A few days ago Pokémon GO players began encountering a mysterious new creature with a gelatinous body and an industrial nut for a head with a single eye. Upon capturing it the unknown monster, it would immediately transform into a Ditto. What's going on here? We now have our answer!

The Pokémon Company has just released a new video to clarify the situation. The video sees Professor Willow on a call with Professor Oak as the two try to identify the strange new Pokémon, when suddenly Oak remembers seeing it before in an ancient text. As it turns out, Ditto was attempting to transform into the ancient and mythical Pokémon Meltan!

We have few details about Meltan at this time, but no doubt they'll be trickling out in the coming weeks as Niantic and The Pokémon Company capitalize on all the buzz that's been generated. In the meantime, you can watch the reveal trailer above!
