it. It only stays open for a short amount of time, and then you’ll have to wait (and transfer another monster) to open it again later.
The second trailer features someone writing down notes about Meltan as many of them spawn throughout their house. Most of it is information we already knew, but the trailer ends with an ominous shadow that seems to be hinting at a new form for Meltan. You can check them both out below!
