Japanese publication CoroCoro has been leaked onto the web and in it, several new details about Pokemon X & Y have surfaced. The game will be available in October, but of these details are new. Here they are:

  • Mawile is also re-typed Steel/Fairy (which was part of WPM’s rumors)
  • Gogoat’s Pre-Evolution is Meekuru.
  • Electric/Fairy called Dedenne. Antennae Pokemon. Knows Pick-Up or Cheek Pouches.
  • Normal Rabbit named Horubii. Digging Pokemon. Knows Pick-Up or Cheek Pouches.
  • New Waifu Material, Koruni. Blonde chick with Rollerblades and skull helmet, Gym Leader who holds the key to Mega Evolutions.

    My God…
    It’s Black2/White2 all over again…

    Edit: Still getting this game though! ^o^

      I’m actually excited about the mega Pokemon. I think it’ll be a nice addition to the series.

      • Guest

        Only for Smogon to ban them.

      • Silent

        Only for Smogon to ban them.

        • greengecko007

          Who cares about Smogon and their rules? Smogon is home to some of the most arrogant and hypocritical people in the Pokemon fandom.

          Smogon banned Bidoof of all Pokemon from all tiers including Uber, just because of the ability moody…

          • Silent

            Bidoof Uber? That may be the stupidiest pokemon related thing I’ve ever heard besides Mewthree.

          • greengecko007

            HA! Yeah, their reasoning is because of the ability moody. It randomly drops one stat by one stage and raises another by two stages each turn. The say that Bidoof can abuse Protect and Substitute and gain evasion bonuses (randomly, it can also lose evasion from Moody) and it becomes annoying to kill. If even that is true, all it would take is one attack from any Uber Pokemon to OHKO Bidoof. Even with random stat boosts and drops, Bidoof has pitiful stats.

    • Michael Jurado

      you make it sound like a bad thing? why??

      • Marcus Navarro

        In Black/White(which is what I meant to say), Pokemon have a hidden ability unlocked in the Dream World, giving either useless Pokemon something to redeem themselves(Volbeat getting Prankster) or making already overpowered Pokemon more overpowered(Skarmory getting Weak Armor).

        Now I’m hearing that Blazekin(who’s aready overpowered as hell) is getting goddamn SPEED BOOST?! What tomfoolery is this?! Blazekin’s already hard-to-stop, but with 2 Speed Boosts, it’s nigh unstoppable. Just ask the guy who ran a sun team with Ninjask leading off(i.e.: this guy —> (-_-’))

        Mawile getting Huge Power? Lucario getting Adaptability? Great. Now Mawile’s Bullet Punch and Lucario’s Aura Sphere are shitting on Scizor’s Bullet Punch, who is tied with Huge Power Azumaril’s Aqua Jet for one of the most powerful priority attacks for non-legendaries. Fanfuckingtastic.
        Lemme mention the upcoming Mega Absol, who’s getting MAGIC BOUNCE! Magic Bounce repel’s any non-attack debuff like Toxic, Spikes, etc. Jesus Christ in a hand basket!
        When Game Freak said that these are Mega Pokemon, they sure as hell weren’t kidding! I can only pray that not everyone and their granny’s gonna be running a sun team with Mega Blazekin, or Game Freak bans Mega Pokemon from use in online play, tourneys, or both.

        • Akatosh

          Blaziken HAD speed boost in b/w.

        • Silent

          Yes,Yes! Keep complaining.

          It pleases me

        • greengecko007

          Competitive play has been broken since Black and White came out. As far as competitive play goes, the new Pokemon and their forms are bent on stamping out any sort of strategy. Stall teams haven’t been viable in upper tiers for years, as Game Freak keeps on making new Pokemon faster and stronger, while making only 1 or 2 decently defensive Pokemon with each generation.

          But the core game itself is still fun to play. I personally am getting Pokemon Y version, but I will likely never delve into competitive play this generation.

          • Marcus Navarro

            I will be getting either one myself. It’s just that I’ve played competitively for so long. And yeah, B/W killed it for me. I guess X/Y will bury the coffin.

            I still wanna play online, and I will, but I don’t want to go up against Mega Blazekin or Mega Kangaskhan all the damn time. This might actually force me to go through Smogon to get in a decent game, and the Smogon community’s the Call of Duty of RPGs. It’s not that I find the core game boring(since there’s like a million things to do in-game), but I don’t want my only place to actually apply strategy and play to my party’s strengths to be the Battle Tower/Frontier/Colosseum/Contest/fuck-all Circus Town.

            And upper-tier stall teams are useable, just not viable. It just seems as if SubSeed and recovery teams are the be-all end-all of high-powered stall teams.

            This may sound elitist, but I hate seeing noobs win because their team’s stacked and has nothing but attack moves. It just pisses me off.

          • greengecko007

            “This may sound elitist, but I hate seeing noobs win because their team’s stacked and has nothing but attack moves. It just pisses me off.”

            I feel the same way, well sort of… I definitely get what you’re saying though.

            I think it’s hilarious how Smogon has taunt listed as a move for so many pokemon sets, when there are so little sets that are anything but all out attackers. The only non attack moves I see on the majority of Smogon’s cookie cutter sets are stealth rock, spikes, toxic spikes, and taunt…

        • Kriffix

          You know Mega Evolving is going to be difficult to set up right? It doesn’t just happen automatically. You have to work for those OP things you mentioned.

  • DragonSilths

    I dont know what Waifu is…But some of this is great. AMPHAROS!!! Also LUCARIO!!! Even Absol. But some of this seems….questionable.

  • Kriffix

    Ashly, why not put some pics up?
    You’re welcome to use anything from us at PokéJungle. We had a lot of exclusive info when it initially leaked directly from the leaker (like Mega Ampharos being Electric/Dragon despite it being cut off from the scan), as well as the only source who grasped the concept of Mega Stones and Blazikenite being one of them. For some bizarre reason other sites translated it as “Blaziken Knight”, but after some convincing we won over good old Serebii on the matter. Official sources later confirmed our extra info.

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      Hey thanks!

  • FlyingBoat

    yea im sooooooo excited for this. and about how i’ll maybe get to have torchic as a starter again

    • greengecko007

      That’s what it looks like. It’s kind of weird they would do an event Pokemon right when X and Y come out. I’m sure a lot of people will use the Torchic in their playthrough.

      • Tecpedz94

        Imagine, just imagine that we get to travel to the hoenn region after x and y lol. Ahh i can only dream they would integrate them together. We will hopefully see a remake later on :p

  • Fred7010

    Open minds, guys- i’m more pleased that they’re shaking up the series a bit with this kind of thing than if they were to just push out the same games every generation. Hopefully they won’t overdo it though- DPP overdid the legendaries in my opinion, hopefully XY won’t overdo Mega forms.

    • Marcus Navarro

      Erm…what? No, they didn’t. Palkia, Dialga, Regigigas, Shaymin, then 2 water legendaries and the 3 psychic legendaries(the names escape me) are NOT overpowered. Whatsoever.

      As for your wish for them to not overdo Mega Pokemon, I’m sorry to disappoint you. Mega Blazekin. ‘Nuff said.

  • Sdudyoy

    I’ll be honest Mega Pokemon is a really stupid idea IMO I really wanted the game before but now I’m not sure.

    • greengecko007

      I don’t care much for the designs, but it’s not like you have to use these new forms. I don’t see how this is a deal breaker, but to each their own.

      • Sdudyoy

        Yeah, It’s just that I can’t stand the new forums in Black and White 2, I guess I’ll stick with the other Pokemon games, I hope you will enjoy X and Y.

    • Michael Jurado

      making my already strong pokemon even stronger yeah real stupid idea o.O I honestly would love to see what you could come u with

      • Sdudyoy

        It’s my opinion I hate forms in Pokemon and this is adding forms to non legendary Pokemon, I didn’t get Black and White 2 because of forms, I’m sticking to the other Pokemon games and It doesn’t make a difference to anybody.

        • Marcus Navarro

          Here’s what’s wrong with that statement:
          1) Those forms in B/W are ONLY legendary Pokemon, and literally 2 Pokemon had alternate forms in B/W (Thundurus—> Thundurus-T, Kyruem—>Kyruem binded with either Reshiram or Zekrom), so idk why you’re complaining.
          2) Deoxys has 4 different forms, Giratina has 2 forms, and Shaymin has Sky Forme, so you stick to the other games that already have alternate forms of Pokemon. (-_-’)
          Edit: Forgot to mention Arceus, the most powerful Pokemon of all time, has alternate typing and Genesect…well…being Genesect.

          • Sdudyoy

            But Deyoxes and Shaymin where event Pokemon so I could ignore them plus I didn’t get platinum due to Girintina having a second form and like I said I didn’t get Black and White 2 because they added all those forms.

          • Marcus Navarro

            Because of a SINGLE Pokemon having an alternate form, you didn’t get it…wow…
            I can’t see the thought process behind that, but it’s whatever generates your mass effect field.

            Edit: What about Rotom in DPP? It has 7 forms…

          • Sdudyoy

            It’s all a matter of opinion and mine is different than yours, and I never got a Rotom just assumed they were event Pokemon, anyway my opinion isn’t changing so I’m done replying to this.

          • Tecpedz94

            Lol your the only one thats constantly complaining here….

    • Silent

      Dont like them, Dont use them. It’s just that easy.

  • greengecko007

    This isn’t really a leak, it’s information that Game Freak let’s us know about and is authorized to be published in the magazine CoroCoro.

  • Michael Jurado

    Oh I hope we can get a Mega Blastoise

  • 00EpicGamer00

    I like this, I like this allot. I hope chairzard gets a mega form ;)

  • Akatosh

    Does anyone know if mega evolution is permanent? Or is the mega stone going to be like the griseous orb? Really excited to see what new metagames come from this! ^^

    • Marcus Navarro

      You’re the only one that’s excited…
      It’s probably permanent. Can’t say for sure though. It should act like any other stone and force evolution and go away, but, again, it’s only speculation.

    • Tecpedz94

      No its not permanent. When you make a pokemon that can have a mega form hold a mega stone it will transform during battle and once the battle is over it will either go back to its regular form after battle and go back to its mega form when a battle commences or you have to stop making him hold the stone which there is a different stone for each pokemon for example the mega stone for lucario is the lucarionite.

  • VVVVVV

    Okay so i am going to get 3ds or 3ds XL soon and i was wondering does the original Ds games look blurry on XL? I found this video on youtube and i am not sure if it’s fake or real ???! i know my friend has a Ds lite and i also know that Nds has big library of good games. So i wanted to know can you do this really on 3ds or 3ds xl because that would be great :) http://youtu.be/E-QIkM4PLQ4

    • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

      I can confirm that this does work indeed exactly as this guy says, I just tried it myself on my 3DS XL. Hope that helps you on your decision. In fact you can allready press Select and Start then hold them right away as soon as you launch your game when the game screen itself appears it will have the minimized upper and lower screen.

      • VVVVVV

        thanks Sylux might just get 3ds XL now and get some good ds games :)

  • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

    This won’t be that game changing you can only have one mega poke in your party at a time.
