A shocking reveal
As promised, the Pokémon Company has released another trailer for Pokémon Scarlet/Violet. In particular, these videos show off some gameplay featuring gym leader Iono and her partner Pokémon, Bellibolt. You can see what the duo has to offer in the videos above and below.
Bellibolt is yet another new Pokémon that you’ll find in the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Bellibolt is an EleFrog Pokémon, and it has a new ability called Electromorphosis. This ability boosts the power of the next Electric-type a Pokémon uses after being hit by an attack.
Bellibolt expands and contracts its elastic body to generate electricity in an organ that looks like a belly button. The huge amount of electricity generated this way is then discharged from the two bumps on either side of its head that resemble eyeballs. Its actual eyes are adorably small and round, so when it tries to be intimidating, it puts the eyelike bumps to good use
It is difficult to train Bellibolt to initiate a battle without it being attacked first. After the sun sets, you can hear strange noises coming from Bellibolt’s habitat. This noise is not Bellibolt’s cries, but a sound emitting from their stomachs–it is known that this sound signals that they are hungry.
