The following is some information about X and Y that we’ve known for a while, specifically pertaining to its hidden Legendary Pokemon. We were asked to hold off posting what you see below until today’s date, so enjoy!

This may also raise the user’s Defense stat.” It has 100 power and 95% accuracy. Diancie can also learn Moonblast, Safeguard, and Light Screen.
  • Diancie is not related to Carbink on its Pokedex evolution page. However it could be a Manaphy/Phione situation. Or maybe the diamonds it throws turn into Carbink after a couple million years? :p
