Well, you know how specific pokemon have features that are different from their gender?

Like for instance, Female Gyarados have white whiskers and Male ones have colored ones~

You know how Blaziken males have longer crests right? While females have shorter. Also Pikachu males have pre gen IV tails while the females became heart shaped at the tip, same with Heracross only for the horn. Things like that, I'm wondering if they'll be new changes to old mons to differentiate between the two genders of one species.

Oh! You mean more distinct differences between genders? I wouldn't mind, especially because most Pokemon don't really have gender differences at all. :x

This list disagrees with you, sir. There are actually a number of Pokémon with gender differences. Except in Gen V. While they had the most drastic gender differences, there were only three of them; two if you don't count Jellicent since it's an evolution. I hope we get more of them though. I always enjoy trying to spot the tougher differences some of them have, but I wouldn't mind the larger differences that Gen V introduced either.

ERMERGERSH! What if that's what the region professor studies? The genetic differences in male and female Pokémon and why some of them have them and others don't. It would totally correlate with the genetics theme too.

That would make sense, especially since these games are X and Y which are sex chromosomes as well as Axis'.

Well I did say more distinct gender differences. :x There are quite a handful in which it's somewhat hard to tell what the differences were.

Yeah I don't want another Torchic kind of difference. Where it is one pixel on the rump.

Generation IV rather do this well as they are many Pokemon really look different with gender differences. That sometimes make me wonder why GF didn't do the same with Generation V. We've only got two Pokemon with really distinct gender difference. While the differences that the two Pokemon have, why wouldn't they make some? Like, female Sawsbuck have smaller horn or female Samurott have less beard.

You sure same as your name, Game Freak >__>

Ninfia (or Sylveon) in battle and it looks like it's using a mixture of moves which include Trump Card and Swift. Also notice how Hariyama, Gligar and Krookodile are in the scene too, I wonder if they will contribute to the Pokedex?

For me, I'm not surprised and actually kind of happy that we'll get plenty of past generation Pokemon this generation. n_n; So yeah~!

I like how sort of angelic/delicate looking it is in battle. :3 In fact, I kind of like what we've seen for the in-game battle scenes thus far, it really isn't as bad as I thought it'd be at first. XD;

Sylveon? What kind of name is that. Guess its flying though, no reason for it not to be now, the name is of an air fairy, so yeah. Still a weird design for flying.

Yeah, it was confirmed today by The Pokemon Company. I'm happy that they decided to change it's name completely rather than going for Nineon, Sylveon sounds much more majestic.

Unfortunately, there wasn't much pokemon news related to pokemon X&Y on the new Nintendo Direct. ;__;

I do like how Sylveon looks in battle; other than Trump Card and Swift, I wonder what other attacks it used? Maybe they were new attacks? Or just ampted up versions of the previous ones?

It looked like it used shadow ball in one scene.

Definitely does sound better than Nineon. I might actually get a female one for my first playthrough (if possible) and call it Sylvia haha.

Can I just say that the game is looking so good? And its not final footage, which likely means that the battles will look even better hopefully. I can't wait till they come out, its gonna be such a fresh experience.

Nineon would've just reminded me of a TV show I used to dislike. XD; So really, the current name is nicer, and I'm glad they decided to change it (and that we found out early!)

I think Sylveon just sounds better anyway compared to the alternative. Also...

It's really cuddly, even though the bows and stuff sound like something a bit iffy.

Yeah, going by the name which usually indicates the typing (Glacier, Leaf etc) I'd say either Bug, Steel or Flying.

Huh, looks like the battlegrounds are dynamic too. What I mean is that in the original trailer the forests edge battleground was a flat plain, but here there is a ledge behind Sylveon, and I'm pretty sure I caught a glimpse of a structure in the original trailer battles as well.

That'd be great if it looked like bug, which it... kind of doesn't. :( Everything else actually looks like its typing, unfortunately.
