Recently, Pokemon GO players have spotted a previously unknown Pokemon that looks like a Hex Nut. As it turns out, what they’ve likely been seeing is Ditto that have transformed into this weird Pokemon.

Thanks to Professor Willow and Professor Oak, we now know that the mysterious Pokemon Ditto have been appearing as the Meltan, a mythical Steel Pokemon known to the professors only through descriptions in books. 

The little guy isn’t restricted to Pokemon GO, it seems, as he will be appearing in Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee!.

That said, the alternate reality mobile game is key to meeting Meltan in either of the Nintendo Switch games when they release. Professor Willow will need help from Pokemon GO players to better understand the habits and distribution of the Hex Nut Pokemon.

It’s this research that will aid Pokemon: Let’s Go! players in their quest to meet Meltan once the games launch on the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo’s press release isn’t exactly clear on just how Meltan will make its way into the Pokemon: Let’s Go! games. However, it seems likely that the recent announcement of the Pokemon transfer system that will exist between the two games is what will be used to facilitate this.

In this case, Pokemon GO players would upload a captured Meltan into the GO park system in Pokemon: Let’s Go! Of course, at the moment, this is speculation on my part. So take it as you will.
