Pokémon X and Y New Mega Forms and Legendaries Uncovered Thanks to Hacker

Pokémon newly found

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 backpacker

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.

    Jess you spoil everything about hack pokemon. The whole world wants to know about future events and mega evolutions so if you don’t like, stop commenting

    There never will be any Mega Pikachu. But there can be Mega R

    I think the mystery region is Sinjoh, ( remember the Sinjoh ruins from pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver.)

    From the looks of it the legendary Pokemon diancie will be found in the bottom floor of reflecting cave, where you see the entrance in the mirror. I’m usually right with these things.

    The backpacker could be talking about Orre

    There are 2 types of hacking that are being referenced in the comments. The first, what Jess thinking of, is a form of prefab cheat codes. These are your Action Replays or Gamesharks. Anyone can buy the program for executing these hacks and click a single icon to get God Mode or Infinite Master Balls or whatever. This is child’s play hacking.

    Smealum, the hacker referred to in this article, is not using this type of hack. He is braking into the program manually and sifting through millions, more likely billions or trillions, of lines of code to find out hidden aspects of the game. The point of his hacking is information discovery, not cheating to catch a shiny Stunfisk, although he could probably do that very easily if he wanted to.

    @ Poke Fan
    Horrible spelling you have there but good point none the less.

  10. Nhel   November 3, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    Um.. Does anyone know where that backpacker guy that gives you the strange souvenir is?

  11. Sherrie   November 3, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    Samantha, Mega Pikachu will most likely not exist, all megas are fully evolved in their evolution lines before that Pokemon can evolve. If Pokemon doesn’t sell out then Mega Pikachu will remain a pipe dream. Personally I hope this is the case, the mascot doesn’t need anymore attention, its not even a good Pokemon and is only liked because Ash owns one. There’s nothing good nor special about Pikachu at all, Ash’s pikachu isnt even a shiny.

  12. Samantha Heller   November 2, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    No word on a Mega Pikachu? I know loads of people are looking forward to it.

    I don’t really mind “cheating and hacking” as much as some people do. Because sure after I beat a game or if I’m really stuck, like to the point of no return. I’d always pop an Action reply card or disc and get the cheats to help me move on.

    If you don’t get stuck at least once in a game and don’t look up the answer,gamefaq it,or cheat on it. I think you’re not human. That’s what humans are right? We aren’t perfect.

    @Poke Fan
    There is yet to be made a 3DS Action Replay so he did not use one meaning he basicly used another means to get into the games data this so methord he used would be a form of back door which would be in everyway Hacking.

    Look it up they got a AR for the 3DS to play the old DS Games with a AR but it will not work for the 3DS + They could patch the 3DS so a AR would not work for it so try to get your facts next time.

    Hackers are everywhere what they do on their free time is their own choice.

    Geez Jess, the hacking you’re thinking of is not what this article is talking about. You’re idea of hacking is a little kids tool to catch pokemon easily. They use a pre made tool. This hacking is brraking into the code to see what makes up the game. They’re not planning on getting pokemon illegally but just helping us know there are new pokemon that will be released somehow through an update or event.

    So quit your whining and if you don’t want to loose that suspense, then don’t read articles that sre potentially full of spoilers like this. This is your responsibility.

    Good news Guardian. At keast there’s new features/pokemon to collect later on.

  15. Jess   November 1, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    why must people hack these games? Cant they just enjoy them, the suspense and allow the game makers to release these things in their own time. Pokemon Bank has been made to help stop people transferring hacked Pokemon. Personally, I think hacking, hacked Pokemon destroy the game.
