The Pokémon Company Introduces Five New Species


Pokémon Sun / Moon

The Pokémon Company recently revealed details about another five new Pokémon species that will appear in the upcoming Pokémon Sun & Moon games. The first Pokémon, unveiled during Gamescom in Cologne, is Turtonator the Fire/Dragon-type Blast Turtle Pokémon. It lives around volancoes and disguises itself as a rock, with the outer layer of its shell coated in explosive material. Turtonator learns the move Shell Trap. This goes at the start of the turn, and if Turtonator is hit by a physical attack in that turn, the trap is triggered, causing massive damage to its opponent.

The other four new Pokémon were revealed at the recent Pokémon World Championships. First of this batch is the Fighting-type Crabrawler, which can be found clinging to buildings. This competitive creature uses its pincers to punch. Next up is Stufful. Although small and cute, the Normal/Fighting-type dislikes being touched and has lots of stength. It evolves into the previously revealed Bewear.

The final pair begins with Sandygast, a Ghost/Ground-type. It emerges from the sand to suck sustinence from people and Pokémon, and has the new Water Compaction Ability that sees its defence rise by two every time it is hit by a Water-type move. Sandyghast evolves into Palossand, another Ghost/Ground-type. It has a spade on its head, that it is believed acts as radar, and sucks small Pokémon through its body to drain their life force.

To go with the new species announcements, The Pokémon Company released two new videos showing them in action. Pokémon Sun & Moon are due out for Nintendo 3DS in North America on November 19, 2016, and in Europe on November 23, 2016.
