Melmetal (Pokémon)

75 bytes added, 7 April
Melmetal has similar design aesthetics to its pre-evolution, Meltan. Its head and features are based on hexagonal {{wp|Nut (hardware)|nuts}},<ref>Melmetal's [[Pokémon Sword and Shield|Shield]] [[Pokédex]] entry</ref> and its tail resembles an exposed wire. Its body is based on {{wp|Mercury (element)|mercury}}, a metallic element that is liquid at room temperature. Mercury can also conduct electricity, as well as react with many other metals to form {{wp|Amalgam (chemistry)|amalgams}}. Its Gigantamax form may have been based on the Greek myth on cyclopean giants.
Melmetal's [[Gigantamax]] form may have been based on the {{wp|Cyclopes}}.
