Another scrumptious episode of Bulbacast has been uploaded to YouTube. Watch it here. I hope you don't feel desserted after watching this one.
The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier.
Please have a read over the new forum rules here.

Re: English names of four Pokémon and NPCs revealed: Fourth X and Y gameplay trailer
I'm glad they kept Viola's name. It's kinda unusual and fairly uncommon. The last character (or even person) I've heard named that was Viola from "Zoids Chaotic Century", and the name has a nice ring to it. Also seems to fit her nicely, so I like it.
Flabebe is bit of a first. I'm not sure we've had any Pokemon previous that had an accent in their name, let alone two. Dash maybe, like Ho-Oh, and Farfetch'd sorta comes to mind, but I think the last accent I've seen in the Pokemon franchise might be the actual name itself: Pokemon. I could be wrong, as I haven't tapped into Pokemon lately, but I'm a bit too lazy to check.
Littleo sounds very cute, and quite fitting, while Scatterbug sounds rather funny. Reminds me of the term "scatterbrained", which would be funny if it was exactly that. Spewpa is a little odd, but I don't dislike it, just sounds a little strange.
The new names for the friends sound pretty good. And it's an usual combo to see a larger guy who is quite light on his feet and wants to have a dancing Pokemon team. But, hey, makes for interesting characters, so I'm not complaining. Although I do get a vibe of Battle Network from these guys, as they do remind me a bit of Lan's posse. Probably because I've been re-playing Battle Network lately, but they do give me a feel of Dex, Maylu, Yai, and possibly Chaud, but that might be just me.
Overall, nicely done and very thought-out. I'm getting more and more impressed with this gen each day.
