RUMOR: Meltan To Play Key Role In Pokemon Sword & Shield?

Along with the Armored Evolution Rumors that have now surfaced, there has also been speculation that the newest Mythical Pokemon, Meltan, will also play a key role within Pokemon Sword & Shield. If you didn't already know, Meltan and Melmetal (Meltan's Evolution) were the only new Pokemon that were introduced within Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Pokemon Let's Go Eevee. Meltan is special in the fact that it's the only Mythical Pokemon that has the ability to evolve, having been the bridge between Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Pokemon Let's Go Eevee and Pokemon GO since you needed both games to ultimately capture Meltan and evolve it into Melmetal.

Unforunately, Meltan didn't play that big of role as a whole in Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Pokemon Let's Go Eevee. And, because of this, many fans believe it could have some sort of storyline in Pokemon Sword & Shield. Both Meltan and Melmetal just so happen to be Steel Type Pokemon, which would play into the theme of the games quite nicely, especially if the Galar Region is as industrial as the creators of the franchise have made it sound. Of course, a storyline would also allow players their only way to obtain Meltan in Pokemon Sword & Shield, or at least something to do with the Meltan they will eventually obtain through some Pokemon Event.

This has yet to be confirmed by the Pokemon Company, however, but you will hear it here first should it be! And don't forget to check out our Pokemon Sword & Shield Walkthrough Guide to stay up to date with all the Pre-Release Spoilers & Rumors for the games!
