The latest issue of Japanese magazine, CoroCoro, has begun to leak and brought with it a lot of news to do with Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. We have a number of new Pokémon, including the second stage evolutions for the three Kalos starters, along with some details on the Fairy Type, Team Flare and much more! If you wish to know more then read on.
Starting off with what could be considered the biggest news to come from the CoroCoro leaks, we now have the second stages of Fennekin, Chespin and Froakie.
First off we have Hariboogu who evolves from Chespin, it keeps Chespin's Grass typing and knows the move Mud Shot. Next we have Teerunaa who evolves from Fennekin, keeps the Fire typing and knows the move Psycho Cut. Last up we have Gerogashira who evolves from Froakie, keeps the Water typing, and knows the move Bounch.
Next up we have a group of a new Kalos Pokémon! On the top left we have Torimian who is a Normal Type Pokémon and was first seen in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y themed Pokémon Direct recently. Interestingly enough players can choose a few different hairstyles for the Pokémon.
On the bottom left we have Nyaonikusu who is a Psychic Type cat-like Pokémon and looks different depending on the gender of the Pokémon. Its stats and movepool are different based on the gender too, the female version is better at fighting while the male is better for support moves.
On the top right we have Chigorasu who is one of the Kalos regions fossil Pokémon. It's a Rock and Dragon Type Pokémon and has the new ability Hard Chin which powers up moves which use fangs such as Bite and Crunch.
On the bottom right we have the second of the Kalos regions fossil Pokémon, Amarusu, who is a Rock and Ice Type Pokémon. Amarusu also has a new ability called Freeze Skin which can change Normal Type attacks into Ice Types.
Next up we have two new Mega Pokémon. The first is another Mega Mewtwo, this one goes by the name of Mega Mewtwo X and sees the Pokémon become a Fighting and Psychic Type, it has the ability Steadfast. Apparently the two Mega Forms of Mewtwo are version exclusives, and Mega Mewtwo X can only be obtained in Pokémon X.
Next up we have Mega Garchomp who is a Ground and Dragon Type Pokémon with the ability Sand Force.
A few more details to do with Team Flare have been revealed, we now know that the group has a set of five scientists, Kuseroshiki, Momiji, Bara, Akebi, and Corea. The groups goal is to create a beautiful world.
Finally, we have an updated Type chart which reveals more about the Fairy Type and a few other changes made. We now know that Fairy is super effective against Dragon, Fighting and Dark types, while it's not very effective against Fire, Poison, and Steel Types. Fairy is immune to Dragon attacks, resistant to Fighting, Dark and Bug, and weak to Poison and Steel type attacks.
The Type chart also seems to show that Steel has lost its resistance to Dark and Ghost Type attacks.
