According to the gaming website Dual Pixels there has been a leak regarding the next Pokémon games. Their source, Geno, is the very same source that leaked correct information regarding Castlevania; Mirrors of Fate and Kingdom Hearts HD Remix. According Geno the next Pokémon games is titled Pokémon Plus and Minus. The lack of a Pokémon X/Y2 or Pokémon Z is interesting all to itself, having said that this information does not mean that such games do not exist. The article begins with a disclaimer saying that whilst everything Geno says may be true that doesn’t mean that the information is set in stone.
The new region’s name is currently unknown however Geno claims that it is based on South East Asia with one large peninsula and many smaller islands, which sounds oddly like Gen 3′s Hoenn region.
The three new starters names and design aren’t currently known but there is some detailed information on them. The water starter evolves into a water/steel typing and is a squat tear drop shaped humanoid that has a jar on its head. As it evolves it grows taller and the jar gets bigger until it needs a second set of arms to hold it on top of its head.
The fire starter evolves into a fire/fairy typing and is a small cute goat with fire blowing out of its horns. As is always the case with Pokémon as it evolves it looks less cute and more sinister. Its final evolution has curly ram like horns and a “motorcycle hot-rod-like look”, whatever that means.
The grass starter is probably the worst described Pokémon, it evolves into a grass/electric typing and begins with a leap for a face and a root for a body. Its final evolution is an electric producing palm tree “with each flower petal having a different face”, although I wasn’t aware that palm trees had flower petals this is what was described by Geno.
The main legendary for Pokémon Plus is based from a Shi Foo Lion and is typed as psychic/ground. The Pokémon Minus legendary is a Ghost/Fairy type “that has two dashes for eyes and is a hurricane-like appendages with many arms and hands”.
There is a new Pokémon type that is apparently similar to shinies, according to Geno they will change the game significantly. Whether or not they’re as rare and difficult to obtain as a shiny remains to be seen.
There’s an area referred to as the mainland which is apparently a persistent world environment similar to an MMO that is exclusive to the Terminal and is shared by both versions. The terminal wasn’t elaborated on much but from the wording of the article it seems to be a way to play on a big screen (to be specific it was referred to as home play) similar to the cable linking from the Pokémon stadium games on the Game Cube and Nintendo 64.
There’s more information on the new team rocket replacement along side other minor features but this is the major information released in this possible leak. Like with most rumours there is no way to tell whether or not this information is real, but time will reveal that eventually.
