I'll be sad if we can't figure out the new Pokemon's base stats, abilities, etc. early on.

It's entirely possible to completely add a new Pokemon using entirely DLC. It wouldn't need to have any data in the game beforehand. I expect Nintendo to do this with event legendaries.


Really? This could definitely be interesting then. I hope they make the Pokemon continuously available as DLC instead of limited even Pokemon though if that's the case.


As long as the DLC is free, then I have no problem with this. It wouldn't be right to charge $10 or however much, when all the previous events were free.

Actually if we can't analyze the data wouldn't the only way to find out base stats be battle testing with each Pokemon? And that's assuming the stats and damage formulas haven't changed in this generation.

True, this is assuming battle mechanics will be pretty similar to old games. The video highly suggests this, but it's too early to know for sure.

While I'm the sort of person who likes to know all of a game's secrets and the like, I think it will remain interesting if the Event Pokémon remain hidden for a time. Of course, using Metronome could very well uncover signature moves if they have any and the like.

X/Y might be the catalyst to the 3DS scene in the same way D/P was for the DS.

Their data is still in the games.


You don't know that


Data can't exist without it being programmed in. Just because we didn't know about Mew way back in the RBY days doesn't mean its data wasn't still in the game's coding itself.

Even if we can't rip visual aspects of the game, we can still infer from the coding which Pokemon are going to be secret or not.

Those guides never reveal event Pokemon until it's allowed by Nintendo, though. So it will be pointless.
