Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Iono Partner Introduced
Iono previously shared a “stream” video introducing herself to everyone. The shocking part of this video is that a Pokémon character is talking, she has a voice, which has not happened in previous games. She teased everyone about her mysterious Pokémon partner, describing it with its shape, texture, and other characteristics.
Today, the partner was revealed by the game company, a new Pokémon called Bellibolt. It is found in the Paldea region. Check out the details on both Iono and Bellibolt below:
Iono and Bellibolt Details
Gym Leader Iono
Iono is the Gym Leader of Levincia, one of the Paldea region’s prominent cities, and specializes in Electric-type Pokémon. She’s also known as the Supercharged Streamer, having gained popularity online as the host of a show called the Iono Zone.
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.
Bellibolt’s Ability, Electromorphosis, is appearing for the first time in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet. Bellibolt becomes charged when hit by an attack, boosting the power of the next Electric-type move it uses.
