Paris, France – 7 July 2016: Earlier today at the Japan Expo in Paris, GAME FREAK director Junichi Masuda took to the stage to unveil the brand-new Pokémon Salandit that can be found in the Alola region in the highly anticipated video games Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

The Toxic Lizard Pokémon Salandit emits toxic gas, together with flames, from the base of its tail. The gas it emits has a sweet smell, and anyone who unknowingly breathes it in will become dizzy. Although Salandit is not a particularly powerful Pokémon, it uses its cunning nature to fiercely battle and throw its opponent off balance.

Salandit has the Corrosion Ability, an Ability that no previous Pokémon has had before. The Corrosion Ability means that Salandit can inflict the Poison status condition even on Steel- and Poison-type Pokémon.
