PLEASE REMEMBER: Rumors are for discussion and should be considered false until official information confirms their contents. They are posted for discussion and enjoyment purposes only 🙂

An anonymous poster on 2ch claims to have seen the October issue of CoroCoro, a Japanese comic magazine, and says that the latest issue shows Alolan Ekans and Arbok. They’ve given a few details about it and here are the translations:

  • Alolan Ekans & Arbok are Fighting-type
  • Their abilities are Fighter Skin, which makes Normal-type moves Fighting and increases their power by 30% (ala Pixilate, etc), and Shed Skin
  • Alolan Arbok is light brown and bigger in size than its normal counterpart, but lacks any pattern on its body
  • It is a Pokémon Sun exclusive and the CoroCoro issue also reveals that Alolan Sandslash is a Moon exclusive

UPDATE:

Adding in other rumors from 2ch, newest rumors will be added to the bottom. The Alolan Electabuzz & Magmar rumor was preceded by a typo so I think I consider this much shakier than the above Arbok rumor. It would also leave questions regarding their evolutions as well.

  • Alolan Electabuzz revealed, new form looks similar to the pudgy Shinto god Ebisu
  • Brought electricity to Alola and is seen as a guardian-type figure
  • Electric/Fairy-type
  • Has the abilities Friend Guard/Healer
  • Alolan Magmar
  • It walks on all fours and is covered in vines; covered itself in vegetation as a way to survive in the jungles of Alola
  • Fire/Grass-type
  • New ability that reduces the effectiveness of its opponents attack when it switches to a teammate in battle (teammate will take less damage when it switches in)

Furthermore, one of the posters has promised to post pictures of the issue tomorrow at 7PM Japan Standard Time. Hopefully they’re telling the truth 😉

    That’d be cool

  • PJ

    I need Alolan Weezing if this is true (;

  • David Nixon

    Alolan Ekans and Arbok this is going to be interesting. >:)

  • AuroraLights493

    Interesting…… VERY interesting…
    If this is true, this may actually add some credence to the previously “leaked” artwork of the Fire type Alolan Weezing that was on 4chan….

    Perhaps, if they are both true, they may be version exclusives?
    What say you, PJ?

  • Haxford

    I’m really wondering how they’d make a snake a fighting type. It’s cool if Corocoro will show this, but I want the starters’ evolutions 🙁

    • rhomba

      I was hoping for a water type Alolan ekans/ arbok

    • AlolanSandschrew

      meh. want them aswell.. It needs to happen

    • Mohammad Yasin

      Sandshrew is ice so who knows

  • Leo

    I’m still waiting for that Pokémon that will instantly make me love it (the last one was Zoroark). So yeah, I need an awesome dark type!

  • Bolt-San

    I saw Electivire in one of the trailers? I doubt an Alolan Electabuzz would evolve back into its original typing and they wouldn’t show a normal Electivire if there’s an Alolan form

    • Of Moose & Men

      Tell that to Meowth.

      • brad

        That Meowth belonged to the player’s mother though IIRC.

        But hmmmm… I like the idea of an Alolan Magmar on all fours too much to want to discount this theoretical leak just yet :/

        • Of Moose & Men

          Who’s to say that Buzz didn’t belong to someone from a different region? It’s too soon to write it off. Of course, that also doesn’t really mean anything either way. I just wouldn’t shoot it down immediately.

    • JustJam

      Alolan Electabuzz CONFIRMED fake: The fake leaker GUESSED based on Chinese Riddler posting a picture of a Chinese scholar. Pic was NOT related to Alolan formes but a NEW Pokemon

      • Mohammad Yasin

        Don’t rule it out

    • Mohammad Yasin

      Or alolan electabuzz doesn’t evolve cuz alolan forms are kanto only

    • Aqualate

      Alola formes are gen 1 exclusive and Electivire is a gen 4 Pokemon

  • AlolanSandschrew

    Dont make my tough strong electabuzz a fairy.. 🙁

    • Mohammad Yasin

      Lol

  • SpectralSeraph

    Not to preassure anyone but ummmmmmmmm

    GIVE ME MY ALOLAN STEEL KABUTOPS OR I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL….

    • DoctorBored

      You’ll throw a hissy fit?

      • SpectralSeraph

        Eat someones’ soul is more like it

  • Aqualate

    ALOLA MAGMAR OMG

  • JustJam

    Another Chinese Riddler guess gone wrong. This new ‘leak’ is so FAKE. Again just trying to make a wild guess out of his riddles then sending these ‘leaks’ on 2ch.

    • JustJam

      They guessed Alolan formes and the Darwin bird based on Chinese riddlers hints right but that’s all they’ve figured out.

      • Mohammad Yasin

        We don’t know don’t rule it out yet wait first before yelling fake

  • Aqualate

    Hmm wasnt there a 4chan leak (same one that mentioned Pyukumuku and Alola forms) that said a Fire/Grass Tiki? Magmar would be the 2nd one then!

  • JustJam

    Alolan Electabuzz is FAKE. The fake leaker GUESSED based on Chinese Riddler posting a picture of a Chinese scholar.

    • Mohammad Yasin

      Riddler and leaker was accurate. Don’t deny it so fast

  • Tev-Da-Trainer

    Alolan Electabuzz is part fairy type? That’s weird as hell, it never struck me as something that could be Fairy like.

    • JustJam

      Its a fake leak. Don’t believe it.

      • Tev-Da-Trainer

        I agree, it’s most likely fake. What do you mean by picture of a Chinese scholar?

        • Mohammad Yasin

          Supposed to be in coro coro we don’t know

        • JustJam

          He posted several pics:
          N1: Yukie Nakama, a Japanese actress, and Kirsi, a protagonist in anime Darker than black, which don’t point to the new pokemon directly.
          N2: A monk staff
          N3: Wu Yong(Ebisu look a like) an advisor of the gang of 108 heros in a fiction
          11: Aristotle + 4 elements – 5th element – celestial body – hole – hyperspace

          • Tev-Da-Trainer

            Oh so these pictures reference something in Sun/Moon.

    • Aqualate

      Alola Ninetales is part Fairy because it is revered as a mythical creature in Alola

      • Tev-Da-Trainer

        True, but Ninetails makes sense because it’s a beautiful and elegant Pokemon. Electabuzz looks tough as hell how can in became a fairy type? Lol

        • Aqualate

          Granbull doesnt look Fairy either XD

          • Tev-Da-Trainer

            Lol ok fair enough you got me there.

  • arivel

    electivire eletrobuio. e mgmortar elettrofuoco

  • Aqualate

    If this is the October issue of Corocoro, that means again no starter evos. Something’s definitely up then

    • Mohammad Yasin

      Their always secret. Xy they were leaked by early players

      • Aqualate

        XY second evos were revealed by September Corocoro

        • TheGreatGuardian

          And BW starters as well. XY middle stages revealed by Corocoro in September 2013, BW middle stages by Corocoro in September 2010

    • Tev-Da-Trainer

      To be honest I think will get Starter evolutions next month, like we have in the past.

    • JustJam

      Yeah this is fake for sure. If they saw October leak in advance, the FIRST thing they would’ve leaked would be starter evos not another bunch of Alolan formes.

  • arivel

    because, typing one miss.our inversion.

  • Mohammad Yasin

    Fighting type lol what sense does that make

  • arivel

    yes evo starter and rockruff

  • arivel

    but we surch that’s typing pokemon

  • Mohammad Yasin

    Alolan forms are kanto exclusive but electabuzz and magmar have evos unless the alola forms don’t evolve but thts dumb and should be fighting type fairy is interesting and funny af

  • arivel

    whay no alola shiny electric dark.-.? perfect alola … rappresentation typing

  • arivel

    is perfect titles game. and different time game.

  • Mohammad Yasin

    To me their real till proven wrong

  • arivel

    alola dragonite dark electric? hype.

    • AlolanSandschrew

      already ‘snapped’ an standard Dragonite.

  • Armaggedon16

    Fairy Type Electabuzz and Fighting Arbok make absolutely no sense

    Hoping this is fake

    • NoPantsWard

      Exactly how I feel

    • Aqualate

      ”Looks similar to the pudgy Shinto God Ebisu” and it brought electricity to Alola, which would make it being revered as mythical creature by Alolans and give it Fairy magic, like with Ninetales.

    • Artemis Julia

      Actually I can kind of see Fairy Electabuzz being plausible, however the other two? Lol no way!!!

    • thekingbrad

      Ice ninetales doesn’t make any sense either so I’m not sure why that’s an argument

      • Brian Domonsky

        You faggot Ice ninetales already exists?

        • rhomba

          Jeez, calm down.

    • Leon Perior

      Ice Ninetales and vulpix have sense due to their inspiration in real life, arctic foxes.

      Fighting Arbok would be innovative and seems like a bunch of creativity thrown to the table, but I really hope the game designers take ideas like these with some moderation. There’s no need to complete the alolan pokedex with a massive bunch of alolan variants. I rather would have gotten interseasonal alolan variants (gen 2, 3, 4…)

      Even so, those rumours sounds way more fake. The electabuzz part is confusing for me. As it has been said already, why would we want another fairy electric pokemon which is felt to be a guardian -like Tapu Koko, which already is a guardian? In case it happens this way they should be somehow related by area or role.

      At this point the game has gone so crazy, so innovative and magnificent in comparison with other games that we should expect anything, even “too creative” fails, or complex details that need to be understood in their respective contexts -and when, outside of them, seem like a mess.

      • SnappyK

        Alolan Raichu is also Electric/Fairy. With Tapu Koko making three, these rumours can’t be real.

        • Kevin

          Alolan Raichu is electric/psychic

          • SnappyK

            My bad, confused it with Dedenne I guess

        • Leon Perior

          Alolan Raichu is Electric/Psychic

    • Carlos J.

      A fighting snake makes absolutely no sense. But the bringing electricity to Alola and being praised sorta does. I don’t think Fairy is the right type for that though.

    • NoNameSinceBirth

      Maybe the fighting Snake came from the Chinese martial arts. There are fighting styles that were based from animals and I know they definitely have one based on the movements of a snake. I mean, they even have it on Kung Fu Panda.

    • Secundum

      It works the same way evolution in real-life does. Animals adapt to their surroundings and become completely different species.

  • arivel

    but gf ripeat… and fight, typing single infinity

  • arivel

    if listen funs one time.. good

  • Hollow

    Kinda hope arbok and ekans aren’t in this game, mostly because Hawaii doesn’t have snakes (except for one that’s basically a black worm)

  • NoPantsWard

    This just screams “fake” to me. I have no facts or evidence to the contrary it just feels made up.

  • arivel

    rockruff evolve tipes wormadam, with stone z?

    • Aqualate

      You do realise that Z-stones have nothing to do with evolution right?

  • Mohammad Yasin

    Alolan magmar too much sense

  • Aqualate

    While I don’t believe Alola Electabuzz and Arbok/Ekans, I do think Magmar could be accurate.

  • arivel

    not confirmed,with dragonite last leak

  • David Nixon

    I’ve waited long enough,my fellow Gamers we must put on our hot rod like Pokemon clothing and show these guys that we mean business,we want our leaks and we want it bad,let’s show these guys the business,bring up your best Pokemon and follow me to the Gate! >XD

  • Aqualate

    Has anybody noticed, that the protagonist from the upcoming Sun and Moon manga series looks very similar to the one from Gale of Darkness?

  • Hey

    Aloan Arbok for Jessie, aloan weezing for James 🙂

    • Aqualate

      They released them back in Hoenn…

      • Well of course it doesn’t make sense for it to be the same ones from the first seasons… since that’s not how regional variants worked…

  • zess

    Hate the type. would’ve loved if it stayed poison or at the very least poison fighting. I hope we finally we get alternative form Arbok it’s pokedex hinted at that years ago!

  • EarthenWarrior

    This is a load of TAUROS
    Why would they need Electricity when they have so many bloody Electric Types
    Also Magmar live in effing volcanoes they would never venture far from a ultra-heated habitat otherwise it would just burn its way through a jungle

    The only one that doesn’t sound completely stupid is the Arbok idea, but not Arbok itself I can easily see a agile and very powerful Snake Fighting type ala snake style Kung fu

    • Aqualate

      Like Game Freak cares about making sense lol. Granbull doesn’t even remotely resemble a Fairy

      • EarthenWarrior

        Well this has been said a billion times
        They took inspiration from a Cu Sith which translates to Dog Fairy and even in Gen 2 Snubbull and Granbull where classified as the Fairy Pokemon so take it up with them

      • zess

        I use to be a dog groomer and a least half of all the bulldogs were owned by women. They thought they were the cutest things for some reason. Maybe in game freaks mind cute=fairy?

        • Aqualate

          Nah Fairy represents magic in the Pokemon universe

          • zess

            What’s more magical than this? (refresh)

        • EarthenWarrior

          Bulldogs are cute

          • zess

            Some of the smaller what I like to call compact bulldogs are cute but we got a lot of ugly fat wrinkly messes. The cute ones were few and far between.

    • zess

      Maybe the volcano on the island they inhabited is no longer active so they were forced to adapt.

      • Aqualate

        This, Alola Ninetales is Ice/Fairy, but could have easily moved to a warmer location on one the islands to retain its Fire typing.

        • zess

          Well maybe Alolan ninetales will be exclusive to a set area in the game for example that large ice mountain maybe a whole group got trapped up there and evolved from there low land cousins

          • Aqualate

            I’m fairly certain every Ice type are exclusively found on that snowy mountain

        • EarthenWarrior

          That it could but the bloody site says that they kept to the mountains to avoid other Pokemon

      • EarthenWarrior

        But they are… Did you see the lava everywhere,

        • Aqualate

          There’s two volcanoes in Alola though, he means the inactive one on the starter island.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Doesn’t matter Magmar and Magby also can be seen in mountainous environments and even seldom a few abandoned buildings and urban sites

            But a Fire/Grass Magmar is hogwash

    • Aqualate

      But Electabuzz could have been the first Electric type in Alola. We don’t know how GF are gonna explain it, if it turns out true.

    • PumpkinBomb

      not to mention one of the gaurdians is an eletric fairy type why do they hae electabuzz with the same typing

  • belmad

    OMG this is so sad, it’s not off topic because Komala

    • EarthenWarrior

      Only the strong and obnoxious will survive

    • zess

      So sad?

    • TigerMasku

      It’s not sad it’s hilarious. ?

    • Naomi Kitty

      is it wrong I’m laughing at this poor creature….

  • arivel

    komala evo normal/rock

    • Aqualate

      Nah Normal/Psychic

  • Artemis Julia

    What!? This is so fake. nothing in this makes any sense. A Fighting Arbok!? How? Also Fire/Grass Magmar isn’t even possible as well.

    • Aqualate

      Read Earthen’s comment below, fighting type Arbok can make sense.

  • Aqualate

    Lmao I just encountered a wild Steelix in Soulsilver.

    • TigerMasku

      Is that possible or is it a glitch?

      • EarthenWarrior

        It’s very possible

      • Aqualate

        No its possible in Cliff Cave, it has a 5% encounter rate though

        • Golden_Lucario

          I was originally going to use one for my previous run of HeartGold but then I saw a Larvitar at the safari zone and quickly changed my mind, Tyranitars are beast.

  • arivel

    arbok poiosn/electric our ice/poison.

  • Raphael

    i wonder if tauros gets a new form too .. it looks so white on one picture

    • Aqualate

      Thats just lighting but an Alola Tauros would be neat imo. Normal/Steel perhaps?

      • Raphael

        4x weak to fight :´D … again nOooo

  • EarthenWarrior

    That tears it I am determined to create a Snake Fighters type
    Comboa or Skirmamba
    The Striking Pokemon
    A long slender Serpentine Pokemon with a glossy brown red coloration with specks of black, at the very end of its pointy tail are several bands of skin that when it curls its tail allow it to jab and “punch” opponents, its face is thin with a similar band of skin on its face stretching out from its nose to the top of its head that streams off resembling a headband with tassels

    lacking poisonous fangs or venom in order to protect itself it whips its prey with its prehensile tail and strikes with its face, it overwhelms opponents with mind boggling agility

    • zess

      I like it?

  • Retro Gear

    This confirmed poplio final evo

    • EarthenWarrior

      Get the $&@! Out

      • Aqualate

        Just out of curiousity, what do you have in mind for Popplio evos? I mean typing and shit.

        • Chaos

          Water/Fighting Type

          • Aqualate

            Keldeo is the only one yes?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Poliwrath

        • EarthenWarrior

          My original idea stems off that datamined pic of the Grass/Flying Ground/Fire and Water/Fighting and i came up with the idea of a Chinese Acrobatic martial artist

    • Chaos

      This confirms everything.

      There’s no need to play SuMo anymore we already know everything.

      Onto Gen 8

    • Aqualate

      I already posted this earlier. There’s no gender mark so I think its fake

      • Davide

        I guess i can believe more on this picture rather then on the post regarding electabuzz.

        Discuss: maybe there is no gender mark because Popplio’s evo have different “forms” because of gender? (Maybe something similar to NIdoking and Nidoqueen)

        • Aqualate

          If it has different forms, it still should have a gender unless its a legendary

          • Davide

            Your statement is correct.

            Well..guess we will have to wait for next info release. 🙂

      • PitogoXD

        Maybe it’s a male, and we can’t see the mark because the mark is blue.

      • AlolanSandschrew

        & i posted this on september 6th, so, oh nana whats my name

    • Portal Moongeist Beam

      Its Fake Minior is genderless normally but in this it has a gender so this is 100% Fake

    • Nickerton

      What does its name say? Flipila?

      • Aqualate

        All I can see is ”lio”

        • Nickerton

          Ahhh Fliplio

    • Haxford

      I’ve seen the video this is from. It’s definitely fake.
      https://twitter.com/rafibema/status/771031102479855616

      • PitogoXD

        It looks ridiculous ahahah

      • Ah_Q_mah

        Oh my goodness lol

      • Daniel

        Sometimes, I wish twitter had a dislike button..

  • DoctorBored

    Electabuzz and Magmar have evolutions that aren’t in original 151. Rumor debunked.

    • Aqualate

      Not really since Alola formes are gen 1 exclusives

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        I kinda agree with Doctor tho… Going from a fire magby to a fire/grass magmar back to a fire magmortar would be both nonsensical and kind of a letdown when you get to a regular magmortar.

      • DoctorBored

        The implication is that we’ve seen non-alola pokemon evolve into alola forms, but not the other way around. An alola Magmar will most likely not evolve into an Alola Magmortar because Magmortar is not Gen 1.

  • PumpkinBomb

    I only hope that alolan electabuzz (if true) looks good and not all roundy and retarded looking like the alolan raichu…I still cant belive this thing exists

  • CoolGlaceon

    I don’t get why everyone says that Alolan forms are Gen 1 exclusives. Nothing’s confirmed. All there is, is a pattern. It’s the same mentality as “Stone evolutions won’t be getting Megas herp derp” and look what happened, Mega Gallade came along and ripped that theory to shreds.

    Also, not that I believe these leaks, but nothing about these type changes make “no sense”. If they can give us an Electric/Psychic Raichu and have “eating too much pancakes” as a reason for its existence, we can have an Electric/Fairy Electabuzz.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Oh please they only gave Mega Gallade to that walking green stick differentiate from Diantha’s Mega Gardevoir
      The demographic was getting repetitive since we already had a Gardevoir mega user in XY and everyone knows Wally uses Gardevoir prior to Gallade so not to overuse it they cranked out a Mega Gallade just to avoid reusing M Gardevoir
      Plain and simple

      • CoolGlaceon

        Still debunks the “Stone evolutions = no megas” theory and the sole existence of Mega Gallade means that nothing’s stopping them from making more Mega forms of stone evolved Pokemon.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Find a mega from a stone that isn’t a Gallade then we’ll talk
          Otherwise I stand by my cold logic

          • CoolGlaceon

            See, this is what I don’t get. Facts are right in front of you and you still deny. But whatever. If you really think that they’d go against this so called, set on stone “Stone evo = no Mega” rule just to differentiate Wally from Diantha then by all means, you do you.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I said find me a Mega evolution from a stone then we’ll talk

          • > “I said find me a Mega evolution from a stone then we’ll talk”

            Gallade :p

      • Chaos

        Wally was better with Gardevoir.

        Diantha should have mained Florges, or if they really wanted her to have a mega, give her Alakazam.

  • Portal Moongeist Beam

    This is fake because
    It says Alolan Electabuzz
    and we have seen a normal Electabuzz fight Komala in a trailer so thats deconfirmed

    • Aqualate

      That Electabuzz was owned by a trainer so no it doesn’t

    • PumpkinBomb

      we have seen meowth before, yet this might be brought to the region.

    • EarthenWarrior

      As much as I don’t like the idea I am too smart to not explain that these where made to fight that Pokemon there is no concrete evidence that a form exists based on visual effects
      There could be Alolan Arcanine or whatever despite placement in trailers it could easily be just a non Alolan variant and one could still exist

      Same goes for Cubone as they could’ve easily shown a regular Cubone evolving then skip to a frame as a A Marowak

  • PumpkinBomb

    why would we get a cobra that is a fighting type and not poison ? I get that they dont want to make a lot of new pokemon but they could give alolan forms to other pokemon from other gens..this game seems to be full of a lot of things and my biggest fear is that they will left all these un explained just like how they did with the mega evolution, they throw it at our faces and before they even tell us why this exist or where mega stones came from they came up with the Z moves, and rumors say that we will no longer need key stone or mega stone to perform mega evolution, they are starting to sound a bit confused now.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Sandshrew became an Igloo

  • ThatGuyWithThePokemon

    “Covered itself in vegetation as a way to survive in the jungles of Alola”
    Ok, I don’t know THAT much about biology, but I don’t think that’s how jungles work. If I decide to go to the Amazon, I don’t think covering myself in vines will protect me from the dangers of the jungle. Unless of course the description meant that it is a natural camouflage that made parts of its body look like vines instead of covering itself with ACTUAL vines. But I don’t think this is real lol.

    • Nickerton

      No I think they meant “survive” as in all the other jungle pokemon would make fun of it because it wasn’t grassy enough so to fit in and “survive” the social life of the jungle it had to cover itself with vines : )

      • ThatGuyWithThePokemon

        Bahaha! You win the internet.
        “Hey guys, I got the latest vines from that tree over there! Am I cool now!? Guys? Guys!? D:”

        • SpectralSeraph

          You’re cool m8

      • Chaos

        Surely at that point , you just burn the jungle to the ground and scream ‘Who’s laughing now!’

        • EarthenWarrior

          Aka the Earthen Way

          • ThatGuyWithThePokemon

            *Giant stamp appears over screenshot of the torched jungle that reads, “These smoldering remains are approved by EarthenWarrior”

          • EarthenWarrior

            “I’m Earthen and I’m a dangerous sociopath”

  • The Last Kurusu

    I just saw something good on Bulbapedia it states in trivia under Mega Evolution that Flygon going to have a Mega so maybe it will get it or an Alolan Form this time!

    • Aqualate

      Mega Flygon was planned for ORAS, but they abandoned it because they couldn’t agree on the final design.

      • The Last Kurusu

        I think that’s pathetic just choose one We all would like it anyway… Even Earthen cause it’s Ground type

    • EarthenWarrior

      It was scrapped because of Artists Block
      The chances of it getting an Alolan Form is extremely slim

      • Ithsme

        What a dumb reason honestly. They have a team of talented artists and none of them can think of a good one?

      • The Last Kurusu

        Yeah but I can dream

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    Would have preferred a ground type arbok that calls on a rattlesnake’s design.

    • Green

      Steel would even work for that

      • Vlad

        Now you’re talking my language

    I believe they should ban focus sash because its so OP!

    • EarthenWarrior

      I take great enjoyment watching Garchomp total those upper crust Legends

      • Chaos

        Garchomp Is OP. Should be banned from standard play.

        600 BST in Normal Form. 700 BST as a Mega. Definitely needs to be banned that’s way too strong.

        • Aqualate

          Garchomp <3

      • TigerMasku

        It can iron head and kill any xerneas too

    • Chaos

      All you need is some priority. Hell Tyranitar or Hipowdon destroy Focus Sashers with Sand stream. Entry Hazards destroy them as well.

  • Wes

    I think this rumor is just riding on the assumption that all Red/Blue version exclusives are getting Alolan forms. It’s a good theory, but I also find it strange that there aren’t outliers like Exeggutor, and there’s no mention of Rockruff, which is confirmed to be in this issue.

  • Review Reviewer

    Sounds exciting!

  • PitogoXD

    when will corocoro show up?

    • Aqualate

      Later today or else tomorrow I think

      • PitogoXD

        Okk, Thanks 😉

    • Chaos

      12/09/2016 16:42:36

      • PitogoXD

        Lol, that’s funny.

        • Chaos

          EST

  • Spetsnaz

    I’m actually kinda surprised by the amount of crap people are saying about us on 4chan

    • zess

      Like what??

    • The Last Kurusu

      Who says bad for hinge about us I’ll Slice & Dice them to nothingness ?

      • zess

        And I’ll burn the remains!?

    • Aqualate

      Link?

      • TheNintendoChip
        • The Last Kurusu

          I want to use my Metal Claw on their throats and watch them suffer for bashing PJ!!!

        • Chaos

          There’s like two comments regarding pokejungle there…why are we getting insulted by that.

          Keep in mind it’s 4chan, which is like the Detroit of the internet.

          • zess

            Lol “Detroit of the Internet ” that was a nice laugh

          • Chaos

            I’m not American so I wasn’t sure if it was the correct reference. Lol

          • zess

            Oh it is lol

          • The Last Kurusu

            Just keep looking I’ve seen at least 6-7 posts ripping on this site

          • Chaos

            I didn’t bother scrolling that far down. But fair enough.

            Still don’t know why we should get insulted by that.

          • zess

            Don’t worry Kurusu their day will come. ( insert ominous music) ???

    • Shady

      Humans should differentiate between serious issue and having fun.

      • EarthenWarrior

        That’s preaching to the choir

        • Shady

          Wat that suppose to mean …..I can’t understand u most of the time.

          • EarthenWarrior

            (Look who’s talking) but not everyone is so lighthearted about something like this
            Some people are just hardasses who want info and get angry at the drop of a hat

          • Shady

            u call me a preacher while you’re trying to preach me (that make no sense).

            If I wanna told u what u shouldn’t do …I have a big list but that’s not my business.

    • Spetsnaz

      Featured..not sure what to feel about that…thanks 🙂

      • Nickerton

        Ur popular now! Pls can i have ur autograph

        • Spetsnaz

          I actually am a little famous…not really, but been in a few commercials locally 🙂 and an ad for an app!

          • Nickerton

            Woahhh pls sign my chest

          • Pharap

            “an ad for an app”
            Two of my least favourite things in the world: ads and apps.

    • Great, more publicity. There’s no such thing as bad ones anyway.

    • Naomi Kitty

      Eh, it’s 4chan. besides Pokejunle never says these are real and leaks fake or not keep us fascinated and talking about the game :3

  • David Nixon

    alright guys,get your Pokelyptic clothing and best Pokemon at the ready,because later on today,we’re going to get the greatest info on Pokemon Sun and Moon,so be prepared with your best Pokemon,so we can charge at the mighty wall of information with Brute Force! XD

    • PitogoXD

      How do you know that is today? It can be tomorrow

      • David Nixon

        i waited all night and i want CoroCoro Today!

        • PitogoXD

          I hope it’s today but still, i wanted it to be on my birthday (13th sep) like a gift from GF :c

        • The Last Kurusu

          We may we may not its all up to the dice my friend

        • Chaos

          Too bad you won’t get it

  • arivel

    dex complete fake. 100 + forme alola

  • Ultron

    Hammer Arm or Rock Slide for Swampert?

  • roy_vos

    I really hope this is fake

  • Shady
    • roy_vos

      How do you know its fake?

      • Shady

        My 3rd eye.

      • Pharap

        Because if it’s real I’m going to smash my head on the table and cry.

    • Ultron

      Why does it look like Lysandre and Cutiefly had a baby.

    • Wes

      The lines are too shaky to be legit Pokemon artwork. I do like the concept of UBs looking like important characters though.

  • it got sixpack! [pic]

    • PJ

      Now if only I could get one… *tear*

      • Nickerton

        Andrew Goes Places ab workout on youtube. It’s working imo

      • EarthenWarrior

        Abs are gross

        • DefensiveBastiodon

          I have to agree. Sometimes they’re attractive but who wants to cuddle a rock. Unless it’s Hugh Jackman

          • Spetsnaz

            Or Dwyane “the rock” johnson? Man I’m punny

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            Please repeat that pun. You’ll embarrass yourself.

    • Nickerton

      Ab-bok *runs away*

  • Ultron

    Meh, could easily be fake. All you have to do is mention a Kanto pokemon is getting an Alolan form, since that’s the trend.

    • Wes

      And make sure it was a R/B version exclusive, and people will believe it.

      • Ultron

        It doesn’t line up with what that Riddler guy was saying, and I think he has a tid bit more credibility.

  • Ultron

    Guess whose birthday it is today? Lil’ ol’ me! :O

    • SpectralSeraph

      Happy Birthday man!!!!

      • Ultron

        Thanks!!

    • Nickerton

      Your birthday is 9/11 😮
      Not the actual 9/11 but 9/11 ;~;

      • Ultron

        Yeah, good thing it’s not the same day.

        • Nickerton

          well happy 22nd bday anyway!

          • Ultron

            21st! xD

          • Nickerton

            Aw youre older than me by a few months

          • Ultron

            I’m usually pretty young compared to my friends. Here I’m sorta old-ish. Sorta.

          • Nickerton

            Im the opposite lol

      • Pharap

        Where I’m from it’s 11/9

        • Nickerton

          Oh wow idk why but I always thought 9/11 meant september 2011. Yeah it’s 11/9 for me too

          • Pharap
          • Daniel

            Well, I’m from “america” (latin) and we go by european logic as well.

          • Pharap

            I think USA is the only place to use the weird style.
            And maybe Canada or Australia, but I hope not.

    • Shady

      That’s will not stop Happy birthday….Virgo.

      • Ultron

        Thanks 🙂

    • Green

      Happy Birthday! 😀
      Have this corocoro leak (refresh)

      • Ultron

        Lol, thanks. It would be a nice present from Arceus if it leaked tonight. Although he already gave me crescent island today so I won’t be greedy… Sike, give me leaks!

      • Drew Genel

        We can only hope…

    • Ithsme

      Delibird. Kind of.

      • Ultron

        Oh, a present! -package explodes- Thanks, Delibird…

    • zess

      Happy birthday!?

  • DefensiveBastiodon

    Here is a leaked image of Alolan Electabuzz. Looks a lot like a Yokai ?

    • AlolanSandschrew

      ah hell no.

    • Green

      lol

    • Drew Genel

      Source?

      • Yu Narukami

        It’s from Yo-Kai Watch, the latest in befriending and battling monsters.

        • Drew Genel

          Thanks!

      • DefensiveBastiodon

        LMFAO that’s from Yokai Watch

    • PitogoXD

      HAHAHAHAH this is so funnyy xd

    • Pharap

      Whoever designed that needs to have one of their fingers removed as punishment.

  • Wes

    Why does this site always come under fire for posting rumors? Heaven forbid a website post the exact content it’s known for and that it’s true fanbase appreciates. Anyone with even the smallest iota of a brain can see that all the precautions are there to prevent readers from believing these rumors fully, and yet people feel the need to tell PJ how to run HIS website to THEIR specifications.

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      I’m fine with people talking about it because that means we get attention AND are the topic of some conversations

      • Haxford

        Bad reputation is good reputation

      • Spetsnaz

        There might be some people who think, what’s this about? And end up joining the community 🙂

    • Ultron

      Doesn’t 4chan do the exact same thing though? Seems hypocritical.

    • ShinyXatu

      4chan will be 4chan. Once there is a negative stigma attached to something, they will never let go. So I’m not concerned about backlash at all. I’m more concerned about all the spam, to be honest.

      • Wes

        It’s not just 4chan making me mad though; I know they’ll never change. But what really got me started was Joe Merrick criticizing Paul on Twitter. When you’re as big as Joe, all your opinions suddenly become your fans’ opinions, and that’s just bad rep on our side.

        • Haxford

          That was just completely childish. He should know that this sites goal is way different.

          • Wes

            I still have some respect for Joe for dealing with various things over the years, but I’m really starting to take notice of how misplaced some of that respect really is.

        • DefensiveBastiodon

          Joe is just a dick. That’s it. No sense of humor. No fun. Arrogant. And has an obnoxious accent that you can’t understand.

          • Wes

            I actually like his accent, but I won’t disagree on your other points.

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            It’s so dirty and muddy sounding lol

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Yeah he just always comes off snobby. Like he ALWAYS know better. And then when he’s wrong about something he acts like it’s nothing, but when he’s right it’s an opportunity to tear down everyone who isn’t in full support of him.

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            If his site weren’t the best for stats and team building, I wouldn’t use it.

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Yeah I mean if he has one thing going for him it’s the organization he has.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            When it comes to that, what makes Serebii better than Bulbapedia? I actually like going to Bulba cause it seems so neatly informative. Not a fan of the former.

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            Bulbapedia is a mess. I avoid wikis as much as possible. They feel cluttered and messy with uneccesary info for what I need. Moves and stats are listed neatly on Serebii, you have to scroll through a crap ton of Manga, anime, and VG trivia just to get to stats.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Oh, I see. Got’cha.
            I like reading Pokémon trivia so I guess it never bothered me.

          • Ithsme

            C’mon though, we need to be the bigger person. Next thing you know someone is going to call out the PJ community for hating on Joe, so let’s just give it a rest, alright? 🙂

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            No

        • ShinyXatu

          I wasn’t aware that had happened. I’m even more surprised by that after the little incident in which 4chan leaked the Alolan Raichu trailer. That guy was subject to ridicule for at least a week for his remarks that 4chan is always wrong. So, under the slim chance that these new leaks are real, he is setting himself up for further embarrassment. It would be better to stay silent.

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            I haven’t heard about this? I was at work when it was leaked.

          • ShinyXatu

            Some person posted stills of the new trailer (along with a webm of Wishiwashi) on 4chan a day before it was released. Nobody really knows who could have posted it, but 4chan was where it originated.

        • Ultron

          I thought the remark Joe made toward PJ was in jest? Unless there’s something else.

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Sometimes it’s hard to tell. They definitely have a frenamy kind of relationship, but he can be pretty nasty sometimes

          • Ultron

            Yeah, I just sorta recall some sort of exchange not too long ago where Joe said something along the lines of “I just had to” after he made a shady remark

      • Pharap

        4chan can’t bother us here though, it would mean getting an account and no longer being completely anonymous.

    • Haxford

      And the most annoying thing is that people compare Serebii and PJ as if they should be the same. There is a huge difference between the two sites. PJ does post confirmed stuff of course, but rumors are also posted simply to raise discussions between the audience. It’s a discussion-site, not a fact-site.

    • Golden_Lucario

      Its very stupid indeed, people are just being whiny and aren’t understanding this website. Pokejungle is here to have a community that explores leaks and rumors, this website is innocent and isn’t there to cause harm.

    • I think it is just a circle jerk at this point. Probably just cool to hate Pokejungle

      • Pharap

        Which makes us cool delinquents.

      • DoctorBored

        This. 4chan tends to go through these long phases. By the time Sun/Moon comes out, they’ll have another bukkake session about how wrong all the rumors posted here were, and then they’ll forget about it until the rumormill starts up again for the next games.

        • Pharap

          I’m amazed that got past the censors.
          I had to type buck cake in a different part of disqus 😛

  • SpectralSeraph

    Well, I did some random browsing and found this fanmade theme
    It REALLY sounds cool :3
    Credit to Almightyarceus for this one :3

    • Shady

      Than u I like this type of music……I always hope pkmn them being more mature.

      • SpectralSeraph

        I can understand that, I just feel like based on what kind of pokemon Tapu Koko is (Hinted by the line: “Despite that, this Pokémon has a strong sense of curiosity. If it becomes interested in a person or in other Pokémon, it may come to play or battle with them.”) I feel like it’s rather fitting. But than again, maybe the other guardians will be entirely different

        (And than again, this isn’t the first time we got an unfitting theme XD)

    • Ithsme

      I really like the part that comes right before :50

      • SpectralSeraph

        In general I think this is REALLY well put together!

        (On the topic of Tapu Koko, he’s secured a place on my competitive team)

  • EarthenWarrior

    Hot damn I had one hell of a battle
    http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/nu-435522936

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    Thanks for posting rumors! They make the news drought something actually bearable. Or bewearable. XD

  • Man_Gl3

    well they did make a fighting crab and a sassy af Meowth so anything is possible. Plus it makes sense that arbok gets the fighting type because it’s supposed to be able to beat a rodent (Sanshrew is based on a rodent thing and snakes it them soooo….?).

  • Ok, no. I really want this to be fake. I want corocoro to just be starter evos and Rockruff evos. I mean, they are revealing its evolutions so it’s very likely that the starters are there too. These alolan forms fill up too much

    • Ithsme

      Well, I mean, the Kalos starter evos did come on CoroCoro I think. But it still don’t think we’ll get them until October.

      • Green
        • Ithsme

          BW release: September 18th
          XY release: October 12
          ——–
          Still not happening. 😛

          • Ultron

            At least we’re probably getting Rockruffs evo/s! I’m more excited about that considering we sorta know how the starters turn out..

          • PitogoXD

            Maybe only november, becuase it is the last corocoro.

        • Pharap

          Wouldn’t the issues being released this month technically be the ‘october’ editions?

  • Yveltal 101

    What would her team be?

    • SpectralSeraph

      I can definitely see a Lurantis

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      Who’s?

      • Ultron

        There’s a pic. It’s Lusamine.

      • Yveltal 101

        Lusamine

    • Ultron

      Aurorus
      Alolan Ninetails
      Lurantis
      Jangmo-o evo
      Turtonator
      -something else

      I’d have to see the whole Alolan dex to decide a better team 😮

      • She should have a Froslass. Her hair looks like a snorunt

        • Pharap

          Alolan Froslass would be scary.

    • Pharap

      80% unrevealed pokemon.

  • Ultron

    The sound Cresselia makes when it drops out of Hoopa’s ring sounds so much like the shiny gleam…ugh. -_-

  • What would make sense for me:

    – Water/Poison Alolan Arbok: based on the Hawaiian water snakes (Pelamis platurus)
    – Electric/Fighting Electabuzz
    – Fire/Poison Magmar

  • arivel

    magmar typing no sense. fire/ice perfect

  • belmad

    So before we got leaks, I want to share these Pokemon styled Major Arcana I found on internet. Thoth you would appreciate it

    http://oi38.tinypic.com/4js675.jpg

    Also there is this one:

    http://theblueberryblanket.deviantart.com/gallery/52554448/Pokemon-Tarot

    • Pharap

      90% of these are glorious.

  • You lost me when they said arbok ability was fighter skin ? all those type change abilties end with ate. Fake AF (rf) http://m.imgur.com/SAdH33z?r

    • Wes

      Pixilate’s Japanese name is Fairy Skin. And since these are supposed Corocoro leaks, it would be the Japanese translation.

      • Wes

        In addition, Aerilate is Sky Skin, Refrigerate is Freeze Skin, and Normalize is Normal Skin.

  • Pharap

    Those are the fakest sounding ‘rumours’ I’ve heard this year.

    If these are true I’ll wonder trade away one of my 6IV pokemon.

    • Leo

      The 6IV won’t be special anymore when SM gets released lol

      • Pharap

        I forgot about that.

        In that case I’ll breed an Arbok with 5x 0IVs, name it ‘2Chan’ and wonder trade it away.

  • Rocke

    i feel like if this is true then so be it. the more Alolan forms the better imo.
    But i think that they wont reveal the mid starter evos in corocoro. i think they’ll reveal Rockruffs eve and then on wednesday Pokemon will reveal a trailer with rockruff and the starter evos in it. i feel like that makes the most sense.

    • Spetsnaz

      I was on the starter train before, but I’m liking your idea 🙂

      “the more Alolan forms the better”

      720 Alolan forms.

      • Rocke

        now you’re getting it

        • Pharap

          And next year we can have 830 more region forms.

          • Rocke

            THERE WE GO! i like the way you think. you’re going places

          • Pharap

            And the Sinnoh remakes will get Sinnoh forms… and… and…
            *haemorrhages*

  • Michael A. Lozoya

    Hopefully not. I don’t like these rumors really. I mean my favorite thing about Arbok is it’s pattern.

  • libra

    How would a Fighting-Type Arbok work? I’m fifty-fifty on these leaks. A lot of it sounds fake, while I could see it working. I love the idea of a Fire/Grass Magmar. We’ll see in a day or so.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Actually very well if you made it a different pokemon
      Snake Style Kung Fu focusing on fluidity and precise strikes

  • Aqualate

    Ok guys my current Soulsilver team:

    Heracross lv33
    Magmar lv35
    Espeon lv35
    Murkrow lv35
    Meganium lv35
    Ampharos lv35

    Additionally I have Graveler, Gyarados and Larvitar sitting in the PC as potential team members. Thoughts?

    • Golden_Lucario

      Looks good so far

  • arivel

    no no. favorite dark electric ,extremis alola. perfect time game ..

    • Aqualate

      Seen you post couple of times now and nothing you say makes any sense. Are you another troll?

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      You’re making about as much sense as these leaks lol

  • Tsuki EastGovnah

    Electric/Fairy-type wtf?? im really surprised if its true.

  • Alca Bringer

    This are the worst leaks ever and 100% fake.

    People who believe this are …. no I don’t say this….

    • Green

      It’s just a rumor

  • Shady

    these all pkmn that’s reveled in SM …so If all Alolan r from Kanto, so just less than 50 pkmn r probable. http://i.4cdn.org/vp/1473588539472.jpg

    • DoctorBored

      I wrote this about a week ago, but some things have changed already. It’s a pretty comprehensive list of the 151 with my own theories added to further knock down the list.

      Out of the 151 original Kanto Pokemon…

      Only 10 have been revealed as new Alola forms. These include…
      Vulpix, Ninetales, Sandshrew, Sandslash, Exeggutor, Meowth, Raichu, Marowak, Rattata, and Raticate, with Persian most likely having an Alola form as well.

      And about 24 have been revealed to not have Alola forms, according to trailers and the Japanese Pokemon site. These include…
      Gyarados (and by proxy Magikarp), Spearow, Cubone, Exeggcute, Pikachu, Arcanine (and by proxy Growlithe), Alakazam (and by proxy Abra and Kadabra), Dragonite (and by proxy Dratini and Dragonair), Zubat, Pinsir, Lapras, Psyduck, Slowpoke, Poliwhirl (and by proxy, Poliwag), Hypno (and by proxy, Drowzee) and Snorlax.

      We can also probably assume that Charizard, and the other original starter Pokemon will not have Alola forms, and that the legendaries won’t either. That knocks out 9 starters and 5 legendaries, that’s another 14.

      If we go further and exclude the 12 Kanto Pokemon that have Mega Evolutions, we can knock out Aerodactyl, Kangaskhan, Ghastly, Haunter, Gengar, Weedle, Kakuna, Beedrill, Pidgey, Pidgeotto, Pidgeot, and Slowbro.

      That brings it down to 91 Pokemon that we don’t know whether they will have Alola forms or not.

      I want to take it a step farther though. I want to knock out Pokemon that have final evolutions that aren’t counted in the original 151. These include Golbat (Crobat), Oddish, Gloom, and Vileplume (Bellossom), Poliwrath (Politoed), Magnemite and Magneton (Magnezone), Onix (Steelix), Lickitung (Lickilicky), Rhyhorn and Rhydon (Rhyperior), Chansey (Blissey), Tangela (Tangrowth), Horsea and Seadra (Kingdra), Scyther (Scizor), Eevee, Vaporeon, Flareon, and Jolteon (the rest of the Eeveelutions), Electabuzz (Electivire), Magmar (Magmortar), and Porygon (Porygon 2 and Porygon-Z). That’s another 23 Pokemon that I’m pretty certain won’t get Alola forms, since if they do, their evolutions would probably get Alola forms as well that wouldn’t be in the original 151.

      Boom, we’re down to only 68 Pokemon left. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that Ditto, Kabuto, Kabutops, Omanyte, and Omastar aren’t going to get Alola forms either, being unique in their own right, which brings us to only 63 Pokemon.

      Out of the 63 Pokemon remaining, who do you think will get Alola forms or not? Your guess is as good as mine!

      Also consider that many of the later Pokemon games have populated wildlife of various generations, so it’s a bit ridiculous to assume that all of the Kanto Pokemon are going to be available in the wild in the game. It’s likely that there really won’t be all that many Alola forms. I’m going to guess maybe… 25-30 max.

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        I freaking love speculation with actual research like this.

    • Wes

      May I ask why you and other people keep insisting that Pokemon seen in trailers will be in the games? What are you basing that off of? I thought “game footage is not final” would’ve disproved all of that.

      • Tsuki EastGovnah

        alot of mons who appeared in x/y trailers were in-game

        • Wes

          A lot? If it’s not all then I don’t see the point in speculating because you wouldn’t know which are in and which aren’t.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            I checked every trailer and every old pokemon in that trailer expect for torchic( if u count events) can be caught in Kalos

          • Pharap

            Maximal respect.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            they arent that long lol. and all i did was really check the kalos dex lol and used Ctrl+F to look up names

          • Pharap

            It’s still effort.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            yea i do that alot, i like to prove points and sides to arugments alot

          • Ithsme

            Beat me to it.

      • Pharap

        Because otherwise it’s intentional deception.

        And the ‘game footage not final’ thing almost never affects anything.

        • Wes

          It’s not deceptive in the slightest. Many trailers use Pokemon specifically to showcase the strengths and weaknesses of new Pokemon or go off on a theme. In Turtonator’s reveal trailer they showed it battling other turtle Pokemon only to compare it to other turtles.

          • Pharap

            They could have picked any pokemon, they don’t need themes. It makes more sense for them to just run into the grass and battle the first pokemon they encounter.
            Putting pokemon into the wild just to showcase another pokemon is more effort than the benefit it would provide.

      • Green

        They probably just brought them in from previous games to not make it obvious.

        • Pharap

          Again, more effort than the result is worth.

      • Shady

        until now we didn’t see any alolan form while his original is exist except player’s mother Meawoth….we didn’t see orginal raichu , Marwak …..etc.

        • Tsuki EastGovnah

          meowth was there to show proof your from a other region. you just moved to Alola

          • Shady

            for sure.

      • Ithsme

        The only evidence I have is that all the Pokemon shown in the XY trailers were in the regional dex I believe, but with the amount we’re seeing I doubt it. But, I do think each island will have like 100 dex slots.

        • Tsuki EastGovnah

          the pokedex with 3 pokemon in SuMo is 1% meaning round that off you get close to 300. because ur not gonna have a 1.1% of a dex its gonna be rounded

  • Aqualate

    Rockruff evo!!! (refresh)

    • EarthenWarrior
      • Aqualate

        Shhh I want to rustle people

        • Pharap

          The jimmies are so rustled that Harambe felt them.

          • EarthenWarrior

            i’m so sick of those Harambe jokes

          • Pharap

            I thought ground types were supposed to have thick skin.

    • AlolanSandschrew

      oh wow, not too bad, was expecting worse xD! It will be in my team for sure!

    Halftime! Bears wining against Houston 14-10. Cutler, Royal, and Jeffery are doing really good!

      I have got absolutely no clue what you’re talking about.

      • Nickerton

        Basketball ofc… or hockey?

        • Pharap

          I thought they were participating in a pokemon showdown tourney or something XD

        • Wes

          Ew. The only sports I need in my life are rugby monkey Pokemon.

          • Pharap

            I used to play rugby at school.
            I get the impression monkeys would enjoy it.

        • Green

          It’s Football (American)

          • Pharap

            Damn, that’s anticlimactic.

    • Green

      Yeah! I mean… I’m not watcging it, but I’m keeping track of the score 😀

  • GymLeaderTori

    Just remember people. If these sites didn’t exist you would have to wait even longer for news. So people so salty, y’all act like you don’t know what a grain of salt is…

  • TigerMasku
    • Armaggedon16

      Not bad

    • Chaos

      That guy was so bad. Damn.

      Also you don’t have Megahorn on Scolipede? I guess it’s Swords Dance, EQ, Protect and BP.

      I remember I used the Scolipede BP strategy in OU where I would pass the boosts of to Mega Metagross and Sweep. Good times.

  • GymLeaderTori

    Well the Arbok is like to see, the others not so…

  • Ithsme

    Ok, I’m bored, so I’m going to do evolution number predictions
    ———
    Rockruff – 1
    Komala – 1
    Pikipek – 2
    Drampa – 1 Prevo
    Bruxish – 0
    Cutiefly – 1
    Salandit – 1
    Mimikyu – 0(sadly)
    Comfey – 1
    Bounsweet – 1
    Wimpod – 2
    Minior – 1
    Pyukumuku – 2
    Morelull – 1
    Turtonator – 1 prevo
    Crabrawler – 0
    Jangmo-o – 2
    ———
    Let me know what you think! 😀

    • Green

      I think Drampa will be a Standalone. Apart from. That, I agree.,

    • Armaggedon16

      I think that Turtanator and Drampa will be Standalones,and Pyukumuku will get 1 evo only.

    • Tsuki EastGovnah

      the Chinese riddler said something that “Drampa, Bruxish, Mimikyu and Salandit belong to a family. “

      • Ithsme

        So evos? Or does that mean they’re related somehow?

        • Tsuki EastGovnah

          well he said them sepratedly so im guessing pre evo and/or evo are possible

          • Ithsme

            Mimikyu having an evo sounds great!

      • Pharap

        Mimikyu belongs to the Pikachu family.

        I don’t trust the Riddler anymore.

        • Ithsme

          Not at all. Togedemaru is the regional pikachu.

          • Pharap

            You’re hurting Mimikyu’s feelings. Can’t you see it wants us to think it’s a Pikachu? Go along with it’s fantasies or it might cry ; n ;

            Or worse, it might reveal itself and strike you down with a mysterious illness.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            yea but what if evolves and it learns to love itself for what it is not what it wants to be

          • Pharap

            Then I will tell it “we no longer have anything in common” and abandon it.

        • Tsuki EastGovnah

          he said it about 3 other pokemon. so explain that

          • Pharap

            He may have only known a few and decided to carry on pretending to know more, or it might be a different person.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            its the same guy. it came from the same source

          • Pharap

            That doesn’t prove it’s the same guy, he could have got his account hacked or the account might be shared by multiple people. The account owner might not even be the person that originally had the information, he may have taken it from someone else.

    • Pharap

      Not sure about Falkor Drampa.
      I think Cutiefly and Salandit will manage 2.
      Really not sure about Comfey and Bounsweet. Bounsweet gives a bit of a 2 evo vibe.
      Wimpod looks like it will be 2, but I think that could be a bit of a wildcard.
      Unsure about Minior, but originally I expected no evolutions.
      Don’t think Turtonator will have a prevo.

      • Ithsme

        Well, mini is in the name so I expect at least one.

    • TigerMasku

      I agree with all of them except drampa and I am not certain that slandit would get only 1. I personally hope that he has 2 evos

      • Ithsme

        I’d love that, but it seems like 1 to me.

      • Pharap

        I agree, it looks too much like Sandile to only get 1.

  • Green

    People just don’t understand true fandom (refresh)

    • Ithsme

      Not to be mean, but says the guy over at 4chan lol.

    • Armaggedon16

      There’s a Disclaimer before every rumor that PokeJungle post.
      If PokeJungle’s Community is okay with it, then what’s the problem with 4chan?

    • Pharap

      It 404s 😀

      • Ithsme

        Yeah I tried it too. xD

    • belmad

      It’s really sad. Pokejungle is one of the places that deserves to be hated lastly. This site is all about love and cherry blossoms. Really really sad.

    • If Pokejungle is cancer I don’t know what 4chan is

      • MelloMori

        Aids? Cancer can be treated/cured, and some take so long to become even mildly dangerous that you’ll likely die from natural causes before it ever risks your life. Aids on the other hand pretty much ruins your life forever.

        • Green

          Treated, not cured sadly.

        • Green

          And aids is your fault, cancer is not.

  • Ithsme

    Magmar’s supposed new ability confuses me. Shouldn’t it be activated when magmar switches in, not when a partner Pokemon switches in?

    • Armaggedon16

      It’s most likely fake so who cares

  • Pharap

    I’ll just leave this here…

      This is an exact representation of how and what anything shouldn’t be.

        Eh, I didn’t make it 😛

    • How fake do they get? Faker and faker!

      • Pharap

        At least it’s more impressive than the last one, they showed a bit more.

        Whoever modelled it is a good artist.

    • Witchie

      I think it looks nice… though I am very biased. 😛

      • Pharap

        Yes, you are hella biased 😛

  • Ithsme

    I know this isn’t the place for this, but I want to continue with new leaf so badly, but I also want to live my life normally. It’s so addictive, once your in there’s no escape. Ugh. (T_T)

    • Ithsme

      Another thing: a to do list or a schedule would really help the game. It would have all the quests you’re trying to do at that moment, so you don’t just have to remember them all.

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    I’m surprised nothing has been elaborated on the firemen Blastoise. It’s such a cool concept that has been completely pushed to the side.

    • DoctorBored

      Oh yeah, that was a thing that we saw in the very first reveal trailer, in concept sketches. There were a bunch of those emergency response vehicles, but we haven’t seen much of them since.

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        Not much, we’ve seen nothing about them.

    • Ithsme

      Or just cars in general.

  • Trav11111

    This sounds interesting, but I’d like to see arbok part water instead.

    Off topic. I’m going to quit trying to find Pokemon GO info on YouTube. All the videos seem to be people spoofing the GPS, which doesn’t bother me if they really are in a rural area without much of anything. What does bug me is when they type in a code to have 10 Articunos pop up.

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    Whenever rockruff’ evo appears, I think my avatar could use some updating/evolving.

    • Ithsme

      I can’t wait for Mega Alolan Shiny Type: Null’s evolution. If that happens, my avatar needs updating.

  • Ithsme

    I’m sorry for all the off topic posts, but when do you think the NX will be revealed? I was so sure they’d reveal it by now, they’re really pushing it with a march launch at this point.

    • Tsuki EastGovnah

      October-November

      • Ithsme

        That’s highly unlikely to me. They need time to promote and advertise this thing. I mean, Microsoft announced a new console at e3 that doesn’t release for over a year now, and Nintendo has a new console in a half a year and we know absolutely nothing. If they wait that long they aren’t planning things right.

        • Tsuki EastGovnah

          Iphone 7 Has a week to advertise
          Ps4 Pro is coming out in 2 months
          Xbox Scropio is a Xbox One just with better graphics. and it wasnt yet shown to the public we just know what it does

    • TheGreatGuardian

      Perhaps it could be revealed at the Tokyo Game Show later this week?

    • Pharap

      That’s not that off topic, there are much more off topic things people have discussed 😛

    • ShinyXatu

      There’s a rumor that there will be an announcement tomorrow for a Direct on Tuesday or Wednesday.

  • Poekoko

    Bears lost, 23-14
    Defense sucked after 2nd Quarter, thus Jay Cutler couldn’t get a solid throw in.

    • Aqualate

      This is Pokejungle, not NFLjungle

      • Poekoko

        People are talking about other things then Pokemon too, just because you aren’t interested in Football doesn’t mean you have to just target me. Look rite under me, one comment has iPhone 7, PS4, and xBox mentioned, why don’t you go shoot him down too?

        • Poekoko

          Pokemon, there, ya happy?

        • Tsuki EastGovnah

          my reply involves Nintendo tho. i was explain advertising windows for other tech releases

          • Poekoko

            I know, I was just telling him to not target one person. I wasn’t trying to attack you xD

        • Pharap

          That’s guy’s having a 2-way conversation though, you’re just kind of randomly posting scores. Anyone who is interested is probably already watching.

  • Anon

    These alolan forms make little sense…then again even eating pancakes makes you adapt to the enviroment apparently lol

    • What do you mean? I broke a table after I went into a psychic frenzy caused by eating like, 5 pancakes at Ihop it was crazy

      • Ithsme

        Eggo Mini pancakes fuel my day with psychic energy.

    • Aqualate

      There’s obviously another explanation for Alola Raichu but I’m guessing they dont want to reveal it yet, or simply don’t know it themselves yet. Suspect there will be an anime episode dedicated to it.

      • Pharap

        Other than ‘the pi-kahuna’?

    • Pharap

      Unless you’re Snorlax.
      In which case you get a sugar rush.

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    Interesting…Apparently Sun and Moon have been rated officially….Well at least Moon, but that basically means they both are in a way. lol ( RF)

    • FTFY (rf)

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        How so?

    • Tsuki EastGovnah

      development is done then

      • MelloMori

        Development’s likely been done for months. The long wait it mostly to translate everything into 9 different languages.

        • This doesn’t get enough appreciation

        • Tsuki EastGovnah

          actually most games are in development till a month before release hence the term “golden”

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            yea the assets,gameplay and stuff can be done. but doesn’t mean development is done.

          • Aqualate

            Except that Sun and Moon have been in development since 2015. It was called Project: Pokemon Rainbow before they decided on the official titles.

          • Anon

            I think that they have been in developtment since before 2016, heck x and y where 6 YEARS in development and they dont look as good as these

          • Aqualate

            The concept of XY may be in mind for 6 years, but I doubt it actually took them 6 years to make it. The games were rushed in every thinkable way.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            honestly you be surprise how long games are in development for

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            Last Guardian a ps4 exclusive game has been in development since 2007 for the ps3, we are now 9 years into development and it just announced the game is now golden and ready for release

          • Aqualate

            You’re honestly comparing the development of a PS4 game with a 3DS game? Sun and Moon’s size is probably 6GB max. Thats the average size of a PS4 DLC lol.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            im not comparing just making a example. and hello? you realize x and y was development during the time black and white came out.

          • Ithsme

            Doubt it’s that size. I mean, XY was almost 2z

          • Ithsme

            2g

          • Aqualate

            XY had no endgame content apart from Kiloude City

          • Ithsme

            6gb would be great, but I say 3 max.

          • Green

            2z. The largest unit. Lol.
            (Yet XY had the least new Pokémon)

          • Anon

            By that time they should be on the last stage of the debugging and testing phase or getting the cartridges in production in order to reach every store worldwide before the date of release

          • MelloMori

            Yes and no. It depends on the game in question. Yes most games are in development until about 1-2 months before its release, in which their then sent out to make Physical copies. However Localization’s, which is what we’re talking about, don’t. They generally start as soon as the game is finished, or when the game’s nearly finished, as it was in this case. Remember back at E3 they openly said that they were playing what was effectively a finished game at the time, but had to stop due to most of the game not being translated yet.

            The game’s been finished for awhile, and its likely that its just a matter of them making the physical games now.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            im not saying the game isnt completed but the development is not over. you still got bugs and stuff to fix.

          • Aqualate

            Bugs are never fully fixed at release, hence the patch for XY to fix the Lumiose City bug.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            um yea but still they fixing alot of bugs. i rather have one bug post launch then a bunch

          • Ithsme

            Really hoping we don’t have another one of those. I wonder how that was overlooked.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            sometimes bugs come after release

          • zess

            That gave me nightmares I won’t be transferring my pokemon from Bank until at least a few weeks after release. Didn’t a few people permanently lose pokemon? *shudders*?

          • Pharap

            I’ve never trusted the bank.

          • zess

            Why?

          • Pharap

            No idea what kind of encryptions and back up systems are available and it’s effectively taking control of your pokemon out of your hands.

            If their servers break or they withdraw the service, it could be pokemon gone for good.

            Plus the hardware failure rate for servers is high because they’re running 24/7, and usually on a specific variation Linux.

          • zess

            OMG so I guess I shouldn’t keep all my eggs in one basket. Thanks for the insights Pharap.

          • MelloMori

            And I’m saying your using the word development wrong. The game has openly been said that its a finished product well at the tail end of its localizing and being moved into production. At this point any bugs that remain will be fixed in a day one patch or shortly after.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            you explained it alot better actually 🙂 maybe i did use the term wrong.

          • Ithsme

            Well, we have known the size of the guide book for months now, so that means something.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            i mean its easier to get down all the info into a book before making it into a game Xd

      • Aqualate

        Development has been done for a while (I suspect 2 months-ish) lol. They’re now just finalizing localisation, translations and shit.

    • Anon

      E?! I wanted these to be rated M ugh im cancelling my preorders and getting some other random violent game instead lel jkjk

    • Ithsme

      Is it bad that I’m sad they’re rated E? I mean, E doesn’t exactly allow for a lot of lenience in the plot.

      • Tsuki EastGovnah

        you almost died in b2w2 and it was rated E lel

        • Ithsme

          Yeah that’s true. xX

          • Ithsme

            xD

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Technically almost died in Y too. That’s the one thing I really liked about Y compared to X. It felt like there was real evil intent rather than Lysandre just trying to make you immortal lol

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            lysandre is dead in Y lol

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Well yeah that’s true lol

          • Anon

            I thought he “died” in both versions

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            nah in X its different

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            I think in X it’s implied he got a way in some capacity? Iirc that is. lol

          • Anon

            Oh then i must have not payed that much attention while playing X

        • Pharap

          Death – fine.
          Slot machines – nope!

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        they’re always rated E. They probably always will be lol

    • Daniel

      Interesting they didn’t update the summary from previous versions.. become a champion.

  • Pharap

    Someone on 4chan just predicted Pikkipek will evolve into ‘Pokkipek’.

    I am officially done with rumours.

    • Aqualate

      Lol the Pikipek stuff is just all over the place. Some leaks say its gonna be Steel/Flying, others saying it’ll remain Normal/Flying and I even saw someone saying it’ll be Poison/Flying.

      • Pharap

        That’s not even the worst bit.
        Their grammar and spelling are atrocious XD

        https://boards.4chan.org/vp/thread/28435723

        • Aqualate

          In this person’s defense, he/she might just not be native English. But still those leaks look weird af

          • Pharap

            Doesn’t explain the vowels being dropped like that. Maybe they’re dyslexic.

            The Rockruff thing sounds lame and I never really liked the idea of the mushroom taking over Parasect to begin with, let alone the idea it might actually be dead.

          • Aqualate

            ”Alola Golduck is water/psychic because it trained with Raichu and Sloking” yeah this is fake

          • Pharap

            Unless it’s like Pancham…
            That’s a scary thought.
            I’m going to stop before I jinx it.

          • Aqualate

            Pancham is cute

          • Pharap

            I mean how it only evolves through the influence of Dark pokemon.

            Pancham is one of my favourite fighting types.

      • Pharap

        I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

        Seriously though, people won’t let Ash Greninja go.

  • Ben

    I find it funny that PJ is getting so much hate lately, and yet nobody bats an eye at GameXplain for their nonstop NX rumor mill.

    I love GX, don’t get me wrong, but maaaaaan they’ve been obnoxious lately.

    • Tsuki EastGovnah

      Obe1plays is a non stop NX rumor mill

    • MelloMori

      Really you have to feel bad for Derik? Derick? I don’t know how to spell his name, but you do have to feel for him as he’s openly admitted that with every rumor he has to make a video for, he dies a little inside and really just wants them to reveal the thing so he doesn’t have to make those videos any more.

      Then again, they do keep bring up Emily Rogers as a reliable source of rumors, when sh’es lost most credibility. So maybe he deserves it a bit.

      • Ithsme

        I really want to new trailer analysis. Curious as to why it’s not up yet honestly.

        • Ben

          Derrek just got back from vacation. Well-deserved, I’d say, after that 2+ hour Zelda analysis.

          • MelloMori

            Yeah. He had to delay it just to do a quick talk with Serebii Joe of the last batch of news.

          • Ithsme

            True, I’m just greedy for more info.

      • Ben

        Yeah, they really gotta stop the whole Emily Rogers thing. But I do feel bad for Derrek. I follow him on Twitter and he seems like a cool guy who works REALLY hard to keep up and also please fans at the same time.

    • Anon

      Im sad because GX wont be doing an analysis of the latest trailer but he deserves the vacation so i can wait for the next one

      • Ithsme

        It’s not happening at all?

        • Anon

          From what i understood he said something like “I apologize because i wont be making an analysis on this trailer because i had a vacation planned and already delayed it to have this discussion”

          • Ithsme

            That sucks. The cinematic trailer we got a few days ago was packed with info for analysis.

      • Ben

        Maybe he’s waiting for this week’s news to be revealed before covering them all at once.

        • Anon

          Hopefully!

  • Ithsme

    Speaking of file size, when did we get the file size of XY? In other words, when can we expect to get file size? I’d assume late October, when the predownload probably begins.

    • Pharap

      When the game’s released if they get the demo right.

    • Anon

      They always anounce it a few weeks before release i guess that it’s for people that will download the digital copy know how much space they need

      • Pharap

        Forgot about that. Touché.

    • Tsuki EastGovnah

      August 1st

      • Tsuki EastGovnah

        is when x/y file size came out

      • Ithsme

        So I’m guessing we’all get it in October. September can’t go fast enough, nothing interesting is happening.

        • Tsuki EastGovnah

          we got 2 trailers in a week, and a trailer+Corocoro this week idk wym by not interesting XD

          • Ithsme

            I mean other than SM info. Like no holidays (coming up), no breaks, no game releases.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            well i play every console so i got alot of releases coming

          • Ithsme

            Yeah I pretty much just play Nintendo stuff.

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            I play nintendo alot more but im a sucker for other games lol

  • Green

    Ok. So. I’ve seen two instances where people challenged others to battle for PJ League here. I have an idea. I do this all the time, but keep the forums open in another tab at all times when you’re on Pokejungle, then you’ll see if someone wants to challenge you.

    • go to the forums then so we can bettle

      • Green

        I’m not at home…. 🙁
        I will be in like 1 and a half hours. I REALLY want to battle someone….

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    these rumours are like UFOs. Way out there and never see one land

    • Spetsnaz

      Great way to put it lol

  • Sting Eucliffe Official

    These rumours are so confusing but The MagMar one seems cool

  • Anon

    Btw idk if this has been discussed before but has anyone else noticed that there is a poster of alolan exeggutor in lilycove hotel in oras?

    • Ithsme

      Link? (Image)

      • Anon

        K brb

        • Ithsme

          Thanks.

    • Anon

      Here’s the poster (rf)

      • Anon

        Weird the image rotated itself

      • Ithsme

        Huh. Weird.

      • belmad

        I think it’s not an Alolan Exeggcutor itself, it’s just an ordinary palm tree. Exeggcutor has tinier and more leaves than what is depicted here and not mentioning the lack of legs or any base body part. However it still can be an easter egg for the upcoming Hawaiian region, or maybe the idea.

        • Ithsme

          But it has Exeggutor heads.

          • belmad

            From what I see it has coconuts. I count two.

          • Anon

            Well its just a pixelated poster it wouldnt be so detailed

          • Pharap

            I don’t think they are, but I think it was done on purpose regardless.

  • Tsuki EastGovnah

    im gonna love the day I can put my AS for good and play moon for a year or 2 till the next one

    • Ithsme

      Won’t we all. I’m sick of having Y be my storage area, but I’m not buying bank until November.

    • Aqualate

      Sun and Moon will receive 1/10 because too much water

      • Pharap

        Never understood that argumant about Hoenn.

        Meanwhile in Wind Waker…

        • Tsuki EastGovnah

          Wind Waker was just right amount tho.

          • Pharap

            I’m not criticising Wind Waker, I’m just pointing out water isn’t a bad thing. Peacefully exploring the ocean was one of my favourite things about that game, that’s as close to open world as Zelda had gotten until recently (maybe on par with Ocarina).

            Wind Waker is still probably my favourite Zelda game (or at least on par with Majora’s Mask, Ocarina Of Time and maybe Twilight Princess. Breath Of The Wild looks good though, might have to save up for a Wii U).

          • Poekoko

            Wait for NX at this point

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            i was making a joke. Wind Waker is my second favorite zelda (Next to Skyward Sword yes shoot me). But Understand the main focus of wind waker was the sailing to island ORAS was pokemon adventure but the water segments i think ign found was tedious even tho it wasnt bad at all

          • Wes

            The encounter rate on water even seemed lower than usual (although I may be imagining that).

          • Pharap

            “Skyward Sword” :C The world was smaller than Koholint.

            ORAS/RS were fine. You only have to surf travel 4 times and they’re all short bursts. Lilycove -> Mossdeep, Mossdeep -> Cavern, Cavern -> Sootopolis, Sootopolis -> Evergrande. (I think).

        • Haxford

          In Wind Waker there literally IS too much water. After a while it started to bug me and I just let my bf do it.

          • Aqualate

            Wind Waker’s setting was an ocean, so there’s never too much water. And besides, WW also happens to be the one of the best games in the Zelda franchise <3

          • Haxford

            Yeah I get that, it just annoyed me a tiny bit.
            And indeed, I think it is the best one 🙂

          • Pharap

            I like the sailing. Besides, you can teleport.

      • Ithsme

        Gen 8 will be landlocked with no lakes, no rivers, and even no water starter.

    • Ithsme

      Diamond and Pearl doesn’t deserve the lowest score. 🙁 Also this was random but interesting. xD

    • Ben

      Honestly, does any score from IGN mean anything anymore?

      • Natsu

        Not since Black and White. They gave X/Y a 9/10… -_- while other reviewers gave it an 8/10 at best. Some were even as low as 6’s and 7’s.

        • Aqualate

          X/Y 9/10? I mean, it looked great and all and most of the Pokemon designs were very good. But the game was too easy and too short. Imo 6/10 at best

          • Aqualate

            But admittedly, the XY anime is the best in the entire series imo.

          • Natsu

            Rule of thumb: bland story in-game equates to epic story telling in the anime. Unless your DPP because you managed to do both the games and anime justice.

          • Aqualate

            Agreed, gen 4 games+anime were both top notch.

          • zess

            Those are my favorite especially Platinum.

          • Poketard101

            For me it was a 10/10 I loved it. <3 😀 For me the lowest should be for Diamond/Pearl and Platinum. Those games infuriated, and kind of bored me to no end. I'd say they were a 4/10 for me. (Who knows maybe I might like them better, when they do a remake. But I'm not going to hold my breath. I will hold my breath for a Yellow version remake though. THAT is a game I would LOVE to see be remade, with the Sun/Moon game graphics. 😀 )

          • Ithsme

            For me:
            RB – 5/10
            GSC – 10/10
            RSE – 8.5/10
            DPPt – 9.5/10
            BWBW2 – 9/10
            XY – 6/10

          • Haxford

            For me:
            RB – 6/10
            GSC – 8/10
            RSE – 8.5/10
            DPPt – 9/10
            BWBW2 – 9/10
            XY – 7/10

          • Pharap

            Loose score:
            RB – 4/10
            XY – 6/10
            BW – 7/10
            GS – 7/10
            RS – 8/10

        • PercyEspeon

          I would give it 8/10 at best, I would have given it a 9 due to hype but looking back on it now, it had some problems, but I still enjoy it

          • Natsu

            Pros:
            – Transition from 2D to 3D
            – Graphics, attention to detail, no longer grid-locked, and great animation for Pokemon in-battle
            – Fresh while managing to give players a dose of what made the originals iconic
            – Amped up the meta scene via Mega-evolution, stat changes to older Pokemon, Fairy-type Pokemon, and move pool changes to older Pokemon
            – World building
            – Potential for the story was massive much like Sun/Moon
            – Hype was extreme

            Cons:
            – Story was bland
            – Region felt muted and too village-like which was contrasted by Hoenn with its bright colors and vibrancy
            – Conventional and boring characters
            – Team Flare was a massive let down
            – Repetitive
            – Only two active sub plots: Team Flare and Mega Evolution Arc

          • Pharap

            -I wasn’t happy about the 3D transition originally. Now I’m half and half.

            -Didn’t like mega evos.

            -Fairy type was the best bit.

            -The story wasn’t bland per se, just not handled properly. It was pushed aside until right near the end.

            -Team flare looked good but in the end were just another Team Rocket

            -I don’t even consider mega evolution to be an arc. It was just “magic stones, here you go, have fun”.

    • Haxford

      DP and BW should be way higher on that list.

    • Aqualate

      Despite Best Wishes was absolutely horrendous, Black and White (and the sequels) were absolute quality.

      • Ithsme

        I agree. Gen 5 is underrated.

        • Natsu

          Gen 5 is the pinnacle of story telling in Pokemon while managing to keep it, “Rated E for everyone.” It gave us some of the most iconic characters since the originals: N, Ghetsis, etc…

          • Aqualate

            Indeed, which makes the anime being shit af even more shameful imo

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            the anime was such garbage

          • Tsuki EastGovnah

            we almost died too.

    • Tsuki EastGovnah

      Gen 4 was my favorite. honestly D/P had its issues but Platinum fixed it so much.

      • People get so caught up in D/P. Platinum is so good though

  • So I was getting the left overs in ORAS and found Drake talking to mr Briney on the boat. I didn’t even know any of this existed

    • MelloMori

      Heck I just randomly found the U-turn tm in my game today. Really for all the crap I’ll give ORAS, it really is full of content and nice extras.

    • Ithsme

      I had no idea until now.

    • Pharap

      Rings a bell, I think that might have been in the original. I don’t know though.

  • Ithsme

    Here’s my idea for the demo “trial” version:
    – Same thing as E3 footage
    – pick a starter at your house where you start
    – no evolution
    – can only catch one other Pokemon
    – stop after hau’s battle
    ——–
    What do you think a demo would include?

    • I bet someone is going to grind the starters up to 100 like they did with ORAS

      • Ithsme

        I’d do it. I have nothing to do with my life. But no evolution. And maybe even stops learning moves at 10.

    • Anon

      Then deletes itself so that it cant be datamined 😉

      • Natsu

        Data-mining ruined the after-party 🙁

        • Ithsme

          I was not invited to this party.

      • Pharap

        That won’t work unless it manually zeroes the memory, which would require overruling the driver.

    • Wes

      I hope it’ll be an example trial (not one that’ll be in the game) with a starter and one or two Pokemon gifted to you. I don’t want something that’s actually a part of the story.

      • Ithsme

        Yeah that’d be good too. Like ORAS did.

        • Wes

          Precisely. Besides the data mining, I really thought the demo was perfect.

          • Ithsme

            But really though, the only way they could prevent data mining would be to build the demo from the ground up, so I bet there’s no demo until the game’s release.

  • AuroraLights493

    GAAAAH!
    SO cannot wait for CoroCoro!!!

    SOON…..

    Pwetty pwease? xD

    • Ithsme

      I’m willing to bet we get it anywhere from 4 hours from now to 8 hours from now.

      • Natsu

        I remember staying up till 4 in the morning waiting for XY news and had school that very morning at 7… CoroCoro leaked the day after…

        • Ithsme

          Haha, I hope my Gamestop does a midnight release for SM; I’d go to that, even though I do have school the next day. I mean, they did it with XY for me, but I didn’t go.

    • Pharap

      Gonna be monday like I anticipated.

    • Pharap

      The SM localisation team are pretty bad.

        Yahoo Rock On Earthen! XD

  • Aqualate

    Dang Ho-Oh!

    • Aqualate

      Scratch that, I caught it!

  • Aqualate

    I absolute love Zebstrika! Its definitely one of my more favourite Electric types.

  • Aqualate

    Corocoro leaks are here!! This is not a drill (refresh)

    • Green

      Booo!!!!!

    • zess

      Well you’re not wrong?

    • PercyEspeon

      Bruh, why? D: My heart leaped up for a second

    • Shady

      I didn’t even refresh.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I’LL KILL YOU I’LL KILL YOU AND YOUR ENTIRE BLOODLINE!!!!!!!

      • Aqualate

        I have a bulky Aegislash protecting me

        • TheGreatGuardian

          Aegislash is still weak to Earthquake tho. :p

    • Pharap

      That material corroding your armour?
      That’s my tears.

    • why just why

      🙂

      • Shady

        I like ur name.

    • TheGreatGuardian

      No, this very much is a drill. A HORN DRILL TO YO FACE.

      Seriously though, it’s almost seven in Japan, the leakers are probably about to start work (their actual jobs). I’d wait until lunch time (5-7 hours from now) before I start expecting leaks.

  • Aqualate

    Jokes aside guys. My expectations for Corocoro:

    Rockruff evo
    1 or 2 Alola formes
    1 new Pokemon

    Thoughts?

    • Ben

      This is realistic. I can see it happening. Maybe 2 new Pokémon? One being an evolution of one that we’ve already seen?

      • Ben

        Then again…I guess that would be Rockruff evo xD Lol whoops

        • TheGreatGuardian

          We’re definitely getting Rockruff’s evolved form, Corocoro said they’ll have a poster with it (the evolved form). I’m guessing the poster will have something to do with the Sun and Moon anime.

          • Aqualate

            Yeah Rockruff evo is 100% being revealed

    • TheGreatGuardian

      Sounds possible, but I feel like we’ll get more. My guesses:

      Rockruff Evo
      Cutiefly Evo
      Maybe starter evos/finals
      Possibly a brand new Pokemon.
      1-2 Alolan forms, maybe 3.

    • Pharap

      Prefer new pokemon to alolans.

      • Aqualate

        Yep so do I

      • Aqualate

        Although I absolutely love Alola Raichu and Ninetales

        • Pharap

          I’d prefer a pure ice Ninetales and I’d be ok with Raichu if it weren’t for the tail surfing.

          • Chaos

            Nothing is OK about Alolan Raichu.

            I do agree that Nintetail should be oure Ice though.

          • Aqualate

            Yup but Game Freak’s explanation for the part Fairy typing makes sense I guess

          • Pharap

            What exactly is their explanation, there isn’t one on the official website as far as I can see.

          • Aqualate

            The mountain it lives on is revered as a holy region, which would give it its magical (or Fairy) powers.

          • Pharap

            I don’t buy that. Ghosts fine, ‘holy’ stuff – nope.

          • Aqualate

            ”They are treated as sacred emissaries”

          • Pharap

            The beliefs of humans have no bearing on a pokemon’s true abilities.

            They might be treated as sacred for being fairy, but they are not fairy because they’re treated as being sacred. If it worked like that you could worship any pokemon to make it a fairy.

          • Pharap

            I’m okay with the eyes, ears and psychic abilities. I’d want an explanation for them though, like its brain becoming supercharged with electricity or something.

          • Aqualate

            I think they might do an anime episode about it, fully explaining this. At this point I actually think GF themselves dont have a really good explanation for the Psychic typing.

          • Pharap

            Only the pi-kahuna explanation, which I don’t like.

  • Haxford

    Something that I was wondering about:
    Why do we have normal prevolutions of Alolan Forms? It doesn’t make sense at all if a Fire/Ghost Marowak (adapted to its surroundings) got a Ground Cubone. Do you think they will eventually show the whole evolution lines being Alolan Forms? It just bugs me because it’s one of the things that makes least sense in Sun and Moon yet.

    • zess

      My thoughts exactly.

    • Pharap

      Because they got lazy.

    • MelloMori

      Well the thing is there is a certain sort of logic in it. IN the Cubone case, its a reference to a Hawaiian folklore. Basically its said that at night a band of wandering fallen warriors walk the islands, protecting the people while they sleep. If you encounter them at night, you must bow your head to them, otherwise they’ll see you as a foe and kill you on the spot, adding you to their ranks. The only way to survive without bowing is if a member of your family is already among them, as they can vouch for you.

      The same idea applies here. Their ghosts that aim to protect their decedents from their natural foes, grass types.

      • Haxford

        Sounds fair. I just hope they’ll make a Fire(/Ghost) Cubone since it’d make more sense in my eyes.
        Just watched the other Alolan Forms and they all share a type with their prevolutions (Raichu electric, Exeggutor grass, etc.) so they can stay the way they are now.

        • MelloMori

          Their not though. The entire idea of Marowak’s alolan form is to become a fire type that protects the little cubone’s that can’t defend themselves against grass types. That would kind of defeat the purpose of that flavor text if they made an Alolan cubone.

          • Haxford

            Oh I actually didn’t know that… Thanks!

          • Aqualate

            Alola formes are basically Pokemon’s version of animals adapting to their enviroment, you should see it like that.

          • Haxford

            Yeah I know and that’s why at first I didn’t get the fact a Fire/Ghost type would get a Ground type since it got adapted.

          • MelloMori

            No worries. DF has really been on point with its flavor text explaining the Alolan Forms. Really other then Raichu, most people love them. Raichu on the other hand is something that Science simply can’t explain. Most readers though read it as it ate to many pancakes.

    • EarthenWarrior

      We don’t know for sure

  • Shady
    • EarthenWarrior

      Snake Boxing is a very real thing btw

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      i screamed

    • Pharap

      I’ve changed my mind, this is worse than that 4chan thing I found.

  • joker90

    I know that usually we get starters evo the month before the game are out, but if these starters really have some secret to share with Rockruff, they shoud be revealed before. I mean if it’s true thar corocoro will reveal rockruff evolution secret it would be really mean from them to say: This is what will happen but wait two months to see it”

  • Anon

    So with all this arbok rucus i just discovered that the pokedex entry that mentions arbok having different patterns between regions is true, arbok’s sprites and models have never been the same betweem each game, it’s not important but it’s a neat little detail i hadnt noticed 🙂

    • EarthenWarrior

      Also one interesting note that not once states its toxicity

    • Pharap

      They’re not massive changes to be fair.

    • Reece

      Same thing is said about Mantyke however I don’t believe they’ve had any sprite changes in Gen V or VI

      • Anon

        Hey yeah weird maybe they just didnt want to change the 🙂 face mark haha

  • zeldaoreonerd

    The last bit of the Arbok rumor, specifically the part mentioning how it’s exclusive to Sun while Sandslash is exclusive to Moon, is what interests me most. If proven true by the next set of CoroCoro scans, then I believe it’s highly likely we will see an Alolan Arcanine, as we already have an Alolan Ninetales that’s been revealed. And correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think we’ve heard of any version exclusives apart from Totem Pokemon in trials. Either this is the month they reveal some or they are keeping it a surprise for release.

    • Pharap

      How does that prove the Alolan Arcanine thing exactly?
      No rumours have mentioned these three as alolans before.

      • TheGreatGuardian

        Because Ninetales and Arcanine are a version exclusive pair? Where growlithe is found in one game, vulpix is in the other.

        • Pharap

          There’s no proof of that. That’s just taking a leap of faith.

          • The Last Kurusu

            It is true in HG/SS but not sure of other games

          • Pharap

            It was in the original R/G R/B games, not in yellow though. Apart from those (and GS) and their remakes I don’t think it ever has been since.

          • Aqualate

            Growlithe and Vulpix were version exclusives up until gen 3 with FireRed and LeafGreen the last games.

          • Pharap

            As I said Below. Red/Green, Red/Blue, Gold/Silver, and their remakes. Not in Yellow, not in RSE, not in DPPt, not in BWB2W2, not in XY, and not in any spinoffs.

          • TheGreatGuardian

            RGB, FRLG and HGSS would all like a word with you. In all of them, the Vulpix line is in one, the growlithe line is in the other. If Arcanine is in the game, it would make sense for it to be a version exclusive.

            Having said that, there are Famitsu scans that say that the Pokemon listed on the official site are found in their original forms, Arcanine inclusive.

          • Pharap

            Already discussed that with two other people. The games in which they are not version exclusive outnumber the games in which they are version exclusive, epecially if you don’t count remakes.

            The rumour called for Arcanine to be water type, which would mean a version exclusive pairing between them wouldn’t make sense because one would be Ice type and one would be Water type, meaning they couldn’t occupy the same location. In the games in which they were version exclusive, they were both Fire type and both occupied the same location.

            I would be inclined to agree with Famitsu on this one, it would be a waste uploading pokemon data just to take it down again and replace it with something else. As far as I’m aware, the sites haven’t done that so far.

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      I don’t think the totem Pokemon are version exclusive- I think they just depend on when you encounter them.

      • Pharap

        I’m pretty sure the trailer implied they were.

        • Rockcrawdaunt

          It said that depending on the time of day. Moon is not purely night so you would have a chance with either.

          • Pharap

            It said “Certain Events Will Play Out Differently” and had the version symbols underneath to indicate version exclusives.

  • Ithsme

    In all seriousness, we have over 40 new Pokemon so far, yet not one ice or dark type. CoroCoro better give us at least one of those, I’m itching to see a new ice type.

    • Chaos

      Not counting Alolan forms

    • MelloMori

      the riddler leaker has pretty much confirmed a new ice type though, so there’s some closure in that.

    • Anon

      I only see 1 or 4 new ice types since the only snowy place is that mountain top

      • Ithsme

        Give use two or three lines. Actually how about a three stage? We haven’t had one of those in a while.

        • Anon

          Lol true last one was the vanillite line

        • Pharap

          We’ve only ever had 3 third stage ice pokemon, and one is a disappointing icecream..

    • Pharap

      51 including alolans and discounting Zygarde and alt forms.

      41 discounting the alolans.

      • Natsu

        Pokemon Sun & Moon:

        – Number of Pokemon we’ve known thus far: 42

        – Number of Alolan Pokemon: 10

        – Number of Pokemon w/ supposed evolutions and guardians: 56

        – Number of Alolan Pokemon + known Pokemon + Ultra Beasts: 53

        – Number of Pokemon altogether: 67

        • Pharap

          I presume you’re counting the unnamed cutiefly evo with that 42?

          • Natsu

            Even without counting the supposed Cutiefly evolution we would have 41, I just wasn’t sure where you got the 37 from.

          • Pharap

            I was in the middle of editing and double checking. I counted 3 times and the second time I missed 3 of the legendaries and something else.

            I went 41 -> 37 -> 41

          • Natsu

            I forgot Bounsweet and Comfey existed. xD

          • Pharap

            I was counting boxes on the official website to reduce the chance of forgetting things 😛

      • Ithsme

        I’m obviously not counting the Alola forms, we have ice types and dakr types there.

        • Pharap

          I get the impression gamefreak are if you know what I mean.

          • Ultron

            Like how they totally counted megas as pokemon in the abysmal gen 6 set of new ones.

          • Pharap

            Precisely. The megas were worse though because the pokemon can’t stay in mega form indefinately.

            When it comes down to it pokemon games are about the story, the landscape and the new pokemon, not matter how many gimmicks get thrown at it. (Pokedex and metagame included in ‘pokemon’)

          • Ultron

            True, although I’m not going to lie, part of why Gen 5 is so great to me is due to the huge number of pokemon. But Gen 6 actually would’ve been stomachable if the story was good too. It has probably the best regional dex of any game we’ve seen.

          • Ultron

            And when I say regional, I don’t mean just Kalos, I mean the entire selection we had to choose from

          • Pharap

            I felt the G5 pokemon were quite hit and miss. Some I loved (like Galvantula and Zebstrika) but others I thought were just plain weird (like Sigilyph). And I didn’t like the way some of them closely paralleled G1 pokemon. Gigalith=Golem, Gurdurr=Machamp, Garbador=Muk.

          • Ultron

            Yeah, some of them were downright bad. But I think the goods outweighed the bad, at least to me. With Gen 6 had so little that the bad ones were about even with the good, which is why I feel meh about them all.

          • Pharap

            Only one I hated is Avalugg (and maybe Sylveon and Barbaracle), everything else I like or am okay with. Some were pointless like Dedenne and Carbink, but some became my favourites like Aromatisse, Pangoro, Gogoat, Talonflame, Aurorus and Trevenant.

            G5 had gems like Galvantula, Jellicent, Eelektross, Chandelure, Heatmor, Genesect and Swoobat, (and maybe Zoroark) but everything else was really mixed.

            Cryogonal and Beartic are two of my most hated pokemon, the Haxorus line is one of my least favourite dragon lines, Amoongus ruined what could have been a cool mushroom pokemon, Garbador and the ice creams were bad, Archeops got ruined by its ability (otherwise it would be my favourite fossil pokemon), Maractus is ugly, Sigilyph is ugly, Basculin is pointless… the list goes on.

    • Ultron

      Right? I’m getting a little peeved. Unless there’s an amazing dark/electric type, this might be the worst generation for dark types.

  • Aqualate

    This just came to me, but I feel Jangmo-o evolves into Dragon/Water

    • Pharap

      That would be weird.

      It’ll be fighting, steel, dark or psychic, assuming it doesn’t grow wings.

      • Aqualate

        But its an Hawaiian dragon, they live in water

        • Pharap

          Raichu is now a surfing mouse, I don’t think gamefreak care about logic anymore.

      • Ithsme

        Fighting makes zero sense. Honestly I was thinking Dragon Rock.

        • Natsu

          If you read its description on the official site, the characteristics of Jangmo-o allude to many attributes very much apparent in Fighting-type Pokemon, so most are basing their Fighting-typing from those descriptions.

          • Pharap

            Yeah, also one of my reasons for Steel.

            It seems more like a knight than a dragon.

          • Aqualate

            Braviary is also described as a proud warrior, yet its not part Fighting

          • Natsu

            But that’s more or so the description of most raptor, bird of prey Pokemon.

          • Aqualate

            Fair enough, but seeing as Jangmo-o is a Hawaiian dragon, Water type is most logical

          • The Last Kurusu

            One thing that angers me How Staraptor and Braviary sound like fighting types, act like them, and can learn Close combat and yet are not even close to being them!!

          • Aqualate

            Starraptor is literally the best bird ever. But I am biased, because it is by far my favourite bird and actually my #2 favourite Pokemon overall

          • The Last Kurusu

            It still could work as Fighting

          • Aqualate

            Yes Flying/Fighting. Cant say that Hawlucha is useless 😉

          • The Last Kurusu

            Yeah it learns the only dual typed move and is almost exclusively for it (excluding Pikachu Libre)

        • Pharap

          Crabrawler being pure fighting makes no sense either, but point taken.

          Rock is plausible because of the terrain.

          • Ithsme

            Yeah it should be bug or grass.

          • Aqualate

            Ugh Bug/Dragon is one of my dreams

          • Anon

            Yanmega was the perfect opportunity

          • Aqualate

            Still rooting for Mega Yanmega

          • Pharap

            I’d rather they alt-form it via region forms or some other means.

          • Ithsme

            Yeah me too, but I meant crabrawler. XD

          • Pharap

            Should be part water because it’s a crustacean and crustaceans have gills. Even woodlice.

        • Anon

          It has the spirit and courage of a young warrior but that doesnt really mean fighting as many pokemon are mentioned to be courageous

          • Ithsme

            Plus it’s quadrapedal which makes it extra unlikely.

          • Pharap

            Cobalion, Terrakion, Verizion, Keldeo.

          • Anon

            Oh true lol

          • Ithsme

            . . . Make zero sense either.

          • Pharap

            They all have horns on their head.

            Maybe it’s not a heart after all…

      • Colin James

        I think Dragon/Steel is the right call

        • Pharap

          That was my original thought when I fist saw it because of the grey and the scales, and it living near ore deposits.

  • Spetsnaz

    I’m glad I’ve got 2 babies here to keep me distracted until the leaks…

    • Haxford

      Hmm maybe I should get two babies too then…

    • Pharap

      I’d rather be dying through lack of leaks.

    • Chaos

      Babies are awesome. I want one, but apparently it takes two to tango.

      • Spetsnaz

        My twins are my first kids, so I can only imagine what having 1 is like, 2 isn’t very hard once you get used to it 🙂

        • Chaos

          I love kids, and kids love me for some reason. I can literally spend hours entertaining a child. My only hope is that they are well behaved.

  • Natsu

    Typings/Pokemon I want to see in Sun/Moon:
    – Fairy/Poison: a Fairy Pokemon banished to the human world, forever destined to live in the pollution and darkness of the mortal world
    – Dragon/Bug: a European dragon Pokemon with antennas and huge dragon-fly like wings that gleam with multiple colors
    – Steel/Normal: a mouse Pokemon inspired by a computer mouse with a long wire for a tail and metallic fur that can morph shape depending on the situation (sharp, dull, needle-like, etc…)
    – Psychic/Electric: an atom Pokemon with a psychic field and electrons and protons around it
    – Bug/Ice: a parasitic bug that lives off by draining the life force of other Pokemon by taking advantage of its small size and due to its similar appearance to a snow flake, these bug Pokemon fall down from the skies akin to snow flakes and then latch onto their host

    • Aqualate

      THIS! Getting hyped now!

    • Ithsme

      I want Poison/Electric, Fire/Ice, Bug/Dragon, and Poison/Dragon.

    • Pharap

      Too many fairies already, save the fairy till next time.

      Psychic Electric and Bug Ice I could go for.

      • Aqualate

        Too many Fairies? They make up 5% of the entire Pokedex. Its the third rarest typing, behind Ghost and Ice.

        • Pharap

          That’s not factoring in the new fairy types.

          Mimikyu, Magearna, Tapu Koko, Cutiefly, Morelull, Cutiefly’s evo… that’s already 6/41 of the new pokemon, and not accounting for the alolans – Raichu and NineTales. So 8/51 effectively, and we’re bound to get more.

          • Aqualate

            I get why people are against them, they’re too powerful imo. BUT I LOVE THEIR DESIGNS SO MUCH. SOOOO PRETTY

          • Pharap

            I’m not against them, I’m in favour of balance.

          • Aqualate

            They did it right in gen 2 with Steel and Dark. Not too much of both to really balance it out.

          • Pharap

            Yeah.

            Like I say, 15.6% of the pokemon introduced so far in Alola are part Fairy, so I think they should wait before cramming any more in. Finish the evo lines of the revealed ones and add no more until G8.

          • Pharap

            Amendment: 13.7%

          • Aqualate

            Imo they should add a 3rd weakness to Fairies. Fire is my best guess

          • Pharap

            I’d go for ghost because they’re both considered ‘spirits’ and ghosts are dark spirits.

          • Aqualate

            Also possible but Fairy types only do 0,5 dmg against Fire types

          • Pharap

            Yeah, I’ve noticed that. Makes no sense.

          • Aqualate

            I think its because in myths, Fairies tend to live near forests, which are easily destroyed by flames.

          • Pharap

            An odd ruling.

            Also more logic for their relations to ghosts:

            “One popular belief was that they were the dead.[26] This noted that many common points of belief, such as the same legends being told of ghosts and fairies, the sídhe in actuality being burial mounds, it being dangerous to eat food in both Fairyland and Hades, and both the dead and fairies living underground.[27] Diane Purkiss observes an equating of fairies with the untimely dead who left “unfinished lives”.[28]
            One tale recounted a man caught by the fairies, who found that whenever
            he looked steadily at one, the fairy was a dead neighbor of his.[29]
            This was among the most common beliefs expressed by those who believed
            in fairies, although many of the informants would express the belief
            with some doubts.[30]”

          • LinksDaydream

            Raichu isn’t a fairy type

          • Pharap

            I forgot myself because someone said it was earlier.
            Ironically I corrected them 😛

            So 7/51 = 13.7%

    • The Last Kurusu

      I want Fire/Ice, Ground/Fighting, Fairy/Poison

    • Haxford

      My biggest desires are:
      Poison/Electric (scorpion)
      Rock/Dragon (dragon)
      Steel/Poison (venomous robot)
      Ghost/Rock (something you find in a temple)
      Fire/Electric (cheetah or leopard)

      • Aqualate

        Tyrantrum? XD

        • Haxford

          Omg completely forgot him. I had a Jangmo-o evolution in mind haha

          • Aqualate

            Jangmo-o Dragon/Water, fairly certain of it tbh

          • Haxford

            I’m hoping for steel, rock or indeed water

          • Aqualate

            Ugh I’d love a dragon/steel. I saw some cool fanart of Steel type Alola Dragonite

          • Colin James

            I feel like Jangmo-o is gonna be Dragon/Steel

  • Aqualate

    In how many hours would Corocoro leak? I’m asking cause its past midnight here (currently 00:57am)

    • Natsu

      It’s almost 8:00 AM there so wait 4 – 8 more hours. Probably best to go sleep.

      • Pharap

        Should be 9am, their time zone is UTC+09:00

        Wait, forgot daylight savings time.

        • Natsu

          Oh… I was going by GMT+09:00

          • Pharap

            I double checked. Daylight savings time threw me off.

          • Natsu

            Ahh. I just checked UTC and got the same time, so I was confused.

          • Pharap

            I’m in a UTC+00:00 country and it’s midnight here, but I forgot because of daylight savings we’re an hour behind so I’m effectively in UTC-01:00

          • Pharap

            No, wait, UTC+01:00. I think.
            I don’t know. I hate daylight saving time.

      • Aqualate

        Good advise, just finishing up a movie xD

    • Chaos

      There’s no specific time, cos it’s not an official release, so it’s impossible to give an accurate time. Leaks can come whenever they please.

    • Pharap

      Your time zone is UTC+01:00

      • Aqualate

        Yes its 01:00am now

        • Pharap

          Japan is UTC+09:00

    • Haxford

      Netherlands!! ??

      • Aqualate

        YA

  • The Last Kurusu

    Hey anyone want to battle not for the tournament but for fun still at Lv.50 of course

  • Ithsme

    Is anyone else checking the website every five minutes? I have an addiction lol,

    • Pharap

      I’m just waiting for my convos to officially die so I can go to sleep.

    • Golden_Lucario

      I check it every 2 hours, I need to see it so bad..

    • F5F5F5F5

    • Green

      Yep.

  • Aqualate

    Last post before my extended nap (so if I dont respond, you already have your answer) but how would a Poison/Fairy type work? What would it be? Its literally the only type combination I have a hard time to imagine.

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      I think it could be some guardian of nature that has been corrupted via pollution. Think celebi mixed with koffing.

    • Pharap

      A pixie.
      A mischevious imp of the forest that corrodes buildings and pollutes rivers.

    • LinksDaydream

      poison/fairy, dark/fairy and ghost/fairy go together like PB&J because in real stories of fairies they are evil little sh*ts, and can be very toxic in the things they do, think, “Changeling” they were said to be the cause of diseases, disabilities and disorders, they also have been said to suck the life out of their human “parents”, like parasites

    • Golden_Lucario

      Maybe a snake that lures its prey with the fairy type part (which is its tail), and then the poison part (the head) attacks the prey

  • Colin James

    I think it was TrueGreen7 or Jehtrotex who had the idea, but a water/poison Alolan Ekans and Arbok based on sea snakes would be super cool. Alolan Garchomp as a water dragon true shark would be cool too

    • FormicidaeNerd

      I love Rinnai-rai on tumblrs take on Alolan Ekans / Arbok
      Based off spotted garden eels and dragon eels
      (refresh)

      • ShinyXatu

        Those designs are absolutely gorgeous. Looks as if Game Freak designed them.

      • Green

        YES! YEEESSSS!!!! PLEEEEAAASSSEEE!!!!!!!!

  • Pharap

    I’m going to vanish because conversation is dying and I should sleep.

    • Ithsme

      ‘night. Corocoro will probably be here in the morning.

    • Ithsme

      Steel why? Maybe Dark Normal because human?

      • FormicidaeNerd

        I thought more along the lines of Rock / Fairy – Rock / Dark

      • Green

        The piercings? Idk. But Rose should be Rock/Fairy

      • DefensiveBastiodon

        Hardcore metal style..

    • Ben

      “How’d the battle go?”
      “Not very well…she just signed off and gave me some code saying ‘gg'”

  • Ithsme

    Question: When was the latest corocoro has leaked? I dont think I’ve ever had to wait past the 11th from what I remeber.

    • Shady

      maybe 13th.

    • ShinyXatu

      I’m pretty sure the issue with Mega Pidgeot leaked on the 14th. That’s from my memory though, I may be wrong.

      • Ithsme

        I hope we don’t have to wait that long.

      • SpectralSeraph

        Just looked, Pidgeot and Beedrill were on the 10th of October

        • ShinyXatu

          I’m thinking of another issue then, but there was one that leaked on the 14th.

          • SpectralSeraph

            I honestly doubt it will leak that late. At least I hope not

  • ShinyXatu

    I’d just like to preface this week with a little precautionary apology. If the NX reveal event does in fact get announced tomorrow (or another time this week), I’m probably going to post multiple nonsensical paragraphs and GIFs out of sheer excitement. This is the first week where every party agrees it could happen. The NX has been the first console that I’ve been involved with, rumor-wise, from the very beginning. Seeing it finally get announced will be a huge moment for me and many other devoted Nintendo fans. To tie this in with Pokemon, if CoroCoro leaks tomorrow/tonight as well, combined with that announcement…I don’t know if I could take it.

    • Ithsme

      I hope it gets revealed soon. They really are pushing it at this point.

      • ShinyXatu

        People think it will be this week for multiple reasons. First, Gameblog.fr (the outlet which leaked the Playstation Meeting) believed that this was the reveal week. Second, TGS 2016 happens starting on Wednesday, and many believe that they will want to reveal NX projects. Third, no recent major console has gone less than 6 months from reveal to release. Fourth, a certain well-known Neogaf poster has said that he was told that this was the week. So, there’s a brief lesson for anyone not in the know.

        • Ithsme

          Very informative, but it’s still all just speculation and rumors. xD

          • ShinyXatu

            Analysts who are somehow paid to predict this stuff also predict that it’s this week. I guess I could have just left it at that 😛

    • There’s way too many rumors! Now we gotta confirm them all, so all aboard the hype train!
      Choo choo!

      • Ithsme

        The rumor train. No one knows for sure if it exists. . .

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      i saw GIF and i approve

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE JUST LET THEM SHOW SOMETHING!!!! Sorry for the caps……….It’s just this whole charade has gone on long enough and I’m getting sick of waiting lol

  • Daniel

    Arbok.. without a design? I don’t think GF would let the chance slide..
    People have to fill our void for the real leaks somehow I guess.

  • The Last Kurusu

    Well I’m headed to bed but in tribute to Today being 9/11 I want to show my respect to my country here’s my favorite patrotic song!!

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ps7xmW-9LXQ

    Goodnight America!!!

    • EarthenWarrior

      • Exeledus

        this

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I really don’t like this song……and I’m an American….*sigh*……….

      • Pharap

        It’s ok, you’re allowed to like your country and NOT lord it over everyone.

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Well that’s good……I feel like that is something that many…if not most Americans do…..and it’s embarrassing…lol

          • Pharap

            Yeah, they can be really over the top. I mean it’s fair enough once in a while, but dressing up absolutely everything in stars and stripes is a bit over the top.

            On the other hand, I wish my country had more patriotic people. Some people are too terrified to make any large show of patriotism because they’re too worried that other countries will perceive them as racist.

      • Pharap

        At least it wasn’t Born in the USA, because that would be ironic.

  • Alexander0903

    Why do i feel like once i go to bed corocoro will finally leak in about an hour of me sleeping?

  • Exeledus

    ok so I lied. I went ahead and beat skyward sword before the wind waker. why? because it was eating away at me that I always started but never beat that game (and ive always 100% every single Zelda game ive ever played) but this time I beat it and 100% it. gotta say, I see where all the hate from this game comes from. I legit fell asleep numerous times during my play through. not all was bad though, I absolutely loved the ancient cistern and the boss fight in it, Koloktos, and I just wish the entire game was of that caliber. Oh, and Peatrice <3 alrighty, wind waker next, this time I promise.

    • Pharap

      My biggest gripe with it was that the map was tiny.

    • Armaggedon16

      I still don’t get the hate

      The story,the dungeons,and most of the.bosses were the best the series had

      • Exeledus

        …yeah no. every single dungeon except for the ancient cistern and every single boss except for koloktos was forgettable. nothing sticks out as much as, say, lakebead temple and goron mine from twilight princess, shadow temple from ocarina of time, snowhead temple of stone tower temple from majora’s mask, dark palace from a link between worlds, or earth temple from the wind waker. they recycled bosses way too often, you fight 2 of them 3 times for pete’s sake. the wonky motion controls worked like 95% of the time, which may look good, but any programmer worth his salt would be fired and ridiculed if his button inputs only work 95% of the time, which is why they give you 6 hearts at the beginning, to mask the fact that you will be getting hit due to the poor controls. there were way too many segments where the joystick SHOULD have been used instead of the motion controls (a lot of flying and swimming, where the joystick was not used at all would have been much less of a headache) the story was not good, it was a very bad attempt at explaining the master sword, but because they did this the game turned into a huge series of fetch quests. and girahim… I liked him, but god was he written terribly. heck there’s one time that you see him at the first time gate where he pretty much says “i shoulda got you last time, and I could get you this time, but i’ll get you next time!” for no reason! if he could have stopped link (which he very well could have) then why not? and don’t give me that he needed link to find the second gate, because he didn’t know link was going to do that. FI…. UGHHHH…… its ridiculous how much she holds your hand. she even explains things to you even after you tell her you don’t need an explanation. a good example is, after you open a chest with an important item, the game gives a brief text based tutotial on how to use it. then immediately after Fi will pop out and repeat what you just read in her annoying robot like way. she interrupts the flow of gameplay so much its ridiculous. explaining goddess chests to me after ive already opened 20 of them?!? really?!? it made me glad to see her sealed in the sword where no one can hear her talk. back to the motion controls, they made the game lack enemy variety becase every enemy is based on blocking your hits. and to increase the difficulty, those enemies just learn new ways to block yoiur attacks. even basic enemies like mobokins are such a chore that the easiest way to deal with them is to back up charging a skyward strike, hit them with it, then use the finishing move, which wouldn’t be necessary if they didn’t always know where you are going to hit them. I could keep going on and on about how disappoint this game was (dowsing, time shift stones and how that made no sense, hylia’s dumbass plan that made no sense and had like 6 plot holes in the span of a 3 minute sutscene…. F*cking Fi…. god she was annoying) but I think ive gone on long enough.

  • David Nixon

    okay wall of information,you might be a tough cookie to crack,but you left me with no choice I’d like to introduce to you,the Giga solar beam Cannon this is filled to the brim by the most best of Technology Power,it has a whole array of solar panels switch conduct solar power,but since this is the middle of the night,but I got a great special Pokemon for this special occasion,which will help me to give the ultimate surprise you’re about to get! >:)

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      What are you talking about?

      • David Nixon

        I’m talking about blowing that wall into smithereens!

        • Rockcrawdaunt

          What wall?

          • Pharap

            Wonderwall?

          • David Nixon

            the wall that’s keeping the info on Pokemon Sun and Moon hostage.

    • Exeledus

      oh david pokejungle wouldn’t be the same without you spouting random nonsense. I love it.

      • David Nixon

        Thanks ^v^ i think.

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    Well here’s hoping I wake up in 7 and a half hours to leaks. I wanna know what rockruff turns into so bad. It feels like each reveal is getting closer to confirming all these different rumors (like rockruff’s evo will confirm the one with the pikapek, fire pig, muk variant, etc and the Chinese one will get more credibility if there’s multiple forms right? Plus it could give us an idea as to what the secret is that it shares with the starters)!

  • Shady
  • JJ Knight

    I think these are fake, as the last CoroCoro stated that it’d reveal information on Rockruff’s “Secret Evolution”. While it is very possible that this leak is just one page of two or three of the CoroCoro, the Alolan Forms are a bit disappointing. I’d rather have Electabuzz have the Electric/Fighting-Typing, Magmar to have Fire/Poison, and Arbok to have something like Poison/Dark. That’s just my opinion, though. Electric/Fairy for Electabuzz would be interesting and Fire/Grass would be cool for Magmar, I’d prefer the types mentioned earlier.

    Side note, I really hope we get the starter evolutions this CoroCoro. It’d follow the trend of the last two generations for the starter evolutions to appear in September.

  • TigerMasku

    Damn it Coro Coro, get leaked already!!!

  • Haxford

    If this leak is real, the pics should be posted in 45 minutes, like he/she promised.
    I highly doubt it though.

  • Aqualate

    UB-02 looks exactly like Lusamine

    • Chaos

      Looks more like Alder to me.

  • Akiran Drake (Nightshade)

    I honestly don’t think this rumors is true. It just wouldn’t make sense, a fighting snake? I think its doing to be a Dragon type, it just seems to fit with the Cobra design. In Japan there a legend about young dragons, I forget what they are called, but they look rather like huge Cobras.

  • Artemis Julia

    Well this was super fake! Still Alolan Arbok is still possible so hopefully that will still happen.
