    Hmmm, I hope it’s something a little more substantial that Mewtwo this time. I mean, it’s still cool, but I’m hungering for some more content to squeal over. :3

  • Shadowman

    I hoping for final evolution of the three starter Pokemon and maybe reveal some wild Pokemon that gonna be on there.

    • Suicunesol

      Won’t be that soon…

      We might get confirmation on the new Pokemon type. And some beginner wild Pokemon.

      • Lubulos

        This. I need to know if the rumour about the new pokémon type is real.

        • KR-Joker

          I`ll be really disappointed if it isn’t a new type. The rumoured weaknesses and resistances sound perfect, and would definitely add more balance to the game.

          • Miss_Madness

            Or it would throw the game out of wack, since they’d have to rebalanced everyone

          • KR-Joker

            Except the game is already out of whack with completely useless attacking types like Poison and Psychic, and overpowered attacking types like Dragon and Dark.

          • Miss_Madness

            I will agree to disagree with you sir. Since I don’t find poison or psychic useless. Dragon and Dark aren’t the uber types they use to be from my point of view.

            It seems odd to add a new type this late and if they do that doesn’t mean old types are going to be done away with.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        new type? is that even possible? pokemon already had 17 types + the ???? thing
        it’s been enough I think

        • Well… Something needs to take down Sableye and Spiritomb, those guys are annoying.

          • Krisi92

            I hope you’re not serious. Pokémon can’t be only beaten by things that are super effective against them, and Sableye has really weak defenses anyway. Stuff like Magnezone and Ferrothorn are much more annoying to beat most if the time.

          • I know that. Steel types tend to have higher defensive stats, but I thought having a Pokémon that can be super effective to them to be a hinderance. In hindsight of your comment, the Ghost/Dark pairing isn’t all that bad.

            Though, saying this, I find Metagross to be annoying.

          • Krisi92

            Yeah, Steel Type Pokémon aren’t that bad for their defensive stats: that’s a problem, too, but the fact that they have 11 resistances and 1 immunity is pretty ridiculous.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            metagross?? just using blast burn or any fire moves with sp.atk with pokemon with high sp.atk then it’s done
            steel and rock as primary type usually have low sp.def and speed too, vice versa with psychic and ghost as primary type which usually have low def but higher speed

          • They have crap stats its fine

          • Renaldi Saputra

            use odor sleuth, then using fighting tech.. it’s all done.. they’re low at def IIRC

  • XypherCode

    Since it’s a new generation I expect more variety than usual. Interactions and types and all that kinds of stuff. :)

  • TiredOfMyOldUsername

    New form for Mew lol

    • Renaldi Saputra

      Majin Mew?

  • KHSoraKeyBlade

    Hopefully a new trailer with a bunch of new pokemon are shown.

  • Solomon_Kano

    New type, new type, new type, new type…

    Alternately, I’d love to see who we’ll be up against in X/Y in terms of villains.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      Team ________
      something related to galaxy things

      • Solomon_Kano


        There’s already a galactic team. I mean, they were even called Team Galactic.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          rocket, plasma, galactic are kind of galaxy things IMO
          so it’s possible

          • Solomon_Kano

            Aqua/Magma isn’t though. I suppose Plasma could be looked at as space-related, but it’s primarily one of the four states of matter (which is where the space connection comes, as stars are made of plasma).

          • Renaldi Saputra

            yep.. magma and aqua are the exceptions..
            but mostly it will be named with something like Team Helios, Team Andromeda, Team Halley or else

          • Solomon_Kano

            Should be interesting to see what they end up being called.

          • Justin Perry

            Team Normandy -shot-

    • TiredOfMyOldUsername

      New type(s) would be nice, but i’m not sure we can expect any big announcement yet with still 5 months to go before the release.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Well, it says lots of new information, so we’ll see.

    • Sardorim

      There will be 3 teams!

      Team D
      Team N
      Team A

      • Solomon_Kano

        I’ll laugh if you’re right.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        or maybe team DNA & team RNA suits better

    • Justin Perry

      you people are conspiring to destroy the fragile balance of the current metagame huh?

      • Solomon_Kano

        Sure, yea.

    • AuraGuyChris

      Team Croissant.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Will it be localized as Team Crescent? lol

        • No, they’ll all speak in funny French accents. “Aha! Ze trainere with ze Pikacheau is headed right into our trap! Oui, oui.”

          • Solomon_Kano

            They’ll also have croissant-shaped mustaches.

  • YoshEE

    my guess would be: slyveon’s type, some new pokemon, and new enemy of organization.

  • NightzeroAX

    Sylveon’s type will most likely be Flying I mean Sylveon (Sylpheon) they sound similar. For those that don’t know what I’m talking about Sylph in certain games are usually associated with the wind for instance in Tales of Symphonia there’s a an enemy in that game named Sylph that uses wind attacks.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      even sylphymon is wind attribute

    • Suicunesol

      Why are there ribbons on Sylveon then?

      • Renaldi Saputra

        just an accessory maybe?

      • NightzeroAX

        Idk ask Ken Sugimori. My point still stands.

      • Kaitsu

        Why is there a dress on Gardevoir. Why does Jinx wear clothes? If you rip it, does it spew blood?

        • Suicunesol

          I meant that in the context of his question, not in general. >_> Ribbons = wind? That’s why it must be a new type.

          • Miss_Madness

            Then what about Jynx indicates that it’s Ice and psychic type?

          • Suicunesol

            Nothing. Jynx is supposed to be weird.

            But Eevee and its evolutions’ appearances are supposed to be reminiscent of various elements. Flareon has firey elements. Vaporeon has fins. Leafeon has leaves.

            It stands to reason that a flying type would have wings or feathers. Not ribbons.

          • Miss_Madness

            Ahh but the ribbons can be related to air and wind though. For example you have ever seen a ribbon dance before. Colorful ribbons that moving gracefully in the air guided by a single person.

    • Calamity

      Thought the same thing. Couldn’t imagine it being any of the other types left for Eevee, unless they made a normal evolution, haha. Definitely looking forward to Bug and Dragon when they come out.

    • I think flying is least likely it makes no sense. Normal/new type.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Lets hope for character customization, this time around.

    • I would love that.

    • Godman

      This 1000% of the way I’m crossing my fingers, even for just changing the clothes

    • Miss_Madness

      I would rather clothes custom and not full character custom

    • Draparde

      omg changing cloths would be awesome. tired of looking exactly like my friends when we battle XD

  • Oh hey, right on my birthday.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Since this is going to be a worldwide release and the news so far have been shared everywhere, it’s safe to say we’re getting a Mini Nintendo Direct the same day.
    Japan keeping the news for itself would be a disgusting violation to the “worldwide” norm.

  • confirm character creation pl0x.

  • Corocoro will likely leak before this and have all the news PS would have had so no need to worry about “19th” it will likely be 14 or 15 a couple days earlier. And I doubt “lots” means what most people think of as lots.

    • Ben Sylvia

      Yeah, if we’re lucky we might get TWO new Pokemon revealed XD

      • That would be better than nothing at least. I just want Sylveon’s type revealed already! >_>

  • Hinataharem

    Well, more specifically, new info is coming this wednesday vi CoroCoro, and the 19th is where all that info is shown in detail, maybe with trailers.
