Pokemon X and Y; More Interesting Rumours

Don’t take these ones too seriously though, there’s absolutely zero evidence for any of them and quite a few are incredibly unlikely to boot.  None the less, here are the latest Pokemon X and Y rumours:

  • New Pokémon “Elvany,” Flying/Fairy, “will be revealed soon.”
  • “Tame Park” allows you to deposit up to 3 pokemon for one day, and trade PokéTokens to raise EV’s.
  • Dunsparce, Mawile, Stantler, Sableye will get new evolutions.
  • Two boys, “Tofune” and “Mika” will challenge the player through out the game; one with long hair, another with spikes and a purple striped shirt. seems to be connected to the plot.
  • Pangoro does exist, with a punk hairstyle and green fur “gloves.” A new ability that Pangoro has will allow the holder to steal items during battle, called “Vandal Heart,” is also mentioned.
  • Skrelp evolves into Weedra, with it’s type not changing(Poison/Water), and learns the moves belch and signal beam.
  • Clauncher evolves twice, and into a Water/Electric type, with a new move “Blister Blast,” a water type move that is super effective to flying types as well as fire, rock, and ground.
  • “Kale” is the second gym leader, with blond hair and a “androgyne style.” Uses fairy types and the aforementioned Elvany.

And now we’ve got them listed, here are some thoughts on each of them:

New Pokémon “Elvany,” Flying/Fairy, “will be revealed soon.”

This first rumour is fairly plausible, since Nintendo are going to want to reveal as many new Fairy Pokemon as possible to promote the new type.  And a Flying/Fairy type seems like an extremely logical type pairing for such a Pokemon, especially given how many fictional fairies tend to have wings of some sort.

“Tame Park” allows you to deposit up to 3 pokemon for one day, and trade PokéTokens to raise EV’s.

This ties into the earlier rumours quite well, but I’m skeptical about it. Would they really want to give you a simple way to raise EVs like this?

Dunsparce, Mawile, Stantler, Sableye will get new evolutions.

Here’s another logical rumour.  It would explain why Sableye and Dunsparce are on the new movie poster (since the anime likes to introduce newly evolved forms of Pokemon before they’re attainable in game).  But I do have to wonder one thing here.

Why is everyone assuming Mawile will become a Fairy type?  Is it another rumour that people haven’t let go of yet?

Two boys, “Tofune” and “Mika” will challenge the player through out the game; one with long hair, another with spikes and a purple striped shirt. seems to be connected to the plot.

Implausible.  We’ve already got four ‘friend’ characters (and the likely evil team that’s going to be revealed later).  We don’t need another two rivals, and I doubt this will be the case.

Pangoro does exist, with a punk hairstyle and green fur “gloves.” A new ability that Pangoro has will allow the holder to steal items during battle, called “Vandal Heart,” is also mentioned.

There’s already an ability which does this, namely the Pickpocket ability.  I’m not sure another such ability will be introduced.

Skrelp evolves into Weedra, with it’s type not changing(Poison/Water), and learns the moves belch and signal beam.

Weedra?  Sorry, can’t take this seriously.  Seems too close to Seadra (especially with the whole seahorse thing going on).  Don’t buy it.

Clauncher evolves twice, and into a Water/Electric type, with a new move “Blister Blast,” a water type move that is super effective to flying types as well as fire, rock, and ground.

Why have a water move super effective against flying types when they could just use an electric attack?  Seems pointless (and implausible) if you ask me.

“Kale” is the second gym leader, with blond hair and a “androgyne style.” Uses fairy types and the aforementioned Elvany.

Possible, the chance a Fairy gym is going to be used in this game is very high (note how gen 2 had a Steel gym and a Dark specialist Elite Four member to promote the new types).  Not sure about the name and design though.

So those are the latest rumours.  Are they plausible?  Not sure, but they’re certainly interesting regardless.

What do you think of these rumours?

These sound almost like another round of rumours from a so-called ‘insider’ who claimed Scatterbug and Spewpa were going to be part Fairy.

I’d disregard these rumours as 100% fan speculation if I were you.

With the release of Pangoro, who looks nothing like the description above, the rumours are already proven fake.
