"How to get Meltan - Oct. 10, 2018 Update" on this site informs us that for Meltan to appear one needs a Mystery Box, which is only obtainable from Let's Go. So for the time being only Let's Go players will be able to catch Meltan, correct? But there will also be a Special Research quest for Meltan this winter. Meaning that from December(?) on all players will be able to get one Meltan?
hoping there will be spcial resurche for meltan i really want him in case (just in case 99% sure its not going to happen) that metagross would get meteor mash as fast move wouldnt get meteor mash or meteor mash would suck metlan is full metal mytical so good stats so i Always have a defensive metal type attacker and attacking of cours
I suspect that anyone who gets the "Let's Go" games will be very popular, because from what I read, anyone can transfer a pokemon to the game (with cooperation from the game owner) and get the box. I anticipate our local raid group figuring out how to set this up so everyone in town can give a "Let's Go" player a gift/transfer/whatever is needed, and get our boxes.
