After the weekend's drama of uncovering an apparent new Pokemon in the update data for Pokemon Go, followed by said new Pokemon appearing after the Chikorita Community Day for capture (albeit with it immediately turning into a Ditto afterwards), The Pokemon Company International has officially revealed the Pokemon as Meltan.


Initially teased by the above tweet, shortly before the announcement, Meltan was revealed this afternoon in a video showing Professor Willow from Pokemon Go and Professor Oak discussing the new Pokemon and its mysterious appearance over the weekend:


Meltan is a new Mythical Pokémon, and its' details are as following:

Name: Meltan

As previously announced, when Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee come out in November, as well as featuring the original 151 Pokemon, a brand new, Generation 8, Pokemon will also be available in the game, and as such, available to transfer into Pokemon Go as well.

Hey guys! If you've been following our live streams on Twitch and Youtube in the past few months you may have been wondering about our couple weeks break from the regular schedule after Worlds. If you're one of the regulars who've been dropping by every week, the bad news is that we're going to be cutting back on the streams to focus on doing just one main stream every week, rather than repeating the format across the entire weekend.

The good news is that in the meantime, while we work out the logistics of how best to manage that, we have some other new video content for you!

You may be aware of our sister site GameCrash - well, now we're branching out to also include a regular series of Let's Play videos. @Teapot and myself have kicked things off with a few episodes of us playing Two Point Hospital, which came out just a couple weeks ago.
