CoroCoro Pokemon Info: New Zygarde Forms, New Anime (XY & Z)

The latest issue of CoroCoro graces us with quite a bit of new info on the future of Pokemon.

First of all, Zygarde is getting not 1, but 3 new forms. The little green blob we've been seeing is Zygarde's core form that acts as its brain. He will also be getting a dog like form called Zygarde 10% as well as the golem like form we've seen in teasers, Zygarde Perfect Form.

Greninja is also getting a new look in the anime. Whether this is a form, mega or just a mutation has yet to be seen.

Finally, we've gotten the announcement of a new anime, titled Pokemon XY & Z. The meaning of "Z" has yet to be revealed, I'll let you all speculate for yourselves.

The Greninja form is called "Satoshi Greninja" which would indicate some kind of human-Pokemon fusion.

Are we sure it's a new form and not just a random Greninja mutation Ash (Satoshi) has? I know they've done X's pokemon for events and such before.

That's gotta be anime exclusive. I don't see them doing that in the games. Unless they do some dumb spiky eared Pichu thing again.

But I guess this means it'll be Z or XZ/YZ, and not X2/Y2. Which is good, X and Y really need to be improved upon. They don't need sequels.

Satoshi Greninja might just indicate that Ash's Frogadier is going to evolve.

Might look slightly different than the average Greninja.

Its weird that the anime is starting so soon before a game release, but I guess this could lead to some surprises.

Huh. Interesting. The final form looks like it has both he X and Y box art legendaries incorporated. Probably similar to Kyurem black and white versions.

Wonder if you'll have to start as just the baby version in a battle if you want to have the last version in battle. Similar to slow start ability, but with forms. Probably not, since that would suck, and be very similar to Digimon evelutions.

So that 2016 Pokémon game is gonna be Z after all?

Either that or XZ and YZ. Maybe they'll go crazy and give us one called XY and one called Z. Would definitely make the anime title hold a bit more meaning. Either way, it pretty much confirms the current gen is sticking around for a bit longer.

I'll repeat what I said in the community thread about Zygarde Perfect Form being Gurren Lagann.

Also Zygarde's form from X/Y now seems to be Zygarde 50%.

Looks like a Mega for Greninja, the other Kalos starters will probably get Megas.

Greninja is pretty broken already lol. I can't imagine a Mega form lol.

I'm guessing Z whatever will probably come out soon if the anime is going to shift into promoting it.

Usually its the other way where the anime is way behind in promoting the newest game ~_~

Hmmm.... I might be overthinking but maybe a new Zubat evolution?

Could be. Exciting stuff.

Or maybe Pokemon Z, dunno which one of the two :p

Wonder if any other Pokemon will have something similar to this Greninja.

Would be cool if they add some mutation stuff into Z.

Volcanion still needs a movie or arc so we can finish it up. I am excited, really need to get back into it since I claim it as my favorite series.

Ash's Noibat evolves and it seems like his Sceptile will mega evolve too.

Awesome. I was hoping Ash's inevitable mega would be Sceptile rather than the more obvious Charizard (Those were the only two major choices, since otherwise we have like Glalie and Heracross as the mega for Ash's last slot, and that seemed unlikely)

Going off my previous post of the final form looking like a fusion of the other 2, maybe the new game will be called XYZ since that's the legendaries he looks like.

Wonder how many new formes/megas we will get in Z that won't be patched to ORAS or X/Y

Would totally be down for two versions of the sequel again. I'd buy both. I love playing through pokemon games.

Hopefully I'll have my living pokedex about done by the time these are coming out though.

There would have to release the game crazy quick after the announcement for that to work.

So when it evolves it just looks very similar to Ash? That is weird.

They can always shove Volcanion into the Zygarde movie , they won't drag this gen another year just to give it a movie

Stop trying to make Doberman happen. It's never going to happen.

I forsee Z earlier in the year and RGBY remake later in the year in 3D.

I don't think they're going to do RGBY remakes. I really don't understand why it is people expect this.

So Pokemon Z next year. Glad it wasn't released this fall. A year break from mainline Pokemon games was seriously needed for not getting fatigued.

Z should really be New 3DS exclusive ala Crystal on GBC to give some new life to that engine that most agree needs a tune-up, also Iwata said they intended to make more New 3DS exclusives and we've seen none sine Xenoblade 3D, there's no better choice.

Hoopa is the lowest-grossing Pokemon film released in Japan.

TPC ain't going to drag this generation any longer for the sake of a standalone Volcanion film. Probably going to be in the next one with the new Zygarde form.

Wouldn't be the first time

Pokémon Emerald Reveal - July 2004
Pokémon Emerald Release - September 2004

I'm still hedging my bets on February launch. Reveal next month maybe?

Wouldn't releasing in the Spring get in the way of Pokken for Wii U? And potentially Pokemon Go?

There wasn't a worldwide release at that time though (I remember getting it in Europe in october...2005). But I think it could release between the end of January and something like May.

I doubt they could get something much better and they would like to erase like 70% or more of their potential market

So now it has four forms and one is called cell form and the other perfect. Seems like a rip off of Digimon and DBZ. Must be running out of ideas...just saying.

Masuda would want as many people as possible to play the Pokemon games. There's no way in hell that would happen. I could see enhancements at most but not a full out exclusive game.
