    I'm hoping for some banging French electro. Daft Punk already did the TRON soundtrack, get them on board for XY!

    You mean the dragon with a giant torch as tail? How does that not look like a dragon/fire type to you?
    If by "fire/dragon" you mean a generic european dragon, I'd rather not have one with that typing as it's incredibly generic and cheesy.

    Oh. My. God. If Daft Punk did the soundtrack for X/Y, I'd shit bricks. Bricks of pure, solidified DELIGHT. Micheal Jackson did the soundtrack for Sonic 3 & Knuckles, so it IS entirely plausible...

    I think it has more to do with the fact that it is the only fire pokemon besides the Chandelure line (which has flames on it anyways) that isn't red. Sure, it's tail can light up, but otherwise it's color scheme is very ambiguous

    I'd also argue it doesn't look like a dragon either, but then again neither does Altaria or Zekrom

    Don't you mean fire there?

    Poochyena, Ralts…


    Does anyone remember that fake?

    That bird, based off where it came from, could have been either dark or (more likely) poison. I think it would be cool to have a poison bird, and I definitely want something like this early game. All early birds have had very simple color schemes; I want something that stands out.

    GUISE!! I've something important to tell you! Remember Hirobyte, the Spaniard from Pokexperto who leaked the fifth gen starters evos and such? The one that I talked about some pages ago? Well, he is supposedly going to reveal Xerneas/Yveltal/Sylveon typing at 7:00 PM (here in Spain, do the calcs for your timezones). Of course this can be fake, but let me remind you that he did the same with Pignite/Dewott/Servine and no one believed him, so he has a good point. On the other hand, he tweeted this earlier this morning:
    In other words, "Today is a fairy day. Do you like fairies? ...which is kinda suspicious. Stay tuned for this! He is supposedly going to reveal some artworks here:
    https://www.facebook.com/Pokemaniacos.Wifi.Club I know it is in Spanish, but...whatever.

    I think we'll get a dragon-fighting this generation and it'll most probably be a bulky attacker with low speed maybe even 145 attack. It'll be so strong pseudo-legendary with those awesome stabs and good resistances.

    You can't stop people from finding reason to those type interactions; it’s part of gamefreak not explaining everything and giving us the benefit of the doubt. Well, scratch that. It’s not just gamefreak; every game I’ve played doesn’t need to explain itself to its players on how it relates types/elements to each other. Why do we have to whine about game developers not spoonfeeding us about this when we ourselves can connect the dots?
    Endothermic or ectothermic, that doesn't change the fact that dinosaurs didn't last long and became extinct at the advent of the Ice Age---a testament to why reptiles find it difficult to survive the cold. And you probably heard about the theory that the origins of dragons in many legends around the world, when looking at it scientifically, came from various fossils of humongous dinosaurs. Relating dragons to dinosaurs isn't that hard, really.
    Why not? The form of dragons (eastern and western) in general is reptilian. I do not understand why such reasoning is shaky to you. And why did metabolism come into play here?

    Let's not stray into specific pokemon here---types in general are what we're talking about. Talking about certain dragon-type pokemon not having reptilian elements in your viewpoint and thus should not be weak to ice is comparable to why Stunfisk is a fish that is not water-type and is weak to water. We shouldn’t open a can of worms mixed with pokemon design bashing.
    While I do not reject the fact that winds do not affect much smaller plants, wind itself is not the whole package of the flying type---that’s why it isn’t named wind-type. Also that's why I said there could be two explanations about it. What is your opinion on the other?
    I will quote myself on this: “Well, that's the problem with having many types. If we use something like Final Fantasy X and its general 4 elements chart, then it would be, as you say, intuitive. But with a game utilizing 17 types, there's bound to be conflict. However, there is always a reason behind what gamefreak did with their charts---It's for us whether to accept it or not.”

    This is what really irks me about your posts. You keep talking about certain type interactions not making sense whatsoever, when they actually have logical basis which you just find hard to accept. There is a difference between “Dragon-types being weak to ice attacks don’t make sense, period” and “Dragon-types being weak to ice attacks is questionable”.
    While I agree that the type chart needs tweaking here and there, it’s mostly from a competitive standpoint, and less on the logical one. For example, you could try to make each type to be weak against 3 other types, strong against 2, and immune against 1 for the sake of balanced typing interaction, but that will definitely sacrifice logical basis in many aspects.

    I was actually hoping for Pokemon having more dynamic tunes like Persona 4's battle soundtrack(mostly because I adore Shoji Meguro's music), but it's probably wishful thinking...X(

    He just revealed. According to this guy, Yveltal is Dark/Flying, and Xerneas and Sylveon are Fairy.

    I doubt GF would make just one cover legendary of a new typing. If we do get a newtype, Xerneas and Yveltal would either both have it or neither would have it.

    Fairy, eh? Like Fizz, i'm still skeptical, but some pokemon will probably be retconned by that. Errrrmm maybe Celebi? Togekiss family? Blissey family? Clefable family?

    I'm kinda skeptical too, but this guy has always been right, so I want to believe.

    Ugh, I just don't understand why it would be called a fairy type. Fairy is such a specific term. The only Pokemon that actually look like a fairy are the Clefable line and Celebi. This guy is apparently reliable and has a following to maintain, so I doubt he'd just make shit up. But calling it the fairy type would just be so stupid.

    I also personally think Fairy is stupid, and too female orientated for video games. I don't suppose something has been lost in the translation from Japanese to Spanish, and then Spanish to English?

    Wouldn't everything in the fairy egg group be retconned? It's not that it's so dramatic it's game changing but assuming it's true what should be its resists and weaknessess?

    Cool. I like it if it's real.
    Just hoping that families like Clefairy (cleFAIRY lol) will be changed to Normal/Fairy or pure Fairy type, like Magnemite was in GSC.
    Also, I know that this has been posted before, but this time we seem to have reliable news in our hands, so: we might see a new type chart altogether, like we did in gen 2 :D

    inb4 "if it's not broken, do not fix it"
    NO.
    There has always been new stuff added replacing stuff that was not broken. This is what gives you a reason to play the NEW game.
    Gen 2 introduced 2 new types
    Gen 3 introduced EVs/IVs, Natures, Abilities and Doubles
    Gen 4 introduced Physical/Special split
    Gen 5 introduced little changes in game mechanics besides Triples/Rotation battles
    ...so it's high time some more diversity was added to the game!

    So yeah, hopefully we won't only get crap Newtwo this gen but some exciting stuff as well! Looking forward to it!

    the type "balance" is broken anyway. poisons get the shit end of the stick, whereas steel is somehow high and mighty. i can understand why dragons are powerful - they're generally rare - but making a poke almost automatically great just because it's a dragon kinda sucks imo.
