Maybe its Sylveon. She has that one ribbon that floats outward.
When all four of them were revealed last month of Smash, Gogoat got the most attention showing off the new riding feature and whatnot. Perhaps they counted that.

I don't think that's Sylveon though. Why put a question mark over a Pokémon that has been revealed to the public months ago? Unless it's a male equivalent to Sylveon like some people have been speculating, but I doubt that.

    Why put a ? on a paper airplane when they did that? Why put it on a yo-yo when they were doing the talent show? Why put the ? on the guys face when he got blasted in the face with the powdered sugar?

    They just do it because they can. There's never been any rhyme or reason behind why they sensor things. They kept doing it on the Eevee Family short despite us knowing what Eevee Evolutions there were. They put 3 different colored ?'s when they revealed Mewtwo and it was still just 1 Pokemon being revealed.

    They just want to build suspense to bring the kids to watch the show.

      Seems silly of Smash, but Xander has a point, it could very well be added hype. However combined with E3 and Corocoro being so close to the corner, and Masuda's said to be in this week's episode suggest it's a new Pokémon...

        I doubt the Pokemon they included in the new typing list were all of them... I don't think they listed Clefairy, which should be a Fairy type considering it's the Fairy Pokemon...

        I think there's a good chance that there will be a few other Pokémon from the past to get changed into a Fairy-type besides the four they listed. I'm just relieved we can finally put the Sylveon type speculation to rest. Amen.

          Although I doubt that's the case, it certainly looks like it could pass as a Swoobat evolution.

              Maybe it is because of the 3D feature it brings which can be a bit dangerous to younger audience. This was the reason that gave PMD: Gate to Infinity a little older rating than previous PMD titles

                Yes, the conference is still yet to come. That will happen later this evening / tonight.

                  Now that we've had all the news we got in the Nintendo Direct which was unexpected, I'm wonder if the conference will just cover that and answer questions related to it? I hope not, I still want more news! ;;

                  That happened to me too. You can watch it here.

                  Vivillon is supposed to have a special meaning to its pattern. Anyone think there's something to that? It vaguely looks like a map, like one of the old maps from Gen I days that didn't have details. It could also be a puzzle, like the puzzle to get through some cave or whatnot to get to a legendary.

                    Uh-Oh, it's the whole Wailord/Relicanth thing all over again! I hope not though, I hate puzzles like that, I don't want to catch & evolve a Pokemon just so I can catch a legendary, it wastes more time than battling the legendary itself.

                    Actually, I'd love something like that to occur again! Unlocking the puzzles to find the Regi Trio in RSE was one of the most fun hunts I've had when it comes to finding and catching legendaries.

                      With the Sky Battles, it makes sense if Yveltal is able to participate in them (typing and ability allowing, of course) because then each legendary could get something 'new'. Yveltal can do Sky Battles, while Xerneas could be Fairy-type.

                      If there's a flying type gym it would be interesting to partake in a Sky battle for that!

                        Actually I don't read Braille, & even if I was blind I wouldn't have known how to read it off a screen, so...
                        If it was a puzzle that won't need me to open the net to know its solution then it's fine

                        Did they release details for Sky Battle mechanisms? I wonder how they could make that a unique experience.

                          No. From what they have on the main Pokemon site the new update to battles is the new Type. There is nothing about Flying battles.


                          Did anyone else notice the caption for Helioptile?

                          "Whoa! The Helioptile you stepped on attacked!"

                          Watch out GameFreak, PETA is coming to get you. lol

                          Oh, from that same video, I wanted to point out that it seems like not that much change has been made to the Pokémon's voices. Kind of disappointed by that if I'm honest, although not surprised.

                            She's asking if the player wants to have a sky battle :b plus there's a screenie of a Haunter and another new Pokemon (probably Fletchling's evolution) in some split screen deal that would support this, since Haunter has Levitate and it's rumored that the only Pokemon to be able to partake in sky battles are Flying-types and Pokemon with Levitate.

                            But I'm curious how that encounter with Helioptile works out. We already have random encounters and then the interactive encounters like Foonguss in Black and White. Do we see the Pokemon or is it a random encounter or...?

                              Its hard to tell if that's a real battle or if that's something new for regular battles as well. Main site hasn't updated anything about it either. Probably won't until later tonight either which is disappointing. I'm wondering if its a new feature to replace Contests and such.
