I wonder if Turtonator will be like Mudsdale and have a pre-evolution.
Its design is pretty complex, so I could see a it being built off a more simple design.

I get this weird feeling that Turtonator is actually the first stage of a line and will evolve, though. Hopefully into something that looks more like a proper dragon, or a quadrupedal dragon-tortoise.

It looks pretty final to me honestly, but I could also see it having a prevo based on that. Or it could be like its cousin Torkoal.

Does anyone get Bowser vibes from Turtonator? I mean they are both turtle dragons. Maybe Turtonator's inspiration is the same as whatever inspired Bowser?
Idk what Bowser is inspired by, but Turtonator is mix of a matamata turtle, a kappa, a kaiju (probably Gamera) and also explosives.

I wonder if Turtonator will be like Mudsdale and have a pre-evolution.
I think it'll have a pre-evo. Not only does it look like the sort of Pokemon to have a pre-evo, the site says it lives on volcanoes and we really only have one obvious one on the map, which is on the second island. And it looks too strong to be encountered early in the game imo. But maybe I'm wrong and it is, I guess we'll see.

Hmm, not seeing an ankylosaurus in it personally.

Stream link for the opening ceremony of Worlds. Note we aren't guaranteed any news from this, but the last few years there has been an announcement, so we will just have to wait and see. It starts shortly.

Fire/Dragon on Turtonator is an honest waste in my eyes. As far as its design goes, I think it should be Fire/Ground, or perhaps Fire/Rock. Regardless, it's unlikely I'll catch this Pokémon for any reason other than completing the Pokédex.

Oh my god Crabrawler. I love it. But now I have 2 new Fighting type vying for my attention. Decisions, decisions.

And Sandygast and Palossand look great in game. I like how their little shovel's spin around.

Pompadour crab. I love it. And I love how it looks like it has a black eye. Nice touch. I'm hoping for a champion-themed evolution or two.

Stufful's cry is so cute. Now it's guaranteed a spot on my team. And the little plush tag coming out of its butt is another little detail to push the teddy bear theme. But I wonder what the in-universe explanation is for it? Also another way to make a Yugioh joke; Stufful = Fluffal

Crabrawler huh? I don't really like it, I actually preferred yesterday's reveal.
Sandygast and Palossand look a lot more interesting in motion.
Stufful is clearly based on a red panda plushie. The tag underneath its tail was a cute detail.

I really like Crabrawler, but surely it could have been a Water/Fighting type? When was the last time we had a non legendary Water/Fighting Pokemon?
