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!

    It's good that you like the idea of Gogoat being the only pokémon being able to transport the player in some way, but alas that way will not be swimming. Gogoat is a grass type and wouldn't be able to hold its breath that long under water sadly.

    Silence you stupid mortal! Why do you think the location is a secret? Do you think it's a secret just for the heck of it? You can't even begin to comprehend. THE STATUE IS NEVER TO-

    Ahem. Ugh, I apologise for that. What I meant to say is there is gonna be no golden stunfisk statue in the game I'm afraid. There will be other statues though, so hopefully you will enjoy those!

    Say if fate had already decided your date of death. If you were given a choice, a guaranteed extra year to live after the date, only catch is, the year you gain is deducted from the life of a sweet cat. What do you do?

    That is a difficult question to answer, and I'm afraid I would need a little more time to think about that. Luckily of course I don't expect I would ever have to make such a choice.

    This is most likely not something we will ever do, as the amount of work and cost that would go in it would simply make it unfeasable. So you can stop creating forum threads on that now. We will continue to make remakes of older games if there is fan demand to them though.
