Lets not waste any time and jump into what new information we have about Pokémon X and Y!
As you can see in this scan we are shown four new Pokémon. The first (on the bottom right) is a new Diplodocus fossil Pokémon called Amarusu which is Rock/Ice type with the new ability “Freeze Skin” turns normal type moves that hit it into ice-type moves, it can also learn Aurora Beam. The next (on the top right) is the other T-rex fossil Pokémon called Chigorasu which is Rock/Dragon type and has a new ability called “Hard Jaw” which increases the power of Biting moves. Lastly, remember the llama Pokémon? Well, it is not a llama at all! It’s the white dog Pokémon called Torimian (on the top left) which is Normal-type and has a new ability called “Fur Coat” which reduces physical damage and according to the scans, with “trimming” you can change the Pokémons appearance using salons in the Kalos region, it can also learn a new Fairy-type move called “Round Eyes”. Lastly, we have Psychic-type cat called Nyaonikusu (on the bottom left) which has a different appearence and movesets based on its gender, Male (on the left) being more defensive and Female (on the right) being more offensive. Its ability can either be Keen Eye or Infiltrator.
Next up we have a new Mega Mewtwo, Mega Mewtwo X! This one is Psychic/Fighting-type and has the ability Steadfast. To get this form of Mewtwo, it needs to be holding a MewtwoniteX (while the previous Mega Mewtwo needs MewtwoniteY). This new Pokémon is exclusive to Pokémon X and the previously revealed Mega Mewtwo, Mega Mewtwo Y will be exclusive to Pokémon Y.
Now we have the introduction of Mega Garchomp. This Mega Pokémon is still a Ground/Dragon-type but has the ability “Sand Force” in this form. It also looks pretty amazing!
(UPDATED WITH SCAN)
The scans also revealed the evolutions of the starter Pokémon:
- Chespin evolves into “Haribooga” and can learn Mudshot (as seen in that possible leaked list of new Pokémon)
- Fennekin evolves into “Teerunaa” and can learn Psycho Cut
- Froakie evolves into “Gerogashira” and can learn Jump
Its is also worth noting that they all stay as one type (Grass, Water and Fire respectively) in their second stage evolutions and that Teerunaa is seen standing on its back legs.
