A wave of CoroCoro information and scans have arrived, showing us new Pokemon, types and attacks of a couple of already-known Pokemon, the evil team of this region, and more!
What we currently know:
- Xerneas is a pure Fairy-Type & Yveltal is a Dark/Flying type.
- Xerneas is known as the Life Pokemon and Yveltal is known as the Destruction Pokemon (seems like this generation is focusing on themes of life and death).
- Both Xerneas and Yveltal have type-powering moves. Xerneas knows Fairy Aura which improves the power of Fairy type moves, while Yveltal knows Dark Aura which improves the power of Dark type moves.
- Xerneas and Yveltal also have exclusive moves. Xerneas has an attack called Geomancy, which shows multi-colored beams emanating from the ground and slowly moving out through the field. Yveltal, on the other hand, knows a move known as Oblivion Wing, where it shoots a red beam to the opponent Pokemon.
Version X: Clauncher & Peropuff
Version Y: Skrelp & Shushupu
Professors, Gym Leaders & more!
The professor is a male and goes by the name of Sycamore. Evil team for this region goes by the name “Team Flare (or possibly Flair).” They’re goal is to make as much money as they can. The Japanese names of two gym leaders are known: Clemont (has mechanical arms/devices) (sister’s name is Bonnie) & Grant Honedge knows the ability No Guard. The Pokemon Search System (PSS) includes new features, such as Holo Caster, which provides news regarding battles and events on the Global Trade Station. Wonder Trade is another “exciting trade” function that lets you trade Pokemon without knowing what you’ll receive back. The other known function is the Happy Sign which tells you about the feelings and actions of your friends. Special O Powers gives the player the ability to use/receive from different players.
Update: Photo Spots gives the player the ability to take pictures of their game character at different areas in the game.
