Let’s face it, there have been more fake scans in reference to Pokemon X and Y than office copiers making butt prints. So, needless to say, I waited for other gaming sites to confirm this scan before I posted it. Of course, there isn’t a lot of detail but it appears as though the blacked out creature above is none other than Evee’s next evolution. Ninfia, at least in outline form, made its debut in the latest issue of CoroCoro. It will make another appearance in the next Pokemon move, “Extremespeed Genesect and Mewtwo’s Awakening”
What do you think Ninfia will look like? If you create any conceptual fan art, feel free to post it on our Facebook page (please no body scans). What is your favorite Evee Evolution?

As we approach the 15th anniversary of the Pokemon anime (September 2013) I thought it appropriate to take a look back on Ash’s journey. The above graph shows us the Pokemon he has caught from the beginning and forward.
The Japanese Pokémon site was updated earlier today with a link to a new trailer for the upcoming Pokémon Black 2 and White 2. Interestingly, this trailer is fully animated in the style of the Pokémon television anime, and showcases our new male hero in some fairly sticky situations. The trailer is animated beautifully, and seems to indicate a more mature tone for the franchise, as Black and White themselves have already done. Elesa’s fairly risqué wardrobe and introduction, Emboar’s intensity, Seviper blatantly attacking a trainer – it’s not exactly “dark,” but it’s clear that the story and characters of late have been tweaked to appeal more to older players.
The trailer, of course, does more than dish out plates of fanservice for battle-lovers. Potential spoilers for the first games lie ahead, so avert your eyes now if you’re not already in the know.
N is clearly returning with the dragon he rode off on at the first game’s conclusion. Team Plasma is far from defeated, though they appear to have a new enemy in addition to our main hero, who is seen conversing with him at a fountain under the shadow of night. Also returning is the Shadow Triad whose allegiance, at this point, is something of a mystery. Seeing as N’s motives are unknown, and Ghetsis ordered the Triad to stop looking for him whilst on the run, their role in everything is going to be very interesting. Oh, and Unova is indeed very much covered in ice in some places, even within cities. The question is, why?
Why, indeed? This trailer raises more questions than it answers, and hopefully the mysterious air surrounding this game will remain as such until it’s released so everyone can dive headlong into its story for themselves. I’ve a feeling this one’s going to be pretty special. It’s a wonderful time to be a Pokémon fan.
