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, soalthough 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 firstis 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.
