    I like that idea. Given he's already got a leaf, you're probably right, he'll get bigger and the bamboo leaf will become a bamboo staff.
    I'm personally secretly hoping they give him two evos. final one being a little old mischievous martial arts master panda. small would justify a different stat distribution compared with the other bears (and differing design). It would also help separate him from some of the existing huge attack, high HP standard fighting tanks that are already out there. stat balance wise he could be a bit between meinshao, and hitmonlee, with hopefully a fun ability, like sap sipper/serene grace.

    Is it an 18 page scoop...or 'more on page 18'?

    Not sure. PokeBeach has another two scans.

    if they could make a poke that looks fast like hitmonlee and mienshao do, that'd be pretty awesome - though i think they'll take the easy route and go slow/bulky/powerful.

    mischievous, though... prankster? a bit weird on an offensive poke, but it'd make sense if it really is like that.

    also wonder if perhaps it might not be offensively-based at all? how many defensive fighting types exist out there?

    My interpretation of the Japanese is 'further scoop on page 18' my evidence for this is that no counter for pages (枚)is used. This means that they are not counting pages but merely listing a page number. Sorry guys!

    EDIT: Assuming that the second scan is page 18, i'd say that there is most likely no more information to come from this leak or this issue of Corocoro.

    Wow, this could turn out to be a killer momentum move. I'm really looking forward to seeing what Yancham evolves into.

    opponent's face to blind them? makes it seem water/dark or water/poison, to me.

    If hair and skin are the only things you can change I'll be a bit disappointed

    Yer, and where's mine? :p

    Though this month's Corocoro probably provides me with enough initiative to buy a second hand 3DS just to play X or Y.

    i believe that ign published a story not too long ago saying that nintendo will actually sell you a second-hand refurbished 3ds for less.

    of course, you could always get one at eb games/gamestop/etc if you wanted.

    Gen 6 does not disappoint with their Pokemon! The Robin looks comically cute to me, the Panda looks like a badass, and the Goat is pretty good too. The only one I dislike is the eel, because it looks like it has a stupid smile on it's head, and it's head in general looks dumb imo.

    Also, customization yess.

    New ability maybe? Something like Flower Gift? Maybe it raises it's SAtk in the sun? Lizards do like to sit in the sun.

    Oh, I just go onto my local Pokemon Alliance to ask if anyone doesn't want their 3DS anymore, so it can be a player to player deal instead of through shops.

    But here, game shops are shabby little stores that face fierce competition between each other, so the price is around 9000 Yen.

    I like to name it Solar Power X)

    Ha! I was literally about to edit my post to say that the panda will probably get prankster (at least in its unevolved form). It makes sense.

    Hariyama and Throh are the nearest I can think of as defensive fighters. Oh and cobalion.

    I'll be surprised if gogoat doesn't evolve from something like runkidd. I'm guessing statwise it'll be a defensive counterpart to sawsbuck.

    I'm really liking all the Pokemon so far. Much better than the abortions that were in gen 5. Hopefully the rest are consistent in quality.

    definitely makes sense! i wonder what it'd get when it evolves, though... sheer force? can't really extrapolate much without at least a picture, haha

    hariyama is pretty offensive and has terrible bulk outside of great hp, but i totally forgot about throh.

    runkidd. i like that. not too bad. did you get that from "rugged"?

    So could our lizard friend have some kind of Sun Dish ability? Still, its typing isn't very inspiring (and it looks so derpy!) The panda, however, is very interesting. Maybe some kind of fast momentum-stealing pokemon? If Parting Remark (coolest move name ever) lowers offensive stats and this thing gets Prankster...
    Oh, and we better get to ride Brogoat everywhere. Indoors, outdoors, while surfing on the back of other pokemon, et cetera et cetera. I mean it, Game Freak.

    It has the same colour scheme, the same things hanging at the side of its head. It does slightly resemble it, and of all the pokemon that need an evolutionary line Mawile is right at the top of the list.

    Er... I guess it's safe in Smogon because people here do seem to have no problem stating their country --I live in Hong Kong.

    We don't have any franchisers for 3DS games, so it's not like a big official shop.

    (But the game cartridges are not fake/ pirated. They are still going to be the real Japanese ones or the real American ones, US ones usually are sold at a lower price.)

    I personally just think that it's face looks really like mawile.
    But what looks like what is very subjective in the first place :)

    ohhhhhhhhhh i see. okay, that makes sense. that actually sounds pretty cool.

    is it because japanese is more legible to chinese speakers than english is, unless you learn, or...?

    It's just because most gamers read Japanese and tend to find the English dub rather modified compared to the Japanese version.

    Also, Japanese games tend to be released a lot earlier, and HK people love love love love to be "first" to play the game. It's like a bragging culture, or like a competition and like you should at least not be slower than the main crowd.

    By the time the English version is released, people are already bored with it.
    I guess Pokemon is one of the very few exceptions that people actually buy an extra one in English.

    I personally finished my Japanese Black 2 on the release date because I got mine one day early from the game shop.
    After a few months, I sold my Black 2 before the English release because the US version usually costs even less than a 2nd hand Japanese version.


    I guess Pokemon X Y are the first games to have the same release date for both languages?
    A group of younger ones in my league are switching into English as well.

    These new pokemon all look pretty sweet. The one thing I am waiting for though is a Sharpedo evolution. For new pokemon, I just wanna see the starters evos. Anyone with me?
