For some reason, only females have been found. It creates a reverse harem of male Salandit that it lives with.

Salazzle is kind of like Vespiquen, in that only females get to evolve into one. It was not revealed prior to Sun/Moon’s release, so the first time I saw a Salazzle was actually the totem one in Kiawe’s trial.
Its typing of Poison/Fire is unique to its family, as is its ability Corrosive, which lets it poison Steel and Poison type Pokemon. I learns a couple of Dragon moves by level-up, maybe because it’s based on a lizard?
Stat-wise it’s really fast, and has good Sp Attack, but it’s really fragile, with only 60 defenses and 68 HP.
