The mystery of the nut Pokemon appears to have been solved! What are your thoughts on it?

Well, it’s seeming much less like an accidental reveal by Niantic now. It wouldn’t be feasible for them to prepare all those videos just because Niantic apparently accidentally made them available.

Also, it’s cute! Can’t wait to see what Meltan is like in Let’s Go AND GO.

I love it! Happy to see that it turned out to be a mythical Pokemon and especially happy that it is Steel typed. Gonna be really interesting to see what role it has in the upcoming games and why it was chosen of all Pokemon to be put in.

First of all, why couldn't the games have graphics like in that video? <3

Secondly, that artwork of Meltan is super cute! It's definitely growing on me!

I like Meltan and its simple, endearing design, but it's Mythical so I'm meh on it.

    Metlan is basically Unown's eye stuck in a lug nut attached to Ditto's body.

    I mean, I think it looks okay. Doesn't really get me anymore excited for Let's Go though. And adding to the fact that's it's a mythical and will problably require connection to the mobile game doesn't really help.

    But it is our first Gen 8 reveal!

    Considering the current gen threw us new mons in the middle of it, this being a Gen 8 mon may not be a possibility, but instead just be another one of the Gen 7 folk. However, there's nothing that tells us what generation this is going to end up in.

    It has red tail! Not my favourite design and it'll probably be as relevant to Gen VII as Magearna was to Gen VII.

    But that trailer was nice. I wonder why Dittos suddenly started transforming in it.

      I like this Pokemon, but "liquid metal" sounds like mercury, so I'm sad this Pokemon isn't Steel/Poison. :( It's cute, though, I want one.

      Reminds me of Unknown quite a bit. Hopefully it'll have some kind of back story in the games at some point.

        The leak was obviously intentional when Ditto transformed into it in Pokémon GO.

        I am still waiting to see what's the link between Meltan and Ditto??? Especially that it seems to be unable to Transform... is it some what their ancestor? The mass Transformation into Meltan being a sign of allegiance and worshipping?
        All that comes to my mind right now is that wild Ditto sometimes happen to hold Metal Powder (METAL), an Item that increases Ditto's Defense. This useless item has always been a mystery to me. Not anymore I guess...

            NOPE, nope, nope, no, no, no

            I always defend the misunderstood and weird Pokémon from new generations, but this is too much for me, they went too far, sorry guys, but this new Pokémon is just stupid.

            I wonder why they decided to release THIS with LGP/LGE, it's the most unappealing design possible for Gen 1 fans.

            Curious to see what the explanation is for Dittos turning into it (assuming this was all intentional) and what the lore behind it is.

            If it'll have any anyway....the games don't go into the lore of non-box/non-mascot legendaries as much as they used to.

            When I saw it, the "eye" was making me think of something, but I couldn't put my finger on what exactly. But now that you mention it, that's what I was thinking of =)

            idk, it's ok to me; it even has kind of a cuteness factor to it! I honestly don't mind it.

            Not sure if I would have caught this thing in the wild, and I would never have guessed that this was a mythical pokemon. It looks more like it could be an evolution of unown or roggenrola. But maybe it will grow on me...

            Boring. More mythical stuff. And man, is that a lame design.

            Did they have a design-a-Pokemon contest at an elementary school?

              I finally have enough signal to actually see this design after days of knowing about it’s existence. I think it’s super cute, the only thing I don’t like about it is the tail but I can live with it.

                The whole design is questionable, but yeah, the tail is the most irrelevant part!
                I think they were trying their best to make it look different than Ditto... but they kinda did it in abad way...
                No matter what, I personally can't wait to see Meltan's upcoming movie to know more about this Pokémon. Although I have a feeling I'll be disappointed.

                  I don't know about the rest of you all, but this Pokemon really does excite me. I think it's a combination of the fact that it's a Steel type (one of my two favorite types) and the fact that they're referencing it being mentioned in ancient texts, and my whole in-universe persona is a researcher of the Pokemon world's ancient civilizations. You can be sure that Elias Dorlcate's gonna be doing a lot of his own research on this Pokemon!
