Information on Diancie, Hoopa, and Volcanion
The following is some information about X and Y that we’ve known for a while, specifically pertaining to its hidden Legendary Pokemon. We were asked to hold off posting what you see below until today’s date, so enjoy!
- Diancie is Rock/Fairy, 2’04”, 19.4 lbs. #151. It is known as the Jewel Pokemon. “It can instantly create many diamonds by compressing the carbon in the air between its hands.”
- Diancie’s signature move is Diamond Storm, a physical Rock-type attack. A bunch of diamonds are created and thrown at the enemy. “The user whips up a storm of diamonds to damage opposing Pokemon. This may also raise the user’s Defense stat.” It has 100 power and 95% accuracy. Diancie can also learn Moonblast, Safeguard, and Light Screen.
- Diancie is not related to Carbink on its Pokedex evolution page. However it could be a Manaphy/Phione situation. Or maybe the diamonds it throws turn into Carbink after a couple million years? :p
- At Level 100 with no EV training, Diancie’s stats can be 222/236/300/236/344/135.
- Hoopa is Psychic/Ghost, 1’08”, 19.8 lbs. #152. It is known as the Mischief Pokemon. “It gathers things it likes and pushes them through its loop to teleport them to a secret place.”
- Hoopa’s signature move is Hyperspace Hole, a special Psychic-type attack. A dark hole is created in the ground, Hoopa goes through it, then comes out behind the enemy and hits them. “Using a hyperspace hole, the user appears next to the target and strikes. This also hits a target using Protect or Detect.” It’s got 80 power and N/A accuracy. Hoopa can also learn Psychic, Shadow Ball, and Trick Room

- There are no other Mega Evolutions in the game aside from Mega Latios and Mega Latias, which look the same. They both retain their original Dragon/Psychic typing.
- Celebi remains Psychic/Grass.
- The extra meteor for Deoxys at the Fossil Lab is a Red Herring. It’s just another attack forme meteor.
