Despite the load of information we received from CoroCoro, as well as the promise of news thanks to Pokémon Smash, we have even more news for you today! We've got a new English trailer, the English names for the four new Pokémon that were revealed, and a bunch of other things as well.
First, the brand new trailer:
Below is a map of the region, taking the name of Kalos Region in the English games. The English name of the central city is Lumiose City. The trailer you saw above shows off the city, as well as a few other areas of the Kalos Region.
The bird Pokémon, known as Yayakoma in Japan, will be called Fletchling in English. Also, like CoroCoro said, the move flame charge is confirmed.
The Electric lizard-like Pokémon Elikiteru, will be going by the name of Helioptile will know a new move called Parabolic Charge (Parabola Charge in Japan), which recovers half of the HP done in damage to the opponent.
The Panda Pokémon Yancham will be going by the name of Pancham in the English games. It knows the new movie Parting Shot (Parting Remark in Japan), which will lower the target's Attack and Special Attack before the user switches out.
The goat Pokémon, Gogoat will be keeping the same name for the English games, and it is given the move Horn Leech. Details revealed about the Kalos region confirm you will be able to ride Gogoat in certain parts of Lumiose City.
Official details about the Kalos region also confirm that you will be able to customize your trainer with accessories and outfits throughout your journey, although the extend to which you can customize is still unclear.
It has also been confirmed that the regional Kalos Pokédex will register Pokémon in one of three different area categories.
The two following screenshots show that you will now be able to move diagonally as you walk, as well as the introduction to trainer battles.
Hey there Pokémon fans! Thanks to some new CoroCoro leaks, we now have some information on some new Pokémon, as well as details about Pokémon X and Pokémon Y gameplay!
Here is a quick snapshot of the four new Pokémon that were revealed!
The leaked scan below from CoroCoro had given new light to four brand new and very interesting Pokémon, as well as their names, height, weights, and types. The panda Pokémon, going by the name of Yanchamu, with a height of 0.6m and a weight of 8.0kg, is a fighting type, and knows a brand new move called "Sharp Remark".
The red bird, going by the name of Yayakoma, has a height of 0.3m, and weighing 1.7kg, is based off of a Japanese Robin, and is a normal and flying type. Yayakoma can also use the move "flame charge".
The lizard-like Pokémon, going by the name of Elikiteru, is 0.5m tall, and weighs 6.0kg. It is an electric and normal type, and can use a new move called ""Parabola Charge", which does damage to the opponent, while allowing the user recover HP.
The final Pokémon revealed, going by the name of Gogoat is based off a a goat, and is 1.7m tall, and weighs 91.0kg. It is a grass type, which is able to use the move "horn leach".
The scan also shows the player being able to ride of Gogoat, although sources say this can only be done in a location known as Miare City.
The scan also shows the new Pokedex, which seems to be a tablet design.
This following scan shows the male and female characters, as well as evidence that we will be able to change their appearances slightly, such as skin, eye color, and hair color. The scan also gives us the region map, and tells us it is called the Karos Region, which is based off of France.
It shows that Miare City is most likely the main city to this region, like Castelia city was to Unova. This was the city shown in the original trailer, and the main point of the city is the large tower.
This final scan shows us the boxart for the new ganes.
We'll be sure to keep you up to date as we get more information!
