Disguised by its shape, Skrelp pretends to be a piece of seaweed. When prey gets too close, Skrelp bathes it in poison to keep it from struggling. Skrelp can learn Sludge Bomb, which may leave the opposing Pokémon poisoned. A poisoned Pokémon keeps taking damage until the battle ends.

Clauncher

Clauncher is easily recognizable by the over-sized claw on one of its arms. This useful claw can seize prey and shoot water at others as a projectile! Clauncher's enormous claw can also crack boulders when the Pokémon is at close range. Use the claw to crush opponents with the Water-type move Crabhammer! This powerful move is also more likely to land critical hits.

Talonflame

An evolved form of the recently announced Fletchling, Talonflame is a Fire- and Flying-type Pokémon that gains a whole new level of speed and firepower. It dives at foes, and then attacks with devastating kicks. When the battle heats up, flames will pour from its body as it zooms through the sky. Talonflame can learn Brave Bird, one of the strongest Flying-type moves. It also damages the user.
