    the majority of the fan base is sub adults and adults
    and it is too childish if i was a kid i would have laughed at it and completely disregarded it

    First time poster here.

    I myself am partial to what the 4chan "leaker" tried to point out. I think it is pretty much certain that the Fennekin evo is going to be Fire/Psychic. I like the idea of the Froakie evo being Water/Electric (because of the cloud speculation) and Chespin being Grass/Steel.

    Simple as that.

    Seriously, if you don't like the name of a Pokemon, rename it to your liking.
    Calm down bro, seriously. Bubbaboom IS a dumb name compared to the likes of Blastoise, Feraligatr and Empoleon that are meant to sound cool.
    It'll probably sound much cooler with the big-fat-horned-clouded toad of that rumor.
    I don't really care for "bad" names though, they don't bother me, I was just making fun of it.

    Their target market is ~10 years old kids. It IS very childish.

    First thing that comes in my mind when I heard the name Bubbaboom:

    IMO the list is fake, the types are too weird for a generation. There's too many Ghost and Dragon pokémon.

    Psychic, Dark, and Fighting wouldn't be too far out of the way either. I remember a little while ago (either the 5th or 6th generation) that there were rumors that the starters would be those types.

    i hope they reveal their evolutions and their evolutions types soon cause my patience and sanity(seriously if this keeps up i swear i will become as madd as sheogorath) is slowly and painfully going down the drain.

    It isn't, otherwise we would be the target audience.
    The games wouldn't sell as much with the majority of the fan base was sub-adults and adults, it's still huge with kids because of the cartoon, events, marketing and etc.

    Houndoomed, Throhem, Sawkem I can see a whole lot of thought went into these names. Simply adding "ed" and "em" to the end of the name of an evolved pokemon is not creative at all.
    Speaking of creative names how about Garbarge, it's... freaking GENIUS, right..... right? This is just terrible, oh I know the perfect name for a pokemon let's add one letter to a word it'll be great.
    It's pre-evolution isn't much better, I mean Wastenaut seriously when I was just skimming through the names an saw this one I had to stop and think. Man it really is a waste of time reading this, I'll admit this post from Mr. XY just some of these names made me laugh.

    But you guys can't take everything this Mr. XY post's to be even an ounce of truth. Anyone can say their an employee working on the project, or even their friend is leaking them information then make up something and post it on the internet.
    First of all the games aren't going to be released for at least another 8 months. How much you wanna bet these predication's Mr. XY has set up and when GF announces something completely different, Mr. XY will immediately turn around and say they changed it just to cover him/herself.
    Not to mention the amount of info he/she has posted already is far to much even for leaks. I mean how much content was said in Mr. XY's first few post's it was an overwhelming amount which some of it was going to change alot on how the games currently work. There is one slight problem I've found in two of Mr. XY's post's I believe his very first one say's that there's going to be more then 100 new Pokemon. However in his more recent post of the full pokedex there's only 99.... now I know how to count and 99 is definitely less then 100.

    All in all everything and anything that Mr. XY has posted that doesn't come true, he/she will simply deny it and say that they changed it, delayed announcing it, or they scrapped it. In fact the majority of this person's rumor(s) is just the speculations that everyone on the internet is wanting. So of course lot's of people are going to want to believe these rumor's are true. There all just rumors and nothing more, the only things you should believe is what get's posted on the official websites.

    I also doubt that list, the names are really uncreative.

    I agree with you and I also know that it's fake, but it's a good way to see some hypothesis and just chat in the forum since Game Freak and Nintendo are slowly starting to give us some real information, FACTS or even screen shots.

    Pokémon X and Pokémon Y were announced almost 2 months ago and we only know 4 pokémon, you know? Even if Mr. XY is trolling us, at least he is keeping the flame burning, since at least we can talk about things that isn't Sylveon's type.

    I hope this isn't the final evolution... I think Froakie might be Water/Fighting... That wouldn't surprise me, and this does look like a water/fighting Pokemon, but so would something else.

    I also doubt it because the names are ridiculously like Froakie. Never in any generation have we ever had a Pokemon who's name was just the same as it's unevolved form, but with something added to the end.

    we know its fake. But i think its suppose to be a sumo wrestler. Has the same body type as Hariyama and Emboar. We have to consider that this could be an option for a water/fighting even if we dont like it

    It could be a sumo wrestler... That would make sense, but I think I'd rather have more flexible fighting Pokemon. We have a lot of them, but I really do like that body style better on them. I know it would work for a water/fighting Pokemon, and I know that it would be an option, maybe even a good one, I was just saying that I wouldn't be a fan of it myself. Just as I wasn't the biggest fan of Hariyama or Emboar.

    i agree with you specially since water starters are always slowest and bulky. i would like to see a fast slim water/fighting. im just saying we should consider the ppssibility it could be big. And if you look at the trailer the stance Froakie takes before he attacks it looks like a sumo move before he charges....

    Yeah. The water Pokemon do tend to look like that. I actually didn't even realize that until you said so... xD Mudkip seemed like it would be a quick Pokemon, but it evolved into Swampert, who I really liked, but it was still a slow Pokemon. I know it's a possibility and come to think of it, if you're referring to before he charged at the Patrat, then it does look kind of like a sumo wrestling type of thing.

    Swamperts sprite from R/S/E made him look like some red neck dude who you could easily imagine sitting on a sofa eating beams from the can in his underwear in my opinion... But I do love his sprite now ^^ and always liked his art work ^^

    I think it's almost set in stone every gen we get a "more to love" starter though.. Venusaur, Fearaligatr, Swampert, Empoleon and Torterra sort of, Emboar... So I guess that it more than likely will be the water type who gets that part again?

Hence why a sunflora isn't part fire for the sun) and doesn't need anything from the desert to keep it alive. A fox needs the warm temperature and specific food from desert regions. It's like your saying a turtle doesn't need to be a water Pokemon because it only lives in the water. I'm just going to reassure you that I'm not saying that it's not psychic or that the move in the trailer wasn't a psychic move but I am saying that it does make sense for it to be part ground and I wouldn't be surprised if it was. Don't just say you don't think it will be that or that it wont be that just you don't like it. Think and you will see that there is some sort of sense behind it and accept it.
