Some background details have been revealed in regards to the leaked pocket monster from "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y," Hoopa. According to a report from Gameranx on May 20, a short event will trigger when the player talks with a non-playable character with the creature in his or her party. The NPC provides a cautionary tale about the power of Hoopa.

The pocket monster has the ability to use its three rings to move objects. At its greatest strength, the creature could shift entire islands. All of the goods acquired using this method are stored in a secret lair located in the middle of the desert. An organization tired to exploit Hoopa's abilities but had to abandon plans after finding out that numerous objects started to disappear. Eventually, the headquarters of the company were moved to the aforementioned lair.

An official method to acquiring Hoopa has not yet been announced by Nintendo. Even so, hackers were able to find a way to capture to pocket monster by messing with the code strings of "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y." The same hacks were able to reveal two other creatures, Diancie and Volcanion. The former pocket has been officially confirmed by the publisher as a distribution event gift as Japanese players can download it by purchasing a ticket towards an upcoming animated movie. The North American plans have not yet been revealed.

Based on the Diancie's release strategy, Hoopa and Volcanion should also end up being distributed during special events. Nintendo should be revealing more details in the relatively near future as they are preparing to ramp up promotions for the next installments of the series, "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby." As a result, the publisher may stop advertising "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y" with special events by the end of this year.
