Bulbanews has multiple articles related to this subject:

Pokémon X (Japanese: ポケットモンスターX Pocket Monsters X) and Pokémon Y (Japanese: ポケットモンスターY Pocket Monsters Y) are the primary paired versions of the upcoming Generation VI. The games will be available on the Nintendo 3DS.

Both games were revealed during a worldwide announcement by Satoru Iwata through Nintendo Direct at 8 pm JST, on January 8, 2013. The paired versions will be released worldwide (except for select countries) on October 2013 and will be available for both retail sale and download.


Full 3D gameplay

Unlike any other games in the main series, Pokémon X and Y feature a completely three dimensional style of gameplay, and 3D modeled characters and creatures are used, rather than sprites like has been done since Generation I. The battle system is aesthetically overhauled, featuring more lively reactions to the attacks, such as when a Pokémon is being hit.


The player now has the ability to rollerskate, at least under certain conditions. Gogoat can be ridden.


X and Y will feature Gyms like every other main series title. A Gym seen in the Nintendo Direct trailer features the female protagonist standing on a floating platform that transforms into a room.

New Pokémon

See Category:Generation VI Pokémon

Currently, 72 new Pokémon are confirmed for X and Y. How many total new Pokémon will be released is unknown at this point.

The first Pokémon to be revealed were Chespin, Fennekin, Froakie, Xerneas, and Yveltal on January 8, 2013.
