The latest trailer for Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! & Let's Go, Eevee! has been released. This trailer features more about Meltan showcasing that Meltan is received exclusively through a special Mystery Box. The Mystery Box is obtained when you send a Pokémon from GO to Let's Go. From there, Meltan will start to appear in GO and can be captured for a limited time, around 30 minutes. When the time is up, the Mystery Box is closed and you need to send another Pokémon to Let's Go to get another after a set amount of time. You can then send it to Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee. Meltan will feature in Special Research missions this Winter in Pokémon GO. At present it's not clear if that Special Research is exclusive to players who have connected to Let's Go
It also showcases a possible new form or even evolution of Meltan in the second trailer

Nintendo UK have released a brand new trailer for Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! & Let's Go, Eevee! This trailer doesn't show too much new content in terms of information but does showcase various locales and scenes that haven't been seen before and also includes the first video showcase of the customisation you can do with the character at the start of the game with skintones. Also in addition to this, the first details have come out from a media tour game director Junichi Masuda held in Frankfurt Germany and in New York. Not much new information was revealed here, but to Polygon, Masuda mentioned that the post-game contains various Master Trainers, some really powerful trainers that you will have to power up your Pokémon to defeat. Finally the Spanish site, Vandal, elaborates on this further and states that there are 151 Master Trainers, one for each of the original Pokémon. Each of these will focus on the species of Pokémon at a high level so you have to defeat them all. So if you find the Squirtle Master Trainer, you will defeat him and gain the title

The previously announced stat alteration in Pokémon GO has begun. From now, all of your Pokémon will be displaying new CP values and often have different Hit Points meaning some Pokémon you have will require potions.
