With the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon looming ever closer, Nintendo are continuing to shovel coal into the hype train; this time using the spotlight of Gamescom to reveal a new addition to the ever expanding Pokédex!
This, ladies and gentlemen, is Turtonator! A crotchety ass old turtle, defended by a hulking steel shell and armed with all manner of laser beams!
But for serious, this peculiar looking devil is a Fire / Dragon type and rocks a unique move and ability.
Shell Armor is the ability, and it’s pretty self explanatory. Basically expect high defense. The move though, well, that’s way more interesting. Shell Trap is kind of like Bide times a million! It initially sets up like a trap, goading your opponent to hit you with a psychical attack; upon which they pay the price by receiving massive damage!
Will Turtonator be a decent contender or a fun novelty? We’ll find out when Pokémon Sun and Moon release on November 18 in North America and November 23 in Europe.
