New Mythical Pokémon, Volcanion, discovered, and latest movie set to premiere on Cartoon Network
The Pokémon Company International today was excited to announce that a new Mythical Pokémon known as Volcanion has been discovered in Pokémon Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X, and Y. This mighty beast cannot be found during normal gameplay and, unlike any other known Pokémon, is actually both Fire and Water type.
Volcanion utilizes fire and water to create steam within its body, then expels explosive shock waves and scalding steam from the arms on its back. It is rumored that this Pokémon’s power is so great that it can destroy an entire mountain, gouging out the earth and changing the shape of the land itself.
See Volcanion in the new trailer, shared below:
In addition to revealing this mighty beast, they were happy to announce that the latest Pokémon movie, Pokémon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages, is set to premiere on Cartoon Network at 6:00PM Eastern on Saturday, December 19, 2015. Check out the new trailer below:
