3 new Pokemon have been discovered. They are said to be all Mythical Pokemon, which is the official term that the Pokemon Company now uses when referring to Legendary Pokemon that can only be obtained through special events.
While discussions about these 3 Pokemon only started getting popular a couple days ago, they were actually discovered as early as this past July.
We even posted about these names here. The original source of these Pokemon is Pokexperto, whom some of you may recognize as the person who was responsible for leaking the entire Unova Pokedex before Pokemon Black and Pokemon White were released.
Below are their rumored Pokedex numbers, typings, English names and Japanese names.
#719 Rock/Fairy Diancie （ディアンシー）
#720 Fire/Water Volcanion （ボルカニオン）
#721 Psychic/Ghost Hoopa （フーパ）
There is a very good chance that these 3 Pokemon will turn out to be real. As originally reported by Pokexperto, they were included in list along with 11 other Pokemon. Those 11 Pokemon were all later revealed to be real and can be found in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y.
This is certainly great news for fans who were disappointed with the low number of new Pokemon introduced in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. Unfortunately, the 3DS games cannot be hacked, so there’s currently no way to view the 3 new Pokemon’s in-game models and other information until Nintendo and the Pokemon Company officially reveal them.
In the mean time, anyone want to take a stab at what they will look like? I think Diancie is the new Mew/Celebi/Jirachi/Shaymin/Manaphy/Victini of this gen. Volcanion makes me think of a fire lion, but we already have one in Pyroar. I have no idea what Hoopa will end up looking like. The last Mythical Pokemon in the Pokedex is usually really powerful, but the name “Hoopa” doesn’t sound very threatening.
By the way, if you attempt to do a trade on the GTS, don’t be surprised if you come across some users requesting for these Pokemon in return.
