[UPD1] A few new pictures added

The evolution for the recently revealed Pokémon Amaura has been leaked by the website Jeux Video. Its name is Aurorus and has a new attack called Freeze-Dry which is super effective against Water-type Pokémon and may freeze opponents! Update: IGN has now released some pictures of Tyrantrum, Tyrunt’s evolution. It can learn Head Smash.

Game Details

In addition to the two new Pokémon, various game outlets got to play Pokémon X & Y and have revealed some small additions to the games.

  • New Kalos Pokémon will not be receiving Mega Evolutions, only Pokémon from generations 1 through 5
  • It’s official, Masuda has confirmed that the overworld will not be in 3D, only battles and some special scenes
  • PokéCenters will now feature an area to customize trainer appearance alongside the medical area and PokéMart
  • Pokémon now gain XP when the wild opponent is captured
  • Professor Sequioa asks you to run an errand at the start of the game: delivering a letter to your mother

Trivia

Amargasaurus

Amaura and its evolution are both probably based on Amargasaurus. The artist of the above picture has depicted it with skin sails similar to the two Pokémon, but recent theories speculate that the rows of spikes probably stood on their own without any connecting tissue.

  • MarcoosVGC

    Where was this found?

  • Cheren

    Haha, it looks cute and sorta dumb. I like it.

    • Cheren

      Is it legit though? :/

      • DuskSharkEX

        Yes.

  • ZiiaChan

    Oooo, nice! It’s pretty c:

  • ShayminSkyflower

    I like it

  • Chicolombia

    It’s ok. I’m still using Tyrunt though. Can someone leak his evo? Please?

    • dffsgsf

      its right there how did you miss it?

      • Sable

        When he posted that, Tyrunt’s evolution wasn’t revealed yet, that’s how.

      • Reece

        If you look closely, next to his name, it says 2 hours….Magical I know

  • zuhzoo

    Yes! It looks great, this is the one I am going for 🙂

  • Wes

    I love it. Source?

    I was picking Amaura anyway and this makes it even better.

  • This Pokemon looks amazing!

  • EarthenWarrior

    hmm looks like a long neck with some kind of aurora frill sail or something

    Still going with Tyrunt though…

    • zuhzoo

      The land before time? 😀 An aurora sail sounds nice. It’s all good, tyrunt is awesome. Love this one though.

  • Wes

    So are we expecting a new video to reveal it later today? Kind of like when Pyroar was accidentally leaked.

    • moving

      Almost definitely further details, and given the name of the site a video also seems likely.

      • Wes

        Cool. I’m hoping for a new “accidental” leak each week leading up to X and Y. Maybe I’m being too hopeful…

        • Sable

          I dunno, us getting this ‘accidentally’ after Pyroar? Seems too convenient.

        • Miniryu-Ninja

          Im beginning to think GF has given a new reveal of an evolved form to different websites to reveal at different times. IGN got pyroar, JV got Amaura’s evo…so thats the US and France covered…maybe it will be a sort of worldwide theme to go along with the worldwide release 🙂

          • Wes

            Maybe. Right now I just want to see what my little Helioptile and Skrelp so evolve into. ;(

          • Sable

            Especially Skrelp, right?

          • Wes

            Yup! How’d you know? 😉

          • I want to see Helioptile, Skrelp, and Clauncher! ;D

          • Miniryu-Ninja

            Yes me too- looking at putting Helioptile and Clauncher on my team so hoping their evo’s are good! Looking at it i think Tyrunt, Clauncher, Skrelp and Helioptile are pretty good candidates to be the ones with evo’s revealed should my observation turn out to be true.

          • Wes

            I wcs thining that if we get a video revealing this Amaura evolution, it might just include Tyrunts evolution since they’re meant the counterparts.

          • ShayminSkyflower

            I’m hoping your correct that would be so awesome

    • Maybe! Tyrunt was leaked by mistake by IGN! I would really like to see this guy in action!

  • TheSidKaiz

    it looks great however i still prefer Tyrunt, but i will get both fossils as I am getting both games 😀

  • Ariana

    If you guys read the article you will find that they posted the source of where they found the pic. So u guys can stop asking for a source now. If y’all learn to REAAD instead of rushing to see the pic and get first comment… Argh

    • Wes

      We asked before the main article was updated with the source. Get your facts straight before you go ranting.

    • Miniryu-Ninja

      Actually when the article first posted it didn’t have any written information…this has only just been added.

  • Reece

    Looks interesting…simple…but interesting

  • hen da man

    I prefer Amaura personally but it still looks nice 🙂

  • Wes

    Is it just me, or does this guy look a bit incomplete to anyone else? He looks like a middle stage evolution to me, but we’ve never had a three-stage evolution line when it comes to fossils. :/

    • moving

      I thought the same thing. It still looks small, if that makes sense. You never know, they could change things up a bit. But I doubt that.

      • Wes

        Yea, I see what you mean. I was thinking that real dinosaurs had much longer necks and they were just larger in general. I guess I’ve learned never to assume something when it comes to GameeFreak.

        • Sable

          I had thought about this my self, and I realized if they went with real dinosaur sizes, these fossils would be gigantic. I mean, a t-rex can be 40 feet long, and were 13 feet at the hips height wise. I mean, Wailord is ‘only’ 47′ feet itself, presumably length. Plus, we’ve kind of had a long necked dinosaur kind of sort’ve in terms of design before, Dialga, so we can probably use it as kind of a reference point for how large they’d probably go.

          • Wes

            But de also had Tropius who was a lot smaller than Dialga. And remember that image of when Team Flare meets you in a cave. It had huge fossil in the wall behind them.

          • Reece

            We’ve also got Meganium as a reference

          • Sable

            True. Man there are more long necked dinosaurs that I keep forgetting about heh.

    • Miniryu-Ninja

      Yes…personally im a bit disappointed mostly due to the blandness of those frill’s – i was hoping they might have been shaded to look like an aurora once it had evolved.

  • ZiiaChan

    I really wonder how people and sites get these leaks o_o; do they hack into nintendo’s database or something? LOL;

    • Wes

      I think GF gives them to the sites to reveal at a certain time to keep the hype for the games high.

  • jugss

    looks angelic

  • Megapoke

    I wonder if these fossil Pokemon are going to large in size maybe close to warlord size or a little smaller….hmmm

  • ShayminSkyflower

    Now I’m definitely gonna get amaura

  • DDD

    gonna be a tank like lapras

  • TCMets
    • GLITCH’D

      WHAT WHAT WHAT!? So psyched it hurts!

    • GLITCH’D

      WHAT WHAT WHAT!? So psyched it hurts!

    • Sable

      Why do they have to have him using hyper beam*or whatever that attack is, kinda looks like the opening of hyper beam to me*, doesn’t give us a good angle.

      And boy does he have a big head. And decent sized arms, actually, for a t-rex.

      • GLITCH’D

        I spy a heck of a lot of teeth in those jaws!

        • Sable

          I’m seeing some official art on IGN too, but not a good clear image yet, it isn’t loading fast.

  • GLITCH’D

    What a lovely design! This makes me extremely hopeful for a Tyrunt evo leak! I don’t know if my poor heart can take any more!

  • CL

    This evolution is awesome! Its so elegant :3

    I’m still in two minds whether or not to get Tyrunt over Amaura though. I wonder if we’ll get its evolution sometime ?

    And because we got Pyroar last week and Amauras evo this week, does anyone think we could get a new Pokemon each week till the release ?

    • GLITCH’D

      I hope so!

    Looks really cool! Glad it’s real! (Give all credit to TCMets). ;D

    • TCMets

      It’s indeed real.

      • Prince Azulon

        No I think of it that way too.

    • gamesaq

      Pokeball go!

      • Prince Azulon

        lol

    • regidudeam

      Move over Tyranitar, someone is going to replace you xD!

      • Sable

        Tyranitar was never a T-Rex anyways.

      • Francis Dayrit

        Yeah, he was sorta-kinda-looka Godzilla. XD

      • Loark A.K.A. Troublesome Treec

        No, Tyranitar will always be one of my favourites.
        PLus, I don’t really like this new T-rex Pokemon that much, I like Amuara and Aurorus better

        • Prince Azulon

          It’s sad, I’ve only used Tyranitar once in my life, Platinum.

    • ForceUpdateSani

      This pic just makes me wana… *rawr*

      • Prince Azulon

        XD LOL

      I wonder what that move is? Focus Blast?

    Here is as much of the official art we have on Tyrantrum.

    • GLITCH’D

      This looks unreally awesome! Damnit GF! Now I really can’t wait >_<

      • Sable

        I’m a bit surprised how red he turned from his brown look before.

        • GLITCH’D

          It’s because he’s angry all the time from not getting what he wants!

          • Sable

            Never will the move Outrage have a more appropriate user.

          • zuhzoo

            Agreed!

    • Daniel Rojas

      It’s like it became super old in the blink of an eye. It looks badass, but I don’t know why I would have preferred a younger looking one (more vitalty, more power)

      • GLITCH’D

        I guess the beard makes it look more old and grumpy, like a king that’s been in his seat so long he expects to get what he wants XD

        • Daniel Rojas

          HAHAHA, exactly!! Being a fossil makes it more “unique” and rare, so the King-idea has a nice ring to it. Has been waiting SO long to rule the earth xD

          • Sable

            Tyrunt IS the Royal Heir Pokemon.

          • Daniel Rojas

            Goddammit Glitch’d and Sable.. now I’ll have to tear opponents apart with JUST this guy! (like I did on a run in GS with Feraligator xD)

          • Sable

            Heavy is the burden of the crown Tyrantrum wears.

          • Daniel Rojas

            Ruling a Kingdom, lonesome destiny..

          • GLITCH’D

            Long live the reptile pokemon!

    Amaura Evo

    It’s from a very serious French website, so it’s official.

    His French name is Dragmara, and he’s said to possess the ice-type move
    “Lyophilisation”, which is super effective against water.

    is this real?

    • GLITCH’D

      Perhaps ice type may be getting little boosts after all in forms such as this!

  • hh

    Man this is awesome. Was thinking of different designs for them both but im cool with these ones. Definitely going with Tyrunt

  • CL

    Still dunno who to pick! Gah! I think I’ll get Tyrunt, while I normally get “elegant” looking Pokemon for my Team I do sometimes have a “rugged” looking one on the team and Tyrantrum is perfect 😀 X and Y couldn’t come quick enough!!!!

  • Sable

    Okay, can we agree on one thing?

    There are no more accidents in this. Game Freak is almost DEFINITELY going to have little updates on Pokemon, like the spontaneous evolutions of Amaura*serebii is reporting it as being called Aurorus* and Tyrantrum from here to release. Maybe nothing more this week, but little things. The timing of this, one for in France, and then here on IGN, is TOO convenient to be a coincidence.

  • King Phoenix

    Why have we not seen an evolution of helioptile seriously I feel bad for him/her now!

    • King Phoenix

      Great designs tho!

      • Sable

        I’m actually really happy they have kept the evolutions ‘simple.’ In that, these seem very much like natural progressions in terms of design from the prevos, and not adding on a bunch unnecessary tertiary details to make it represent something else at the same time.

      Could just be a mistake for Sycamore I think

      • Smurphy

        Not the way he describes it. He says to take a letter from the Proffesor to your mom and then your journey starts. You don’t meet sycamore until lumiose city I believe.

        … Oh no. Okay. I have one request, Gamefreak…

        Do not make Tyrantrum Purple and Green for it’s Shiny Form. Please. Don’t. I will die, I will absolutely die. I don’t know if I could handle literally fighting Barney in Pokemon. It would be too much.

    • Desume

      Tyrantrum I’m going to nickname him Rex after the T-Rex from We’re back or something from a Land before time I haven’t decided yet.

    • ItsahimJosh

      Right now, Tyrunt. May change once i see rest of pokedex though…

    • Michael Martin

      I’m going with both since I’m getting both x and y

    • ForceUpdateSani

      I will be choosing the fabulous amaura :3

  • Tyrunt’s evolution is so bad ass and so scary that its actually prompting me to pick Amaura. I love both designs so much, but Tyrunt’s evo is even scarier than Mega Garchomp lol.

        eh? I am guessing their stats maybe on par with mega evo.

        • Sazando

          if so, they would need to nerf them in future games if they want them to mega-evolve

      • Jiro Uchiha

        Tell me about it. I read a supposed Masuda interview that said Pangoro would Mega evolve.

    • MegaLucario98

      i hope the kalos region pokemon will be enough strong to knock out a pokemon with mega evo.

      • Daniel Rojas

        You can hope that of any Pokemon!! Which will most likely be the case for “competitive” ones.. along with good battling skills.

    • MegaLucario98

      i hope the kalos region pokemon will be enough strong to knock out a pokemon with mega evo.

    • zuhzoo

      This is what I suspected and was hoping for. This way everyone focuses on the pokemon themselves, and don’t kind of ignore final evos to focus on their megas. Makes the gen 6 pokemon special in themselves! I assume they will then do gen 6 megas in gen 7, which will be pretty cool, and get us to look back at/use older pokemon a little more. 🙂

      I’m really having a hard time believing it lol. I mean, the Kalos region holds the answer to the mysterious Mega Evolution, but only foreign Pokemon can Mega Evolve? Say what?

      • CL

        Well it may hold the answer, but I don’t think it said Mega Evolution originated there 😛

      • ForceUpdateSani

        I agree very strange seems like the starters for kalos won’t get megas now.

      • Daniel Rojas

        Also, older Pokemon have “been there for longer time”, making it easy to study them.. Yeah, no matter what the Pokemon world says, these just sprouted out of nowhere for everyone xD

    • Reece

      Within X & Y meaning that any potential future sequels/third version….
      Or maybe they want to do something with them, maybe the starters for Kalos are more important than we think and somehow their mega-evolutions will have some significance (or maybe I’m overthinking)

      • Daniel Rojas

        Makes sense. They might want us to use them and get used to them. Maybe in Z (if it comes out) a new batch of Megas will come out (as the 3rd usually has form changes).

      • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

        Good man! Yes I can see GF playing us their favourite curve ball technique like that. A few generations ago I would of said no way, but since gen 5 the sequel/special edition games are now different; containing totally unique story lines ect. They could easily hold back the Kalos Mega starters to give the games an edge for promotion reasons, and that wouldn’t bother me a bit. What would, is if we were not given their Megas until the following gen.

        On another note, writing this made me think: does anyone remember when a Pokemons attacks were called Techniques instead? Wow that was a long time ago, I wonder how many fans remeber that little Pokefact! 🙂 ^^

    • Daniel Rojas

      I sure hope it’s not true and becomes a surprise.

    • Milotic4Ever

      I suppose they did this because the Kalos Pokemon are already ‘new’ and they’re giving old Pokemon a new spin on appearance and strategy. It wouldn’t be fair to give new Pokemon Mega Evolutions when we just got them this generation.

    • Prince Azulon

      Aww. I wanted a Dark Witch Fennekin Meg-Evolution.

  • Jiro Uchiha

    Edit @ 13:42: According to an interview on Polygon, it has been stated that no Kalos Pokémon will have a Mega Evolution within Pokémon X & Y.

    Aurorus has a move called Freeze Dry, which is an Ice-type move which freezes the opponent but is said to be super effective against Water-type Pokémon.

    This doesn’t say whether its 100% freeze or not, but it seems so. I hope Frosslas gets this, it just fits to me.

    • GLITCH’D

      I would hate for a move that insta-freezes a pokemon. Oh well, I guess we know what the Spore of this generation is,

      • Jiro Uchiha

        I like that idea, 100% freeze, as the freeze condition doesn’t activate alot, so it needs a boost like that imo

        • Sable

          It would be a highly inaccurate move though, 50% at the most. And to show off a special move that can do super effective damage on Water types, I really think it just has a chance of freezing, maybe a bit higher than the usual 10% chance, but not 100.

          • Jiro Uchiha

            Doesn’t matter to me, as long as it’s bulky enough to take a hit while i spam freeze dry. Though, i think tyrantrum should get a similar move, but se on fairy, or steel.

      On the nintendolife site, they word it as It can expel air as cold as –240 degrees Fahrenheit to damage enemies, or even form a wall of ice as protection. A move making its debut in X & Y, meanwhile, is Freeze-Dry, which is Super-Effective against Water types (unlike some other Ice moves) and can freeze opponents. It says can, which implies it won’t be 100% Besides, if it did have 100% freeze, that means it’s accuracy would be 50% or less to match Inferno and Zap Cannon.

    • Skiddo

      I wonder how it will be super-effective on water, it sounds like an Ice-type move. Maybe it’s our first Dual-type move to be revealed?

      • Daniel Rojas

        I guess it is something like how we got burn effect on a water move (Scald).

        • Sable

          Wonder if Scald will be retconned into dealing super effective damage on Grass or Ice or something like that, giving it actual fire type traits.

        • GLITCH’D

          This I like. I think it gives an apt advantage to ice types, especially as it seems like most water types won’t be able to learn it unlike Ice Beam.

          • Daniel Rojas

            Yup, they definitely need all the help they can get. And most water types walling them has never been kind to them.

            I wonder if there will be more like this move..

      Interview definitely confirms we get the Kanto starters at the beginning of the game. And if no Kalos Pokemon get mega evolutions, then they are probably going to be how it gets shown off for us*besides Torchic* as opposed to the Kalos starters. Though… I hope the Kalos starters stats are a bit higher than the regular starters to compensate, not MASSIVELY so, but a bit at least.

      • Jordin

        So I’m not going to be able to start with my Chespin!!??

    • BulbaSword

      Oh Snap, they’d like a new Snap game. It doesn’t look like anything will happen with that comment for a long time though, but people can still dream, right?

  • CL

    So I saw the polygon interview and this got my attention:

    “X and Y will include all Pokemon from all previous games, offering the largest selection of Pokemon in any of the series’ titles.”

    I really like the sound of that 😀

    • Skiddo

      :O WOW!!!! Does that mean like a regional dex over 700?!?!?!

      • CL

        Maybe :3

      • Or just a removal of “regional” dex maybe.

        • BulbaSword

          We’ve already seen in a scan that someone found that Pikachu is #36 in some dex. Maybe each region of Kalos has their own dex? So instead of removing regional dexes, instead Kalos will have 3 regional dexes. Maybe? It seems too good to be true.

  • Archeops127

    Oh my. Dual-Type moves for the win! Pokebeach rumors strike once more!

    • Skiddo

      Freeze Dry? what is it? what move?

      • Reece

        An Ice type attack that is apparently SE against Water

        • Archeops127

          It’s scary how right the rumors are

    • I doubt there are dual type moves.

  • Hellsingkid
  • hen da man

    IGN article says this:

    “The names of X and Y represent the philosophy we had behind the two games,” explained Yoshida. “We’ve taken the idea of X and Y from the geometric X- and Y-axes. They represent two different ways of thought. At the same time, we want to convey a message encouraging people to find a common ground, where X and Y converge.”

    When I explained my theory to Masuda, he seemed bemused. “Xerneas is meant to evoke imagery of eternity, while Yveltal is destruction. Perhaps you could see some ties between feminine and masculine qualities there!”

    • hen da man

      So it is based off of the X and Y geometric axes

      • ghostycorp

        which is surprisingly deep since they make them analogous to ways of thought, what with the origin axis = people finding a common ground.. Maybe the hypothetical 3rd game will have something to do with origin axis?

    • Fen

      this explains how something that is so often referred to as cold and clinical like science converges with beauty and spiritualism.

  • Miniryu-Ninja

    So these so called Dual Typed moves may not be Dual typed at all…it seems they will be more advanced that anything. Taking on more personalised effects based on what they do. So Freeze Dry is still an ice type move but since it freezes all liquids and turns them dry it is also super effective against water types.

    • Daniel Rojas

      This! I agree 100%.

      So it might just behave as a normal ICE move, except for this “ability” to super-effect on water pokes.

      • Miniryu-Ninja

        Exactly! I personally love it…it seems like a natural evolution for moves (side note: they have said evolution is one of the themes for XY so this does make sense) and gives them more personality. I noticed it with Scald last gen…personally i loved that move because it had an extra trait that was unusual for a water move. When you used it on grass types and they glowed red it almost seemed like it should have been super effective.

        • Daniel Rojas

          Hahaha, changing effects across colors/types is a nice new-idea. It’s quite creative, and this Freeze Dry is too. Hope they have more in store for us.

    • BulbaSword

      Poor Quagsire will be hit x4 by another move 🙁

  • EarthenWarrior

    This may sound insane coming from me a Major Ground type enthusiast, but it’s high time ice Pokemon got a move that can freeze a opponent instantly since we have status moves for every ailment.

    But then again, Ice types hurt….a lot…so cold…

    • Sable

      Well, it won’t be this one. Or if it is, it’ll only have 50% accuracy at the most. Because it does deal damage. No way they are going to have a 100% accuracy move that deals damage and instantly causes freeze without horrible accuracy, unless it’s a really really weak attack, and even then, Freeze is a lot more detrimental than say paralysis and burn *zap cannon and infenro, two attacks that have done this.*

  • TCMets

    It seems we gain experience if we capture a Pokemon now…not sure why.

    • Sable

      Hm. May be because we technically are ‘beating’ them, and not running away. It’ll make grinding faster.

      • Daniel Rojas

        Just throw a Masterball to everything! xD

      • Michael Martin

        Its probably not going to Be much though probably a fraction of what you’d of Gotten if you defeated it Unless they want a more Rewarding feeling To it and give you more for catching Pokemon

    • CL

      Maybe from the “fight” we have with them before we catch them ?

      • TCMets

        But what if we use a Quick Ball? Your Pokemon didn’t do any battling then. Meh, like Sable said it makes grinding faster, just strange to me.

        • CL

          Hmm wouldn’t meeting a Pokemon still be an “Experience” ? XD

          • TCMets

            Touche xP

    • GLITCH’D

      To be honest I was always surprised as a kid why pokemon didn’t gain experience when catching other pokemkon; it’s not like they didn’t fight it and technically they should gain more experience by learning how to carefully weaken a pokemon without defeating it completely and making it impossible to catch

  • hen da man

    Pokemon will gain experience when a Pokemon is captured

    What.

    • BulbaSword

      Not entirely necessary, nor expected, but it is sotra cool. It really won’t make too much of a difference, but I guess it’s small nice, touch. Hmm, imagine catching a Lv 55 Audino with a Quick Ball and only having a Lv 1 Chespin with a Lucky Egg in battle. It’d almost be fully evolved by the end of the battle.

  • ShinyXatu

    …? …?
    ……?

  • ShinyXatu

    What, why, and WHAT?

    This is not what I expected to find when I came to PokeJungle . Am I crazy for not liking Tyrantrus very much ?

  • Shun.e

    the two dinos are awesome in game but I thought the artworks were fakes… it looks like bad deviantarts. sometimes in gen6 I don’t recognize sugimori’s art. is it just me ?

    • Sable

      Or his style may be changing a bit? Artists drawing style can change over time.

      • Fen

        To be honest, some of his artistic interpretations detract from the pokemon’s designs in many instances. I prefer the dream world art.

        • Sable

          I don’t disagree at all. I’d like to see the Dream World art of Quilladin for instance, because I think it for one looks a lot better in game than his artwork, which is at such a TERRIBLE angle. Hell, the in game of Braixen has made me appreciate it a bit more, based on the art I was unimpressed.

      • GLITCH’D

        This. I mean has anyone seen the original Sugimori art of the Kanro pokemon compared to his updated art?

      • Shun.e

        His style has changed since the beginning, of course, but this time I have a strange feeling. Look at Venusaur modern artwork VS Mega venusaur artwork, I see much more work in venusaur ( I mean, the lines, not the design)

        Tyrantrum’s jaw in the artwork, the lines are strange, there something wrong…

        • Sable

          Well, he has that beard shape on his jaw, which is separate from the jaw itself. Looks to be the same material as his neck fringe. It is a fairly sharp division, though. Maybe there is something different, but the art itself is still official art.

  • Shiny Trapinch

    Well that was unexpected.

    • ShinyXatu

      Are you on Team Tyrantrum or Team Aurorus? 😀

      • Shiny Trapinch

        I’m leaning towards the T-Rex side, but they’re both so cool.

      • RavenWindSirvi

        I will be getting one of each

  • I don’t mind the Kalos pokes not having Mega’s yet.
    We have to get used to them.
    When Black 1 and White 1 came around 5th Gen Poke’s didnt have Dreamworld abilities yet

    We’ll get Mega 6th Gen Pokes in maybe Version Z or Emerald remake

    • HikaruAyame

      That’s actually a really good comparison…

  • Fen

    Tyrantrum is pretty amazing. Even though I prefer the more regal/sophisticated/elegant sorts of pokemon for a slot on my team, I will definitely use this pokemon in the future, though probably not my first run-through. I am glad to see the white frills, red scaley skin, and gold spiked-head plate (with gold scales scattered sporadically) I’d give this about a 9 out of 10. It’s a really exciting design!

    Aurorus is definitely better than its pre-evolution. The saturated orange-yellow frill looks much better as a less saturated yolk color. The white crown on it’s head significantly improves what it’s pre-evolution was missing as well. It gives it more character. Lastly, the new additions of crystals patterned around the jagged dark/light blue lining, swirled tail, and elongated frills really changed my mind about this pokemon line. I would say the design is about an 8.5 out of 10.

    These are both solid additions to the Kalos region.

    • ShinyXatu

      Nice review, I must say. However, for some reason, Tyrantrum just doesn’t do it for me. I will be picking Amaura instead, I think.

      • ForceUpdateSani

        That’s really interesting I mean I was set on getting amaura but after seeing tyrantrum it’s hard to choose but it’s all just personal thoughts.

    • redheadkidd

      it is the royal heir pokemon after all

  • Ben

    These are easily some of the best designs of X and Y yet. Gonna have a hard time choosing between the two!

    • ShinyXatu

      I’m picking Aurorus because of its design and Ice typing, I don’t know about you.

      • Ben

        I probably will too.

        • ShinyXatu

          Think of how much Freeze-Dry and it’s ability Refrigerate could help in-game!

          • Sable

            It should be fairly powerful. Plus, teaming it up with Fairies and Psychic types should help out against Fighting Types

          • GLITCH’D

            For refrigerate to be any use, it’l need some pretty good normal type moves though. I wonder if it’l have hyper beam?

  • GLITCH’D

    I hope we get more screenshots of Tyrantrum!

    • CL

      Maybe we’ll get a trailer like Pyroar ?

  • Ultron

    I really like aurorus!! It’s cute 🙂 And I really like tyrantrum. Especially it’s name! And it’s really great that pokemon gain exp from assisting in a capture now. And I’m sad the overworld won’t be in 3D ;( I really like the 3D feature..Ocarina of time was awesome. All well. I guess that will just make the next game better when they probably have a fully 3D world! I wish we would get an ice type version of spore that would 100% freeze an opponent. That’d be epic.

  • Agustinlobos123

    Sweet honey ice tea I fell in in love with both of them.

  • hyperkitty

    So I read the interview on polygon article. If Game Freak is including ALL the pokemon in the game, I guess there would be no re-makes of R/S/E?

    Also I really want to know if we don’t have to use pokemon as HM Slaves. As they said “Everything will be available from the start” for some reason I interpreted that phase as getting tools/equipment that that enable you to get through the game Like cutting tools, surfboard, and a torch. That would be glorious. XD I know that is illogical but that is what came to my mind when I read that,

    • We’ve already seen you still ride and fly on your Pokemon… so…

      • hyperkitty

        No, as you still relying on a pokemon to do those things. So they were practically ‘slaves’. Though if they are pokemon you can rent without taking up space in your party I wouldn’t mind that aspect. XD

  • hyperkitty

    Does this mean the PokeMart will be separated? I didn’t like how they combined the Pokecentre and mart into.one in Gen 5 …and I from what i read, them seem they are combining the boutique too. Its like a Pokemon Wal-Mart. Nuuuu

    • PercyEspeon

      I found it convienient. I didn’t have to go into two separate buildings. Laziness!

    • No they are all together along with the boutique. I mean they are likely getting rid of the whole top floor because they are pointless now that there is the PSS so they have more room to add yet another facility. I am looking forwards to seeing the new Center’s design.

      • hyperkitty

        Drat. I like how the PokeMart was seperate as it made it more town town, so that adds to the charm in my opinion, same if the boutique was in a separate building too. Though if they execute the ‘Wal-Mart- style PokeCenter really well, they really dedicate each area well then I should learn to accept it. 😛

        • Suicunesol

          I liked how they were separate too. Pokemart had its own theme too, which you can’t hear anymore.

          Also, Pokemon Centers have a place where you can change clothes, but there are also separate places to buy clothes like a Department Store.

  • Beartic

    Imagine if these two fossiles are bigger than Waillord?!

  • Worbinator

    Totally OUTRAGEOUS.
    Now I can’t choose between this two magnificent Pokémon fossils

  • PercyEspeon

    This made my decision much harder. I definitely know I’m getting Amaura. That evo is FABULOUS! But I’m not sure about Tyrunt for my other game

    In a portuguese interview Hironobu Yoshida (the grafic designer of GF) said:

    ” My favourite pokemon is Froakie. This is my choise because I like how it evolves. When you will start playing you will be able to see it yourself. I think the evolution is spectacular and I hope…(don’t know here what he says)”
    Can someone who know the language do the right and full traslation??
    P.s. If Froakie is the designer favourite new pokemon then it will be awesome!!!!

    • Reece

      I think it’s along the lines of ‘hope everyone will have the same opportunity’….?

    • kurowasan

      You got the translation right. That last sentence seems like it wasn’t finished, it lacks something (it even lacks a period).

      I find it interesting that Masuda says there might be a easier way to get shinies in XY.

      • kurowasan

        Another interesting bit Masuda told was that there will be great variety in the pokémon that can be found in the wild and the idea is that each time you enter the tall grass, you find a different pokémon. Also, depending on the color of the flowers in the tall grass, the ratio for the pokémon encounters and their types are different.

    Can we talk about the anime in here… and all the Other info in the other post please…

  • Shiny Trapinch

    And here I was thinking the kalos starters would also get mega evolutions.

  • Sunny

    Sweet, more news while I was in class lol. Well I deff know my new team member is, but also this is some good stuff. I like the features, all though I’m a bit bummed about no mega evos for gen 6 pokemon. But still, this game has me hyped, too bad I already beat GTA V so now I’m once again bored waiting :/

    • RED

      Already? Is it that short?

      • Probably most games are unless they are RPGs. And even some RPGs are short.

      • Sunny

        Well I played it since I got it from the midnight release so yeah, if you are good, its short. But its a GOTY tyoe game so pick it up lol But that asside, this was going to keep me at bay till October 12 for X and Y, hence why I just ran out and purchased Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD lol. But I am reading the eurogamer report, and Masuda said the after story in tis game will be BIG, so hyped 😀

            Another region was turned down by Masuda in the Eurogamer interview sadly. BUT he did not say if the Gen 3 games will get remakes. But he did say all post game will be in Kalos now.

  • jugss

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-09-19-a-new-perspective-how-pokemon-x-and-y-refreshes-the-series

    One
    of the few early story tweaks is that you now receive your first
    Pokémon via a group of friends. (Your choices are tough-shelled grass
    choice Chespin, vulpine fire beastie Fennekin and the frog-like water
    option, Froakie). Your pals accompany you through the game’s initial
    locations, and you don’t meet the game’s Pokémon professor, Augustine
    Sycamore, until after the first gym. It’s at this point you’ll receive
    your Kanto starter, one of Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. You’ll
    also get to battle the professor, too, Masuda hinted.

    • redheadkidd

      thats always been the case since they announced it

    • Reece

      Is it just me who’s gonna let the Kanto starter rot in the box until post-game when I’m filling in the Pokedex?

      • Sable

        Well, I will actually, but that’s because I want to run an all Dark Team, so none of them would fit that

        • Reece

          I just wanna use all Kalos gen VI Pokemon, keeps it exciting

          • Desume

            Same here

          • Sable

            I definitely will use as many new Kalos dark types as possible before using older ones.

          • same. every gen I use a team of specifically that region’s Pokemon.

            I am really struggling with a team of 6 pokemon this gen though, they are too many good ones I want to use 🙁

  • Dude-e

    http://pokebeach.com/scans/fossil/2-articuno.jpg
    LoL, hipster Articuno had freeze dry before it was cool
    Credit to pokebeach for pointing it out

    • regidudeam

      So is freeze dry like sleep power but freezing?

      • Sable

        No, Freeze Dry does damage, it’s an actual attack. An Ice attack that curiously does Super Effective damage on Water, and it can freeze, but no where has it been confirmed it 100% freezes.

        • regidudeam

          Gotcha thanks for the clarification!

        • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

          I don’t understand why they didn’t modify Ice type to be super effective on water type anyway.

          Is there any chance that this could of been omitted or missed off the new type chart? Risk of GF trolling?

          • Suicunesol

            I think that would make Ice types overpowered. They hardly need the offensive buff.

          • Obelisk Dialga

            My theory is that ice melts in water, but that makes the water colder. If Ice were to be super effective against Water, it would’ve had to be called ‘Cold’ Type or something, because ice and water are equals in real life. Like I said before with my theory, they affect the other. The only reason I think a real-life reason for why types match up is because Fire beats Grass, etc….

      • Michael Martin

        It’s a damaging move that’s super effective on ester types also causes freeze

    You know… I almost think that these two should have been in Gen V. Because, Tyrantrum there is PERFECT for Drayden to use as his signature Pokemon, and Aurorus really looks like something Iris would have used in her champion battle, in place of lapras or archeops.

  • Michael Martin

    For once fosile pokemon I would liek to own.

  • TalesOtaku21

    Wow I’m getting swarmed with all these blogs, interviews, and reveals. .__. Would PokeJungle be able to provide links to all of these interviews? Apparently Eurogamer, IGN, and Polygen all had them and I’m getting confused, like I’m missing something.

    Something cool I read is that there are different encounter rates depending on the color of the flowers. That makes sense considering there are apparently a TON of Pokemon, old and new, in the game. Masuda also said that leveling and raising Pokemon was made easier so that the game remains fast paced and dynamic to keep the attention of players, rather than letting players get bored. Good idea!

    • Sable

      Probably why we now get EXP for capturing Pokemon as well, to help keep up this speed.

    • TheRece25

      Great They Went ALL OUT For These Games! =D

      • Daniel Rojas

        Still haven’t decided!? I’ve been “reading you struggle” in all articles xD

    • Sazando

      Not sure which i like better. I like that they’ve both got unique typings, cool designs, and they’re likely going to be strong since they will probably evolve around lv.40.
      In terms of game-play however, there are a few more reasons why i’m leaning towards Amaura. One is because Tyrantrum will be weak to many types (ex. ice, fairy, fighting, water, grass, ground, dragon) while Aurorus has 2 fewer (fire, fighting, water, ground, steel). Amaura will also have a new ability allowing it to convert normal type attacks to Ice type (thereby getting STAB from some of the most powerful moves like Hyper Beam). Meanwhile the T-rex’s have stronger jaw moves :/ And finally its new move Freeze Dried, is not only able to deal normal STAB damage with the chance to freeze, but it’s also super-effective on water types, taking away one of its weaknesses if it has enough speed.
      If Aurorus has decent stats he may become OP.

      • Andmo

        Your info is wrong. Tyrantrum is not weak to grass or water. It would be weak to steel, fighting, ground, fairy, and dragon. Aurorus would be weak to fighting (4x), steel (4x), ground, grass, and water. Yes Aurorus still has less weaknesses (5 vs 6), but it has more 4x weaknesses. Fighting has become a common type after last gen and with fairies being weak to steel, you can bet there s going to be plenty of steel moves going around. So Aurorus’ 4x weaknesses are going to be everywhere. Still love it though. Don t know which to choose.

        • Andmo

          Forgot ice on Tyrantrum. Whoops!

        • Sazando

          If Aurorus has a good enough speed and special attack stat, i don’t think Water type will be an issue when it picks up Freeze Dried

          • fancyfeast

            Assuming Freeze-Dry isn’t like base 50 power.

          • Sazando

            Well it says Aurorus learns this move, if it was a move learned by both it would have been revealed with its prevo. This means it’s a move learned at level 40+. I don’t think moves gained around that time would be so weak.

        • DDD

          Aurorus would also be weak to rock. since rock does not resist itself. therefore, tyrantrum could land a headsmash for suereffective dammage.

      • gamesaq

        Aurorus is also weak against rock.
        Tyrantrum: dragon, ice, fairy, ground, fighting, steel.
        Aurorus: fighting (4x), steel (4x), water, grass, ground, rock.
        Its 6 vs 6 weaknesses. Equal ground.

        • zeldaoreonerd

          Rock isn’t weak to ice though… so wouldn’t that only do neutral damage?

          • Daniel Rojas

            Bypasses Rock, hits super effective on ice.. so, no.

        • Sazando

          Dragon resists water and grass? Never knew that… guess i just knew better to use ice and dragon type attacks

        • Andmo

          I knew I was forgetting something. Thanks!

      • thekingbrad

        aurorus has 4X weakness to steel and fighting XD

        And yeah just like Andmo mentioned grass and water are neutral

    • BulbaSword

      Wow, 50+ likes. That’s impressive. I hate to jump on the epic beast bandwagon (#HipsterThugLife), but this guy just keeps growing on me. I always choose the opposite Pokemon from my best friend (I got Lunatone, Seviper, Cranidos, Archeops, Omastar, and we never copy starter types), but this guy may ruin it.

  • regidudeam

    Wow I wake up after one day and THIS happens!!! No kalos mega evolutions…..WOW! 2nd disappointment of X and Y!

    • DarkraiLord

      It was very unlikely they would have given Mega Evolutions to the new Pokémon because that would make them look a little overpowered in there first ever appearance, there could always be next gen though.

      • regidudeam

        That’s just an excuse. If gamefreak really wanted they could have easily given kalos pokemon mega evolutions

        • jugss

          lol what if their stats are on the same level as the Megas

          • regidudeam

            Knowing 5th gen, I can actually see that happen considering it is gamefreak we are talking about

        • DarkraiLord

          Think about it rationally though, there are 700+ Pokémon now with them all getting 3D models. They also have to make models for however many Mega Evolutions there are, if they made Mega forms for every Pokémon including the Kalos Pokémon that would be over 1400 3D models they have to make. We don’t know how long to takes them to complete the models but its probably a few days to make them due to poses as movement. That would be too much of a hassle to have to do.

          • regidudeam

            Have you seen how much memory X and Y take up? A 3DS game is 8 GB, X and Y is 1.7GB. Don’t give me that excuse.

          • DarkraiLord

            Put it this way then, would you rather experience the Kalos Pokemon for the first time along with their evolutions to get a feel for them or immediately just bypass all the new final evolutions and go straight to Mega Evolutions to just sweep every team and get through the game in about a few hours?

          • regidudeam

            I do agree about that but I really hope that if they are not included in X and Y in-game, can gamefreak release them by DLC maybe 1~2 years later. I just hope the model files for the X and Y mega evolutions exist in the internal game data

          • DarkraiLord

            They will probably be in either the rumored Pokemon Z or like X2 and Y2 or whatever the third game is, or they will be in the 7th generation and you will just have to wait patiently until then and enjoy the new Pokemon as they are. Also I would find it easier to believe that they won’t give us any Mega Stones in-game (aside from the event Torchic) until post game so we can get better attached to our Pokemon and not have to worry about being overpowered.

          • regidudeam

            In the IGN interview they confirmed that X and Y were based off the dimensions, so Z is the likely 3rd Game. If Z is released that means its has to have connectivity with X and Y. Which basically means that Kalos pokemon already have model files for their mega evolutions in the internal game data in X and Y if kalos mega evolutions were introduced in Z for connectivity to exist. Its just that the mega stones are not obtainable in-game in X and Y. That’s my hypotheisis. They are obviously doing this so Z remains fresh also.

          • Suicunesol

            No 3DS game is 8GB. None of them are even 4GB. Large capacity cartridges are expensive and no games are likely to use 8GB carts in the coming future.

        • Ditto24

          Why would they use a mechanic to bring old Pokemon back to relevance on new pokemon that are currently extremely relevant???

        • TalesOtaku21

          They probably will for future generations, like how BW Pokemon didn’t have dream world abilities.

          • Sable

            BW Pokemon have Dream World Abilities… Some were even shown off, like Darmantian and it’s form changing ability.

          • TalesOtaku21

            I meant not all of them. >_> And I’m getting the feeling that only a select number of older generation Pokemon will even get Mega evolutions, so that’ll be the next thing people complain about.

          • regidudeam

            Shadow Tag Gothitelle??

    • GLITCH’D

      I think they wanted to test the waters with Mega evolutions by having them on older pokemon.

      • regidudeam

        I think the internal game data has kalos mega evolutions. Its just that in X and Y you can’t obtain the mega stones. I’m fine with that as long as they release it later.

  • Sunny

    New professor? I suppose Professor Sequioa is this “Patrice” or is it Sycamore in another language?

  • PokeTev

    Wow I love them both 🙂 Making a team in Pokemon X and Y is going to be
    difficult, I like all the Pokemon revealed so far.

  • kurowasan

    Erm.. sorry for the question, but who is Professor Sequoia? xD

    • Sable

      We don’t know. The IGN article revealing Tyrantrum spoke of this person, talking about delivering a latter for them/to them, something like that. No other details than that.

      • Sunny

        Wait so our Mother sends the letter to him, or is it the other way around. Either way, I believe this Sequoia is maybe our dad lol?

        • Sable

          Would be interesting if we have a parent who is a professor, we have had a father who was a gym leader. You know, it would also just be interesting to have a freaking father again XD

          • Sunny

            LOL Agreed, since in my head at least, I see my father (who is a retied Zoologist IRL) as a Pokemon Professor as well, so it would fill the void….wait…..could this mean in the anime…..we may meet Ash’s father?!?!

          • Sable

            Never know. Apparently this Serena will be a childhood friend of Ash back before he got his Pokemon, so the opportunity is certainly there.

    • Sunny

      Either my guess is he’s the “third” professor of Kalos if the region is split into 3 part due to 3 Pokedex parts. But I have another theory below.

  • CrispyAllDay

    “Professor Sequioa asks you to run an errand at the start of the game: delivering a letter to your mother”
    does this means that there actually is a second professor just like the pokebeach leaker said?

  • TalesOtaku21

    As much as I love the new Pokemon, the gameplay is a huge factor for my general NEED for this game. I’ve been reading the two interviews from Polygen and Eurogamer to pick out the significant details relating to gameplay and environments. Feel free to add any I miss.

    -Pokemon retains its familiar settings with notable tweaks and upgrades. Probably the most noticeable is the updated visuals, including 3D models and environments. The areas are more ‘filled’ and the camera retains its top-down perspective but there are more dynamic camera angles.

    -The games and anime are somewhat influencing each other. The games and animation will flow more together to define what Pokemon are actually like. Hopefully they still leave in lot of headcanon and ambiguity.

    -Accessories include badges, buttons, ribbons, and bows. There is apparently a very large wardrobe as opposed to only a few selections.

    -You travel a lot with your friends. I wish they would let you travel with actual players on your friends list. I would love to go on a ‘Pokemon adventure’ with my brother and boyfriend and other friends.

    -There is a Professor Sequoia, whom apparently has you deliver a letter back to your mom. Perhaps this is the Patrice character PokeBeach rumors mentioned?

    -The amount of Pokemon in the game is very high, although no actual number was defined. Polygen claims all Pokemon will be available but I don’t find that believable.

    -Older generations will appear. Pokemon like Pikachu and Psyduck are available very early game. Pidgey and Caterpie are also apparently catchable.

    -You received a Kanto starter from lazy-ass Sycamore after the first gym.

    -Sycamore also challenges you to a battle at some point. Sycamore is apparently studying Mega Evolutions as his professor-theme. I guess we can assume he will have at least one Mega on his team.

    -Wild Pokemon encounter rates depend on the color of flowers you are in.

    -Mega evolutions are only temporary due to strategy reasons. Since mego evos require a held item, opponents wouldn’t be able to tell if you will mega evo or not (or what you will evolve into in the case with Mewtwo). This means you’ll have to guess your opponent’s strategy.

    -No Kalos Pokemon get mega evolutions.

    -Megas are also not permanent due to the fact that Pokemon would then be too OP.

    -Masuda said that there is importance to the legendaries on the respective box arts. Apparently the versions change in story, gameplay, and exclusive content. I suppose this is similar to how the story changes in Ruby/Sapphire.

    -Polygen claims that Pokemon noises are less like a fax machine but I don’t know if I believe them. Although granted…the noises have gotten better.

    -Polygen is surprised by this but we already knew that running is now default and movement is now faster. Putting it out there for everyone who forgot to be happy.

    -NPCs still talk like morons.

    -Super training, PSS, and Amie are easily accessible on the bottom screen for players to choose whichever fits their gameplay style.

    -No note on how many new Pokemon there will be. I hope they don’t sacrifice the total number of new Pokemon for involvement of older Pokemon.

    -Since catching all of the Pokemon is pretty damn hard due to the sheer number of Pokemon, the focus is not knowing what kind of Pokemon you will run into on your journey. This is why more is better.

    -They’ve wanted to do international releases for a while so we can assume future games will do the same.

    -There is a lot to do post game but it is all in Kalos. Sorry, gen 3 fans.

    -Pokemon was made to be fast paced. Grinding, leveling, and training are now easier (this includes EV training and happiness levels). This is due to the fact that many free games are accessible, so the dev team didn’t want players to get bored. The game aims to be constantly interesting and involving so made the adventure more brisk with still a ton to do.

    -Get your heads out of the gutter: no news on Pokemon on the Wii U. Well, for main titles anyway.

    -POKEMON SNAP? YES PLEASE. Masuda said basically maybe but it would have to have very innovative ideas involved.

    • regidudeam

      Highlight: “The amount of Pokemon in the game is very high. Polygen claims all Pokemon will be available”

      Please be true

      • Daniel Rojas

    • TheRece25

      My theory that Sycamore is only focused on Mega Evolutions seems right and the Poke Professor is a woman

    • GLITCH’D

      “NPCs still talk like morons” made me chortle.

      Also: the fact that Masuda even acknowledged a potential Snap sequel is exceedingly goo news

    • BulbaSword

      One of the interviews said that old Pokemon like Panpour and Zigzagoon are findable in the first hour. I sure hope that the new Pokemon are still the spotlight- I just completed the national dex in Black 2 and have one of every Pokemon (minus events) in my box. I don’t need old ones- I need the new ones!

      That said, the different encounters depending on the flowers is pretty great. Typically I guess there’d be 7 different Pokemon on a single route, but now there could be up to 15 or 20 depending on the flower. This would be a great way to balance out the plethora of old and new Pokemon. If I have to walk in the pink flowers to find my Litleo for hours, I will do it. Also, I hope shaking grass is back- Audino hunting saved me so much time leveling my Pokemon up.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Blaaaah! 🙁
            Also, it seems like PokéJungle seems to have Disqus’ comments on Best (which sorts them by highest upvoted to lowest) by default as apposed to other sites that have it on Newest. So, whenever I visit the comment section on these articles, I can see the avatars, but I like to sort the comments to Newest and when I do that all the avatars end up lookin’ like an empty white square space that says Avatar at the top in blue.
            Basically, whenever I change the comments away from Best or even click on the Community tab, it obliterates all Avatars like Exodia. Once again, blaaaah! 🙁

      • TalesOtaku21

        Your friends get the starters from a professor.

        • Ditto24

          Oh yeah, I know that, I just meant that it’s Tierno who gives them to you, probably on the roof at the same time Trevor gives us the Dex

    Amaura’s freeze dry move is amazing! 4x on swampert, 4x on gyrados, 4x on Kingdra, 4x on ludicolo. I think I’m choosing Amaura despite Tyrunt looking so AMAZING.

    • BulbaSword

      Ooh, Ludicolo. They’re a pain to battle with VGC rules. But, alas, poor Swampert and Quagsire.

      • regidudeam

        Not any more, because people will be using more poison types

    • GLITCH’D

      Ice is making a comeback!

      ~ ice ice baby ~

      • regidudeam

        I’m praying that Articuno gets freeze dry seeing as in the TCG he does…..

        • GLITCH’D

          I want Deibird to make a comeback with a Megaevolution packing FreezeDry! :p

          • regidudeam

            I want mega delibird to get huge power!

    • defensivebastiodon

      How is it 4X on Swampert?

      • regidudeam

        freeze dry is an ice move that does 2x to water and ice is already 2x to ground

        • defensivebastiodon

          Ice moves are neutral to it, and since it’s a move strong against water, wouldn’t that make it just 2X?

          • Sable

            Well, this is based on that it would still do regular ice damage, so it would still be super effective on Ground, and due to it’s attributes, it’s now super effective on Water, so it would be like a Grass attack hitting it instead now, as it’s super effective against both parts.

          • regidudeam

            No, read the news, Freeze dry is a new ice move that is super effective on water types.

          • defensivebastiodon

            It wouldn’t be 4X though. And I read the article. If ice is currently neutral to Swampert because it’s water/ground, the effect would only be 2X due to the water typing.

          • Sable

            It’s neutral on Water/Ground because it’s super effective on Ground, but Water resists Ice. Water would now be weak to Ice as well, so that should make it 4x, because super effective on water, super effective on ground together.

          • defensivebastiodon

            Hm… Maybe… But I still only see the effect kicking in to make the water typing weak

          • regidudeam

            The reason that ice does 2x to swampert is because water resist ice (0.5x) and ice does (2x) to ground. So,
            0.5 x 2 = 1, that’s why it was neutral

            Now ice is super effective to water so it does (2x) and ice does (2x) to ground
            2 x 2 = 4 that’s why its 4x

          • defensivebastiodon

            I still think the effect wouldn’t do that. We will see on the 12.

          • regidudeam

            With your argument, freeze dry’s effect ought to be that it IGNORES water typing. That means freeze dry does neutral to swampert, gyrados, Kingdra, and ludicolo. And it does neutral to water types. That makes no sense! Dual type pokemon are not treated separately from single type pokemon. Thats why electric moves do 4x to gyarados, not 2x because electric moves does 2x BOTH of the types. It compounds.

          • defensivebastiodon

            I never said that it would ignore the water typing. That is the effect of the move to be super effective, Making it super effective against Grass, Ground, Water, and Flying and whatever I left off. You’re saying that the effect ignores the typing and ice will effect it. When Ice is neutral against Water/Ground, it would follow the rule:

            Freeze Dry: This move does super effective damage against water types.

            It will do its usual neutral damage and the effect would kick in, doubling that and giving it 2X the damage. The ground typing would not be effected in any way because that’s mot the water half. The way your belief would work is if
            A) The effect kicked in and did 2X WHILE canceling out the water typing and effecting the secondary typing
            or
            B) They changed the mechanics of the whole idea.

            A moves effect will only affect what it says it will. So!
            Swampert now has two weaknesses: 4X to Grass, and 2X to Freeze Dry due to the effect. Its water typing weakness to the move will have nothing to do with its ground typing. Same goes for other dual typed water types.

            I’m through with this argument. Ice is neutral to Water/Ground. Unless the effect states other wise, it will only bother the water half of the typing.

  • I pray to Arceus that Aurorus doesn’t get blessed with hindering speed 🙁

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Don’t you mean cursed? Lol
      Hindering speed isn’t much of a blessing.

      • lol sorry I was stoned.

        • Claus H. Luíz

          Smokin’ dat Oddish, huh? Lol

          • Skiddo

            D: I love Oddish! DON’T HURT MY ODDISH! D:<

          • lol nah smokin’ that Weedle.

    • GLITCH’D

      Sadly I don’t think sauropods moved too fast, and given that it’s paired with a theropod I think that Aurorus is set to be the slow tank fossil of this generation and Tyrantrum the glass cannon

      • regidudeam

        I also agree, I expect low speed and attack but high special attack, defence, hp and special defence

        • GLITCH’D

          I reckon that the special attack will be rather average out of fear of overempowering it with it’s ability. I’m gonna guess a max sp. Attack of ~270 at lvl. 100 but we’ll see! I always like to be surprised!

          • regidudeam

            I hope freeze dry has BP greater than 80, otherwise its pretty useless.

          • GLITCH’D

            I dunno, I was kind of hoping for a scald-like move for ice pokemon. I think too high a bp will make it too good!

          • regidudeam

            Actually, you maybe onto something! I think scald and freeze dry are variants. Scald will most likely do 2x to ice and have 30% burn. While freeze dry does 2x to water and have 30% freeze. Like counterparts….

          • GLITCH’D

            I didn’t even think about modifying Scald! It’s a good idea though,

          • regidudeam

            Scald seem like the perfect dual type move.

      • 🙁

  • agent0210

    Im really pumped up for this new generation. The pokemon designs are way to better than the previous gen. The fossil pokemon remindh me f dinosaur king and fossil monsters.

  • GLITCH’D

    And with the updated Sugimori image I love Tyrantrum even more! Shaping up to be my favourite fossil of all time and I don’t even know it’s moves yet!

    • regidudeam

      Both of the fossil pokemon look amazing this gen!

      • GLITCH’D

        Yes! I’m usually not fond of one of the fossil evos but this generation has pleasantly surprised me with some very nice designs for both!

    • PercyEspeon

      I agree! It looks way more awesome now that I see it. Although I still like Aurorus more!

  • Claus H. Luíz

    I’ve got some things I wanna show you guys and gals. I guess this’ll be 1 outta 3.

    Not much of a big deal, but looks like some Pokémon coined the move
    Freeze Dry first, Amaura… Wait, but you’re a fossil Pokémon, so maybe…?
    Was Articuno even around back then…? Wha…? I don’t even…?
    Well, officially, Articuno was first.
    Although, official doesn’t mean much to prehistoric creatures anyway…
    Whatevs! You’re still wuvable~♥

    • regidudeam

      There were a couple of moves released in BW that were from TCG many many years back. It makes sense to look to TCG for new attacks if you think about it.

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Yeah, I know. I just wanted to point out that TCG moves do have the potential to become real moves used in the Pokémon games,
        which is great. Freeze Dry is a very welcomed new move. 🙂

    • Shiny Trapinch

      When I was 6 I found that card in a parking lot

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Pretty lucky find. Is Articuno one of your favorites?

        • Shiny Trapinch

          One of my favorite legendaries.

  • Claus H. Luíz

    If there truly is a Legendary Pokémon to represent Z the way Xerneas represents X and Yveltal represents Y (and we all know there will be), would you imagine it to appear like this?
    Introducing, *cough*unofficially*cough* Zidhoggon!

    • Dregoon

      More or less, I belive so.

    • GLITCH’D

      Try saying that 5 times fast!

      Surely Yveltal is a more accurate representation of Nidhog due to its penchant for destruction?

      • Claus H. Luíz

        In a way, true. But, think of it this way…
        If Xerneas represents good as the Life Pokémon and Yveltal represents bad as the Destruction Pokémon, then what would possibly come between them?
        Balance. The Z Pokémon could represent a neutral stance as the Balance Pokémon. Neither good nor bad, but also both. There’s life, there’s death… but somtimes, there’s limbo. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limbo&quot; class="extiw" title="wp:Limbo/<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purgatory&quot; class="extiw" title="wp:Purgatory.

        • GLITCH’D

          I can get on board with a balance pokemon but they will need a way of distinguishing it from Rayquaza in its role

          • Claus H. Luíz

            I can imagine it being more waaay more calm than Rayquaza.
            That dragon was cray-cray. Always rampaging.
            This Z dragon could have more of a “don’t bother me, and I won’t bother you” type of personality. Its not picking a side.
            Its just doing its duty as the Balance Pokémon.

        • Reece

          I always thought that to balance Life & Destruction, you have to have Decay…?

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Ew. Decay makes me think of undead/zombies
            and that’s not a great balance! 🙁
            But by balance, I meant something to keep life and death in check and keep them equal in power. Think of a Libra scale.

          • TalesOtaku21

            I don’t think he meant decay in that sense. When the body decays, it gives life to other things. For example, an animal’s physical body decays to give nutrients to the soil and plants. You don’t really need a balance as it is already a perfect cycle.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Not in the Pokémon world, it’s not.
            In the real world, no one or thing controls life or death.
            In the Pokémon world, there’s all sorts of crazy powers going around that could definitely use some controlling every now and then so things won’t get too chaotic.

  • Milotic4Ever

    *Saw Amaura’s and Tyrunt’s evolution* *Officially lost my sheet*

    • Sable

      I’m planning on training both at some point for use, Aurorus because it has interesting aspects I think could be very cool in battle, and Tyrantrum because it’s friggen awesome. Also I’ve been meaning to say this, but Pyroar was ‘leaked’ last wednesday, and then was officially revealed last week from this day… and then on today, Thursday, we get these two guys revealed… I’m already calling we are getting something next week on Thursday.

      • GLITCH’D

        I hope you’re right! I think I’m falling into a state where I need to feed on a constant flow of news to keep going XD

        • regidudeam

          Seriously, I want news like this every week, other wise I won’t be able to survive until the 12th

        • Sable

          Just, two weeks in a row we got something on Thursday? It may just be evolutions of stuff we know about, but I don’t see that being a coincidence. Any guesses for next week? I’m thinking either Helioptile, to go along with Pyroar, or maybe Clauncher and Skrelp evos. Depends on what pattern they want to use.

          • GLITCH’D

            Looking at the current “trend”, it seems to be evos for gen VI pokemon so I’m hoping for a helioptile evo (to get another reptile into the team!) but I think that on the Thursday directly before the release day we’ll get final starter evos.

  • regidudeam

    Am I the only one exited about Wi-fi battles that lower your ranking if you disconnect!!! This gen, I think I want to get more into competitive double battles!

  • Milotic4Ever

    You see!! Dual-typed moves on one type doing damage of another type! That Freeze Dry… *realizes Milotic’s Water-type* UUUUGGHH, WHY?!! It’s cool , but WHY?

    • TheRece25

      Possibly his is what they meant.. nice catch! ; ]

  • EarthenWarrior

    Tyrantrum is a savage beast that radiates power and supremacy.
    My kind of Pokemon

    yet a lot of common weaknesses
    Steel
    Ground
    Fighting
    Ice
    Fairy
    but nonetheless TOTAL BADASS

    • regidudeam

      With tremendous power and badassness comes many weaknesses unfortunately

    • Sable

      Well, when you combine something with rock, a lot of weaknesses are bound to happen.

    • GLITCH’D

      DOESN’T MATTER, HAVE REX

    • TheRece25

      What are its strengths?

      • Sable

        Well, Rock is a Fantastic Attacking type for one, Dragon, while nerfed thanks to Fairy, still will be able to hit a lot of things pretty strong, just needs to watch out for fairy switch ins, it’s getting the bite upgrade, so it should get plenty of fang moves that will be buffed considerably that it can use and give coverage, It will get a Special Defense boost in Sandstorm, so it will be more durable that way, as I bet a lot of it’s counters will be in the special department… Not a lot of resistances though, the grass and water resistances are cancelled out, though it keeps Electric and Fire resistance, the latter doing absolutely nothing to it. Of course will resist Normal, flying, and poison as well

        • TheRece25

          Super eff against?

          • Sable

            Well it’s super effective on Ice, Flying, Fire, and Bug, and only Ground, Fighting, and Steel resist it, and combine it with dragon, the ground and fighting can be hit by that generally speaking. But Stone Edge is known that it can hit a lot of things very very hard. Fire Fang buffed by Strong Jaw would help out against Steel types as well.

          • regidudeam

            rock does 2x to flying, fire, ice, bug
            Plus he’s definitely getting earthquake so add 2x to electric, steel, poison, rock. Then Crunch so add 2x to ghost, psychic. He’ll probably get fire fang, ice fang and thunder fang …..yeah
            HE’S AMAZING!!!!

          • PokeTev

            Don’t forget its super effective against dragon too!

          • regidudeam

            Plus Hard Jaw ability….can he get anymore amazing!!! xD

          • PokeTev

            I know right?! Lets hope he has great stats and doesn’t disappoint like Rampardos.

          • regidudeam

            Please be fast…..or not have paper thin defenses

          • thekingbrad

            I pray its not Rampardos

    This is great! But I don’t want october yet, I have no money! :[

    • regidudeam

      Do you have a 3DS?

      • EGG

        Yes, but not even half the money to get ONE version.
        I want to get both, as Masuda said they might have different stories and gameplay things.

        • regidudeam

          I agree. I’ve never gotten both version in pokemon before, but I definitely feel that X and Y are drastically different so I wanna get both. My plan is to get X first…and figure out all the details about gen 6, and then get Y later.

          • CL

            I might do that. I definitely want X, but also Y! I will definitely get one first and then the other later :3

          • EGG

            My plan was to get both at the same time, but that won’t happen! hahahh

          • regidudeam

            I can’t play 2 games at once xD.

          • Sable

            You know, these are the first games I’m considering getting both versions before.. I techinically bought White and Black, but Black wasn’t for me, though I ended up having it back for awhile because he didn’t have a DS ,though he ended up taking it back. You know, on top of that, I also wish we’d maybe expand upon what they did in White and Black, and have different Gym Leaders in each game more of a thing, with different types even.

    • TheRece25

      Lol I feel ya kinda… =I

    • PokeTev

      Same here! lol

    • MegaLucario98

      me too, but i want pokemon x and y be released on october because im going to find a way to earn money!

  • John McNamara

    Is anyone else surprised it took THIS long to invent a Tyrannosaurus Rex Pokémon?

    • MegaLucario98

      i hoped for a T-rex pokemon since gen 2. 😛

    • GLITCH’D

      Yes XD though my theory is that they wanted to go with the lesser known invertebrate fossils first to make them stand out from the other pokemon and seem a little alien. Now that fossil pokemon are the norm, it’s easier to go with more conventional, widely-known fossils

    • Jordin

      Actually it could have been made a long time ago but never used until now.

  • MegaLucario98

    i hope tyrantrum will be 6-7m long!

    • Sable

      Based on the model, I really doubt it. It’s physically larger in terms of being thick, but it’s about on par with Aurorus, who height is 8’10, and based on that we can guage it’s length, and Tyrantum is only a little bit longer, and maybe a bit shorter, or at the same height.

      • MegaLucario98

        i hope he will be at least 3m long, but he’s still a badass if he is short.

        • Sable

          Well, length wise that might be fairly accurate, but I’m fairly certain they will show it’s size stat by it’s height, and based on screenshots, it looks like Tyrantum will be 7’8″ to 8’1″ or so. But it does look longer than Aurorus is tall, so 3 meters long from snout to tail may be right.

          • MegaLucario98

            i have BIG hopes for this pokemon!

  • GLITCH’D

    I’ve just realised that the spikes on Tyrantrum’s tail look like stalagmites!

  • pokemon ´german

    Tyrantrum is so amazing i hope his german name is good 😀

    • Sable

      Well, you can always nickname him Tyrantrum if it’s not quite as good heh. But there are some pretty awesome terms that could be used, one that comes to mind is Kaiser could maybe be used, I think that would be pretty fitting.

    • GLITCH’D

      German names are always epic!

  • TheRece25

  • Me: A Pokemon Fan

    I am so very in love with amaura, it is amaaaazing!

    • MegaLucario98

      both of them are amazing in my opinion. 😀

  • Ultron

    I think it’s the way the mouth and jaw are shaped in the official art that make me not like tyrantrum as much. It’s tongue is weird looking and the jaw seems at a weird angle to me. I still like it, but I think I prefer Aurorus even though I prefer tyrunt to amaura.

  • Chicolombia

    Can we all agree that there are the best fossil Pokemon ever?!

    • GLITCH’D

      Amen to this!

    • Jordin

      I think we can all agree that these are the best Pokemon games ever~

      • Dregoon

        Tell that to the Genwanners though I’m prettysure it’ll just go out the other ear lol.

        • Chicolombia

          They can cower in fear over the epicness of Tyrantrum for all I care.

          • Dregoon

            LMFAO Good one. Couldn’t said it better myself

        • BulbaSword

          Aerodactyl still may be my favorite, but this guy is gaining on him and Archeops.

          • Bonnie

            Aerodactyl had another chance with his mega!

        • Prince Azulon

          LOL. True I bet they lost their hearing.

      • Prince Azulon

        Very true.

    • PokeTev

    • Prince Azulon

      Yes!

    • Owen Lawson Howell III

      Really good? Yes.
      Best? Debatable.

    • Zack Phoenix

      For me personally, every generation had exactly one fossil pokemon I liked, except 3 where I liked both.

  • Prof. Sequioa? It’s a typo. It’s Sycamore still! You guys should change it!

    • TheRece25

      Where did you see it was just a typo?

    • Sable

      Are you sure? It’s from the IGN article, and it still says Professor Sequoia there.

    • TalesOtaku21

      You have one too, it’s Sequoia. 😛

      I wouldn’t think so. It seems you don’t even meet Sycamore until after the first gym.

  • Jordin

    Since the official site has to update along with IGN and those websites I think we can expect a new trailer soon with more Pokemon and more details ^.^

    • MegaLucario98

      maybe tomorrow we will have a new trailer!

    • TalesOtaku21

      With release around the corner they’ll be teasing all kinds of news.

      • Jordin

        I hope they have more Pokemon in store and every week or so they “accidentally” leak it.

  • TCMets

    http://www.gamesradar.com/pokemon-xy-why-director-masuda-himself-answers/
    Click on the picture of the starters to read that part of the interview. Pretty much confirmation of the Knight, Mage, and Thief theme 😀

  • Guest

    See a graphical update? (It is Lumoise City. Yet, the areas in each screenshot is not the same).

  • See a graphical update? X & Y is looking good! (It is Lumoise City. Yet, the areas in each screenshot is not the same).

    • Jordin

      Yeah the first one was when the game was still in beta. Obviously they would be improving over the past few months 😛

      • BulbaSword

        Darn, the colors look less clear in the new one. I like the old ones more, but then again, this picture is a bit fuzzy. Then again, I guess the new one does look a bit more realistic. Gah, who cares how much better it looks- it’s still tons better than the old gens!

        • Jordin

          Try telling that to “Genwunners” 🙁

          • BulbaSword

            Urgh, I know! I feel like my expectations don’t even exist for some games anymore. It’s like, no matter how badly they could screw this up, it’ll still look better than the old ones. Same with Smash Bros- even if they took out my favorite character (PT), at least they’re making another one!

        • blaze

          It’s just a picture, i’m positive that it will look good on the actual 3ds screen

          • BulbaSword

            True- 3DS games tend to look pretty bad in pictures but great on the system. I’ve never played a bad looking 3DS game.

    • Prince Azulon

      Amazing improvement.

  • Pandas2NaKed

    Has anybody seen a game play video pertaining to this new info?

    • Jordin

      Nope but we should expect one soon maybe even revealing new Pokemon in the trailer!

      • Pandas2NaKed

        Sounds good to me! The wait is killing me! I have been playing these games from day one and i have not been this excited since the rumors of a new pokemon named pikablu!

  • thekingbrad

    Dang I wonder how tall Tyrantrum is

    • Sable

      Based on these screenshots, it’s quite a bit shorter than Aurorus, so I’d speculate 7’5 at the least to 8′ at the most.

  • TalesOtaku21

    Mr. Masuda set us straight, “So the X and Y actually come from the two axes, the X and the Y axes,” Masuda said. “These are used as kind of a way to express different ways of thinking–different opinions–and it’s actually tied into the themes of the games, which is expressed through certain differences in the story between the two versions. So there will be slight differences to the story in X and Y. It also ties into the message we want to convey with these games: Even though X and Y are representing these two different ways of thought, there’s a point where they overlap. So we really want to convey the message of finding these points that we as humans share in common, rather than focusing on the differences we have.”

    I have a feeling these stories are gonna be amazing.

    • regidudeam

      And that the Z axis is eminent…..

      • TalesOtaku21

        If they did, most likely the entire game would be 3D considering what the Z axis is. But I don’t know how it would tie into the story they are hinting at.

        B/W focused more on the differences of people’s opinions…truth and ideals conflicting, Team Plasma abusing people’s emotions, what was ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, black and white thinking. X and Y seem more…3-dimensional (hah c wat i did thr), diving deeper into the thoughts and emotions of creatures. Interesting.

        Xerneas also seems to represent eternity, while Yvetal destruction. Perhaps Team Flare do desire eternal youth? Or maybe they want to destroy all that they deem unworthy?

        Or both?

        • GLITCH’D

          3 dimensions? HUEEERNN CNFIRMD

        • BulbaSword

          Hmm, eternal youth has to do with beauty, and they said that beauty a key theme of the Kalos region. Hmm…

        • Jordin

          The Fountain of Youth!

        • CL

          I have been thinking about it and those two ideas are probably the most accurate.

          From what we’ve seen so far with Team Flare they originally want money, probably as a means to an end.

          We know they are scientists, again money could be funding some machine they are trying to make. Aswell as that fact that they have cybernetic goggle things lol

          I think they could be trying to harness the power of the two Pokemon and using it on the Kalos Region.

          And if you see in the Anime trailer with the Garchomp, it is going around destroying things randomly AND has a red ring around its neck. Now I dunno if Garchomp have this normally but it may be the work of Team Flare; sending Pokemon on rampages in places they see unfit to be in a “Perfect World” ?

    • ForceUpdateSani

      We are all geniuses we knew this when they were revealed in January good job homes!

  • similarity

    I thought seeing the fossil Pokemon’s evolutions would make it easier for me to decide on one. I was mistaken 🙁

  • TheNintendoChip

    I’m not sure if anyone else saw this yet..but I’ll put it here anyways.

    “Update (11:30 AM): With thanks to KurowaSan for the translation, an interview with Eurogamer has revealed that there will be a greater variety of wild Pokemon in the grass. The idea is that each time you enter tall grass, they want you to find a different Pokemon. Also, depending on the color of the flowers in the tall grass, the ratio of the Pokemon encounters and their types are different. Masuda also stated that there might be an easier way to obtain Shiny Pokemon, while Yoshida said that they wanted to make a Shiny Pokemon’s color stand out more.”

    • regidudeam

      Easier way to obtain shiny pokemon……YOU HAVE MY ATTENTION!!!!

    • Reece

      Easier Way to obtain shinies? Well they’re practically giving them out for events

    • HikaruAyame

      Make shiny stand out more??? THANK YOU!!!

      • regidudeam

        They had better make Shiny Garchomp more noticable

        • TCMets

          It’s a tragedy what happened to shiny Garchomp.

          • regidudeam

            Shiny Gible and Gabite looked so cool…..and then facepalm

          • BulbaSword

            So much of this. I loved getting the Shiny Gible from Benga, but I was fearing its evolution.

          • Sable

            Garchomp obviously had no use for Shiny colors, he was good as is. *joking*

          • BulbaSword

            I just finished training my Shiny Garchomp. I’d love for him to look even better.

          • TalesOtaku21

            No it’s different, it is slightly darker than normal.

          • Sable

            uh yeah, I know. That’s why I said JOKING. But it’s such a negligible change that you may not even notice outside of the sparkle effect. Which is the entire point. And, it’s a common joke. That Garchomp’s shiny form looks basically exactly the same because Garchomp is perfect already.

        • TalesOtaku21

          If it was pitch black like Charizard, it would be fine. Right now it’s like…navy blue.

      • GLITCH’D

        No more garchomp-esque shinies!

    • ForceUpdateSani

      Yay! Happy day! *clap* *clap*

    • Skiddo

      This is gonna be fun! >:D

  • AdamH06

    Tyrantrum, Xerneas, Honedge, Pangoro, Noivern and Frogadier are my team so far! 😀

    • redheadkidd

      Y team: Frogadier Honedge Pyroar Tyruntrum Helioptile Malamar
      X Team: Braxien Furfrou Sylveon Aurorus

      • AdamH06

        Oh yeah I forgot I’m getting both!

    • BulbaSword

      Ha, and Tyrantrum was probably added either today or a week ago. Imagine what’ll happen in a week if they reveal someone even more cool than the guys on your list… You’ll have some real problems!

      I for one haven’t planned anything besides my X team having Chespin, Charizard (one of my favorite Pokemon of all time) and Litleo (I love Lion King) and the Y one having Fennekin. Planning too much will spoil it!

      • redheadkidd

        only thing i changed is tyruntrum for noivern

  • TCMets

    Wow, tomorrow is already the 20th. September is almost over….this is a very good thing 🙂

    • Jordin

      Wow! That was fast O.O

      • TCMets

        Time flies!

        • Jordin

          Like a Beautifly!

    • BulbaSword

      As of tomorrow, I’m only one week away from my red Pokemon 3DS XL. I’m so hyped for it. Then it means 2 weeks and a day… gah!

      • TCMets

        That 3DS looks awesome! I like it better than the blue.

        • BulbaSword

          I’ve already got a red 3DS, but I love its colors so much that I really don’t mind upgrading to the new one that’s also red. I considered blue because it’s different, but then again, you can’t have too much of a good thing.

          • Archeops127

            I got the Special Pikachu 3DS XL Best money spent!

    • Desume

      The worst is going to be the last few days before X and Y’s release. I had a nightmare last night that I fell asleep to long and all the copies of X and Y were sold out even though I pre-ordered them and my internet was out so I couldn’t look up stuff on it.

      • TCMets

        Thank God it was only a dream!!

      • BulbaSword

        I’m so paranoid when it comes to preorders. I’m just expecting to go to Gamestop next week and see that they don’t have my Pokemon 3DS xl in stock. I’m even thinking waiting till after 10 am to leave campus just so that I can call ahead of time to see if they’re in stock instead of wasting a 40 minute round trip on the bus instead of getting there when it opens. And now I’m afraid that Target won’t have my Y in stock when I get there at 8 am on the 12th. Fire Emblem Awakening ruined me!

        • Desume

          I pre-ordered both versions and a guide on Amazon with 1 day ordering so I won’t get the games till Monday 🙁

        • Sunny

          No worries, big hits are almost always in stock at label retailers. I got my copy of Y paid off at GS and have yet to face one preorder that didn’t come out on release day there. But I HIGHLY recommend not to preorder these games at Newegg, as my initial order would have come on October 21st -o-. Everywhere else is fine.

        • regidudeam

          Yeah but I think Intelligent Studios never expected FE Awekning to be so popular so they made fewer shipments. I’m pretty sure GF expects X and Y to be extremely popular so it might be less likely to sell out.

          • BulbaSword

            That’s true- I’ve just never pre-ordered from Target before… I’ve always pre-ordered Gamestop and they’ve always been great.

      • GLITCH’D

        I have similar fear that my preorder will arrive 3 days late! If it is late, I’m just going to go out to the nearest store and buy it!

  • Ar91

    The kalos pokemon better be stronger then the previous gens to compensate with the fact that they won’t get mega evolutions :S.

    • Jordin

      WHHAATT!? So that means my Quilladin evolution won’t Mega Evolve!!??

      • Ar91

        nope. maybe in the next generation of games..

      • TCMets

        At least not in X and Y. I’m sure it will in the future. Gives us a chance to appreciate the Kalos Pokemon, before they go improving them via Megas 🙂

        • Jordin

          Is it time yet?

          • Jordin

            Maybe ShinyXatu knows.

          • TCMets

            Time for what?

          • Jordin

            Time for RANDOM DANCING (jk)

            Time for them to reveal their Mega Evolutions!

          • TCMets

            Nope lol. Probably not till Z/Sequels, or the 7th generation.

    • BulbaSword

      At least we’re only allowed one Mega per team. That way, any opponents with Megas will be easier to beat if we use a team of all Kalos Pokemon instead of battling a team of all Megas with no Megas. It seems odd to steal the spotlight away from the new Pokemon by not allowing them to Mega Evolve.

  • Jordin

    So the starters aren’t going to get Mega Evolutions…

    We are getting Kanto starters first instead of the Kalos starters!? WUUT!?
    My first Pokemon from Gen 6/X & Y isn’t going to be Chespin…

    • BulbaSword

      No, we get the Kanto starters later.

      Keep calm and carry Repels.

    • TCMets

      No lol, we get the Kalos starters first. We don’t get the Kanto starters until we get to Lumiose City.

      • Jordin

        That’s what I thought but I read a post saying that it was heavily hinted at that we get the Kanto starters first…

        • TCMets

          Nopers xD Chespin will be your first Pokemon in Kalos! ^_^

          • Pokemets

            Froakie is the beeeeest muwhahaha

          • TCMets

            CHESPIN! <3

          • Pokemets

            Must…have…all…

        • Desume

          No you get the Kanto starters when you meet Professor Sycamore sometime after the first gym so you’ll be stuck with your Kalos starter and the start of game Pokemon until you get past the first gym.

          • Jordin

            I know it was just heavily hinted at in interview 🙁

          • Sable

            The only thing I saw in the interview was that they were originally NOT going to give us the Kanto Starters. They decided to after they saw the designs for the Mega evolutions. Either way, just get it out of your mind. Kalos Starters are our starting Pokemon, end of discussion, nothing to worry about.

          • Jordin

            Thank you for the clarification 😀

          • dewkage

            it does not matter to me when we get the kanto starters i am only using kalos pokemon for my run though

      • Dregoon

        Hopefull they’ll be level 10 and NOT level 5.

  • ShayminSkyflower

    Yes tyrunts eco it looks awesome

  • Desume

    I made up a stat prediction for Tyrantrum
    Hp: 110
    Atk: 140
    Def: 60
    Sp Atk: 40
    Sp Def: 55
    Spd: 105
    Total: 510
    No idea if this will be even close but I felt like it would be a somewhat bulky, speedy sweeper with massive attack.

    • Dregoon

      I’ll say at least 495 since that’s the same for every other starter except for Aerodactyl(515) and Archeops(567) but I’d prefer 510 over 495 and those stats seem plausible

      • BulbaSword

        Archeop’s terrible ability may factor into its better stats though. What if Tyrantrum had less Attack and more Def and Sp. Def and then its ability boosted its biting attacks by a worthwhile amount?

    • regidudeam

      That looks like a Darmanitan Clone

      • Desume

        I gave it slightly higher speed and Hp but they both are meant to have the same function/mold hitting as hard as possible with physical attacks, I may have overshot the Bst a bit too.

        • regidudeam

          I thinks its a bit too high. But I do agree if it’s exactly a Darmanitan clone

    • GLITCH’D

      I would want it to have a similar or higher attack than Rampardos given its bite strength. Lacking this though, the above seems reasonable, especially as it seems likely to receive Dragon Dance.

    • thekingbrad

      I really don’t want it to have terrible defenses like rampardos…

    • ForceUpdateSani

      Hmmm a glass sword… idk if I’d like another one of those.

    • Fen

      I’d be willing to bet the HP will be much lower. The speed and def would probably be boosted a bit. It’s pretty similar to my guestiment though 🙂

      HP: 70
      Atk: 140
      Def: 80
      Sp.A: 40
      Sp.D:60
      Spd: 120
      Total: 510

      • regidudeam

        120 base speed, 140 base attack, 80 defence ????? Even archeops is weaker than that and it had defeatist

        This is more likely

        Hp: 85
        Atk: 135
        Def: 80
        Sp Atk: 40
        Sp Def: 70
        Spd: 85
        Total: 495 (like most fossils)

  • Dregoon

    Arghhhhh. I don’t know which Fossil to get. I may get Amaura since chance are there will be a better Dragon type.

  • Claus H. Luíz

    Apparently, there’s more than one new Prof. around this generation.
    IGN stated “…the game seemed determined to get me out
    and catching critters as soon as possible. I headed to town, met a group
    of friends/rivals, picked my starter Pokémon, took a letter from
    Professor Sequoia back to my mom, and I was running off with a
    satchelful of potions and Pokeballs.”

    Prof. Sequoia might be that mystery Holocaster woman who looks to be introducing Pokémon Global Link to us. We’ve been hearing names fly around (like Patrice from the PokéBeach rumors) and hearing there’s gonna be more than one professor, yet we’ve still haven’t gotten anything concrete official. Well, seeing as Professor Sycamore has been given a first name in English, I’m gonna go ahead and put the names together and say she will possibly be known as Professor Patrice Sequoia. She could also be making an appearance in the anime. I remember someone posting a pic from one of the anime trailers that showed what looked to be a leg of a woman wearing heels next to the starter Pokémon, though I can’t find that pic. :/
    What’cha think?

    • Claus H. Luíz

      I don’t think Disqus added my pics. (•_•’)
      EDIT: Does my first comment have 3 pics, cause I can’t see them? 😐

      • TCMets

        I can’t see pics. I can’t see avatars. But I do agree with the name and everything.

        • Claus H. Luíz

          Yeah. I’m pretty damn sure I had the pics ready to be posted along with my comment. So, now Disqus is making our own pics invisible? Then again, I was able to see my other comments with pics right after I posted them.
          Guess it was a hiccup in the system…

      • dewkage

        refresh the page

        • Claus H. Luíz

          That shouldn’t matter when you post the pics yourself from your computer. Disqus is just being a buggy bitch to deal with for me, TCMets, and a few other peeps. :

          • TCMets

            I asked Disqus on Twitter what the problem is. Waiting for response. I did find out that there will be a new Disqus on October 15th, so potentially this can be the result of the preparations?

          • Claus H. Luíz

            A new Disqus is fine as long as its user friendly and user nice-to-look-at. I just wish we didn’t have to suffer with this annoyance. >:[

  • TheRece25

    OMG I JUST GOT $959 back from school!!! Gas Money! Ps4.. Most importantly .. 3DS XL and Pokémon X! YAY!! XD I was just sitting here depressed too

    • multipops

      wow why did they give you the money

      • Sable

        School Refund, probably, whatever scholarship or grant Race got, there was a surplus, and that surplus was given back.

    • Desume

      I wish my school gave me money 🙁

    • Sunny

      Damn lucky, I only got back $30 fro my school lol

      • ForceUpdateSani

        I got like …. 7 bucks… man am I bad at saving money or what XD

    • Milotic4Ever

      I’m still waiting for my financial aid disbursement. :/

      • Sable

        … Still? Wow that sucks. When did your school start? middle of August, or beginning of september? That might play into it… maybe.

        • Milotic4Ever

          It should come by Monday of the upcoming week.

    • Fen

      ugh…government money for your recreational devices, to be honest being a working tax-payer and student, this pisses me off especially since I am working, received many scholarships, and still have to take out loans for school, when other people don’t actually have to allocate numerous entitlements for academic expenses. It really diminishes some of the merit of social programs. Further, for those who receive these funds and spend responsibly, this type of behavior makes them look bad.

      I don’t receive grants nor money from parents, because I am a self-sufficient adult. Being a mooch on society isn’t something to brag about, and these behaviors collectively have much to do with the terrible entitlement budgeting issues of the Federal Government.

      • shitzon

        It’s not like it’s his fault when he gets money oô I know, life is hard and stuff, but what should he do? Use the money as a wallpaper?

        • TheRece25

          Lol YES I was gonna say a few.. choice words of my own, Words he wouldn’t like because he doesn’t know me but when I would have got done with him He Would Have! haha BUT I like your wording better XD

        • Fen

          books, computers, next semester’s tuition, food, living expenses, professional clothes, computer programs, school supplies…I can go on and on.

          why should I pay to supplement the funding for his recreational devices?

          Really, life is hard? And, Therefore, we should give someone money for recreational electronics?

          • TheRece25

            Wow My Scholarship Money is for my OWN USE.. If they wanted me to use It on Specific things then they would have made it so it could be only used in those ways…
            I can’t help your having an apparently Sh**ty life and not making good decisions with your money that you have none to use for the things you want
            With a personality like that I couldn’t care less how far you get Really haha your pathetic and I KNOW you would never even think to Dare say this to my face Offline, which is why I have No Respect for you
            Am I supposed to be upset I’m better off than you? If so I’m NOT! lol
            Plus Some of my money is Going to Feeding my family and gas for school and to Church (I suggest you get more of this) and local street beggars
            Take Psychology, the class will teach you that there is more than meets the eye, As in Of course I didn’t tell you about the more boring activities this money will help me with on a site like this, In fact I think X and Y is trying to teach people a Similar Topic.. What do ya know..
            Learn to not talk so much.. more people may like you
            Have a good day.. or bad.. Really Couldn’t care less

          • Fen

            Say what you want, you are spending tax payer money on recreational devices.

          • shitzon

            It’s his money. Noone but him has the right to decide what to use it for.

          • Fen

            Um, should the people who gave him the money have a say? Taxpayers should have an expectation for what their dues are going towards.

          • NoDice

            Apparently, he should be spending the
            tax payers dollars on some English classes, so he can learn how to
            properly capitalize and punctuate his paragraphs. Ya know, like Pokemon’s target
            age demographic. It clearly wasn’t an academic scholarship. I’m 200% with you though, people that waste my taxes on shit like that piss me off too.

          • shitzon

            Yes, the governement has the duty to tell you for what you pay. In this case, taxpayers paid because other people have the right to get money from the governement in specific cases. If you’d be in his schoolar position, you would get the money too and could decide on your own what to do with it.
            It would be nonsense for him to buy a second computer (obviously he has one for commenting here) or more food when he’s not hungry. If he has enough money, he can spend it for recreational devices.
            If you want, you can see your taxes being paid for all that “important” stuff, while he paid his games from his other money, from work or parents or what else. But that does not make any difference – He has a specific amount of money which he deserves and he can use at will.

          • NoDice

            Sorry, but being low income and getting scholarships from the government does not equal “he should be able to buy whatever” with OUR tax dollars. His level of legibility in the way he types on here clearly proves it was NOT an academic achievement scholarship.

          • Fen

            If all other costs are taken care of, why would he need additional money for recreational spending?

            In the future, he will have many living expenses, to say that he doesn’t need the money for academic or living purposes pretty much establishes why he shouldn’t receive that money as an entitlement.

          • shitzon

            I don’t know how your governement decides who gets what kind of money, but obviously he has enough money to spend it for games o.o Like I already said, it’s not his fault when he gets money.

          • NoDice

            Just to be clear, buying 1 game ($40) is tolerable, but not spending a G on nothing but gaming entertainment. Our government is a joke anyways, and people work the system all the time unfortunately. A lot of people that are in low income housing have nicer cars and better electronics than most middle class families. Its a sad, sad reality.

          • Fen

            Legally, he cannot spend those funds on other non-academic resources. It is his fault; there are numerous other things that he could spend the money on legally, he doesn’t have the right to choose to not spend it on academic resources or living expenses.

          • shitzon

            Then your laws are waaaay different from ours xD If you give someone money, you normally can’t say what to use it for. If the governement wants to limit the ways to use, the money isn’t given directly. Only the governement has the duty to tell what they are doing with the taxpayers money, but not the people who are “helped” by the governement.
            (BTW because english is not my mother language, the word scholar up there is completely out of place. I don’t know what it has to do there … Oo” I’ll edit it.)

  • MegaMewtwoX

    is anyone else a little disappointed that no pokemon from this generation are getting a mega evolution.

    • TCMets

      Nope. I know they’ll get Megas in the future. This enables us to appreciate the way they are now, just like we have with every other past Pokemon. No need to rush into Mega improvements for the new Pokemon when we don’t even know how they play yet.

      • Kyudeci

        they say mega evolution is only specific to kalos.

        • Sable

          They haven’t taken away any form changes given to us in the previous games that are item specific, I doubt they’ll take these away.

  • Maple

    Sorry for being off topic but I need to say something, about that genwunner article. They haven’t been bugging very much, lately it has been the gen three people that grind my gears. Everywhere on the internet is “This is evidence of gen three remakes.” and I hate it. Why not let the pokemon people do what they do.

    • Sable

      They can get to that when they get to the Gen 3 Articles.

    • TheRece25

      True but I figure they are just joking and wishful thinking, not dissing anything though just hopeful

    • RED

      Personally gen 3 was a big let down for me at the time. Only a pokedex of 200. No postgame. And in my opinion, I wasn’t too fond of the gen 3 pokemon

      • regidudeam

        R/S was a let down. But Emerald was MUCH BETTER!

      • dewkage

        i love the gen 3 pokemon but i do agree with you it was a let down

    • LuxbeyTheMechromancer

      Same here. And honestly I LOVE Gen 3. But when dumbasses like that find the tiniest excuse to yell out “Gen 3 remakes confirmed” it really pisses me off…Same with I think it’s Half Life 3 or something like that. It’s more annoying than Gen1 people…all we can hope for is the remakes so they’ll shut up. (though i honestly want the remakes myself but i’m not going to act like that over them being made).

  • dewkage

    i have no clue which fossil pokemon i am going to get but if i get a Tyrunt i am going to name it chopper and if i get Amaura shall be called little foot (1+ if you get the reference)

    • RavenWindSirvi

      LOL that is a great idea
      “the land before kalos”

    • Dregoon

      I named Aerodactyl Petree, yes yes yes.

      • RavenWindSirvi

        LOL but it was ducky that said the “yep,tep,yep” so now I have to finda pyduck and call it that so I have a full set

        • shitzon

          We need a triceratops.

          • RavenWindSirvi

            yes I hope they make one someday but that was never my fav character so I will make do!

        • Dregoon

          It’s been a long time since I’ve seen one of those Movies so I don’t remember everything.

          • RavenWindSirvi

            it ok I was just pointing out how you made me think of naming a psyduck ducky toi go with all these other names. that would make a great team!

  • Nicholas Sankar

    I am sooo torn on which fossil pokemon to get!! I have always loved long-necked dinosaurs but…T-rex…… AAAHHHH they both look so frikken awesome!!!

    • RavenWindSirvi

      I would say get both, if you want I will be breeding and trading them

      • dewkage

        that is what i plan on doing i just don’t know who i should get first

        • RavenWindSirvi

          I will be getting one in each game. I will start them at the same time so it will go fast!

      • Nicholas Sankar

        That would be super awesome but how would we trade? Isn’t online trading in X and Y random?

        • RavenWindSirvi

          I don’t know I would think that we could use the friend code thing I did not think they changed that.

        • Sable

          No. Trading as we have done since Gen IV will remain, but there is now a new random trade option that you put something up to be traded, and you have no idea what you’ll get back. But you can completely still trade with people you know.

      • ShinyXatu

        I’d take a bred Tyrunt! 😀 That would be great!

  • regidudeam

    Does anyone think pokemon contests are going to return?

    • GLITCH’D

      I wouldn’t think so, as GF are very much focused on innovation in this gen.

      • regidudeam

        True, and pokemon amie seems to be the replacement for pokemon contests….hmmmm

        • BulbaSword

          Then again, Serena has yet to have had any sort of goal revealed. Ash obviously will seek gym badges, while I suspect Clemont’s reason for traveling will have something to do with inventing, and Bonnie’s just a tag-along. I don’t even know what to think about Serena. If she takes after the Serena in the game, then she’ll be more like a rival than a companion, but then I don’t see her traveling with Ash. Her pink matches Dawn’s pink and could hint at Contests, but that’s still a long shot. Unless she wants to be a type specialist (and I can’t see that based on her only seeming to get her first Pokemon in the first XY episode) or specialize in Sky Battles, I can’t see a point to her being there yet. I doubt (but really want) Contests will return in the game, but maybe the anime may have them exclusively, like Kanto had them in Battle Frontier.

          • regidudeam

            Since Serena is ash’s childhood friend there needs to be some chemistry between them xD

  • Maple

    Realization of great truth, X and Y will be in my hands EXTREMELY soon. Before I even know what happened.

  • shitzon

    I’m glad they’re still revealing Pokémon. I feared they would stop after the last CoroCoro and let us starve, now I’m happy xD Hopefully they’ll reveal more 🙂 New Pokémon are imo the best thing of a new gen, or maybe even the best thing at all xD I just want to know them asap, I can’t get the game by launch anyway ^^
    I’m disappointed about they usage of the 3D function… It was rumoured for days know and now it’s official. I think it is a bad decision… If you dislike the 3D effect, you can switch it off, but you can’t make it yourself ._.
    Also it’s not logical to give no 6th gen Pokémon a mega evolution ._. Why shouldn’t they be able to awake their full potential? Not fair! I’m disappointed about that ._.
    Everything else is really awesome about these games, but this two points are mean. Yeah, first world problems XD”

    • regidudeam

      Agree with you 100%

    • Claus H. Luíz

      There’s also the limited use of 3D visuals – most of the game, outside
      of certain cinematics and battle sequences, is displayed as flat 2D.
      “We chose not to use 3D in areas where we wanted to put more focus
      on the game’s beauty. We also felt that using 3D sparingly would make it have
      more impact when it did show up.”

      Source: IGN – Men are from Mars, Pokémon X and Y are from France

      • shitzon

        That is what I was referring to.

      • regidudeam

        3D is referring to auto-stereoscopic 3D modeling. 2D is referring to just 3D modeling without auto-stereoscopy (the 3D slider)

  • regidudeam

    Guys rumors again….

    http://i.imgur.com/BepBqH2.png

    • Dregoon

      Yeah I’m calling fake on those. I don’t know why some of them have red numbering but if it’s to indicate the Pokemon that megaevolve then yeah it’s definitly fake.

      • regidudeam

        Yeah I think the red indicates mega, which is why I also calling fake

    • TheNintendoChip

      Didn’t the picture of the pokedex confirm that the talonflame line was a 3 stage line? This pokedex only has it as a 2 stage…

      • Sable

        Yeah, was about to point that out.

    • Sable

      I think that also has Orotto as a basic Pokemon, and evolving into a three stage line, or at least a two… Yeaaaaaaah right.

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Definitely fake. It says Meowstic will evolve, but the pretty accurate PokéBeach rumors said Meowstic evolves from a Pokémon known as Espurr.

    • GLITCH’D

      Loving how Meowstick is #666

    • thekingbrad

      Yeahh..these are definetely fake

    • Fake!

    • shitzon

      This is not a proof, but I don’t believe that GF will ever introduce a gen with only four bugs.

      • Sable

        … Wow, there are only four bugs there. It may not be proof in the traditional sense, but it’s certainly another mark against it, not that more marks were necessary

  • GLITCH’D

    It seems that the RPG theory of the starter evolutions has been semi-confirmed by Masuda himself on the games-radar website!

    • regidudeam

      Can’t wait to see their final forms xD

    • Claus H. Luíz

      He did? Link me. :O

      • GLITCH’D

        http://www.gamesradar.com/pokemon-xy-why-director-masuda-himself-answers/

        “Later on in the interview, Yoshida answered a bit more about them: “So with the inspiration for the region being France and the setting being closer to a European type thing. The three starters this time evolve in a way, we can’t really tell you what the exact details are, but they evolve in a way that make people think of one of those medieval RPG’s. So that’ll be something in store for you.””

        • regidudeam

          flip to page 6 of 18

  • FennikSwirl

    Does it look like Tyrantrum looks like a King and Aurorus looks like a Princess or Queen

    • Sable

      Yeah, I was thinking it looked like they kind of went together in that royalty feel.

    • regidudeam

      Now that you mention it, yeah they do look like it.

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Tyrantrum, the Raging King of Times Before.
      Aurorus, the Ice Queen of Ancient Times.

      • FennikSwirl

        Do you remember the Caste in the first Trailer
        EDIT: Castle

        • Claus H. Luíz

          Yeah, what about it? o.o?

          • FennikSwirl

            Maybe we can get the fossils from there and the fossils may represent the past King or Queen

  • GLITCH’D

    Does anyone know where the other Tyrantrum screenshot came from (the one with it in profile)?

    • Claus H. Luíz

      If you’re talking about the only in-game screenshot of Tyrantrum up there,
      then IGN is the source.

      • GLITCH’D

        No, there is an additional screenshot floating caroused of Tyrantrum in profile

  • Stefan

    Woah, hold on… Who’s Professor Sequoia!? Could this be that Patrice person that was rumoured a while ago?

    • Kyle Kottenbrook

      the better question is what does a sequoia tree look like?

      • Hugo

        Google? or you could just come to California and see the trees in person

    • Dude-e

      Probably a translation variation of “Sycamore”

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Sequoia is from the English version of the games.
        My theory is that the person is a female professor
        named Patrice Sequoia. She could be the mystery woman who
        looks to be explaining about Pokémon Global Link in this screenshot.

        • GLITCH’D

          My only issue with this theory is that she doesn’t really dress as a scientist. Juniper always had a lab coat on, even when contacting you through the x-gear

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Maybe she’s from the warm Coastal section of Kalos?
            She could always just put on a lab coat when you meet her in person.

  • Javi Wonka ツ

    Personally I don’t like Amaura designs, it looks worse than a fakemon, btw I like the Dino fossils concept for this generation. There are a lot of Dinos and animals that aren’t in pokemon world yet!

    PD: Anybody knows why pokemonxy.com appears in blank like it was broken or something?

    • Dude-e

      Works fine on my end

  • Dude-e

    If Tyrantrum gets a dragon typed bite move, that’ll be my deal breaker

  • veratales.it

    Tyrantrum is really AWESOME!

  • xseedatlus

    which do yall like better:tyrantrum or Amaura(still cant get its name right)
    I dunno. Tyrantrum looks “cool” and all but I think Amaura or Aurou or whateever has a more unique design to me.

    • regidudeam

      Design: Tyrantrum

      Gameplay: Aurorus

  • Ice King

    i think Pokejungle messed up with the professor’s name.
    isn’t it suppose to be sycamore.

    • shitzon

      Nope, that’s what the source says. PJ just quoted.

  • Dicie (on a mobile device)

    Where is this Professor Sequoia coming from? Pokebeach’s anime post says Sycamore, so what is this conversation about (just got home from school).

    • shitzon

      Just look at the IGN link up there.

  • Fen

    Really Sugimori!? I was so disappointed with the official art, and then I looked at the 3DS screenshots and was like, wow, they don’t do Aurorus any justice; Aurorus looks great in the screenshots, yet looks like a fakemon in the official art!

    It’s like Quilladin all over again.

    Even the official art pieces that weren’t half bad looking looked WAY better in a screen shot.

    Dreamworld art should either take over as our official art our Sugimori should regress back to his original art style.

    • belmad

      I think it is not always the with every pokemon. Pyroar for example looks better in official art.

      • Fen

        I agree with that one. But generally speaking, uh, not sure.

      • thekingbrad

        The in-game shots always look weird to me. When I first saw the evos of these two in the in-game shots I didn’t like them(particularly Tyrantrum), but now that I see the official art they actually look pretty
        awesome

  • Tyler Harwood Simpson

    Professor Sequioa asks you to run an errand at the start of the game: delivering a letter to your mother

    Who the hell is Professor Sequioa?

    • Milotic4Ever

      The rumored second professor’s English name? Idk, it’s a stretch.

  • Desume

    A couple hours ago I posted a Bst prediction for Tyrantrum, so I’d thought I’d wipe one up for Amaura.
    Hp: 140
    Atk: 40
    Def: 90
    Sp Atk: 100
    Sp Def: 90
    Spd: 50
    Bst: 510
    The Base Stat total may be a bit high as most fossil Pokemon have a base stat total of 495 if that’s the case you can subtract 15 from Sp Atk. I felt like Amaura would be fairly bulky and slow basically a tank, I can’t really see it being fast and though Ice/rock is a bad defensive typing I still feel like it would most likely be a tank.

    • regidudeam

      This is much more reasonable…..considering the fact that Refrigerate boosts normal moves and gives then ice STAB so 100 base SpAtk makes sense. And It will need high HP will all of its weaknesses.

    • Fen

      I second Aurorus as a tank.

  • Claus H. Luíz

    In case ya aren’t exactly of fan of the official Sugimort art for Aurorus and Tyrantrum,
    I found some very nice fanart for you to gawk at. Enjoy~!

    Oh, and thankfully Disqus has finally got its shiitake together and started working properly! I can finally see avatars and posted pics again! O(∩_∩)O

      Hi Claus. The avatars are working for me again right now. How about you?

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Yep. Soooo much better! I hope the issue doen’t come back.

        • TCMets

          Me too! It’s horrible without the avatars.

  • CL

    I know this is a little off topic but I was looking at some screen shots of the game and saw you can get a Pangoro hat 😀 I pray there’s a Swirlix one, my guy will look so spiff! XD

    • TCMets

      I’ve got my fingers crossed for a Chespin hoodie.

      • CL

        That would be amazing! I’d love a Swirlix puffer jacket and hat haha or a Froakie bubble scarf 😀

        • ShayminSkyflower

          That would be so awesome

          • CL

            Maybe girls could get a Braixen scarf ? 😀

          • ShayminSkyflower

            Or a female meowstic scarf

          • ShayminSkyflower

            I just thought of something wat about a froslass kimono

          • CL

            It would. I really do hope they give us hundreds of stuff to choose form I want to look real random XD

          • Sable

            You know, it occurred to me, was that an icon for socks, or is it an icon for BOOTS. Because, we had seperate icons for dresses and pants… Just a thought.

            Aw really ? Nuooooo XD

    • TCMets

      I hardly ever nickname. But I decided I’m going to name my first Chespin Boogu.

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Since its an international game I’m sure you’ll be able to
        use ō instead of oo for its name. Flabébé is proof of that.
        Bōgu’s cool. Boogu kinda make me think of booger. :I

        • TCMets

          Lol, I like Boogu more because I call my cat Boo Boo, and the way I pronounce Boogu it’s like saying Boo Boo, just Boo Guu 🙂

          • TCMets

            Boo as in the way the ghost from Mario games is pronounced. Or what you say to surprise somebody, Boo!

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Lol @ Boo Boo the cat. 🙂
            Boo Guu is possible, too, with a space in between.
            Either way, you’ve got yourself a name for it.
            I feel nicknames add to the connection
            and kinda gives them a lil’ personality.

          • TCMets

            And that’s exactly why I want to nickname Chespin ^_^

      Yvelta: Darkness

    • Claus H. Luíz

      I need to see Chespin’s 2nd stage evo to know what to really name it.
      I’d nickname Tyrunt its German name, Balguras, because it sounds like a Godzilla monster name. I’d give Amaura the nickname Nívea
      from the Spanish word nieve, meaning snow.

      • shitzon

        It’s Balgoras xD And Nivea is a german hand lotion xD

        • TheRece25

          What’s Shitzon mean?

          • shitzon

            Think of it as a name. I created it myself (when I didn’t know english) and it’s just for me xD It means everything and nothing at the same time. And don’t use capitals on it ^^

            I wanna use your name in a story, if I may.
            *ahem*

            You’re at the park, gently feeding some Pidgey, and then suddenly, a flock of wild Pidove appear. You’re like, “OK, cool.
            I’ll feed you guys, too. (‘∩_∩)” Then they wanna be all brave and get closer and closer to the bench like they don’t give a fnck. Like you can’t just get up and throw a Pokéball at them. Like you’re not some kind of Pokémon Trainer, but a food dispenser to them. Then comes along oooone little Pidove hopping onto your lap. “Awwww. I’ma lil’ terrified, but you’re so cuuute. (,ᵒ̌‿ᵒ̌,)” And then it happens…
            It shitzon you. All. Over you. (ԾДԾ)७

          • shitzon

            Yeah, I know how my name is pronounced. That’s why I said that I invented it back when I didn’t know to speak english. But nice effort ;P

          Welp… Fixed Tryrunt’s nickname. I typo’d.
          Now, how am I gonna destroy this hand lotion company…?

    • Sable

      My Chespin will be named Garland. Both due to that being a plant thing, and also, Garland, the Knight/Dark Knight from Final Fantasy… And I so, SO hope Chespin can learn Knock Down/Smack Down. That is my greatest wish right now. Because then… I can have Garland… Used Knock Down. And it was Super Effective. HAPPIEST DAY IN MY LIFE.

      Beyond that, I’m looking at Malamar as being Cthulu or some other HP Lovecraft creature if male, obvious Ursula if Female. Kaiser for Tyrantrum. And that’ skind of where I stand right now.

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Really nice name for Chespin. I likes.
        Garland also sounds like the word garnish, which means to furnish with beautifying details; adorn; embellish. It’s also what you do to food sometimes, like garnish a dish with some herbs or garnishing a salad with croutons or bacon bits.
        I really want Quilladin to garnish some badass armor when it evolves!

        • Sable

          Well, Garlands are also a decoration, kind of like a reef type deal, sorta.

      • Prince Azulon

        Nice name.

      • TalesOtaku21

        Nah man. Steiner.

        • Sable

          Well, YOU name yours Steiner, I’m sticking with Garland. Besides, I also played Dissidia, and Garland was my favorite character in the game, so I’m pretty firm on this.

          And I’m saying this in good fun, just want to say. I understand the reasoning behind it, I just want to use Garland.

          • TalesOtaku21

            Wasn’t changing your opinion on it, just, lol FF reference, it reminded me of Steiner. Goofy looking dude with oversized armor.

          • Sable

            Heh, gotcha. Well, I’m still banking on it turning on the awesome upon evolutions personally.

      I don’t nickname them :p

    • LuxbeyTheMechromancer

      I don’t nickname much but if it’s one that I love like Fennekin or something like that, I might nickname it whatever the fully evolved form’s German name is (considering my family is German so..yeah) and if I like Yveltal’s German name then that too but that may be it.

    • BulbaSword

      I’m going to name all my Pokemon after chess pieces in my X file.

    Thought I’d let you guys know. In the last 20 minutes we just smashed the previous record of site views set in a single day, and there are still 4 hours left of today!

    And it’s all down to you guys. Hopefully we can continue to smash records in the lead up to XY and beyond.

    • TheRece25

      How many is that?

      • moving

        For now, I won’t say. It’s a fair amount though 🙂

        Perhaps we’ll publish it in the coming days.

      That’s awesome 😀

    • Awesome!! Just wait til X/Y releases 😛 , isn’t the current record from B/W launch?

      • moving

        Well, the current record is from today, the previous record was from BW though, yup! 😉

        It was a long time standing.

        • Prince Azulon

          I wasn’t here when B/W launched. Dang it!!!

          • LuxbeyTheMechromancer

            Well, you’re here now. Isn’t that what really matters?

        I get it, maybe eehh, don;t count on it. lol

        That joke was as bad as this one:

    • Prince Azulon

      YAYAY! CONGRATS TO YOU GUYS!

    • Sunny

      You sir get a hug and free Kalos starter from me of your choice as a congrats gift 😉

      When X and Y releases, gosh, tell that new server of yours to be ready ;D

    • Kriffix

      Woo! Congrats everyone! You’re all part of PokéJungle and it wouldn’t have been possible without you!

  • EliteTrainerXeos

    Masuda just tweeted out a few hours ago that Pokemon X/Y has reached 1 million preorders worldwide.

    Like WOW.

      Holy cow! Well I just pray that when I go to the store I’ll be able to get X XD

      • Prince Azulon

        M E T O O .

    • Dicie

      Damn. Interesting. I’m planning to preorder mine a day or two before so I don’t have to go pick it up on the 13th and the guy in the front to say:
      “Sorry, we’re sold out.”
      #ScrewedForLife

      • Sable

        Heh. I’ve had my preordered for a few weeks, paid in full as well too, so I can just walk in and grab it, and leave. I already OWN Pokemon Y, technically, that’s how I preorder. And that makes the wait even worse XD

        • Dicie

          Wow, XD, I haven’t preordered mine yet since the wait is EXCRUCIATING, and preordering it now will be even more EXCRUCIATING.
          #EXCRUCIATING

          • Prince Azulon

            #EXCRUCIATING

        • Jordin

          Is there any chance you could explain to me how preordering works? I get a bit confused with the process.

          • EliteTrainerXeos

            Basically, any shop that does preorders will ask for you’re address, number and any basic contact details. Sometimes you have to pay a deposit which entitles you to have a copy kept back for when you are to pick it up.

          • Jordin

            Thank you too!!

          • EliteTrainerXeos

            Anytime Jordin! 🙂

          • Sunny

            And also sometimes with big games like this they ask for ID, so bring a form of one like a learners permit, or Drivers License. I usually use my motor cycle license since I have that on me most of the time 😉

          • Jordin

            Yeah, I’m not old enough to have one just yet but I’m almost there, lol.

          • Sunny

            Then I say bring at least your parent with ya in case 😉 Its not embarrassing unless they hate doing this :/

          • Jordin

            They agreed to let me get the game as long as I stay focused on school and if I save up some money. Mom loves the game too and thinks Spritzee is so cute, lol.

          • TalesOtaku21

            You would only need that stuff for M rated games or if paying with credit.

          • Sable

            Well, it kind of depends on where you go… Usually, if you do it at a store, like a Wal-Mart, or a Gamestop, you can put down a 5 dollar deposit, Wal-Mart actually has little cards for this purpose now, which basically reserves a copy so you will absolutely have one there, and you can pay it off at that date. What I do, as I generally do my preordering at Gamestop, when I actually preorder, I just tell them I want to pay it off in full, and I have an account, so all they have to do is check my card/tell them who I am and confirm it, and I can walk out with the game.

          • Jordin

            Thank you!!

          • Sable

            I’m just wondering if my Gamestop will have a Midnight Release. Becuase I want to get this game at the absolute earliest time, because I HAVE A WEEK OFF SCHOOL THE WEEK AFTER THE GAME COMES OUT. W00T!

          • TalesOtaku21

            I asked if they would have a midnight release. They said probably not.

          • Sable

            Yeah, that’s what I’m afraid of. BUT, I can still get in there as early as possible.

          • TalesOtaku21

            You put down a deposit on the game to reserve yourself a copy when the game is released.

            This does NOT guarantee you a copy. However, the ordered ‘reserved’ copies in stock are separate from ordered shelf copies.

            Still get there early or they will give away even your preordered copy depending on the game’s popularity. However, preordering does raise your chances of ensuring a copy.

          • EliteTrainerXeos

            If you’re from the UK, it DOES guarantee you a copy.

          • CL

            Yeah, I might actually pre order one because I’m paranoid it’ll be sold out :O

          • Sunny

            Do it, you will NOT regret it 😉

          • CL

            I just might :3

          • Prince Azulon

            lol. I won’t pre-order mine. I like to buy things physically.

          • CL

            Or I could just get to the shop or 9 am haha, and literally charge through the door as soon as the shutter starts coming up

          • Prince Azulon

            That’s what my friend did last year. First one of buy the B/W copy in Michigan.

          • Sunny

            I did the same with White 2, but only cause my GF was opening the shop she worked at lol

          • Prince Azulon

            lol

          • Jordin

            If I don’t preorder it, that’s what I was planning to do XD

          • TalesOtaku21

            Just preorder it. It’s not harmful nor do you pay more for the game. Plus it’s satisfying to order in advance as then you owe less on the game come release.

          • CL

            I’m going too, though I’ve never had a problem before When I bought Black there where loooads of copies left P:

          • TalesOtaku21

            You still purchase it physically. Preordering is just a down payment. You basically loan Gamestop or where ever a payment, either partial or full. When the game is released, they will have a copy reserved for you for pick up (you will need to pay in full if you haven’t already).

            So really, you only wouldn’t preorder if you like to live dangerously and potentially not be in time to get your game.

          • Prince Azulon

            Really? That’s cool.

          • TalesOtaku21

            Mistakes happen.

          • Prince Azulon

            Yeah. As my teacher always says- “If you don’t make a mistake, you’re far from from the light that will lead you to your potential.”

          • Jordin

            So if I go to my Gamestop and I’m the first one there could I still get my copy without preordering?

          • Sunny

            Ehh maybe, its best to preorder, they mostly get games for preorders first then regular retail

          • Jordin

            It looks like I’m going preorder then, thanks!

          • CL

            I guess, I mean first come first served right ?

          • Sable

            Well, yeah, probably, I seriously doubt their entire stock could be already preordered ENTIRELY. But, they will have to keep the number for their Preordered People.

          • Jordin

            At GameStop do they make you sign up for all of those Power-up reward things? If they do I’m going to Walmart, I saw the reservation cards there. Except they didn’t have one for Pokemon Y 🙁

          • Sable

            They might have you do that. I had done it some time ago, so I still have my card and account, even if its’ defunct, it still tracks my preorders.

          • Prince Azulon

            Walmart from my house is like a 1 hour drive.

          • TalesOtaku21

            You don’t need one. Just your phone number.

          • Sunny

            They will offer it to you, but you don’t need to sign up for it to preorder, just use your phone or cell number, but imo its a great benefit to have. I got my platinum card and I use the points to get discounts, like I got GTA V for 20 buck using a 30 off coupon 😛

          • TalesOtaku21

            You can trade things towards a preorder. At gamestop, you can put credit towards preorders. The power up reward card gives you an additional 10% towards your preorder.

          • Sunny

            Or atm 30% if you have the card too!

          • TalesOtaku21

            As a note, iunno about the reservation cards because I dislike Walmart, but Gamestop nor Best Buy require any slips to use. Just put money down and they’ll order a copy for you.

          • Sunny

            I’ll agree with ya, Walmart is (for lack of a better term) crap for preordering games imo. I once preordered Pokemon Platinum from them, went there in the morning, and they said that it wasn’t out until a week later. I tried telling them it came out that day I came, but they said no. So I went to a toysrus and got it that same day. It then happened again with my preorder of GTA IV, they said the same thing, so I did the same thing, went to toysrus across the street and got it.

          • TalesOtaku21

            They get a shipment based on what GameFreak ships them. So, Gamestop would report the number of preorders for GF to guarantee shipment of, then GF ships whatever copies they determine would be enough to maintain profit.

            For example, Apple is only shipping ten Iphone 5s to certain retail locations for the whole week. As you can imagine that isn’t many.

            You don’t know how many GF will have shipped to retail companies so preordering does assist you in at least having your copy specifically for you shipped.

          • Sable

            Well, as I said, I’ve also Paid for my in full, so they better have mine XD

          • Sunny

            Luckily my GF works at my local GS so she’s bound to try and hold my copy if I am late from Comic Con :p

          • TalesOtaku21

            She might get into trouble for that unless you preordered it…or…can just buy it for you. :/

          • Sunny

            I preordered it in full already lol and my plan maybe to get it in the morning, and have her hold it till I get back 😉

          • Daniel Rojas

            I hope this doesn’t end in some kind of disaster :/

          • TalesOtaku21

            Not necessarily.

            When GS gets a preorder list of everyone who reserved the game, they make absolutely certain they have enough games on hold for preorders.

            All games left over are then put on the shelf.

            Everyone who hasn’t preordered, which is still a lot of people for some reason (Pokemon sells 2 m just in America, and only 1 m have preordered world wide) will have the same idea as you do: try to beat the crowd.

            So you CAN but you have a considerably smaller guarantee than just preordering.

          • Jordin

            Wow thank you for writing that long comment for me 🙂 I finally understand the whole thing, thank you again!

          • TalesOtaku21

            Never a problem glad I could help. Now go preorder!

          • LuxbeyTheMechromancer

            Yeah i forgot about that when writing my other post. Still getting there as early as possible to start playing as early as possible.

          • Sunny

            I usually preorder from GameStop and I never faced anyone selling off my copy if I miss release day. But GS is also a good choose as you can choose to pay what ever amount you want, and even use trade in credit to add on to it every time you want till its paid off, well that’s what I did at least lol.

          • TalesOtaku21

            I usually do too and they rarely do it, but it has happened to me. I mean, it was probably a mistake, considering how many games they have, it would be easy to get mixed up. However, just because you preorder doesn’t guarantee you’ll get it anyway, was my point. But reserving is still the best security.

          • Sunny

            It all really depends on want, if there are more buyers then demand, they will sell your preorder copy, happened with Fire Emblem Awakening (which I was lucky to snag the last copy of aka the LAST game in the entire town). But seeing that my towns GS is pretty much a retirement place and no one but a few little kids go to, I think I got myself covered lol

          • LuxbeyTheMechromancer

            And not being promised a copy (and pure excitement and inability to wait) are the exact reasons my best friend and i preordered at the lesser known/visited GameStop by our mall and will be there before they open haha. Good luck everyone.

      • Prince Azulon

        If that happens, I’ll go to Japan and buy it there. lol

      • TalesOtaku21

        I already own it. I just have to pick it up.

        They only put on the shelf what they have left after preorders. Reserve ASAP so you don’t forget!

      • IntimidatingWurmple

    CLEMONT CONFIRMED AS ELECTRIC-TYPE GYM LEADER ON BULBAPEDIA.

    “Serena is a girl from the Kalos region who loves fashion. It seems that she has met Ash before. Clemont is an Electric-type Gym Leader who loves inventing. He keeps his prized invention, theAipom Arm, in his rucksack. Bonnie is Clemont’s sister. Since she is trying to find a wife for her brother, Bonnie is a girl with a stern personality. As she isn’t a Trainer yet, she will be keeping Clemont’s Pokémon instead. The three characters will be voiced by Mayuki Makaguchi, Yūki Kaji, and Mariya Ise respectively.”

    • Prince Azulon

      ;O I LOVE THAT!!!

      • Dicie

        😀

        • Prince Azulon

          😀

    • EliteTrainerXeos

      To be more precise, Clemont won’t battle Ash because he has no Gym Badges. Serena is Ash’s childhood friend who moved to Kalos and starts her journey there.

      And if you’ve seen Attack on Titan, you’ll know that Yūki Kaji is the voice actor for Eren.

      • Dicie

        Don’t tell me this and (possibly) dislike my post just because you think some things are out of place. Tell Bulbapedia this, since this is DIRECTLY quoted off of Bulbapedia, which is why QUOTES are present. 😐

    • CL

      So he has an “Aipom Arm” that actually does resemble an Aipom tail. So is the other arm thing he has based off a Pokemon ?

      • Prince Azulon

        Maybe. I can’t think of any other Pokemon with that kind of tail/sun thing.

    Everyone agree that the Serena and Ash theme should be like Naruto and the 2 year time skip. I mean, Ash is Naruto and Serena is Sakura.

    • TalesOtaku21

      I might not like Ash, but I certainly dislike everything Naruto. However, really, the childhood friend potential girlfriend is a very overused trope.

  • ShayminSkyflower

    Poor froakie

    • Prince Azulon

      Yeah. I wonder if it got into a serious battle but with who? I mean Clemont won’t battle him, Garchomp tipped him off the tower, and the background was all bricks and so I’m guessing it’s like 2nd to 3rd episode.

      • Dicie

        Garchomp maybe to promote MegaGarchomp?

        • CL

          I think Team Flare put that band on its neck to make it rampage and set it “loose” on things they dont see “Beautiful”

          • ShayminSkyflower

            That’s a pretty good theory

          • ForceUpdateSani

          • Sable

            I don’t think that’s really an upgrade though, Brigadiers are higher in rank than Lieutenants.

          • ShinyXatu

            I researched that a week ago, I could have sworn it was the other way around. I’m probably incorrect, though.

          • Sable

            No, and if you are looking at Wikipedia, the higher ranks are at the top, so it’s Marshal/Field Marshal, General, Lieutenant General, Major General, Brigadier, Colonel, Lieutenant Colonel, Major/Commandant, Captain, Lieutenant, 2nd Lieutenant, Officer Cadet. Technically there is a Lieutenant higher, but that is more primarily a General, the Lieutenant is there to denote it not being a ‘full class’ General, as it were.

          • ShinyXatu

            So what is your recommendation for a name from this list, then? Frogonel?

          • Sable

            Hm. Honestly, I’m really not sure. They might change it up and maybe change it from Fro something. But, Brigadiers are rather high there, going right from a Rookie to a Brigadier? You have got to have mad skills to pull that off.

          • ShinyXatu

            I mean, think about the Oshawott line for a moment. OshawOTT, DewOTT, SamurOTT. In this case, it could be FROakie, FROgadier, and FROgonel or whatever it turns out to be.

          • Sable

            True, but you can’t always rely on that. Because, every other Water Starter didn’t stick to that.

          • ShinyXatu

            But we can agree that they all kept to a common theme, right? The fact that both Froakie and Frogadier have common prefixes make sit seem like it will be another case like Oshawott.

          • Sable

            Yeah, I edited my message, but I did agree with that, right now, they do have share it right now, yes.

          • ShinyXatu

            Alrighty, cool. Let’s get on with our lives and find out what really happens 😛

          • TalesOtaku21

            Just look at the bugger. He totally has mad skillz.

          • Fen

            Not bad, makes sense. I think they might go with some sort of toad king motif. King being the highest rank.

            Froaking! (the -king suffix might be overused though)

          • ShinyXatu

            Problem is, that strays from the RPG theme. Going from Brigadier to King seems a bit out of place in my opinion.

          • Sable

            To be Fair, Brigadier kinda screws up the RPG theme in the first place, last time I checked Military Officers weren’t what we’d call a Thief/Rogue or Ninja.

          • TalesOtaku21

            Brigadiers aren’t even in RPGs.

            I was under the impression that Froakie was a rogue. Rogues can job level into ninjas, thieves, assassins, etc.

          • TalesOtaku21

            Pretty sure Masuda confirmed though that the evolutions are going to be based on medieval RPG characters. So that’s weird. The name makes sense but the character doesn’t.

            In Japanese it has Yakuza references, so…

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Well, Yakuza are kind of considered thugs and thugs are considered rogues.

          • TalesOtaku21

            Exactly. So what the heck are with the English names.

          • Sable

            Well, on Bulbapedia, another source for the name is also being a type of leader of a small group, or something like that. That may be what it was derived from.

    • TCMets

      He sure took a serious beating from Chespin.

    • Skiddo

      I think it’s confirmed that that Froakie is Ash’s (imo). There was another screenshot of him with him/her.

  • Prince Azulon

    Bye guys. 😀
    Going to Art Prize tomorrow. Good night.

    • Dicie

      Bye! See ya!

    • TCMets

      Goodnight!

    • ShinyXatu

      See you later! 😀

    • CL

      Bye! 🙂

  • ShinyXatu

    Back on topic! 😛 Aurorus or Tyrantrum, and why?

    • CL

      Tyrantrum. He is a beast, he’s gonna be the “tough” one of my team. And he also reminds me of the Skeksis from The Dark Crystal :3

      What about you ?

      • Milotic4Ever

        When I saw Tyrantrum, I had to get that too. Amaura has earned a spot on my first game clear lvl 100 team, but that thing is a beast of legend! (Aurorus too)

        • ShinyXatu

          You see, I want to use Noivern, and if I do I would not want Tyrantrum because I would have conflicting Dragon-types. SO If I end up using some other Flying-type from Kalos I may end up using Tyrantrum.

          • Milotic4Ever

            Yeah, I try to keep my team as balanced as I can, and have little type similarities as well as have not more than three Pokemon sharing a common weakness.

          • ShinyXatu

            If there is another Flying-type in Kalos that is more appealing than Noivern, I will probably utilize it. I simply haven’t seen enough Pokemon to make my final decision in that regard.

    • Milotic4Ever

      Aurorus: type combination, ability, and appearance. Sold, just like my preorder.

      • ShinyXatu

        You have the same feeling as I do! X, Froakie, and Amaura FTW.

        • Milotic4Ever

          I want to pick Fennekin first, and get Froakie next, then Chespin. Or which ever other starter next, I just want my witch-fox first.

    • TCMets

      Tyrantrum, because I flipped a coin.

      • ShinyXatu

        Coin-flips are now prohibited. XD

        • TCMets

          Ok…then I choose Chespin!

          • ShinyXatu

            Chespin is prohibited as well. Not really, though. I lied.

    • TalesOtaku21

      I don’t really care for either, although I like Tyrunt more than Amaura. But everyone I know personally seems to be getting Tyrunt so guess I’ll get Amaura.

    • ShayminSkyflower

      Aurorus

    • Sunny

      Tyrunt has me, I like Tyrantrum a LOT so its a deff member on my team 😀

  • Fen

    I have to say, design-wise they are almost equal in greatness!
    I think it comes down to personal taste.

    Some want a badass, elegant, cute, regal, among other culmination of personality traits on their team.

    I like the regal and elegant types, so I might go with Aurorus at some point before I choose Tyrantrum. Though, I will use both of these pokemon at some point in time since they are, as a pair, the best fossil duo I can think of.

    • Claus H. Luíz

      I love regal and elegant types, too. I feel that these two fossil Pokémon represent those types. Tyrantrum is regal while Aurorus is elegant.
      The Rage King and the Ice Queen of prehistoric times.

      • Fen

        Yeah, he is tough and rugged, though, he has a beautiful color palette, and nice design features including the gold spike crown and white-spiked frills. I can see some regal aspects of the design for sure.

  • Nicholas Sankar

    Unless it was a typo there is another professor named Sequioa?

    • ShinyXatu

      Good point :O

  • Skiddo

    Do we have a picture of Professor Sequoia yet?

    • Sable

      No, just what the person writing the article said. Though, the fact it wasn’t given much focus is kinda weird, because it’s clearly a character we don’t know of.

      • Skiddo

        Thank you!

      • TalesOtaku21

        He was playing a bit of the game’s beginning. I’m sure it is a teaser, they would have to ask permission on what they can disclose.

        However, it doesn’t seem like you even meet Sycamore until after the first gym. It doesn’t really add up then because this professor has you deliver a letter before getting Pokeballs.

        • Dicie

          Who played part of the game’s beginning? I MUST KNOW.

          • TalesOtaku21

            IGN got to play a teaser.

          • Dicie

            Lucky bastards.

          • TalesOtaku21

            It’s really the only benefit for working at IGN.

          • Skiddo

            Your new avatar is ADORABLE! ^^

          • Dicie

            Aww, thank you! 😀

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Professor Patrice Sequoia.
      …Or, at least, I think so.

  • CL

    I hope there is another professor. I always think it’s weird there is just one Professor each region, maybe he Sycamore studies actual Mega Evolution while the other is trying to find out the origin of Mega Stones ?

    And if there is a Professor Sequioa, I dunno why but, I’d love rival professors trying to out do each other or something lol

    Sycamore: “Oh I see you have been given a Pokemon from Sequioa, here have a Kanto Starter.” XD

    • Skiddo

      Sequoia sounds like they’re going to be a woman imo

      • CL

        Yeah. I’d like another female professor.

        I saw this about sequoia trees – “The sequoia is a majestic tree symbolizing eternity, longevity, and
        vast wisdom. It can also symbolize endurance and strength. Sequoia
        wood makes excellent Druidic staffs, as it is very good at both holding
        and conducting energy.”

        It’d be cool to see a Professor based around that 😀

        • TalesOtaku21

          Sycamore could also be the focus of one of the games and Sequoia in another. Or perhaps they just have conflicting ideals so often argue. Sounds like they’d make a great couple. <3

          • CL

            I’d love that! A professor couple would definitely be different. could see them occasionally trying to get “one over” on the other in their work haha

    • TalesOtaku21

      Reminds me of Bill and Lanette. Sycamore looks like the ruffed up lazy butt and he gives off a competitive vibe. I hope he gets a lot of development, he’s my favorite professor already. Professors so far have been kind of generic.

      • Sable

        We are getting to fight him, so that’s a start. Giving the professor a bit more interaction. Though, we have ‘technically’ kind of done that before, depending on what you classify Colress as. He was kind of a Professor… Sort’ve. Had the Lab Coat, even acted as a mentor like character for some of the game, you sure saw him a hell of a lot more than Juniper. And of course he was mostly a villain.

      • CL

        Yeah I love how he looks and lazy/competitive characters are my favourite kind. The hair and stubble are awesome aswell XD

  • ShayminSkyflower

    Anyone else hoping your trainer can actually eat something I’m tired of having to starve my trainer

    • Skiddo

      and go to the bathroom :p

      • ShayminSkyflower

        That would be to realistic

        • Skiddo

          Not as realistic as having to sleep at night :p

          • ShayminSkyflower

            Just imagine how we would react to that we were already Hyped for sitting on benches

    • TCMets

      What about proper hygiene? My trainer must have rotted teeth and stink to high heavens.

    • Ever play Harvest Moon? Feeding your character is so tedious 😛 Then again, it would be cool to eat like at a Café just when you felt like it.

      • TalesOtaku21

        Mine always passed out. >_>

        • Same here.. I was always eating all those roots/ plants to get stamina back 😛

      • ShayminSkyflower

        I would like to just go to a cafe and let my trainer eat something any time I felt like it

    • Fen

      Sims Pokemon!

    • TalesOtaku21

      No. Don’t wish for tedious gimmicks, they take away from the fun of the game.

      • ShayminSkyflower

        I meant just to allow them to eat it wouldn’t be required and there wouldn’t be a health meter it would be just for the enjoyment of allowing them to eat

        • ShinyXatu

          Like Animal Crossing?

        • TalesOtaku21

          Oh like the ability to? I don’t see why not then. Especially if it gives you bonuses. Consumable items can be useful in that regard.

          …though I would just sell all my food like I do in Animal Crossing.

  • Fen

    Question.
    Is freeze-dry super-effective on both water AND flying, dragon, grass, and ground?
    Or is this unknown?

    Also, do you guys think other moves of this nature will be introduced?
    I hope grass types get some of these to fend off some of their weaknesses.

    • Yes, all of the above. I could see a move like Scald have this. Maybe a water attack from Clauncher that is so hot it is super effective against grass types. Similar to what happens when you put lettuce in hot water. And yeah, grass types need some serious help 🙁

      • TalesOtaku21

        Scald does cause burn, so I always wondered why it didn’t hurt grass types.

  • ShinyXatu

    The only things I want to see at this point in time are:

    1) Helioptile Evolution (hoping it becomes Electric/Steel now instead of Electric/Ice, as I will have Aurorus on my team)

    2) Swirlix and/or Dedenne Evolution (I want to choose my Fairy-type for Kalos!)

    • ShinyXatu

      And I may not use Pyroar; that would be my only free spot to hopefully put a Ground type or Malamar.

    • Dicie

      YAY DEDENNE!!!!!! :D:D:D:D:D

    • TalesOtaku21

      The Pikachu rip off Pokemon haven’t had an evolution since gen three. Doens’t mean anything…but food for thought.

      • ShinyXatu

        Don’t call Dedenne a rip-off or Dicie will rip you XD

        • TalesOtaku21

          Oh. Um.

          Raichu’s mini-me.

          • Fen

            Or we can call it, Why-chu. Xp

          • ShinyXatu

            I’ll just walk away now…Oh look, there’s Dicie! *sprints away*

      • Fen

        Therefore, it will have an evo since gen 6 pretty much reverses all of the pokemon conventions! :p

        • shitzon

          Wouldn’t Dedenne then have a PRE-evolution? xD

          • TalesOtaku21

            Can it get smaller?

          • ShinyXatu

            There is no limit to how small Dedenne can get. It defies reality.

          • DarkraiLord

            You mean you WANT to see Dedenne get smaller? It’s like 8 inches tall you would need a magnifying glass to see it

        • Claus H. Luíz

          I just hope Dedene’s evolved form doesn’t follow
          Minccino’s method of evolution…

          • ShinyXatu

            As long as the evolution is larger than 2 feet tall, I will be happy.

          • Skiddo

            and if Dedenne doesn’t get an evo?

          • ShinyXatu

            I won’t use Dedenne in that case. dun-dun-DUN

          • Milotic4Ever

            Don’t drop that thun tha dun!

            Sorry, so tempting, that and it’s stuck in my head. ;_;

          • ShinyXatu

            I have no idea what you are referencing, but okay! XD

          • Milotic4Ever

            It’s a song I found through Vine videos. Oh good gosh…

          • ShinyXatu

            So you…

            Heard it through the Grape-Vine?

          • Milotic4Ever

            Viral videos of people being either amazing, or amazingly stupid.

          • TalesOtaku21

            Whatever fits in seven seconds!

          • DarkraiLord

            I would still use it because it is adorable!

          • Skiddo

            Congratulations! You gave the right response! Here’s a Dendenne! 😀

          • DarkraiLord

            Yayy! *hugs it and names it Hamtaro*

          • TalesOtaku21

            I’d love a six foot tall hamster.

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Gen three? The ele-rodents of the third gen are Plusle and Minun and they don’t evolve.

        • TalesOtaku21

          I was including gen three.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Oohhh! You mean starting from Gen three? I see.

          • TalesOtaku21

            Gen 2 didn’t even have one, strangely. Except Pichu but that’s literally a Pikachu.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            I’d say it counts.

          • DarkraiLord

            Some people for whatever reason count Marill.

    • Sunny

      The things I want:
      1) a few permanent evos of older pokemon that could use one (cough Farfetch’d Cough), and a few pre evos too!
      2) Is Corless and Looker back in this game, or will a new Looker based on the 11th doctor replace him?
      3) And finally, starter’s final evo types.

      • Skiddo

        ALONG WITH *cough Dunsparce evo cough*

  • DarkraiLord

    Apparently this is a list of the types in the Kalos dex that was found on 4chan, it is more than likely fake due to it saying Meowstic, Honedge, and Oorotto evolves but we can take it with a grain of salt.

    • Fen

      The red highlighted words were meant to have MEGA EVO’S, and it has been confirmed that Kalos pokemon will not have mega evolutions.

      Plus, it’s 4chan :p

    • Sunny

      It also said Fletchling evolved only once, we know from the released pic it had 3 evos since there are 2 gaps between it and Zigzagoon. So ultimately its fake.

      • Milotic4Ever

        Aw, ya beat me!

        #TYPETOOSLOW

      • TalesOtaku21

        Pretty sure in one of the interviews it said Zigzagoon is catchable. I miss that little critter.

    • Milotic4Ever

      It had Fletchling as a one-stage evo line, when in the past most regional birds had been two-stage.

      • DarkraiLord

        Aside from of course Hoothoot and Taillow

        • Milotic4Ever

          oh shoot yeah.

        • Claus H. Luíz

          Two-stage evolutions are Pokémon that evolve twice.
          Hoothoot and Taillow would be considered one-stage.
          If it doesn’t evolve, than its a basic stage Pokémon.

      • Skiddo

        Not Taillow :p

      • Sunny

        Murkrow says hi and I guess you can count Rufflett and Mandibuzz too.

        • Sable

          Yeah, but those aren’t what we consider to be Regional Birds. Regional Birds are the early com birds at the beginning of the game, like the regional rodents.

          • ShinyXatu

            I hope we get another bird in Kalos, because there need so be some more Flying diversity in my opinion.

          • Sable

            Oh I’m sure we will, I don’t think they’ve ever had just the regional bird and that was it.

          • ShinyXatu

            I want to see a quail Pokemon. I would use that.

          • Skiddo

            a ROADRUNNER Pokémon! 😀 (if we have that, *facepalm in advanced*)

          • TalesOtaku21

            Tranquil.

          • Skiddo

            Tranquil is a wild pigeon :p

          • TalesOtaku21

            Except Unfezant is a pheasant. Evolution at its finest.

            Funny enough Tranquil and Unfezant have the body structure of a roadrunner. Not what I imagined one to be…

            Regardless Pokemon never have the traits of one animal.

          • ShinyXatu

            But…but…that’s definitely not a real quail because it evolves from a dove.

          • TalesOtaku21

            Talonflame is a falcon that evolves from a robin.

            Your argument is invalid!

          • ShinyXatu

            ;O; Your specifications are invalid! I think.

          • Milotic4Ever

            An octopus evolved from a fish…

          • ShinyXatu

            Stahp. Just stahp! XD

          • TalesOtaku21

            I’m hoping for a woodpecker. Warbler, kingfisher, or crane.

          • ShinyXatu

            Crane! YES! It shall be Flying/Psychic because I say so!

          • Milotic4Ever

            Peacock! Fairy/Flying!

          • FennikSwirl

            What about an ostrich

          • Milotic4Ever

            Dodrio? I believe so.

          • FennikSwirl

            OOOOOOOO OR A KIWI

          • Sunny

            Turkey?

          • Skiddo

            CHICKEN!!! starts as an egg, evolves into a chick, evolves into a CHICKEN!!

          • FennikSwirl

            Delibird

          • TalesOtaku21

            Torchic…Delibird is a penguin.

          • FennikSwirl

            O it always reminded me of a chicken

          • TalesOtaku21

            We need a toucan. D: So I can name it Fruit Loops.

          • ShinyXatu

            Or a chicken that evolves into an egg…

          • Skiddo

            One BIG egg! One with only feet, eyes, and a mouth :p

          • Fen

            This reminds me, I have wanted unconventional evolutions. Evolutions that appear younger/smaller, yet are stronger. Or like a pheonix, that starts old and decrepid, and evolves into a baby and then an adult.

          • TalesOtaku21

            Tyrunt reminds me of that. Actually most evolutions do…

          • Skiddo

            It would remind me of Doduo/Dodrio

          • Fen

            I would love a real ostrich. Maybe a french made ostrich species, with the feather dusters and all.

          • FennikSwirl

            Yea it could be ghost/flying cause it could be in an haunted french house

          • TalesOtaku21

            You had me at feather dusters.

          • ShinyXatu

            YUSSS!

          • Fen

            OR grass/flying!

          • TalesOtaku21

            Rock on!

          • Skiddo

            No! If you put a rock on it, it would be severely damaged! D:

          • Milotic4Ever

            I can totally see it using some Rainbow Fairy-type move and I’ll be like, “Taste the rainbow, ___ ____!!”

          • Fen

            Peachrome!

          • Fen

            Hummingbird, electric/flying!

          • TalesOtaku21

            That makes no sense and that typing would be absurd! Brilliant!

          • shitzon

            It’s often associated with this type because of its speed.

          • Sunny

            That is great, someone give this man a raise!

      • RavenWindSirvi

        We also have spearow in gen 1

        • Milotic4Ever

          I GET IT, I’M TIRED! ;A;

          • DarkraiLord

            It’s 10:08 pm here, yet I stay up to extremes. I should sleep and retain memory better. I STARTED in the 3rd gen with Emerald, the fact I forgot poor Tailow is embarrassing. (well, technically, I started playing with Stadium, but owned my first Pokemon game as Emerald.)

          • TalesOtaku21

            It’s the same time here NO EXCUSES

      • Fen

        Regional birds:

        Pidgey (3), Hoothoot (2), Taillow (2), Starly (3), Pidove (3), Fletchling (?)

        • Sable

          And you could include Spearow (2) and Wingull (2) in that group too, they were found right at the beginning and were fairly common birds.

    • Skiddo

      When was it made?

      • DarkraiLord

        I just found out about it a few minutes ago so I am not sure.

    • Sable

      We saw it earlier, we’re pretty sure it is fake. Plus, we determined that the Red Numbers likely indicated Mega Evolutions, which we had just learned today no Kalos Pokemon will have

      • DarkraiLord

        Oh alright, I just discovered it earlier so I wasn’t sure

  • ShayminSkyflower

    Hiroshi Yamauchi died today he worked with Nintendo

    • FennikSwirl

      How did he die?

      • DarkraiLord

        Pneumonia apparently

        • Fen

          Probably a weak immune system which made him more susceptible, similar to other elderly persons. Too bad though
          🙁

        • FennikSwirl

          O well he he is now watching over us

          • ShayminSkyflower

            He will be missed

    • Skiddo

      Rest in peace 🙁

    • PercyEspeon

      D: I hope he’s without pain somewhere. RIP

    • ShinyXatu

      …That is very sad indeed. Thanks for your contributions Yamauchi.

      • Mr.Samurott

        WHAT HE DID
        ?

        • DarkraiLord

          He created the Mario series

          • TalesOtaku21

            Miyamoto actually developed the Mario series.

            Yamauchi was the president of Nintendo until 2002. He transformed the struggling company to focus on toys and games and finally video games, including advancements into the western markets.

            He did great things. RIP.

    • ShayminSkyflower

      RIP

  • Fen

    So, I can’t conceptualize how Quilladin will end up looking after undergoing another evolution.

    This is one decent piece of fan art I thought captured the direction of the evolutions.

    Let me know if you find some good ones too!

      I can’t hug that.

        Sure you can….it’s just, he may or may not rip your face off :p

        • Claus H. Luíz

    • thekingbrad

      This looks amazing I must say

    • regidudeam

      All he needs is a sword or lance, and I have no complaints about Chespin.

  • FennikSwirl

    Do you guys remember in the recent leak that hey talked about the midevil( I dont know how to spell it lol) theme?

    • TalesOtaku21

      Medieval themes for the starters you mean?

      • FennikSwirl

        To me its kinda for everything i mean look at tyrantrum and aurorus

        • TalesOtaku21

          They actually went more for beauty as their theme. Apparently the games’ overall themes are beauty, bonds, and evolution.

          • FennikSwirl

            I get it but I kinda see them as royalty/superior pokemon

          • Fen

            They do have crown-like embellishments.

  • Skiddo

    I love this new info! Only thing is that we’ve known about Tyrunt and Amaura for about a week and Oorotto since (July????)! Why can’t they just give us Oorotto! 🙁

    • ShinyXatu

      Trollfreak is the answer.

    • DarkraiLord

      They don’t want us to have le Oorotto :C

    • TCMets

      Oorotto doesn’t exist.

      • Skiddo

        PLOT TWIST :O What if X and Y don’t exist? What if WE don’t exist! :O

        • TalesOtaku21

          We probably don’t. The Pokemon world is the real world and they are playing us through our simulated lives as we play simulated lives of their world.

        • TCMets

          I think, therefore I am.

          • ShinyXatu

            You think that you think, but what if your thinking is really just data transferred into your life through some source outside of life itself? I love philosophy.

  • FennikSwirl

    What if the had a Marie Antoinette Pokemon like gardevoir ghost/fairy

    • ShinyXatu

      I’d LOVE a Ghost/Fairy Pokemon. That would give me excellent type coverage for my team,

    • Fen

      Yes, I would love a banshee based on 17th century Europe! With that tall monster of Frankenstein hair.

      • FennikSwirl

        And Pure White ghostly eyes with its own move called Beauty’s Cry (Fairy)

  • Mr.Samurott

    I want to know more about Serena and Ash and their bonds each other!! It make me think a lot I dont know why becuase someone think that we know everything about ashh but now I think I dont know nothing :l And I want to know how old is ash now because if they met before ash start his story!! Ash was 5 years or something

    • TalesOtaku21

      He didn’t look that young to me. But I do wonder how they’ll involve her in his backstory. We don’t know much about him before his journey started anyway. Maybe they’ll do…gasp…character development.

  • Mr.Samurott

    sooo this monday we’ll get new things about X and Y, the anime and pokemon Origin and I dont have school next monday 😀 it does that mean it ‘ll be a good day for me

    • FennikSwirl

      How do you know this are a psychic sir?

      • Mr.Samurott

        Arceus made it for me 😀

      • TalesOtaku21

        He works for GameFreak.

        • FennikSwirl

          SRIOUSLYYYYYY

          • TalesOtaku21

            lol no

          • Fen

            yes, he does. My aunt told me that her ex-husband personally knows Mr. Samurott. That is his Christian-name. Anyway, she told me that Mr.Samurott, worked for the KGB, and now is working covertly at GF, in order to leak classified information and cause mass hysteria and chaos.

          • ShinyXatu

            I heard from your aunt’s ex-husband that he knows Mr.Samurott through his dog walker’s cousin’s grandfather.

      • DarkraiLord

        Didn’t they tell us there would be new info regarding X and Y, the anime, and Origin Monday?

        • Mr.Samurott

          yes they did u.u

  • thekingbrad

    I kinda expect an Excadrill looking pokemon(body type wise) for Chespin’s final evolution

    • Mr.Samurott

      YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ME TOOO DUDE

      • FennikSwirl

        I want something more Knight like

        • Skiddo

          I WANTED the Dark Knight, but I think it’ll be Grass Fighting :/ Just hope it doesn’t turn out like Emboar :/

          • Mr.Samurott

            just dont say it again u,u…… Chespin will be the real pokemon grass dark

          • TCMets

            I love Grass/Fighting! Breloom is one of my favorites haha. That Pokemon has been blessed with amazing abilities.

          • Skiddo

            I also love Breloom! 😀 I almost always use it in R/S/E!

  • regidudeam

    So at this point, what types do you think the starter final evolutions are going to be, now it has been confirmed by Masuda that they are based off of Mideval RPG classes?

    • TCMets

      Sticking to what I said,
      Grass/Fighting
      Fire/Psychic
      Water/Dark

      • regidudeam

        Agreed

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Sometimes you’ve just gotta think logically. Lookin’ back on Sylveon’s debut, almost every single type was mentioned, yet barely anyone chose to believe in a Fairy-type. It’s a great example on how people can be too blind to see what’s visible to them with common sense (which nowadays should be dubbed “rare” sense…).

        I’m with ya on the types. Quilladin in now way looks like a Dark-type.
        Frogadier… could possible abduct children for ransom. And we’d still love it and say, “Oh, Froggy~”

        • TCMets

          LOL, Oh Froggy.

          I just can not see cute, adorable, gentle Chespin becoming part Dark. I think it’ll become brave and a Fighting type. It’s the warrior in rpg 😀

          • TalesOtaku21

            Considering its name is Quilladin, which looks like a pun on Paladin, I would certainly say so. It is gonna be a tank for sure. A fighting type tank would be weird.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Forgot to mention… Gallade!
            Its somewhat knight-like and is a Psychic/Fighting-type!

        • regidudeam

          When the rumor came out about fairy type on pokebeach waaay back, I had no doubts about it because of one known fact: “fairy egg group”

        • TalesOtaku21

          Actually a large majority of people were 100% convinced that Sylveon was a flying type, enough that quite a lot of them were vicious about it.

          When fairy type was revealed, those people silenced pretty damn quick and never apologized for their arrogant assumptions.

          I dunno if people realized this but RPGs typically have huge influences from fairy tales. Many DnD players even use references from fairy tales like Alice in Wonderland for adventures.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            I was one of the peeps who wanted it to be a Flying-type.
            But, that’s mainly because my favorite element is wind.
            I had no problems with it being a Fairy-type, in fact, it was my second choice. Now when it comes to viciousness, I’d say those who wanted a Normal-type Sylveon were at the top of the food chain. Serebii’s forums had a good amount.
            Flying-type wanters were actually fairly nice there.

          • TalesOtaku21

            I actually had a feeling it would be a new type. It didn’t really fit any description of current types. Except maybe normal due to Jigglypuff and such.

            Maybe it depended on location. Some people were pretty nice about it in general. Other people were vicious. I recall my sightings of the vicious flying wanters being Youtube and Facebook, but people there are generally rude.

      • Smurphy

        The only problem with that is that not only does water best fire beat grass best water, but dark beats psychic beats fighting beats dark. So instead of being a 2 way triangle like rumoured, each starter would be overpowered against one and over weakened to another

        • TCMets

          How is that a problem? When has GameFreak tried to balance the starters outside of Gen 4 type wise? The whole point of starters is you’re strong against 1 and weak against the other lol. So many fans are harped on this balance idea.

    • Skiddo

      O: when did he confirm it? (Haven’t gotten to see a lot of the news, been REALLY busy) Fire/Psychic, Grass/Fighting, and Water/Drak :p

    • Claus H. Luíz

      I’m kinda leaning towards what some people are saying about the PokéBeach leaker trying to cover up his tracks a bit.
      Initially, he said the starters will be Grass/Fighting, Fire/Psychic, and
      Water/Dark, but then switch Chespin and Froakie around.
      In actuality, it looks like Chespin will turn out to become a
      Grass/Fighting-type knight. Froakie’s slender frame makes it ideal for a
      Water/Dark-type rogue. Add in Fennekin as the Fire/Psychic-type mage and you’ve got yourself some classical Medeval RPG classes.

    • DarkraiLord

      Paladin, Mage, and Rogue so pretty much either Grass/Dark, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Fighting or Grass/Fighting, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Dark.

      • Sunny

        My guess is that Chespin’s final evo will be like Dark Paladin from YuGiOh.

    • Sunny

      I’ll stick my hopes for the rumor types atm.

    • regidudeam

      Ignoring the accuracy of pokebeach rumors, does anyone think that chespin can become grass/steel or fennekin fire/fairy or froakie water/fighting?

      • TCMets

        I don’t see Fennekin getting the Fairy typing. Giving it the new type would make it so much more popular than the other two =/

        • regidudeam

          Same, but grass/steel or water/fighting seem plausible to me

      • Senoel the Turtwick

        I don’t see grass/steel for Chespin because of the advertising of Frogadier learning bounce, which would no longer be super-effective against Chespin. I could only see this if Fraixen becomes part bug type to resist Mud Shot, which I very much doubt.

    • 97gerome

      There’s also the Grass/Steel, Fire/Fairy and Water/Fighting theory

      • PercyEspeon

        It’s very flawed, type wise. 4x effective on Chespin from fire and its Steel typing would be normal effective on Fennekin, since Fire is resistant to Steel. And Fighting is not very effective on Fairy. Plus, I don’t see any starter getting the new type. But it is a possibility to keep in mind.

  • Sunny

    So, anyone with me that if they reveal a Dark Type gym, and or that you face a new set of gym leaders in Kalso after beating the League once as a after story with a new villain. How happy with everyone be?

    • Skiddo

      Mixed emotions. I probably wouldn’t get that feeling of the start of a new journey and my Pokémon would already be pretty tough (Unless it’s like Johto)

      • Sunny

        I think it’d be like Johto in levels.

      • PercyEspeon

        Exactly my point 😀

    • PercyEspeon

      I’m at a meh. Dark-type gym I’m crazy about, since there isn’t any. But having something like Johto, not much. It would be fun, but unnecessary. But I won’t complain if it is like that.

  • 97gerome

    Any of you guys believe in Espurr? I’m just waiting for a confirmation hahaha xD

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Do you believe in maaagic~♪
      Yes. Yes, I do. Espurrrrr~!

  • regidudeam
    • DarkraiLord

      This needs to happen!

    • themonster6893

      Love it……

    • ShinyXatu

      Every one of my YES

    • TCMets

      Nah.

    • Claus H. Luíz

      I don’t mind that balling up part, it’s actually kinda cool, but it still lacks badass.

      • regidudeam

        I don’t think quiladin’s eyes will turn into gyarados eyes for his final evolution

  • DarkraiLord

    I would love for Spritzee to evolve into something like this:
    http://media.tumblr.com/3c1e156267396accd8b0f9e649963e94/tumblr_inline_mps26dqXEX1qz4rgp.png

    • regidudeam

      YES….heheheheh….xD. If that were true, then I regret buying pokemon X

      • ShinyXatu

        Think about what Swirlix could evolve into.

        • DarkraiLord

          A giant cotton candy monster!! Hide from the stickiness

          • ShinyXatu

            “Welcome to the Himalayas!”

            -The cotton candy monster

      • DarkraiLord

        Just Spritzee in general is enough to make it sound like a plague doctor.

    • thekingbrad

      Fairy/Ghost or Fairy/Dark that would be awesome

      • DarkraiLord

        Whatever it becomes I hope it can learn Fly because I wouldn’t have a Fly user in my team if it can’t.

        • regidudeam

          I would like there to be available pokemon to fly with similar to Rhyhorn or Gogoat, without ever having to catch one

          • DarkraiLord

            That could work too lol

        • thekingbrad

          Yeah Spritzee does look like it will probably become flying type but this evo looks interesting

    • PhoenixRa

      Mr. Burns? D:

      • DarkraiLord

        It’s meant to be a plague doctor but I see what you did there lol

    • Fen

      I like that one alot, though I tend to prefer the benevolent version: http://24.media.tumblr.com/f27ce0b3b95e19b7eb5ecc3b02a4c767/tumblr_mpsys8OfD01qezwp7o1_500.png

      • DarkraiLord

        That’s…disturbing. Reminds me of the antagonist from Hunchback of Notre Dame

        • Milotic4Ever

          That dude creeped me out as a kid. Especially towards the end…

      • thekingbrad

        ok this one looks creepy as heck lol

      • Claus H. Luíz

        The look of sweet, sweet death…

      • Fen

        I thought this would be a Swirlix evo, but no, I don’t think we will have two poodle species this generation!

        That looks good also

      • TalesOtaku21

        It’s pink and smells pretty it must be safe…

        • Fen

          yep, pretty much :p

      • CL

        I like that 😀 Though it kinda reminds me of this thing. And this thing and its race was pretty evil O.O

        • BulbaSword

          Reminds me of that monster at the end of the Chronicles of Narnia series.

    • Milotic4Ever

      Fairy/Dark. I call it.

      • mark

        or fairy/poison. call it

  • PhoenixRa

    Ok, these are the best and most badass fossil pokemon ever! (IMO)…this is the first time i really want both o_o

    • ShinyXatu

      I pick Aurorus because it is truly elegant. And it would serve as my Ice-type, and Refrigerate would be helpful, and Freeze-Dry is amazing…

      • PhoenixRa

        I’ll pick Tyrunt just because it’s a Dragon (my favorite type)…but i like Amaura a lot too…both are awesome!

  • Claus H. Luíz

    Where the Helioptile is Jordin?
    I want a new avatar and was hoping for his skills and finesse. ( ˘‿º)

    • Claus H. Luíz

      New Avatar! 😀
      I just need Jordin to tweak it.

  • PhoenixRa

    So…it’s likely we’ll have more evolutions revealed the coming 3 weeks, maybe 1 or 2 per week, before the worldwide release…you know, exactly one week ago we got Pyroar. I hope so 🙂

    • Fen

      Swirlix and Spritzee are the next duo!

      • Wes

        I’d rather have Clauncher and Skrelp.

      • PhoenixRa

        I’m also hoping for Helioptile’s!

    • King Phoenix

      This should be fun!

  • Dicie

    Has anyone else seen the posts on Twitter from a person named “XY1012?”
    It’s most likely a troll, but he has posted some information, and it seems a bit fishy. Anyone care to check it out?

    • Fen

      It’s a reincarnation of mr.XY

      • Dicie

        LOL. Have you checked it out? I am as he is constantly updating with cough (fake) cough information.

    • Wes

      Fake. Talonflame Evo being Fire/Dragon? It loses both types of Fletchling? Not likely.

      • Claus H. Luíz

        The hell?? That person really said that? Uh-uhh…

      • Dicie

        I know. It is a bit wierd.

      • Fen

        Yeah, that is dumb. It’s Obvi that Talonflame evolves into Clawfireburner, it’s type is Fairy/Dragon/Fire. Yep, it will be a three-type pokemon.

        • Dicie

          😀

      • Milotic4Ever

        I smell Fake with a capital F for FAIL TROLL.

      • Dicie

        However, look at Azurill, a NORMAL type, who evolved into Marill, a WATER/FAIRY type, and then into a WATER type (as of now).

        • HikaruAyame

          I think they’ll change it to Fairy -> Water/Fairy -> Water/Fairy.

          • thekingbrad

            nah its probably going to be normal/fairy-> water/fairy-> water/fairy

      • DarkraiLord

        Another reason it’s fake, Meowstic evolving into a Psychic/Flying type lol

      • thekingbrad

        it would be cool though if Talonflame evolved into like a huge phoenix or something(if it does evolve which I doubt it will)

    • King Phoenix

      show us!

      • Dicie

        It is on Twitter.

        • Fen

          What type is twitter?
          Flying?

          • Dicie

            I think so. Flying/TROLLS.

          • PhoenixRa

            Ability: Prankster

            It’ll be too long, but here:
            I have finished every leak that I have to share with the public. They are all confirmed by Masuda, and will be revealed as part of Monday’s news. On Monday, Masuda will be hosting a presentation with most of this information that I have leaked today.

            When Sycamore transfers over to Team Flare, Professor Sequoia is the new Professor. It is a woman.

            Xerosic and Diantha are the leaders of Team Flare. Professor Sycamore is the HEAD of Team Flare.

            Oorotto is confirmed as Roroot in English.

            There IS a Dark-type gym leader. It is a leader named Blake, and uses Oorotto, which is a Dark/Ghost-type Pokemon.

            – Swirlix’s evolution is Fairy/Flying
            – Dedenne’s evolution is Electric/Fairy, as before

            – Meowstic evolves into a Psychic/Flying type
            – Furfrou gets a split evolution- Normal/Fairy and Normal/Dark.

            – Helioptile’s evolution is Electric/Fairy
            – Talonflame’s evolution is Fire/Dragon
            – Spritzee’s evolution is Fairy/Psychic

            Froakie-Frogadier-Kroaking
            Fennekin-Braixen-Mafoxy
            Chespin-Quilladin-Chesknight

            It has been officially confirmed:
            Chespin’s Final: Grass/Dark
            Fennekin’s Final: Fire/Psychic
            Froakie’s Final: Water/Fighting

          • Fen

            “It is a woman.”

            Now this guy knows what he’s talkin bout!

          • Dicie

            😀

          • thekingbrad

            Kroaking and Chesknight? Pretty sure we’ve heard those fake names before…..they could at least have been original with those…..

          • Dicie

            I know! That’s what I said! This guy is a total troll!

          • regidudeam

            “Sycamore is the HEAD of Team Flare.”

            How many “leakers” keep repeating this fact???

          • Dicie

            I know right! This is some BS!

          • TalesOtaku21

            Because it would be AWESOME.

          • TalesOtaku21

            To be fair, Sycamore being a turncoat would be cool, especially if us and our friends in game got close to him.

          • Milotic4Ever

            Would it be too deep for the younger players, or no?

          • Dicie

            It would be more Sci-Fi/mystery-like.

          • TalesOtaku21

            And accusing people of treating their Pokemon as tools for violent dog fighting is not?

            Check out Disney movies. Majority of those plots should be well over kids’ heads. This way, adults can still enjoy the films while there is still something for kids to enjoy as well. Pokemon does the same thing.

          • Dicie

            It would indeed be a major plot twist. I would DIE if Diantha and Xerosic, with the help of Sycamore, were the leaders and heads of Team Flare, and worked collaboratively to create a world of beauty. At first, you would be friends with the three of them, and right before the champion battle, the truth would come out and you would go across MULTIPLE regions trying to find them and what they’re up to! Who knows what Hoenn might look like after 10 FREAKING YEARS!!! That plot twist would be AMAZING!!!! PLEASE NINTENDO!!!

          • TalesOtaku21

            Masuda already confirmed that they would not be involving previous regions. All post game content will be in Kalos too.

          • Dicie

            FU–! GODDAMMIT! WE LOST OUR CHANCE FOR HERNN TO RETURN. :(:(

          • DarkraiLord

            This is just my opinion but I really don’t see the appeal of Hoenn and why it should have remakes.

          • Fen

            blasphemy!

          • DarkraiLord

            I just never liked the region in general, the evil teams were a little bland but the story of the legends and the Pokemon were good.

          • TalesOtaku21

            I just miss it. :/

          • regidudeam

            For me hoenn had appeal for it’s landscapes, beacause it was the 1st pokemon to showcase deserts, cable cars, soot, underwater crevices, volcanos, meteorites, tide in shoal cave, tree houses, secret bases etc. Hoenn’s appeal for me was it’s creative landscape

            Oh and don’t forget the trumpets.

          • DarkraiLord

            Yeah the landscape was cool however volcanoes were showcased before with Cinnabar Island (GSC/HGSS even if there wasn’t lava) and in a way Mt. Ember in the Sevii Islands. Then we never got cable cars, soot, tides, tree houses, or secret bases again.

          • regidudeam

            But FRLG came after RS

          • DarkraiLord

            Actually RS came out in 2002 in Japan with FRLG coming out in 2004 in Japan.

          • regidudeam

            So RS was the first pokemon game to graphically showcase volcanoes. In GSC, the volcano looked like a square. But yeah, I like RS for its scenery. I disliked RS for its lack of pokemon.

          • DarkraiLord

            You wanna talk lack of Pokemon just look at Sinnoh with only one Fire type in the form of Infernape that you could actually get in game (aside from Ponyta, Houndour, and Flareon) ,Heatran you couldn’t get until after game and if you didn’t have anyone to trade with you were out of luck with Magmortar. The Pokemon in Hoenn I liked with no doubt in my mind but the antagonists and Gym leaders were a little bland.

          • regidudeam

            Ahhh that makes sense. See I never really payed much attention to story. That never really appealed to me in pokemon. It was just battling and scenery for me. I definitely agree with you about the lack of fire types in DPPt and I really didn’t like it also. To be honest, I disliked DPPt more than RSE for it’s lack of unique scenery (apart from the routes near snowpoint). BW/BW2 had great scenery but boring battles.

            Since scenery and battling are the two things I really enjoy in pokemon, you can realize that I’m extremely excited about X and Y especially! xD

          • TalesOtaku21

            Pokemon isn’t gonna die after this game. >_> There’s still the future.

          • Fen

            The next gen will be all ghost pokemon.

          • ShinyXatu

            Lavender Town music everywhere!

          • Fen

            This.

          • littlegg

            Personally I hate games that span regions because while I get so much enjoyment out of the several hundred hours I put in the master quest, I always feel like aftergame feels tacked on in G/S/C. Kanto felt barren and it took less than an hour to travel through. It was just pointless, honestly.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            It seems like this person hasn’t seen that latest Japanese Pokémon X&Y trailer. Orotto took super effective damage from Flareon’s Lava Plume.

          • Dicie

            Yeah LOL

          • P

            Hell will freeze over if Dedenne doesn’t turn out to be a standalone.

    • PhoenixRa

      Those kids…they don’t know how to spend their time. Talonflame’s evolution being Fire/Dragon would be the ultimate troll for Charizard’s lovers xD…

  • Milotic4Ever

    Wouldn’t anyone like a Fairy/Ghost marionette Pokemon? I would. Putting that aside, i’m digging the fossil evos.

    • regidudeam

      If it’s a Banette Mega Evolution you are referring to then…..YES!!!!!

    • Dicie

      Fairy/Dragon is what I personally want. x4 effective to Dragon, right?
      x2 Fairy + x2 Dragon = x4 overall, right?

      • TalesOtaku21

        Uh no. The 4x damage is when the opposite is double weak to an attack. Like a rock type attack does 4x damage to fire/flying types because it is super effective to both fire and flying types.

        However it WOULD be a formidable foe to dragon types, as it would still have stab for two of dragon type’s weaknesses and negates dragon attacks still. The dragon would struggle a ton, unless it has steel/poison typing and/or attacks (or fire typing).

      • Milotic4Ever

        Offensively or defensively? Because Fairy is weak to Poison, Steel and Immune to Dragon (not listing all the type match-ups.)

      • Milotic4Ever

        “The Dragon type is one of two types that have both never been and will never (with the current type chart) be doubly super effective against any Pokémon, as it is only super effective against one type. The other is the Normal type, which isn’t super effective against anything.

        Similarly, the Dragon type is also the only type that will never be doubly resisted by anything, as only Steel resists it.”

        – Bulbapedia, Dragon Type (page)

      • thekingbrad

        The dragon type slayer

      • King Phoenix

        Just give it the dragon fang while you’re at it lol

    • Wes

      I see what you did there. ~_^

      • Milotic4Ever

        I didn’t even notice until now. Imagine that…

    • NLque

      Fairy/Ghost would make a monster if put into the right hands. I think the only pokemon that can resist both types is Houndoom.

      • regidudeam

        Houndoom doesn’t resist fairy, it takes neutral from fairy

        • NLque

          Oh yeah, my bad. Thought dark resisted fairy for some reason.

          • regidudeam

            No probs xD

    • s

      I’d rather have Game Freak retype Misdreavus and Mismagius to Ghost/Fairy.

    • jwaterworks

      I’ve always imagioned an Bannete evo to be like a puppetteer/marionette like pokemon, which i still hope for to happen. Mostly because of dusclops getting an evolution in gen 4 but bannete not.

  • regidudeam

    What are your thoughts?

    • Fen

      I think someone missed the star next to Furfrou and Swirlix.

      • regidudeam

        I actually like Furfrou untrimmed more than trimmed. Swirlix is okay, but I really wanna see what it evolves into.

    • Dicie

      On what?

      • regidudeam

        refresh page

            You don’t know love until you have met a certain ShinyXatu.

            I love you too, ShinyXatu. You’re so helpful and friendly (no homo XD).

            Well, Dedennyness is my middle name. 😀

          • Dicie

            Yes, siree. 😀

          • ShinyXatu

            So your mother is a hamster and your father smells of marmalade?

          • Dicie

            Nope, my mother is a Xatu, and my father is an Arceus.

          • ShinyXatu

            My mother is a Noivern and father is a Dedenne. Seems pretty backwards to me.

          • Fen

            Your poor mother, how did she survive that ordeal???

          • Dicie

            Thank you. <3

        • Fen

          Lucky numba 7.

          • Dicie

            Well, that’s understandable. 😀

    • Dregoon

      I need to see their stats as well as final evos(for most of them) before I make my final opinion.

      • regidudeam

        True, but this was just based on looks

    • ShinyXatu

      My team in progress:

      Frogadier Evo: Water/Fighting most likely
      Venusaur: Grass/Poison
      Noivern: Flying/Dragon
      Malamar: Dark/Psychic
      Aurorus: Rock/Ice
      -OPEN SLOT-

      • regidudeam

        My team so far:

        Frogadier Evo
        Venusaur: Grass/Poison
        Houndoom: Fire/Dark
        -OPEN SLOTS-

        I wanna see what’s out there

        • ShinyXatu

          I may take out Malamar so that could leave two open slots. I would like to use a Fairy type if there is a well-designed one, and the other could be anything.

          • regidudeam

            Same. So far I only like Ralts for fairy type

          • ShinyXatu

            Oooohhh…forgot about retyped Pokemon. Psychic/Fairy Gardevoir could do it for me.

          • regidudeam

            I’m curious if there are old pokemon retyped to something other than fairy.

          • ShinyXatu

            I hope that the retyping list expands further than Mawile, because that would open up new possibilities. Normal/Fairy Granbull?

          • regidudeam

            Makes sense. I really hope Blissey stays pure normal, because normal types need more love.

        • Dicie

          DEDENNEY!!!! 😀

          • regidudeam

            If you can destroy Latios, Garchomp, and Dragonite….I will have you in my team…no questions asked…xD

      • Fen

        ??????: New Grass Type
        Braixen: Fire/Psychic
        ?????: New Water type
        Furfrou: Normal
        Helioptile: Electric
        Swirlix: Fairy/Flying???

        • ShinyXatu

          Depending on Helioptile’s evolution, it may replace Malamar, as I am not quite sure about its presence on my team. If it looks awesome and is Electric/Steel or Electric/Normal, I’m all for it.

          • Fen

            I would love steel. It would go well with the sun-related concept. I can just see him performing a mirror shot with them metallic frills.

          • regidudeam

            I really hope Helioptile is a part of a 3-stage evo.

          • ShinyXatu

            They revealed all the other evolutions from that May leak, so why not Helioptile?

      • DarkraiLord

        Team Y (scheduled to change)
        Braixen evo: Fire/Psychic (possibly)
        Spritzee evo: Possibly Fairy/Flying or Fairy/Poison
        Skrelp evo: Poison/Water
        Dedenne (evo?): Electric/Fairy
        Aurorus: Rock/Ice
        Pangoro: Fighting/Dark
        If not Pangoro then Venusaur

        Team X (scheduled to change)
        Frogadier or Quilladin evo: Water/Fighting or Grass/Dark
        Sylveon: Fairy
        Meowstic: Psychic
        Tyrantrum: Rock/Dragon
        Talonflame: Fire/Flying
        Clauncher evo: Water/(whatever other type it is)
        If not Talonflame then Charizard

          YAY DEDENNE!!! <3

          • DarkraiLord

            Yes! It is such a cutie and I shall name it either Hamtaro or Bijou!

          • regidudeam

            Bijou…does that mean beauty in japanese?

          • DarkraiLord

            French actually, meaning small, delicate, and elegant.

          • regidudeam

            Well I was off….xD

          • DarkraiLord

            I was also referring to an adorable hamster from the anime Hamtaro named Bijou.

            This little cutie to be precise

    Look who learned how to walk on land~♥
    It seems like Inkay likes to be upside-down sometimes.
    I’d love to see an upside-down (or is it right-side up) Malamar in the ocean.

    • regidudeam

      Jessie probably has malamar

      • DarkraiLord

        Not sure why but I kind of want James to have a Skrelp.

        • thekingbrad

          Yeah skrelp definetely seems like a pokemon one of them would have

          • DarkraiLord

            Or maybe Honedge! I could see it now, just wrapping it’s blue cloth thing around James and taking his energy. It would be the next Victreebel/Carnivine/Cacnea!

        • EliteTrainerXeos

          I could see him catching a Clauncher.

      • Claus H. Luíz

        I’d love that, but I think she’d want Inkay more cause of its cuteness. 😀

    • regidudeam

      I really want there to be some love/chemistry between Ash and Serena….they are childhood friends….xD

      • Claus H. Luíz

        No, no, no! That must not be or else Serena will be Hydro Pump’d away by Misty’s Gyarados. D:

        • regidudeam

          But, the anime needs a little spice….it’s a little bland on the chemistry

    • TalesOtaku21

      I kind of hope Team Rocket doesn’t get Pangoro or Noivern. They are far too awesome to be associated with Rocket’s repetitive failures.

    • defensivebastiodon

      I don’t understand why it’s found in grass… Lol. Maybe it’s so smart it figured it out. I like it though!

  • Dicie

    #Top5Megas?

    • regidudeam

      Just appearance wise, not stat wise:

      1. Mega Garchomp
      2. Mega Blastoise
      3. Mega Ampharos
      4. Mega Blaziken
      5. Mega Mawile

      • Dicie

        😀

    • Fen

      Agree with regi to base of aesthetics!
      1. Vensaur
      2. Mawile
      3. Ampharos
      4. Garchomp
      5. Charizard

  • thekingbrad

    What pokemon do you guys think Jessie and James will get?

    • Dicie

      Jessie- Cute but Furious
      James- Interesting but Furious

      • thekingbrad

        I think Furnfrou could be a candidate

      • BulbaSword

        I dunno, James usually gets the cuter ones (Mime Jr., Cacnea, Chimecho)
        I can definitely see James getting Inkay. His Pokemon love inflicting harm upon him and I can easily see Inkay and Malimar wrapping their tentacles around him and trying to control him.

    • Fen

      For sure Malimar/inkay!

    • Shiny Trapinch

      Good question, probably inkay/malimar and skrelp.

    • DarkraiLord

      Jessie: Malamar or Oorotto
      James: Skrelp or Honedge

    • regidudeam

      Had to make a guess:
      Jessie: Malamar or Inkay
      James: Flabebe

    • GLITCH’D

      James: Malamar
      Jessie: Skrelp or some new poison type

  • Shiny Trapinch

    Am I the only one who’s naming talonflame “Cp. Falcon?”

    • regidudeam

      Talonflame use Falcon Paawnch…..I mean Flare Blitz

      • Smurphy

        No no you got it all wrong. Mega Blaziken is Cpt. Falcon. It learns falcon punch (fire punch), falcon kick (blaze kick), whatever his side b is called (Sky upper cut), and what ever his up b is called (bounce)

    • ShinyXatu

      I’m naming my Noivern Toothless. Not really, because I don’t nickname my Pokemon.

      I will name mine flametalon.
      Wow, I am good, I should work for GF.

      Show me your moves!

    I still find it weird that the Kalos pokemon don’t get megas. I can see why they’re doing it, it just feels weird to me. As long as at least the starters get megas in the next game(s) whether it’s the Ruby/Sapphire remakes or the next game for X and Y. I just want my Fennekin to Mega Evolve haha.
    It is a little disappointing that it’s not all in 3D but either way it still looks amazing and I can’t wait to see the battles.
    And I don’t know if I’m the only one here that links this, but I’m glad that your Pokemon get EXP when you catch a wild pokemon. It honestly didn’t seem fair that you didn’t because you’re still battling so…it just seems fair is all.

      Save some room for later Augustus!
      We need to experience Kalos pokemon without Mega’s first! Imagine if Kanto pokemon had megalutions in gen 1. We will appreciate the new additions of megas sometime in the future.

        Yeah we wouldn’t really be as excited for a Kalos mega compared to say a Hoenn Mega or Johto mega. That’s why I am very sure they will release Kalos megas after 1~2 years.

        • Fen

          I hope they do starters first 😉

          • regidudeam

            It makes the most sense.

      • LuxbeyTheMechromancer

        Yeah I get what they’re going for and all but it would’ve been nice if they gave at least a few. It also gives something to look forward to in future games.

    • PercyEspeon

      It is weird, but it does make sense to me. To get used to the new ones and buff the older ones. But I’m pretty sure they will in the future. 😀
      It is, but I do like the reason they give. To use it sparingly, so that we could savor the moments it is in 3D. That made me really excited. And it does look amazing on its own.
      I was okay either way, but it does make training and grinding a lot easier and as well as building a team.
      Overall, I liked what they had to say. It cleared things up, and I’m all the better for it.

    • TalesOtaku21

      Maybe in game they haven’t ‘discovered’ what kinds of Kalos pokemon mega evolve.

    Who’s Professor Sequoia? o_o

    • HikaruAyame

      We don’t know if that was a mistake or if there’s honestly two professors.

    Well the official Japanese site updated, but the English site didn’t. Huh.
    Tyrantum gets Head Smash!

    Unrelated but the hosts for Pokemon Get TV are here if anyone wants to see:
    http://www.pokemon.co.jp/info/2013/09/130920_p01.html?a001=news
    Includes Assistant Director Chespin. The show will get, like, one broadcast before the games come out.

    • GLITCH’D

      I wonder if that’s head smash that Tyrantrum is using in the screenshots?

  • hen da man

    Is that the how frozen Pokemon looks? Cos that looks pretty great!

    Pokemon Origins new trailer:
    Naruto’s voice actor confirmed!

    • BulbaSword

      My two thoughts about that trailer:
      1. That Water Gun animation looks off. It looks like Squirtle’s entire head is spewing water, not just his mouth.
      2. That scene where Red and Charizard are floating together… In the next one Red’s gone. CHARIZARD ATE HIM!

      The Uzumaki Naruto voice is strong with this one. :

    I think we will get more then 4 fossil pokemon.

  • Jiro Uchiha

    Edit @ 09:10: It has also been confirmed that the game will not receive any post-release patches to alter the components of the game for additional balance.

    Serebii just posted this. Not sure what it means. Also Japanese Pokecenters will recieve an XY birthday event running from release. You have the option to choose between Pikachu, the eeveelutions, sylveon included, and eevee itself. Something tells me these pokemon might know present.
    Personally i hope each pokemon gets a special move. I think it would be cool if Vaporeon got Water Spout, Espeon got psystrike, Jolteon got Parabolic Charge, Flareon got Sacred Fire, and Umbreon got Dark Void. Leafeon could get Growth, Glaceon could get Freeze Dry, and Sylveon could get Geomancy, unless it isn’t a fairy type move. Eevee could get Frolic/Play around, or that priority mo
