Meltan Special Research tasks add to Let’s Go Kanto event

Shiny Magnemite has also been released!

The newest Kanto event is now live for Pokémon GO, with the headline additions being Shiny Magnemite and a new Special Research task involving Meltan.

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are out now for Nintendo Switch, and there’s plenty to learn about the mysterious Mythical Pokémon Meltan! Professor Willow needs your help tracking down this Steel-type Pokémon with some new Special Research—are you up for the task? You can get started right now!

Plus, in addition to the Special Research, Field Research featuring Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region and not commonly found in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will be available from now until November 27. Make sure to look around you during that time, as Pokémon such as Omanyte and Kabuto may appear in the wild more frequently!

Sounds good to us! There will also be Raid battles featuring the Kanto Eeveelutions from the 23rd to the 26th.

That said, errors have been spotted with the dialogue Professor Willow gives for the Meltan Special Research, which will hopefully be fixed soon.

What do you think about the ability to get a Meltan without needing to access someone’s Pokémon Let’s Go game?
