One of the newest legendary Pokemon, Volcanion, will be given away this October

Only question is, how do Water and Fire typing work together?

As Pokemon begins to close the book on its sixth generation, Nintendo has one more movie in store for Ash Ketchum's adventures in the Kalos Region, Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel. To celebrate the launch of the movie, Gamestop will be giving away the movie's star legendary, Volcanion via a download code that you can pick up in the store. Volcanion isn't exactly a surprise to Pokemon aficionados, as the Fire/Water (that typing still befuddles me) Legendary was discovered in the game's code before officially being revealed last year.

Volcanion is the 721st Pokemon in the Pokedex and the last of the Kalos region Pokemon. It will come at Level 70 with the following move set:

  • Steam Eruption
  • Flamethrower
  • Hydro Pump
  • Explosion
Steam Eruption is Volcanion's unique attack that is a Water-type move that can also burn opponents. Volcanion's Hidden Ability is Water Absorb which, if Volcanion is hit by a Water-Type attack, its hit points will be restored by one-quarter of its max health. The Pokemon will also be holding an Assault Vest, which raises its holder's Special Defense by 50%, but prevents them from using status moves. Given Volcanion's all-offensive move set, that's hardly an issue.
