So with everything exciting happening back in June it was time to have some fun with July’s edition of the awesome Corocoro news! There were some interesting new tidbits! So let’s get to it!
- Xerneas is Fairy type and Yveltal is Dark/Flying
- Clauncher is exclusive to X and Skrelp to Y
- Clemont and Grant are both gym leaders but we don’t know what types they use (though it could be that Clemont could be either Steel or Electric while Grant could be Ground type.
- There’s a lot of online stuff announced too, but I’ll probably talk about it later
Let’s talk about the new Pokémon!!!!
As the only Pokémon that wasn’t introduced in Corocoro, Honedge was actually brought in a week earlier and was announced in France by Masuda himself! It also has the unique type of Steel/Ghost so that’ll be pretty nice to see in the metagame. Though a sword? It seems a bit farfetched (no PKMN pun intended) but this is kind of part of the weird animated items (like Electrode, Bronzong, Garbodor)…yeah…the list is big! lol.
If you haven’t figured it, Pangoro is the evolution of Pancham (though it’s method to evolve is being kept secret). It gains a new type though with the combination of Fighting/Dark (which is also the same type that the Scrafty line has. Something tells me this will be pretty good considering Scrafty is also quite good! Still…PANDA!!!!
Inkay and Malamar
The next two Pokémon are kind of strange deals. I mean they’re based off of squids and all, but they aren’t Water types at all! They’re both Dark/Psychic which is pretty cool since it’s a unique typing as well! Inkay also evolves in a new method which is rumored to be just flipping the 3DS over. This might be a Pokémon to keep a watch out because of the typing it has clearly!
Is it me or does Swirlix look more like an enemy best left for Yoshi XD. Swirlix is another Pokémon that was announced to be found in just one version of the game. Coming from PKMN X, This Fairy type Pokémon is ridiculously cute and I can’t fathom to see what its possible evolution…but it does look so adorable!
In Y, we get the other Fairy Pokémon, Spritzee! It looks even cuter than Swirlix and it might be looking like a flamingo for sure! I bet in its evolution, it might actually gain a Flying type but that’s all I can say right now lol.
THAT’S ALL THERE IS FROM THIS MONTH’S COROCORO, SEE YOU NEXT MONTH (ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY SAID IT’S GOING TO BE THE BIGGEST OF THE CENTURY!!!!)
