    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.

    an offensive ghost/steel type sounds awful, i hope so much there is a shield counterpart

    I can see it now... Team Flair forces you to pay for DLC to move forward in the story.

    FUCK YEH goddamn so many of those pokemans look badass as badass is/goes. And the bad dudes are Team Flamboyant if I read correctly? SICK. Yeah and I guess if Honedge has No Guard it'll be more offensive probably. And the professor looks like a total bro, yo. He's all like "Hey man, like, ya wanna get super crunk with my PokeMANS? I'm hella down man."

    Oh and the level two Panda evo dude looks super cool. Goddamn he looks tough. But yeah so many things look flamboyant lolz. The evil team. The professor. The squid Pokemans. And I guess looking back Sylveon sorta. Gee I wonder if this has anything to do with France/Fairy type? Hhhmmmm? Might make saving the world not feel so vital if everything including your foes are goofballs but........I guess it's better then emo?

    Turn Over and Contrary sounds dangerous with the right moves. Tho Contrary on its own might be an amazing blessing if Parting Shot becomes a staple. Free +1 to Atk & SpAtk.
    Between Chespin, Pangoro, and Karamanero, my in-game team has a lot of Dark-types. Might be the first time I actively cycle Pokemon teams.
