As usual, the latest issue of CoroCoro magazine has a handful of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y reveals. This month's issue includes the reveal of five brand new Pokemon, including the evolution of Pancham, the baby bear chewing on a leaf. Needless to say, he grows up fast and he grows up strong. The others include a Dark/Psychic Pokemon and its evolution, and two Fairy-type Pokemon which will each be exclusive to either Pokemon X or Pokemon Y.
Let's first not that the names of these Pokemon are Japanese, as they've yet to be officially unveiled in western markets yet. Expect those details either later today or some time this week. Here are our five Pokemon, with some translated details from Serebii:
- Goronda - Panda Pokemon with a Fighting/Dark type, evolved form of Pancham and knows Hammer Arm
- Maika - Squid Pokemon with a Dark/Psychic type, knows the move Turn Over
- Karamanero - Squid Pokemon evolves from Maika, also a Dark/Psychic-type that knows Turn Over and Hypnosis
- Peroppafu - A cotton candy Fairy-type Pokemon that will be exclusive to Pokemon X, knows Drain Kiss
- Shushup - A bird-like Fairy-type perfume Pokemon that will be exclusive to Pokemon Y, knows Aromatherapy
Check out images of the in the head, click to zoom, and let us know what you think of the new Pokemon. I'm a big fan of the doofy looking cotton candy Fairy-type Pokemon, but I think I'll still be going with Pokemon Y. I'll have to trade someone for that stupid looking guy!
Pokemon X and Y will be released exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS on October 12. Stay tuned for more information soon, including what CoroCoro calls the "biggest scoop of the century."
