Three Secret Pokémon Uncovered In Pokémon X And Pokémon Y

By Ishaan . November 1, 2013 . 9:00am

A persistent hacker that goes by the name Smealum has been digging through the code of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, and has uncovered three Pokémon that are not yet accessible, but whose assets and data are in the game. Take a look at them below.






Just how these Pokémon will be accessible is not yet known. (Thanks,

  • Front page spoilers FTW!

  • MrRobbyM

    It was bound to happen eventually.

  • Yohanan

    Volcanion: the cock ring pokemon, you are all welcome.

  • Volcanion looks pretty interesting. Fire/Steel?

    I wonder how these are supposed to be unlocked. Not all of them could be Legendary, could they?

    • Betrayer

      Speculation is that they’re event Legendaries like Darkrai and such from past gens.

    • Suicunesol

      Why not?

      • I don’t know. I’m just guessing randomly. :3

        • Suicunesol

          Their numbers are after Z. Event, mythical Pokemon have been coming last in the Dex for the past 15 years. That probably hasn’t changed.

    • Go2hell66

      i’m guessing rock/fairy

    • Vocalnion’s entry on Serebii said Fire/Water in teh initial leak.

      • …Huh. That’s new.

      • Go2hell66

        Wow fhese typings just get more and more broken

  • Go2hell66

    good cuz all the current fairy pokemon are pretty bad

    • NAH

    • My Azumarill or Sylveon would like a word…

      • Go2hell66

        Azumarill is ok, doubt sylveon will even make ou, its just a worse version of florges

  • If you read that article, apparently Latios and Latias have mega evos.

    • Armane

      Hoenn confirmed?!

    • Ferrick

      they look weird lol, or that’s just latios and latias’s long lost brother, latius

      • 100% TRUE SPOILER (Not really): Mega Latios/Latias is a single Pokémon that the two Jogress merge into.

        • So would you name the fusion-ha Latios or Latias?

          Maybe it’s LatiUS.

          • If ‘O’ was a masculine and ‘A’ a feminine ending for names, I’d go for the gender-ambiguous “E” XDDDDD

            Sorry. What little I know of Spanish… XD

          • Latieses…

          • KuroNathan


          • “Lateon” – the True Eon Pokémon.

            Oh wait, then the Eevee family will sue it. Drat.

          • Hunts Rattata

            I guess the only reason they haven’t sued the scales off Lumineon is that no one remembers it exists.

        • sd28

          lol jogress shinka

    • Renaldi Saputra
  • AuraGuyChris

    Kudos to you, Siliconera, for publishing unreleased Pokémon and pointing out that someone in the internet was able to hack 3DS games to find this.
    Oh, sweet front page spoiler, by the way. You’ll piss off many sensitive people this way.

    • I’m not pissed :D

    • Lynx

      Does the word secret not mean anything?

      What’s up with with everybody complaining about spoilers that they could easily ignore? Its only a recent thing too.

      • AuraGuyChris

        Dude. It’s hard to avoid something that’s on the top of the first page in this website if you are the kind of people who visit it daily or more than a few times in a day.
        Also, this is pretty much not expected.

        • Jrocy247

          Nah, it’s not hard. It’s more stupidity than it is hard…. Common sense tells you that if you don’t want to be spoiled, simply avoid it, not click on this article if seen. So you want to blame the spoiler that was revealed, blame yourself for clicking on it.

          • Kusabi

            Sorry, could you not see the picture of one of the three clearly visible on the front page of the site, sitting right next to the article? You don’t have to read the article to know you haven’t seen the thing.

          • But then he had a choice to click on the article or not. Looks like AuraGuyChris curiosity got the better of him.

          • Jrocy247

            Once again, it’s not hard to ignore it, it’s especially not hard enough to not click on the damn thing….How hard is that for people to do?

          • Chido55

            I have been spoiled!
            Gonna click the link so I can be spoiled properly, with details and shit <3

    • Pfh, I read through the entire spoiler Pokémon list before I even bought the game. Come at me! (The spoilers, that is.)

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        I do too. the XY way is better

    • Go2hell66

      i think the headline is enough of a spoiler warning

      • InfectedAI

        There’s also a picture on the front page. Saw it before I knew what it was.

    • Jelly

      If you don’t like spoilers, may I question your visits on siliconera?

      • because siliconera usually doesnt spoil things…especially in the article’s thumbnail…

    • Ferrick

      you do know that this had been happening since the yellow era right ?
      And to boot, it’s just pokemon, what’s there to spoil ? the story ? don’t make me laugh, it has been the same throughout the whole series.

      • Suicunesol

        What are you talking about? >_> He’s clearly talking about the event Pokemon. Not the plot. >_>

        • Ferrick

          what i’m saying is that there’s basically no way to get spoiled in pokemon, even if it’s an event pokemon, it’s been like this since yellow, and no one complained back then, so why the hell are you all going “OH NOEESSS [site name] HAS SPOILED ME ON THE NEW POKEMONSSSSS” this time ?

          • Suicunesol

            Maybe I’d like to see Nintendo itself reveal a Pokemon for a change? I mean, a real reveal. Not like “A new Pokemon announcement? We’ve already known about it for the past two years, move along…” as we’ve had for the last fifteen years. Maybe Nintendo has something special planned, and knowing about the Pokemon beforehand would damper the excitement.

            Maybe we were more lenient back then because there was a possibility that such event Pokemon might never be announced for the West. But with the advent of X/Y, that’s no longer a concern. It’s only a matter of time ’till these Pokemon are distributed somehow. So let’s be patient and wait for Nintendo to reveal them properly so we don’t have to sit through two, grueling years of knowing that they exist before we can actually catch one of them.

  • Carlos Luis Ayala

    Must be the paid DLC they’ve been talking about.

    • Or compatibility for future titles (read: Genesect data in B/W being used for B/W2).

      They said they were against DLC so I doubt it’s that.

      • Landale

        They’re against paid DLC. They’ve been doing DLC since before DLC was even a thing, that’s all their event Pokemon have ever been.

        • Armane

          It’s even worse than DLC, because usually you can’t even download the unlock unless you head to a store/event.

          • J_Joestar

            there is always an online release too for some of these. I mean, you can get a Torchic + Blazikenite without going to a store.

          • Armane

            Just like Gen V’s event legendaries, right?

        • Sean ‘Geg’ Reddie

          Pokémon Mystery Dungeon disagrees with this statement. I doubt they’ll bring it to the main series, though.

  • dracometeo

    Diance(Fairy/Rock) = Looks like the stone from Anistar City

    Volcanion(Fire/Water) = Dessert event? Because that thing on the back looks like a turbine to generate electricity

    Hoopa(Ghost/Psychic) = Chamber of Emptiness?

  • Suicunesol

    …You really should not put a picture of one of them on the front page since some people do not want to see them.

    • ( `Д´)ノ)`ν゜)

      That’s the second article in two days now. Wonder if this is going to become a trend.

      • Grape Monet

        It’s already a regular thing. Siliconera has done this for years.

    • InfectedAI

      Yeah, first Attack on Titan spoilers now this. I’m starting to lose trust in SiliconEra. I don’t want to go to a site that may have spoilers on the front page. Kotaku lost many readers when they spoiled one of the Batman games, you’d think SE would learn from that.

    • Wait what

      Every time I post about how spoilers for Lightning Returns are all over the front page all the time I get 20 downvotes. Can someone explain how this is different? :/

      • Suicunesol

        Spoilers for Pokemon and spoilers for plot are two different things, I guess.

        • Zoozbuh

          ….Spoiling the plot of a game should be a lot worse because it ruins the whole experience. Who cares if you see new Pokemon, lol? I really don’t understand how that counts as “being spoiled”

          • Suicunesol

            Nevermind. >_> I don’t expect you to understand at this point. Pokemon is about discovering new and unusual creatures in tall grass–not the plot. Nobody really plays Pokemon for the plot. There was a time when you really had no idea what was going to pop out of the tall grass, and I’d really like to return to that age.

            And what do you mean “who cares”? Obviously there are people who care otherwise we wouldn’t be having this conversation. I see people throwing around “who cares” as some kind of argument when the only thing it proves is your own lack of care.

          • Zoozbuh

            Woah sorry, I didn’t mean to offend you (even though something seems to have hit a nerve.) I just meant PERSONALLY I value the plot in a game a lot more than Pokemon designs… I understand what you’re saying, but at this point if you still expect to go into a Pokemon game completely blind, you’re a tad naive. For the first two generations fair enough, but I still don’t think Pokemon is a game you can really “be spoiled” significantly…. Just my opinion. And I admit the ‘Who cares’ wasn’t particularly helpful.

          • Suicunesol

            Nah, I wasn’t really offended. But I did want to address “who cares” because it’s a careless thing for anyone to say and really doesn’t help. I think it’s generally an offensive phrase.

            I value the Pokemon designs waaaay more than plot. If that wasn’t true for many other people, then we wouldn’t have people hacking the game and spoiling themselves to see what they look like years before their official release. :)

            I also think going into Pokemon blind is not really possible at this point because news it just so widespread nowadays. But that doesn’t stop making me wish for it.

          • Anesia Hunter

            I think I might be one of the few people who actually like playing through the pokemon storylines. (I didn’t even mind Team Flare once it made sense.) As for pokemon reveal spoilers I just find it pure silly, since it’s really no big deal, since all that’s known is the design and maybe even typing. As for base stats, level up, TM and tutor move pools are usually a mystery.

  • riceisnice

    So I haven’t been keeping up but this means the 3DS has been hacked, right?

    • LuffyPanda15

      no, but the code of 3ds games has been able to be looked through for a long time.

    • Greg

      Pokemon X/Y was hacked, not the 3DS.

  • ocaritna

    Maybe we’ll get these from the other 3 doors at power plant thingy ?

    • Wait, those still can’t be opened? I forgot to go back to those after the Power Plant quest, but I thought they could be opened at one point or another.

      • ocaritna

        AFAIK yes they can’t be opened, I came back there to hunt gibles after becoming champ and check the other 3 doors (i even came back to the power plant that we have to get rid of flare team too in case i miss something) but nothing happened.

  • SauriansMaster!!

    is it too early to cry ‘on disc DLC’?

  • Too bad the story behind this is actually pretty terrible.

    Basically, the original person who uncovered this information (who is probably the one noted in the article, I didn’t look very hard cause I really don’t want to be spoiled.) did it for the purposes of getting more general information out of the game for sites like Veekun. And when they discovered the legendaries, their intention was for the news to only be in a couple IRC channels, and they were in the middle of discussion with people, including the one who runs Serebii, about whether or not they should post it.

    … and then someone took the pictures and spammed them up all over Facebook and Tumblr and the sort, without the consent of the guy who even found the Pokemon. I guess in this case, the guy who actually did find them decided to go ahead and give Serebii the okay to post them, because at least then it’d be from a source that found them in the first place.

    • Jesse

      Huh. Good thing I decided to wait until Serebii mentioned it themselves and Siliconera reported on it to share this stuff on Tumblr. D=

      • Yeah, good thing on you. Needless to say, the guys who didn’t want this spread before a decision was made were pretty mad about this ordeal.

    • Even then, it would have eventually leaked out. Consider that we knew about Genesect a while before it actually made any difference anyways (was originally in B/W, ended up only releasing in B/W2).

      So even if the data is there for it that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will ever exist in the games. It may be there for compatibility reasons once the next games in gen 6 make their approach.

      • Probably, though I think the problem with this situation is less the fact that things got spoiled at all (though I’m particularly on the side of trying to remain unspoiled as much as humanly possible, but that’s my own choice and my own effort to make)– it’s the fact that the stuff was basically spread without actual consent, and it made it difficult for people to avoid it as a result who wanted to avoid it.

        I mean, if you spent a lot of work on trying to find something, and then someone else who doesn’t have much of a clue of what went into it put it up, you’d probably get kinda annoyed, too.

        • There are some who take consent as a “suggestion” and believe that you (the hacker, translator, whatever) are already disregarding the wishes of the original creator and thus have no right to complain about others breaking your consent <_<

          I'm not sure where to begin…

          • No offense, but you worded that comment super weird to me.

            To note, I’m completely uninvolved in this situation and how it went down, so saying “you” in terms of this is sorta weird.

          • Oh, I’m sorry >< I meant it as a generic sort of "you." I didn't mean to offend you m(._.)m

          • It’s okay! I figured that was the case, but it took me a bit to wrap my head around how it was worded regardless, so I figured it’d be better to point it out. XD

            But as a note, yeah, sometimes things could be backwards. I at least think that a person should get their word in though if they put in the effort in the first place.

      • Keksus

        Leaking Pokémon could become hard. These Pokémon are already on the cartridge. But X / Y is patchable. So basically this means Gamefreak could patch in new Pokémon if they want.

        • Except then you’d have to make sure that people getting old copies of Pokemon have the patch because otherwise you’d have glitcherific effects by doing just that. In the means of dev, it’s better to have it already in the game and locked away than patching it in later, especially in a series like this that will see more later down the road.

          • Keksus

            Wouldn’t be the first game that tells you “Your version is not up to date. Please download the patch before using the online functions”

          • Think about local play. Unless it’s doing patch checking.

          • Keksus

            I guess it could tell you even then that the versions aren’t compatible or that your opponent is using Pokémon which aren’t compatible to your version. It would just have to check your team and the battle box anyways. Also local play goes through the PSS like online play. This wouldn’t be that much of a problem.

          • This would probably be more doable if Nintendo actually had an automatic patch interface.

            Right now, the only way you can do patches is if you go to the eShop manually and download them, and some people can not go to the eShop for various reasons.

          • Max

            For real? I don’t have a 3DS (yet) but that is really frustrating.

          • When I say “various reasons” I more mean on the point of like, “not buying digitally”, or “don’t have an internet connection”, or “don’t have money”. Things like that.

            I mean, I can generally avoid even going into the eShop for weeks since I don’t usually have the money to put into it, or there’s nothing I really feel I need to get during the weekly releases, so things like updates can slip by pretty easily.

        • Sadly, like it was mentioned below, that’d probably be kinda hard.

          Honestly, in this situation, the Pokemon that’ve been leaked are probably incomplete, or have placeholder information. The pieces might all be in the game, but it’ll still need the official information from Nintendo to be put together, as it were.

          I do doubt though that Gamefreak would add in a Pokemon arbitrarily. The most that they might do is hold off on these Pokemon until the next game, and that they might only be in there for compatibility.

    • chibidw

      Ehh, I disagree on the consent part – why would his consent really be
      needed? Screenshots of things that aren’t really his intellectual
      property, and he didn’t do anything transformative to it to put it under
      a copyright of his own.

      Yeah, it could be annoying if you wanted
      to keep it a secret, but the idea that it needs some sort of
      benediction is not really applicable. It’s a screenshot. Of
      copyrighted material that the person who took the screenshot has no
      rights to either. If anything, Nintendo/Game Freak are the ones that have the right to get mad here.

      • It’s reasonable to figure that, but it’s more that the guy put in the work to find the information. I do agree somewhat on your point, but it’s still an irritating factor that someone went ahead and put them up anyway.

        I mean, either way, yes, Game Freak/Nintendo are the ones who’d get mad about this. I mean, I expect they’ll be releasing these anyway, be it in XY or the upcoming game, but situations like this definitely harm the company/consumer relationship.

      • While it is not the finder’s intellectual property, nevertheless taking credit of someone else’s work is an unethical move which is why we see the complaints.

    • Max

      What I’m interested in is, are these hidden Pokemon meant for DLC or just part of another sequel /superior version of the X/Y games?

      • This is something people gotta wait to figure out. Like it got mentioned above, people knew about Genescet due to similar efforts during BW’s run, but we didn’t even get an event until BW2.

  • Lemski07


  • Godman

    lol GTS spoiled these pokemon weeks ago
    At least now I know how they look like :/

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      seen Hoopa on the most wanted GTS list last week

  • jugss

    I like Diancie and Volcanion designs. Hoopa looks like an evil genie.

  • Raltrios

    For god’s sake, I’m tired of hearing about this. Every website I got to has been spamming up newsposts and forums with this. It would be nice if the rumours stayed there rather than being spread to respectable websites where facts are reported.
    Wouldn’t releasing hacking/spoiling newsposts like this hurt relationships between the site and Nintendo?

  • J_Joestar

    I wonder how much heat and pressure you have to put on Carbink to get a Diancie…

  • grayson gee

    There is still one more, Conflagrion

  • Rogerrmark
  • KuroNathan

    In addition to the three new legendary two new mega Pokemon were revealed on serebii
    Meg latias and latios (note the names despite looking exactly the same)

  • Nintendo worked really hard to arrange a worldwide release and to keep the game under wraps until release day–that was spoiled. And now the game’s secrets are being uncovered ahead of time, too.
    I was actually looking forward to us not knowing everything about the games, to have that certain air of mystery that existed back in the GBC days.
    I guess it just isn’t possibly with the internet and modern day technology.

    • brian

      You could avoid the internet completely?

      • Suicunesol

        For the entire length of time until those event Pokemon are released? Ridiculous. Nobody can or wants to do that. You know it.

        • brian

          I should’ve specified particularly game news and Pokemon related stuff, maybe ask friends not to spoil it for them.
          The rest of the internet should be okay?

          • miju

            You’ll end up accidentally seeing them in something completely unrelated anyway. Or people around friends who did not hear your request.

          • Yeah, no one can avoid the internet forever. And even on Facebook, friends were always posting spoilers for X and Y. Tumblr was better about tagging spoilers (well, you can’t tag on Facebook at all) but I still had most of the new Pokemon revealed to me far ahead of time.

    • MrTyrant

      Their mistake is that these pokemon are on the “disc” so you might just download the dlc code instead of downloading new data that wasn’t present in the games file.

    • mike dickson

      it was spoiled by an idiot but there’s no point complaining about uncovered secrets i mean all the games were like that back in the day when i was a kid me and my best friend found out about missingno from a nintendo power like a 2 years after the games release imo u shouldn’t be bother by this if it bugs u stay away from the internet

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      yeah :/ it might be spoiled but that doesn’t make me want it even Less

  • I like Diancie and Volcanion =^_^=

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    also seen some “other” Mega pokemon also and AZ’s “beloved”

  • Siliconera, why?!? I knew that this info was leaked, but i didnt expect you guys to show it… :X

  • Incognito

    Is… is Volcanion an onion ring Pokemon?

  • AverageGamers

    It’s not a surprise, considering we haven’t had any other Legendaries beside the X Y and er… Z in the game. It’s just not possible if they ‘ran out of legendaries’ like that. I’m sure these three will be introduced later, similar to Meloetta and Keldeo

    But seriously, Siliconera hesitated to post leaked ‘official’ Coro Coro scan but still posted a very unofficial leak hacked from the game?

    • Suicunesol

      Yeah, we know that. We know that there would be event legendaries. What is the surprise is what they are and what they look like.

  • Detrimont

    you forgot the Eon duo mega evolutions

    • Renaldi Saputra
      • Detrimont



        • Renaldi Saputra

          is the same :p

          • Detrimont

            except for eye colour and size(they only original difference is colour and size)

          • Renaldi Saputra

            nope, their size are more or less the same

          • Detrimont

            Latios is bigger… look again(just like he is in normal form)

          • Renaldi Saputra

            have you seen Sparrowmon in xros wars? I bet you haven’t

          • Detrimont

            yes(kind of a stupid accusation, seeing as you posted a pic of it above)

  • chroma816

    I’m still not 100% convinced.

    It’s hard to believe a guy who’s just like – “Yeah, I found them. Through my own special hack that you guys can’t do.”

    • Anesia Hunter

      the names are valid in the GTS.

      • chroma816

        Oh, I don’t doubt the names – I remember when we (the fandom) was first hearing about them.

        That said, I don’t trust that these are the actual pokemon attributed to the names.

  • Renaldi Saputra
    go home sparrowmon, you’re drunk, you must have been using Random Laser

  • Diancie kooks like A Carbink Evo

  • hickorypan

    Why were they on the cartridge to begin with? They should’ve been added in a patch to prevent this from happening.

  • artemisthemp

    Most likely gonna be available via Mystic Gift and they are most likely connect to next Pokemon Movie (17)
