Pokemon X and Y Volcanion could make Blastoise redundant

It looks like every Pokemon fan is really excited about the mystery locations of Volcanion, Diancie and Hoopa in Pokemon X and Y. Earlier this week we showed you images of the three leaked creatures, but now we have another one to show you of Volcanion, the heavily rumored new Fire / Water type that could become the new fan favorite.

So far, Nintendo and Game Freak are keeping silent on the big rumors that are going around, but it does look like all three new Pokemon are legit and it does look like they will be tied to some sort of upcoming event in due course.

As we await details on where to locate these elusive beasts, we have a feeling that most of you may already be looking at Volcanion as your new favorite Pokemon. Its intimidating design has been the subject of talk over the weekend on message boards – notably due to the unusual ring-like features on his back.

Well now, we have another image to show you, which gives you a look at Volcanion using these rings in full force, unleashing what looks to be a massive attack that could be unique to only Volcanion. If you thought mega Blastoise was uninspiring with its water-based moves, just take a look at this attack which could be a combination of water and fire in one move.

Who will honestly want to opt for Blastoise as their main choice, if Volcanion can blow Blastoise out of the water (excuse the pun) with stunning attacks like the one seen here? Let’s hope that we see some Pokemon X and Y Volcanion gameplay footage soon to get a better idea.

Do you agree that Blastoise will be made redundant if Volcanion lives up to the early hype? Give us your thoughts on what that attack seen above could be.

someone hacked in as, like, the only pokémon available in salatune forest or something…


I don’t believe Volcanion or Hoopa are legit. Diance’s already been approved right. But to me if you look at the second pic with volcanion his level is too low. It more than likely that this was shopped in some way. But if it is legit it’s probably a legendary, like Diance. Also aa for the megas in my opinion mega Agron,Tyranitar and mawile are the hardest. (after the mega mewtwos.) I do see the others often and I’ve beaten every single one with ease. But the three listed above are the ones I’ve had the most trouble with. But… Read more »


what about delphox




Volcanion would buss up blastoise for one it does outshine with moves like mega blastoise has 3 cannons and dosent use any and just uses its mouth where as volcanion uses its pipe thing so he is legit and awesome.Also think about it his signature move fire and water combines mind blown and its only weak to ground rock and electric


Volcanion may be able to outshine Blastoise in its specialty, but they each will have their own niche. (Mega) Blastoise has decent defensive capabilities, and rapid spin. However, it has a pretty predictable movepool, and plus its ability kind of sucks. There are also so many other better mega evos to take the slot like Mega Aggron and the deadly three. Volcanion probably won’t have the bulk that mega Blastoise has, but i’m assuming that he will have a something near base 130 SP. attack. Volcanion looks like very slow based on its stocky appearance and probably won’t be outspeeding… Read more »
