Meet Bellibolt, the newest Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet
In a new trailer, The Pokémon Company and Nintendo have revealed the mysterious Pokémon teased in a video earlier this week. Their name is Bellibolt, and they are the special partner of Iono, the newest fitness leader from Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
In Wednesday’s first video, Iono introduces himself not only as the fitness leader but also as a streamer. She then asks her fictional followers to guess what her mysterious partner Pokémon is based on a number of details, including its type, the location of its eyes, and the fact that it is “very cute.” If you have trouble guessing, don’t feel bad; Today, we learned that her partner is a brand new Pokémon.
Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have released a series of follow-up tweets, giving us new information about Bellibolt that sounds like it was pulled straight from the Pokédex. One of the images reveals that they have a new ability called “Electromorphosis”, which allows Bellibolt to power up their next electric-type move after being attacked.
You’ll be able to add Bellibolt to your party when Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet arrive to switch on November 18. If you want more content about the previous Pokémon, check out this extended game demo from last weekthe reveal about various new Pokémonor our preview from earlier this year.
