The Pokémon Company just announced Beribolt, a chunky electric frog-like pocket monster, and fans believe he was inspired by the original design of Politoedo, the demo creature in Pokémon Gold and Silver.
In addition to being large green frogs, both Pokémon share the same face design (Polytoed’s nostrils are Beribolt eyes, but the ‘eyes’ are actually electric sacs), and the same on their bellies. There is a large circle with a small yellow circle in the middle, the same orange knee pads.

I’m not sure Bellibolt is actually based on the Pokémon Gold and Silver demo Politoed, but there are undeniable similarities.
However, we do know a few things about the new Pokémon, which is revealed to be the partner of gym leader Iono. It is an electric frog Pokemon that emits from fake eyeballs.
This is just the latest on the list of new Pokémon coming to Scarlet and Sumire, the 9th generation games releasing for Nintendo Switch on November 18th. It brings the series’ first co-op mode, an open world set in the Pardea region. A legendary Pokémon that transforms into a motorcycle.
