Pokemon X & Y Gym Trainer and New Pokemon Revealed

Posted on June 13, 2013 AT 10:32am

Japanese magazine CoroCoro has released some new Pokemon X and Y details, including the names of a few new Pokemon and the first look at one of the game’s gym leaders.

One of the magazine scans shows a new character called Sana along with another called Pansy, who will appear in the anime with her Pokemon Gogoat and Helioptile in July. The scan also featured our first look at one of the game’s gym leaders called Viola, who appears to be a bug Gym Leader in Hakudan City.

The game’s starting town is called Asame Town and contains three characters, Sana, Tieruno, and Toroba, who are all starting a journey at the same time as you. The town is also home to the opposite gender of your main character called Callum or Serena.

Finally the magazine features the pre-evolutions of Vivillon, who was shown in the latest trailer, called Kofukimushi and Kofuurai. Next up is the Lion Cub Pokemon Shishiko who is a Fire / Normal-type. Last is Furabebe, the Lone Flower Pokemon, who is a Fairy-type and knows the move Fairy Wind.
