This is a pretty major spoiler, so I’ll save all the details for after the break – the final evolutions of the starter Pokemon in Pokemon X & Pokemon Y have leaked, including their names and final Type combinations. Keep reading after the break for more details and screenshots.
Remember, the following information reveals some MAJOR SPOILERS about Pokemon X & Pokemon Y; you have been warned:
Keep scrolling down…
Keep going, if you dare…
First, we have Chessnaught – the final form of Chespin, who ends up as a Grass/Fighting-type monster. Chessnaught will have the Overgrow ability.
Next is Delphox – the Fire/Psychic-type evolution of Finnekin, with the Blaze ability.
Last but not least is Greninja, the Water/Dark-type third stage of Froakie, with the Torrent ability.
You can see the leaked images of the starter evolutions below:
Thoughts? I was hoping to avoid spoiling the final forms of the Gen. VI starters until I had them myself in Pokemon X & Pokemon Y; that being said, I am pretty happy to see some third-stage starters with brand-new Type combinations.
You might have noticed that these Pokemon actually have another Type “trio” – in addition to Grass/Fire/Water, these Pokemon pick up Fighting/Psychic/Dark, another perfect rock-paper-scissors combination in the series.
The second type actually makes each fully-evolved Gen. VI starter Pokemon even stronger against the opposing creature that it would usually be super-effective against. For example, Chessnaught’s Grass/Fighting combo is incredibly effective against the Water/Dark-type Greninja, but almost completely ineffective against Delphox’s Fire/Psychic types.
Pokemon X & Y are headed to retailers on October 12.
