Guess what was recently leaked? That's right, the newest issue of CoroCoro, which finally reveals some new Pokémon! That's right, it's the first batch of new Pokémon unrelated to existing Pokémon since the initial reveal of Pokémon X & Y. On top of that, there are other details as well!
First and foremost, here are the scans, courtesy of @huuraibou108 on Twitter (Japanese). You can click any of them to view it larger:
Let's start by taking a look at the new Pokémon. Keep in mind that these are their Japanese names; their English names will likely be different and will most likely be revealed next Saturday or Sunday, to coincide with an important Pokémon X & Y announcement on the Japanese show Pokémon Smash.
Yancham (ヤンチャム) is a Fighting-type Pokémon that seems to resemble a panda bear with a leaf in its mouth. It's classified as a Naughty Pokémon.
Gogoat (ゴーゴート) is a pure Grass-type Pokémon resembling a goat. It's classified as a Ride Pokémon, which is particularly true, as one of the screenshots shows the player character riding a Gogoat throughout town. It also knows the move Horn Leech.
Elikiteru (エリキテル) is an Electric/Normal-type Pokémon, giving it a very unique typing. It's classified as a Generator Pokémon and has the new move Parabola Change, which apparently heals itself while also doing damage.
Lastly, we have Yayakoma (ヤヤコマ), which is a Normal/Flying-type Pokémon and is classified as a Japanese Robin Pokémon (as in the variety of robin in Japan, of course). It appears to use the move Flame Charge in the bottom left battle scene.
The name of the new region has been revealed as well (at least its Japanese name). The region is known as "Karos", and it is indeed based off of the real-world France, with the massive "Miare City" set right where Paris would be.
On top of all of that, as shown below, there are several different looks for your main character on top of the standard look, allowing you to choose to play as a blond-haired character or a darker-haired character with a darker skin tone.
It's unknown if these are the only looks for your Trainer; it's possible they are just showing some examples of customization, but even if you only get to choose from three, it's great to have at least somewhat of a choice.
Finally, here's a closer look at the Japanese boxes for Pokémon X & Y. The source scan was very small and even at that, it's small on the cover picture itself, but it at least gives an idea of what it will look like. I've lightened it up and applied a filter or two to hopefully make it slightly clearer.
Well, everyone, what are your thoughts on this big new update for Pokémon X & Y? Be sure to talk about it in the comments! There's certainly a ton that's been revealed, yet I have a feeling we're just at the tip of the iceberg.
