    I totally agree. And for panpura, 4 (5?) weaknesses and 4 (I think, my memory fails today.) resistances/immunities doesn't seem too bad.

    Yes I also think more powerful ghost type pokemon should be introduced in larger quantity. All GF does is introduce one or two ghost type pokemon per region.If ghost pokemon other than Honedge are going to be introduced, I think it will be a good idea especially with a big region like this.
    Introducing more pokemon would be a good idea since the region is divided into three parts and I'm assuming that each part will get an equal amount of pokemon.

    5 weaknesses: Dark, Ghost, Flying, Fire, and Ice.

    6 resistances/immunities: Normal, Fighting, Grass, Water, Electric, and Ground.

    3 of the weaknesses are fairly common, but the resistances/immunities are awesome. I'd rather not have the Pokemon be based on a pumpkin, though :/

    Edit: Oops, we're not supposed to speculate in this thread according to a post on the first page. Sorry :x

    Well, that much lies in an issue with theming. Ghost type Pokémon are the least abundant in the Pokémon world as an aesthetic choice by Game Freak, which is why they might feel largely unexplored as a type.

    What's this I was hearing about X & Y being hack proof? Any one else hear about this rumor? I doubt it could be done but hey, never know.

    It's not so much a rumor as it is, for now, the truth
    3ds hacking is barely going anywhere at this point. Maybe in the future, but for the time being...

    So a generation of Pokemon we have to play legit? Well, I suppose that'd only be for new gen mons. Older gens could just be migrated in unless they get rid of that.

    CoroCoro can be found on Serebii. It seems the Pokébeach rumors are true (based on the squid and its evo), so feel free to discuss the rumors that were leaked a while ago as well.

    That's their Japanese name. For all you know, they could end up with something totally badass in English.

    Why is everything so cool!? I'm nearly crying over here, nothing from this Gen 6 looks bad at all. Love the new 'flamboyant' professor and Team Flair.

    I wonder why they chose *now* to start revealing abilities

    kind of sucks that Honedge gets No Guard, honestly

    100% accurate Will-O-Wisp. I'm perfectly okay with this.

    Ehh, you get what you pay for, and maybe it'll make it up with good stats and movepool. Really though, with a typing like that, I didn't really care what sort of ability it got haha. It sorta technically makes sense, since Hownedge has to fight and protect itself by using its own blade without a shield, hence "No Guard."

    Also I am so completely fine with a perfectly accurate Will-o-Wisp

    No Guard does make sense though. I mean, it's a sword. And with so much emphasis on Honedge's being all offense, it's just that much more likely we'll see a shield counterpart! :D

    So Maika and Karamanero get Contrary, and their new move Turn Over reverses stat changes. I'm getting giddy. :3

    Also Team Flair seems solely obsessed with making cash. My bet would be so they can maintain dat flamboyant look of theirs.

    So the new team's goal is just money.
    I like it! It's refreshingly simple and offers a lot of variety in their schemes, I think.
