I'm kind of starting to question why Mewtwo is even relevant to this generation other than the whole Genetics aspect, unless that's the only reason.

It's really not. Someone pointed out in the Corocoro thread or the Mewtwo thread that the movie is set in Unova, not any new region. It's pretty much the final chapter in the Unova saga.

Yes Mewtwo has nothing to do with XY as of right now. Mewtwo is facing off against Genesect. So basically we are getting Rocket vs. Plasma (as both are manipulated by the said teams) like we were prior to the tsunami and the canceled episodes.

    If not in the Unova region in the small island set that they just released.
    Spoiler:
    Dekorora Islands
    The anime continues onward with Ash, Iris, and Cilan pulling an Orange Island in Unova. Filler until gen 6.


    Strong support its in Unova as in one of the episodes to come:
    Spoiler:
    They will have screen caps and short video clips of Genesect from the movie with Team Plasma involved.


    Yes spoilers cause they are spoilers. Click at own risk.

    Pika pika! We've got some exciting news for Pikachu fans coming up tomorrow! pic.twitter.com/fXEOuaUiK2
    Interestingly, tomorrow is the 15th, the usual day of CoroCoro (and given we haven't seen everything). Could this possibly be related to X/Y? The Eevee thing that Pokemon's Twitter said related to X/Y soooo!

      So.. it's something about X&Y, that Pikachu related? Does Pikachu have a role to play in X/Y, or is that too much of a stretch?

      Or maybe they're just using the Mascot as a method to promote the games. I doubt Pikachu would have that much involvement in the games, if at all.

        Well, it's something for "Pikachu fans". Hence why I was thinking it might be something Pikachu-based.

        Well, that makes sense! It was sort of weird, thinking how it was related to X&Y, but yeah.

        Yup, I don't think we're getting any news for the next month or so, unless Nintendo feels like being nice and giving us something instead of going through Corocoro.

          If Pikachu is given another evolution, I will question their sanity. You cannot mess with Pikachu. Not when he's the primary mascot of the series.

          And if Ash's Pikachu one day evolves into this new evo, I daresay it might kill the anime.

          Yeah Pikachu getting some sort of another evolution isn't going to happen. It already is a three-staged evolution, it's just not happening. It's just (as Elendil said) the Pikachu 3DS.

            I'll buy it if it comes to Australia. I wonder if they'll make starter or legendary based 3DS to go with X/Y.

            Just to make it known, Mr. XY has officially claimed that all of his rumors were fake

            I would hope so. They seem to do it for ever generation if I recall correctly.

            I just want the US to get the pure white 3DS. That's all I want really before X/Y comes out.

            I guess just to put it out there, I'm really not a huge fan of the XL series in general. I understand that they're for people for bigger hands, but for some reason, ever since the first introduction of the DSi XL, I just have never really felt the same towards bigger DSes as I feel that they were just borderline redundant, but that's just me, really. I'm sure they have their uses for those that find a purpose in them. u__u My hands aren't big anyway and are fine my regular 3DS, so I'm going to pass on this. In any case...

            It's really not surprising at all, but it at least stops being from claiming that we're getting a Houndoom evolution named Houndoomed. Yeah, that was enough to tell us it was fake.

            On the topic of the 3DS itself, I kinda still need to get one period =x I'll have the money from working over the summer to get one though!

            Xerneas and Yveltal 3DS's would match colours somewhat of existing ones, So actually it might happen at some point.

            I see a Xerneas and a Yveltal 3DS at least sometime after the games come out? I mean, I suppose I could see it being a promotional thing the week of the game's release, which would make sense, I suppose.

            I mean with Pokémon more than likely being used to help push the sales of the 3DS that definitely wouldn't be out of the question. I personally wouldn't buy it but it'd be a cool option.

            I think it'd be a great idea for people when they buy a 3DS for the first time to play X and Y.

            One thing I want to bring up with you guys:

            Pokeball seals. Or Stickers, whichever name you want to call them. Introduced in Gen IV, they were a pretty nifty way to decorate how your Pokemon was sent out in battle. It was by no means a major thing of course, I believe it was more for those who are more for the aesthetics and pretty animations more than anything else.

            Would you like this feature to make a return in X/Y? I kind of miss the seals, to be honest. :(

            If they made them look nicer, then sure, I'd love them back. Just don't make them so irritating how you had to take them off when you deposited a Pokémon.
