In a new trailer, The Pokémon Company and Nintendo unveil mystery Pokémon teased in a video earlier this week, His name is Beliebolt, and he is the signature partner of Iono, the latest gym leader from Pokémon Scarlett and Violet.
In Wednesday’s opening video, Iono introduced himself as not just a gym leader but a streamer. He then asked his imaginary followers to guess what his secret fellow Pokémon was based on a handful of details, including his type, the location of his eyes, and the fact that it was “so cute.” Don’t feel bad if you had trouble guessing; Today, we learned that his companion is an entirely new Pokémon.
Nintendo and The Pokémon Company released a series of follow-up tweets, giving us new information about Belibolt, which looks like it was pulled from the Pokédex. One of the images shows that he has a new ability called “Electromorphosis,” which allows Beliebolt to power his next electric-type move after being hit by an attack.
You’ll be able to add Belybolt to your team when Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet come to Switch on November 18. If you want more Pokémon content before that, Check out this extended gameplay demo from last weekThe Various new Pokémon revealedeither Our preview from earlier this year,
