Now Playing: Pokemon Sun/Moon - Salandit Reveal Trailer

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

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.

@pokemongurl9382: I agree, Pokemon has been on the decline since Black and White imo. X and Y were good but Sun and Moon just look absurd. The Pokemon designs are uninspired and the new features are dumb. The ability to poison all types hasn't been a thing for a reason> This is just flat out dumb.

@vilified_signals: The words toxic and fire are modifying the word "Pokemon". You have a toxic pokemon that is also a fire pokemon, hence a toxic fire pokemon.

Although if you ignite some noxious chemicals you'd get a toxic fire, so there's that too.

This seriously made me rethink about which starter I'm gonna choose. I was seriously thinking about Litten but this one might be a better addition as a fire type and with the existence of Bruxish, I guess its gonna be Rowlett now. I wonder if it can poison Komala?

@davillain-: Eh I'm going to wait until I see final forms to pick my starter. But it is between Litten and Rowlett. I wouldn't care too much about having two fire types as long as they have another type as well. That rock puppy is the only one confirmed for my team lol.
