A new pocket monster is heading to Pokémon X/Y and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. It's known as Volcanion, and its the first Pokémon to simultaneously sport the fire and water attributes.

This mythical Pokémon creates steam within its body, which is expelled at scalding temperatures from the ring on its back. Volcanion’s power is so great that it can crush mountains and shape the earth itself.

Currently, Volcanion can’t be discovered during normal gameplay, but the details on how to catch this rare Pokémon are coming soon. You can get a glimpse of Volcanion in action in the brief trailer below and learn by visiting Pokémon's website.

In other Pokémon-related announcements, the latest movie Hoopa and the Clash of Ages premieres this Saturday at 6 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network. Check out the film's latest trailer below.


Our Take
Volcanion's dual attributes likely makes it a must-have for Pokémon aficionados, so be sure to keep your eyes and ears peeled for news on how to nab it. The Hoopa movie should be a solid treat for the younger trainers out there.
