Am I the only one who finds it funny that the first Gen VI Fairy-type was revealed on Valentine's Day last year, and the last Gen VI Fairy-type was revealed on Valentine's Day this year? :3
TPCI has officially revealed Diancie. They also put to rest the mystery of the connection between Diancie and Carbink: Diancie is a mutation that a VERY little amount of Carbink go through. They also confirmed Smealum's Pokédex Entry Diancie has in Y. Diancie is 2'04" and weighs 19.4 lbs.
X Pokédex Entry: A sudden transformation of Carbink, its pink, glimmering body is said to be the loveliest sight in the whole world.
Y Pokédex Entry: It can instantly create many diamonds by compressing the carbon in the air between its hands.
In the picture for Diancie's X Pokédex Entry, they accidently showed Diancie's Shiny form, which also (unsurprisingly) matches the one from the models of the Shiny Kalos Legendaries (With the exception of Yveltal) and the Shiny Mega Eon Duo Smealum posted on Twitter the other day. They quickly took it down and replaced it with a normal Diancie and its Y Pokédex Entry.
We also got some plot details for the new movie, "The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie":
"The Dialand. A beautiful, pristine world, home to many Carbink. It's known that it's underground somewhere, but nobody knows its exact location. And inside the Dialand, there's a gigantic diamond, named the Lifestone. The Lifestone has been the source of energy for the residents of the Dialand for ages. Historically, there's been one sole Pokémon who can create and maintain this giant gem: Dialand's princess, Diancie. However, she’s unable to do her job. And thus, time goes on…
With Diancie unable to maintain the Lifestone, its time draws near…
At this rate, the Dialand will collapse.
Diancie meets Ash and Pikachu, and with their help, search for the Life Pokémon, Xerneas…
In this movie, Diancie's the princess of the Dialand, an underground world home to Pokémon like Carbink. But now, its keystone gem shines no more, leading to Dialand's destruction…
Diancie meets Ash and Pikachu, and with their help, search for the Life Pokémon, Xerneas. But they encounter a cocoon, a shell for the resting Yveltal, who once destroyed the entirety of the Kalos region..."

Alright, so from now on when I post sketches/sprites for the Vermillion and Azure Pokemon, I'll make one topic message for ten Pokemon and make a new one after the previous one gets ten Pokemon (starting with this one).
I got some sketches for Raphin; if you can decide which one you want me to use by eight or nine today, I can make an "official" drawing for it and then make the sprite for it today. Unless you want me to make more sketches, that is.
By the way, for the last sketch, I added the dorsal fin even though it was originally not intended. That sketch works though with or without a dorsal fin, so it's entirely up to you to use it or not.
I finished Raphin's sprite. I didn't include the dorsal fin because the budget was too low...nah, just kidding. I tried making one but all the dorsal fins I made didn't work. If you're good with this sprite, I'll upload it to Fantendo myself.
