A recent CoroCoro magazine leak announced the Volcanion Pokémon, confirming that it would feature in the 2016 movie for the series. The Pokémon Company has now done an official reveal through a video and web page, giving us some details, footage and screens to gawk at.
Volcanion is number 721, for those counting - thanks, Serebii - and based on the official website is definitely set to be distributed in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire next year, with full global distribution details yet to come.
Below, first of all, is the reveal trailer with gameplay footage:
The following description below is from the official website, which confirms Volcanion as a one-of-a-kind Steam Pokémon that combines the Fire and Water types.
A new Mythical Pokémon has been found in the world of Pokémon, which cannot be encountered through regular gameplay. This Pokémon's name is Volcanion!
Unlike any Pokémon discovered before it, this Pokémon is both Fire and Water type. It uses fire and water to create steam within its body, expelling explosive shock waves and boiling steam from the arms on its back. The power is said to be great enough to blow away an entire mountain, gouging out the earth and changing the shape of the land.
Finally there are some official screens below. So, are you excited about Volcanion?
