So, about those Pokebeach leaks...

This one:

http://pokebeach.com/2013/06/pokebeach-x-y-rumor-roundup-and-clarifications

Here, I've bolded the true parts and italicized the false parts.

Fairy will be a new type. It is weak to Poison and Steel, immune to Dragon, super effective against Dragon, Dark, and Fighting, and Fire and Psychic-type Pokemon take half damage from it. [Perhaps the leaker meant to say "Poison" rather than "Psychic"? Both begin with a "P" after all...]

Sylveon is Fairy-type. Some older Pokemon will be reclassified to Fairy, such as Mawile (Steel/Fairy).

Mewtwo has two new formes, not just one. Both are activated via items.


The professor’s English name is Patrice. [This part looks like it may be false, or at least changed since the build the leaker saw, but you never know. No, Sycamore doesn't completely disprove it, as he's listed below.]

The Starter final evolutions are Fire/Psychic, Grass/Dark, and Water/Fighting.

The first Gym is Bug, the second is Fairy, and the fourth is Fighting [Korinna is largely believed to be a Fighting-type leader.]

A few attacks will be dual-typed. [Gosh, I hope not, but Pokebeach thinks this is misleading anyway.]

There will be a new type of battling style that Flying-type Pokemon and Pokemon with Levitate can participate in.

You will be able to see a Pokemon’s EVs at a certain in-game facility. You will be able to boost the EVs through mini-games.
It will take about two hours to get one stat to max EVs.

The goat, Gogoat -> Gogoat.

The panda, Yancham -> Panchum.
[Slight typos are forgivable.]

The bird, Yayakoma -> Fletchling.

The “lizard,” Elikiteru -> Helioptile.

Pancham evolves into Pangoro
in the early level 30s. In order to evolve Pancham into Pangoro, you need to have one other Dark-type Pokemon in your party. Pangoro’s type is Fighting/Dark.

A Pokemon named Inkay evolves into Malimar. To evolve it, you have to hold your 3DS upside-down when it levels up (the 3DS has an accelerometer and gyroscope, so it can detect that). Malimar’s type is Dark/Psychic.

A Psychic-type Pokemon
named Espurr (ESP + purr) evolves into Meowstick (Meow + mystic?).

Like in B/W you have two rivals – one is friendly and the other is competitive. Your rival that is more friendly gives you his/her fully evolved starter Pokemon after you beat the game.

Another professor named Sycamore gives you either Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle.

Even though it shows the player riding on a Gogoat in the new trailer, players can’t ride on their own Pokemon. What was shown is just an alternate way of getting around Lumiose City and it only works with Gogoat.
[Well... other Pokemon can be ridden, but this may just mean Gogoat is the only one you can ride in Lumiose.]

HMs still exist but there’s a lot less of them.

Players will be able to see their Pokemon’s EVs

A new move, Belch, is a Poison-type attack that has a base power of 120. The user must consume a held Berry to perform it.

Draining Kiss is a Fairy-type attack that heals the user for the same amount of damage performed. It has a base power of 60.

If the previously revealed forme of Mewtwo can be said to look roughly similar to Mewtwo’s original design, the second supposed form of Mewtwo can be said to look roughly/vaguely similar to Mew‘s design. [Perhaps the leaker forgot which form was already revealed? Because this makes more sense the other way around.]

So... yeah. Not a lot wrong and not a lot left.

Should be italicized since Fairy is actually not very effective against Fire Types.

Edit: whoops, misread it, didn't read after the italics.

I'm very curious if the leaker was playing a beta version of the game. Because that would probably explain why Psychic was supposedly resistant to Fairy, and why no mention was made of Fairy's resistances (maybe it didn't have any at the time?) and that Steel is also resistant.

Or maybe he was just writing from memory, didn't remember the entire type matchup chart, and mentally swapped "Poison" for "Psychic"? Who can say?

Nyaonikusu is the name of the Psychic cat and it lines up nicely with Meowstick. Should that part (not the evolution portion) be in bold too?

Not until it's confirmed.

I'm thinking Patrice is the name of whoever gives you the Kalos starters, and the leaker automatically assumed that meant he's the professor.

Possibly. There is the fact that the Pokemon Direct made it look more like Tierno was handing out starters, though.

He could have. But Psychic resisting Fairy made some sense, since it would have the type-to-type advantage over the type that was strong to its weakness (Dark) (if that made any sense at all). Thus, I'm thinking maybe later in development, Game Freak took another look at the chart and then made the changes that we are seeing now.
