    So in amidst the flurry of game news, the design of the Eevee 3DS XL has been released.

    It looks... interesting. I wouldn't initially think that it would be an Eevee-based design, seeing as it only borrows colours from its design, but it looks interesting nontheless. Can't really feel the impact of this new design on western audiences though, as its rarity means that it's probably just going to be a repeat of the Charizard XL design and amount to nothing.

    One thing I noticed from the screen shots is that the starters know a different move, they don't all know tackle like in 5th gen. That I thought was pretty dumb. I'm glad they changed it back.

    Surprisingly, X & Y haven't done anything to kill my interest yet. I can recall the Cofagrigus making me like that for Generation V.

    Hey guys. did anyone else hear that noise in the beginning when the camera was on Gogoat? I think it might be Gogoat's cry.
    Also, the Kalos region,form a bird's eye view, looks to have a medieval feel to it with what appear to be castles. It also seems smaller than the others.
    Also, when it shows the starters using only moves respective o their type, I think that eliminates all hope for secondary typings. (Fire/Psychic Water/Fighting Grass/Dark etc)
    I quite like most of the four other Pokemon's English names, except Helioptile will take some getting used to...

    Why would the starters have secondary typings in their first forms? I mean, helioptile is using parabolic charge, an electric attack, despite also being normal type. I don't think it hints at anything at all

    Is there a projected price drop for the 3DS anytime soon? Too expensive at the moment when I only plan on buying one just for X/Y.

    Well, it's been fairly common discussion in some areas of Serebii - that the starters jad secondary types because of the moves they used in the first trailer.

    It already had a relatively significant price drop and there isn't one coming in the near future so far as we know.

    We know the starters themselves are pure typed, the Fighting/Psychic/Dark second types are for their final evolved forms.

    You can buy a refurbished one off of Nintendo's site for $130 (or $170 bundled with OoT3D, though you're better off getting that used).

    Refurbished sounds like a good idea.

    In what regard are you asking? What you see is what we know, for the most part.

    On the Official Pokemon website, on the X and Y page, there is another page called Pokemon Basics. Using Chespin as an example, they confirmed that Chespin can learn Rollout by level gain.
    So...Chespin can learn Rollout, a Rock-type move, by basic means. The description of Chespin includes "Chespin has a tough shell covering it's head and back" It seems to be a set-up to become a Grass/ Rock.
    Yea? Yea? No? Just me? Okay.

    Do not doubt the Cloyster Clan.

    It's possible. As for me, they can do anything they want, but I just really hope the Fairy type rumor isn't true

    Turns out I might have been wrong about the bird. He's turning out to be a Fire-type ("Fletch" has to do with fire). Regional birds are not Fire-types, usually.

    I don't think you're necessarily wrong about the type, but "fletch" doesn't have anything particular to do with fire. Are you sure you're not thinking of "flint"?

    So this is a European thing...?

    The regional birds have always been Normal/Flying type. Besides, Fletchling has been confirmed to be Normal/Flying type. Also, Fletchling sounds a lot like fledgling.

    Come on guys, let's play a game! =D
    Guess where the starting town and the pokémon liga is.
    If your guess is correct you can be proud of yourself for a whole pokemon generation! Isn't that great?! XD

    Btw: I love the bird. Non-legendary flying types with fire attacks are pretty rare.

    Fire type regional birds seemed kinda... farfetched. I was expecting it to be another boring Normal/Flying type, but eh.

    Staraptor can learn close combat and final gambit, but it isn't part fighting type. It being able to learn one fire type move doesn't make it part fire type.

    I'm pretty sure that move looks like brave bird he is doing. Not a fire type.
