The official Pokemon site updated with information on the four new Pokemon revealed in Corocoro. Shishiko's English name is Litleo, Furabebe is now Flabébé, Scatterbug is the base form of Vivillon while Spewpa is confirmed to be the middle evolution.
Under the Characters and Story tabs, the official site also confirms the English names of the humans revealed in Corocoro. The hefty guy with the Vanillite shirt is Tierno, the redheaded little boy is Trevor and the spastic girl is Shauna. Despite official screenshots referring to the protagonists as Xavier and Yvonne, it seems that the character whom you don't pick is called Callum or Serena, as in Japanese, with your hometown being Vaniville Town. Gym Leader Viola retains her Japanese name, although she is now the Santalune City Gym Leader and a professional Pokemon photographer; her older sister, Alexa, is the character known as Pansy who has a Gogoat.
Other tidbits on the official site: Scatterbug is 1', 5.5 lbs, learns String Shot (surprise!) and can survive in any climate; Spewpa is 1', 18.5 lbs and learns Protect; Flabebe, 4" and 0.2 lbs, draws power from its flowers when using its attacks and Litleo, who is 2' and 29.8 lbs, has the new move War Cry, known as Noble Roar in English, which lowers the target's Attack and Special Attack.
