An Alola original.
'Pokémon Go' might be on the minds of gamers right now, but Nintendo is still gearing up to release the next handheld game in the series later this year. To hype up the Nintendo 3DS exclusive 'Pokémon Sun' and 'Pokémon Moon,' Game Freak's Junichi Masuda and Shigeru Ohmori unveiled a new pocket monster at Gamescom 2016. The latest creature is a mixture between a turtle and a volcano called Turtonator.
The six feet tall Turtonator is exclusive to the Alola region that the new games take place on, and camouflages itself as a part of the volcanoes it lives by. The 467-pound behemoth has an explosive shell that it uses to attack foes, and uses this to unleash its special move called Shell Trap.
Check out the move in action by watching Turtonator's reveal trailer:
'Pokémon Sun' and 'Pokémon Moon' releases November 18th in North America and November 23rd in Europe exclusively on Nintendo 3DS.
