Pokemon Alpha Sapphire

Following CoroCoro’s coverage, the Mythical Pokemon Volcanion has been officially revealed. The creature was shown in a new trailer today, which you can watch below.

Here’s an official overview of Volcanion:

“Unlike any Pokémon discovered before it, this Pokémon is both Fire and Water type. It uses fire and water to create steam within its body, expelling explosive shock waves and boiling steam from the arms on its back. The power is said to be great enough to blow away an entire mountain, gouging out the earth and changing the shape of the land.”

Volcanion can’t be encountered through regular gameplay. We’ll be hearing more about the Pokemon soon.

The distribution will allow fans to gain this special Level 50 Pokémon, which cannot be found during normal gameplay. Fans will need to have a copy of Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, and a system from the Nintendo 3DS family. Mythical Hoopa has the Magician Ability and is recognized by its two horns and the golden ring that adorns its body. The ring allows it to bend dimensions and move objects across great distances.
