Pokemon Hybrids Possible in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y?

#1 Posted by metroids1fan (6 posts) -

     With the announcement of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, we can tell that there are going to be a lot of changes to the game series that we all know and love. The strange new titles are far different from all other games in the series, which have all been named after a color or gemstone. This got me thinking what does X and Y mean? From the trailer, we know that there are two legendary Pokemon (most likely exclusive to each game) that resembles these letters and oddly enough have been named with those letters (Xerneas and Yveltal). We also know that x and y are used on a coordinate system for 2 dimensional graphing, so perhaps Gamefreak will make a statement with a third game Pokemon Z, by saying that this is the first Pokemon game to be released in 100% full 3D and x,y, and z make up a three dimensional graph naming them after their axies. 

     But I think that there is more to this than what the pokemon look like. X and Y are also used to name chromosomes (XY for males and XX for females). With every new game the breeding mechanics change and it wouldn't be crazy to think that maybe X and Y will introduce Hybrid or cross breeding pokemon. How cool would it be to have a Magmar/Electabuzz fusion pokemon that was both a fire and electric type? There is no doubt that there will be restrictions on which pokemon can "mingle" because of course with over 600 pokemon, the possible combinations would be endless. 

    What are your thoughts? Good? Bad? Impossible? I guess we'll just have to wait and see what October brings us.

The fusion idea is awesome, but this is pokemon not Yu gi or Digimon, so I think it is impossible. then when I was about to submit my post, I remembered Zekrom/ Reshiram fuse with Kyurem. and now I have no idea hahah.

Yes it's possible but it isn't in the nature of pokémon to fuse pokémon together in a sense that would look unnatural, it made sense with magnemite to magneton but when you start mixing the game names with what you're implying it comes off rather unlike pokémon to make happen, I cannot imagine sugimori spending time to create a fusion between magmar and electabuzz, it just would be unnatural for the image that pokémon adopts. A good suggestion though and a nice thread to kick things off. :)

It would be boring, but if they have the stats of one Pokemon that switches with another. Like a level 5 tepig with a level 100 lugia

Yeah then it would be like Dragon Warrior Monsters, Pokemons only true rival...Interesting idea, sir.

Hm...interesting...maybe in like 2 generations. If they do it, they need to do it good, I am sure people would hate it if they just started pumping random mechanics like Yu-Gi-Oh did with those Number monsters...or...or like...BAKUGAN (DUN DUN DUN)
