    Tecnically 4chan is the western version of 2chan.

    And I think both are unreliable too, being the "coroleaks" days the only exception, and just for 2ch.

    Pretty much. Almost all CoroCoro leaks originate there, as does information about the games shortly after Japanese release.

    It's been repeated multiple times, but that's not what was said. Originally it said "main characters are named Jean and Jane in the localization, non-customizable" and the poster later clarified he meant their designs.

    Fair enough. Still fake though. Rule of thumb generally says that if a leak is elaborate, it's probably fake.

    Says a lot about video game "journalism" though that it became a game of Chinese Whispers with the details.

    Holy moly! Imgur isn't working for me for some reason, but:
    imgur: the simple image sharer
    The XY guy on 4chan is faking massive info dumps with 80/99 new Pokemon gyms, elite 4, the works! I know its fake, but there would be so much hilarity ensuing from it if its all real. If IMGUR isn't working for you either:
    As I said this guy is prolly taking 4chan for a ride, but I wanna believe. I want to so badly. The whole past/present thing he first posted was cool, and I love the sound of the gym city names. The E4 also taking a huge classical approach for the types(fire-water-grass-electric) is also something I always wanted too. Its soooo good it has to be fake.

    Grass, Water, Fire and Electric are always rumoured E4 types every gen. Happened last time too. But as Josh said, too specific, therefore fake. Still like reading these rumours though

    I don't think we've EVER gotten the Elite Four details before release.

    Pokemon? Yes. Wottergate.

    But never E4. Especially not names, too. Fake.

    The legitimacy is strong with this one...

    There's too many holes in this "leak". Evolite Hariyama/Throh would be too gamebreaking. I can't remember, but there was one other one too.

    That rumor sounds a lot more reasonable than nearly everything else I've seen, its a shame too since I like the idea of a clover Grass/Dragon pseudo-legendary as well as the cool sounding Cerberus evolution of Houndoom. The small number of legends would also be a nice change of pace, as any more (the 600 BST pixie is absent) could simply be handled via DLC. So actually very good ideas overall.

    The Darumaka Fire/Ice split however is something that was rumored back during the BW2 period, not as an evolution but as a new forme. That and the E4 information shows to me that this is an obvious fake.

    Best fake I've seen so far though, I'll give Mr.XY that much.

    He said that a Heracross/Pinsir evo/pre-evo would get announced in March. So if it does, I'd be more inclined to believe it. But for now, I don't.

    As fake as that is, I have to admit, Pokemon based on the Spade, Club, Ace and Heart is a rather much want... Maybe not so much the animal species, but the card theme certainly.

    Pretty sure the modern card suit system was even devised in France, iirc.
