    My guess is a Dynamic Storyline where your actions effect the story.

    Since Mewtwo would likely be an event only pokémon, I highly doubt they would reveal a second forme so soon.

    The only reason the last one was debuted was because of the film - normally event pokémon are not 'officially' announced?

    I would rather see something innovative. Maybe new game mechanics, battle techniques... something totally new, unguessable and revolutionary for the series.

      To me, that sounds like best option so far. For it to really be the "Scoop of the century", it would have to be something that makes a huge impact on the series. New pokémon, NPCs, types, moves, etc. are cool details, but nothing huge. However, something makes a significant change in the way the game is played would be worthy of "scoop of the century" status.

      I'm not really taking this to really be "scoop of the century" I think it's just one of those things that they say to get people hyped.

      As for what it is, perhaps the starter evolutions, though it seems to me at least a bit early for that( I'd think they'd keep them hidden until September at earliest)

      The only things I can think of being such big news would be:
      A. The evolutions of the starters. I think it's about time we got them, too. Not the final forms, those can be revealed much closer to release--I'm talking about their next stages, so we can have a better idea of where they're going.
      B. The "extra" features, by which I mean this gen's version of Contests and Musicals.
      C. More Pokemon in addition to the starter's evolutions. It could be "the biggest scoop" just by number of Pokemon revealed.

      Also that new tree. It would be nice to get his official art.

      I would love for it to be something completely unexpected, but I just can't help but feel like it'll be something that's not quite that spectacular. Maybe it'll be full on coverage of the new GTS and Global Link? Or maybe it'll be something like the starters having two evolutionary paths? (I could get excited about that idea...) In the end, I just kinda hope it doesn't disappoint, especially with such a title. Wouldn't be the first time they've over exaggerated.

        Their obviously exaggerating to get sales up that's what companies do. However that doesn't mean the info will be any slouch I'm expecting a decent amount of pokemon (6-7),other important NPC's, minor story elements, and 1-2 new mechanics.

          It's either going to be either a new type, a new statistic, or a Pokemon evolving into one of those legendaries. This should be a rather interesting surprise.

            Okay, so after reading all the posts in this thread and everyones theories, I gotta say, I'm disappointed. I mean, really? Half of what everything has been said is just things you'd find out by playing the game or by looking at serebii the day after the release. Starter evolutions, Mewtwo having a second new form, another eeveeultion, this being the last game, the entire Pokedex? How does any of that qualify as "scoop of the century"? We will find out the starters evolutions within like 3 hours of gameplay. If Mewtwo has a second form, what is so big about that? To be the biggest thing for Pokemon in the comming century? No. This isn't the last game. There is a thread all about that and if you look at it for two seconds, you'll know, this is not the end. If it was we'd have found out earlier. Another eeveelution wouldn't be century worthy either, and neither would a second new type. And we will not get the entire Pokedex. No offense, but that is a little dumb. To show off literally every new Pokemon and the reurning ones before release will not happen. Ever. That completely spoils half of the fun of a new generation. Finding the new Pokemon and experiencing them for ourselves for the first time.

            Unless this news is going to be anti-climactic, none of these theories are happening.

              I agree with you and that's why I haven't made my guess yet.
              I just can't imagine what the "scoop of the century" will be. It has to be something completely new and unexpected, so I don't think any of us is even supposed to guess it.

                either A or B

                A: Exaggeration. Though we will get a bunch of typical information such as new pokemon, evolutions, characters, and features. Basically, your typical issue of CoroCoro, just more information than usual.

                B: We might get some, about as much as we usually, info relating to X and Y. Maybe 4/5 new pokemon, ect. However, we will also get an announcement for a counsel game, X and Y version for Wii U (similar to smash bros.), online game, Hoenn Remake, or some sort of new project all together.

                  How does anything related to pokemon make "the scope of the century" ? Everything that could possibly be released can been found out in the game with in a few hours? I know what I said is probably not worthy. As others have said, I am not really getting my hopes up. I think something similar has been said in the past and it was never really worth the hype.

                  I will say that one other thing about it being a scope of the century is an online game. But I don't see that happening. We don't even know if it it related to pokemon. Yes it is true that it made it sound like it, but it never said it directly. It could be something totally different.

                  I don't think it is worth getting hyped about, I just like seeing the new pokemon so I don't really care about this news. The only thing I really want to see is the pokemon, Gyms and E4/Champion.

                  I think it will presumably be starter evolutions, I don't think final evos would be revealed until game release (as has been shown with past generations) but I'm hoping for at least the middle stages. Maybe I could also see the full Gym Leader and Elite Four/Champion roster getting revealed.

                    Again, unless this is just some anti-climactic bull, I see this being something affecting the franchise, or at least the gaming series, as a whole. I can't make a guess that would fit "scoop of the century" that isn't something that I would actually think about or talk about or see others doing so for the next century.

                    I never really took the hype literally. You all are setting yourselves up for disappointment really. I'm certain that it'll be a let down because of the high hopes you guys are expressing. Lol, even though I think it is an exaggeration, I think this'll just be the biggest haul of information we'll get before the release since it's only a month away from release (since this is the September issue of CoroCoro). We'll probably get a decent amount of new monsters, and more details on the actual story in the games. I doubt it'll be anything worth talking about in the upcoming years of the century though. Calm down.

                    Well I do expect it's something worthy of the announcement. If it's just something I'll find out within 10 minutes of playing (starter evos? really?), I'll be sincerely disappointed.

                    In fact, I'm not expecting anything X/Y related, but a new game altogether.

                        Anyone remember this thing? "The well known game, played all around the world, is about to be reborn thanks to a surprising collaboration." That's what I think the new scoop will be. If it was X/Y related, you think the original X/Y announcement back in January would've been the scoop of the century.

                          I think that's already been revealed as some kind of horse solitaire. The "well known game, played all around the world" is probably referring to the solitaire.

                          I hope the scoop is something good. If it's just starter evolutions or something, I think I'll be disappointed.

                            They already announced that game, its solitaire and horseback riding

                              gold and silver did the same and it wasnt called "scoop of the century" so i dont think its that.i dont have a certain idea but whatever it is its either a bluff or something that might impact the series altogether so i dont think its just a new forme of a pokemon or evolutions and stuff. in other words i think it will also affect other generations rather than only gen 6.

                                Personally, I think it will be a branched Vanillite evolution with 3 different coloured Vanillite fusing together and its name will be a pun on Neapolitan and Napoleon (since Kalos is based on France!). A new ice-cream based Pokemon would definitely be the biggest scoop!

                                  I notice that people are expecting way to much. Some say that they will be disapointed if they reveal the starter evolutions or another mewtwo form or even another type.
                                  Why would you be disapointed by that? If they didn't say it was the "scoop of the century", you would be very very very happy with any of those.

                                  Just don't expect some kind of life changing news. just be happy with what they'll give

                                    Well so if it wasn't called scoop of the century? It could still be called scoop of the century even if it is a new type revealed + with the actual highlight that maybe none even expected.
