Meltan and Melmetal
(Added terminology I remember hearing before "Mythical" was used in the west.)
m (Meltan and Melmetal)
Meltan can be caught when opening the [[Mystery Box]] in Pokémon GO, which causes many Meltan to spawn around the player for a limited time. Meltan can only evolve into Melmetal in Pokémon GO, requiring 400 Meltan Candies.
Meltan is the only Pokémon, and by extension the only mythicalMythical pokemonPokémon, that is only obtainable in Pokémon GO. Melmetal was once the same, but has since been distributed as a gift in [[Pokémon HOME]] given for transferring Pokémon from GO using the [[HOME Transporter]], this gift is a special Melmetal capable of Gigantamaxing in [[Pokémon Sword and Shield]].
A group of {{OBP|Meltan|recurring}} first appeared in ''[[SM106|Evolving Research!]]''. In ''[[SM112|Got Meltan?]]'', one of them was {{pkmn2|caught}} by {{Ash}}. In ''[[SM138|Final Rivals!]]'', Ash's Meltan evolved into {{AP|Melmetal}} by combining with the other Meltan.
