Hmph! I am quite disappointed, at least I was expecting it.
Competitively, it sounds like an improved version of Registeel. I wonder what its ability will be, Clear Body would be an easy guess. Maybe a signature ability shared with Meltan? Oh wait, it could be Iron Fists... Hmm...
It'll be a while before we find out. No Abilities in LGPE!
Haha. I guess I can't get any closer with my guess than that. I had a feeling all the Meltan coming together was a reference to the number of candies that would be needed. As well as being similar to Beldum. But that part was kinda obvious.
I guess this is the only evolution it has since they said that was the end of research. So this is officially a Generation 7 pokemon as well it seems.
I love how it looks like a Mechanical Regi. It also reminds me a lot of Wrecking Ball from Ben 10 saga.
