Dragon type on a starter? Not likely.

My favourite is actually the bird (panda comes second)
The bird looks like an actual Japanese robin. I hope its final evo will be fire/flying

Anyone seen the unconfirmed info on PokeBeach? I sounds really good:
I still ain't buying it, they wouldn't make a new battle style just for flying pokemon, the battles will always be how they always were, turn based in a battle stage, one type of mon wouldn't get their own style.

That would more likely be a minigame, anyway I don't believe those news either but I would not be disappointed with any of them.

I hope that the dual-typed moves aren't true. Why 2 types for 1 move?! The rest seems ok to me, although I still don't like the idea of Fairy Type.

"The professor's English name is Patrice."

That's also a really terrible name, so I hope all of this isn't true. :( Also, Fairy immune to dragon? If Mawile gets an evo it'll be OU or Ubers o_O

New type confirmed? Remember that Smash promo of the girl dressed in a Sylveon costume trying to break bricks? Well, Bulbagarden tweeted recently about the latest Pokémon Smash episode and here's what they said:

"Is a new type confirmed? Well...maybe. During the Eevee-Akiyama friends segment of Pokémon Smash earlier today, it was heavily implied that Sylveon is strong against Ice types, and weak against Poison types. If this is true, and not just the Pokémon Smash team horsing around, then this is an outright confirmation that Sylveon is a brand new type.

For those who haven't seen the segment, it had the team (cosplaying as Eeveelutions) trying to figure out Sylveon's type. First, Shoko (playing Sylveon) pulled out some Nunchucks....but then got shoved inside a drum by a big burly guy, implying Sylveon is not a Fighting type, and in fact is probably weak to them. Next, she broke a block of ice. Akiyama and the others suggested that she may be a Steel type as a result of these two results, and decided to test the idea. The method they came up with? Seeing if she resisted Poison by having her put her head in a box and expose her to some really bad smelling items. That...didn't work out so well for Shoko. Not clear if that was meant to imply Poison was super effective, or that it was just effective, but at least it was clear that Sylveon lacked the Poisin immunity of Steel.
(Yes, crazy stuff like this is typical of Smash)

One more thing to consider. If this is true, it contradicts the "Fairy-type" rumours which have been going around recently. While those did suggest a Poison weakness, they said nothing about Ice at all, and suggested that Sylveon was actually strong against Fighting.

So...new type looking incredibly likely. Your thoughts?"

I can't say I'm all in favor of a new type, but it would certainly add interesting things to the game. Even veterans would have to learn a thing or two. Unless this Pokemon is a Grass/Something else type, it will have to be a new type to have those weaknesses. Who knows, maybe they will change some old Pokemon as well, like they did with Gold and Silver. Most fans think a new type is unnecessary, but really, it would be ok.

Pokejungle contradicts Bulbapedia. According to Pokejungle, who uses PJ and ZephyrSonic+ ZS's girlfriend to translate, Sylveon wasn't really effected by Poison. They tested to see if she was immune to Poison as part of the Steel test. She wasn't immune but it was never said Poison weakened her Wow they changed it XD...hrm.

Well there's a huge load of information regarding X and Y for the next Pokemon Smash so hopefully at one point they could follow up on the Sylveon news and finally reveal it's typing. Either that or they could just re cover what we already discovered in this weeks CoroCoro edition.

I'm hoping for the slim chance they reveal Sylveon's type. I'd rather discuss a new type ─ if it's that ─ than continue discussing what Sylveon could be and just going around in circles. :|

I'm just amazed at how much information was shown in the leaking of CoroCoro for this month. They revealed 4 new Pokémon, Pokémon that you can ride, official artwork of the players and the new region named Kalos.

Hm... speaking of the new region, I doubt anyone would remember this old post here:
Quote originally posted by PokémonShinySilver:
Hm... earlier I was thinking that the region might actually be set in Paris. But then again... when I looked at it on Google Earth, it was completely inland. So now I kind of think that the new region would probably be based in France, but I'm thinking it'll take place somewhere on the west side of France.

So it kind of makes me think that the region will kind of look more like this:
Spoiler:


What do you think? Is this a good location for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y to be set in? :o
Looks like my speculation of the region being situated in the north-west coast of France became a reality, compare my old post to the CoroCoro scan:
Spoiler:


Looks close enough to me.

From what I've seen it looks like they're using all of france...that may mean it'll be a very large region in game, I hope so as BW Unova was just too small.

I can see all of France in the region's artwork. I bet there will be 2 major mountain ranges/caves because of the Pyrenees based of mountains in the south, and the mountains in the east probably resemble the French Alps.
And is it possible for legendaries to be based upon French mythologies and tales? The musjedeer trio would fit Karos more than Unova if you ask me...

It's fairly close. Your map shows only the more north-south Cotentin peninsula whereas the map or Karos shows pretty clearly the more east-west and larger peninsula or Brittany alongside some smaller looking peninsula that looks like the one in your map.

After looking at the eiffel tower in the trailer
I think that it can be this generation's Celadon or Lilicove Big market.
What do you think?

Doubt it, the real life Eiffel tower isn't a dept store so this won't be either, if anything my guess is it'll be both a plot location, and a place to show off the new graphics and the 3D, by giving you a look at the region from the top, and using the 3DS to show off the depth, how far the region reaches.

Every series has a multi-floor department store. There is nothing saying this can't be one.

It could be similar to the battle cafe but incoperate some sort of Battle Tower feature where you progress through the floors defeating trainers.

Well, if you look at the "Eiffel Tower" from the screenshot, it seems like there are actually glass windows, so maybe there is something in there after all?
Maybe not a dept. store, but i'm guessin you'll be able to enter it at some point

I like the idea of the battle facility, it could a battle tower where you fight a trainer in each floor, trying to reach the top.

A battle facility would be pretty nice, although a dept. store wouldn't be bad either

It could also be nothing. I mean there are a lot of large buildings in Castellia that you can not enter. It can be a land mark and nothing else.
