Features

Full 3D gameplay

Unlike any other games in the main series, Pokémon X and Y feature a completely 3-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.

Gyms

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 released were Chespin, Fennekin, Froakie, Xerneas, and Yveltal on January 8, 2013.
