Default [SPOILER] Pokémon X and Y Localisation Details

Some more information has surfaced, mostly on localisation of the X and Y Pokémon, NPCs, and features revealed earlier this week! There are a few more interesting reveals as well!

Pokémon English Names:
  • Hariboogu (Chespin's evolution) is called Quilladin.
  • Teerunaa (Fennekin's evolution) is called Braixen.
  • Gekogashira's (Froakie's evolution) is called Frogadier.
  • Chigorasu (the tyrannosaurus fossil Pokémon) is called Tyrunt.
  • Amarusu (the ice dinosaur fossil Pokémon) is called Amaura.
  • Torimian (the poodle Pokémon) is called Furfrou.
  • Nyaonikusu (the gender-differing Psychic cat Pokémon) is called Meowstic.

Character Names:
  • The notably all-female admins of Team Flare are Celosia (purple hair), Aliana (orange hair), Bryony (green hair), and Mable (blue hair).
  • Team Flare also has a main scientist, who goes by the name Xerosic.
  • The actress Karune who will encounter you numerous times during the adventure is known as Diantha.

Pokémon Moveset, Ability, and other Details:
  • Pyroar has aesthetically differing appearance between genders.
  • Details on customizing Furfrou's appearance has been expanded upon. You can customize it into any of 3 forms, but it must be maintained or it will revert to its original form.
  • Furfrou learns the move Baby Doll Eyes, a Fairy-type priority move (though to what extent is unknown) and has the chance of lowering the opponent's Attack.
  • Tyrunt is confirmed to learn Dragon Tail.
  • Tyrunt's ability will be called Strong Jaw, which increases the power of biting moves like Crunch. Amaura's ability is called Refrigerate, which makes Normal-type moves Ice-type moves instead.
  • Tyrunt is borne from the Jaw Fossil, and Amaura from the Sail Fossil.
  • Mega Mewtwo X is confirmed to have an increased Attack stat. Mega Garchomp has increased Attack AND Special Attack, at the cost of Speed.

Type Matchup Details:
  • Ghost-type Pokémon cannot be prevented from switching. For example, moves like Mean Look have no effect on them and abilities like Shadow Tag will not work on them.
  • Electric-type Pokémon can no longer become paralyzed by any means, including through passive effects such as with Body Slam.
  • Grass-type Pokémon are no longer affected by moves that involve spores/powders; Stun Spore, PoisonPowder, Sleep Powder, and maybe Spore do not work.

New Features:
  • There will be a feature allowing you to take 10 second videos (called Trainer PR videos), featuring you and your Pokémon. The mechanics of how this will be done are unknown, but you will be able to adjust camera angles, edit expressions, and even customize the background music.
  • The new Global Link website will be mobile-friendly with its own version that opens on October 12th, with the actual Global Link website going live later in the month.
  • Disconnecting from a wi-fi battle will now result in a game loss.

NOW THIS!....This is gonna shake up a lot of things, Specifically the Metagame.
Specifically the whole, Electric types can't be paralyzed...which doesn't make sense cause Paralysis is different than putting fire on fire, or freezing ice, and Paralysis is more universal...but eh.
Refrigerate is a Sweet sounding ability

Added info that I forgot regarding Mega Mewtwo X and Mega Garchomp.
EDIT: Also added sources because I forgot that too. Derp.

When they say "mobile friendly" they better mean "smartphone and tablet" friendly.

I wonder what format the videos will be in. Internal format or some kind of export-able format? I hope it's the latter...

Ever gotten your Gloom poisoned *from moves like Poison Sting? I have. This probably means dual typings with Poison cannot be poisoned anymore.

But that doesn't make any sense; if Poison-types could be poisoned, then why would Toxic Orb not activate on them, and even if the situation with dual-typing being an issue, then why would every Poison-Type in the game, not just mono-Poison-types, not be affected by Toxic Spikes? Or, again, the Toxic Orb for that matter?

Also: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wi...e_Pok.C3.A9mon
http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Poison_(type)
http://www.serebii.net/games/status.shtml#poison
http://www.psypokes.com/lab/status.php
http://www.smogon.com/bw/articles/bw_status#poison

Almost every major authority on Pokémon agrees that Poison-type Pokémon cannot be poisoned in any way, be it by passive effect or by actual use of a status infliction. I'm not normally so staunch in my view, but I am in this case because I'm pretty much 99% sure that Poison-types were never able to be poisoned. That said, I can't really explain your Gloom getting poisoned. It's illogical, unless its type was changed somehow.

And just to clarify, I've used many Grass/Poison Pokémon throughout my runs (be it Gloom, Weepinbell, Bulbasaur, Roselia, and even the Amoonguss I'm using in my nuzlocke right now) but I've never, EVER seen a Poison-type Pokémon poisoned outside of some ridiculous coincidence, but only because the Pokémon's type was altered by something like Soak or whatnot. I will keep on the lookout for a second (er, sixth?) opinion, but this is the belief I'm standing by...

I know that NOW they absorb Toxic Spikes and yata yata yata. I'm talking about as a secondary effect, not using Poison Powder on a Poison type. That clearly won't work, lol.
