Litleo is a Fire and Normal-type that comes with a new move for the series, Noble Roar, which lowers the target's Attack stat, while Flabebe knows Fairy Wind, an attack that's especially potent against Dragon-types. Finally, Scatterbug is a new Bug-type that evolves into Spewpa.

ANN's article on the Mewtwo OVA

The brand-new two-hour anime special Mewtwo ~Kakusei e no Prologue~ (Mewtwo: Prologue to the Awakening) will premiere on Japan's TV Tokyo channel on July 11 at 7:00 p.m. The special will be broadcast along with the television premiere of the 2012 film Pokémon the Movie: Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice.

The special's story is connected to the Gekijōban Pocket Monster Best Wishes! Shinsoku no Genosekuto: Myuutsū Kakusei (Pokémon the Movie: ExtremeSpeed Genesect: Mewtwo's Awakening) film, which will open in Japan on July 13. The original story is set before Mewtwo meets Pokémon franchise protagonist Satoshi (Ash) and his friends in the upcoming film's storyline. It will focus on Mewtwo's history, goals, and how it became the strongest Pokémon.

The former AKB48 idol Atsuko Maeda is serving as "program navigator" host for the special. Maeda is also narrating the upcoming film's accompanying Pikachu short "Pikachu to Eevee Friends."

Kunihiko Yuyama's feature film is billed as the final chapter of Pocket Monsters: Best Wishes! (Pokemon: Black and White!). It will have a confrontation between the legendary Pokémon ExtremeSpeed Red Genesect and Mewtwo, who returns in this installment in an alternate form. The main feature's special guest cast includes veteran voice actor Kouichi Yamadera (Red Genesect), actress Reiko Takashima (Mewtwo), and Takashi Yoshimura and Kenta Tokui of the comedy duo Heisei Nobushikobushi (Eric and Geodude/Ishitsubute from Pokémon Hills). Yamadera and Masachika Ichimura voiced Mew and Mewtwo, respectively, in Pokemon: The First Movie.

Just watched the The Fires of a Red Hot Reunion! episode.

It was interesting to see that Tracey and Misty had a cameo but no spoken lines. Charmander's voice changed a bit. The battle between Charizard and Dragonite is exciting but a bit short. N and Cilan got a bit annoying when saying the same stuff we could just interpret from the Ash's flashbacks.

Oh, Ash just use his pokedex on Charmander. It should have been Iris who do the pokedex thing since she had mistaken Charizard for a dragon type.

@takashichea: Does Ash have alzheimer's or something? Why would he need to look up Charmander? He had one!

  1. I'm not sure. It's been a long time since I have seen Pokemon
  2. The newest region is called the Kalos Region. (Source)

@Acura_Max:

Oh no, it was rhetorical question. Man, I did a bad job at it. We have six regions in Pokemon. Back at the time, I thought Pokemon would do north, south, east, west resulting in 4 regions. I don't know if they did a combined map of the Pokemon world with all the regions. The guys at Game Freak and Nintendo should do a Pokemon book like how they did it for Legend of Zelda, the Hyrule Historia.

Pokemon started back in 1996, so it's been 17 years. I'm thinking that they will run until they reached 30 years old. The other franchises, Mario, Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and Kirby, have all reached past 25.

Wow, Viz Censor for Pokemon Adventures Ruby & Sapphire is so funny and dumb at the same time

They edit out Norman punching Ruby (it was replace by a random lightning strike). But it ok for Norman to be kicking poor Marshtomp (N would be outrage LOL!)

@takashichea: You mean by how many episodes? Don't forget the side adventures. Orange Island. After Hoenn or Sinnoh didn't Ash go on another mini adventure?

@Supreme Marvel: I was wondering how many years or seasons will Pokemon go? Right now, this is their 6th region. I lost count of how many seasons. There are about 700 episodes, I think.

@takashichea: Possible go on for a long time. Unless they had an idea to finish it on 1000 episode or something? Japan don't seem to be that sentimental with numbers like that. It's a multi-billion dollar industry. They'll keep making them as long as they keep making money. Every generation gets into them. Some of my friends have just go into this generation while a small margin of my friends (myself included) were in it from the beginning.

It's near 800 episodes now. :)

The types of Pokemon X and Y's legendary catches have been revealed, alongside Professor Augustine Sycamore, who challenges players to battle, the nefarious Team Flare, and two new gym leaders, Grant (a jock) and Clemont (a science nerd).

Legendary Pokemon Xerneas is a Fairy-type. Its exclusive move, Geomancy, "features rainbow-colored light that erupts from the earth around it," while its Fairy Aura buffs all other Fairy Pokemon in battle.

Yvetal is a Flying Dark-type Legendary Pokemon, with an Oblivion Wing attack that fires "a powerful beam of red light that scorches the ground below." The Dark Aura ability boosts Dark Pokemon stats.

Also revealed today are O-Powers, multiplayer-enabled specialties with important single-player effects.

O-Powers "allows players the ability to easily power up Pokémon in their party and provides other benefits." You can share these powers with other online or local players to, for instance, "increase a Pokémon’s stats, while others make it easier to catch wild Pokémon or increase the Experience Points gained in battle."

In addition, The Pokemon company has detailed the skills, exclusivity, and traits of six more Pokemon, including Malamr, Swirlix, Spritzee, Inkay, Pangoro, and Clauncher. Check out their full, official details below.

  • Players will encounter Inkay in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. This Dark- and Psychic-type Pokémon has the ability to drain other Pokémon’s will to fight by flashing the transmitters above its eyes—giving Inkay the opportunity either to attack its foes or to hide from them. It’s said that the flashing emitted from Inkay’s transmitters can also be used to communicate with its friends. Inkay can learn a new Dark-type move, Topsy-Turvy, a tricky move that will reverse all of the stat changes that are affecting a target. For instance, if opponents increase their Attack and Defense stats during battle, it will suddenly come back to bite them when Topsy-Turvy is used.
  • The Dark- and Psychic-type Pokémon Malamar is the evolved form of Inkay and may have the strongest hypnotic force of any known Pokémon, helping it to bend opponents to its will. As a result, humans with ill intentions try to use Malamar to aid in their devious plots. Malamar can learn the Psychic-type move Hypnosis, which leaves opponents asleep and for the most part unable to take any actions during battle.
  • The Fairy-type Pokémon Swirlix, which can only be captured in Pokémon X, comes with the new Ability Sweet Veil that keeps Pokémon on the same team from being left asleep in battle. Use Swirlix when facing Double and Triple Battles featuring Pokémon that know moves like Hypnosis. Swirlix can learn the new Fairy-type move Draining Kiss, which does damage to a target while also restoring some HP to the user. Battles will be much easier when you can attack an opponent with Draining Kiss and restore your Pokémon’s health at the same time. Swirlix only eats sweets, causing its body to be sweet and sticky, like cotton candy.
  • Only available for capture in Pokémon Y, the new Fairy-type Pokémon Spritzee emits a unique fragrance that causes anyone who smells it to fall under its spell. Spritzee can learn the Grass-type move Aromatherapy, which causes a Pokémon to exude a relaxing fragrance that heals its allies’ status conditions, such as sleep and poison.
  • It is now known that the previously announced Water-type Pokémon Clauncher can only be captured in Pokémon X, and the Poison- and Water-type Pokémon Skrelp can only be captured in Pokémon Y.
