Turtonator Is the Newest Pokémon Announced for Pokémon Sun and Moon

August 18th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

The Official Pokémon Channel on YouTube released a new trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon introducing everyone to Turtonator, who might possibly rival Geodude for the title of “Most 90s Sounding Name.”

The Blast Turtle Pokémon is a Fire- and Dragon-type that has the ability Shell Armor, which prevents it from receiving critical hits. Its unique Shell Trap move allows it to lay a trap at the beginning of a turn. If hit with a physical attack during that turn, Turtonator will counter with a hard-hitting explosion.

Last week, several new pokémon were unveiled, along with Sun and Moon‘s bad guys, Team Skull.
