    According to an earlier rumor by the guy, by being a bird with fists. Yep.

    Some of those names are completely silly. They have some good puns mixed in, but they just don't remind me of the Gamefreak style. (Oregan? Huevolk? Flyby'nyte? And oh gods the Bubbaboom.)

    Chorustar - Starmie Evo????
    Eyedol - Claydol Evo????

    Maniackle (Ghost/Steel) - This I want to see.

    Although what that poster claims seems to be farfetch'd to me, some "supposed to be" Pokemon descriptions are appealing to my eyes. Especially the Bug/Ice and Fire/Ice pokemon.

    Yeah, some of these names totally seem like something GF would do, but some of them don't quite seem their style.

    And really, if you have a pokemon named hooklyne, how do you not give it an evo named Synker?

    If nothing else, if these turn out to be fake, there's actually a lot of ideas in his rumors that I've liked, and he's dispensed them in a way that's been entertaining/thought out. Sorta strange to call a hoax like this (if it is one) "fun," but it kind of is.

    I could stomach all the horrible stuff on that list(Bubbaboom...) just to have that ice raptor with an owl mask. Make it so, Gamefreak.

    With a Wat-shaped central shaft! The Hindu Anchor Pokemon!

    Levitate doesn't seem quite right for an anchor. Suction Cups or similar would make a bit more sense.

    I only hope to see priority on Heracross that is actually viable.

    Angry bird (Not as in the game, but a rust-red bird that looks angry)
    Superhero with cape
    Macho guy covered in clouds
    Rawk Hawk type thing
    Rooster
    Turkey

    So many things could work.

    EDIT:
    Fighting cocks, as stated below, as well.

    If Yveltal is really ghost flying, I guess we'll have a new SR weak spinblocker. And new heracross and pinsir pre-evos? This means we will have two powerful little cup pokemon.

    Anyone else hope Xerneas and Yveltal have non-über like stats (Think Zapdos' stats)? These are the best looking version mascots since RSE, and I wanna use them in standard.

    They're cover legends, I think it's a safe bet that they'll have an uber tier BST.

    I'd love to see them have unique abilities (Teravolt and Turboblaze don't count). I don't just want to see PRESSURE on everything.

    With so many things having 680-ish BST now, and so much other powerful stuff, I wonder if we couldn't see an OU with lots of them present.

    I hope that Giritina-O gets a major upgrade. If Giritina-O can use another item then griesous Orb, he would definetly be the best spinblocker in ubers. Yveltal (if it is a ghost type), Giritina-A and arceus may give it stiff competion, but imagine life orb Giritina-O or choice scarf Giritina-o.
    On the contrary, I wonder how we wil get Kyurem-W and Kyurem-B if the DNA splicers aren't present.

    I would quite like to believe some of them, but the main reason I can't is this:

    And this:

    Incidentally, the above was a fantastic Nintendo game!

    To do this, they would need to make an additional item that is Gracidea-esque to change its forms. The Griseous Orb stands as a counterpart to the Adamant and Lustrous Orbs, boosting Giratina's Ghost/Dragon attacks.

    That said, I think LO Giratina-O would be far superior to Scarf. It has the SE coverage and priority to make use of LO, but is too weak to use Scarf effectively. That is better left to Dialga or Kyogre.

    Also, the rumors just became that much less likely with some of these names. Seriously, Houndoomed? Also Starthree would have been leagues better than Chorustar.

    I'm pretty sure without it's shell, Clampearl and Cloyster are just balls of nothing

    Obligatory laugh at the toliet pokemon because I thought of that name first

    Or Braviary. I seriously thought it was before they released its type.

    If it loses its shell, Cloyster evolves into Gastly, though this isn't possible in the games.

    I've always partial to Starus or Starthem. (Perhaps even Starall.) It's a little weird that there seem to be entirely new Pokemon families between the new evolutions: gen4 had them all clustered pretty tightly. Between 'Yamazuna' and 'Banacopia', there's a new ground/fighting type.

    Yamazuna is a strange name, I think. Yama comes from mountain, just like in Hariyama, but I can't find anything in my dictionaries pronounced 'zuna' for a clean portmanteau. It must be some kind of inscrutable pun.

    And Gastly is directly after Cloyster in the Pokedex. As a kid, this and them both being black spheres with an evil face made me think Gastly and Cloyster were somehow related.

    Flyby'nyte might be the rumoured Farfetch'd evo.

    But Houndoomed? Not Helldoom? Jeez.

    That was another person.
