Pokémon X and Y Rumours - Hold a 3DS Upside Down to Evolve on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

RUMOURS: More unconfirmed Pokémon X and Pokémon Y rumours have surfaced, highlighting evolutions, rivals and classic starters, following on from the last batch.
Remember - these with a dollop of salt until confirmed or denied by Nintendo/Game Freak. Whilst some of these are perhaps a little… farfetched, other Pokémon tidbits are interesting to read into.

  • A new way of evolution - Inkay into Malimar - would require players to hold their 3DS upside down when it levels up. It's type would be Dark/Psychic.
  • A Psychic Pokémon known as Espurr would evolve into Meowstick.
  • Pancham would evolve into Pangoro in the level 30s, but would require a Dark-type Pokémon in your party. It's type is Fighting/Dark.Another Professor, Sycamore, gives the player Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle.
  • There'll be two rivals as in Pokémon Black / Pokémon White - one is friendly, the other a traditional competitive rival. The friendlier one gifts you his or her fully evolved starter at the end of the game.
  • HM exists in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, but there are less of them this time round.
  • A Poison-type attack known as Belch has a base power of 120 and requires a held berry to use it.
  • A new Fairy type attack called Draining Kiss heals the use with the same amount as damage dealt with a base power of 60.
  • The third version of Mewtwo is said to look similar to Mew's design.
  • The Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, final evolutions are: Fire/Psychic, Grass/Dark, and Water/Fighting.
What do you think of these latest batch of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y rumours?

this is such lies  the only thing true on this is the final  starter evolutions

I hope they have different methods of evolution

Definitely, will be really interesting and make evolutions a bit more exciting instead of the usual level X and then evolve process.

The third version of Mewtwo is said to look similar to Mew's design.

i like the idea of turning the ds upside down so that it evolves, that'll be an interesting looking pokemon :p

Oh my god. Draining Kiss confirmed. A squid Pokemon that (most likely) evolves by being held upside down confirmed. Pangoro confirmed. That means this is most likely legit!!!

Inkay DOES evolve when the 3ds is held upside down and the final starter evolutions are false except Fennekins
