Pokemon Sun & Moon New Pokemon

A new Pokemon has been revealed for Sun & Moon at Japan Expo by Junichi Masuda. Meet Salandit! The Toxic Lizard Pokemon. This Pokemon is the first Poison/Fire type to the series, it also comes with the new ability 'Corrosion'. This ability lets Salandit poison any type of Pokemon including Poison and Steel, which are both naturally immune to this status ailment.

In looks, Salandit has a bandit appearance as its name suggests. It appears to have a mask over its head that has two extrusions from the base of its neck. This gives the appearance that it is tied on. It also has the appearance of gloves on all its feet.  From part way up its back to the tip of its tail, it has a red symbol that may link to its fire typing.

The official site states.

'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 Pokemon, 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 Pokemon and humans. Inhaling these pheromones may cause opponents to be controlled by Salandit's will.'

A trailer was shown for this Pokemon. Showcasing its new ability on a Zubat and Skarmory. It also uses two fire based moves on Komala and Rockruff but it is not clear what they are.

Keep checking back for more Pokemon Sun & Moon news as it comes!!
