    Didn't you guys learn your lesson in February? Never trust a magazine page revealed before the 15th >:|
    That baby Drowzee was kind of clever though...

    SO! I got a theory worthy of a thread locking. What if Xerneas and Yveltal are two members of a group of seven legendaries that represent the Pleiades Sisters? Xerneas and Yveltal could represent Maia and Taygete.
    OR, Xerneas and Yveltal are based on constellations! in the norse astrology maps, there is a constellation for a deer, and another for an eagle/large bird. To stretch it further, Xerneas could be based partly on Orion, and Yveltal is Aquila.

    Regarding Sableye and his possibility for an evo, I feel like we have the most evidence to note that something will happen to Sableye, with an evolution riding on top of the list. I'd like to discuss the potential competitive possibilities this evo could grant. I'm curious as to knowing whether Sableye will become an OU rank threat with Eviolite to increase its defenses and annoy the shit out of OU with Will o Wisp, or will the evolution be a bigger impact on the metagame. I like Sableye, expect when it's uses against me, and it's biggest downfall is how easily it gets smashed by stuff like Draco Meteor and Hydro Pump.

    Syableye will also be availible in LC which means its stats would actually be good. Saybleye will become twice the bugger in uu when its defenses are boosted by eviolite. If it gets an evolution, good things will happen to saybleye.

    People keep saying that with Eviolite, this Pokemon or that Pokemon would become an instant OU member. I'm not heavily competitive, but how is it that narrowing it's option for an item to one thing a weaker Pokemon would desperately need to stand up to other Pokemon who wouldn't need an item bonus a qualifier for OU status? I wouldn't doubt that a SuperSableye would become an instant OU classic because it could use and abuse other useful items(without even mentioning it's potential movesets), but how does regular unevolved Sabeleye stand up to not only its evolved form, but a wave of other highly useful competitive options?

    Oh guys, I don't believe anyone mentioned this, but the name of the eagle on the World Tree (you know, the one Yveltal is supposedly based on) is apparently named Hresvelgr. Possible name connection anyone?

    This topic seems dangerously close to competitive. In any case though i think its fair to assume sabelye will be in the regional dex, the only unresolved matter is the ability if we can't get prankster sabelye in game and we're stuck with stall (the opposite of prankster) I doubt that even an evolution would warrant its use

    I would assume that the prankster Sableye traded to the female player by Curtis through that 50-phone-calls-and-a-ferris-wheel bullshit would still be able to be transferred. I seriously doubt they're doing another generation split.

    With some 40 hours left before we get actual news, there's no need to lock the thread. People enjoy good speculation (even if it's baseless), there's no name-calling or tedious arguments going on at the time, and the Mewtwo news are still fresh enough to warrant a little talk (at least for 40 more hours, until the next wave of news). Besides, it's nice to summarize what was made for April Fools.

    Quickster, that was some very neat spotting there concerning the gym. I think your observation is spot-on.

    I'm also on the bandwagon that the "Mr XY" thing is fake. I highly doubt the same person made both the alleged list of Pokémon and this. Probably just an imposter. As others have stated (Jimera0?), the effort involved is too great or it would require access to the original Photoshop files to shuffle elements around.

    Again, concerning Eviolite Sableye: It sure would be good in today's metagame, but there's absolutely no saying it won't be terribly outclassed when XY comes around. We don't know how it would tie in to the next metagame to come.

    Also, the only times the thread was locked were when the threadgoers were using offensive terms to describe Sylveon and when the discussion was going in a circle. Neither is happening in the thread now.

    16th Movie Sableye = 7th Movie Munchlax

    Every time a new Gen is announced we usually have a movie with the new pokes before its release. Hell, we even had a Donphan in the first movie for example, and I still find it difficult to believe the fact that the Lugia movie was a first gen movie.

    Thank God that Mewtwo crap was fake!
    Unfortunately this takes us back to square one... we don't even know Sylveon's type and its been a while.

    Sorry... I was posting that on a new thread, but it got directed here.
    I'm very sorry because I thought it was uncovered since the title of this thread was rather general.

    However, I personally find the colour intensity of the upper left corner of the "new" poster very weird when compared to the orange part. (They did not increase/ decrease at the same rate)
    Therefore, I still think that it was edited.

    In hindsight, my post was a tad too harsh. Sorry for that, no need to apologize.

    Also, the argument with colour intensity is something I haven't seen brought up yet. Clever spotting, but I'm not sure if it means anything. Might be.

    In other news, on that "new" poster, (hotlinking because the image is very big), what is that thing in front of Genesect's knee? Is it an extension of Mewtwo's tail? Its leg? It's a very dark purple, kinda like the shade the neck-tail eventually fades into, but that would mean this tail would have to be extremely long. On the other hand, if it's its leg (looking rather like it because of the thingies that look like deformed ankle lumps), then this Mewtwo form is seriously bowlegged.

    Yes it was edited...by the official people who make the poster of the movies!
    Which means it is probably not fake...at least not yet.
    I don't believe ANYTHING Mr. XY would say at this point, if he was telling the truth he would show us some proof of HOW he pulled it off and not just say he did it himself. So stupid, but hey guys I found something you might find interesting, sadly it's only on the 3DS at the moment.
    If you go to the 3DS eShop and look up the trailer for Pokemon X & Y, it's been updated with new music and Yveltal's "cry" was also updated and sounds a lot different when it appears. If I can find it on YouTube I'll link it but for now head to the eShop.
    Edit:
    I decided to make it myself so you guys can hear it

    People shouldn't be so critical about the weird lighting and coloring issues on the poster and bag. I believe those are issues within the production line. If it's real, mistakes on a prototype product wouldn't really discredit it. The worst case against NewMewtwo is that there aren't any spaces left in the movie merchandise line for a NewMewtwo trinket. (fact check me on this)Normally, in the predetermined set of watches or keychains that come along with the movie, they leave a couple of the designs/toys as mysteries to be revealed later. By the time this rolled around, all of the mystery toys were revealed. If NewMewtwo were real, Bandai or whichsoever toy company wouldn't be capitalizing on him until Gen VI rolls around at the end of the year, which is unheard of.

    To all the people who are celebrating that newtwo is fake, remember this things:

    1. Back when the 5th gen starters evos where leaked people did admit to forgerying them even tough they where real

    2. The same 5th gen starters images were analyzed and concluded to be fake


    As for me I don't care about 'em legendaries, I wanna see new regular pokemon :<

    I think it's pretty unlikely to be fake myself :/

    Have we talked about how the floating Eevee palace and the prehensility of Sylveon's ribbons kind of lends more credence to the Flying-type theory?

    oh no, pls not let mewtwo look like that, i alrdy disliked him due to the amount of ppl preferring him to mew, even if its true, does That make mewtwo get increased speed Stat? To combat genesects speed.

    Also, a burning question, are The 3 regis and heatran Considered legendaries? Cause from wat I know, legendaries are Supposed to be
    1.only 1 of Each( how about lugia? Or two latios?)Cause 1 anime episode Mentioned the only heatran To learn eruption( meaning There are more??) The regis appeared many Times in the anime, from different ppl.
    2. Difficult/not Able To Be caught (again heatran and the regis failed This Rule)
    3. Has a reason to exist(only applies to heatran wat he exist for?) Entei is volcanos, groundon is master of hotness (that smexy salamander) and moltress, bringer of sunny days, zapdos rainy and articuno snowy. (Seen from movie.)
    4. Immortal (lol, lugia came back 2/3 times from zapdos, moltres and articuno's sins. (That Bird just Cant die.)

    And Suicune, entei and raikou are the best legendaries ever, i want to Ride on them OMGAWWDDD. They look so comfy!!!

    Feels like the leg of mewtwo, or watever that thing is, cause on the bottom left of the page, u can see a tail there. But that is one ugly leg. Did they do this to make mewtwo more streamlined?

    Really, the idea of only finding one of every legendary pertains to the idea that, during a trainer's journey, they'd only be likely to see one of whichever certain legendary Pokemon because it's so rare. Dawn/Lucas can meet a Heatran, as well as Nate/Rosa. Heatran's distribution amongst the center of lava pits exclusively is a part of what makes him legendary. Because how many people are going to go out to a lava pit where an ancient Pokemon has been forming for centuries(presumably, heatran is a puddle of magma with a personality).
    And then there's base stats, and being so cool that they all sit at the back of the bus-er i mean-regional pokedex, but exclusiveness is still relevant to the legendaries that we can assume have multiple members to its species. That doesn't really explain the Regi-family, though. I guess Game Freak likes them enough to keep putting them in new games.

    No, the person making that claim is full of shit.

    You can EASILY disprove this by looking at the second image (which this guy claims was printed on a T-shirt)

    [​IMG]

    T-SHIRTS DO NOT REFLECT LIGHT THAT WAY! Not to mention, the shape of the object looks nothing like a T-shirt, and the crinkling looks like plastic or paper, not fabric. Also the OTHER image does not appear to be printed on poster-board, as this person claimed. It's obviously a lie, and a poorly thought out one at that!

    This guy is obviously claiming credit for something he had no part in making. You guys were just so willing to grasp at ANYTHING that said it was fake that you fell for it without thinking.
