June CoroCoro Reveals New Pokémon and Rival Details
Posted by Dylan Newcome
Meet another Fairy type
The magazine shows four new Pokémon in total:
- Kofukimushi is a Bug type Pokémon that evolves into Spewpa, another Bug-type. Spewpa later evolves into Vivillon, the pink Bug / Flying type Pokémon we saw in yesterday's Nintendo Direct.
- Shishiko is a Fire / Normal type lion cub Pokémon. It learns a move called "Battle Cry" which lowers the opponent's Attack stat.
- Furabebe is a new Fairy type Pokémon who learns an as-of-yet unexplained move called "Fairy Wind". Furabebe finds a flower or plant, then protects it for the remainder of its life. It has been hinted that we may see Furabebe holding onto other plants in the game. It is the smallest and lightest Pokemon to date, standing at 0.1m tall and 0.1 kg.
Also revealed were the names of the rivals in Pokemon X & Y. If you choose a male avatar, your rival will be girl Serena, and if you choose a female avatar, your rival will be likely lad Callum. In addition to these rivals, there will be three other trainers who join you on your adventure. Sana, Tieruno and Toroba are all starting their journey on the same day as you from Asame Town, and you can expect to see them throughout your adventure. Two more characters were shown: Pansy, who is seen following the player character, and Hakudan City gym leader Viola, a master of Bug type Pokémon.
What do you think of the new Pokémon? Will you be raising any of them on your adventure?
