And now everyone has undying trust and faith in Serebii.
Honestly, I was pretty doubtful (Though I LOVED Wotter's final evo). Smugleaf evolved into a banana and Pignite/Emboar (I love how these were some of the fan names) evolved into... That thing. I just couldn't believe it.

Except you are forgetting one thing, review code restrictions.
He could have had a pre-release review copy. If you recall that the demos for X and Y were EXP locked, it should be clear as to the possibility.
So you're saying that
a) He somehow obtained a pre-release review copy of a Japanese game, when he very, very, very, extremely likely has no Japanese insider ways of getting said Japanese review copy
2) He got his review copy at the exact same time as the ROM leaked on the internet
3) That his EXP problem, which all the ROM players were also experiencing, magically fixed itself
Okay. Seems legit.
I find it hard to believe that he would use a ROM when he say that he pre-ordered the game itself.
Getting the information on his site early is a big deal for him. His pre-ordered copy didn't come on time so he got the leaked ROM while trying to pass it off as him having the game until it became apparent he was pirating.
It's why he doesn't like that X/Y are a worldwide release simply because the english speaking Pokémon community as a whole(or just GameFAQs alone) are going to be able to discover most of the game much faster than his site.
"The fact of the matter is that we've been here constantly. We've been betraying peoples expectations, in a good way, for a long time."
Yep all the people here saying he used a rom is totally lying
I mean there is no way serebii would use a rom and use the english patches that came along with it like in HG/SS
I mean serebii was the only reason this game did so well because he convinced everyone to not pirate and wait on his copy because He's ever Soooo Important and his dro- I mean followers support nintendo out the arse
