So, CoroCoro gave us a lot to digest.

First of all, the only news related to Pokémon X & Y was the revelation of Ninfia, which was expected, as we all saw a new Eevee evolution coming. Ninfia looks cute and elegant, but that's all there is to it. Like always, I found a ton of fan art of Ninfia that looks so much better than the official art (it always does). As for the typing, I am now firmly convinced it's a Normal type of Pokémon.
Second, we finally got some news on the Genesect movie and it is AMAZING.
The full title is:ExtremeSpeed Genesect: Mewtwo's Awakening
I cannot believe that this is actually happening, but it is. Genesect VS Mewtwo is a showdown I'm sure everyone would love to see and now it's happening. I'm also hoping for JJM to play a larger role in this movie, however, hopefully not as their emotionless, robotic BW selves.
Next, we got the final three titles of the current, on-going arc episode N which basically indicate that this arc will consist only of 14 episodes and will end in April. I'm surprised that episode N is so short because I honestly expected more, but I guess dragging it out wouldn't have helped either. At least we're ending it with a three-parter that will hopefully be a satisfying conclusion.
- The White Ruins! Ash VS N!! (4/4)
- Team Plasma Attacks! Ceremony of Revival!! (4/11)
- Reshiram VS N! Beyond Truth and Ideals!! (4/18)
This does set up a few questions though:
- Are we getting a fourth short saga with a new title?
- Will Team Rocket play a larger role?
- Is the end of episode N also the end of Team Plasma?
- When is Genesect going to appear?
The one thing I am sure of is that we're almost certainly getting a new OP and ED since after N leaves, there won't be any need for them.
And finally, we got definitive proof that it is indeed Ash's Charizard who is returning in the eight episode of this arc. What makes it more interesting is the fact that this episode might be a two-parter AND Team Plasma is once again involved. With N around and Ash's Charizard kicking ass, we're in for some good episodes. :D
CoroCoro might not have brought us a lot info on X/Y (which is understandable since there are like 8 months left before the game release), though we sure got some juicy info on the anime.
