Pokemon Scarlet, Violet Introduces Bellibolt

The latest net idol in the Pokemon universe, Iono, has finally revealed to us her partner Pokemon: Bellibolt. Like she teased in her video, Bellibolt is a “squishy” and “easygoing” Electric-type Pokemon. Despite her challenging the chat to guess what Pokemon she has, the game was rigged from the start. Undoubtedly, no one was able to guess her Pokemon considering it is a brand new one to the Paldea region.

Bellibolt is the EleFrog Pokemon, and as you can imagine, it is an Electric-type with a fat frog body. Like some amphibians and fish, some of its body parts are actually organs to generate and discharge electricity. Its “belly button” is an organ that creates electricity, which then shoots out of the “eyeballs” on the sides of its head. Its name in English is a portmanteau of the words “belly” and “bolt.” This is likely a reference to the fact that its electricity originates from its belly.

Iono’s video and her interactions with her Bellibolt give an idea of its personality and size. Granted, this may be the personality of Iono’s Bellibolt and not all of the Bellibolts in the world. After she introduces her Bellibolt, Iono reminds players that she is a Gym Leader that they will have to beat. Unlike most Gym Leaders, she refers to this as a “collab.”

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will launch on November 18, 2022, for the Nintendo Switch.
