Recently, a few new Pokémon X and Y rumours have been flying around the internet and some not only seem very interesting but also very plausible! This information comes from a user who calls himself “Mr. XY” and was posted on an English speaking image board, claiming it to be real. Here is the list of the Pokémon that (apparently) will be in Pokémon X and Y!
4Chan is defiantly not the place to take rumours from in normal circumstances; however, the user went on to say that Nintendo will release a new Pokémon trailer in mid-March featuring a baby Pinsir and Heracross as proof of his legitimacy. The trailer is said to be coming out around the 15th of March and it will be interesting to see if this will come true!
One of the Pokémon on the list above is a evolution of the Pokémon Sableye, a theory that supports this new Pokémon has been fleshed out from an image of the new movie poster; it shows Mewtwo and extreme speed Genesect; in the bottom left are the cast and their Pokémon (not all of them but some of them) including Charizard; which returns this week in the Pokémon anime. What is odd is that behind Cilan and Ash is a random Sableye, this indicates that this Pokémon may have some relevance in either the movie and/or the anime and if it does, may even feature the supposed new evolution since newly relevant Pokémon are normally introduced this way (Sylveon was also hinted at in this manner which further gives this theory some weight).
Another rumour floating around is a complete list of the Gym Leaders and Elite Four for this new region:

The rumours and speculation are flying around fast and until Nintendo announce something else soon the will come on coming with more and more frequency. If there is anything to take away from this is the hope of a mid-March announcement, let’s get all these rumours and theories cleared up shall we?
Although, if I am honest, I would LOVE a Grass/Dragon and Bug/Dragon Pokémon! I really hope that is true!
More rumours, if and when they appear, will be brought to you soon so keep you eyes on VGU for more Pokémon X and Y information!
