Some Of Pokémon X And Pokémon Y’s Exclusive Pokémon Revealed


CoroCoro magazine has revealed the next round of details on Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, reports. This week’s reveals include information on a number of new as well as previously-announced Pokémon.


For starters, CoroCoro reveals the element types of the games’ two legendaries—Xerneas and Yveltal. Xerneas is Fairy-type, while Yveltal is Dark/Flying.


Meanwhile, the previously revealed Pancham has a bold evolution—he evolves into Goronda (Japanese name), which is a Fighting/Dark-type Pokémon.


Entirely new Pokémon are part of this week’s reveals, too. Pokémon Y has an exclusive bird Pokémon called Shushup (Japanese name), which is again a Fairy-type. Meanwhile, Pokémon X gets a puff ball Pokémon named Peropuff. This, too, is a Fairy-type Pokémon. Two more exclusives are Clauncher (to Pokémon X) and Skrelp (to Pokémon Y).


Finally, there’s a squid Pokémon named Maika (once again, Japanese name, as with all the new reveals above). Maika is a Dark/Psychic-type, and evolves into Karamanero.
