The Pokémon Company to Announce a New Evolution Tomorrow

Posted by Orla Madden

Gotta reveal 'em all

To continue the never-ending hype surrounding Pokémon X & Y, The Pokémon Company has announced on its Twitter and Facebook pages that it'll reveal a never-before-seen evolution on the latter tomorrow, 25th September.

The company is keeping hush on the details, asking trainers to guess who the Pokémon could possibly be an evolved form of. The most recent Pokémon to steal the limelight was Aurorus, a Rock / Ice type 'mon evolved from Amura.

For even more news about the new entries to the series, we recently had the privilege to sit down with Pokémon X and Y's Director Junichi Masuda and Chief Designer Hironobu Yoshida to discuss the hotly anticipated title.

Are you looking forward to Pokémon X & Y's release? We can imagine that quite a lot of time will be spent in the Kalos region, just make sure to have your Max Potions on hand to boost your energy.

I hate to be cynical after having defended this game as Nintendo's equivalent to GTA5 as for its hype (while everything else was drowned by GTA's hype, no less), but... Nintendo really needs to make up for the 2D overworld with this one.

I hope Helioptile's evolution gets revealed. I know it's gonna have a baddonkey final evolution!



Justin83593 said:

Also, I think Helioptile will get its evolution released because Pancham, Fletchling, and Pancham all got evolutions, and Helioptile was revealed with all of them.

Tyrunt evolution has already been released. It's Tyrantrum. I hope is Helioptile's or Dedenne's evolution.

I honestly don't get why some people are so upset about the lack of a 3D overworld. I mean it's Pokemon, it's never been leaps and bounds ahead of other games graphic wise, but the game looks great for a Pokemon game and it's the gameplay that's kept me playing for the past 14 years. I personally like that I don't have to worry about holding my XL in some 'sweet spot' to get the full effect of the game. I don't think they have anything to make up for.

Another source has sent us a new set of information about X and Y. Like the last batch of leaks, consider all of this a rumor until Pokemon reveals it. Like our last source, some of this information is from memory, so it may not be 100% accurate. Again, please treat all of this with caution – even though we’ve been shown evidence to back up some of the information, we could still be falling for an elaborate trick. Time will tell!
To discuss this story, check out this forum thread.
Trusk is a Grass/Rock boar Pokemon with long green tusks coming out of its mouth. He is gruff, has grey skin, and features green leaf-like ears. It has an “adorable” pre-evolution with tiny tusks and a leaf at the end of its tail.
A Normal/Poison porcupine Pokemon named Quillom can be found quite early in the game in the forest. It has white skin with light purple quills. He has a Poison-type quill attack which damages and has a high chance of poison.
A Ghost-type spider Pokemon is found in caves. It is dark gray with blue spots and multiple light grey eyes. It has a feint light blue mist around its abdomen. The source doesn’t remember the spelling of its name, but says it was something like “Apparachnid.” He thinks it may have an evolution.
There is a Ground-type badger Pokemon that is dark brown with black stripes going up its face. It knows Slash and a new biting move.
Reconfirmation that Froakie’s final evolution is Water/Fighting. It looks similar to a poison dart frog. The dark blue now takes over its body almost entirely. There are a few even darker (almost black) spots on his sides and face and it gains more of the bubble foam around its neck and down the back. It’s also a bit bulkier. It uses its hind legs a lot and has kicking attacks.
Bunnelby evolves into a Ground/Dark type rabbit that is larger and much rounder. Its color scheme is reversed, with the dark brown now being the prominent color. It can be found in caves. It is useful because you can get it early in the game and use it to evolve Pancham into Pangoro.
Helioptile has an evolution. It is bipedal with a second yellow triangle on its face. Its ears become more jagged and it looks meaner. On its back are what look like spikes with jagged parts at the very top. It can learn a new attack called Thunder Roll, where it rolls up like a wheel and strikes the opponent.
Reconfirmation that Meowstic has a pre-evolution named Espurr. There is no gender differentiation until it evolves. It is mostly white, similar to the female version, with cuter eyes and a single puffy tail. It has a little patch of fur under its head (similar to its evolutions). The fur is dark blueish with little tufts of white in it.
Other Pokemon that are now Fairy-type: the Chansey evolution line, Dunsparce, the Clefairy line, and Togepi’s line.
Fairy Dust is a new move that will randomly cause either Paralysis, Poison, Sleep, or Burn.
Like Magneton, Wailmer is part of one of the Super Training Facility games.
Team Flare makes an appearance right at the beginning of the game. On the TV in your house, one of its members talks about fashion and how your Pokemon should match your style. Team Flare’s signature music has an eerie accordion sound to it in the opening sequence.
The outfit your character wears at the start is colored to match what you’ve set as your favorite color in your 3DS settings. It can be changed easily though.
The opening cinematic is in 3D. (Have to mention this since most of the game isn’t in stereoscopic 3D. ) It starts off with Yveltal’s cry, which wakes you up. You sit up in your bed. It then pans and there is a shot of your city. Yveltal’s shadow goes over it. After that there is some other shots of your town. You seem amazed that you saw Yveltal. It then shows generic in-game shots like you entering a forest with your friends, selecting your starter, running through a cave, etc. After that it shows Sycamore welcoming you. You are standing outside of his lab at the time, then he takes you inside. It then shows him showing you three Poke Balls which leads into a transformation video where it shows all three Kanto starters evolving to their final forms, and then the three of them Mega Evolving. It’s a really cool cinematic. The video ends with Yveltal flying with the sun behind him, leading in to the title screen. Team Flare is also shown at some point in the sequence.
On the title screen you can use the analog joystick on your 3DS to change the angle at which you see Xerneas/Yveltal.

@AlexSora89 I don't think so really.. because of the fact that I can only think of maybe two or three titles.. I would play in 3D rather than 2D.. and when you consider I have 10 titles.. that is saying something.. (70% okay just 2D really) the 3D adds somethings to the game.. I still say for instance that Zelda OOT is one of the most beautiful games I have ever played on a system.. but for that I can go through at least 2 titles where the 3D does nothing for the game as a whole.. so I don't think a 2D world is going to make a difference especially since your forgetting apparently it's Nintendo and the world 2D or 3D should look spectacular.. considering the system specs..



AlexSora89 said:

Fair enough, but I hate the fact that we can't choose whether to play the game with 3D or not.
I only hope the 3DS Smash Bros. actually comes out at all by now.



Plucky said:

My theory is that Talonflame being an evolution of Fletchling was just natural and right due to how Fletchling sounds like Fledgling, Fletchling and potentially Kindling.

To put it short, Talonflame has 3 stripes on its tail, and Fletchling has 1, obviously there must be one with 2 stripes to bridge the two. Im doubting it's a final evolution of a starter just because the starters were revealed in one batch, it would be a bit biased just to reveal one and not the other 2, even if they were thinking of spacing them out over 3 weeks until the game's release.

My bet is that the middle name is called Archivary (Archery, Aviary and Chivalry?) or possibly Avianary? (referencing to how fletching is for wooden crafts, but Avianary would refer to art of flying, eg Flying Battles or possibly + Luminary...something light related with astrology)



Megumi said:

Is it just me or ford anyone else kerp reading Aurorus as Arzuros? xD



Wonder_Ideal said:

@Happy_Mask - No way! I was going to guess that too! I guess insane great minds think alike I suppose.
Anyways, any X and Y news is always appreciated by me. Perhaps we will receive an evolved form of a Gen 1 Pokemon such as Pinsir. Who knows?



Skeet102 said:

it will be the dragon type eeveelution, helioptile evo, or maybe an older pokemon although that would probably be a mega evo.



WindWakerLink said:

Probably the other Eevee.... Think about it. Every time there has been a new Eevee evolution after original Red/Blue/Green, there have been two new Eevees... Espeon & Umbereon.... Leafeon & Glaceon.... Now it's Sylveon &....??? XD



BlatantlyHeroic said:

@AlexSora89 The fact that they're not using 3D allows them to make the game look a lot better as a whole. Without the 3D, they have more access to the power that the 3DS possesses, which means it will look a lot better than it would if it had the option of 3D.
