Update with English information

After the information we received yesterday on the Mega-Evolutions for Pokemon; we have now received a video and the main site has updated with more information.

As usual; we shall start with the new pokemon and their names. 

First up with have Dedenne; which keeps its japanese name, much like Pikachu, Emolga and Pachirisu. It is a electric/fairy type and it is known as the Antenna pokemon. 

The official website states that it uses its antenna to emit radio waves, so it can communicate long distances. 

It has the new ability cheek pouches; that only uses the berry and gives the benefits of it; but it also recovers it HP too. 

It has a new move called nuzzle; that paralysis the enemy as well as doing damage! 

Next up we have Skiddo; a play on Kid (baby goat); it has an interesting description with it; stating that it may have been the first pokemon to live beside humans. Like Gogoat, the player will be able to ride it. 

It also states that Skiddo can feel its riders emotions, through the grip of its horns. 

The last of the new Pokemon is Bunnelby; like Dedenne, it has the ability Cheek Pouch; and uses its shovel shaped ears to dig through the ground; so this normal type pokemon have go to Normal/Ground type. Or Normal/Fighting; as it also states, its ears are strong enough to chop through thick tree roots. 

Some more information on Mega-Evolutions

The Torchic distribution is going to be worldwide; and is the only possible way of getting the special item needed for Blaziken's Mega-Evolution

Mega-Evolutions are only possible during battle

Not all Pokemon will be getting a Mega-Evolution 

All Mega-Evolutions will have stat increases

They all keep the Mega in front of their names. 

The gym leader revealed yesterday; is called Korinna, she is the gym leader of Shalour City; which is known for its great seaside views. It is unknown what type of gym she is but she does know mysteries behind the Mega-Evolutions. 

Lastly; something thats only really been hinted at; they have finally revealed the process of Super Training. This information was taken from the main site. 

There are different methods of this; Regimens are like sports it appears; the example they use is like football; where the player must get the ball into their opponents goal. 

The main thing that is implied here is that it is an easier way to check your ev's by doing these super training exercises.

Pokemon X and Y Mega News

Wow; they weren't kidding when they said they had the scoop of the century

First up lets cover three new pokemon

From left to right we have 

Meekuru: It is the pre-evolution of Gogoat and is a pure grass type
Horubii: It is a normal type rabbit pokemon with the ability Pickup or a new ability called Cheek pouches
Dedenne: Most likely the pikachu clone of this game; it is super adorable though! It is electric/fairy type and has the same abilities as Horubii

Now onto the strange new concept they have introduced


Along with the new Mewtwo forme; there are 5 other pokemon that get this Mega-Evolutions, each gets a new ability and some even get a retyping. 

First up is Mawile; with the Huge Power ability and the now confirmed Steel/Fairy typing 

Next Mewtwo has the ability Insomniac and Ampharos is Electric/Dragon with the ability Mold Breaker 

Blaziken gets its dream world ability of Speed Boost, Lucario gets the ability Adaptability and Absol gets Magic Bounce. 

Apparently they can only be accessed during battle and a Torchic will be available for download as an event; holding an item called 'Blaziken Knight' which is a type of mega stone. 

A new gym leader has been shown; her type is not yet clear but her helmet is sort of skull like, so maybe they have finally put a dark gym leader in! She is called Koruni and holds the key to mega evolutions 

So some pretty interesting stuff; what do people think?
