Flying / Fire for an early bird would be neat. There have always been a lack of fire pokemon within each game except in Hoenn (there were quite a few thanks to the volcano landscape). However I wouldn't go and say Fletchling's evolutions are going to Flying- / Fire-type just based on the fact that it can learn Flame Charge. After all, Blitzle and Zebstrika both learn it. It's color scheme certainly lends it to becoming that type though, which I look forward to. :]
Definitely. I honestly hope for it to become a fire-type version of Staraptor, really. Sure, it might have a glaring/disturbing SR weakness, but assuming (and I'm personally hoping) that there's more spinners in this game, that the whole SR weakness factor would be rectified.

A nice, badass, up-and-physical fire bird. I'd catch that.
It might make things awkward if one were to pick Fennekin, but what the heck, let's just make a full fire team.

If Sound and Light are the new types I can thing of two perfect version exclusives...

With Xerneas being part Light and Yveltal being part Sound, Volbeat could be a X exclusive as a Bug/Sound type and Illumise could be a Y exclusive as a Bug/Light type.
Good Spotting! If Sound and Light are introduced and Volbeat and Illumise get retyped I can totally see that happening.

...thing is, since Volbeat can breed to get Illumise and Illumise can breed to get Volbeat, they will have to be the same general type. I can't see them getting two different typings.

I really can't believe that people think that there will be a sound type, haha. That's one of the more ridiculous things I've heard about this new generation.

I really don't see how a sound type would fit in, I can understand why Light would be suitable but I just don't see Sound being a likely type, especially if we're already getting this alleged Fairy/Light type.

That makes it better... If it was just a gender different between them they could have just made it Volmise Male and Volmise Female... Then the version exclusive isn't too bad as you can breed with a ditto to get the other game's exclusive...

The credibility for Sound and Light type makes sense... We will have to wait and see... That's why we are in a speculation thread...

I didn't know where to post this so I'm posting it everywhere...
Spoiler:


"Someone on /vp/ pointed this out. Kalos may be directly north of Unova in the Pokemon world. This could all be a coincidence, but note how the rivers in north Unova and south Kalos more or less match up. And the mountainous area near the Pokemon League in Unova matches up to the mountainous southern Kalos. Since Gen 5 was a reboot, could Gen 6 allow us to visit Unova? Again this could all be a coincidence, especially due to route numbers having been reset, but it's at the very least interesting speculation."

Visiting Unova, again? No thanks.

I'd definitely say that's just a coincidence, this is a new Generation and I doubt we will be visiting Unova any time soon. Besides Kalos is based upon France whereas Unova is based on Manhattan, two regions on completely different continents...

Umm... This is Pokemon... Not the real world... You revisit Kanto in Gold/Silver... Maybe with this generation they are going by their G/S/C changes, which would give more credit to the possible new type(s).

I don't think that we'll be visiting other regions in X and Y and quite frankly if we were I doubt they'd use Unova which we already have just had four games for. On that not though if this did happen it could also be to the west (Anvil town in the west of Unova and railway in the East of Kalos). I still think it is just a coincidence though.

But the regions Kanto and Johto were also connected irl, and both were from Japane, so connecting Unova and Kalos would make little sense since they're based on two different continents.

They would have to re-develop the Unova Region again but in 3D, Kanto and Johto are borderline to each other as stated above and I think there's just so many reasons against it being a possibility. Not to mention that the Routes have been reset starting at Route 1 again, so that wouldn't fit either.

I still don't get why they start over the Route numbers again. (No really, tell me). Just continue from Unova's last route number (so Route 24-....) or just begin with 301-....

OOh, and Unova is adjacent to Kalos is unlikely, it would be a cool thing to see, though.

Honestly, I prefer it if it were to start at Route 1. It gives off that "fresh journey" kind of feeling, that you're starting off completely clean, and thats to be expected when you're in a new generation, in a new region, going through a completely new experience. I'd rather not them continue from where it was left off before, it would seem like it would be connected to Unova somehow when it isn't (or at least, I'm highly doubtful that it is).

Hopefully Kalos will be so large that we'll have no need for another region. :P

I agree. By the looks of things it looks like Kalos is a pretty spacious Region with many places to explore.

From the looks of the screenshots it already appears that the Route numbers are starting over again. If that were to happen, confusing the Routes of Unova and Kalos would be pretty easy. Plus, I doubt that they want to redevelop a region that they've already made four games for AGAIN just to revisit it. The graphics were barely changed between RBY and GSC (outside of color), so it was pretty easy to just redo the maps. Now that we have an entirely different game engine it'd take much more effort. We've already been there twice, do we need it a third time?

I'm going to go on record as saying Unova and Kalos are NOT connected. There are just too many reasons why they wouldn't be.

I for one want to use that handy dandy train that runs through the mountain. Whether or not it leads to a new region or just a new area to this one.

I hope so too! In my mind, bigger is usually always better in terms of space. I'm definitely up for lots of exploring in this region; it means that we won't really bore of it so easily (at least, hopefully not, depending on what's out there to explore) and that we'll just have lots more to do, period.

Just from the looks of the map it really does look like we have a much larger region that usual. Hopefully we'll have enough content in one region to not justify having to travel to another one. It'd honestly just be much preferred in my eyes.

BTW I wasn't claiming it was... I was just bringing up general speculations from other sources... I thought it was a cool coincidence...

Something of note, however; there is a lot of land area in Unova we don't actually get to explore. There will be areas here that are equally inaccessible. It'll somehow make things somewhat linear again.

Hoenn also had quite an inaccessible area, however it wasn't as liner as Unova, hopefully it's routes will be more like Hoenn's than Unova's in terms of linearity.

Allegedly some "new screenshots" have come to light, only five but I think they're just higher quality images of what we've already seen. There could be one or two new ones but nothing too interesting.

Spoiler:



As I've previously stated, it looks like you can find plenty of Pokemon (At least 77) in Central Kalos.
