Pokemon X and Y has been out for long enough that you might have finished the main campaign, but don't think that's the end of X and Y. Beyond our Pokemon X and Y reviewcomplete Pokedex, and guides to Mega Stone locations and Pokemon-amie, one canny hacker has found some secret Pokemon within the X/Y code. Are there three secret Pokemon that Nintendo is waiting to reveal to the world? Find out in the video below and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel so you don't miss another episode.

Pokemon X and Y Weekly is GamesRadar's weekly Pokemon X and Y show. The title was a pretty obvious hint. Come back every Tuesday for the latest news, analysis, and speculation about the next generation of Pocket Monsters. You can also check out our Pokemon X and Y review.

    Volcanions kinda cool
  • g1rldraco7 - November 6, 2013 7:35 a.m.

    DLC Pokemon for sure. I doubt Volcanion is a ire and steel water type sine it can be killed by one water attack. Although the designs are pretty neat, I hope their types aren't rushed or done wrong.
  • codystovall - November 6, 2013 6:30 a.m.

    Volcanion looks kinda cool but all three look kinda crappy design wise. Imo
  • J-Fid - November 6, 2013 6:18 a.m.

    Pretty sure it's all legit.
  • SpadesSlick - November 6, 2013 4:36 a.m.

    Diancie is easily the best IMO, followed by Hoopa. Volcanion looks like shit honestly. Also i'm pretty sure Hoopa is supposed to be more like a genie than a gypsy.
  • JarkayColt - November 6, 2013 4:23 a.m.

    Is this even up for debate? They're 100% real, at least the names are. Why? Because you can enter Hoopa, Volcanion and Diancie on the GTS and it will acknowledge it as an actual Pokémon. The game doesn't let you ask or search for a name that doesn't exist (which means you have to be wary of spelling, for example I mistyped Deerling as "Deeling" and the game was like, the hell is that?) So yeah, the names are legit. I actually saw a tonne o people asking for "Volcanion" before I even knew what it was. Whether or not someone found the names and then made up their appaerances as a hoax, I dunno, but I think the fact that they also managed to find Arceus and Mew is supposed to prove the validity of the footage. ...I just hope there are still more Mega Evolutions lurking about in there...
  • JarkayColt - November 6, 2013 4:55 a.m.

    Wait, where has that Sugimori style artwork come from? Y'know, the three pictures of them in the default image for the video? That's got to be unofficial fanart, right? Because the only artwork we have for most of the XY Pokémon are the PGL vectors. Just thought I'd mention that. Also, the Floette that is shown, it's the one that belongs to AZ isn't it? But it never appears in battle during the game. So, maybe they plan to do an event in the future where you can recieve AZ's Floette, or at least battle him again, with it in his party. It would be like the event battle against Giovanni in HGSS.
  • C.King - November 6, 2013 6:41 a.m.

    his Floette kinda creeped me out with how the little flower of hers looked like the death ray. i could think it'd have the mascot legendary signature moves, geomancy and oblivion wing but be like spiky eared pichu and not evolve. also is there only 1 shiny florges or like 5?
  • JarkayColt - November 6, 2013 7:20 a.m.

    I think that was probably the point. AZ built it to look like his Floette, I guess, or rather the flower that one holds. Especially considering he used it to give them both eternal life first, before he chose to use it as a weapon. If it had the two signature moves, that would be really cool and make a lot of sense (it would be like the Victini and...I think it was Darkrai, that had both of the version legends' signature moves in an event.) Also I'm pretty sure all 5 Flabébé/Floette/Florges have a Shiny form for each flower, a bit like how Rotom has a Shiny form for each appliance. But it would be interesting to see if a Florges with the colouration like AZ's Floette is also in the game data; if it's not then the Spiky Eared Pichu point is probably right. But it's also possible that this Floette only exists because its model was used in the final cutscene where AZ is reunited with it (IIRC), and therefore they had to fully program it in to avoid hackers bugging the game out if they tried to use it, and also so that the game had an asset to source from. A bit like how there was an ???-type Arceus in gen 4. Just covering bases.

    i was glad when i 1st heard of these guys 69 pokemon not including the megas too little to me. i wonder if any pokemon gained a evolution and no one triggered it yet. quick lvl farfetch to lvl 100 while a hawlucha in the party! wouldn't mega lati@s(anyone notice the mega symbol not there? so maybe it like regigigas or kyurem? ) be a nerfed? the soul dew gives a crazy 50% boost to both their special stats already, though this sorta means you can be evil and have both in your party
  • JarkayColt - November 6, 2013 4:40 a.m.

    I wanted to be the first person who discovered the new Evolution for Dunsparce...then I cried a bit. And I noticed that as well, but maybe the lack of a Mega symbol is a side effect of it being forcefully hacked to appear. Otherwise, I agree that it does feel a bit like Kyurem...but in the sense that they both look identical, as though both Latios and Latias have fused into one body (which is also suggested by the purple colouration; blue + red = purple.) How on earth that would work, I have no idea. But if one of the Lati twins is "absorbed" in the same way that Reshiram/Zekrom is, then that stops you from having one of each. It might be activated by an item like the DNA Splicers which can only be used to fuse one Kyurem at a time. Also, Soul Dew is always banned anyway, even in in-game battles (at least, it is if you check the item restrictions for the Maison). So it can't really a be "nerf" if that item is never allowed.
  • C.King - November 6, 2013 6:33 a.m.

    well mega stones are pretty crazy and legendaries in free battles now so i got no clue if the ban still gonna be inplace. when i said both in one party meant like the fused lati@s and a spare/3rd lati@s holding the soul dew. or does the fused already count as both? wait what if the soul dew is now a mega stone?but for either of em
  • JarkayColt - November 6, 2013 7:03 a.m.

    Seeings as these Pokémon appear to keep the name "Latios" or "Latias" then I'm assuming it counts as that species. By which I mean, I suppose you could have the weird purple Latios and a regular Latias for example. It is also entirely possible that these are just some sort of test or beta-leftover Pokémon though, that aren't intended to be included in the full game, and therefore the Mega mechanic wasn't completely implemented. It's not unheard of for stuff like that to happen. But you may also be right about the Soul Dew having that expanded purpose; the Soul Dew is said to contain the soul of a Latios or Latias, so the Pokémon may be combining with the soul it contains. It's currently unknown how to obtain the Soul Dew in the maybe they'll give it out in an event held by Latios or Latias, like the Torchic with Blazikenite.
  • Doctalen - November 5, 2013 9:54 p.m.

    I've heard rumors that Volcanion will be fire/water and heard that at the moment, there were two unreleased mega stones. I can't tell from the screentshot y'all have if its only mega-Latios/Latias or the same one twice. That said, stop giving megas to legendaries they dont need it! Give a mega stone to an overlooked pokemon like the other starters or eeevee. Mega eevee would be hilarious
  • BladedFalcon - November 5, 2013 8:01 p.m.

    Not really a fan of these new pokemon, if I'm being honest. So I wouldn't be upset if they turned out to be fake, although they do look fairly legit still.
  • SunniDee - November 5, 2013 7:59 p.m.

    Game Freak is on record saying there will be no Pokemon XY DLC. On an unrelated you think Pokemon Z will come out next year? As the third game has always comes out a year after the third
  • robotic-fiend - November 5, 2013 5:41 p.m.

    How can they not be real, the information was obtained from the game legitimate or not. Also this wasn't a "Leak" as you say, using Buzz Words to generate traffic is above you guys, Bad form GR. And you never mentioned Mega Latias and Latios, or the new Vivillon patterns even though you showed them.
  • Shigeruken - November 5, 2013 6:23 p.m.

    There have been convincing fake Pokemon leaked in similar ways in the past (random encounter with a sprite someone simply made), so until more people are able to confirm their legitimacy. I think the odds of them being real are pretty high, and I'm excited by the possibility of there being more mega evolutions we haven't seen yet. I want a mega Dragonite.
  • BladedFalcon - November 5, 2013 7:45 p.m.

    Gen V pokemon need mega-evolutions too. Mega Chandelure? FUCK YES.
  • Shigeruken - November 7, 2013 3:58 a.m.

    That would certainly hurt my mega scizor :D
