Pokémon X and Pokémon Y: Jynx Evolution Revealed (Rumor)

Could Jynx (ルージュラ) get a new evolution (Rujeria ルジェリア) in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y?

Rumor has it that the dual-type Ice/ Psychic Pokémon Jynx (ルージュラ Rougela) is getting a new evolution in the upcoming Generation VI (6) Pokémon titles for the Nintendo 3DS. Apparently, Jynx will evolve into Rujeria, or ルジェリアin Japanese. Currently, Jynx evolves from Smoochum starting at Level 30.

There's been talk for a while now that Jynx could be introduced to a new evolution in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Sources, quite reputable ones at that, have recently posted an image and it has received a massive amount of activity; both in discussion and media sharing.

Here's what we know from the below picture:

Posted Image

Japanese Name: ルジェリア
Romanized Name: Rujeria
English Name: Unknown
Spanish Name: Unknown
French name: Unknown
Italian Name: Unknown
German: Unknown

Type: Ice/ Psychic
Height: 1.7m
Weight: 48.5kg

In the image, it's plain to see that there's a new evolution and even appears to show Rujeria participating in a battle with Fennekin and Chespin. There's another image as well, but it's too blurry to make out. More details will be revealed as we receive them. Until then, take this with a grain of salt, but know that we typically don't post rumors unless there's a good deal of accuracy associated with it.

We've updated our Pokémon X and Pokémon Y page with this information.

I have wanted an evolution for Jynx ever since Magmar and Electabuzz were given one. I mean I always thought of these three Pokemon as a trio. They were all given a pre-evolution but only two were given an evolution!? What kind of horse dung is that? I really hope this rumor is real!

Oh btw does anyone remember that Jynx was originally black and not purple? I do. That cause one heck of a controversy so they changed its color to the purple we all came to know and love. :)
I myself never heard much of it, or been a big fan for this pkmn
: P I never looked at it's stats are movesets, so I never knew how good it could be with a strategy. But this is interesting.
Cool, I am into ice type so if the rumors are true then the new evolution would be a nice addition to my team.
I'm sorry to inform everyone, but this rumor has been busted. :(

The Japanese is slightly off, turning this rumor into a road rash. That probably didn't make sense but it's too early in the morning to try and explain that. It's a fake, folks.
That sucks that this was a rumor, I saw the photo on tumblr and got excited that Jynx was getting an Evo. I wish some more news would be released for X and Y soon, I feel like it's been forever since we learned about Sylveon. (And still don't know it's typing.)
Awh man, that makes me sad. This one looks so good! I've been waiting for a Jynx evolution since Syther, Electabuzz, and Magmar all got theirs. Pinsir needs one too.
Yea I also got excited!
