    That's actually quite impressive. Four hundred full pages. Ten thousand posts. All that for the info found here. You can watch all the videos on that page, look at all the pictures, and read all the text in less than five minutes. That's everything we know about Pokémon X and Y.

    I really enjoy good speculation, and it's evident that others do too. Still, for all we have talked, GameFreak have given us surprisingly little to talk about.

    Is this the first thread to ever get over 10k posts? With such little info to speculate, Icant imagine what will happen when more ligit info is released. How many posts is this thread going to get? There is so much hype for the new games, I think we're all really eager for new info.

    Nah, it is not the first to get that far, & I can assure you it that will not be the last. This is probably the fastest thread to get to 10k on the forums (to date), but idk if that is true.

    That said, XY seems good so far to me, though I am not that fond of the new Mewtwo Forme, tbh. I am just hoping there is no new types to worry about this gen... But we also know so little of what is in the game so far, apart from the obvious... -.-'

    me and some friends were speculating earlier about the new games and he wants Arceus to get a new form!!! Don't even put it down though because I already have. (Damn thing has 17 if the color pallate changes are to be considered!!!)

    That's Normalize. Makes all your moves normal, and since Kecleon would then always be normal type, he'd always get STAB.

    He means a move that changes type. Normalize replaces Kecleon ability, destroying its novelty. A move like (terrible name alert) Chamo Gun, or Rainbow Shot, would always be the same type as the user (and thus always be stab.) 80 or 75 power would be about right.

    What I'm really saying is a normal type move that always gets STAB with Keckleon, no matter what type he is. But they could just change the power and make a sig move for him or something.

    Gen 2 brought in about 13 new evolutions of old pokemon.
    Gen 4 brought about 23.
    Oh, I am ridiculously excited to see about 20 new evolutions this gen.

    Let's not forget the baby Pokémon!
    Gen 2 introduced 7 baby Pokémon for pre-existing Pokémon and 1 original baby.
    Gen 3 introduced 2 baby Pokémon for pre-existing Pokémon.
    Gen 4 introduced 7 baby Pokémon for pre-existing Pokémon and 1 original baby.

    And just for specuation, the lowest BST Pokémon with a baby pre-evolution is Marill(250) and lowest BST Pokémon without an evolution and with a pre-evolution is Roselia(400), well, initially anyways. The second lowest are 270 with Jigglypuff and 405 with Wobbuffet respectively.

    Mincinno pre-evolution GO!

    I actualy want to see a new string of pokemon. A microraptor that turns into a velociraptor. The typing could be Dragon/Poison. Make it a physical attacker with great speed. And make that a male form. The female form could be a brontosaurus line with Dragon/Ghost typings. High HP and defense. Any one else onboard with this idea? :D

    I wonder if it might be less, though. Gen 4's theme was "Ultimate", so bringing in a lot of evolutions made sense, but who knows about this go around.

    Could definitely see at least 10 though, yeah

    Because two entirely different species could be opposite genders...

    I know Pokemon doesn't have to have perfect biology, but it needs to at least be sort of accurate.

    As for evolutions, yes, especially for certain Pokemon that could be much more viable (anywhere) with better stats and a slightly bigger movepool (via an evolved form).

    Assuming you mean the two genders of a Pokemon must be the same species, I point you to Combee, whose females evolve into the bagworm Wormadam, and whose males become the moth Mothim.

    they're similar enough, though. velociraptor and brontosaurus are nothing alike. predator and herbivore. biped and quadriped. light and heavy. their only real likeness is that they were both (presumably) herd/pack creatures, and that they're dinosaurs.

    while Pokemon have split evolved based on gender before, the two seperate speices have always had some semblance, or relatability. If the child/basic stage is an extremely ambiguous dinosaur that could evolve into anything, maybe it's possible to pull off design/visual-wise. The difference bewteen being either a raptor or a brontosaurus Vs being either a bug that comes from a worm, or just a bigger worm, is that raptors and brontosauri are on two different ends of the tree of life. Brontosauri lives during the Jurrasic period and traditional velociraptors lived during the Cretaceous. Even then, if it did make more biological sense and they were two different dinosaurs from the same era, to have a sauropod and a dromaeosaurid in the same evolutionary line is...odd, to say the least. Maybe if this was Digimon, they'd have an easier time getting away with it...

    Edit- oh, ninja'd You're fast, Shiruba.

    Combee? I think you mean BURMY.

    Oh, also - why make it a male and a female? Why not just make them two separate pokemon?

    You're thinking of Burmy, not Combee, and there are some species of moth where the caterpillar makes a covering of leaves/twigs to disguise itself, and then once it turns into a moth the females are flightless and don't leave the covering of twigs while the males fly around looking for females. Sound familiar? Burmy/Wormadam/Mothim are all based on the same species, and I quite like how much research GF put into them (I do wish they didn't make them quite so bad though, even compared to other early bugs they're useless).

    Ignoring the proposed gender split, I think a dinosaur line of Pokemon would be really neat. After all these long years of Pokemon, with prehistoric Pokemon every generation, and the closest thing we've ever got to a dinosaur is Venusaur (which doesn't look much like any dinosaur to me... at least any recognizable ones) and... Cranidos?

    > Implying Froslass and Glailie look alike :3
    Meganium, Torterra and Aerodactyl off the top of my head.
    EDIT: Oh, Tyranitar too.
    Why the doubt on Cranidos? (Pachy-cephalo-saurus literally translates (from Greek) to Fat Head Lizard, ring a bell? :P)

    And easy on the Combee-Burmy arguments guys... not like Combee males and females get the same treatment ;)

    Actually all fossil pokemon are dinosaurs except for Kabuto who is based on a trilobite or a shoehorn crab.

    Sorry for the nitpicking, but the Brontosaurus doesn't actually exist. I'd love to see more dinosaurs personally, particularly large predators (we have none). I'd also like to see a plesiosaur for the standard water type pokemon in every region.
