Sylveon Collection

A new "Sylveon Collection" is set to be released in America on November 15th! It will come with a brand new holo Sylveon promo, Eevee and its other Eeveelutions as holo promos, a Fairy-type Energy card, a Sylveon figure, and four Black and White series booster packs. Thanks goes to Chaos Cards for the news!

This will be Sylveon's TCG debut: not even Japan has received a Sylveon card yet. It's also the first Fairy-type Pokemon card we've seen. The other Eeveelutions were originally released at Pokemon Centers in November 2012 and then in a file collection at the end of that month. They are all reprints from Dark Explorers. Eevee is a reprint from Plasma Freeze.

Pokemon's Facebook page has revealed that Honedge evolves into Doublade! "This Steel- and Ghost-type Pokémon is capable of carrying out intricate attacks by telepathically coordinating its two blades to deliver twice the slice in battle."

A new English X and Y trailer is currently airing on Cartoon Network and has been uploaded to Nintendo's YouTube channel, as you can see below. It seems this slipped by almost everyone, but at 0:08 for about three frames, there appears to be two of a new Pokemon inside an enclosure. They appear to have gray bodies. We of course cannot tell for sure what they are, but they do not appear to match any known Pokemon or overworld object. Thanks goes to Gin for spotting this!

Update (10/1) - We have reason to believe that most of the rumors in this post, and only this post, are false. The rest of the rumors we have posted over the past few months continue to prove reliable though.

Another "source" has sent us a new set of information about X and Y. Like the last batch of leaks, consider all of this a rumor until Pokemon reveals it. Like our last source, some of this information is from memory, so it may not be 100% accurate. Again, please treat all of this with caution - even though we've been shown evidence to back up some of the information, we could still be falling for an elaborate trick. Time will tell!

To discuss this story, check out this forum thread.

  • Trusk is a Grass/Rock boar Pokemon with long green tusks coming out of its mouth. He is gruff, has grey skin, and features green leaf-like ears. It has an "adorable" pre-evolution with tiny tusks and a leaf at the end of its tail.
  • A Normal/Poison porcupine Pokemon named Quillom can be found quite early in the game in the forest. It has white skin with light purple quills. He has a Poison-type quill attack which damages and has a high chance of poison.
  • A Ghost-type spider Pokemon is found in caves. It is dark gray with blue spots and multiple light grey eyes. It has a feint light blue mist around its abdomen. The source doesn't remember the spelling of its name, but says it was something like "Apparachnid." He thinks it may have an evolution.
  • There is a Ground-type badger Pokemon that is dark brown with black stripes going up its face. It knows Slash and a new biting move.
  • Reconfirmation that Froakie's final evolution is Water/Fighting. It looks similar to a poison dart frog. The dark blue now takes over its body almost entirely. There are a few even darker (almost black) spots on his sides and face and it gains more of the bubble foam around its neck and down the back. It's also a bit bulkier. It uses its hind legs a lot and has kicking attacks.
  • Bunnelby evolves into a Ground/Dark type rabbit that is larger and much rounder. Its color scheme is reversed, with the dark brown now being the prominent color. It can be found in caves. It is useful because you can get it early in the game and use it to evolve Pancham into Pangoro.
  • Helioptile has an evolution. It is bipedal with a second yellow triangle on its face. Its ears become more jagged and it looks meaner. On its back are what look like spikes with jagged parts at the very top. It can learn a new attack called Thunder Roll, where it rolls up like a wheel and strikes the opponent.
  • Reconfirmation that Meowstic has a pre-evolution named Espurr. There is no gender differentiation until it evolves. It is mostly white, similar to the female version, with cuter eyes and a single puffy tail. It has a little patch of fur under its head (similar to its evolutions). The fur is dark blueish with little tufts of white in it.
  • Other Pokemon that are now Fairy-type: the Chansey evolution line, Dunsparce, the Clefairy line, and Togepi's line.
  • Fairy Dust is a new move that will randomly cause either Paralysis, Poison, Sleep, or Burn.
  • Like Magneton, Wailmer is part of one of the Super Training Facility games.
  • Team Flare makes an appearance right at the beginning of the game. On the TV in your house, one of its members talks about fashion and how your Pokemon should match your style. Team Flare's signature music has an eerie accordion sound to it in the opening sequence.
  • The outfit your character wears at the start is colored to match what you've set as your favorite color in your 3DS settings. It can be changed easily though.
  • The opening cinematic is in 3D. (Have to mention this since most of the game isn't in stereoscopic 3D. :p) It starts off with Yveltal's cry, which wakes you up. You sit up in your bed. It then pans and there is a shot of your city. Yveltal's shadow goes over it. After that there is some other shots of your town. You seem amazed that you saw Yveltal. It then shows generic in-game shots like you entering a forest with your friends, selecting your starter, running through a cave, etc. After that it shows Sycamore welcoming you. You are standing outside of his lab at the time, then he takes you inside. It then shows him showing you three Poke Balls which leads into a transformation video where it shows all three Kanto starters evolving to their final forms, and then the three of them Mega Evolving. It's a really cool cinematic. The video ends with Yveltal flying with the sun behind him, leading in to the title screen. Team Flare is also shown at some point in the sequence.
  • On the title screen you can use the analog joystick on your 3DS to change the angle at which you see Xerneas/Yveltal.

IGN.com and Jeux Video have revealed the evolution of Amaura, named Aurorus, and the evolution of Tyrunt, named Tyrantrum. Aurorus can learn a new Ice-type move called Freeze Dry (*cough*), which can freeze the opponent and is also super effective against Water-type Pokemon.

According to Nintendo World, after capturing a Pokemon, the Pokemon you used to battle it will now receive experience points!

An interview between Gamefreak and gaming website Polygon has revealed that Pokemon introduced in X and Y will not have Mega Evolutions. (If Mega Evolutions are some sort of artificial thing introduced by Team Flare that they have to work on over time, maybe that's why? /my random fan theory)

Update (11:30 AM): With thanks to KurowaSan for the translation, an interview with Eurogamer has revealed that there will be a greater variety of wild Pokemon in the grass. The idea is that each time you enter tall grass, they want you to find a different Pokemon. Also, depending on the color of the flowers in the tall grass, the ratio of the Pokemon encounters and their types are different. Masuda also stated that there might be an easier way to obtain Shiny Pokemon, while Yoshida said that they wanted to make a Shiny Pokemon's color stand out more.
