It's so weird being in the dark about things-not just because of a worldwide release, but because of the 3DS being ostensibly "un-hackable". It feels like the fans have become scientists, lol.
We know for sure the reasoning behind the alleys at least. The looker subplot uses them for battles.
For what it's worth, the three unknown legendaries seem to be at least in the system data... if you search for them specifically on the GTS as a Pokemon you want to trade for, your request will show up on the GTS for other players intact (normally, if you enter gibberish, like "Batman" as the Pokemon you want, it goes through, but is invisible. I tried it today searching for "Hoopa" (one of the three) and sure enough, it showed up on the GTS for other people, saying right there I wanted a "Hoopa"). If I recall correctly someone on another forum was able to confirm that Hoopa was programmed to be harder to catch or something than the other two, so it seems unlikely they're part of a trio. All we know of them, though, is their names... they could even be scrapped Pokemon that didn't get erased from the system, or Pokemon we'll encounter naturally in the game through an as-of-yet-unknown method. It's kind of cool to have this kind of "playground rumor" stuff again, haven't had this much fun trying to figure out mysteries since Gens 1 and 2!
Pokémon X & Y - Medals
At the very least, we know tipping a lot gets you a medal >_>
It seems really weird for the spot in Reflection Cave only exists for the Alakazamnite. Also there's a lone tree in the forest next to Snowbelle City. I personally think that the Musketeer Trio appearing is possible.
I'm wondering if the DNA Splicers will work on other Pokemon than Kyurem and Co, Venustoise anyone?
Also I wonder if Az's Floette is from that region the backpacker in the hotel mentions, originally I thought its flower would be Xerneas colored in Y (I played X) and that it would become the other legendary at some point through an event or something.
Its been 3000 years and a war and what is likely the equivalent of a mass extinction happened around that time that supposedly wiped out a large portion of Kalos' population. Not that out of the question to think that AZ's Floette's flower species was wiped out during that event.
Has anyone else noticed that the Legendary pokemon Xerneas, Yveltal and Zygard are coloured Red, Blue and Green- the same colours as Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. Also, Zygarde brings the ecosystem back from collapse. Didn't Kyogre and Groudon screw up the ecosystem in Ruby and Sapphire? In short, I think Kyogre and Groudon are hidden somewhere.
rotom got the types of its forms changed in black in white cos if they gave the forms types in platinum there wouldve been issues with diamond and pearl
Kyurem due to it's nature as a Pokemon "who waits for a hero to fill in the missing parts of its body with truth or ideals" as well as the fact that it along with Reshiram and Zekrom were once a single Pokemon. If Pokemon fusion was a thing this generation, they would've promoted it along with Mega Evolutions and Fairy types.
Or leave it up to the players to find out as a surprise.
When I get the DNA splicers I'll let you know if I get a Venustoise.
