Gym Leader Iono
Iono is the Gym Leader of Levincia, one of the Paldea region’s prominent cities, specializing in Electric-type Pokemon. She’s also known as the Supercharged Streamer, having gained popularity as the host of the Iono Zone—she even streams her work as a Gym Leader and seems to place great emphasis on viewer engagement on her channel and the number of views she gets. Her catchphrases include: Your eyeballs are MINE—caught in my Electroweb! and ‘Ello, ‘ello, hola! Ciao and Bonjour!

Height: 3’11” (1.2 m)
Weight: 249.1 lbs. (113.0 kg)
Ability: Electromorphosis / Static
Bellibolt expands and contracts its elastic body to generate electricity in an organ that looks like a belly button. The huge amount of electricity generated this way is then discharged from the two bumps on either side of its head that resemble eyeballs.
Its actual eyes are adorably small and round, so when it tries to be intimidating, it puts the eyelike bumps to good use.
It is difficult to train Bellibolt to initiate a battle without it being attacked first. After the sun sets, you can hear strange noises coming from Bellibolt’s habitat. This noise is not Bellibolt’s cries, but a sound emitting from their stomachs–it is known that this sound signals that they are hungry.
Bellibolt’s Ability, Electromorphosis, is a new Ability appearing for the first time in these titles. Bellibolt becomes charged when hit by an attack, boosting the power of the next Electric-type move it uses.
