    Just saw the news a few minutes ago.

    First impressions were a little mixed. Didn't like the new bird at first because I thought the hooded bird fakemon from a while back looked better mixed with the official art not really doing it justice.....but I looked on deviantart and it made me appreciate Yayakoma a good bit more.

    I got what I wanted with the regional bird (one more similar to Taillow and not a big round ball)

    The goat and the panda look really cool....and I don't have any problem with the electric guy either although he put me off a bit at first too.

    I'm glad we're seeing some stuff about the region too.

    So this might mean that all regular trainers will have their own full portraits when you battle them. :D
    This and the male protag's art are the most exciting reveals for me ha ha!!

    I think Erikiteru is really cute and kinda derpy, I like it alot and it has an interesting type, Normal hasnt been a secondary type iirc. I like the Panda as well, really cute. Gogoto is interesting with the thing about riding it, I wonder if it is the only one you can ride, it might make sense,and the reason for it being made. The bird is ok, its not my favorite but it's not bad either. Nice to see we finally got some types with these Pokemon instead of question marks lol.

      A thought occurred to me just now.

      We can probably consider the robin to be the regional bird......but do you think Erikiteru might be considered the regional rodent? I know it doesn't seem to be a rodent but it is part normal type.

      I hope not though, it looks too cool to end up with a weak evolution.

      Honestly not a big fan of the bird, but the other ones look pretty cool. I especially like the goat-looking one.

      I'm most happy about the region being based off France though. I always thought the Diamond/Pearl main character designs looked French inspired, but now we have a whole region that is based on France. Me being of French origin, I find this really exciting.

      I hope the missing tidbits from the pages with the two Legendaries tell us their typings. I grow tired of waiting to find out. Odd they'd wait this long to tell us, perhaps there really is something to the rumor of a new typing. Hopefully we get a tidbit more information on the 19th.

        Maybe we're having a cool regional beginner this time. Like Poocheyena and Lillipup.

          I actually think Gogoat is the least likely of the 4 to get an evolution
          Gogoat looks more likely to have a pre-evolution than an evolution I think. I would love if the lizard evolved into an Electric/Dark type pokemon.

          It's annoying how some of the pictures on the magazine are so tiny....even if the scans were crystal clear it would be hard to make them out.

          Lastly I find it a bit suspicious that they so openly gave out the types of these pokemon while keeping Sylveon's type a secret.

            These may just be your standard regional Pokémon, however, and/or based on a theme from past generations. As soon as the bird was revealed, for instance, you just know it's the next Pidove. Meanwhile, Sylveon can still generate discussion and mystery up until the last possible moment, and then BOOM, the big surprise comes in the movie.

              I'm guessing these are fake?

              Spoiler:





              Just spotted them on tumblr. The final form of Chespin being split between the two pages seems pretty off to me. The two pictures don't look like they're related or have the same art style either. So it likely means both are fake.

                  The new battle animations are going to look amazing. Just look at the bird using Flame Charge. (Small image next to the bird's right foot)

                    I like how the bird's eye resembles another bird facing the opposite direction.

                      These new Pokémon have grown to me since they were revealed earlier today. Gen 6 may shape up to have some the best Pokémon design wise (except that Slyveon).

                        Although, if I'm wrong, then this would totally make up for not having the follow-me feature.
                        I'm hoping that this leads into having Pokemon use their bodies for overworld abilities instead of using HMs.

                        For example, you should be able to ride a water Pokemon of a certain size on the water without teaching it surf. Pokemon with sharp claws or incisors should be able to cut down small trees. Pokemon with hard heads should be able to headbutt. Basically any Pokemon that would be able to learn the HM moves should be able to perform the actions in the overworld *without* wasting a move slot.

                        This leak has really restored my hope for this generation. So much new stuff we've never had before!

                        I made a video about it in case anyone wants to hear my thoughts.

                            I am so pleased with the reveal! I really love the look of Elikiteru and Yayakoma, and it's really great that the latter will be compatible with at least one fire type move. Judging by the other screenshots the 3D graphics look impressive and as mentioned already, the Karos region seems to be quite rural and full of greenery and lush forests. I cannot wait to see what comes next!

                              Just spotted them on tumblr. The final form of Chespin being split between the two pages seems pretty off to me. The two pictures don't look like they're related or have the same art style either. So it likely means both are fake.

                                    I posted my thoughts on that elsewhere, but basically - don't read too much into those rumours.

                                    All that happened was that a piece of info this source stated occurred in there being a new electric type move. Which isn't very remarkable - we get multiple new moves for each typing every gen as it is!

                                    Or look at it this way - that source gives nine different points as far as we know. The chance of just one point being proven correct if it is a guess is low. The chance of one from that whole list being right though is much higher, and certainly not insignificant.

                                    I'd only worry about new fairy types and whatnot only when more info from that turns out to be true. And even then, history has had many instances of sources being only partially correct.

                                    Btw, the first screenshot you posted is rumour, the second is separate info from coro coro and has naught to do with that rumour source. =p

                                      Elikiteru's seems to be receiving a lot of flak on other sites, but I think it's cute, and kinda fantastical. Never seen a lizard with ears before; nice to see Game Freak getting creative with this kinda stuff.

                                      Really like Yayakoma and his Fire attacks; so hoping he becomes a Fire/Flying-type; he could end up being an awesome regional bird if it happened.

                                      I wanna bet on the English translations before we get them, 'cause I got some good ones (and sometimes I even get them right!):

                                      Yancham -> Pandit (panda/bandit); I'll be surprised if this guy doesn't evolve into a Fighting/Dark-type named Panderado. I mean, he's called the Naughty Pokemon; it just seems so perfect for him. =P
                                      Yayakoma -> Roblin (robin/warbling); the birds in our games typically have such quick and simple names (Pidgey, Starly, Taillow, Pidove), so I don't see that changing this gen.
                                      Elikiteru -> Genecko (generator/gecko); those ears on his head have got to behave like some sort of solar generator, and it's better than putting "electric" in the name like his Japanese name. We already have so many Electric Pokemon with "electric" somewhere in their name; I assume Pokemon USA is aware of that. =P The ears may even be a play on how some gecko's frills, when folded, look kind of like floppy ears.
                                      Gogoat will probably keep his name (go-go/goat); you couldn't ask for a better English name for this guy.

                                      As for attack translations, I predict:

                                      Parabola Charge -> Arc Absorb
                                      Parting Remark -> Last Laugh

                                      Unknown as of yet. Maybe they will be revealed on the English Pokemon site in a while, but don't hold your breathe.


                                      As for my thoughts on the Pokemon: Goat riding seems.... interesting and I wonder if that mechanic will extend beyond it. I like the bird and imo it looks better than Pidove already (who I was pretty disappointed by in the end). Lizard I'm a bit undecided upon but its typing is something different. That panda is my favourite of the bunch though. It looks pretty mean, heh.
