The Elemental Skylanders are a group of 16 Skylanders that control an element with their bare hands.
After the Giants defeated the Arkeyans, but before the Skylanders defeating Kaos, a group of Skylanders had to keep Skylands safe from natural disasters. Natural disasters in Skylands are different than our natural disasters. Elemental spirits make them when they get angry. The last one they fought, was a disaster unlike any other. It was an living evil thunderstorm . They went to fight and hardly beat it. They fought so hard that they lost all of their powers, weapons, and armor. They had nothing left, but then something magical happened. Since these Skylanders had sacrificed their lives to keep all of Skylands safe, Skylands itself saved them. It took them to all of the different natural disaster areas they went to and gave them the powers of the disasters themselves. The disasters they got their powers from where a forest fire, volcano eruption, tsunami, blizzard, landslide, cave-in, overgrowing plants, drought, tornado, lightning storm, pollution, crumbling building, mysterious disappearances, giant explosion, blackout, and acid rain.Edit
