All of the starters have been re-typed to just their pure starting type (Fire/Grass/Water). However, they WERE originally going to be Fire/Psychic | Grass/Dark | Water/Fighting.

Pokemon Amie is a massive hoax.

Professor Sycamore works for Team Flare.

Cynthia returns as champion again.

You will be able to purchase pastries in-game.

Repels have been removed from the game entirely,

A clock makes its comeback as a massively annoying grandfather clock that takes up about 1/4 of the top screen and chimes on the half hour and hour.

Pokemon limit has been increased to 10.

Wild encounters are significantly harder.

There are *8* new dragon type chains, with the secondary typings of Fairy, None, Grass, Poison, Flying, Flying, Ground, Electric. They all have 2-3 evolutions.

There are 4 new fire type chains, with secondary typings of Fighting, Fighting, Fighting and Flying.

Legendary pokemon get a symbol on their info pages denoting their status.

No backwards compatibility.

Around 160 new pokemon are being introduced, around 70 of which are unavailable until the post game - with 15 version exclusives for each game and 10 pokemon exclusive to events.

There are 22 legendaries - Cover trio, 3 Trios, 10 Events
Xerneas (Fairy)
Yveltal (Fly/Dark)
Zurrect (Fairy/Dark)
[Berry Trio]
Raspber (Grass/Fire)
Blueber (Grass/Water)
Blakber (Grass/Dark)
[Wildlife Trio]
Cogard (Water/Fairy)
Fogard (Grass/Fairy)
Skygard (Flying/Fairy)
[Emotion Trio]
Joixie (Psychic/Fairy)
Malxie (Dark/Fairy)
Fuxie (Fire/Fairy)

The 10 event 'mons are yet to be announced, and will be available through DLC. They will not exist on a player's game if they have not had the event. There is a special pokemon "Outmon" which is displayed when a person is against a Pokemon that they have not got on their game.

Obviously the fire starter is going to end up being Fire/Fighting.
#6CakeOfLiesPosted 7/26/2013 11:08:20 AM
I actually laughed.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

I suspect this is BS but the professor working for Team Flare would be an amazing plot twist.
