Wild Pokémon Appear! Aromatisse and Slurpuff Announced for Pokémon X & Y

Posted by Martin Watts

What the smell!?

Two new Pokémon have been revealed ahead of Pokémon X & Y's global release next week, and it seems that the sense of smell is a running theme with these two creatures.

Slurpuff, the evolved form of cotton candy Pokémon Swirlix, looks equally as pink and fluffy as its earlier form. However, its most impressive feature is that it possesses an incredible sense of smell, one which is actually 100 million times more sensitive than that of humans. Using this ability, it can supposedly detect even the faintest of odours.

The other new addition to the line-up is Aromatisse, the evolved form of Spritzee. This Pokémon is different from Slurpuff in that it can emit a variety of different smells, ranging from extremely pleasant to downright horrid. This ability will prove beneficial in battle, as it enables Aromatisse to attract or repel opposing Pokémon. We imagine that Slurpuff — with its heightened sense of smell — won't want to cross a battle-ready Aromatisse any time soon.

Will either of these new Pokémon be making it into your squad? Let us know in the comments section below.

I hope not a lot of the Fairy types are going to be this lame. Why can't we get more wicked Fairy types like Xerneas?



Morpheel said:

The candy one is fine, but the bird thing.... Ugh. Never liked the preevo either so whatever.



DarkKirby said:

When you guys n' gals see Goomy you will forgive these other designs.

Although the final evolutions of the starters have received a lot of... strong dislike.



NintyMan said:

Surely these two prissy Pokemon are a nod toward the stereotypical rich culture of France? They're inspired by smell and perfume respectively...



Weedy said:

Wait... there's a new Pokemon game coming out, why haven't I heard anything about this before?!!! ;p

Yay a cake Pokemon! Actually, it seems to be a cross between a cake and a stereotypical French chef uniform?

@DarkKirby Really? I think the ninja looks cool.



Einherjar said:

To be honest, i kinda think that they are overdoing it quite a bit with X and Y. These new pokemon almost all look ridiculous, older pokemon get new evolutions left and right...
This is becoming more of a digimon thing.
Its not really "bad", dont get me wrong, it just feels a bit like jumping the shark a bit too often for me.



Gioku said:

I like 'em just fine. Not my favorites ever, but hey. They're alright.



sinalefa said:

Slurpuff over Aromatisse any day of the week, month, year, etc.


Did I read that right? When did they announce the final evolutions of the starters?



MixMasterMudkip said:

@sinalefa They were leaked from people with early copies. Along with a Flying/Fighting bird pokémon. To be honest i only really like Chespin's final evolution. The rest are... ehhh.



Ernest_The_Crab said:

@sinalefa They didn't announce them. Apparently, they've been leaked. The fire one has an in-game model so it's taken as legit, the other two don't seem to have models shown, just pictures.

Guys if you want to see more new pokemon check out this link :

Im not sure if im allowed to share links on here (if not sorry) but it is genuine and updates regularly with in game screens and new megalutions(gengar,aerodactyl,abonasnow man thing) and recently posted flabebe's first evolution , its so cute and it has a second evo he leaks as he plays so be patient and warning major spoilers



Blue_Yoshi said:

Version exclusive Pokemon tend to be very gimmicky and mediocre and this pair is no exception. While I have thought of grabbing a Swirlix before(its a pretty cool concept when you really think about it) I knew it would have nothing but a subpar evolution just like its big nosed counterpart.



Pod said:

Well it's nice to see that not all new pokémon designs are spikes, angles, and primary colors.



JimLad said:

Hahaha Slurpuff: The alcoholic Pokémon.
>Slurpuff missed!
>Slurpuff missed!
>Slurpuff missed!

Justaguest said:

Oh god.. what is this?! Isnt there a voting system? Cant believe theyd approve of something as hidious like Slurpuff



MixMasterMudkip said:

Once you guys see Goomy you guys will forgive these two for being lame. Goomy the best Drangon Pokémon ever!



Kit said:

Nooo. Yet another poorly drawn 'mon to be consigned to some dark corner of a Pokémon box.



LoveNinty said:
