Well, obviously there has really been no sun and moon news and it likely won't come until May 15th but in any event I have some ideas which are small enough not to devote a post to and large enough to be worth mentioning.

 After watching the Magearna Movie trailer several times, and thoroughly examining Magearna more closely I had the idea that perhaps the secret of Magearna is something inside of it.  Inside it's middle circle that looks like a pokeball.  So what is it? Well, borrowing from an idea that I've seen on the internet, perhaps there is 4 Zygarde cores, one for each color represented on Zygarde 100% form's chest. The same colors that coincide with the XY & SM logos.  We've seen the red and blue core, Z1 & Z2 as they're called in the anime, and these cores have allowed Team flare to bring Zygarde 10% and Normal Zygarde out (via the cores), but they haven't been able to bring about Zygarde 100% form. Here's my idea; what if the other two Zygarde cores are the necessary ingredient to bring about Zygarde 100% form?  I think it is a fair assumption to say that Zygarde 100% doesn't appear until the Magearna movie or next Mega Evolution act, (whichever comes out first, I don't know). Perhaps inside Magearna's body, perhaps its secret, are those two other Zygarde cores and this is why Zygarde will first appear in Magearna's movie (as seen in the trailer). 

Then there is this idea that I've seen that the fact that Magearna is a gear pokemon and Volcanion is a steam pokemon is a hint towards Great Britain being the next region.  The fundamentals of the idea is that gears and steam are like steampunk and this means Britain. I don't hold that view, but Britain was the first country in the Western World to industrialize and this involved the invention of the steam engine, which requires steam and gears, that would be the line of argument I would take.  Then there is the detective pikachu game which is a lot like Sherlock Holmes, the popular novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a renowned British literary figure. The logic follows that these things point in the direction of Britain and Britain is near France (Kalos) and in this way Britain will be the new region in SM and the two regions will be connected. I also believe that kalos will be featured in the new game, but I don't think these things point to Britain, primarily because of my belief that the region will be based off of Hawaii.  For one thing, I think with the advent of shows like Sherlock, and Elementary, a Sherlock Holmes revival has swept the world, and its popularity is the reason why this detective pikachu game is coming out.  Then as far as the argument goes that we have a gear and steam pokemon, I don't think this is a good argument because Magearna, though it features gears, is not the gear pokemon, it is the artificial pokemon (Klingklang and its counterparts are the gear pokemon). Again, the primary evidence I have for Hawaii, and the evidence which I feel is the strongest for the next region, is the fact that the vehicles in the SM concept art have rainbows on their license plates, just like in Hawaii.

Then there was one last idea that I had. Many people think that because Corocoro leaked the Box arts with the flash over the legendaries, this means that the legendaries would've been something more shocking than two new legendaries, like Xerneas and Yveltal forms, or Mega Ho oh and Mega Lugia. I honestly think that these games will feature two new legendaries, but I have had the reoccurring thought (that struck me when I first saw the Sun and Moon logos) that perhaps Volcanion and Magearna are the legendaries for these games.  The Moon logo reminds me of Magearna, and the Sun logo (not as much) reminds me of Volcanion.  If the region takes place in Hawaii then Volcanion would make sense as the region would have a Volcano.  On the other hand, Hoenn has a volcano, and it wouldn't make sense that they'd be distributing the Sun legendary when the movie comes out.  And again, I don't think this is the case, but people are making crazy suggestions, like Mega Ho oh and Mega Lugia, so I thought I'd give my crazy suggestion.

Until the news comes out, that's all.

While Mewtwo Doesn't have the "ラ" character in its name, Dark Mewtwo does.

That's my guess.




    Corocoro has leaked this month and brought the long anticipated information on Zygarde's new forms.  However I have to say it is somewhat disappointing; of course this is my own opinion, but it just seemed like there was a lot going for new pokemon, or new region or both.  This leak doesn't disprove any of that but based upon what we now know about the cell blob and Zygarde I'd say it is unlikely that those other things will come to pass.  It would seem as though gamefreak is planning on just developing a better more intricate story for the game, rather than putting loads of new stuff, which is fine, and seems somewhat obvious now that Pokemon Go has been announced, because if they've been spending and will be spending all their time developing that, then they'll likely not have a ton of time to work on Z.  Remember that they said 2016 will be the year of Zygarde, and so that lets us know that the game is likely not coming out until next year, so they still have time, but I'm thinking they're gonna cut back on this game, so to speak.  Like it'll be another emerald, or platinum, but perhaps with better story and different characters because again, Lysandre is probably dead.  
    With regards to what leaked, I'd say that it probably threw everybody for a loop.  Of course by this I mean, not that we weren't expecting Zygarde to have two forms, because we had found the two new moves, but I think just how strange the form(s) turned out to be.  By this I am of course referring to the (dog form) 10% form, which looks completely unlike something I would've associated with thousand waves or thousand arrows.  I'd say new region is out of the picture because the strange souvenir looks nothing like either of Zygarde's forms.  With respect to the intrigue of ash's Greninja, which is heavily shrouded in mystery according to the leak, it was attained by ash when he and Greninja had an unbreakable bond.  Sounds an awful lot like mega evolution, but if I had to call it as of now, I'd say it is not.  If it is a mega evolution then wow, they've given up on designing pokemon, if it is not, as I suspect, then it is most likely just a costume type thing related to the anime, that maybe comes out with an event pokemon that looks like it, something akin to spiky-eared Pichu or Krookodile with sunglasses.  The information says that this form was attained once 100 years ago, which leads me to believe that this is essentially an AZ Floette type deal.  And that's about it, so I guess we just wait until next month, assuming the information that leaks isn't related to Pokemon Go.
 




I think by now it is almost undeniable that Pokemon Z or whatever is to be its placeholder will be the next pokemon game.  That said, I wouldn't rule out inter-region travel, or new pokemon.  My speculations have become well developed in the past few days. 

  • Zygarde: I am fairly certain the corocoro monster at the end of the XY2 Movie is Zygarde, whether a mega evolution or form, I can't say, and at this moment don't particularly care.  However this form or mega evolution is undoubtedly important in inferring what will come next. It seems to me that Zygarde with its new form or mega evolution, and its newly found moves, Thousand Arrows and Thousand Waves, will be the basis for the Pokemon Z plot.  Thousand Arrows grounds flying type pokemon, Thousand waves makes it impossible for a terrestrial or levitating pokemon to flee.  It seems to me that this spells out a showdown between Zygarde and Yveltal, or Zygarde and Xerneas, where Zygarde makes them pay for the damage that the ultimate weapon caused on the ecosystem and was powered by them.  Of course Xerneas won't be able to run away and Yveltal won't be able to fly away, due to Zygarde's new moves, and I am betting that is intentional. The existence of the two moves is perhaps evidence that the player will again choose which legendary pokemon to battle Zygarde with, ex. B2 & W2. However personally I'm more inclined towards just a Pokemon Z stand alone. Is this new Zygarde form the Strange Souvenir? I'd have to say no, which led me to further materialize a theory pertaining to the next game.

  • New Pokemon: My theories about Kalos and Unova being connected, and about the strange souvenir have collided and become more substantively formed into a theory about a pokemon Z or whatever the next game happens to be.  Whether the little blob thing pictured above is in fact a new pokemon, I can't say, (if it is I'd be wondering why Sugimori is slacking off) However the evidence seems fairly definitively in its favor in terms of being a new pokemon. It reminds me of that cactus owl grass starter pokemon that many people believed was a new starter for B2 & W2, however this one has the benefit of being real.  Given the likelihood that it is a new pokemon, I'd further speculate that Pokemon Z will have new pokemon, and given that, I think there has to be a new region.  However I am thinking this region will have to directly adjacent to Kalos, because after all, the strange souvenir is said to be from a region very far away from Kalos.  And I am thinking that it wouldn't be able to be called a sequel unless it had the player returning to Kalos.  Again though, my theory of unova and Kalos being connected doesn't seem to pan out for this next game, because ultimately this is not a pokemon from Unova, (Unless of course it is some sort of strange Reuniclus pre-evolution, but that is highly unlikely) So perhaps this new region is located above Kalos.
One last thing to note, I've noticed that some people are theorizing that Zygarde and Arceus, as well as the strange souvenir are all somehow interconnected.  The justification for this is said to be that both pokemon are the order givers of their trio, meaning they keep the forces that the two legendaries represent in check.  In this case Life and Death, in Arceus case, Time, Space, and Distortion.  It is also said that because the orbs of the sinnoh trio are found in the same cave as Zygarde, that this points towards it being connected to Arceus. My conclusion with regards to this theory are as follows; First off, I'd have trouble buying the notion of it being unique like Arceus in that it is an order giver, the way I see it, this fails to account for massive overlap in the role of legendaries.  For example, Groudon and Kyogre represent land and sea, and sky (Rayquaza) keeps them in check.  But then the problem is, Zygarde is supposed to be the protecter of the ecosystem, a role many believed to be filled by Celebii and Shaymin, but one that ultimately dwarfs Rayquaza's role, which would interconnect Zygarde with the Hoenn trio. In that same way, Zekrom and Reshiram symbolize truth and ideals, and Kyurem is the mediator, but it is not exactly clear what Kyurem represents so that is a vacancy that would have to be accounted for before throwing Zygarde into the mix with other legendary trio.  I guess my main point is that being a mediator or order giver is not unique to Arceus and Zygarde, in fact it is far from it.  With regards to the orbs in Terminus cave, I wouldn't be so quick to associate anything of meaning with that.  They had to find a way to get them in the game and it seemed convenient to put them in a cave with a legendary dragon pokemon.  After all if we suggested that connection we'd have to stand by that assertion and try to justify the location of the orbs in ORAS, which is the bottom of the ocean, and I am fairly certain no one is going to be looking for links between Kyogre and Arceus.

All in all, I am really hyped and excited to see what comes next.  I am hoping the next batch of news comes quick, because for me speculating on corocoro leak information is incredibly helpful at passing the time while waiting for the next titles.
Who thinks there are more mega evolutions that have yet to be revealed? We have one month of corocoro left before the release of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and we know from previous corocoro leaks that Rayquaza is said to hold the key to mega evolution as well, and we just got a tease of it in this most recent trailer:
 
I had the feeling that mega milotic and mega flygon would definitely be in ORAS, but now I somehow think that Rayquaza is the sole and final mega evolution to be revealed for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and I presume corocoro will feature three new mega evolutions just as it did in this most recent leak but they will be mega rayquaza, mega latios, and mega latias, the both of which we already knew existed.

Will there be more mega evolutions revealed for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, if so what will they be?
