I never considered Mewtwo as a possible Ghost. It doesn't have the invisible body like others (Gastly, Haunter, etc.). I doubt it could even be properly portrayed that way.

Why would Mewtwo be part Ghost though? To me that wouldn't make a lot of sense. It's not dead, it's not based off of anything dead or spiritual, so why?

^ This.

It shouldn't really gain any typing whatsoever. I believe that the only legendary to change types (or gain additional ones) when it was granted a different form was Shaymin, and that made sense because Shaymin could fly in it's Sky form, while land form, it couldn't.

Well spotted, it becomes Fighting type.

The only way I see it gaining Ghost is if this new forme is suppose to represent a more spiritual Mewtwo of sorts...

Honestly I think it's just very unlikely at this point for Mewtwo to gain another type whatsover, especially since it doesn't (as already said) share any characteristics of a typical Ghost Pokemon. @_@

All I'm seeing out of this form is a possible stat switch. Kind of like the Therian forms in the Genie trio, if you will.

I somehow believe it will be a "???" type just because on the website they showed the starters had pure types and Sylveon had a "???" box under it which imo means it's the type.......... and yet speculating didn't help me out one bit

The problem with that is that well...what are the strengths and weaknesses of "???" type, and what's the basis behind it? We can make logical assumptions about Dragons, and Poison-types, and Electric and what have you, but what's the basis behind this new-type? @_@; I'm afraid it'll provide a lot more questions than answers, really.

I'm definitely gonna say Sylveon isn't ??? typing. I'm pretty sure they just want to keep the hype up by holding out on us this long.

That's a bit Farfetch'd (pun fully intended). It clearly means "You have no idea and we're not telling you yet".

Even though the hype can only continue for so long. :\ I really wonder how long it's going to take before GF is kind of going to take the hint that people are really not caring anymore about Sylveon's type like they used to. Instead, it's just "show us the type already, ugh >.>".

I definitely agree. They're still getting the audience that's just hopping onto the X/Y hype, but the majority of people are just kind of sick of trying to speculate the typing. Honestly I hope it gets revealed sometime soon, not because they should, but just because I'm sick of hearing everyone argue over the typing =P

Speaking of things getting revealed soon, is it two weeks away until the next CoroCoro reveal comes out? If so, then I wonder what's going to be revealed? I kind of want them to drift away from the movie a bit and actually focus on the content that's going to be included in the games. .___. Though seeing as the movie is coming out soon (?), I find that to be somewhat doubtful.

But fingers crossed, yeah?

But seriously, it HAS to be Bug/Dragon/Ghost/Flying/Normal/FAIRY type because *insert random spittle here*.

Yeah, I'm with you. It's getting repetitive now. Just tell us already.

All I care about at this moment is the starters and their possible final evos. That's really the only thing that's grabbing my attention, along with the region as well as the region name. As long as we have one of those three vital pieces of information, I'm good. xD

I think we may be getting the art of the protagonists in May or June along with the Rival and the region as those three things usually come out together and it's usually around this time.

I'll stick with Xavier and Yvonne, or perhaps even Leo and Lea as possibilities.

Not going to lie here, the protagonists (though as amazing as the female protag is), I feel, aren't really huge speculation/discussion material, y'know? I'd rather have something about the starters, even their second evos (doesn't even have to be their third yet, but it would make sense to reveal both at the same time). And heck, the region map would be huge speculation material, especially since that could lead to a huge hint as to possible towns/cities and the like~!

Honestly there isn't much point speculating their names either. I mean, majority of people name the characters whatever they want anyways, so the names don't really have any large impact. Minor thing to speculate on I suppose. I agree on wanting to see the starters' evolutions though =P

I've already speculated on Sylveon, the Starters, the legendaries, and Mewthree. I need something else. Protagonist names fits the bill.

Eh. I agree with Jake here. Probably not much speculation to be done as far as the protagonists' name goes.

...Now I'm just REALLY hoping for the Region Map to be revealed soon. D:

This also fits the bill. However, I can live a couple more months without this. Just give me a name.

I think the Region map and name come hand in hand and due to the fact that we haven't really seen many areas I think it will be a short while before we see it in full.

I would say that a minimum of three Routes are confirmed.

Not like that's really Earth-shattering...
