Whoa, so much information this month! English names will be given as soon as they become available
First of all Xerneas and Yveltal are the rumoured types they were said to be; Xerneas is pure Fairy type with ability Fairy Aura; which raises the power of fairy type moves, and a new move called Geo Control. Yveltal is a dark/flying type with the ability Dark Aura; which raises the power of dark type moves, and a new move called Death Wing.
Honedge is briefly shown in the magazine and is confirmed to have the ability No Guard; so it will be weak to both Ground and Fire.
The two Pokemon Clauncher and Skrelp are version exclusive pokemon; Clauncher is exclusive to X, whilst Skrelp is exclusive to Y.
Now onto the new Pokemon
The first is the Aggressive Pokemon; Goronda, it is the evolution of Pancham. It is 2'11 in height and weighs 136kg. It is a Fighting/Dark type, only sharing this with Scraggy and Scrafty. It has the ability Iron Fist and is able to learn Hammer Arm. Goronda has a new method of evolution; but it is not stated what it is.
Next we have the Squid pokemon Maika; this could be the rumoured Malimar, that evolves when the 3DS is turned upside down; however this could have been confused with that it is the rotation pokemon. It is 0.4 in height and weighs 3.5kg. It is a unique Dark/Psychic type pokemon with a move called Turn Over; which reverses stat changes.
Its evolution is the reversal Pokemon Karamenero; it is 1'4 in height and 47kg; it sports the Dark/Psychic type as well. It has the move Hypnosis. Both Maika and Karamenero have either Suction Cups or Contrary as their ability.
Next up is another Y exclusive Pokemon; this is the Perfume Pokemon called Shushup, it is a pure Fairy Type and is 0.2 in height and 0.5kg. It has the ability Healer and also the move Aromatherapy.
The last new Pokemon is the Cotton Candy Pokemon Peroppafu exclusive to X; again it is a pure Fairy type to go with its counter part, it is 0.4 in height and 3.4kg. It has a new ability called Sweet Pale; which stops allies from falling asleep and a new move called Drain Kiss. Although the artwork does not show it; the in game battle shots; show that it does have feet, so its not just a floating piece of candy floss!
Now for the evil team; this team is called either Flair or Flare; but most likely Flair as their goal is all about money.
Two Gym Leaders were shown; the first is Shitoron, who has robot arms coming from his back
The other is Zakuro; who is said to be good at sports. Neither types were confirmed for their gyms.
The professor was also shown in this edition; he is called Purataanu; which may be romanised to Platane; and he will occasionally battle you; so it will be interesting to see what Pokemon he uses.
Lastly some more information was given on the PSS system
- Holocaster; it gives you the latest information on the Global Link without needing access
- Happy Sign; it allows you to see the feelings/actions of your friends
- Special Pass Powers that you receive from friends
- Miracle Trade; an "exciting Trade" with someone across the world
- It also links up to the Global Trade Station
So quite a lot of information issue; October cannot come quick enough.
