The new monsters will all feature in the upcoming Pokemon XY & Z anime, with the first revealed to be a new colour variation of Greninja that looks similar to Ash’s clothing.

Far more interesting, however, is the new detail on the third legendary from Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, Zygarde. He has five different forms, including a blob, a cell, a dog, the snake-like creature we’re already familiar with and a new Mega Evolution. These versions are called Core, Cell, 10%, 50% and Perfect Formes, respectively.


Seeing as we’re still awaiting the announcement of a new main Pokemon title for 2016, it’s seeming increasingly obvious that it’s likely to be Pokemon Z and revolve around Zygarde. We’ve reached out to Nintendo for comment and will update when we hear more.

In the meantime, there’s been quite a few other Pokemon games announced this year, including the news Pokken Tournament is coming to Wii U and the news of Pokemon Go, an iOS and Android game that sends you out into the real-world to capture Pokemon hidden all around you.
