"Rumours" to Laugh At

#1SoeroahPosted 2/24/2013 7:19:38 PM
The following is a list of "rumours" that have a very, very low chance of being in any way accurate (4chan), but hell, I like seeing discussion based on silly rumours anyway.

A few of these I find I'd actually enjoy if they were legit, but I wouldn't believe any of these.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Main characters are Jean and Jane; names are non-customizable

Trainer now appears in the bottom screen during battle, with a speech bubble interface holding the trainer commands inside

Trainers now have their own leveling system that affects how in-game NPCs react to you and grants various bonuses such as increasing capture rate and the rarity of Pokémon encountered

A new key item called the Whistle can be used once per battle with differing effects, such as waking up a Pokémon or snapping it out of confusion.

A bond level replaces the happiness meter from past games; higher bond levels grant bonuses such as experience or stat gain for Pokémon

Bond level bonuses and the whistle feature can be turned off in PvP matches for the benefit of competitive play

A new item called the Bond-EYE that resembles a pair of sunglasses allows players to view the nature of wild Pokémon and their capture rate

The Bond-EYE also allows players to see visual avatars of other players and send them messages or trade and battle requests; this feature, akin to the Miiverse function in Nintendo Land, will be the first of its kind on the 3DS

Wireless co-op is now possible, with one player being the leader and the other aiding in battle

Players not able to play cooperatively will be allowed to request aid from NPC trainers in their adventures via a juice bar located in every town

The PokéDex resembles a tablet with a 3D display that allows players to view Pokémon models, read full paragraph descriptions of them, hear their cries, view their locations, compare their sizes and weights with others, and read comments made by other trainers around the world about them

Excess money can be stored in banks that grant interest and special gifts upon depositing certain amounts

Using a special wristwatch device, players can travel 30 years into the past which features different characters, younger versions of current characters, different layouts, and different wild Pokémon

The rival faction is Team Gear whose members wear purple bodysuits with black clock hands on them; they mess with events in the past that affect the present

In one part of the game, you must catch a Munchlax in the past to clear the road of a Snorlax in the future, suggesting that past generations of Pokémon will be available from the start

The professor is Professor Bristle and the rival is Ricki, a magazine writer who documents the strange events occurring in the past

The new generation consists of 99 new Pokémon, many of them baby Pokémon (something Leviathyn writer Ray G. doesn’t want to see) and new evolutions of current Pokémon

Sylveon is a Normal Pokémon that evolves based on the new bond level; it is the only new Eeveelution

There will be a total of six legendary Pokémon that include Xerneas (Psychic/Rock) and Yveltal (Ghost/Flying) along with four black and white Pokémon based on card suits: a cobra with a heart-shaped hood and tail, a tiger with diamond patterns, a t-rex with spade-shaped eyes, and a peacock with a club-shaped tail

Most of the brand new Pokémon will be new type combinations such as Fire/Ice and Dark/Electric (something Leviathyn writer Ray G. does want to see)

The types of the final evolutions of the starter Pokémon will be Grass/Flying, Fire/Psychic, and Water

Rumors are all laughable until proven.

DELELELE WHOOP!!

While I don't believe this rumor, I still feel the need to clarify that the original post worded the Jean and Jane part awkwardly and made it sound as if the names were not customizable. He really just meant that the trainer themselves couldn't be customized aesthetically.

Any rumor involving a new type.
Especially the types this board likes to come up with.
Airport is an acceptable new type, however.

Cheers, didn't see that topic on the front page and made the classic mistake of assuming that meant there wasn't one.

Ignoring the fact that this is fake...I will never understand how so many people took the name thing as saying that the names are not customizable as opposed to the characters are not. That wouldn't even make any sense. I read it as it was meant.

*facepalm* He was responding to the rumors that we could change their clothing, he even pointed that out in a later post. You cannot change their clothing, you CAN change their names. Common sense could've helped someone with down syndrome figure that out..

Not so sure this is fake. I mean. if it is fake, it's a really, really good one. I don't know how people look for clues and whatnot to determine "fakeness", but just going off what he's saying, I could totally believe it all.

There's nothing that sucks worse that that moment in an argument when you realize that you are wrong.
