I see Vanillite and it's evolutions simply spinning around, as if skating on the tip of their cone.
Also I see him having a Hitmontop.

My Team: Chespin, Helioptile, Clauncher.

Helioptile looks A LOT like Mawile in the best way. I love both of them.

It's still to early for me to decide on a team, proably will build it as I go.
17 days and 3 months until they come out, wonder how many more new Pokemon we'll get during this interval. I'm hoping to see some more evolutions of old Pokémon, hopefully non gen 1 Pokémon.

But Surge never made an appearance before the PWT. He didn't appear at all through the first set of games despite him being American and Unova supposedly being in/based off of America. This is the same issue that Fantina who actually doesn't have a set location as she has an English accent in the Jap games and French in English games. It would have made way more sense to have LT. Surge in Unova than it does for Fantina to randomly appear in Kalos.

It wouldn't be completely random though.

Even if Fantina is english in the Japanese version. She is french in the English and German versions of the game. (I read a post from somebody a while back saying that she was french in the german versions too)

I wouldn't call that random, there's definitely something connecting her to France/Kalos. It might not be the strongest of connections but it's still there. They could retcon her to originate from Kalos. I mean from what we know of Kalos so far with it's beauty and fashion.....would you really be surprised if a character like Fantina showed up?

I think this discussion is a little pointless though, she won't appear in the game in any meaningful capacity. At best she'll make an appearance like Jasmine did and at worst she'll get a comment like Lt. Surge got in the PWT saying she's from Kalos. I don't think it's something Game Freak would be racking their brains over for very long. She's not going to have a sub plot dedicated to her.

I'll like to see Wallace and Juan appear too as Kalos is about beauty and they enjoy beauty as much if not more than Fantina. Also Juan looks spanish (and his name, though he could also be American Hispanic as in Mexico, Venezuela, etc.), and Spain is south of France irl so it'll make sense for him to appear. Also Wallace appeared too little imo for a Champion, even less so than Steven in RS and Iris in B2W2, having only appeared during the Sootopolis crisis...and in the league...so I feel he needs more screen time in the series overall. Maybe have him take the "place" of Cynthia in these games.

And yet, as always, 'yet' is the key word here. After all, if the amount of Pokémon that use sound-related moves increases to the average number of moves which belong to each of the other types along with the number of sound-related Pokémon such that the latter group also begins to contain about the same number of [I]Pokémon[/i} as all of the other types on average, then it might make sense for GameFreak to introduce this 'Sound' type. But they won't do anything about it until this event has happened, so I'd be patient if I were you and wait for more sound-related Pokémon and moves.

Couldn't they have just used 'Serena' and 'Calem' for [I]both[/I} of them? I like those names a lot better.

Nothing confusing there and anyone could understand it. Have a character explain that each Pokémon has different talents and that how you care for your Pokémon trains their stats differently and you're done.

Seems we may get something in August
"A new special showcase has been revealed. For the first time ever, Japan will receive a trade show dedicated to Pokémon called the Pokémon Game Show. Running from August 17th to August 18th in Tokyo's Big Sight venue, this event will provide the latest in news for Tretta, Anime and Cards as well as give visitors an opportunity to play Pokémon X & Pokémon Y before others. The full details of this trade show will be revealed in July"- source: Serebii

Now we only need July and September to have something and I feel happy about the last three months of news left (well the games come out in October before the official release of Corocoro).

Did you hear about this:

https://twitter.com/Pokemon/status/350644797826023424

Pokemon twitter just tweeted that Masuda is recording a special message for fans. It doesn't really sound like there will be new info though...but who knows.

Hey they never caught Cyrus or Ghetsis either, the former even said he won't give up in his plans...actually Team Rocket's story seems more finished than Team Galactic's...so Galactic should appear if any old team.

I'm not sure where I currently stand on Cyrus. On one hand, it does seem like his story is a bit unfinished. You would expect that with a crazy guy like him around, being defeated by some 10-year old kid wasn't even going to be an option. Though truth be told, what else can Cyrus do at this point? Is he going to try to ally with this current generation's villainous to capture Xerneas and Yveltal? That's the only way I can see him being included...

According to Serebii, a Fennekin in a battle at the World Hobby Fair used (or knew, I haven't seen any footage) the move Psychic.

It's not a sure thing.....but it definitely doesn't hurt the case for a Fire/Psychic evolution.

A double battle was also shown but I didn't doubt it would return.

I don't know if GameFreak will troll us by making Fennekin's final form be pure Fire or Fire paired with another type (hopefully not Fighting), even though Fennekin was confirmed to be able to learn Psychic. Why? Because some non-Psychics are able to learn Psychic.

As for other Pokemon's moves, I was surprised when Chespin got Wood Hammer. It doesn't look...woody enough to use the move, but if it does have a good Attack stat, then at least it has a strong STAB to fall back on. I'm also hoping that Chespin also gets Seed Bomb so that it has a recoil-free STAB alternative.

Also, I was totally right on Froakie getting Bounce. I don't know if it'll get Acrobatics, though. (I was talking to AWSquared the other day on possible moves the starters would get and he agreed with some my predictions)

If true, means starters can be Grass/rock, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Flying.

To me, this makes Fenniken the weakest. Three best Fire Starters are all Fire/Fighting and Fire/Psychic can't really take a Stealth Rock. Pitted with possible stat ruining and with possibility of both Froakie and Chespin having evolution type advantage over it...It's a repeat of Snivy. Pray its a Special Attack oriented Fire Type.

Well when you think about it grass tends to do worse than it's fellow fire and water members. Gen 2 has Meganium, which imo isn't much use beyond stall/status, Gen 3...Sceptile is good but is less used even though it has 4x strong against follow Swampert, Gen 5 has Serperior...small moveset.

Gen 4's seem the most even imo, and gen 1...Blastoise seems to be the least used...

Either way as long Fennekin has Swampert like stats (maybe it'll end up being a Fire, special version of Swampert) and a equally large moveset it'll be fine. Fire covers Steel, Grass, Ice, while psychic covers Fighting,and Poison. And while it may not face off well against Stealth rock it's still not as bad as Charzard...and it has additional stab unlike Typlosion.

I was dead-on right with Fennekin learning Psychic, although Chespin getting Wood Hammer caught me off-guard. I do agree with PlatinumDude that it needs Seed Bomb for a recoil-free physical STAB. Froakie getting Bounce was sorta right given its description mentioned jumping as high as a tall building.

And while in most cases with starters the Grass-type was often treated the worst (except Kanto and Sinnoh) like Meganium being purely defensive, Sceptile not getting a lot of use despite its good stats, and Serperior's movepool being shallow. And while there's a slight chance that Fennekin may end up becoming the least used due to the possibility of Game Freak trolling and ruining the stats or something.

I do agree Fennekin may become Fire/Psychic when it evolves, but I don't know if Froakie's evolutions should be part-Flying. Chespin becoming part-Rock when it evolves is alright, given how many odd weaknesses and resistances it gets, like Cradily in 3rd Gen. No surprise if Chespin and Froakie's evolutions get a type advantage over Fennekin's. Also remember that in the Starter discussion thread here, Fennekin is the most popular right now, Froakie being least popular and Chespin being in the middle, but that may all change when the evolutions are revealed.

Keep in mind, this does not say that they learn it by level up. These can also be Egg and TM moves which would make sense for Bounce (em), wood hammer (em), and psychic (tm). A lot of things learn Psychic through TM. A good number learn Bounce as an egg move as well.

Also being Pursuit bait doesn't really help it's case, either. It's a fairly sad thing, since being weak to water and ground is punishment enough for fire types everywhere, add in dark/ghost as well as rock weaknesses and you got yourself and additional triple whammy that I'm sure is every fire-type's worst nightmare.

On the bright side...well, perhaps it could be a glass cannon? That's the only thing I see helping it's case, anyway. Make it learn Nasty Plot or something and sweep from there. :(

They proably think it's a cool combo, and could care less about it's competitive aspects in the end if they do go ahead and do Fire/Psychic. Now Fire/Ground would be another combo it could have as it's based on a fox that lives in the desert (of course not all desert living pokémon are part ground...look at Cacnea). Plus if it has that combo it'll only have water and ground moves to worry about. And 4x weakness to another starter type has been seen before in Gen 3 so it's likely.

Serebii is saying a trailer was featured for Pokemon X & Y during a special preview for the new movie. Apparentely a new pokemon was featured in it called Aulotte/Orotto. Sounds interesting.

Serebii said it looks similar to Beeheeyem....

Did anyone else think Audino when they saw the name? It's probably just coincidence....

Yup but since you said it looks like Beeheeyem i am expecting a Pokemon with a huge hat that Tierno will be using.Maybe it will resemble the musical instrument Aulos which is Flute in Greek.

BTW I was looking around to see France wildlife.
I found an animal that resembles Gogoat and 2 Salamanders.One that likes Fire and one that lives in water.So maybe Helioptile has a split evo?One Water/Electric and one Fire/Electric
