Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee is now available onSwitch, marking the real debut of the series on Nintendo’s hybrid console. While they are not direct remakes of the classic Pokemon Yellow version, the pair follows its template very closely, with the same setting, story black and the original 151 Pokemon (plus their Alolan variants, which can be acquired either from some NPCs or by transferring them over from Pokemon Go).
Despite its many similarities to Yellow, let’s go Go Pikachu and Eevee present some new elements in the series – especially Meltan, a brand new mythical Pokemon that has not appeared in any previous main line of Pokemon game. The melt is not suitable for a mythical Pokemon, but we have compiled a guide explaining how to add it and its developed form, Melmetal, to your collection.
To start transferring, just talk to the receptionist at Go Park’s reception and follow the on-screen instructions. This is a one-way process; which Pokemon you send from Go to Let’s Go can not be returned to the mobile game. However, you must complete at least one transfer to capture Meltan, as sending a Pokemon to Let’s Go will reward you with a special item in the Go: Mystery Box.
Mystery Box is the key to calling Meltan in Pokemon Go. Once opened, the mysterious Pokemon will begin to appear in nature for a limited time, and you will be able to capture it just as you would any other monster. But you have to act quickly to capture as many as you can. The Mystery Box is only open for 30 minutes, and you have to wait a whole seven days before you can re-enable it by transferring another Pokemon.
While you can only transfer the original 151 Pokemon, Meltan is the only exception. Once you have managed to capture one in Go, you can send it to Let’s Go titles in the same way that you should have Gen 1 Pokemon. You will then be able to recreate it in Go Park to add it to your team.
Currently, this is the only way to get Meltan in either Go or Let’s Go. You will not be able to find it in the wild in the Switch Games, so if you hope to add one to your collection, you will need to link the two titles together. However, The Pokemon Company has plagued that a new Special Research Melting Quest Line will be available to Pokémon Go players sometime this winter, indicating that there will be other ways to acquire it in the future.
The melt is a pure steel type Pokemon that is eight centimeters long, making it one of the smallest monsters in the Pokemon universe. While it may not look particularly scary, it has a remarkable distinction: Meltan is the first mythical Pokemon to evolve, and it can grow into a hollow monster called Melmetal.
As before, Pokemon Go is the key to getting Melmetal. To develop Meltan, you need to feed enough Candy in Go, just like you would develop most other Pokemon in the mobile game. These are acquired every time you receive a Meltan or send one to Professor Willow, but be warned: You must catch a lot of Meltans if you hope to get their development, because the mythical Pokemon requires a huge 400 Candies to develop.
Considering how long it takes to restore Mystery Box, enough Candy collects to develop Meltan is a scary looking picture. Fortunately, if you have filled Rare Candies, you can use them to speed up the process. You can also feed Pinap Berries to Meltan during the capture phase, which increases the number of Candies you get if you manage to catch it. Once you have developed Meltan, you can transfer your Melmetal to the Let’s Go Games and retake it in Go Park.
Melmetal is just like basic form, a pure steel Pokemon. According to the series, it was cultivated in antiquity because of its ability to create metal. It is also capable of learning a whole new move called Double Iron Bash, a two-stroke steel-type attack that can do the opposite of Pokemon flinch.
Although it is more welcoming than other items in the series, Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee are deeper than those initially shown.
