Bellibolt Revealed as Iono’s New Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Electric Gym Partner

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet


Mere days after her first stream, Paldea’s Electric Gym Leader and influencer Iono revealed her Pokémon to the masses the only way an influencer knows how to – through a video on YouTube. The zappy character announced frog-like Pokémon Bellibolt, showcasing how squishy it really is.



Bellibolt is a EleFrog Pokémon with Electric typing. Pokémon describes it as such:


Bellibolt expands and contracts its body to generate electricity in an organ that looks like a belly button. Electricity is then discharged from the two bumps on either side of its head that resemble eyeballs.
