  1. I’m not sure whether there will be any real news on this episode of Smash due to them not saying anything in the past couple of weeks. I do however think that there could be a preview of something for next weeks episode that could be something that completely brand new to us.

  2. It just started and again no mention to 6th gen..I mean this is a great news, they would have said something in the preview at least..

    1. They actually did mention XY in the introduction. Also showed some footage from the reveal trailer. That in combination with Masuda appearing means we could get something.

  3. Guys… Did you see at the end of Smash they should an eevee evo behind the door but it was covered by a circle and the number 8! an 8TH EVOLUTION!!!

    1. I hate to be *that* guy, but do you have a screen cap of this? I’m not doubting you, but the video got taken down before I could see for myself…

  4. I think there going to milk X&Y untill october and barely reveal anything. I doubt masadu will reveal anything intersting ( probably a game mechanic or a tid bit on the story line). If anything “groundbreaking” was going to be revealed. It would had been revealed in corocoro. Usually we get the scans and info from them and than pokesmash gives us the details and a battle sequence.

  5. I hate it when they do this… -_- They’re all like “OMG X & Y NEWS ARE YOU ALL READY? WE GOT JUNICHI AND EVERYTHING LIKE IT’S GONNA HAPPEN…next week.”

  6. I saw this posted on 4chan just now, seems interesting…

    “Due to the “world wide” release of Pokemon X/Y, pre-release information that at this time would usually be reserved for the Japanese branch of the Pokemon Company is now present among the localization departments of the other regions as well (such as NOA, where I am situated), and I have actually seen the full roster of new Pokemon as have quite a few people worldwide due to the difficulty regarding keeping everything under wraps. Thus, I can share a bit of preliminary information about new Pokemon appearing in X/Y.

    * More than 100 new Pokemon.

    * There are indeed new evolutions and pre-evolutions, most of them focused on Gen V Pokemon. However, a few older Pokemon, including Gen I classics, are getting surprising new developments.

    * No new types, but there are “Cross-bred” Pokemon introduced. Certain father/mother breeding pairs will result in a visually distinct child, who will be the mother’s species, but will, for example, have a pattern reminiscent of its father or a slightly altered color scheme. This is basically the new Gender Difference and is simply an aesthetic bonus, nothing extreme and only certain pairings result in this…the Pokemon is still considered the species of its mother, it’s not a new species. One example I can give is that it is possible to get certain Pokemon sporting Pikachu’s red cheeks.

    * The Starters become Grass/Steel, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Electric. They’re inspired by various European-centric archetypes…Chespin becomes a knight with chestnut armor, Fennekin a wizard with a majestic fur cloak, and Froakie a Nordic Viking with a thunder-cloud mullet/beard combo.

    * Xerneas is Ice/Steel, and Yveltal is Fire/Dark. They have a unique ability where they can shift types with each other, Xerneas becoming red and Fire/Steel, and Yveltal becoming blue and Ice/Dark. Supposedly, Game Freak chose the typings in part due to members of the team being fans of R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, among other reasons.

    * Normal: Kendama-based Pokemon. Its main body rides atop a giant ball.
    * Grass: A black-bear whose body is made of berries.
    * Fire: Pintata Bull with horns that are torches.
    * Water: Sea-bird. Looks like a socialite due to a feather that looks like an ascot.
    * Electric: A poodle whose fluffy-parts are statically-charged fur.
    * Bug: Millipede, besides the head its long body is made of bubbles
    * Flying: A peacock with a tail that’s a harp.
    * Steel: A female-like Pokemon whose long hair is made of long, steel cables.
    * Rock: A rock-based snail, its got a bell for a shell, and its body looks like a cathedral.
    * Ground: An elephant whose body is covered in hardened mud-armor, more realistic looking than Donphan.
    * Psychic: An “Arabian” Pokemon wrapped in a brightly-colored carpet clothing.
    * Dark: Raccoon. Its tail serves as a burglar sack, and it’s got a stylish black mask.
    * Poison: Little purple lizard, it swings its (very large) broken tail around like a huge club.
    * Fighting: A very weird Pokemon who resembles a giant, living sneaker. Cooler looking than it sounds.
    * Ice: A Snowman with coal on its head looking like the incense marks Shaolin Monks have.
    * Ghost: A kasa-obake (umbrella ghost) that’s brightly colored and “fancy” looking.
    * Dragon: A Kirin that looks like a dragonic-unicorn.”

    What do you think? PokeJungle always posts cool rumors so I thought I’d share.
