Hey folks! Those of you on the Discord will have already seen this, since this variant came from asking the Discord regulars for ideas to fill a niche we needed. Since then, the sprites have been bouncing around, the variant has been general knowledge, and its official art was posted earlier today. Other than that, the most that our official channels have shown it has been a teaser on the Regional Variants page. Now that the art is done (with many thanks to Aaronfox for drawing it for us!) we proudly present Altaran Litleo!
Altaran Litleo is a pure Grass-Type that's found rarely in one area of the 3.0 content. Based on a cougar cub (which you may know alternately as puma, mountain lion, American panther, Florida panther, catamount, çuçuarana, Puma concolor, or Felis concolor) this cub hides in tall, dry grasses and the wheat fields of farms, both to disguise itself from predators and to ambush prey. Though it's young and therefore clumsy, it will grow into an efficient and dangerous predator when it evolves.
Altaran Litleo has the normal Abilities of Dry Tinder and Precise, the former of which is its signature, custom Ability. Dry Tinder sets the user alight when hit by a Fire-type move; what does this mean? You'll have to find out when you catch it! Additionally, its Hidden Abilities are Moxie and No Guard.
Altaran Litleo is a Physical attacker with high speed. Its exact stats can be seen on the Regional Variant page. It evolves into Altaran Pyroar via a Leaf Stone.
Also, here's its Radiant.
