Volcanion (ボルケニオン Borukenion) is a Fire/Water-type Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. It was first revealed on December 14, 2015.

Biology

Physiology

Volcanion is a maroon, quadruped Pokemon with blue and yellow markings on its body. It has blue eyes, and a sharp yellow mustache. It has two "arms" with blue circles and it has four yellow diamond-shaped markings on its chest. It has four huge legs, with three claws extended on each foot. Its tail is short and thick.

Behavior

Natural abilities

It has the ability Water Absorb, which deems Water-Type attacks against it useless. Possessing a specialized organ that is actually its arms, Volcanion is able to instantly convert water vapor into steam. The converted steam is launched at high pressure, having enough strength to destroy mountains.

In order to conceal itself and vanish, Volcanion releases plumes of steam. It has been said to inhabit certain mountain areas that are considered forbidden for humans to walk.
