More information about the new Pokémon:

Name: Turtonator
Category: Blast Turtle Pokémon
Type: Fire/Dragon
Height: 6’07”
Weight: 467.4 lbs.
Ability: Shell Armor

The Blast Turtle Pokémon Turtonator lives around volcanoes and camouflages itself as a rock to wait for its prey. This Pokémon feeds on sulfur and other materials found near volcanic craters, and as a result its shell is covered in a layer of explosive material. During battle, when something strikes Turtonator, sparks fly from the horns on its shell, igniting this layer and causing an explosion.

Turtonator can learn the exclusive move Shell Trap. With this move, the Pokémon lays a trap for the opponent at the start of the turn. If Turtonator is hit by an opponent’s physical attack during that turn, the trap triggers an explosion resulting in huge damage to the opponent.
