    Maybe Nintendo Direct might have some info? :/ I wouldn't put it past them.

    Let's talk about the starters themselves, minus the Fire/Fighting squabble. What kind of moves do you think they'll have. Considering Chespin's theme, I'd say Needle Arm is a strong possibility.

    I, for one, hope for Bounce for Froakie. It's time we got a frog exploring the froggy habit of jumping. Yes, Politoed learns Bounce too, but considering the amount of frogs in the games, there is far too little hopping around.

    Considering Fennekin is a desert fox, hum... Sand-Attack, Mud-Slap, Dig. Also Sand Veil and Sand Rush as abilities.

    Found on /vp/, take with a grain of salt. It should be noted that it uses no new pictures or anything but that's happened before.

    NEVERMIND, apparently it's from CoroCoro Ichiban.

    ^What would "CoroCoro Ichiban" mean, for us laymen? Does it mean it's a fake, old, or a reputable source?

    It's a distinct, separate magazine. Apparently, this is what the cover was for in the first place, not normal CoroCoro.

    So, I guess hope is still alive?

    I do think that Froakie could turn into an Altaria-like mon that would be Water/Flying or Water/Dragon. Water/Fighting seems to be the logical one here.

    Mr. XY can vanish without a trace when he's proven wrong and nobody will ever be able to identify him anywhere else. His balls are the size of pinheads.

    Is anyone else kind of hoping (albeit with however unlikely it may be) for a return of the "time capsule" system of gen II (updated to work similarly to BW's transfer, but it could work both ways through an independent 3DS app or something).

    It'd be pretty decent, as it'd allow reverse compatibility for Tutor moves and such, which would also allow for a completely new TM list as well.

    Or is the concept simply outdated? Was the thought "why bother with the old games?"

    Is there a point to it, other than trade-backs for the previous meta?

    To stay somewhat on topic, I'm sure streetpass has been discussed, but has Spotpass?

    Or the 3DS's stepcounting feature? Might we see a return of a pokewalker-Esque system?

    Though this is pretty accurate too. From the horse's mouth, no less.

    Aerophoenix, both of those pictures come up as '4chan.org'. Might want to re-upload them if you're planning on sharing something else.

    Call me crazy, but somehow I think they're getting Blaze, Torrent, and Overgrow.

    Most likely he's referring to dream world abilities.

    Providing, of course, the dream world or an equivalent would still exist.

    4chan can do dumb things when linking to their images. They're ones I just made from the NeoGAF thread or pulled from the /vp/thread. I just used imgur so everyone can see them. Nothing super-important, I'm just impatient.

    EDIT: Well, now I just feel silly.

    It'd be nice if Joe didn't play coy all the time

    e: btw, the "various XY Pokemon" was stated on the corocoro website itself

    Somethings I would hope for:

    -Show the actually number damage done.
    -A battle subway with a team of 6. Yes, the battles would take longer, but I think they would be more fun
    -Obviously better AI, like if the mon you bring in is a SE type against the type, it would switch out
