While Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee and Pikachu are all about those original 151 Pokemon from Gen 1, they still dabble in the more current generation, even serving as the debut for a totally new character. Meltan was teased through Pokemon GO before the launch of Let’s Go, and now that the latter is hear players can actually catch the mythical creature. But the process is kind of complex, so here’s how to get Meltan in Pokemon Let’s Go.
Something to keep in mind with this is that you will need Pokemon GO to get Meltan in Let’s Go. The way it’s done, in short, is that you transfer any Pokemon from GO to Let’s Go (so from mobile to Switch), which gives you a special item that spawns Meltan in GO. Once you have him there you can transfer him back to Let’s Go to have him on the Switch instead. So, that was the short answer. Here’s the long one…

The process is one way, so be sure you know where you want Meltan before you go through all of these steps.
