    Let's hope that all this talk about a Jynx evolution even while speculation and fakemons now will become true this generation.
    Also does anyone else see Sylveon as the mascot of this generation?

      I think the only sort of mascot it'd be is a gimmicky one. I think the Pikachu clone will kind of keep that role, because... that's what the Pikachu clone is usually for. XD;

          Ok...so I got to chat with a Nintendo employee yesterday and we got into a big Pokemon discussion. I kept trying to get hints out to see if she knew anything.

          Commented on Xerneas and Yveltal. She simply smiled...I know she caught on.

          Ended talking about a more broad topic of starters. I ask I wonder how many times we'll get Fire/Fighting. She chuckled and said "Oh, you'll be surprised."

          Talked about a bunch of other Pokemon and eventually made it to Eevee. We talked a bit about Sylveon and she was dead set on hoping it was Dragon to complete the Special Type theory. She just smiled oddly when she said it.

          I dunno...Nintendo rep may have been dropping hints?

            She's bluffing imo. If that were me I'd just smile related to that and try to fool people. :x Plus Fire/Fighting AGAIN is unlikely...

              She made it sound as if Fennekin will indeed be Fire/Fighting...oh well it's a good typing... just hope it be a special version of Infernape.

              Slyveon being Dragon :3

                Hm, that is a possibility. From what this person said it seems we won't be getting any more fire and fighting starters this gen anyway or he is another fire and fighting type which would be tiresome. She seems to have implied sylveon is dragon but i don't see how i that is possible but if nintendo says it then so be it. If she is telling the truth then that would be interesting info. Also where did you chat with a nintendo employee?

                  Well Syveon's color scheme does sort of match the old Dragon type tag much like the rest of the eeveelutions.

                    It matches the colours but there's got to be more to it. Even just smiling could get them into trouble I think?? idk any sort of hint, really. So I'd be not willingly jumping onto this bandwagon so quickly :x

                    I honestly this this person was just messing with him. I dont think they'd be allowed to drop any real hints so Id take it all with a grain of salt tbh.

                      If it can't be leaked back to the corporate office, then they can drop hints as they want. She's told me about various events that they were hosting a few weeks before we'd learn of them in the internet. Even when it was a guy he'd tell me when certain things would go on sale and even let me look through their company's tablet to see sales and promotional events.

                      I'm sure she was playing with me, but she loves speculating as much as we do so she could have mixed truth into it just to keep us guessing.

                      Im just the kind of person that I wont believe it until I see it, so that's my reaction to this as of now. I really hope Fennekin is not Fire/Fighting, its been done to death already. Its time for something different.

                        Just by bringing it up, a crackdown might be on again to remind people not to drop information. Of course, if she was purposely giving false information...that might be their plan. In that case, Dragon is off of the Sylveon type possibilities.

                        And that's my second guess. I still think it's Ghost.

                          Yeah I think it may be best to keep any info one gets on their own to themselves to avoid anyone getting in trouble...even if we are thirsty for information.

                          Anyways we got 19 (or is it 18 now for Japan?) days until Corocoro comes out. If it has any info the official website will likely update before, so let's just be patient (easier said than done).

                          I wouldn't put it passed them to pull off another Fire/Fighting starter, but I have hope that with Fennekin things may turn out differently this time.

                          Gosh, I hope there's something X and Y related in next month's issue. I think people are getting restless for some new information and are already tired of speculating the same things repeatedly.

                          I think this might possibly be another slow month and Im prepared for such. Id say do not expect a massive info dump any time soon. We literally got nothing last month, so Im not getting my hopes up. I do hope for something, Id like to know more about the region, see 1-2 Pokemon( I dont expect more honestly) and maybe some screenshots. It sounds kinda pessimistic but I dont want to expect much.

                            I don't think recent Pikachu clones have been the mascots of the series. Didn't those roles go to Lucario and Zoroark?

                              yup, any next gen pokemon in a gen before it's gen movie always has the mascot example lucario is 4th gen but was the mascot for a movie in 3rd gen and then became the 4th gen's mascot.

                                That's how I've seen it, no
                                rodent has been a mascot of a generation or movie since Minun and Plusle in the Deoxys movie where they appeared a lot which was the end of the Hoenn centered movies...
                                I hope the roddent will be a fire rodent if they pull a Gen II on us...and that Minun,Plusle, Pachirisu, and/or Emoga get evolutions.

                                  Marill has never been the Gen 2 mascot; it was always Pichu. If Marill really was the Gen 2 mascot, then it wouldn't have been included in other regional dexes past Gen 2 (Plusle Minun never appeared in Sinnoh's dex, and Pachirisu never appeared in BW2's Unova dex neither).

                                  I think that's because a main character has owned Pacharisu and Emolga, and it would get confusing.

                                    I'm late but I agree with this. You might see another of either in a Trainer or Gym battle in the series, or as a story element (or in rare cases as another occurrence in a later generation, such as the two different Bulbasaur and Ash brought his to meet May's before it went back to Oak's Lab).

                                      Well Clefairy was originally the mascot of the series before Pichu's evolution stole it's spot...the Pika family are spotlight thieves. Also the pattern of not appearing the next generation was post generation 2, the fact that it was refered to as Pikablu pre release and that it got a pre evolution the next generation make it more of a Pikaclone than the rest...

                                      Anyways a fire rodent (that isn't Cyndaquil...) will be cool and cute :3

                                      I wouldn't mind if we got another electric rodent. Some things are just tradition nowadays.

                                        Marill was the Gen 2 Pikachu clone. Them being available in the next series has little to do with it as well. Marill was owned by a Main Character (at some point all of the clones were owned by a Main character or were part of their story).

                                        Pichu isn't a clone. Its the pre-evolution to Pikachu therefore is not a clone of Pikachu.

                                        As for 6th Generation's Pikachu Clone....I kinda hope for a Grass type. While we are on the topic of clones, I wonder what the new regional rodent will be based off of, and what the regional bird will be.
