    This is awful reasoning considering LITERALLY EVERY OTHER MONTH where people just straight up post full scans of various magazines

    If a new weather were to come out, I'm thinking something like Acid Rain or Polluted Clouds, it could be the poison type version of Sandstream and give poison types a special defense buff, deal passive damage to all non-poison types, and increase poison-type moves by 50%. It would make Tentacruel a god.

    A pattern I've noticed is that there is generally less information regarding the new game in the March edition of CoroCoro, more a focus on the movie, and I don't see why this March would be any different. Regarding the Sylveon type thing by Gamefreak, I don't recall them specifying the next month's issue at all. It was just something general that they would address in the near future, maybe next CoroCoro issue.

    I can imagine there being some penalty for posting scans ahead of the street date. IANAL though.

    (I really wish we'd get another leak soon. Someone's trolling /vp/ with scans of last month's issue of CoroCoro... and they're falling for it.)

    Couldn't they at least release a few more XY screenshots? Goddamn. There is honestly nothing to talk about anymore. And we probably wont get any news, if we do get anything, until next CoroCoro. Unless GameFreak decide to do a more global unveiling using the official Pokemon website? I think that makes sense (But, again, I'm sure the global updates would coincide with CoroCoro anyway).

    How disappointing. Well see you all next time.

    Who wants some more rumors? Pokejungle tweeted that there's a rumor on 2ch stating that Fennekin's evolution's name is Fennel and that it's bipedal with a ghostly appearance.

    It's almost as if they're not marketing this to a bunch of teenagers and up who have above average intelligence and stew in their own anger for months over speculations...

    Sure, there's plenty to talk about!

    I've noticed a pattern in the lack of news. Every time there isn't anything shown in CoroCoro, the fanbase spontaneously starts talking about something else. Maybe those people are Game Freak plants spreading the real information!

    Agreeing 100% with this. The "new types" thing has been speculated to the point where, imo, its getting old. We've had the same 17 types since G / S (over 10 years) and it's not like GameFreak to change the formula. Don't fix what isn't broken. :/

    EDIT: Dammit, ninja'd! -_-

    Anyway, in regards to the Legendaries' typing, they'll probably end up having a completely new dual-type combination. It would be the same as Reshiram and Zekrom's type speculation: many people assumed back then that Zekrom and Reshiram were Dark and Light-types respectively, yet they ended up as Dragon / Electric and Dragon / Fire, which no other Pokemon has type-wise (at least for now). Xerneas and Yveltal are probably following that same path and GameFreak is just trolling us.

    I should have stopped sitting on my ass already and started taking drawing classes, so I could post some ellaborated rumor (with artworks and everything) about how Fennekin is evolving into a Fire/Dragon.


    Because, you know, it is. Stop fooling yourselves with random 2ch rumors, pfft

    I was just posting what pokejungle tweeted, because people might want to know about it, chill out. And to be fair, 2ch rumors do hold more weight than 4chan rumors because they've actually turn out to be true before, but it's still like you're saying you believe in Santa Claus more than the Easter Bunny.

    I swear people in this thread are so bi-polar....

    I didn't take his last sentence as sarcasm, but whatever.

    Another scan leaked, this one is just announcing the next arc in the anime called Pokemon Best Wishes 2 Da!(Dekorora Adventure) It reminds me of the Orange Islands arc.

    Not really sure if it indicates anything new, since I don't keep up on the anime at all.

    There's a Dusknoir, Swoobat, Banette, Gengar, and Jirachi chilling together in the top right, and they're all ghost or psychic type, so that's cool I guess. It's night time and Jirachi's being a shooting star? I guess they all like the night. It'd be helpful if someone who could read Japanese better than I can could translate part of this.

    The label on the part I'm referring to is really excited about Jirachi, that much I can tell. The first three Kanji in the second sentence mean something like 'in 7 days', I think.

    Aha, Serebii has the translations up already anyway.

    translations (open)

    The first details from CoroCoro have begun to come out. With thanks to Sabonea_Masukippa for translation, these images showcase a brand new saga of the anime to follow Episode N after that mini-saga completes and it begins on April 25th. This saga is called Pokémon Best Wishes Season 2 Da! (short for Dekorora Adventure). The Dekorora Islands are an archipelego of islands visited by Ash & Co..
    On May 16th, it is labelled Farewell Oshawott?! The Road to becoming the Hotachi King! and is set on Hotachi Island, where many Oshawott live, but Ash's Oshawott is troubled there. On May 30th, they visit the Mutoro Island where Profesor Oak goes against the Pokémon Rotom, with Professor Oak apparently capturing one. June 26th is labelled "Making a Wish to Jirachi! Seven Days of Miracles" and marks Jirachi's first TV appearance. It is set on Ookina Island. In July, there will be an episode which is currently labelled Mysterious Treasure! Uninhabited Island Adventure! where Eevee and friends will appear on an uninhabited island, Yashi Island.
    Edit @ 04:42; We also have a full image of the movie page from yesterday and it confirms that the movie distribution of Mewtwo runs from June 15th 2013 to September 1st 2013 with tickets being purchasable from April 20th. The Mewtwo comes holding a Custap Berry


    So, 7 days of miracles. That seems about right then, R_N. That escapade on Yashi Island will probably be the first meeting of a 6th gen Pokemon, assuming Sylveon shows up. (Then again, it might not.)

    EDIT: Mewtwo is being released with a Custap Berry! As I recall, that's the first time they'll be available in 5th gen legally. What fun the berry farmers shall have.

    What's that in the middle of the oshawotts? It doesn't look like a dewott to me...more like a meowth in a costume? Either that or its a dewott and I just am terrible at seeing things.

    That's definately meowth. I thought the same thing, but sadly: no new pokemon there. Although if that was a new pokemon, I'd be SORELY dissapointed.


    NEW NEWS FROM SEREBII ON RUMBLE U:
    It will use the NFC on Wii U and figurines will be released to put into the game.

    Custap berries have been available for a while now, thanks to the Dream World tournament berry give aways.

    And now we're on scoop 4 with Pokemon Rumble U.



    Btw, the high res scan of the first scoop (Mewtwo) shows the sticker sheet in the corner. Nothing new, not even different artwork.

    Well, that's even less exciting than I thought it might be. The more Custap the better, I guess.

    Possibly another genius marketing thing by Game Freak with that ability to link figurines to Rumble U. That sounds like something that would be wildly popular in Japan. (Though if it flops like the E-reader did in America, they should make sure the game is playable without them!)

    How many pages do we usually get? Do we think there's still more to come, or is that probably it?

    The e-reader required:
    1. The e-reader
    2. Likely a second gameboy advanced AND a link cable because otherwise it couldn't work with other games
    3. The cards themselves

    Two was the main sticking point, but the cards & price of the reader didn't help matters.

    The NFC reader is built into the controller already and the "big" NFC game, Skylanders, is a pretty big success.
    At the very least, they'll sell these for the same reason any Pokemon Merch gets sold.

    It varies from month to month.
    At absolute minimum we have one more page (scoop 3; scoop 1 was mewtwo, 2 was the anime arc, 4 was rumble u).
