May be getting ahead of myself here but according to Serebii the next Corocoro" due for release on August 12th 2013, is said that the magazine will contain the biggest scoop of the century. We'll provide details on that next month." Wonder if that is Pokémon related, if so wonder what it'll be...also I love that we're getting another early issue next month...wonder if it's another holiday pushing it forward...

Got some weird looking gym leaders this time around. I like 'em. What are they then, Electric and... Rock? Ground? I'm guessing Rock since the name "Zakuro" is written with these kanji: 石榴. The first one by itself is "ishi": "stone".

I'm also diggin the new Team Evil. They've got style.

And I actually don't think there will be a third one tied to the two of them. Creation & destruction is obviously very dual in nature, one springs from the other. Yin & Yang. Not much room for a third principle there.
If you've got a destroying legendary and a creating legendary then the third will be a preserving legendary. It's like in Hinduism: Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver, and Shiva the destroyer.

Then would Xerneas be the creator or the preserver, I wonder? The final one could be a preserver I guess, if Xerneas is indeed the creator. Could go either way though.

doesnt matter Yveltal is the best

Since it's the "Life Pokemon", I would imagine it's the creator. Though, I suppose Preserver would also make sense.

Yeah Life could go both ways, if Life in this context means living than the third maybe birth...but I think Life in this context is birth as it'll fit better with the duality of being born/created, and dying.

I'd say the new pokémon are a bit of a mixed bag, similar to all the previous reveals really. Some good, some bad, none spectacular though.

The new professor is pretty cool, probably my favourite professor design since Oak really.

Do we know what the Raichu and Gengar bits are about?

I'm not a fan of any of the new Pokémon revealed in this month's issue. The rest of the reveals, like the new team and professor, are just ok. I'm wondering what the "biggest scoop of the century" will be. Since B2/W2 I've been a little worried that fusion could become a much bigger part of Pokémon in gen 6, and that's something I don't want. Hopefully that won't be it.

On my way to this thread that very idea came to me...it'll truly be ground breaking...plus it'll explain the helix on the logos...

"biggest scoop of the century" might not be about Pokemon at all. Just saying. Could be movie stuff. Could be new Type-Effectiveness Chart.

Those ideas have come up in the rumor thread, we really don't know enough to guess...if it is really Pokémon related it may be the biggest surprise of the generation...or in the whole series, or confirm one of the rumors we have.

As for the Pikachu and Haunter with the evolution pieces, I think it's talking about evolution methods, someone in Pokebeach forums mentioned a new evolution method though no site has anything on it...

Dual Typed meas two types. If it doesn't have two types, then it isn't Dual Typed.
Well I didn't say that wouldn't be the case, I only said that in my opinion, it would make more sense for a dual-typed move to change the type instead of having both at the same time.

It's still called "dual-typed" since it has access to both types.

2 types at the same time would be ridiculous. 8x SE damage? No thanks. Imagine how complicated everything would become. Seems unlikely imo.
Also the term "dual-type" could be a rough translation and we don't know exactly what that means so I guess we should wait and see what happens to that rumor.

The "Dual" Types means 2 types. That doesn't mean the attack is one type while the damage is another. If that were the case then Dual Type attacks have existed since Gen 2. Which is not the case. Pokemon are Dual Typed. They have two types associated with them. The term is already laid out for us, so calling an attack Dual Typed means the attack is 2 types.

Being one type and damaging another does not give access to two types either. The type that deals the Damage is the only one that counts as far as calculations are concerned. Resistance, Immunity, Super Effectiveness, STAB are all based on the damage type.

As far as translation goes, the guy was supposedly giving out english names so that was supposed to be the translated version. No mistakes were made according to info. Which was already proven wrong with his "Panchum" explanation.

He proably over exaggerated his own accuracy by saying it was all perfect if his other rumors do come true in the end, we won't know until the games come out if he was mostly right.

Now onto the issue, I really enjoy the look of the signature moves of both mascots, they look very beautiful. I wonder if we'll see any more legends soon or if GF will allow us to discover them on our own. At this point in BW we already got one of the musketeers, though that may have been due to leak rather than corocoro...

I have to say, the types of Xerneas and Yveltal were obvious enough right before this reveal, in fact Dark/Flying was my first choice for Yveltal's type. Xerneas being pure-Fairy was something surprising but Fairy is what comes close to what we wanted for a "light" type so no surprise there. The signature moves also look really awesome, I do love Xerneas' one though. Maybe I'll still get both versions but X might be my main given Xerneas but who knows I might play both.

The Pancham evolution looks a bit too much like Beartic imo but that may be just me. Nice to see another Pokemon with that awesome Dark/Fighting type, it has little weaknesses and Hammer Arm seems like a good move for it.

The squid thingies are really interesting because little Maika is like normal, but its evo (sorry I have trouble spelling its name lol) is actually upside down, which fits the concept of their origin I guess. At least we finally have a Pokemon that gets Contrary as a natural ability, and that Dark/Psychic type gives it a single weakness to Bug, albeit a quadruple weakness. Don't know how well it will fare in competitive with all those U-turn users running rampant.

And the two new Fairy-types are so adorable! I like the cotton candy thing slightly more, could be like Vanillite in some way.

i loved Vanilluxe because I though it was interesting. This Cotton Candy Pokemon is just pushing it in my opinion. The others are pretty alright though, and I do like Pancham's new evolution!

Vanilluxe was only an ice cream cone pokemon, but this one resembles an actual animal, whose to say if there exists a fictional animal out of steel or one made out of a plush cotton. The issue with vanilluxe was that it did not resemble any sort of biological creature, it was literally an ice cream cone with eyes. This one appears to be a puppy with a cotton candy coat.

^You basically said what I think about the Pokémon. I wouldn't be surprised if it evolves into a more dog-like shape.

Technically, it was really an ice shard covered in snow on top that made it resemble something like ice cream. It was also created by the president of Game Freak of Europe, so you should give the man a bit of respect for having his own fakemon added as an official Pokemon.

James Turner is a British Graphic Designer that recently joined Gamefreak (5th Gen)...He designed Vanilite's line, Vullaby's line, and Golett's line. Don't see anywhere that says he's the president of the Britain Branch.

Can't find that a Britain Branch exists...Info I find says Gamefreak is only located in Japan.

I was trying to remember what James Turner is known for based on memory from Bulbapedia's trivia page of Vanilluxe.

Oh...just noticed something. Citron's gym has the green grid background that looks similar to that one "Magical" Gym back from the very beginning.

The rooms look a bit different, but similar to a point that I can't really tell if it may be the same Gym or not.

Citron's definitely has a Digital look so it could go either way with Steel or Electric.

Honestly, what's so bad about it having one type? For all we know, Fairy could barely have any weaknesses (Poison is a terrible offensive type so Steel is the only one remaining and this is ASSUMING that they are weak to poison and steel, hypothetically), so this might make Xerneas stronger than you think!
