Fortunately, that is not true:
It's in the Archive. Deglas managed to transcribe it before it got deleted. I'm working on the list of alleged new Pokémon now. Contributions to the rumour archive would be very welcome.
Also, concerning this list: Mr. XY has really raised the stakes for himself now. The first set of posts could manage to stretch its credibility, even if something not fitting his "leaks" was posted. After all, that stuff could come at a later date. Even as more and more kept piling up, not in accordance with what he posted, he could still keep the lie for a while, stating "they have pushed back the announcement date of the Pokémon I talked about, since they've decided to reveal some others instead." He could keep trolling us until mid-July or so.
However, with a full list of names, anything
official would debunk or confirm what he says. One single name revealed, and his credibility would be busted, or confirmed. Perhaps he is a troll, and wanted a short and intense discussion of his stuff instead of a long-lived one. Perhaps he is legit, and posted everything he got to sound credible. Either way, once GameFreak announces something, his intentions will be pretty clear.
By the way, what did that blanked-out board on Pokémon Smash turn out to be?
EDIT: Another nail in the potential coffin for this list: It says two of the Pokémon are Flying/Fighting. No dual-typed Flying Pokémon have EVER had Flying as their primary type (save for one in the Pokéstar studios).
EDIT 2: Okay, I transcribed the entire list of "leaked" Pokémon to text, it can be seen in the link above. When writing, I noticed there were hardly ANY single-type Pokémon, and extremely few Dual types we've even had before. It seems to be made up of mostly dual-typed Pokémon with previously unseen type combinations. As I've said before, it looks awfully lot like a "competitive player's wish list", fullfilling one desire of ours after another. In other words, too good to be true. Still, if it's a fake, it's a very elaborate one we should save to remind us in the future how legit things can look while still being fake. Perhaps it'll serve as a "cold shower" when the seventh gen is announced and the rumours start spreading.
