Another new Pokemon from Sun and Moon has been revealed, and this time it's a hybrid of Poison and Fire. Salandit is a toxic lizard that can poison any type of Pokemon, including those that are otherwise immune to the status effect.

The official Pokemon YouTube channel posted a video showing off Salandit's ability to ignore poison immunity. It also showed the toxic lizard shooting fire at two new Pokemon that were quietly revealed last month: Komala the koala and Rockruff the puppy. Check it out above.

Other Pokemon revealed for the upcoming Sun and Moon include its starters: Popplio, Litten, and Rowlett. The new games also come with two new legendaries, Solgaleo and Lunala. And of course we've seen a bunch of others, such as Pikipek, Grubbin, Magearna, and Yungoos. There's even a new Pokemon that looks like some kind of Pikachu hybrid.

In addition to new Pokemon, Sun and Moon will feature a free-for-all battle mode, where four trainers go up against each other and can attack whomever they want.

In related news, an artist recently imagined what Pokemon would be like if they were Canadian. While these Pokemon aren't official, I wish they were. They look awesome and capture the Canadian spirit perfectly.
