A new update on Pokemon Sun and Moon comes in the form of yet another special event. According to reports, the game’s next event will feature the one and only Salazzle. Here’s what you need to know about it.
Pokemon Sun and Moon Leaks New Salazzle Event
Allegedly, the Salazzle event will launch on Aug. 14. It is said to run until Sept. 4. Though the reported event may become available soon enough, it is yet to actually be confirmed. As reports reveal, the leak comes from Serebii. It shows what appears to be a flier from GameStop which indicates several details regarding the upcoming event.
Reportedly, the featured Pokemon will come from GameStop exclusively. However, GameStop itself has yet to address these claims. Regardless, there is already some information on what fans can expect once the Salazzle event launches.
Salazzle is arguably not much of a rare Pokemon, to begin with. However, what is most notable about its alleged event is that the featured Salazzle to become available will be “Battle-Ready.” This means that it will already be at level 50 and will carry several known abilities. This would include moves such as Sludge Bomb, Fake Out, Flamethrower, and Toxic.
Seeing as confirmation from The Pokemon Company and GameStop have yet to be released, the Salazzle event remains to be a rumor for now. Nevertheless, it does give some fans hope of adding yet another free Pokemon to their arsenal.
Currently, the Shiny Tapu Koko event is still ongoing. To acquire the aforementioned Pokemon, players will have to open the Mystery Gift menu and choose the Receive Gift option. The Shiny Tapu Koko offer will only be available until Aug. 14.
What is Salazzle?
For the uninitiated, Salazzle boasts of being a dual-type Pokemon. It falls under the Poison/Fire type. Pokemon Sun and Moon marks its debut in the Pokemon franchise. Notably, all Salazzle are female Pokemon. This is due to the fact that it is the evolved form of female Salandit. Male Salandit are reportedly not known to evolve into any other Pokemon thus far.
Shiny Tapu Koko
Players are urged to bank on Pokemon Sun and Moon’s current ongoing event in order to acquire a Shiny Tapu Koko. To those who are unaware, Tapu Koko is one of the guardian deities in the game. Its Shiny iteration is definitely one-of-a-kind and thus makes it an imperative addition for Pokemon collectors. The Shiny version of Tapu Koko features an updated look in its color palette. Like other Shiny Pokemon, it sparkles when taken out in battles.
