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!
If you have any comments or further questions don't be afraid to do so in the comments! -Junichi Masuda
