Volcanion, the First Fire-Water Pokemon, is Revealed

Throughout Pokemon’s vast history, their have been many types of Pokemon with very unique and weird types.

Well earlier yesterday, the official Pokemon Channel revealed one of the most unique Pokemon, Volcanion, the first ever Fire-Water type to grace the series.

From the website:

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.

They didn’t specify how Volcanion can actually be caught, but by the sounds of it, it seems that players will only be able to catch it through a special event, which has yet to be announced.

    The folks at Treehouse will rebrand it as a coffee-lover pokemon because children must be isolated from knowing that alcohol exist.

    Benefits from being immune to water due to ability, so truly, ground and electric types are its only enemies.

    I guess it will be a solid UU.

    I’d wait till we get it’s base stats, abilities, and movepool before assigning it to a particular rank if I were you.

    I hate that I immediately think of a pokemons competitive viability. I can’t just enjoy the cool design or the fact that it has a unique type.

    I was only into it for a few months, but the mentality lingers. Competitive pokemon is truly the worst.

    I never used to be ‘that guy’, but I’m really not liking the designs on some of these newer pokemon.

    Call me old fashioned but as a kid I remember finding cool pokemon on my own while actually playing the game and the thought that now Pokemon are just openly revealed like this makes me sad.

    Well, that’s what makes it so fun, now you get to figure out how to play against him.

    It looks pretty potent, and even if the stats aren’t high enough, it can probably be used as a caltrop after status effects.

    A moonshine pokemon.
