Pokemon Sun and Moon reveals new Pokemon Turnator

A new Fire- and Dragon-Type Blast Turtle Pokemon.

Pokemon Sun and Moon

The Pokemon Company has unveiled Turnator, a new Fire- and Dragon-Type Pokemon set to appear in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon.

Here is Turnator’s full overview:

Turnator

  • Category: Blast Turtle Pokemon
  • Type: Fire/Dragon
  • Height: 6’07”
  • Weight: 467.4 lbs.
  • Ability: Shell Armor

Because Turtonator lives on volcanoes, feeding on sulfur and other materials found near volcanic craters, its shell has a layer of explosive material—mostly sulfur. When something strikes this Pokemon, sparks fly from the horns on its shell, igniting an explosion!

In areas around volcanic craters, this Pokemon camouflages itself as a rock and waits for prey. At the moment when its prey steps onto the back of its shell, Turtonator strikes its shell with its own tail, triggering an explosion!

The explosive blasts triggered from Turtonator’s back are released through an orifice located on the middle front of the Pokémon’s body. This is Turtonator’s weak point. Attacks landing on its stomach will cause it a great deal of damage.

Shell Trap is a move that only Turtonator is able to learn. With this move, the Pokemon can set a trap at the beginning of the turn, and if Turtonator is hit by an opponent’s physical attack during that turn, Shell Trap triggers an explosion that will deal much greater damage to the opponent.

Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon are due out for 3DS on November 18 in North America and November 23 in Europe.
