Other details revealed in the scans:

New Pokemon professor! Meet Prof Araragi:

Quite refreshing to see a woman professor finally, right?

The new Pokedex is also revealed:

At this point most of us are just interested in how the Pokedex functions in the game, so although this art is cool, we're eager to see more details on the in-game Pokedex. 

And lastly, two new Wi-Fi features are teased in the issue. The first is called Random Match, which sets up battles against random players via Wi-Fi (there will be Global Terminals in Poke Centers now, and you can access Wi-Fi features like Random Match there). The second is something called C Gear, which is still a mystery - all we know is that it's some kind of Wi-Fi feature. The issue also says that you'll be able to upload your save data from the game to the internet, but for what purpose we're still unsure.

UPDATE: More scans leaked! Click to enlarge.

    I think out of all of those my favourite is Shimama or Mamepato, but then I've got a soft spot for electric types, and that pigeon is just damn cute. I love the Professor as well, and I think Professor Willow could well be her name. Willow's actually a female name, after all. But also, she might not even have a tree name, Professor Ivy didn't after all. Although as far as I can remember she didn't feature in the games. Hihidaruma, in my opinion, looks like it's already evolved from something. No idea why, it just does. To me, it looks as though the developers have been doing a damn good job churning out so many new pokemon as often as they do. After all they need to find new things that appeal to everyone, not just the little girls and boys, but the people like me who still remembers getting Blue for their birthday when it was first released here in England and have all of the RPG games and plan on buying any more that come out, depite the fact that I, for one, just turned 18. (Also, you guys at Pokemon Mondays have my dream job. xD) ReCaptcha: wheedles that. (Lul, wheedles, Pokemon humour.)

    1st Gen: AWESOME!!! 2nd Gen: STILL AWESOME!!! 3rd Gen: Pretty Good! 4th Gen: ...Oh well... seriously? 5th Gen: What the hell I have every single one of these around my house... The gamer generation is falling and failing, and it is doing so really fast.

    I believe I've seen this two days ago on, but I don't mind. The pigeon's ability is actually Pigeon HEART, not BREAST. Love the new types mentioned, such as Fire/Dragon, Electric/Dragon, and Ground/Dark. I'm sure as hell getting Pokemon White now. To those who are saying that they've run out of ideas, I'd love to see what YOU'D come up with (yeah right! Not really).

    Damn Japs always getting stuff before us!
  • Conman93 - June 12, 2010 1:08 a.m.

    Wow, the legendaries represent yin and yang. Thats pretty deep, although I don't see how they'll make a story around that.. Didn't expect the white one to be fire at all!

    It's great to see these scans. I just don't know what I'm supposed to think about this MamePato. Aren't they enough pidgeon like pokemon(pidgey,pideotto,Pidgeot,etc)around. How about some flying predator type looking pokemon(eagle,condor,falcon). Or maybe I missed them. Haven't played a pokemon since Emerald. I'm sure this will sell well. reCAPTCHA: 'cash rode'
  • shyfonzie - June 11, 2010 10:53 p.m.

    SOMEBODY TELL MIKEL THERE'S A CHINCHILLA POKEMON! I think they look pretty cool. And there's a female proffesor! Also, the pokedex looks like an iPhone.
  • slimjim441 - June 11, 2010 10:45 p.m.

    This game looks more and more depressing as time rolls on. ALL of those Pokemon (it shames me to call them that) look ridiculous and childish, even 'Hhidaruma.' And a female Pokemon Prof? I don't think so. I see that they still have Pokemon that can only be obtained via special events (or via Pokemon obtained via special event), leaving almost every American unable to complete a Pokedex without an Action Replay. The Podedex looks pretty interesting, however, I'm not going to buy the game for an interesting looking Pokedex. Keep in mind, I'm not a Pokemon hater. I love the games through Gold & Silver. Ruby, etc. weren't bad, and Diamond, etc. were at least worth playing (until HG&SS, then not so much). I'm just very disappointed in the new Pokemon style and extreme lack of ingenuity.
  • Jalygtra - June 11, 2010 9:35 p.m.

    All I see is phanphy, magnemite, chimchar, ponytar, staryo that has been blown up to 3d ish balloons and recoloured. Nintendo needs to do better to impress me, seems like their just milking the franchise to me....
  • Conman93 - June 11, 2010 9:24 p.m.

    Fire, monkey thing looks pretty cool. That flying one is obviously the pidgey and starly of the game.
  • theemporer - June 11, 2010 9:13 p.m.

    I think the proffesor stole the youth from the trainers... ReCaptcha: bookeeper quartet...
  • Tygerclaws - June 11, 2010 9:01 p.m.

    I WILL have that Electric horse. Period. Ponyta is one of my all-time favourites, so anything that's reminiscent of it piques my interest instantly. I want it.
