Important: The leaker has come out as fake. This can still mean that some of this information may be true coincidentally, though.
As with all of our rumour posts, we suggest that you treat this information as pure speculation from an individual. These are used to spark discussion and entertain only, do not consider them fact.
This week has been pretty crazy. We’ve had a lot of information fed to us, topped off with the brand new X&Y gameplay and anime clips on Sunday. Midweek however, the comments section on one of our features exploded. We’ve seen it before, someone claiming to be a leaker, with access to the new games, but having no means of backing up their claims. This time no one seemed to care, and begun asking questions regarding details of Pokémon X & Y. Below is a compilation of all this ‘information’ for easy reading. We should also make note than some information was posted using a duplicate account, posing as the individual who posted this information, as such that information has been removed. Remember that this should not be considered true, if anything comes of them we will provide updates! Be warned this post may contain possible plot spoilers!

It’s a good read, but how much of this do you believe, if any? What parts of it would you like to see in the final games? Get talking. Remember, if you would like to submit to us, or have further details on anything in this post please use our contact form.
NOTE: We hopefully have some interesting articles planned for our readers over the next week, so be sure to keep an eye out. For now though, hopefully everyone has watched the XY gameplay footage and anime clip (if you haven’t, find it here). In the anime clip, on the run way it seems we could have a sneak-peek at a new Pokémon. From what very little we can see it looks canine-like and is white. Could it be a Swirlix evolution? We’ll see…
