The elite hacker known as Smealum has broken into the code of Pokémon X and Y to uncover legendary Pokémon #719-721. Along with that, new mega forms have also been found. Such mega forms exist for Latias and Latios. These discoveries have not been confirmed considering that the knowledge come from someone breaking into the code of the game. The legendaries are said to be event Pokémon, meaning that at some point there will be a downloadable event in which Nintendo gives these Pokémon out, these legendaries cannot be caught in game (without hacking). Although it is possible these legendaries are not actual legendaries, nothing is confirmed yet.
The names and numbers of these newly uncovered Pokemon start with #719, Diancie, #720 is Volcanion, and finally #721 is named Hoopa. These are once again unconfirmed but pictures have emerged. Allow me to explain how this is possible. The hacker makes these Pokémon possible to encounter in the wild and then meets them in battle, which is where the pictures came from.
These newly found pictures could be the answers to other previously unanswered question, for it seems the Kalos region has a number of secrets. One interesting point is the locked power plant doors. During the main story line your player must enter the power plant to return power to Lumiose City. The odd part is that there are three other doors to facilities that remain locked. Even after beating the game these doors remain locked and unable to open. It is currently unknown what is needed to get into these rooms. Could they perhaps be connected to the three possible legendaries just found?
As for the newly found mega forms of Latias and Latios it brings into question if other mega forms exist and haven’t been found. It also brings up the question of how to receive the mega stones required for Latias and Latios, that question also remains unanswered. It is possible that Nintendo could release an event with the Pokémon holding the necessary mega stones or they could perhaps find another way to distribute the necessary stones to players.
Pokémon X and Y are still new so it is to be expected that not all the answers have been discovered yet. Those really paying attention have found more questions, one of which being about the item known as Strange Souvenir. In most towns you can find a hotel, the upper floors usually have a gentleman in pink that will give you o-powers but it is also possible to find someone else, a backpacker. This backpacker mentions his home region but the odd thing is the way he describes it. “Where is it, you ask? Well, I can tell you it’s not Kanto Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, or even Unova!” Basically, he just said that he comes from a region that hasn’t been explored in past Pokémon games. Could he be talking about the next game? Maybe he is talking about Downloadable content. After talking to him enough he gives you the item Strange Souvenir. The description reads, “An ornament depicting a Pokémon that is venerated as a protector in some region far from Kalos.”
Pokemon X and Y are closer to being understood now but even with these possibly new legendaries and mega forms there is more to be answered. Can hackers uncover more within the code of the game that will shed some light on these mysterious questions or will gamers have to simply wait for Nintendo to give answers. Much still remains hidden within the Kalos region it seems.
