New Pokémon Volcanion Officially Revealed

Dec 14, 2015

Pokémon's official YouTube channel has revealed the 721st Pokémon and its name is, Volcanion!

Volcanion is the first Pokémon to be both a fire type and a water type. Volcanion combines "fire and water to create steam within its body, expelling explosive shock waves and boiling steam from the arms on its back".

Volcanion will be vulnerable to rock, ground and electric attacks but can lay heavy damage against steel, ice and bug type Pokémon.

His special ability is the water absorb which makes attacks against him ineffective while also restoring 25% of players HP. Other special moves of Volcanion's include scald, weather ball and eruption!

It has been said that Volcanion can not be confronted through regular gameplay. So how players interact with him exactly is still unknown. The reveal trailer does say that more information is coming soon though!
