The pocket monster is a mix between the rock and fairy types. It will be introduced with an upcoming movie called “Cocoon of Destruction & Diancie.” In the “Pokedex” in-game device of “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y,” Diancie will be appearing as 719th pocket monster on the list.

Nintendo has not yet revealed plans as to how the new creature can be acquired. However, the publisher usually sends out special pocket monsters as gifts wirelessly online or through specific hot spot locations.

The official confirmation of Diancie gives credence to a hacker who managed to find three unannounced characters in the data files of “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.” He was able to discover Volcanion and Hoopa along with the aforementioned new pocket monster. You can find some screens of the three, along with several other shots from the video games, in the slideshow to the left of the article.

Although “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y” were both released in Oct. of last year, Nintendo looks to be supporting the two new releases with new promotional giveaways.
