I'm a huge fan of Pokémon still at the age of 23 (no shame) and I'm pretty pumped for the new games that are slated to come out in October. A bunch of new information was released today about some new species, as well as information about gameplay that will hopefully get you guys as excited as I am.
As you may already know, a few months ago we were introduced to our new starters for this gen: Chespin, Froakie, and Fennekin.
I almost always start with Fire and I think Fennekin is pretty adorable, so I've already planned to begin my game with him/her. We have also met our two Legendary Pokémon: Xerneas and Yveltal.
Again, I've already been planning ahead and I will definitely be getting X because I love Xerneas. Those antlers are so pretty.
Two more Pokémon that have been confirmed for this game are Sylveon and a new form of Mewtwo that I don't believe has an official title yet. There hasn't been much information about these guys released yet though. Sylveon is another form of Eevee!
I love love love Sylveon and I know I'll spend the majority of my gameplay trying to catch one :3
The following four Pokémon are Yamchan, Elikiteru, Yayakoma, Gogoat. These are the Japanese names for the character, so if you are in the U.S. you might end up seeing them with different names once the game is released.
"Yanchamu (ヤンチャム) is the Naughty Pokémon. It is Fighting-type, 0.6m and 8.0kg. It has a new move called Parting Remark.
Yayakoma (ヤヤコマ) is the Japanese Robin Pokémon. It is Normal/Flying, 0.3m and 1.7kg.
Elikiteru (エリキテル) is an Electric/Normal-type. It is the Generation Pokémon and is 0.5m and 6.0kg. It has a new move called Parabola Charge which heals the user while damaging opponents. It uses solar rays to generate electricity.
Gogoat (ゴーゴート) and is the Riding Pokémon. It’s Grass-type, 1.7m and 91.0kg. You can actually ride this Pokémon in the field. It can learn Horn Leech."
There are also rumors that your character will be customizable which will be a nice addition as well. Let me know if you guys have heard any other rumors about the game that I missed in my post!
