    -Yveltal used Speculate!-

    What if Shellos gets a third form? If the new split-evolution is real, then that means Shellos is going to be in the new Pokedex. and if Shellos is going to have any relevance to gen VI, maybe they're going to give it a third possible look so there will be a form for each sub-region of Kalos; the Coastal (East), the Mountains (West) and the Central (NEW SHELLOS LOOK). If Syoomai is a special evolution for a new Shellos form...I was going somewhere with this...

    I can't tell if you are aware (it doesn't seem that you are), but there is an unused Gastrodon form backsprite in the data of Diamond and Pearl. So one was designed, but it's not clear if that design was scrapped, saved for later, or what.

    *Ruby and Sapphire. It was designed as a Gen 3 Pokemon [even had cries, I believe], but they scrapped it for an unknown reason.

    It doesn't seem that I am.
    Rude

    I know that Game Freak admitted that Shellos was originally intended to be in RSE, but they kept it from being in the final release and used it in their "form differences" gimmick in the next generation. Personally, it looks like a scrapped beta design, and if you're insinuating that they might use their original design for Shellos, it'd be a weird artistic choice to use it as it is, since it's a conglomeration of the two we already have. If they were planning on using Shellos, I think they might want to make a new form look as different as possible from the species' other forms, but I don't feel very strongly about the potential design rehash of Shellos.
    And the design was more than likely scrapped. They've made little aesthetic changes to several other Pokemon after their original release that they've stuck to, like giving Bellossom green skin.

    It was only visual data.

    This is a friendly reminder not to post scans unless they have been confirmed by a major Pokémon site!

    I wasn't trying to be rude, I just didn't want to be pointing something out that you already knew. Just typing out loud.

    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.

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