I am Junichi Masuda, ask me anything.

With all these XY information leak trolls revealing themselves lately, namely mr. XY and that mage guy, I thought it would only be appropriate that the master information leak troll reveal himself as well. So yes, I am actually Junichi Masuda, master troll. Ask me anything.

Since I know you'll all want some proof, this should be sufficient:


Answers to some common questions:

There will indeed be a new type, and it will indeed be fairy! Offensively it will be super effective against ice, grass, bug and rock because fuck those types, while defensively it will be resisting fire, grass and poison, because fuck those types too. Dragon4life bitches.

By popular demand stealth rock will be nerfed to doing only 25% maximum damage. But don't worry hazard-lovers, in addition to this we'll be introducing stealth ice, stealth grass and stealth fairies which all will be able to do 25% maximum upon entry as well. We do hope you will enjoy these new additions to the game!

Abilities can now be switched on pokémon on demand, like pokémon moves. Your pikachu will be able to switch between static and lightningrod every time you visit a specific place. We hope you will appreciate this convenience. I know this was not a common question but it will lead up to answering one.

To show we do in fact listen to the fans Fennekin will not evolve into a fire/fighting, but stay pure fire. However, you don't have to worry if you do like fire/fighting! Fennekin will be able to get a different ability really quickly in the game that will treat it as if it were fire/fighting! But just to make people happy we've made sure to include an extra amount of fire/fighting pokémon in the game, so you don't have to worry about missing out even if you decide to not change fennekin's ability.

Dual-type moves will indeed be in the game. We know this might be controversial, but let me take all doubt away right now. The only type combination to get such moves will be fire/fighting. These moves may or may not be Fennekin's signature moves, but that will remain a secret for now.

As you may have noticed most people have a guess about what Sylveon's type is, but are still waiting for the official reveal. Well I can tell you here today that this official reveal shall take place around August this year! So stay tuned for that!

    Masuda, why don't you listen to the fans?

    Oh but we try to very much listen to the fans. Like I just said, we nerfed stealth rock and didn't make fennekin evolve into fire/fighting as we originally planned to do (its design might still reflect it though). We even added character customization by adding four new different choices instead of the usual one per gender. Of course if you have any more suggestions we'll be happy to hear them!

    Masuda, why were you wearing a hoodie and Aeropostale tee during the PokeSma that you revealed the new Mewtwo? Isn't that a little... Western?

    Also, do honestly believe there is going to be a Fairy type?

    Also, how do you speak such good Engrish?

    Do you like SunDrop? Or do you prefer Sprite?

    Zangoose or Seviper?

    Why no RS remakes?

    And can I speak to whoever designed Klink? I want to personally thank them.

    Cause hoodies are the shit here in Japan bro.

    Also, do honestly believe there is going to be a Fairy type?
    I just said there was gonna be one didn't I?

    Also, how do you speak such good Engrish?
    Iwata-san taught me.

    Do you like SunDrop? Or do you prefer Sprite?
    SunDrop, I don't like Sprite, too outdated. 3D models are where it's at now.

    Zangoose or Seviper?
    Zangoose, which is why he got the better dreamworld ability.

    And can I speak to whoever designed Klink? I want to personally thank them.
    I'm sorry, you can not. You can thank me for approving the design though.

    That was a façade. I based most of my fake indentity on the facebook page of a kid called Klaas-Jan Jansen.

    We have no plans for that at the moment, but if there's fan demand for it we will definitely start on it as soon as possible.

    Not in the main game no, but various sets of paid dlc have already been planned out, so who knows, we might see this in the form of paid dlc. Get your wallet ready!

    What will be the gimmick of whatever "Gimmick Pokémon" we get in this generation? We have Chansey, Eevee, Spinda, Chatot, and Audino, as well as many others; what's next?

    There will be a pokémon that changes forme and colour depending on the colour of 3DS and wether it's an XL or not. This in the hopes more people will buy a 3DS XL. There's also gonna be a pokémon that you can only get if you connect your game to a WiiU, but it's actually rather good so I'm not sure if that fits what you mean. Finally there's also a pokémon planned that unlocks a new forme for every paid dlc area you buy, but we're still working on that because not all the paid dlc is finalized yet. It will have a lot of formes though, you can count on that. It might even surpass unown!

    Such dlc is not planned at the moment I'm afraid. A pikachu outfit is the closest we have.

    No. Pokémon is a franchise to be enjoyed by all ages and will continue to be. While we strive to make the game more exciting for the fans, including death or gore is not something we would ever do.

    Can we equip Gogoat with flippers and scuba diving gear and take the goat underwater, Masuda? I think this would be a really cool idea (but only Gogoat not anything else).
