The Pokémon Company has shared two brand new videos giving us a greater look at Meltan, the recently discovered mythical Pokémon set to appear in Pokémon GO and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!.
As you can see in the trailer above, Professors Willow and Oak discuss the new Pokémon, revealing that a Mystery Box is needed to capture one for yourself. You can get your own Mystery Box by sending Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! on Switch. We already knew that sending creatures over to the Switch games could get you candy and other items, but we now know that a Mystery Box will also be received "the first time you send a Pokémon" over.
The official Pokémon website gives us a little more information on how this item will work in the games:
The Mystery Box closes itself after it's used once. The only way to open it again is to wait a set amount of time, and then send another Pokémon to Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! You can also get a Mystery Box for sending Pokémon to a friend's Nintendo Switch game, but you can only have one Mystery Box at a time!
Meltan will begin to appear once a Mystery Box is opened in Pokémon GO, but be careful—they'll only appear for the player that opened the Mystery Box. Touch a Meltan you see on the field map, and then try to catch it with a Poké Ball!
From there, you can then bring the Meltan you catch into the Let's Go games on Switch, where it can follow you around during your adventure just like any other monster. Even if you don't catch Meltan in Pokémon GO yourself, you can ask a friend to send one that they've caught instead.
Another trailer reveals that Meltan is the most adorable little thing ever to exist, as well as giving us a tease at an evolved form. Take a look.
