Iono’s love-or-hate-it streaming style has announced the newest generation nine Pokémon: Bellibolt! It’s a frog, with fake eyes.
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.
Bellibolt’s Ability, Electromorphosis, is a new Ability appearing for the first time in these titles. Bellibolt becomes charged when hit by an attack, boosting the power of the next Electric-type move it uses.
What do you think of Bellibolt? How much do you love or hate Iono’s streams? If you don’t like her voice, then you’ll maybe have to complain a bit less about the lack of voice acting apparent in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
