Pokemon X and Y - Gen VI for the 3DS (SPOILER WARNING):

Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
absolclaw: Quilladin did get taller. You just can't tell because it got significantly wider.

They seem to be going with a medieval theme with the starters. Quilladin = quill + paladin and Frogadier = Frog + cavalier?

Goodness, you can just tell the anime will screw up the Pokemon sizes already, especially poor Quilladin.
My movie made $28 billion. Where's my share.
I still see the Fighter/Mage/Thief motif, too - while its name doesn't evoke it, Frogadier's jumping abilities and its stance feel very ninja like to me. And also looks like it will be the fastest of the three.

Apparently, if you don't regularly groom the poodle, its fur grows back to being shaggy again. If the thing is actually any good in battle (and with an ability like that, it might well be), that could be a fun little mechanic.

Mega Pokemon

Mega Garchomp has higher Attack and Special Attack, but lower Speed.

You can make PR videos at the salons.

Global Link

Also, it seems they fixed Magnazone showing up as female in the Pokemon Bank picture.

[up][up] Gimmick Pokemon are rarely ever good, I don't see why the poodle would be any different.

I am glad there's customization too though. I wonder how you'll get clothes - reward from contests/gym thingos, or just buy em someplace? It'd be pretty funny to cosplay the gym leaders too.

Chespin/Quilladin is definitely gonna have good HP, high Def/Sp Def, good Attack, and so-so Sp Atk and Speed.

Fennekin/Braixen will probably have an Alakazam/Gardevoir-esque stat distribution.

Froakie/Frogadier will have Snivy-like distribution I reckon.

[up]Which isn't bad if it's not held back by Snivy-like movepool shallowness.

 18085 absolclaw, Fri, 13th Sep '13 6:32:30 AM from Castelia City
I think Quilladin will have strong Defence, maybe weak special defence in comparison. Braixen will obviously be special attack and I think Frogadier will mostly be speed, with little defence if any.

Frogadier is totally a Dragoon

[up] don't jinx it :O

Also, are these PR videos basically customized trainer intros for battle, or are they something else entirely? And is this the last big news dump until game release ;_;

Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
Brigadier works way better, yes.

Braixen is probably "braise" + "vixen". It helps that it's (well, can be) a literal vixen.

I'm keeping my Furfrou unkempt.

Also, Water types generally have better move pools than Grass types. If it's got decent Sp Atk Frogadier could use Surf/Ice Beam well, and does have Dark moves...

Disconnecting from PGL battles now counts as a loss.

I wonder how long it will take once the game is released for fan sites to have images of all the new Pokemon. I mean, with sprites I'd assume it's 10x easier.

Actually no, how long does it usually take for the Sugimori art to release?

That male Team Flare admin looks creepy, like I can totally picture those gloves being splattered with blood.

Whoever came up with the name "Tyrunt" deserves a gold star.

[up] Okay cool thanks. I was worried it might be 30, so that's a relief.

Also yeah, the guy in Team Flare is kind of creepy. Also, apparently everyone on Team Flare ordered Oculus Rift.

It's not so much that models are harder than sprites. It's that I don't think they'll be able to break the game to get the data files this time.

I think Bryony is my favourite Flare admin.

Just noticed Quilladin has Mud Shot to deal with Braixen, and Frogadier has Bounce to deal with Quilladin.

So therefore, Braixen will get an Electric type move and will be Fire/Electricwild mass guess

Hyuhn?!
If Froakie's line has stats like the Snivy line, that'll be cool. Just as long as he doesn't have a build like 4543773 Speed and 2 in everything else. Snivy's line could actually take an dish out a few hits.

Oh...Quilladin's flavor text on the official site! waii

Also, in Braixen's info section, I guess they kind of revealed that Vivillon has high Sp. Defense when they described Psyshock.

I love all the new situational immunities, too. Even without altering the type chart for them, those are some really useful buffs.

There's a new section on Mega Evolution on the site, and there's a line on the Japanese site I don't see on the English site. It says, "There are other trainers in the Kalos region who wear Key Stones in other ways than the main character's bracelet." Which would seem to confirm for sure that NPC's can also mega evolve their Pokemon.

Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
Well I would hope so. Where's the strategy if you never have to face it yourself?
