Nutto, as we used to call him, is actually Meltan a new mythical Pokemon that Oak has seen in an ancient text he once read. Information about Meltan is still sparse, as Professor Willow announces that more field research is in order, which clearly hints at new Pokemon GO quest chain coming:
“Research is being conducted on these appearances of Meltan, but we have learned that Pokémon GO is somehow key to meeting this curious new Pokémon in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! We’ll be sure to provide updates as we discover more!”
More information about Meltan is available on the Pokemon Let’s GO website:
- Name: Meltan
- Category: Hex Nut Pokémon
- Type: Steel
- Height: 0’08”
- Weight: 17.6 lbs.
- Number: ???
Most of Meltan’s body is made from liquid metal, and its shape is very fluid. It can use its liquid arms and legs to corrode metal and absorb it into its own body. Meltan generates electricity using the metal it absorbs from outside sources. It uses this electricity as an energy source and also as an attack that can be fired from its eye. Clearly a curious Pokémon, Meltan is very expressive and shows an interest in all kinds of things.
