Pokémon Sun and Moon are now just three months away, which is actually quite close in the world of extended 'mon hype building. A little more of the game was shown off at Gamescom, which is currently overcrowding an expo venue in Germany, and the key reveal was a new Pokémon.

This one is called Turtonator, which uses its shell a lot and, we hope, spouts famous Arnie lines from the Terminator movies.


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.

Do you like the look of this new Pokémon? Do you think it should look more like Arnold Schwarzenegger? Let us know in the comments.
