Goronda looks pretty awesome which is also a evo of Yamchan, obviously.
Only Goronda is an evolution of Yancham. The other two are new Fairy type Pokémon that were revealed.

    That is what I thought. I don't understand why Serebii has them listed as Yancham evos.

      My thoughts on this delicious, nutritious slice of news:

      -<insert obvious and repetitive statement about the legendary typing> No, but really, pretty awesome. Also, has anyone noticed their ability can potentially make them dangerous? It pretty much gives their STAB moves an extra boost, making it the equivalent(I think) of having Adaptability. Although, according to the statement of these abilities, they power up those moves, but not exclusively to Xerneas/Yveltal(???)

      - I'm diggin' that evolution of Pancham a lot. Another Dark/Fighting type, and with Iron Fist too. Honedge with No Guard could potentially make it a deadly Pokemon to be put up against. 100% accurate Hypnosis would be as annoying as Spore Breloom. Without levitate though, it has that ground-type weakness which isn't too bad to handle if you have something good to switch out to.

      - The Dark/Psychic type squid is unique. The typing is interesting, although U-Turn pretty much kills it, and it even gets Contrary! Hopefully not as a DW ability, so it can be the first Pokemon ever to have it naturally. Turn Over is interesting when combined with Contrary and other attacks. Overall, neat Pokemon to use competitively, not sure if I will give it a spot on my team when I'm playing through the main game.

      - Lots of fairy-types! Those two new ones they showed look pretty okay. I'm assuming their evolution lines will contain two/three Pokemon.

      - New team = Sophisticated. All I can really say at this moment. Who knows why they are solely in it for the money, besides the usual "taking over the world, binky boy" type of ordeal. Maybe some sort of device or scheme to do something crazy.

      So it seems like most of the gaps from previous speculations have been filled, like the legendary typings. The only thing I'm truly concerned about now, after seven months, is the starter types potential evolution line! Here's to hoping for August CoroCoro? (Edit: Well, I think CoroCoro leaks 'till the 15th, so not all hope is lost atm)

        The cotton candy Pokémon is my least favorite of this generation, don't hate it but it's weirder looking than Vanillite imo.

          Team Flair, I like the name, hate the outfit, tbh. Maybe they'd have a do over on their outfits just like Team Plasma did, but only time can tell. Clearly they use Fire-types. Hopefully their admins are cooler (if they have admins, unlike Team Plasma)

            I'm hoping they have smart grunts, if there must be a grunt that's dumb make it one that reappears multiple times.

            I see the evil team using electric types too...must be the orange jumpsuit colored suits...

            If it's not too much to ask, can the evil team this generation finally use something thats non-generic? Team Rocket is just (insert poison pokemon here), team magma aqua is (insert golbat as well as relevant fire/water type here) and I'm really hoping this evil team mixes things up a bit and uses different variety of Pokemon, really.

            That's really all I'm concerned with.

              If their name is really Flare as in fire (rather than Flair) then I them using fire types like Magma did, along with the generic Dark and poison Pokémon. However I would like to see them using types such as electric types which are usually used by the scientists of the group.

              Really excited about the news!
              Pancham's evolution looks fierce and awesome, definitely going to be on my team
              I wonder though what the new method of evolution will be?

              Not really surprised at the legendaries types, although a 2nd type for Xerneas would
              have been nice. Their abilities are ok i guess, dont seem to original though.

              The pink bird is super cute! Like him more than the cotton candy, although that Sweet
              Pale ability sounds pretty awesome. Shushup being exclusive to Y makes me get that game,
              on the other hand, Clauncher is exclusive to X, so I'm in a pickle for now...

              Those Squids look kinda weird to me, but their typing is definitely great!
              Something new to experiment with, I'll definitely try them out
              Plus, Contary is always an interesting ability to combine with certain attacks

              The Gym leaders look cool as well, i wonder what their types could be?
              And Team Flare might have "simple" goals, but i dont mind as long as they
              have personalities and make for a good battle :D

                I just find it odd that Xerneas is singled typed... and Yveltal is dueled typed. The abilities are a huge letdown... sigh, why not come up with something "new." There is some wasted potential with the legends... but I'll be getting X version, cause Xerneas rocks like Dialga.

                Man,I really like the artwork of the starters in this image: http://serebii.net/corocoro7136.jpg
                My favourite is still Fennekin, but it makes Chespin and Froakie look much better than their initial artwork. I really can't wait for more information on their evolutions.

                Xerneas is fairy type, huh? In se not something to be surprised about. When they revealed the new type, it was only natural that at least one of the legendaries would have it as its primary type. Might have been nice if Xerneas was double type (grass or steel?), like Yveltal is. Yveltal's typing is cool.

                Another thing that's cool is Goronda. I usually don't have much with the fighting types, but this one looks great. 8D I can see it being a very protective parent of its cubs. |D

                At first I was kind "what in heaven's name is that?" about the Squid. It looked a bit like a combination of a bird and something undefinable. But now that I've had a better look at it, it actually looks quite nice. Cephalopods actually have beaks like that, +1 for accuracy. The only thing I'm not 1000% happy with are the "feet". I think it would have looked better if they didn't fold like feed (I can't imagine it being easy to walk with), but instead dangled vertically like the structures on it's cape. It's Pre-evolution is kinda cute.

                I like Honedge. :') Now I can start making a team for my Kalos-based OC

                Shushupu is kind of endearing, but it's not as dorky as the cottonball Pokémon exclusive to X. I've yet to change my initial thought about getting X (thank you, Xerneas).
                I do like the professor, though. He's a cutie. Yes, I can see him live in France (and be somewhat of a flirt?).

                Not much to comment on regarding the new team. Flare seems to be my guess, as they look to be quite fire-themed (even the hair!)
                The new gymleaders look great. The thingies in Zakuro's hair remind me somewhat of the gems in Xerneas' antlers. Maybe it's going to mean something?

                All by all a nice update. I'm still excited about X/Y. This generation looks promising.

                Too much to wake up to! LOL. Just been looking through the scans and I see no disappointments! These new Pokemon look cool.

                Also "The teaser for next month's CoroCoro issue, due for release on August 12th 2013, is said that the magazine will contain the biggest scoop of the century. We'll provide details on that next month" Judging by that we're in for a heck of a scoop next month then.

                Oh, and Maika & Karamanero are the first Psychic/Dark Pokémon, interestingg.

                So i just saw this at Serebii:

                The professor is called Purataanu (プラターヌ possibly romanised into Platane). He will occasionally battle you.

                Which in my opinion is a pretty awesome feature!
                Finally a Professor who also battles :D reminds me of the cancelled Oak fight in the original games

                dis professor.

                MY FANGIRL MODE HAS BEEN ACTIVATED.
                I have loved this entire update thus far. Death Wing and Geo Control sound like wicked awesome moves, too. ;;

                This Professor is my new favorite thing.
                I wonder what his English name will be?

                  Malimar (final squid form) is absolutely glorious. I love it's design.

                  It makes me think of an evil magician, one of the more sinister looking pokemon I've seen.

                  The gems in Zakuro's hair made me think of Sableye.

                    Xerneas' typing did surprise me a bit, being Fairy isn't that weird but pure Fairy? C'mon GF... At least make it Steel/Fairy or Grass/Fairy so that it seems legit! I expected only the 3rd legendary to be of a pure typing not the first one.

                    The cotton candy poke looks cute & edible, I hope I can eat it in Amie, I like it better than Vanillite tbh, I see it being pure Fairy or Fairy/Candy.
                    The pink bird sure looks like a mini Flamingo, I would love to see it evolve into one & become part flying, even though I'm not sure if Flamingos do fly irl .
                    Koronda... What can I say? FREAKIN' EPIC. also I wouldn't compare it to Beartic or Ursaring, since Koronda is the first dual-typed bear who doesn't evolve by level up. And I'm happy to see the bear combo complete! (a white bear of the Antarctic + a brown bear + a Panda)
                    The squids look wicked, Dark/Psychic is a good combination, & it finally gives a value for Bug types which are rarely used (by me at least).

                    I'm not even mad about the version exclusive pokes since you can trade easily via Wi-Fi & don't have to suffer like in gen 3 games & before. Besides I would choose Skrelp anyway.
                    Unlike many ppl here I like the looks of the team, also the gym leaders look cool, I just hope Team Flare isn't as limited in use of pokes as Team Magma, & isn't as stupid too.
                    All the pokes of this gen so far has some kind of a common feel to them... Futuristic perhaps? All I can say is that it's gonna be one weird gen that's for sure!

                      I was surprised when I learned that Xerneas was a pure Fairy; it doesn't even look the part, other than its antlers.

                      Regarding the 5 new Pokemon, I like Koronda the best out of them. I also can't help but wonder why the squids aren't Water type.
                      Water Type is far in the lead of pokemon numbers. So, more aquatic pokemon are going to have other typing when they can.

                      Shushup is apparently a plague doctor Pokémon according to tumblr and holy hell that'd be cool. [link; beware of foul language]


                      My main focus was on the professor though haha. He's a cutie. Pretty young, too. Bulba gave his name as Plantae, so I looked that up and found some related European cultural history. I wonder if he's going to have a focus on medicine, considering that?
                      So, this young Proff. Might be a pokemon doctor or study pokemon medicine. Very young!

                        Like someone said, the Cotton Candy Pokemon is a food Pokemon done right. Take tips Ice ream family.

                        Also the black Gym leader is rock climbing/excavating so should be Ground or Rock. If that's his badge we see, the pattern is bricks.

                        I thought the other one would be Steel, or also maybe Rock because those things look like Shuckle and Solrock, rock types.

                        Nevermind, Citron= Eiffel Tower Electric Type Gym Leader. Yet another blonde Electric Type Gym Leader. I wonder who the girl next to him in the Gym is.

                        Zakuro = Ground (or Rock really, I'm torn) type. They're gemstones in his hair.

                          The rumors from Pokebeach mentioned a Prof. Sycamore. I think that would be the English name.

                          Well it certainly does fit the description of the rumor of this Pokémon being Inkay, the Gyroscope would be able to detect the movement and it seems pretty straight forward. Now that this is looking to be true, I wonder if he was right about the other rumors... Dual-typed moves.

                            The panda's evolution is probably my favorite design so far in terms of regular Pokemon, sweet badass trenchcoat looking thing. Definitely getting myself one of those!

                            The legendary typings aren't surprising for sure, though I would have imagined Xerneas getting a secondary typing... Its been a while since we had a mascot legendary with a mono typing. Yvetal is probably going to be my pick at this point though. Just can't deny its awesome typing and design.

                            Excited for all this news. I've been curious to these Fairy Pokemon though... Why have we only heard of mono Fairy types? Are they keeping combinations for future games or just being secretive about it...hmm.

                            Goronda looks BEAST while Perropafu and Shushup are both SOOOOOOOO cute!!

                            This generation has definitely taken to a much more natural style when it comes to the designs of the new Pokémon and it's really paying off. Compared to Gen V and the more man-made looking Pokémon, this generation is coming up with new designs that are far more superior in my opinion. Take Perropafu for example, it's the cotton candy Pokémon but it doesn't look nearly as awkward as Vanillite did.

                            On the contrary, I'm hoping Team Flare gets a name change for the English copies. I'm not really a fan of their name or their design. However, it is a nice change of pace to see GameFreak take a much simpler route in its plot if their purpose in the games really is to solely make money. We haven't had a plot like that since Team Rocket.

                            Not very surprised by Yveltal's typing, but I was expecting Xerneas to be at least Fairy/Grass not just Fairy. Not something to be really disappointed in though. I'm just glad we finally know their typing.

                            Also, yaaay for expecting something huge next month!

                            I get the feeling that these dual-typed moves will be more along the idea that they're classified as one type but do super-effective damage of another type.

                            So for example, say you've got an Electric type move, your Electric-type Pokemon will get STAB from it but it'll do Water damage instead of Electric damage. That's my vision of what these dual-type moves will be. Would be an interesting twist if you ask me, if not get a bit confusing though.

                            But who knows, maybe they'll be more along the lines of Scald, or actually do dual-type damage.
