Another brand new Pokemon has been revealed today at Gamescon, the explosive Turtonator, a Fire/Dragon type Pokemon that resembles an armoured turtle with a spiked shell patterned like and explosion and a long cannon-like mouth.
Because Turtonator lives in volcanoes, feeding on sulfur and other materials found near volcanoes, it's shell has a layer of explosive material - mostly sulfur. When something strikes the Pokemon, sparks fly from 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 blast triggered from Turtonators back are released through an orifice located on the middle front of the Pokemon's body. This is Turtonators weak point. Attacks landing on its stomach will cause it a great deal of damage.
It's ability, 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 opponents 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 for release this November.
