Tips for completing the quest "Let's go, Meltan!"
- "Let's go, Meltan!" It's the hardest Special Research in the game so far, as most of the steps involve capturing or evolving specific Pokemon. In addition to searching the wild and raiding, it's important that you know which Pokémon can be found as Field Research rewards, and in which quests to find them. For that, check out our updated list of Field Research quests in Pokémon GO!
- Drowzee, scythera, magnemite egrinmerdeserve special attention in the Candy farm, as it will be necessary to evolve them all. Be sure to give Fruta Caxi at the time of capture.
- The task of capturing a Ditto (3/9) is also difficult. For help, check out our updated guide on how to catch a Ditto in Pokémon GO. Know right away that the quest will only be completed if you capture Ditto while at this stage. Capturing it before opening the quest will not work.
