The Legendary Pokemon Zapdos

If you chose Fennekin as your Starter Pokemon, Zapdos will begin roaming the Kalos Region after defeating the Elite Four. You can track it using your Pokedex. Unlike other games with roaming Pokemon, you will not be able to attack Zapdos when in battle; it will flee before you can select a move. After finding it and it fleeing a couple times, Zapdos will settle in Sea Spirit's Den where it can finally be battled.

Shiny Charm

Using the Shiny Charm will increase your odds of finding Shiny Pokemon. Using this item in the wild will make your chances of finding Shiny Pokemon go from 1 in 4,096 to 1,365.3 which means it makes it approximately three times more likely. To get the Shiny Charm complete the National Pokedex and then visit Professor Sycamore.

Pokemon With Updated Stats: Nidoqueen

Many Pokemon in Pokemon X and Y have had their Stats updated. Nidoqueen is one of these Pokemon. Nidoqueen's Base Attack Stat has increased 10 Points, from 82 to 92. This was probably the best base stat increase Nidoqueen could have received, since all of it's stats are mediocre.

Pokemon With Updated Stats: Alakazam

Many Pokemon in Pokemon X and Y have had their Stats updated. Alakazam is one of these Pokemon. Alakazam's Base Special Defense Stat has increased 10 Points, from 85 to 95.
