Pokemon X and Y - Generation 6

Recommended Posts

So I tuned into the Nintendo Direct stream at 11am (gmt) as there was an announcement that was pokemon related and presented by Satoru Iwata :)
Turns out they have been in the process of a whole new pair of games, Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, for the 3DS that will be released worldwide in October 2013 (which is a big change as Japan usually gets the games months before the rest of the world).

Here's the recorded stream.
Skip to 7:28 for the video of the new games :)

What are your thoughts on them? I know I'll be buying one or the other as I'm a sucker for Pokemon.
I wasn't keen on Black and White and the second editions of them, but this looks like it'll be a good game :)

There's been rumours of this for ages, along with them remaking some of the older game boy ones...

Yep, and now we finally have the truth :P
I do want the remakes too. I couldn't get enough of Yellow.

Also I loved playing Blue and Squirtle Rules!

What?! I have blue, sapphire, pearl, heart gold, and black. Didn't get black or white 2, but will probably get these next Christmas :P
(O and I didn't play blue when that came out, I wasn't alive yet lol)

I started with Red too. Crystal was definitely my favortie of them all though. I'm probably not going to get this new one. Might find a soulsilver game though. This has sparked an interest in Pokemon again for me.

I feel bad about awakening this topic from the dead, but didn't feel another topic would help. So the update is going here :P

Since the first reveal we've had a few more Pokemon announced such as Mewtwo's supposedly 'Awakened' form and Sylveon, Evee's new evolution.

The other Pokemon revealed are Helioptile, Fletchling (The bird), Pancham (Panda) and Gogoat (the Goat thing, that reminds me of the 3 Legendary dogs) :P

We've also seen mounting Gogoat in one of the cities and sitting on benches! (As well as two scenes :) )

I'm not ashamed to say that I'm really getting excited about this game. I will be preordering 'X' soon :D
Now, what do you guys think about it now we know a bit more about the game? As it says in the videos, its not final footage but it's looking very promising.

 

Also, this was a youtube comment:
'Xerneas and Yveltal are based on the Norse mythology guardians of the Yggdrasil Tree, which is: a bird-like creature that protects the top of the tree, this may be Yveltal, a deer-like creature that protects the soil and trunk of the tree, this may be Xerneas, and a snake-like creature that protects the underworld below the tree. If this is right then there might be a snake-like legendary Pokémon to go with Xerneas and Yveltal. A snake-like creature would go perfect with Z...'

So more was revealed at E3 yesterday. This included more game footage, a new 'fairy' type and a few new pokemon named Noivern, Vivillon, Clauncher, Skrelp and Talonflame.

Other things include the addition of 'hoard' battles and sky battles!

Holy smokes! I don't think I've ever seen so many new ideas put into a game at once, yet almost all of them look like a nice breath of fresh air! This is good though, it kinda felt like the series needed something new other than more pokemon. I'll almost certainly make sure that this is added to my 3DS game set when the time comes.  :)

Bad me! Bringing up old topics again *slaps own hand*

 

More info that, to be honest, I'm very excited about :D

Mega Pokemon!

Now here's an explanation on how the Mega Pokemon work.

These Mega Evolutions/forms only occur in battle, when a Mega-capable Pokemon is holding a specific Mega Stone. For instance, in order to evolve Lucario into Mega Lucario, he'll have to be holding a chunk of Lucarionite. Blaziken, Blazikenite and so on. Once the Mega Pokemon are done fighting, they'll revert back to their normal form.

Sounds cool in theory, but in competitive battling and battling websites such as pokemonshowdown these mega forms would most likely have to be banned.  :(

p.s. If anything needs a mega evolution, it's dunsparce!!!!!!

Apparently, only one pokemon can mega evolve in a battle and the stones aren't aquired during normal gameplay so that seems to balance it out a bit. Although, we don't know full details on the whole thing :)
