An anonymous, supposedly ‘genuine’ source claims that the rumored “Fairy-type” is a new type of Pokémon that will be introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. According to the source, the newly discovered Eevee evolution, Sylveon, is “Fairy-type,” and is weak against Poison and Steel-type Pokémon, immune to Dragon-types, super-effective against Dragon, Dark and Fire-types. Below you can read more rumors on “Fairy-type” Pokémon, along with some unconfirmed details on Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.
- Fairy will be a new type. It is weak to Poison and Steel, immune to Dragon, super effective against Dragon, Dark, and Fighting, and Fire and Psychic-type Pokemon take half damage from it.
- Sylveon is Fairy-type. Some older Pokemon will be reclassified to Fairy, such as Mawile (Steel/Fairy).
- Mewtwo has two new formes, not just one. Both are activated via items.
- The professor’s English name is Patrice.

Nintendo of America has shared more details on Pokemon X & Y for the Nintendo 3DS. The game takes place in a new region called Kalos, where players will encounter beautiful forests, thriving cities, and many never-before-seen Pokemon.
The central city in Kalos is Lumiose City, which is described by Nintendo as a metropolis featuring a tower that is set to become an iconic structure in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. The game also adds to the more than 640 Pokemon that have been encountered in previous games. We posted the latest trailer for the game which can be viewed, here. Anyway, here’s some more information on the Pokemon which you will encounter in Pokemon X & Y.
- The cowardly Pokémon Helioptile, a Normal- and Electric-type Pokémon, can generate enough electricity through sunbathing to power machinery. But wise Trainers won’t be deterred by Helioptile’s lack of bravery. It knows Parabolic Charge, a brand-new move where Helioptile attacks everything around it. Helioptile’s HP is restored by half the damage taken by those hit.
- Fletchling, a Normal- and Flying-type Pokémon, sings with a beautiful chirp that is sure to delight any Trainer. Although it is known to be very friendly, Fletchling will suddenly unleash relentless attacks once it’s in battle. For example, when it uses its Fire-type move Flame Charge in battle, in addition to doing damage, Fletchling’s Speed increases every time.
- With a leaf always in its mouth and an intimidating glare that is rarely effective, Fighting-type Pokémon Pancham shows its playful side when it lets out a little smile when its head is pat. Pancham can learn a brand-new move, Parting Shot, which not only lowers an opponent’s Attack and Special Attack, but also allows Pancham to switch out for another Pokémon in a Trainer’s party during battle.
- A new method of transportation—riding the brand-new Pokémon, Gogoat. This large Grass-type Pokémon is a reliable way to travel certain parts of Lumiose City. In battle, it can use Horn Leech to recover HP equal to half the damage dealt by this move.
The latest edition of the Japanese publication CoroCoro has revealed that Pokémon X and Y will be separated into three different areas.

More Pokémon news is said to be coming in the next edition of CoroCoro, which will be released in June.
Capcom officially announced yesterday that Phoenix Wright is back to bring justice in the court room to the west in the newly named Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies. However, they also revealed the Nintendo 3DS game will only be available as a digital download. Today, the company has responded to a query from Nintendo Everything asking about the decision to leave retail in the shadows and plough forward with digital-only releases in the Nintendo eShop:
“Historically it’s been tough to attract long-term retail support for Ace Attorney titles. With the release of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies we wanted as many people as possible to be able to enjoy the game for as long as possible. With that in mind we have opted for a digital only release via the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
“We understand that this decision may upset fans who wanted to have a physical version of the title to add to their collection but we believe this direction is the best to take to ensure that fans are able to enjoy the game at their own leisure.
“We will be confirming details on the price point soon so please stay tuned for more information on the latest in the Ace Attorney series.”

Amazon has put up a listing of “New Super Luigi” for the Nintendo 3DS. The game the online retailer is referring to is actually called New Super Luigi U, and it’s not a Nintendo 3DS game – it’s not even a full game; it’s downloadable content for people who own a copy of Wii U-exclusive New Super Mario Bros. U. When New Super Luigi U is released later this year, Luigi will be able to traverse through levels that were specifically designed for his abilities.
Capcom has confirmed that Ace Attorney 5 will be coming to North America and Europe this fall. The game will be titled Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies and will be released as a digital download on the Nintendo 3DS via the eShop. It’s down to Phoenix Wright and his team at the Wright Anything Agency to discover the cause of the destruction. Players will have to battle it out in court against Gaspen Payne, the younger brother of Winston Payne from previous Ace Attorney titles, as they defend the accused.
