New info has been revealed from CoroCoro magazine.

http://www.serebii.net/index2.shtml

  • The stage 2 evolutions of the new starters have been revealed. Pure grass, fire, and water, but Fennekin learns Psycho Cut, supporting the rumor that the stage 3 evos will be grass/dark, fire/psychic, water/fighting.

  • The two new fossilmon have been revealed. They are a rock/dragon t-rex and a rock/ice diplodocus or other long-necked dinosaur. The t-rex's ability is "hard jaw," which boosts the power of biting attacks like crunch or fire/ice/thunder fang. The diplodocus' ability is "freeze skin," which boosts the power of ice-type moves, and changes the typing of its normal-type moves to ice-type.

  • Straight up new Pokemon have been revealed. The first is a fluffy dog-like pokemon, normal-type. It has the ability "Fur Coat," which reduces incoming physical damage. You can also customize its appearance in some way. I bet it's hairstyles.

  • The second is a psychic-type cat whose movepool changes depending on gender. The male is geared more toward a support role, and the female for an attack role.

  • The second form of Mega Mewtwo has been revealed. It is psychic/fighting, and has "steadfast" as its ability. The two forms are exclusive to either version, this new one appearing in X, the older one appearing in Y.

  • Mega Garchomp. It's ability's Sandforce. Didn't show much else.

  • The new Type Effectiveness Chart has been revealed! Fairy is super-effective against dragon, dark, and fighting, and not very effective against fire, poison, or steel. It is weak to poison and steel, but resists fighting, dark, and bug.

  • You can change your character's clothes and hair.

Discussion time! Chespin looks like a doofus.

Damn your right, he is one smary looking sob.

Fuck! You posted this as I was editing mine! I duped!

But lol anyway I like Mega Mewtwo X. Fennekin's evolved form looks stupid as shit.

I am still leaning Fennekin, but all of these middle foms aren't great. HOPEFULLY the third's improve.

@turtlebird95: I quick attacked that shit. I also didn't want to deal with the pictures through the mobile site.

I'm not sure what starter I'm gonna choose now. I was all gung ho for chespin, but I didn't think he'd turn into an actual chestnut. I think the other two look great. Froakie looks to be heading toward a suave catburglar, and fennekin toward a femme fatale. Both are fitting, with the location basically being Poke-France. Leaning a bit more toward fennekin now.

@itwongo: Hope the final evolution is better. Otherwise you could always just press B every time he tries to evolve. Just think when you walk into the Elite Four with your level 65 Chespin.

Looking at the type chart again, steel is no longer resistant to ghost or dark attacks.

No confirmation of Mega Feraligatr? GET FUCKED.

*ahem*

As a person that's mildly interested in in X/Y, it's good to see that they're making some nice decisions. Character customization (as limited as it may be) is a huge one for me.

Man, modern pokemon look so stupid. At least the fire starter doesn't evolve into Fire/Fighting for the 4th time in a row.

I'm not going to read that as I like discovering these things for myself and this is the first Pokemon game in a good 10 or so years that I have had any interest in let alone been excited for. Just wanted to say that it seems like there's a lot of hype around this game as every day I check the forums there seems to be a new thread of some sort with people chatting about it.

I was leaning toward Fennekin and then they made it a furry. Great. At least it isn't as stupid as fucking Oshawott evolving into a quadruped.

Thoughts!:

  • Yes, just what Pokemon needed, more cat Pokemon! It's neat that it has its own gimmick at least.
  • X's Mega Mewtwo looks a bit better then Y's ass-on-head form so I guess I sort of have a reason to pick Pokemon X now.
  • Froakie still seems like the best starter, all's good.
  • Fennekin's evolution looks really weird, like you put its oversized head on a different body.
  • Chespin is still just stoked to be here.
  • Bug-Pokemon remain the underdogs.

@arbitrarywater: you act like gen 1 didn't have its own problems.

What does that have to do with these Gen 6 pokeymanz looking really dumb?

#17 Posted by Itwongo (1119 posts) -

@arbitrarywater: sorry, I thought that by using "modern" you were implying all old Pokemon lacked flaw.

#18 Posted by Itwongo (1119 posts) -

More changes regarding types have been announced; Ghost types are no longer affected by moves that prevent fleeing such as Mean Look. Grass Pokémon can't be seeded or affected by moves such as SleepPowder or Stun Spore. Electric types can no longer be Paralysed

@itwongo: The last one is especially big for the combat. Paralysis and Confusion are the two most frustrating effects in the game, for me. "JUST HIT HIM PLEASE OH MY GOD."

I like Fennekin's, Chespin's is kinda weird. Froakie's is ok.

Since I had that smug-ass grass snake last time, I guess I should get the smug-ass blue frog this time.

I just wish that serbii.net would update their info for the X/Y Pokedex.
