After months of rumours, supposed leaks and hype for a Galarian Slowking, we finally have a release date for The Crown Tundra DLC for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield and information on two Pokémon that can be discovered in the new region. Therefore, welcome back to “Who’s That Pokémon?” and this time, we’re tackling the Hex Nut Pokémon, Gigantamax Melmetal:
Pokémon: Gigantamax Melmetal (The Crown Tundra)
Classification: Hex Nut Pokémon
Weight: ????.? lbs.
Ability: Iron Fist
Description: Melmetal can use its flexible and elastic liquid-metal body to land punches even when opponents keep their distance. What’s more, it can pack an even bigger punch by bringing the hex nuts in its arms together to make gigantic fists!
Melmetal can generate electricity using the flow of liquid metal in its body. That electricity charges up particles that Melmetal then fires from the hole in the hex nut in its abdomen. The resulting electric beam is powerful enough to vaporize an entire hill.
G-Max Move (G-Max Rapid Flow): Steel-type attacks used by Gigantamax Melmetal will change to G-Max Meltdown. G-Max Meltdown is a superpowerful move that slams opponents with shock waves and swirling liquid metal. This move doesn’t only deal damage to opponents—it also prevents them from using the same move consecutively!
