English names revealed for June CoroCoro Pokemon

Pokemon X & Y — 14 June, 2013

Nintendo have published another gameplay trailer showing the first gym in Pokemon X/Y. It's a Bug-type gym whose leader Viola is a keen photographer. (Continue below to see the video.)

Flabébé, Litleo, Scatterbug, Spewpa

The video also names the Pokemon announced by CoroCoro yesterday. They are, from left to right in the above image, Flabebe, Litleo, Scatterbug and Spewpa. The latter two form the evolution chain for Vivillon.

Litleo can learn a new move Noble Roar, which lowers the target's Attack and Special Attack.

Interestingly, Flabébé marks the first time a Pokemon's English name includes an accented character, and only the third time a special character is included (after Nidoran♀ and Nidoran♂). The e-acute adds further ties with France, on which the region Kalos is based.


Here is the gameplay video:
