    So I feel I missed something

    Why do people think Boomburst is physical, again?

    Hmmm its seems that politoed has 31 IV in HP and 252 EVs in HP, giving 197 HP at level 50...seems like someone plays competitively
    Its not impossible to be physical, but I guess after topsy turvy it makes sense to be special. I thought we wouldn't have a Hyper Voice clone, which is special, that's why I thought physical...but I guess gamefreak is really lazy.

    Well it hits everyone, teammates included, so it's already not a clone of hyper voice

    I'm hoping the mere presence of Drizzle Politoed there is some indication that transferring is possible. MORIMOTO WOULDN'T HACK PERFECT, UNOBTAINABLE IN XY POKEMON JUST FOR THIS DEMO RIGHT? RIGHT???

    My thoughts exactly....or (a dream come true) there is a way to change ivs in pokemon x and y and it's not permanent.

    Just because it had the ability doesn't mean it's otherwise unobtainable without transferring

    *cough*hiddenhollows*cough*weezing*

    We don't even know if this will return or not though :/ and I'm still on the fence about items returning from previous generations via whatever transfer method they use.
    Remember when B/W 1 came out and everyone was upset because Berries and Soul Dew were absent until DreamWorld and Black2/White2 in-game events happened.
    They just might do the same treatment with X/Y and that means NO Eviolite mons fore example.

    That was what I was implying, yes
    You're right, they might not. But they could. Or they have a new way to get hidden ability Pokemon. Or hidden abilties can just happen in the wild rarely.

    Pretty sure Eviolite will be available in-game. GF seems to want you to give it to your starter while it's in its second stage.

    Not that one. Its Dream World ability (If they're retaining that idea).



    Froakie caught my attention the most. It can blow its foams like flotation devices and can also use them as shurikens. GameFreak's favorite Generation VI starter, I guess. And does the move that Chespin used look like Leech Seed?

    They seem to have perfect IVs. The four of them had perfect HP IVs. Gallade, Politoed and Ferrothorn all have their HP maxed out, Marowak was the only one who didn't, but still have 135 hp, which is the minimum with 31 IVs.

    I'm guessing that it's a special normal type earthquake.

    Reveal the starter evolutions already. You'd think that'd be one of the first things revealed yet theyve said nothing

    So I'm gonna be super ignorant and not read the last 267 pages to see if my question has been answer.

    A while back, just around when Fairy-type was revealed, a friend mentioned someone (English beta testers I thought?) leaking out info like Fairy-type, the typing of the starter evos, etc.

    Would anyone mind giving me a full list of theses rumors so I can be brought up to speed?

    sorry to break it to you guys, but that's not hydro pump. even with a neutral nature and 0 evs, a rain boosted crit hydro pump with stab and life orb will almost ALWAYS KO a neutral nature 0 ev sylveon. If the HP and spec. defense is 110 and 130, it will do about 102-121% damage. If the stats were reversed it's even worse: 107-126% roughly. So yeah, I think it was likely water gun or scald

    It's clearly Water Gun. The anime taught me that Water Gun is a powerful move

    It's not. Hydro pump should do waaaay more damage than the attack did.
