With the recent announcement of information from CoroCoro; a lot of information has come to light, as well as the English information as well!
First off lets start with the new trailer; it shows us a lot of new stuff like the main city of the game that we shall go into in a minute. It also gives us a look at battles a bit more and shows us some moves for the starters; as well as quick gameplay of the new pokemon. It also shows we can interact with the environment and sit down on benches and things.
|The Kalos Region|
Now for the new pokemon
The Panda Pokemon Yancham; has been confirmed to be called Pancham; a mix of Panda and cham or derived from Punch'am. Its new move is called Parting Shot; which lowers the stats of its opponent but switches out the user.
Next we have the Robin Pokemon Yayakoma; which has been confirmed to be called Fletchling; a mix of Fletch and Hatching or Hatchling. As stated the other day it knows Flame Charge; so this could mean it might turn into a Fire/Flying type.
Now we have the Lizard Pokemon Elekiteru; which has been confirmed to be called Helioptile; A mix of Helios and Reptile. Its new move has been named Parabolic Charge; which heals the user and damages the enemy.
Lastly we have the Goat Pokemon Gogoat; this Pokemons name is the same in English and Japanese so nothing has changed there. It uses Horn Leech.
As for the starters; it was shown what moves they acquire early on in their development.
Chespin has been shown at level 5 with the moves Tackle, Growl and Vine Whip, at level 8 he gets access to Rollout
Fennekin has been shown at level 5 with the moves Scratch, Tail Whip and Ember; at level 8 (although shown at 11) he gets access to Howl
Froakie was shown at level 8 already and has access to Pound, Growl, Bubble and Quick Attack.
What is interesting to note is that the first type move starters usually get is around level 6-8; but these have them at level 5 already. So this either means that the Starters are given to the player at level 1 or that these moves are automatically available on the starting Pokemon.
We got a few pictures showing the option to customise the players looks; apparently its confirmed that accessories and other clothes can be gotten throughout the game but so far its only shown the images of different skin colour etc.
|Female trainer options|
Another new feature; which whilst not game breaking, it is new to the Pokemon main games, you can now move diagonally!
Finally; we got a glimpse at the Box Arts for the games as well; and they are looking superb! Roll on October! Because these games are going to be awesome.
