Pokemon Sun and Moon adds the Turtonator

This creature is designed to give 'em shell.


Pokemon Sun and Moon continues to unveil new creatures and details for the upcoming 3DS RPG, and now we get a new one designed to give its opponents shell.

Standing 6'7" and weighing in at a staggering 467.4 pounds, the Turtonator is a fire/dragon type that lives near volcanoes. It disguises itself as a rock, and any creature stepping on the Turtonator's back is surprised when it's tail whips onto its shell, causing a huge explosion.

In game, this Pokemon sets up a Shell Trap the round before, and any attack hitting the shell is causes an explosion that does extra damage to the attacker.

Pokemon Sun and Moon will be released on November 18.
