RUMOR: 130 New Pokémon in X and Y, Talk to Your Pokémon With “3DS Technology”

New details have emerged for Pokémon X and Y in the form of a leak by someone who claims to work for the North American branch of the Pokémon Company as part of the localization team. The source claims that his job is to proof read text blurbs that may appear on the 3DS packaging, and while most of what he has seen is a generic advertisement for the game, his quotes reveal a few new details.

The source emphasized that, as he does not have any part in the game’s development, he is unable to answer questions. However, the small bit of text he provided is interesting by itself.

We know that Pokémon X and Y will bring the total number of Pokémon to over 700, up from the current 649. According to this source, X and Y will add in at least 130 more. Also interesting is that you will apparently be able to talk to your Pokémon through the 3DS mic. What purpose this will serve is unknown.

These rumors are simple and realistic enough to be believable, but as always, take rumors with a grain of salt. What new features would you like to see in Pokémon X and Y?

    Ohhh I’ve been curious as to what this new bond system they’re adding will do. I’m hoping it’ll be a significant change.

    • Erimgard

      Aww, you know you want to talk to your cute little Pikachu surrounded by judgmental strangers!

  • Staudle

    • Joseph Rizzo

      Well, If enough people play the game, then it may be accepted by society to yell at a DS.

  • Johan

    Its funny because I usually narrate my battles like if I was a actual trainer. Good to know this actually helps my bond with my pokemon.

    People keep saying this is gonna be DOOMED because of Hey You Pikachu, but I guess they’re too thick to realize that technology has changed a lot since the N64 days… sigh.

    This person is a proofreader that mixed up “Wonder” and “Wander”? Yeah, I’m calling Fake.

    • Ebain

      Haha. You posted seconds before I did. :P

    • Erimgard

      It could have actually been “wonder” intentionally. As in, traverse them in wonder. Or, this could have been what it looked like before he proof-read it.

  • Ebain

    The localization team isn’t doing very well if they haven’t caught the “Wonder through flourishing cities” typo yet.

    Maybe they’ll give you the option of telling your Pokemon what move to use while in battle instead of selecting the move using buttons?

  • I Will Rule You All

    Can’t wait for Pokemon #666

    • ………

      Oh, shit, we’re screwed

  • Jefersophio

    I would like to see new evolutions of old Pokemon. Please bring in the starters from each region too in the new X and Y Region. It’ll be cool if they made new types, and attacks. I wonder if they are going to keep on making more Pokemon generations after this one. And I’ve been drawing my whole life just to draw Pokemon and then I want the Pokemon Company to use them
    ( My Pokemon).

    if this is true the point that most got my attention “Which path will you take?” Does that mean there is a changing storyline based on choices you make? cause that would be awesome…
