English information

As with always when CoroCoro leaks; the english info of the pokemon comes out a few days later. 

First up the starter evolutions 

The grass starter Chespin, evolves into Quilladin; Quill + Paladin, it states that when Chespin evolves, the spikes on its body grow sturdier; despite its prickly appearance, Qulladin is considered a gentle pokemon that avoids battle. 

It uses its hard shell to repel attacks and strike back with its pointed spines; it is the spiny armour pokemon and like all grass starters it has the ability Overgrow. 

The fire starter Fennekin; evolves into Braixen, it states that once Fennekin evolves into Braixen, it no longer eats branches; but it still keeps a tree branch in its tail; which seems to calm the pokemon

Braixen will occasionally wield the branch in battle and use friction to set it on fire; it is the fox pokemon and has the ability Blaze like all fire starters. 

The water starter Froakie; evolves in Frogadier, Frog + Grenadier; it states Frogadier evolves from Froakie, and when it does, its jumping skill improves. In battle; Frogadier confounds its opponents by leaping about the ceiling or into trees. 

Frogadier attacks by launching stones wrapped in bubbles at its opponents; it is the Bubble Frog Pokemon and has the ability Torrent like the water starters before it. 

The baby T-rex pokemon is now known as Tyrunt; a play on Tyrant, Tyrannosaur + Runt; it is known as the Royal Heir pokemon and its ability is now Strong Jaw. Like all fossil pokemon, the player must revive it from a Fossil; Tyrunts fossil is the Jaw fossil. 

It is believed that Tyrunt is over one hundred million years old; this Pokemon is known to be a bit selfish and will throw a fit when it doesn't like something.  

Amaura requires the sail fossil in order to revive it; it has the new ability Refrigerate that turns normal moves into ice type moves. Like Tyrunt; Amaura is believed to be one hundred million years old. 

The pokemon Pyroar was shown again today as well; but this time with its female form being shown too. 

The psychic cat pokemon is known as Meowstic; this was the rumoured cat pokemon that was mentioned a while back; it is the constraint pokemon. The male and female forms give different descriptions. 

Male: The organs within Meowstic's ears posses formidable psychic power; so it usually keeps them clamped shut; but when Meowstic is threatened it will lift its ears and release its power. 

Female: This pokemon tends not to show its emotions to others and remains expressionless, but it seems some trainers love the unsocialable air it puts on. 

Last of the new pokemon; Furfrou; a play on Frufrou is known as the Poodle pokemon with the ability Fur Coat. It states the stylish Furfrou can have its appearance changed by grooming. There are number of differents apperances it can take, and the more you groom it, the more styles become available. If you leave Furfrou's style untended for a few days, its fur will grow long and shaggy again, returning to its original look. Keep a regular grooming schedule to maintain Furfrou's style!

Examples of Furfrou's styles.

It learns the move baby-doll eyes; its a new fairy type move, where the user goes first regardless of speed, the move has a chance of lowering the opponents attack stat. 

Here is the new type chart for X/Y incorporating Fairy type changes; what is interesting is the notes that are mentioned at the bottom. 

Fire types cannot be afflicted by burn
Grass types are immune to leech seed, powder and spore moves
Electric types cannot be afflicted with Paralysis 
Ghost types are not affected by moves that prevent Pokemon from fleeing from battle

the others were known prior to this; but these are quite interesting changes they have undertaken 

This new character is called Diantha; she is a famous movie star beloved by everyone in the kalos region. She's also a pokemon trainer who shows a lot of potential. She may even trade Pokemon with you sometime during your adventure. 

Clockwise from lower left: Celosia, Mable, Bryony, Aliana 

These are 4 scientists of Team Flare; all female with the final being a man named Xerosic; they are not merely selfishly looking out for themselves, they appear to have a clear goal in how to change the world. What kind of world do they hope to create? 


In Pokemon X/Y, you'll be able to change your appearance at Boutiques and Salons, where you can change your outfits and hair style. Its not just the clothes but the hat, shoes and accessories too; you can choose a preset style or make your own. There are different boutiques in different cities that have different styles for you. 

Heres an example of the male and female in different clothes, the female also has a different hair style too. 

When the player changes their outfit and hair, the icon on the PSS and PGL will change; this will be shown to the world! 

And lastly we have; Trainer Promotional Videos; after you choose your style, you can go to one and create a video to reflect your style. The Trainer PR vids are 10-second film that feature you and your pokemon, you can choose expressions, poses, backgrounds, music, camera angles and more to create a unique video. You can either make a recommended video or make a video based on your prefernces with every second specially crafted!
