The last Community Day on September 22nd, the event featured the second generation grass-type starter Pokémon, Chikorita. To many trainers’ surprise, a mysterious Pokémon started appearing in the wild with no CP, name or type. Once you captured this mysterious Pokémon, it turned into a Ditto.

This led many trainers wondering what was it and why would it transformed to a  Ditto. Three days later a communication between Dr. Willow and Dr. Oak from Pallet Town was intercepted where both discussed what could this strange Pokémon be. Dr. Oak remembered of an ancient text he read that fitted the description of this Pokémon and identified it as the Mythical Pokémon Meltan.

 

“A mysterious Pokémon suddenly began appearing all over the world in recent days. Have you spotted it yet? Ditto all over the world have been transforming into this Pokémon, which has now been identified as the Mythical Pokémon Meltan! It seems that Professor Willow has already contacted Professor Oak in the Kanto region, and the two have been cooperating in their investigation of Meltan! Please check the Pokémon YouTube channel for more on their efforts! Sightings of Ditto that have transformed into Meltan are still being reported. If you haven’t encountered one, it’s time to get out there and GO!”
