If you’ve been playing Pokémon Go over the weekend, you may have noticed this little guy:
This unique little creature had never been seen before in the Pokémon world, and fans everywhere were theorizing what it might be. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to find out much right away, since catching the new Pokémon would cause it to transform into a Ditto.
Rumors circled quickly that this was a new undiscovered Pokémon, while many theorized it was a Missingno-like glitch that got put into the game by accident.
After a few days, however, the Pokémon Company finally revealed it as their new mythical Pokémon: Meltan!
This mythical Pokémon is classified as the Hex Nut Pokémon and is revealed to be a Steel-type. Other than a Pokédex-like explanation of its liquid metal body producing electricity, not much is known about the Pokémon or how to obtain it, though it’s likely to be from field research like previous mythical Pokémon in Go. However, it is likely we’ll see it in Pokémon’s upcoming Switch title: Let’s Go! Pikachu and Eevee, set for release on November 16.
