In case you missed the news, Pokemon’s most recent Mythical release is currently available from participating Gamestop stores. Available until October 31st, trainers can get a card that grants you your very own Steam typed Pokemon. (Fire and Water)
Volcanion will be redeemable on Pokemon ORAS and Pokemon XY through Redeem a code on Mystery Gift. With the ability Water Absorb, it can regain health when attacked by Water-type moves, making it invulnerable to water moves. Its moveset contains Steam Eruption, Flamethrower, Hydro Pump, and Explosion. That is a powerhouse lineup of moves. The item it holds is the Assault Vest, which increases Sp. Defense by 50%, but on the downside will not allow Volcanion to use non-damaging moves.
Be sure to get your own Volcanion before Halloween, because who knows when it will be back out. Who knows, maybe you could use it to succeed in Sun and Moon, due out next month!
