    Sooo if you saw an empty suit of armour start walking, you wouldn't think ghost? Only if it started flying.

    There's a loop under a part of the keychain that makes it look almost like a snake with bunny ears to me. I'd love to say Dunsparce evo but that's not gonna happen (yet at least).

    @R_N: I can't tell whether or not you're kidding. On one hand, Cofagrigus can levitate and Golurk can fly. On the other, you didn't use the obvious examples of Gengar and Drifblim, who levitate and fly all the time, respectively.

    Ninja edit: Holy crap, CoroCoro has busy cover art. Should be fun to see what's inside, if that's real!

    And Serebii Joe put it up too, which means it's like 99% likely to be real.

    Seems pretty legit to me. Hopefully we'll get to see the contents soon.

    Is this the next CoroCoro?

    EDIT: Apparently so!

    Close up:
    [​IMG]

    EDIT EDIT:
    I also see Xerneas, Chespin, Fennekin and Yveltal! Froakie's probably behind something near the bottom too. Please more scans!

    How long does it take to flip in through the magazine and get more scans? Really?

    The editors at Bulbagarden, Serebii, WPM, PJ, and whoever else are all likely checking the email's they're getting any scans from and conferring with each other to check for legitimacy. The source is 2chan, but this kind of stuff is really hard to bullshit. All we can do is wait and see. Us smart nerds with nothing better to do on a Monday night (oh wait, nothing ever happens on a Monday night) will be up until four in the morning waiting for WPM to post his thoughts.

    It looks kinda like a cherub...maybe there will be an area similar to a gothic church in-game where you could catch it.

    If it ends up being flying, I pray that it gets Hurricane or Brave Bird or even both depending on it's stats, I'd be fine with Air Slash too.

    I see the starters and legends. I'm going to bet something.

    They're either there to:
    A) Represent the game
    OR (the one I hope for)
    B) They'll be more info on them as well in the magazine

    Maybe legend typing? Please?

    Either that or starter height/weight.

    So, let me show you some statistics:
    List of ghost pokemon that can fly (via flying type or levitate) and by fly I mean evade ground moves naturally.
    Show Hide

    Gastly
    Haunter
    Gengar
    Misdreavus
    Mismagius
    Duskull
    Drifloon
    Drifblim
    Rotom


    List of ghost grounded ghost pokemon:
    Show Hide

    Shedinja (evades through wonderguard, not flight)
    Sableye
    Shuppet
    Banette
    Dusclops
    Dusknoir
    Spiritomb
    Froslass
    Giratina
    Yamask
    Cofagrigus
    Frillish
    Jellicent
    Golett
    Golurk


    So we could say even though levitate is an ability found on ghost pokemon, it's nowhere close of representing the type, I thought of Heatproof because knights who were to slay dragons wore magic armors who were to resist the intense heat from a dragon's breath, which is kinda more likely to happen than your point (even though I do respect it), Levitate is mostly found on Psychic pokes. also, I can actually tell you an ability only possessed by Ghost type pokemon, and that would be Cursed body, so I think for a haunted armor Cursed body/Heatproof as possible abilities would make the most sense.
    That being said, can't wait to see the corocoro info, hope we get more than a few bits of info (even though I doubt it)

    Update (7:38 PM): The Pokemon is named Ninfia

    They don't end Eeveelutions in "eon" in Japan too, right? Otherwise this is not an eeveelution.

    EDIT:
    WAIT
    Leafeon - Japanese Leafia
    Glaceon - Japanese Glacia

    THIS IS A NEW EEVEELUTION

    I think its the generic early dog for this gen, possibly loosely based off the basque shepherd.

    They don't have a unified naming scheme in Japanese (other than simple cute names). Though the latter two have had their names end in "ia." Anything's possible, but it doesn't look like an Eeveelution.

    EDIT:
    Yet Umbreon is Blacky, and Flareon is Booster. Only those two have that scheme.

    If it's called Ninfia, I'd dare say it's gen6's pixie, nymphs in greek mythology are lesser goddesses bound to nature in some way. If it's to have some sort of rival, I'd call for a satyr pokemon.

    Edit: Nvm, just read the update, if it's eeveelution, i'd call flying (Nimbus) and Nimbeon for EN name.
