    Not obviously

    People looked through both in-game (how we found things like the lati@s mega stones) and through the pgl site (how we found things like the discount coupon and gems) and there are no sort of key items for events so far as we can tell.
    I will say that the reporter is probably referring to, like, Diancie or something. Mythical Pokemon refer to event Pokemon.

    But otherwise I agree that these "mysteries" are not even really mysteries. They're just things for flavor that don't have any ~secret meaning~ that absolutely no one, not even any of the guides, have mentioned.

    There are FOUR locked doors, actually.

    The fourth one is located after the one we can enter.

    Interestingly, it seems to create electricity via photosynthesis or something else related to plant, as it has green bushes that makes the power plant looks like a greenhouse. Basically, it's a literal "power plant" lol

    Wow hang on, this seems really important to me... I missed that one during my original play through. So I went back and took a look at the 4 locked plants. Each make electricity (obviously) but I notice that the one you mentioned has a grass or plant theme (Grass type)

    The other three are:
    a wind themed plant (flying)
    a steam themed plant (water?)
    a lava themed plant (fire)

    All make electricity. This gives us four typings: Electric/Grass, Electric/Fire, Electric/Flying, Electric/Water. Rotom has four forms that match this to perfection. The other being Electric/Ice which I don't see a connection for. Is there any chance that we can access these doors using the Rotom forms? I was also considering the move Dig because of the terrain but I don't have the TM yet. I will get it asap and the Rotom forms too. Couldn't hurt to try right?

    Rotom and all of its forms are readily available in X/Y with no additional stipulations. If there were a connection we'd have long since known by now.

    I know I just brought them to the plants and nothing happened. It's strange though how the plants all have different themes related to those four types.

    I think I figured out southern Kalos and the Friend Safari.
    The owners of the daycare take all the eggs given back to them as well as all the pokemon released from their PC
    terminal and take them the Southern Kalos, which has massive amounts of open space to breed and raise pokemon.
    Then they take those pokemon and release them in the Friend Safari so trainers can find rare pokemon.

    I started over on my pokemom x game, and I ran into a shiny azurill when I got to the first city with a pokemon center. How lucky was that. But it sucked cause I caught it in a great ball. Had no choice.

    That's entirely subjective, not to mention, maybe you just haven't tried enough games.

    Speaking of Southern Kalos, I was disappointed that they didn't really put any areas in that section of the region, it's mainly just empty space. Hopefully the next game puts more areas there.

    Anyone else think they missed a trick by not having Fantina in Kalos? In the English games (not sure about in other languages), her speech is peppered with French, and she states specifically that she's not from Sinnoh. I was surprised that they didn't at least reference her in the France-inspired region of Kalos. I figured at the very least we'd see her family there. What does anyone else think?

    Yeah. I would have liked a route or two leading to Kiloude, if only to give us something to explore post-game. Southern Kalos seems kind of tropical, so it would have been cool to see an area like that.

    It's just flavour for her character, nothing more.

    That aside, I've heard that Fantina doesn't speak French in the Japanese versions. So from their perspective, they technically didn't miss out on an opportunity to bring her to Kalos. Of course, that's now. They could very well include her in a remake/sequel, but this is pure speculation.

    Yeah, it's a pity, because Kiloude City would be perfect for the main games' first jungle area, and there's quite a bit of open space to the east for more post game areas.

    Perfect spot for a Battle Frontier! Assuming they don't change the route and make you start in Kiloude or something, though you could get near the Battle Frontier in the main story-line in HG/SS anyways.

    Taking another look at the map, I'm severely disappointed there weren't any true island cities. Ahh wasted space. I also expected there to be more things in the north east for some reason. Also, is there a town missing on the map between Snowbelle and Anistar? I forget it's name, but either I'm blind or it's not there. (I'm referring to the map that was given out for pre-ordering and such).

    One thing that I found really weird about this region is the gym layout. Everyone before the leaks predicted the science kid to be the 2nd gym leader, I remember playing the game without looking at any spoilers and wondering if I'd ever see the 2nd gym. Weird how far out it was, but fun. I loved how fast paced the game was in terms of what you're given.

    Actually, I'm curious how they'd handle a Battle Frontier in this game, usually they just expand the Battle Tower into one. But the Battle Maison is smack dab in the middle of Kiloude City, so it'd be difficult to do that without changing the city's layout. It might be easier to work with the Battle Chateau, they could just bar entry into the area until post game.

    I doubt they would, it's too far removed from the rest of the region and if they connected it, there'd be no reason to go down there.

    That's not the first time we've had gyms so far apart, the 2nd and 3rd gyms in DP were so far apart from one another that they were practically on opposite ends of the region.

    That's correct. In the Japanese and French versions she is actually English instead.
    So internationally, it wouldn't make much sense to have her in Kalos.

    Yeah. In B2W2, half the map wasn't open until post-game. This time around, all you get is Kiloude and a few caves.
    I would love a beach-side route, but a pretty one, not like Route 8.

    When I saw Kiloude's description mentioning Southern Kalos, and its picture on the in-game map, I thought it would be a tropical beach city, or at least located near a huge lake with sands on the edge and palm trees around, mimicking a beach.

    GF should have done that......Kiloude would have looked so much better.

    Between Snowbelle and Anistar there's only that snowy route. Maybe you thought the E4 castle (which just happens to be on the other side of the snowy route) is a town.

    EDIT : nevermind that, between Snowbelle and Anistar there's Couriway

    Yeah, between Anistar and Snowbelle there's Couriway. Which GF should totally expand in the future. That unusable train station......

    I wouldn't be surprised if we see something done with that in the sequel.

    New TMV line from Lumiose to Couriway? That back platform in Lumiose Station is unused as well.
