According to Serebii.net if you speak to any given backpacker in one of the hotels across Kalos once a day for 4 days in a row, he will give you the Strange Souviner above. An Easter Island head Pokémon, huh? Does this mean Gen 7 is already confirmed? I thought Nosepass and Probopass served that purpose already. Will the next region be based on or near South America?
