    Wait, wait wait, Couriway's train isn't connected to the Kiloude-Lumiose line? Haven't played the games yet, was assuming that was the case. Huh.
    And the map cloud thing, I'm more interested in the northeast of the region, beyond Terminus cave. That's a huge area not accessed, but hidden. The rest of South Kalos would be nice though, not gonna lie, if there is more. But that top right corner, that has to be connected to Alexa's editor.

    @Mitchman. No, it isn't. Not even post-game. Okay, you only get the ticket to Kiloude post-game either way. Still, you do not get a train ticket for any train going to or off from Couriway. You do not even see a train pass through. The station is just there. Yes, there's a woman who gives you a TM. But that's it basically. However, the station is nicely designed. And that is why I find the whole set-up curious and think that there might be a possible event where this station plays a bigger role. But perhapst that's just me...

    Those alleys aren't always empty. Those NPCs spawn in them randomly, and you get bonuses (I think stylishness boosts from all of them and items from some) for hunting them down and beating them. And NPCs saying weird things and vanishing after you're done with them isn't really uncommon in these games.

    ... Wait, what.

    Ghost House: On Route 14, as part of the story, you're forced to visit a haunted house and hear a ghost story about a man encountering faceless men, and then asked to pay a Tip or suffer. Nothing happens either way, and it's a really weird plot moment that's never explained. Just a stupid joke? Or hinting at something more?
    Since the plot focuses on a group of kids, I always assumed that it was playing on the 'a bunch of kids go to a scary place during Summer break' trope seen in anime/manga. Or maybe it is possibly referring to this as well (faceless doesn't always have to refer to a featureless head, it might have just been ill-defined and thus 'faceless').

    Not sure if it can be considered a mystery but has anyone tried to see what happens if you get Xerneas, Yveltal and Zygarde in one version? I remember that, on Saphire i guess, you could catch Rayquaza after you traded/cheated to get Groudon in one game, same for Landarus. You could even consider Regigiggas as another example of this. Just hoping for more legendarys already in-game.

    Or Slenderman, child-friendly version.

    If you're referring to the massive snow covered mountain, it's Frost Cavern.


    If you mean the greenery beyond it, then I have no idea. That isn't in-game so far. There's greenery in the mountains south of Kalos too.

    Does the Intriguing Stone item serve a purpose? Its description suggests so.

    You can trade it to somebody for a Sunstone. I can't remember which city. I'd be careful with who you talk to if you actually wanted to keep it though, because you do not have the actual option to trade it or not. Once you talk to him, you'll automatically give it to him. It's a force trade, really.

    just turns into a sun stone, seems like a big deal for just a evo stone though.

    I think the Intriguing Stone was supposed to appear like a Mega Stone, just to kind of throw you off.

    The thing that really confused me was the Anistar sundial. It's so huge and different yet had absolutely no role in the story. When I first got to it, I initially thought it was at least going to be involved in the Flare storyline, but that obviously didn't happen. There wasn't even a throwaway encounter by it was there?

    Well, Sycamore meets you there post-game and says the Mega stones are made from the same material and it/they glow between 8 and 9 pm. It lets you see Mega Stones during that time period that are just sitting around.
