Diancie can create diamonds out of thin air by compressing the carbon in the atmosphere with its hands. It uses these jewels in battle to attack enemies and protect itself.

Nintendo also listed some stats for Diancie in “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.” The creature is described as a “Jewel Pokemon” that has a combination type of rock and fairy with an ability called “clear body.” It is also not very big, measuring at just above two feet in height and a little less than 20 pounds in weight. You can check out some screens of Diancie and other pocket monsters in the slideshow located to the left of the article. The stat details can be viewed below:

  • Species: Jewel Pokemon
  • Type: Rock/Fairy
  • Ability: Clear Body
  • Height: 2' 04"
  • Weight: 19.4 lbs.

The publisher has not yet announced the details as to how Diancie will be added in “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.” The only way to acquire the new pocket monster in the two games currently is by using an unknown hack. Nintendo will most likely distribute the creature through some kind of promotional event in the future.

With the addition of Diancie, “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y” both have a robust roster of over 700 pocket monsters.
