It's been two days since the huge Corcoro leak revealed evolved forms for the three new starter Pokémon, new mega forms and a few additional creatures that hadn't been seen before. A new trailer for Pokémon X and Y was released this morning whose sole purpose seems to be confirming the leak.
The English names for the starter evolutions were the first things revealed in this morning's trailer. Grass starter Chespin's chestnut-inspired evolution is called Quilladin. Fennekin evolves into the fiery Braixen, who appears to use its stick-like tail as a magic wand, giving further support to the fan theory that this Pokémon is based on the classic depiction of witches. Finally, the Water-type Froakie evolves into Frogadier.
The two new fossil Pokémon were the next to be confirmed. Tyrunt appears to be the Rock/Dragon type that was revealed in Corocoro, while Amaura is the Rock/Ice creature with the new “freeze skin” ability.
It has already been revealed that players can customize their trainer's appearance, but it seems that a new Pokémon named Furfrou can also have its fur groomed into various styles, three of which were shown in today's trailer. In addition to that, certain Pokémon will have drastically different forms depending on their gender. These gender differences were first seen in generation 4, though X and Y will expand upon that concept. The example shown in the trailer was Meowstic, a Psychic-type cat whose moves are determined by its gender. It seems that the same may go for the recently revealed Pyroar.
Garchomp and Mewtwo's new forms were also shown. Nothing more was revealed about Team Flare and their motivations. Judging by this and the slew of other trailers that have been released, it seems that the sixth generation will include a ton of new features. Pokémon X and Y will release worldwide on October 12th and are exclusive to the 3DS.
