Every week that the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl release date in Japan (September 28) closes in, more Pokemon info gets unveiled. This time the 3 starter Pokemon are shown in scans. The 3 starter Pokemon are named: Naetoru (Turtwig), Hikozaru (Chimchar) and Bocchama (Piplup). The 3 starter Pokemon types seem to be: Grass/Ground, Fire/Normal, and Flying/Water.
* These new pictures also show the Electabuzz evolution is named “Elecbul” and the Roselia evolution is named “Roserade“.
* Perappu has a weird attack called “Blabber“. You record a small sentence, and then when Perappu uses Blabber, he repeats the sentence and confuses the enemy.
* Contests now have three parts. The first is the visual part, where you must dress up your Pokemon to be judged. Second part is the dance segment, and third is the standard move appeal.
* Parukia is psychic/dragon types.
* Diaruga is steel/dragon.
