Will there be a counterpart to Volcarona? (part of Dex "leak" talk inside)

IIRC the list of Japanese names for Gen 6 Pokémon, which included Bunnelby and Dedenne, had one of the names loosely translated to "moon moth". Our current Dex "leak" describes it as a Bug/Fairy lunar moth-esque with the cycles of the moon etched in its wings.

As far as the "leak" goes(gradually accepting that it's unfortunately fake) this is one Pokémon that I hope is real, plus it'd be my first Fairy-type of choice.

You can hope. Lest just wait and see.

The leaked names may indicate that we'll get a moon moth Pokemon, but then you have to remember that people translated Bunnelby's name as "digging bee."

They were saying on Smogon that it's also related to the name of a school of ninjutsu, so it's also possible for it to be related to Froakie if he is in fact a ninja.

Bug/Water moth based on the moon.
Similar stats to Volcarona. Same HP and Speed, reversed offensive and defensive stats.
Signature move is an 80 BP Water type move with a 50% chance to boost Attack.

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

Oh, right :p

Though weren't there some names that they felt 99% translated?
