Normally I don't post rumours such as this, but these two pictures seen on the right have been posted in the Japanese image boards and they seem to be believing it also.

First, the pre-evolution Pokémon is called Zorua/ Zoroa (ゾロア) and is a Dark-type Pokémon. Its classification is Evil Fox Pokémon, it is 0.7m tall and 12.5kg
Secondly, the Pokémon in the sihlouette is said to be called Zoroark/Zoroaaku (ゾロアーク)and is also a Dark-type Pokémon. Its classification is Monster Fox Pokémon, it is 1.6m tall and 81.1kg
Remember, this is possible to be a fake, albeit a very convincing one but fakes are becoming that good as of late, and it is a bit early for leaks, so don't take it as fact yet. We'll bring more on this as and when it comes so be sure to check back

Pokémon HeartGold & SoulSilver - Pokéathlon Event Names

Continuing with the big week of reveals, I am happy to reveal to you nine of the Pokéathlon event names in US. Like before, it's possible they will change prior to the release but isn't likely, and we aren't 100% on a couple, but they're more than likely the real names. Most of these names are similar to the Japanese names but there are a couple of complete changes.

Serebii.net ItemDex

This project has been something that people have been asking me to do for years. I have created a comprehensive ItemDex that details the effects, locations, any Pokémon that hold it and everything about each of the items from each Pokémon game since Red & Green up to and including HeartGold & SoulSilver. I have also essentially merged the BerryDex into this ItemDex. It's still got things that can be added, but I'm going live with it now as it is essentially complete. If you have found an item in a location not listed here, feel free to send an e-mail. It has numerous means of navigation so it should be easy to find the Item you desire.
