Nintendo has announced a host of new details about Pokemon X & Y, including the fact that you'll be able to transfer your monsters from Black & White and Black & White 2 into the upcoming game.

In today's Pokemon Direct, it was revealed that you'll be able to use a feature called the Poke Transporter to upload your captured 'mon to your personal Pokemon Bank, where you will be able to download the ones you want. The slight downside is that the Pokemon Bank requires the download of a premium app to use, meaning this service will cost an annual fee.

Elsewhere in the Direct, Game Freak's Junichi Masuda announced that the three new starter Pokemon, Chespin, Froakie and Fennekin won't be the only ones you can select when you begin your adventure. Players will also be able to choose between the original stater Pokemon of Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle, each of which have a final Mega Evolution that can be unlocked: Mega Venusaur, Mega Charizard and Mega Blastoise.

Here is the full list of Mega Evolutions. It was leaked quite recently, so we don't a confirmation on whether it is real or not.

I'll check Serebii.net. It's pretty nuts that they have so many mega evolution.

Those are actually some surprisingly solid choices. Going with all the starters was a no-brainer, and I was hoping for Alakazam and Gengar so that's cool. I hadn't even considered Machamp (maybe even MORE arms?!), Lapras or Dragonite. Can't wait to see how Salamence, Metagross, and Zebstrika turn out as Megas, too.

Celebi is the most surprising one. I thought Mewtwo would be the only "Legendary" Pokémon to Mega-evolve. It kind of made sense, since Mewtwo is genetically modified. I wonder if this is the final list or if they'll add more.

That's assuming of course that this leaked list is real. Looks pretty legit to me.

Pokémon - Type ChartPokémon XY Anime
  • The stage 2 evolutions of the new starters have been revealed. Pure grass, fire, and water, but Fennekin learns Psycho Cut, supporting the rumor that the stage 3 evos will be grass/dark, fire/psychic, water/fighting.
  • The two new fossilmon have been revealed. They are a rock/dragon t-rex and a rock/ice diplodocus or other long-necked dinosaur. The t-rex's ability is "hard jaw," which boosts the power of biting attacks like crunch or fire/ice/thunder fang. The diplodocus' ability is "freeze skin," which boosts the power of ice-type moves, and changes the typing of its normal-type moves to ice-type.
  • Straight up new Pokemon have been revealed. The first is a fluffy dog-like pokemon, normal-type. It has the ability "Fur Coat," which reduces incoming physical damage. You can also customize its appearance in some way. I bet it's hairstyles.
  • The second is a psychic-type cat whose movepool changes depending on gender. The male is geared more toward a support role, and the female for an attack role.
  • The second form of Mega Mewtwo has been revealed. It is psychic/fighting, and has "steadfast" as its ability. The two forms are exclusive to either version, this new one appearing in X, the older one appearing in Y.

@Acura_Max: So glad they made an alternate Mega Mewtwo, that one looks much more acceptable to me. Since this one is Psychic and Fighting, do we know what the secondary type of the other Mega Mewtwo is?

Wonder how this one will fit into the anime, if at all...

The Pokemon Company has revealed Pyroar, an evolution of Litleo in Pokemon X and Y. Pyroar is a fire and normal-type Royal Pokemon with “a great mane of burning flames” whose abilities include Rivalry and Unnerve.

According to The Pokemon Company, Pyroar can learn the Normal-type move Echoed Voice, "which makes its power grow with every turn. Its power will increase even if other Pokémon use it, so try Echoed Voice out with your allies in Double Battles and Triple Battles to experience its real value.”

Pyroar evolves from Litleo, a Pokemon revealed in June with a new move for the series, Noble Roar, which lowers your target's Attack stat.

@Acura_Max: @Destinyheroknight:

Jesus Christ, I can't even keep up with the news.

Looks like they make poison types more better. In the past, poison types' attacks are super effective against grass and that was it. There was not much advantage using them in competitive battles. They made steel types less resistant. There goes my wall strategy. I didn't think Dragon was overpowered. Most dragon pokemon was weak to ice because of their dual type nature, flying or ground. The Pokemon whose dual type has no weakness in the past was ghost and dark.

Yeah, it is a lot of news

But it doing it job making me hype about the new game (can't wait to play it)

Post by takashichea (14,309 posts) See mini bio Level 25


What version are you getting? I'm getting Y because I didn't find the legendary deer pokemon beautiful or impressive.

Post by Bigheart711 (4,204 posts) See mini bio Level 21

I almost fainted after looking at all this news. Makes me glad that I pre-ordered Pokemon Y in full. I'm also surprised that the typings for Poison are better while the Fairy type is damn near OP. XD

Post by takashichea (14,309 posts) See mini bio Level 25


Awesome, you're getting Pokemon Y, too. Join the Y club. Yeah, Poison type got better.

Take that Oh wait, I need Kelleth for trading to complete the pokedex. We need each other to complete that bond, X and Y. Oh crap, I almost did an innuendo there.


It's Simba!

@takashichea: lol well count me out for trading because I am buying the games first and the 3DS XL somewhere in April.

Also does any one know if with Pokemon Bank the on-game pc system has been removed? I am kinda worried about when I don't have Wi-Fi or when I don't care to pay 5 euro's a year.

The Pokemon Company will soon reveal some big news. Tune in tomorrow to this thread to get the dets!

Post by Acura_Max (2,431 posts) See mini bio Level 13

Well, it's not exciting news. It's more like a contest. On the Pokemon Promo site, you have to figure out a code to unlock what's inside the pokeball. Once you get the code, it could mean that you could win prizes such as a 3DS XL and copies of the new game. To find the code, you have to watch this video very closely. Supposibly the code is hidden somewhere in the video.
