I was planning on talking about something else today, but I guess this'll wait, because boy I have huge news for you! Serebii made a colossal blunder that was found out today, which revealed the name and typing of the three gen 6 event legendaries. You know the location details pages he has for each Pokémon, such as this one? Well, someone tried the experiment of replacing the Pokémon number in the URL with 719, 720 and 721, and lo and behold, the pages existed. For a while anyway, because they were taken down since then.
Now, how do we know that these are real? Simple: we use the new GTS function that allows us to ask for and look for any Pokémon we know the name of. If the name doesn't exist, then it's rejected. And as it turns out, the GTS accepts these three names, so we know these are for real. We've known for years that Serebii has access to juicy insider stuff that he's not allowed to share, but still, how hard can it be to program your site so that these three events aren't acknowledged at all until they're released? When you think about it, this is kind of weird.
Even weirder is the fact that he has catch rates listed for them. Maybe they're filler data that were the result of a copypaste job and he just didn't delete them because we're not supposed to see that stuff, who knows. But if they turn out to be real, then it means he's holding out info that doesn't need to stay hidden on us. Stuff like egg moves, catch rates, new stats for old Pokémon, which he's giving us in tiny bites on purpose to look inconspicuous. Fortunately I'm not one for tinfoil hats, so I'm not going to sling mud at him, and even if that was the case, well, if he wants to keep a working relationship with Nintendo and friends, he pretty much has to do stuff like this.
As for the Pokémon themselves, literally all we know is the typing, which definitely doesn't look like filler data since, well, Volcanion is part Fire. Speaking of which, I think we've all wanted a Fire/Water Pokémon for a long time now, and it's about time we got one. Really looking forward to seeing its theme. As for Hoopa... well, the name doesn't exactly fill me with hope, except for the fact that it's Psychic/Ghost, which doesn't at all suggest some lamewad Pokémon, especially since it's an event legendary. As for Diancie... Rock/Fairy, same as Carbink. Let's hope it's a good bit better, shall we?
