Poisoners prepare! That’s right Pokemon Trainers, another lovely little face has joined the slowly expanding roster of Sun and Moon. Who might this particular entry be you ask? Why, none other than Salandit, a devious little ragamuffin that will surely infuriate you to no end when these games roll around. Why you ask, yet again? Well, Salandit possesses a sneaky little ability that allows it to poison Pokemon…doesn’t sound special, does it? I mean, all Poison types can do that…but not quite like this. You see, Salandit is able to spread this toxic love to those types previously immune; Poison and Steel. Now do you understand? Because I sure as heck do and now I sure as heck want one of these guys. Ability aside, this guy looks awesome. A toxic lizard? Yes please. Also, it’s Poison/Fire? Even more yes please. Of course, I don’t necessarily want to fight one…
|CATEGORY||Toxic Lizard Pokémon|
Salandit emits toxic gas, together with flames, from the base of its tail. This poisonous gas has a sweet smell, and anyone who unknowingly breathes it in will become dizzy. Salandit is not a very powerful Pokémon, but its cunning nature allows it to battle fiercely by throwing its opponents off balance.
Salandit females not only release toxic gases, they can also emit pheromones that attract males of all species, including Pokémon and humans. Inhaling these pheromones may cause opponents to be controlled by Salandit’s will.
Salandit has the Corrosion Ability, a new Ability that no other Pokémon has possessed before. With the Corrosion Ability, it becomes possible to inflict the Poisoned status condition even on Steel- and Poison-type Pokémon.
Oh, it’s name is also a portmanteau of salamander and bandit, so I’m pretty sure some cool evolutions loom on the horizon too…man this guy is cool.
