At todays Gamescom a new Pokémon was revealed: Turtonator.

Turtonator is a Fire/Dragon type and has the ability Shell Armor and a nre move called Shell Trap. This new move will cause the opponent to get hit ny an explosion of damage if Turtonator is hit in the same turn.
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 Pokémon, sparks fly from the horns on its shell, igniting an explosion!

In areas around volcanic craters, this Pokémon 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 Pokémon 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.


Here's the gameplay of the Battle Royal that they showed at the Gamescom

Haha I love this Pokémon XD
Too bad it won't get to use shell trap that often since tortoises usually aren't that fast
Or maybe the move will be like protect that always goes first, but doesn't protect you from damage.
Anyway, I'm excited for this Pokémon! Does anybody think this might be Alola's pseudo-legendary?

Uhm.. I don't think that he will be the pseudo-legendary... I think that we will find the pseudo-legendary only after the release of the game :yesyes:

We have the 3 Bowser Brothers XD Carracosta, Chesnaught and Turtonator XDD (Bowser Bros will shortly be available in your country! XDDD)
I think they specifically call chesnaught and tortunator Bowser because of the spiky shells. So Carracosta might not be considered a Pokémon that resembled Bowser

He can always be Bowser Jr. :yeahyeah: he don't have those spiky shells :yesyes: (or anyway are really small) so... Chesnaught and Tortunator will be Bowser Bros and Carracosta Bowser Jr asd

I've never thought of Carracosta as a Bowser Pokémon since he's literally a Sea Turtle.

Apparently everyone's on to this Terminator meme because its name kinda sounds like it, but surprisingly, some people don't know its actually tortoise + Detonator
