I agree: Once he's a bulky defensive Pokemon, speed isn't entirely necessary. A mega evolution could see him improve both his defenses and Spc.Attack better though, which wouldn't be bad

Are we going to have better names for the Megas than just "Mega Mewtwo", for example?

It's practically confirmed that all of them will have Mega in their names...
However for Mewtwo we should start reffering to it's Y Mega as Mega Mewtwoy and X Mega as Mega Mewtwox

Looks like that list that was shown before really is coming true. (The Mega Pokemon list a few pages back).

I wouldn't mind if that list were to come true. While I can think of others that can use the Mega Evolution mechanic, the ones on the list are great.

Also, I just want to remind everyone how accurate that rumor back in May is... First Fairy type, then Mewtwo having two forms being activated by items, then the professor giving out the Kanto starters, Sky Battles, EV Training facility... one of the very few things from his initial rumor that is still left unsaid is dual-typed attacks... I hope this is the one he screwed up on and doesn't become an actual thing. There's still the fact that the game could have changed drastically between MAy and now.

Edit: It was May, not February

He was wrong about the professor though. Sycamore according to the rumor was not the regional professor which has long since been stated to be false.

It's interesting how Corocoro no longer mentions the type of Parting shot, Geomancy, and Oblivion Wing...I sure hope those aren't the rumored two type moves...

If by dual-typed, they meant attacks that change in type depending on certain conditions, then I'm okay with it. I just don't want an attack to factor two types simultaneously in the damage output. I can't give a compelling reason why I'm against it, but it would just make things weird.

And, I noticed he did indeed list two professors... Patrice was the one that's been false. So, I guess the "main" rumor has a bit of fallacies to it. I wonder if the cat Pokemon we've been shown is really Espurr, the one he listed. Oh, and the evolution methods to Malamar and Pangoro have been proven true from an official Spanish magazine.

You know that magazine also points out that there's a lot of more legends and Kalos...the words 'a lot' makes me think we'll in for another 13-14 if not more...

I'd be really disappointed if there are no other evolutions to older Pokemon besides Sylveon. Mega Evolutions shouldn't ruin it! I want my Dunsparce, Seviper, Sigilyph, Palpitoad evolutions!

Btw, what is wrong with Chespin's Evo? Volleyball Pokemon xD
(Pokéxperto was again right with some names, Chespin's Evo's name is correct.)

I'm guessing the rest of the names are correct too. I hope that the speculation of one of the names refering to an ice wolf is true...I want one so badly.

If those names turned out to be official then odds are the Dual-typed move rumor has a high change of being true too, supported by the fact that some already revealed moves i.e Parting Shot and Geomacy that already have assigned types are listed as unknown "???" in the latest issue.

I feel like dual type moves would add a new layer of complexity that would not, not not not, appeal to the younger crowd. Everyone (even those with an excellent grasp of types) would have to do a lot of mental math when using a dual type attack on a dual type pokemon, i'd be a mess.


Quick, what would A Fire/Ice type attack do to a Steel/Bug pokemon

Ok sooo, Fire is 2x on both, so we have a 4x then Ice is 2x on bug and .5 on the other sooo, one, so 4x.

fighting/steel on a rock and ground? Mess up one measurement and you may cost you self a battle in this new Pokemon teaches math game.

I don't remember seeing them say what type Parting Shot was when it was revealed. Serebii still has it as ??? since release. As for Geomancy I can't say I've seen where they said its type either. I always thought that everyone just assumed it was Fairy Type since its Xerneas' signature attack. Same with Oblivion Wing.

Other than that Parting Shot's type was never revealed.

Ice is 2x on Bug? Is this a change? As before Ice was 1 x against Bug...

Whoooa! ING accidently revealed these 2 pictures! It's name is Pyroar and no other information is known. It looks Fire/Normal to me, and most likely has the Intimidate ability. It's design is so freaking awesome! This would be Arcanine's buddy :3
I also hope Litleo had a middle evolution, as Pyroar looks like it is a final.

Speaking of Arcanine do you think Pyroar be obtained by evolving it's pre evolution by Fire stone? I hope it's a three member line too and that it's final is a stone evolution as the Fire stone is the only stone that hasn't evolved a Pokemon of a three stage line...

I think there should be more evolutions by stone, especially those that are barely used like Thunderstone which only evolves three Pokemon... two of which are Gen 1 Pokemon and whose evolutions were introduced in said generation.

Pyroar...I dislike the style of maine so I am hoping there is a female equivalent without the maine. Though it is starting to grow on me.

Loving the design of Chiogorasu!! Based On Allosaurus. How cool is that? Cannot wait to see its final evolution!Will be a monster!
Also i think Pyroar is the final form of Litleo. I am guessing.

I'm hoping for its type to be fire and rock, since we don't really have any Pokémon with this particular type combination other than Magcargo. I wouldn't mind if it turns out to be fire and ground, either.

My mistake, I thought those moves already got assigned types i.e Geomacy being Fairy-type etc.

As for Pyroar I'm hoping that's real, it looks and sounds awesome and it's an actual Lion!

Back to the possible dual-type moves;
Parting Shot is most likely Fighting, and its "dual typing" would be Dark, so it is also super effective against Psychic (Since Fighting is not very effective)
Geomancy is a Fairy type move, and could be SE against the Poison type. (Again, Fairy is NVE against Poison)
And finally Oblivion Wing. It's a Dark-type move and could be SE against Fighting.

It is like these moves have a secondary typing, Parting Shot SE against Psychic is like it would be part Dark type. But is not Dark, because it is a Fighting type move. Being SE against a type it shouldn't be is like a side effect. Get it?

P.S. Clemont has a Dedenne. Now we're at least 100% sure he is Electric-type leader.

Dedenne is part Fairy type, he could just as easily be the Fairy type Gym Leader.

This is possible, but lets be honest all the clues lead on that he will most definitely be an Electric Gym Leader.



His design is very reminiscent with Electric Gym Leaders. He uses the color yellow in his clothes, his hair is blonde and that little strand of hair on the top of his head I think is in the shape of a lighting bolt. Lets not forget the fact that he uses some kind of electro mechanical arm and something that appears to be an antenna. There is nothing in his design that tells me he could be tied in with Fairy type.

The other type people where speculating him to be was Steel type, but with an Electric/Fairy type on his team that might not be the case.
