    You're right; a significant number of people who find out about it would be very mad. Pokemon has ideas that spawned from different religions and mythologies (Jirachi, Arceus, Castform, etc.), but something so obvious like an FSMmon would be pushing it.

    If it could happen, I think it might be an alternative Arceus form or something. The flavor, moveset, etc. for the FSMmon would also inspire more than a few chuckles if done right.

    As soon as you said droplets, it immediately reminded me of Water Gun's animation back in GSC. And, again, I'm not saying that "IT'S DEFINITELY ASTONISH", I'm just saying that we should be more open to suggestion and not be so secluded against others' ideas.

    I'm even starting to open up to the New-type possibility.

    But it really does look like Psychic. The squiggly lines most closely resemble the background of squiggly lines shown when using Psychic, like they overtake the field for a brief moment. That attack had a bunch of purple-pinkish squiggles fly around Kirlia's standing ground, like they were taking over half of the field and damaging Kirlia.

    And they do show a lot of old techniques at first, so since this is the first advertisement, it's unlikely that Fennekin used a new Gen VI move.

    I would say it's a bad choice to make a Pokemon that obviously resembles FSMonster, because at least the occultists are likely to get upset at the clear bastardization of their supreme being(at least, that's what they're likely to start calling an FSMmon)

    I'm sorry, but you're starting to come off as a bit obnoxious here. Why would PBR being a spin-off series make it invalid? Just because it's not a main series game? If anything, it would possibly give a better idea of how attacks look in X and Y, since like them, it's also a 3D Pokemon game.

    And there has never been anything saying that an attack's animation could not change drastically between generations.

    Just look at Toxic for the first three generations (and Stadium)
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It's a flashing screen, then a hurled blob of poison, then a pool of toxins underneath, and in Stadium, it's like fountains of venom.

    I was just throwing out there what I'd like to see and what my personal reasons are. I know we're starving for news, but jumping on someone for every little thing they say isn't a good way to kill time. Criticism is one thing, but you take it to another level. Anyway, I'm done with this argument. I'm not going to let you lure me any further into another flame war.

    :I You didn't even have reasoning to follow why you were downplaying the prospect of a Fire/Ground, Fire/Dark or Fire/Ghost, other than that you wanted another Fire/Psychic more. And you used anubis because it was already a part of the speculation that you had no appreciation for and started unintelligibly bastardizing it on the spot without any understanding of what Anubis is.

    My whole fuss about Anubis, more so than the defense for Fire/Ground, is because I'm in school to be a game animator. Since what I do has a connection to the creation of worlds, architecture, characters and beyond in games, etymology is really important to me, which is why I made my first statement about why quadrupedal anubi is an impossibility when you think about what Anubis is.

    But right now, I'm happy to leave it at "Narutendo wants more Fire/Psychics".

    I do think it could inspire some chuckles no doubt, but that is from my standpoint. Though as you said that is pushing it and to even make it a Pokemon would likely be viewed as insult. I think that more people would be offended, so for now, if you want a Flying Spaghetti Mostermon, just stick with nicknames on Tangela and Tangrowth.
    More than those two is quite unlikely

    Along with oshawott: Charmander, Torchic.



    Also, Narutendo and Yveltal, get a room. Seriously. I like both of you, and you both have a lot of good stuff to say, but the DISCUSSION has moved on and you are the only ones left in this little argument.

    Narutendo, you were wrong on points, and it is good to just admit that. Part of the problem was just the Anubis fact, as it seemed like you were passing it off as a fictional story, which, to some people, is like saying the The Bible is of the same truth as Harry Potter. While I may think that too be so, it does piss off people.

    Yveltal, you just need to cool down a bit. Yes, he made some mistakes, but by keeping this continuing your just making it worse. He's not going to change his mind on fire/psychic, because he does beleive that, while we have had a design that well-represents fire-ground, the two fire psychic guys we have don't look too fire psychic, and I beleive (sorry if I'm wrong Naru) that what he's more saying is he'd like to see a pokemon that LOOKS like a fire/psychic rather than just being one. And you can take that message and nitpick it to death along with every word he's ever typed, or you can let it go.

    Seriously guys, we don't need this thread to be filled with an argument going no where, and I sure as hell don't want R_N shutting down the thread again. So either take it to the messages, or just let it go.


    So guys, since it seems we're going back through the exact things that were said at the beginning of the thread, who wants to move on to the next topic? We can either do character customization, legendary typings, or over-analyze the original trailer. Take your pick!

    Probably. It's not like the FSM is a particularly cool design, which makes it seem that its inclusion is for no other reason than flaunting what it stands for.

    -looks back through the last ten pages-
    Have we not already dug each of those another grave over the last few days? We've already hit our cylical point again, it's like the thread is asking to go on hiatus for the next 10 days.

    I'm locking this thread until we get new information. If you want me to cite a specific reason for the lock, look no further than the post directly above this one.

    When new information is released around the 12th, I'll create an XY Discussion Mark II thread. This one is getting a bit too big.

    The good news is you can still chat about XY right now. Just do it over on #orangeislands on SynIRC. You can learn about IRC here, or just click this if you're lazy.

    Off-topic posting is the main reason this thread has been locked. "Off-topic" in this case means anything not related to Pokemon X and Y, including fakemons and non-Pokemon discussion. The good news is you can still have off-topic chatting on IRC, which is a great resource for the OI community as a whole, so check it out~

    Remember, whenever the Mark II of this thread comes along, keep the off-topic chatting on IRC and leave the thread for actual discussion of the games !_!
