    Nope. There was an obvious trend with jynx electabuzz and magmar. Not today, but originally. All three got preevolutions in g/s/c. This in some ways shows some sort of connection due to the fact that they are the few pokemon to get pre evolutions in gen 2.
    Igglybuff/Cleffa are counterparts and their species always have been. Tyrouge brought two counterparts into one species. Pichu was the required baby form of their mascot. Of everything, the only place smoochum belongs is alongside electkid and magby, as it 1. has no other reasons why it would be there (there are other things that needed baby evos *glares at kanghaskhan, onix*)
    and 2. Why would something so inaccessable (in r/b/y, its only obtainable through in-game trade) even be of much importance to get a preevolution unless it had some connections?
    My guess is they were going to give it a far more beautiful evolution in gen 4, but switched out for either rhyperior or frosslass because they couldn't think of a way to fit it in with the others. So, perhaps it will become paired with another pokemon such as mr.mime this gen. Or maybe mr.mime and sudowoodo.

    Well, Gen V was fairly lacking in pokemon that can be Rule 34'd...


    Though, it looks better with its eyes closed

    Well it depends on exactly how much control it has over those ribbons.

    So this pic wasn't as far off as I originally thought since the ribbons aren't cosmetic.

    In hindsight Sylveon has to have some control over its ribbons, if they were just passively hanging down it would trip on them all the time!

    What animals haven't been made into Pokémon yet? I'm hoping for:
    Bombardier beetle, Bug/Fire
    Cone snail, Poison/Psychic
    Guitarfish, Water/Electric
    Mimic octopus, Water/--- (second type preferably ghost, dark, or psychic)
    Narwhal or Orca, Ice/Fighting
    Pistol shrimp, Water/Fire
    Thorny dragon, Dragon/Grass or Rock
    Water Bear, Bug/Water
    Vinegaroon, Bug/Dark

    and a Cordyceps fungi, Dark/Psychic.

    New animal representations and new type combinations would be great.

    Well, I guess that trailer explains how genesect can fly. I remember hearing something about the title being "extreme speed genesect"...is this true? Could there possibly be some kind of even genesect getting released? It looked like one of the genesect was faster than the others, but at the same time surrounded by flames. Could this be either extremespeed or flame charge? Then again, it's not unlike pokemon to completely change what moves are like for the anime.

    By the very definition of Rule 34 (and by extension, Rule 35), everything can and will be Rule 34'd. No exceptions!

    Also, Katakiri, those pics are absolutely hilarious.

    ---

    Anyway, I'm just about done with the Sylveon discussion, so I'm just going to say that for X/Y, I want to see a larger addition of Ghost-types, and not just for competitive. I've been inactive over the past few weeks so I'm not sure if this was already brought up, so I apologize if it has been. Ghost is the least common type with only 27 Pokemon, and very few of them are any good. I'd just like to see more good Ghost-types; not just for more spinblockers in competitive, but I'd also like to see a good in-game Ghost that doesn't require trading to be fully evolved. We really don't have many good in-game Ghosts, and I'd like to see that changed. Not expecting it to happen, but it would be nice.

    Well at the very least this debunks the latest rumor that fully detailed the next corocoro.

    So that's one down.

    Not to make a fuss but I noticed something odd.

    [​IMG]

    There's a Sableye is Ash's pose.
    This wouldn't mean much normally, just a Pokemon he might catch between now & the movie release, but its a Pokemon not found in Unova in BW2 (It was post-game BW1) and it pairs up with another Pokemon he got: Aipom. Aipom was a Pokemon not found in the region they were traveling (and very late at that, having almost no battling skill compared to his team of powerhouses) and he caught is almost 4 months before Gen 4 was released and before we even knew about Ambipom.

    The Genesect movie is confirmed that it will tie in with the current anime plot, so unless a wild Sableye is super-important to the plot of this movie, it is with the group.

    It could mean nothing so take this with a grain of salt but it's likely that Sableye might just be there to evolve later on in Gen 6 like Aipom did in Gen 4. Even their BSTs are very close to each other (and both equally horrible with 360 & 380 each.)

    I'm guessing the movie is going to have an event mon. A shiny genesect with extremespeed seems like the possible fit. Knowing GF it's probably going to be nature locked. -.- ES would be a great addition to the CB set.

    Edit: @above nice catch. =o Sableye would be such a menace in LC and an evo would probably be amazing in ou(if it retains prankster).

    +20 HP +30 ATK +11 Def +20 SpA +11 SpD +30 Spe This is how much aipom gained when evolving into ambipom, now if we apply those stats to sableye...

    Its stats would be 70 HP / 105 Atk / 86 Def / 85 SpA / 76 SpD / 80 Spe

    Not bad... This is just assuming there's a direct correlation. =P

    Yeah Sableye was brought up when the calendar (?) version of that poster was in a magazine.

    It'd be odd to suddenly give him a Sabeleye for NOW since he didn't even catch an old Pokemon for BW Season 2, so it being the new Aipom isn't out of the question.

    e: Serebii caught this
    Kind of a random Pokemon to make important here

    The Corocoro scan rumor says...
    From the translation on Serebii...

    I haven't found anything to disprove this rumor yet (which I personally believe is the most well-crafted, even if it is fake). Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I find it funny how people have been stating that some rumored names are "unbelievable" such as houndoomed (which I still find hard to believe) and too overall dumb, and yet the name of the location of the new movie:

    New Tork City

    There's several things (Mewtwo specifically protecting the group, which he wouldn't do if he still hated humans; the area where the short takes place is not anywhere near the city) but the big thing is that the rumor claimed
    When it is in fact New Tork City

    Maybe the city has a dumb name, but that's from a series with names like 'Hop Hop Hop town'. The anime has even referenced the Minnesota Vikings. Not quite the same as the games.

    True, but if I posted a fake rumor saying the name of the new region, was, say, Brance, no one would believe me. And I doubt anyone, had there been a leak this was called such a simple switch as New Tork city, would have even considered it.

    It's just interesting how, after all of our skepticism on naming, they give us this curveball.

    My bad! Looks like the rumor wasn't so true after all.

    EDIT: And yeah, New Tork City has caused me to lower my standards for Pokemon in naming...

    It's an obvious pun though. Torcs are neck rings common across Europe in the Bronze and Iron ages.

    Not really. Remember:
    There are no gen 6 pokemon in here. There are in the SHORT, but not the actual movie. I'm assuming this is still somewhere in Unova, where Iris and Cilan are as well. Which is based off of New York. In a place based off of New York City.

    We're not in "Europokia" (my placeholder name for the new region) yet, so I doubt their on their way to making Europe puns.

    I find it SO funny that after all these years, just now theyre thinking of connecting past seasons with current ones. Too bad its kinda too late to undo the damage but at least we will be getting more storyline based movies and episodes instead of fillers. That make me want to watch the gen 6 anime.

    By virtue of Ash using older Pokemon, along with various character cameos, they have ALWAYS done this.
