Poison/Fire Type Pokémon Salandit Revealed For Pokémon Sun and Moon

Game Freak have recently revealed a brand new Fire/Poison type Pokémon called Salandit.

You can read Salandit’s full bio down below:


lizard

Category: Toxic Lizard Pokémon

Type: Poison/Fire

Height: 2’00”

Weight: 10.6 lbs

Ability: Corrosion

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

Salandit has the Corrosion Ability, a new Ability that no other Pokémon has possessed before. With the Corrosion Ability, it becomes possible to inflict the Poisoned status condition even on Steel- and Poison-type Pokémon.


Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will launch on November 18th, 2016 in North America and November 23rd, 2016 in Europe.

    “Salandit emits toxic gas, together with flames, from the base of its tail”
    Is it asbestos?

    “Salandit females not only release toxic gases, they can also emit
    pheromones that attract males of all species, including Pokémon and
    humans”

    Not surprising with a pokemon with a built-in tramp stamp.

    I see it being used by a politically correct Team Rocket that I’m betting will be G7s gang.

    To make their army of white knights to strike down the tyrannical rule of the racist mysoggeykneed Prof Oak and to enslave every man to do all the work.

    I doubt that has anything to do with it, just a hint at ancient humans and Pokemon being far closer in the evolutionary tree, which they may or may not retcon.

    I could definitely see female Sandlit being like black widows, using their pheromones to lull male enemies into a false sense of security.

    I like it already. The only thing that would make it better would be to make it’s final evolution 7th gen’s Lopunny/Leavanny.>//3//>

    I love it. Poison types have been my favorite since gen 1 and it’s great to see a new type combination.

    Now that steel types can be poisoned, popular favorites like skarmory are going to get fucked hard.

    I doubt it. Team rocket (and evil teams in general) are known for using the most useless pokemon. I swear it’s a wonder I haven’t seen a grunt with a magicarp.
