New Poison/Fire Type Pokémon Salandit Revealed for Pokémon Sun and Moon

on July 7, 2016 2:20 PM

Nintendo revealed a new Poison/Fire-type Pokémon named Salandit at the Japan Expo in France.

The following description was given for the Pokémon:

Salandit emits toxic gas, together with flames, from the base of its tail. This poisonous gas has a sweet smell, and anyone who unknowingly breathes it in will become dizzy. Salandit is not a very powerful Pokémon, but its cunning nature allows it to battle fiercely by throwing its opponents off balance.

Salandit females not only release toxic gases, they can also emit pheromones that attract males of all species, including Pokémon and humans. Inhaling these pheromones may cause opponents to be controlled by Salandit’s will.

Salandit has the exclusive ability Corrosion, which allows it to inflict the poison status on both Steel and Poison-type Pokémon, who are normally immune to it.

The reveal trailer was later posted on the official Pokémon YouTube Channel.

Pokémon Sun and Moon releases November 18 for the Nintendo 3DS.
