Guys, I just found out how many pokemon have been revealed. First, take the ones we know about (39), and add the Mega Evolutions (I guess they count too.) (11) That adds up to 50.

Also I've found the origins of Honedge. His German name is Gramokles, which comes from Gram and Damoklesschwert(Sword of Damocles). Gram (as I recall) Was a sword owned by a king. One day the sword was shattered. As his final wish he asked his wife to rebuild the sword for their son. She did this(and after being reforged it could cleave an anvil in half) and gave it to her son, but later on Sigurd(the prince) abandon the sword in favor of a legendary sword called Balmung. This is also supported by the fact that this guys names usually involve words like one and single. So maybe the king's soul is in the sword?

The other part, Sword of Damocles Is the nickname for Damocles, a king usually depicted in fine linen (Like this Honedge's hand). So that's it for Honedge.

That may be the origin of the German name, but considering its Japanese name is Hitotsuki that's unlikely to be the inspiration for the monster itself.

This stuff is probably where the idea came from:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsukumogami

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_sword#Japanese

Also from the History section of that Magic Sword article:

"The Samurai of Japan believed that their swords had their own soul that could possess them. It was not the wielder but their swords that desired to kill; Samurai were just the instrument that the sword used to complete that task. Since most of them were Buddhists (a religion that finds violence and murder abhorent) that train of thought gave them some peace of mind in their killing vocation."

I wasn't asking what it meant, I was merely pointing out that since its original name is Japanese that it was most likely inspired by Japanese lore.

If the region is based on France why use Japanese lore? And besides Around the same time, the french name was revealed.
EDIT: Ya know what? This argument is dumb.

I know global link had something like that on their site for when it was your birthday. I just can't remember what it was though.

EDIT: yeah global link have you a togekiss for your birthday. I know because I got one. It was from 2010 on so maybe we will get something like that for X & Y on the global link site.

@firestarter2398: That's a strange thing to say, seeing as how, when the game comes out, we'll almost instantaneously have almost all information about it revealed to us, so I think that once we actually have the game, we'll know how to evolve Eevee into Sylveon, along with everything else! ;)

Not to mention, the game guide comes out at the same time. Serebii and other pokemon wikis will be flooded with updates and corrections on the release date, it may crash the internets! But on the more serious side, other than what I see the creators announce themselves, I just consider the rest ony speculation anyway, so even if someone did announce the method of evolving it, I wouldn't pay much heed.

Friend list is full, I will be clearing room for Bravely Default soon though. Colors! 3D Gallery, My Blog

@notshadowing. First, grammar! Second don't even try to "leak" cuz thaat was stupid. The only thing that might happen is Oorotto being called Ghostree

I wonder how many new pokemon there are this region. I've got eye set on 128-132 taking the nat dex to 777-781

First: I was joking. Based on my previous comments do you really believe I would stoop to such low grammar without reason? (And why do you of all people suddenly care about grammar?)

Second: I don't believe there will be any more than 725 pokemon, because the Gamestop description for the game says "Over 700 Pokemon"
and if there were any more, they would have said "Over 725 Pokemon".

Ew, that's creepy! That means they'd be adding hardly any! (compared to other generations) :O

Haha, I just found this old thread, that contained this link, which led to a whole bunch of rumors about X & Y. I think it's been debunked by now, simply because of this paragraph:

Heibai wrote:

Xerneas is Ice/Steel, and Yveltal is Fire/Dark. They have a unique ability where they can shift types with each other, Xerneas becoming red and Fire/Steel, and Yveltal becoming blue and Ice/Dark. Supposedly, Game Freak chose the typings in part due to members of the team being fans of R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, among other reasons.

It's still fun to look at old rumors, though, and see what people thought before there was very much information. :)

i was ina rush making that post but the grammar was alright just a mispelling and 2/3 missing words no big deal. i don't know if they'd say more than 725 because, and correct me if i'm wrong, sinnoh didn't say over 475

I think you might be on to something. I went back and counted all the Pokemon we know about, added for what evolutions they will probably have, and I got about 50. I don't think we know all the Pokemon, so I will retract my previous statement.
