After Professor Willow has caught a lot of Meltan and updates Professor Oak on the new information he has discovered, the two professors notice that Meltan has transformed. Oak informs Willow that the Meltan have evolved into Melmetal, so Willow sends Melmetal to Oak's Laboratory, despite the fact that Oak tells him that the lab is not yet ready to receive it. Oak receives Melmetal, before Willow notices a stray Meltan and wonders if there are more amazing Pokémon like Meltan that are left to be discovered.

Trivia

  • In a first for core series promotional videos, the voice acting in these shorts is fully translated into English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Korean, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
    • The voice acting is also fully translated into Dutch and Portuguese, despite the core series not being released in those languages.
    • Strangely, the Pokémon Hong Kong channel features the videos with full translated voice acting (in Mandarin for the Simplified Chinese version and Cantonese for the Traditional Chinese version), but the Pokémon Taiwan channel features the Traditional Chinese version but with voice acting still in the original Japanese.
