During Gamescom, The Pokémon Company revealed a brand new Pokémon for Pokémon Sun & Moon, Turtonator!
Turtonator is a Fire/Dragon-type Pokémon with the ability Shell Armor.
These Pokémon tend to live on volcanoes where they feast on sulfur. Turtonator’s shell has a layer of explosive material; when it is struck in battle its shell will ignite and explode as a result.
To catch prey, Turtonator will disguise itself as a rock and wait for Pokémon to walk on its shell. It will then strike its own shell with its tail and cause an explosion! These explosions are released through the orifice on Turtonator’s chest. This is however its weak point and attacking it will cause major damage.
Turtonator has a unique move called Shell Trap. This move allows Turtonator to set a trap at the being of a turn. If it is then attacked by a physical move, Shell Trap will trigger an explosion, dealing great damage to the opponent.
Pokémon Sun & Moon launch for Nintendo 3DS on November 18th in North America and November 23rd in Europe.
