Classification: The Swordfish Pokémon
Description: The pointed spear of Marlance is made of a strong and resilient metal, allowing it be used both as a jabbing and slashing weapon. Marlance will engage in swordfights to determine their social standing.
Evolves from Pufflail at level 27 and into Saws at level 48
Trivia: Marlance’s sword isn’t the only weaponry it possess. The quills in its dorsal fin are extremely pointy, and all of its other fins have razor sharp edges. In fact, it’s entire body can be used as one big weapon. Marlance can also swim through water at incredibly high velocities.
On a related note, an image of Tyde has recently been added to the Tenno League page.
Classification: The Brutal Bushido Pokémon
Description: Its entire body can be used as a weapon. Often instead of fighting, Slashogun will command hordes of Slasharp to do its work for it, unless its honor is questioned, in which case it will fight alone.
Evolves from Slasharp by leveling up while holding the Samurai Helmet
Trivia: Slashogun is the arch-rival of Ninjato. Slashogun embodies brute force and honor, while Ninjato employs stealth and trickery. Their differences are irreconcilable, making it so that they have and will always fight when two meet for the first time. Also, while Ninjato and Ninjitsu, their pre-evolved forms, tend to live solitary lives, Slashogun and Slasharp live in communities where one Slashogun rules over a gang of Slasharp.
Also, the Attackdex has been updated with Slashogun’s signature move, Cold Steel.
Classification: The Solar Panel Pokémon
Description: Upon evolution, Turtsol’s solar panels become much more efficient, allowing to gather even more energy from the sun. It has also integrated the metal from its solar panels into its shell, allowing it to become a much better defensive mechanism.
Evolves from Turcell at level 16 and into Solurtle at level 36
Trivia: A Turcell can live without its solar panels, as most of its energy is still derived from traditional food at that stage. But once it evolves into Turtsol, it will be unable to function if its panels are removed, as it relies on the sun for most of its energy. A Turtsol will quickly die without its panels.
Classification: The Solar Powered Pokémon
Description: Solurtle can sustain itself with nothing but energy from the sun. It will spend any extra time it has basking in the sun, absorbing energy for when it needs it.
Evolves from Turtsol at level 36
Mega Evolves into Mega Solurtle with Solurtite
Description: Upon Mega Evolving, Solurtle’s solar panels now cover a larger percentage of its body, allowing it to absorb even more sunlight. These panels also double as armor. Because of this, Mega Solurtle gains a boost in Special Attack, Defense, and Special Defense, but the bulk of the armor causes a decrease in Speed.
Mega Stone: Solurtite
Mega Ability: Drought
Trivia: Solurtle’s solar panels are the most efficient means known of transferring energy from the sun into usable power, with a nearly 100% conversion rate. When it Mega Evolves it obtains a true 100% conversion rate. Solurtle was the inspiration of solar power.
Also, the Movedex now includes two new moves for Solurtle.
As a random side note, happy 30th birthday Mario! I hope you have at least another successful 30 years ahead of you!
Classification: The Chainsaw Stag Pokémon
Description: This Pokémon is known for its mandibles that double as powerful chainsaws, allowing it to cut down trees with ease. It cuts down trees so that it can eat the woody interior, hollowing out the inside of the trunk in the process.
Does not Evolve
Trivia: Buzzsaw is based off of both the Saw Stag Beetle, and the Cyclommatus Stag Beetle. Saw Stag obviously because of the chainsaw pun, and the Cylommatus because it’s known for its massively over-sized pincers.
That’s right, a new Mega Evolution is here, and it receives a dex entry as well.
Description: Mega Wailord has the ability to dive to the bottom of the deepest trenches in the ocean and can easily withstand their high pressures. Its strong metal exterior makes nearly impervious to certain attacks. Its Defense, Special Defense, and Attack are all boosted, but its Speed is lowered. Gaining the Steel-Typing, Mega Wailord can now use moves such as Heavy Slam to its full potential (especially because it becomes much heavier upon Mega Evolving), as well new Steel moves added to its level up move set, such as Iron Head, Gyro Ball, and Iron Tail.
Mega Stone: Wailordite
Mega Ability: Bulletproof
Trivia: The thing attached to Mega Wailord’s tail is an actual functioning propeller. That means that it can swim two ways, using its tail like normal, or using its propeller like a submarine.
