Today saw Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda and Shigeru Ohmori take to the stage at Gamescom to reveal a new Pokemon for Sun and Moon. The Pokemon, named Turtonator, is a Fire/Ghost type that stands at an impressive 6 foot 7 inches and come with a pretty overpowered move.
“Turtonator can learn the exclusive move Shell Trap. With this move, the Pokémon lays a trap for the opponent at the start of the turn. If Turtonator is hit by an opponent’s physical attack during that turn, the trap triggers an explosion resulting in huge damage to the opponent.”
The description of the Pokemon is as follows.
“The Blast Turtle Pokémon Turtonator lives around volcanoes and camouflages itself as a rock to wait for its prey. This Pokémon feeds on sulfur and other materials found near volcanic craters, and as a result its shell is covered in a layer of explosive material. During battle, when something strikes Turtonator, sparks fly from the horns on its shell, igniting this layer and causing an explosion.”
Turtonator will available as one of the new Alola Pokemon, along with the other Pokemon that have been revealed. Will you be grabbing Sun and Moon when they release on November 23rd? Let us know in the comments below!
