“The gym leader with a burning passion for inventing.”

He has white skin, blonde hair, and wears a blue bodysuit with a a yellow collar and yellow stripes above the knees and ankles. His backpack has robot arms with moon and sun-like devices attached to them. His reflected circular glasses make his expression unable to determine. His preferred Pokemon type is unknown, but given his “inventor” status, we would guess Lightning and/or Steel.

He has brown skin and hard black hair, with decorative yellow, blue, and red stones on his head, and wears a tight black shirt and gray pants that cut off above the ankles. His preferred Pokemon type is unknown, but given his rugged appearance and rock-looking hair, we would guess Rock and/or Ground.

Professor, Team, and PSS

Professor Platanu

The Pokemon professor of the Kalos region is Professor Patanu. He’ll give the player one of three Pokemon (Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie) at the beginning of the game. He has seaweed-like black hair and wears a blue shirt underneath his lab coat. He’ll also challenge the player to a Pokemon match.

Team Flare

One of the organizations working behind the scenes in the Kalos region. Its group members consist of both men and women who wear scarlet red suits and sunglasses. Their purpose is to make money.

      • DarthBrian


        Yes, you do.

  • DarthBrian

    wow. information overload.

    definitely picking up the Y version now. Flying/Dark sounds awesome.

    Can’t wait to find out how Pancham evolves – I really want Goronda!

    Going with Chespin and Froakie as starters.

    • OverlordZetta

      Getting both?

      • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

        Yes, I will.

  • McPoo

    Looks alright, it’s been tainted by that fanmade alpha Pokemon though. Why can’t Nintendo do a decent Pokemon spin off for once >.<

    • DinoTurtle

      X and Y are main series games, they’re not spin offs of anything.

      • McPoo

        No, I know. That’s my fault for poor phrasing.

  • Adol Christin

    Not the biggest Pokemon fan, but this sounds nice :)

  • fyi1191

    I’m going with Poke Y thanks to that Legendary’s type.

  • OverlordZetta

    Interesting stuff! Not sure I’m digging these types for the legendaries, but the new Pokemon are all looking pretty cool. Really like the squid and I’m glad X is getting Clauncher, really wanted that one.

  • Learii

    I want to see more exclusive pokemon before the game come out please

  • Aldridge517

    Why does the panda evolution look like a delinquent from a japanese high school? :/

  • Gilgamesh2025

    Xerneas! ❤

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    Wow I like what I see!! Love the design for Karamanero and Maika! Really like Team Flare’s costumes too. Also, love the fact they just want to “make money”. I was getting tired of the pseudo-religious motivations of the last few teams. Everything is looking awesome, really pumped for these games to be released!

  • Isombra

    The professor gives a “Charmander, Squirtle or Bulbasaur”. Please update this.
