Pokemon Go: How To Get Meltan And Melmetal
Meltan is one of the most challenging Pokemon to evolve in Pokemon Go. Not only is the cost extremely high (400 candy), but getting those candies is harder than almost any other monster in the game. Being so difficult to attain makes Melmetal that much more appealing.
Getting your hands on Meltan itself is also a challenge, as you'll need to obtain a Mystery Box for the Pokemon to spawn at all. But fear not, as we'll outline every step you need to take to catch this Pokemon and gather the candy you need to evolve it into the powerful Melmetal.
Updated March 2023 by Rebecca Phillips: Melmetal is still a rather difficult Pokemon to get hold of in Pokemon Go. There are a few methods you can use to add this Pokemon to your team, however, so we'll outline them all here for you. It still requires collecting all 400 of those candies, but don't worry — there are ways to make this less of a hassle.
After capturing 100 Pokemon in the Kanto Pokedex, you'll unlock the Let's Go, Metal Special Research tasks. Once you complete eight sets of tasks, you'll be rewarded with an encounter with Meltan. You'll also obtain Meltan candy to use for evolving the Pokemon into Melmetal.
Meltan and Melmetal are very rare Pokemon, and achieving the goal of adding them to your collection can take a very, very long time.
