Looks like a video clip capture is more reliable than an official screenshot, that definitely is light this time

I consider it equally reliable, it's just the proof that not everything we see in those screenshot is gonna be exactly the same in the game. Everything could be different in the final product.

Screen shot is both newer and on a different street from what I can see. I know the video was beta material too so guess we'll have to wait for another update since its possible both are highly possible to be outdated.

The tower in the video is also a different color than the screen shot so its either or unless we can find another screen shot of the tower that is more up to date.

Looking at the video shot and screenshot, the video shot is actually a lot higher quality, more polygons, actually has a person in it and better shadows, if anything the screenshot is even more beta than the video shot

There has been no confirmation that this is based off of the Eiffel tower. We assume it is because of pikachu's thing, but there hasn't been any official word on anything. Look at the ditto incident. All these big elaborate theories came up about Ditto being Failed Mew clones. Gamefreak does an interview and were like "what!? No its just based off a smiley face." Our assumptions are all that we have.

The video also contained the Beta work. The screenshot is newer meaning its closer to final product but we'll have to see another updated picture when they release one.

Its also incredibly stupid to add real world icons to games that aren't part of the real world. I don't see the point in that being a building when its in proper placement for a monument. Makes perfect sense for it to be a statue for iconic reference rather than an unimportant building.

Now considering that the model seen in the screenshot may have been not the definitive one, I think that we can't really exclude the possibility of the tower beeing an accessible building.

Talking about what could be inside, considering how pikachu's thunder reach all the world from the top of the tower, and the focus on the simultaneus worldwide release I think that could be an antenna, so at the base there could be the GTS.
GTS station would be cool. Placement of the thing would be pretty well planned. Would make it into a radio station. Kinda like that Japanese radio tower. Forgot its name.

They could make it a fairly empty building with no major impact either. History wise we get a lot of good building locations that are empty or has an npc give you a pokeball. If there isn't a major story point for it, its a wasted moment whether its a statue or a building.

There is no meant to represent there. Gamefreak has said nothing on this. We're making assumptions. These assumptions have also given us all the now proven false fairy rumors. It looks like a lot of different radio towers. The most up to date image shown doesn't have the white light based on what was shown.

Video is older and full of beta unfinished work.

Video is older than the screenshot though. Gunna have to see if the add more to it. Not impossible for a door to appear and disappear through beta work. Everything isn't finished so next update should come up. Though like I said before it also looks like its two different areas. There could have a door on a different side. We just have to wait for more updates.

I believe the tower is like the fountain in Castelia with the dancers in BW, where the different routes connect. Also it could have a opening in a different side, if so than I'm guessing the camera may work like in Castelia with the streets.
wonder why they split the dex up into three areas and not more.

They will not add a figure and give it a real world name. That would suggest that this is all in our world. They wouldn't do that. However, they can put a tower with a resemblence to the real world figure. Victini's home, Liberty Garden, has been referred to as the Unova Statue of Liberty (Liberty Island).

Here, people have associated the Eiffel Tower with the tower because of France. Is it the Eiffel Tower? No. Is it meant to be the Pokémon equivalent? I say yes. Will it be explorable? I'm 90% certain that yes, it will be. I just don't know WHAT it will be. Even if it's nothing more than a gate, it means it's accessible (though that's a huge building for a gate).

If there is an open doorframe with white light coming out, chances are it's used for something. Of course, in the final product, it could be sealed. However, right now, as we are looking at it, there appears a possibility that it will be open. And I think more people here hope it's an open building.

I like the new reveal, the panda is my favorite. Although why are we debating the size of the elifle tower? Also now we can walk diagonally and the customization is cool to.

We're not. It's 324m tall, has three floors, and nine lifts/elevators in it. This is not being debated.

What is being debated is the size of the one in the game. And that we can debate, quite simply, because we can.

Helioptile sounds odd. Is that pronounced "He-lee-ohp-tile"?

Fletchling is ok I guess, it sounds a bit uninspired though. Gogoat is nice although it sounds like you're stuttering when you mention it. Panchum seems pretty obvious now that I look at it. "Punch em" or "Panda + Chum"

I really like all of the names but Fletchling, which sounds so weird.
The fact that Gogoat keeps his name is great, and Panchum is such a cute one :D

Hopefully if Fletching is the real name and assuming it can evolve, it will gain a better name for it's evolution.

I love the being able to ride on Gogoat - hopefully it will be transferable to Rapidash.. And as someone mentioned in the Youtube comments with the detail we can see they might have to draw each individual surfing. or else they'll give us a boat.. I don't like the thought of that :/

Since this is pretty big, i thought it would be best to create a specific thread for it. The English trailer gave the names of four new Pokemons and they're the same as The guy gave Pokebeach. This probably means that following are also Confirmed :

Fairy will be a new type. It is weak to Poison and Steel, immune to Dragon, super effective against Dragon, Dark, and Fighting, and Fire and Psychic-type Pokemon take half damage from it.

Sylveon is Fairy-type. Some older Pokemon will be reclassified to Fairy, such as Mawile (Steel/Fairy).

Mewtwo has two new formes, not just one. Both are activated via items.

The professor's English name is Patrice.

The Starter final evolutions are Fire/Psychic, Grass/Fighting, and Water/Dark.

The first Gym is Bug, the second is Fairy, and the fourth is Fighting.

A few attacks will be dual-typed.

There will be a new type of battling style that Flying-type Pokemon and Pokemon with Levitate can participate in.

You will be able to see a Pokemon's EVs at a certain in-game facility. You will be able to boost the EVs through mini-games. It will take about two hours to get one stat to max EVs.


Massive Changes !

The Guy revealed the English names of the four Pokemons Yesterday. They were confirmed today.
These are other rumours he posted.

This is a rather large leap. For starters, I have no idea which trailer you're talking about, but of course that doesn't mean anything. Just because one thing was true doesn't automatically confirm all these others. That's just not how it works. These will be proven true when they are actually shown. Plus, attacks being dual-typed is just ridiculous. I can't really ever see that happening.

EDIT: If this is the trailer you mean, it didn't release any names whatsoever, so I have no idea what you're getting at...

I'm really impressed about how good the graphics look. From the first trailer revealed to this it definitely looks like the quality got a jump. I'm very pleased with it! Plus, riding Gogoat looks cool (although I hope that just a minigame or something, since I don't want to be forced to have a Pokémon like that to act as a new Bike).
