The Pokémon Company have revealed whole host of new information for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y today showing us an insight into more Pokémon Mega Evoltions as well as what the second evolutions look like for the starter Pokémon Chespin, Froakie, and Fennekin!
Remember that Mega Evolution of Mewtwo that was announced a short while ago? Well it’s actually the Mega Evolution for Mewtwo in Pokémon Y, according to The Pokémon Company Pokémon X has it’s own Mewtwo evolution, Mega Mewtwo X which is said to be a Psychic/Fighting type.
The already overpowered Garachomp is also set to get a Mega Evolution so you’re pretty screwed if someone throws that bad-boy at you. The increased energy released by its Mega Evolution turns Mega Garchomp’s arms into huge blades that send out a furious attack. Mega Garchomp’s Attack and Special Attack are greatly increased after it Mega Evolves, so its Dragon-type move Dragon Claw becomes extra ferocious. I can’t wait for that!
Chespin, Froakie, and Fennekin’s middle evolution has also been revealed and their names are Quilladin, Chespin’s evolution, a pure Grass-type and knows the move Mud Shot. Fennekin’s evolution, Braixen which is pure Fire-type and knows the move Psyshock and last, but not least, is Froakie’s evolution, Frogadier which is pure Water-type and knows the move Bounce.
More information has been released about character customisation too! Players can visit boutiques and a salon to change their Trainers’ outfits and hairstyles. You’ll be able to change your clothes, hat, shoes, and accessories to make your character feel unique to you! Boutiques are located in many of the cities throughout the Kalos region, each with its own unique style. Adding to this customized feature, when players change their outfits and hairstyles, their icons on the Player Search System (PSS) update too!
Are you ready for some more Pokémon?
In Pokémon X and Y some Pokémon possess a number of different forms, take the stylish Poodle Pokémon, Furfrou. This Pokémon can be groomed into a number of different appearances. The more it is groomed, the more styles may become available, some of which are being shown for the first time today. Players will be alerted to Furfrou’s grooming schedule, and if it’s left untended, its fur will grow long and shaggy, returning to Furfrou’s original look – just like a real dog! Furfrou can learn Baby-Doll Eyes, a new Fairy-type move debuting in this game that allows its user to go first regardless of Speed and can lower the opponent’s Attack stat.
Next Meowstic is a never-before-seen Psychic-type Pokémon that has different forms depending on its gender. Unlike other Pokémon that have different forms based on gender, the moves Meowstic can learn will differ based on whether it’s male or female. Male Meowstic can learn the Psychic-type move Miracle Eye, a move that allows future moves to hit regardless of the opponent’s evasion, making it a powerful support in battle.. Female Meowstic are better at outright attacks and can learn the Psychic-type move Extrasensory, which not only does damage but can also cause the target to flinch so it can’t use moves on that turn.
Finally More is known about Team Flare the antagonists in Pokémon X and Y. Five Scientists are believed to be the driving force behind this mysterious group, each one identified by a different hairstyle and unique outfit – of course. The purple-haired woman is Celosia, the orange-haired woman is Aliana, the green-haired woman is Bryony, and the blue-haired woman is Mable. There is one man among the Scientists, Xerosic, who is easily identifiable by his red goggles and fire-red hair. Their focus is world-changing, and they have a clear goal in mind, but what is it?
Pokémon X and Y is scheduled for release for the 3DS on October 12, and I can’t freaking wait!
