Rumors that remain unconfirmed as of now.

In no particular order:

~ Starter final forms will be Grass/Dark, Fire/Psychic and Water/Fighting

~ Fairy will be also be strong against Fighting and Dark-types. Weak to Poison and Steel. Unknown if it has a resistance or not.

~ Dual-type moves, and how they would work

~ Second forme of Mewtwo

~ Evolutions via 3DS gyroscope, specifically mentioned was a Psychic/Dark-type

~ Pancham evolving into a Fighting/Dark-type

~ Gym order (suggested that Bug is first, Fairy is second, Fighting is fourth)

~ A Professor Sycamore gives you the Kanto starters postgame

~ A Rival gives you his or her fully-evolved starter at some point during the game

~ Sylveon is gotten via a bond system (which likely means Pokemon-Amie)

~ Echo-type (almost assuredly debunked)

Most of these, barring the last few, came from the credible leaks, but still have yet to be officially confirmed.

If there are any other major rumors I missed, feel free to add them.

At this point, I think it would be foolish to ignore the rumors Pokebeach posted. Everything else, though, I take with a pound of salt.

Wasn't it confirmed by Smash to be weak against poison already? Hmm..

Also, the rumors stated Fire and Psychic will resist Fairy

I agree, but they are still unconfirmed.

This is why I'm hoping they'll explain dual-type moves soon. I've heard many ways they could work, and there are some interesting ideas.

True, but I meant Fairy-type resistances, ie things that benefit them offensively. Smash potentially hinted at an Ice resistance, but the source did not list any for the type.

Thanks, edited the original post to add some of the things I forgot the first time.

Be cool if CoroCoro confirmed some of this tonight, but I doubt it.
