The next evolution in Pokémon!
New Pokémon! Explosive 3D battles! Exciting New Features!

Features

3D compatible gameplay

Unlike previous games in the main series, Pokémon X and Y feature a three dimensional style of gameplay, and 3D modeled characters and creatures are used, rather than sprites like has always been done in the main series. In addition, the games still feature 2D elements of gameplay. The battle system is aesthetically overhauled, featuring more lively reactions to the attacks, such as when a Pokémon is being hit.

Renames

In non-Japanese languages, many move and item names are now spelled or formatted differently. For example, ThunderShock is now formatted as Thunder Shock and Faint Attack is now spelled Feint Attack.

Transportation

Players can now walk on an 8 directional grid, allowing diagonal movement, as opposed to the four way grid in previous games.

The player now has the ability to rollerskate, at least under certain conditions, and can also free roam on no grid. This also works with the bike. The player can use the roller skates and can grind to overcome obstacles. Skiddo, Mamoswine, and Rhyhorn can be ridden in certain locations and allow the player to interact with the environment, by destroying rocks and crossing broken paths. Gogoat can also be ridden, although only around Lumiose City in a set path.

Player Search System

Main article: Player Search System

The Player Search System (PSS) is a multiplayer feature that allows people to connect, battle, and trade with other players through the internet. It uses the bottom screen and allows the player to search for other people playing both globally and locally.

Pokémon-Amie

Main article: Pokémon-Amie

Pokémon-Amie is a new feature that allows the player to develop stronger bonds with their Pokémon. It uses the touch screen to allow players to pet, feed, and play with Pokémon currently on their team. Players may interact with their Pokémon by petting or feeding them via the touchscreen or mimicking their movements using the camera.

Sky Battles

Main article: Sky Battle

Sky Battles are battles which are restricted to Flying Pokémon, although some Pokémon with Levitate can enter. These airborne battles take place against Trainers standing far away, such as on cliffs.

Horde Encounters

Main article: Horde Encounter

It is now possible to encounter several wild Pokémon at once. Up to five wild Pokémon will battle against one of the player's Pokémon. These battles offer a lot of experience. Some attacks, such as Rock Slide, are shown to hit all five of the opposing Pokémon. However, after the player's turn, their Pokémon must withstand attacks from all five of the opposing Pokémon.

Super Training

Main article: Super Training

Super Training is a new method of quickly and easily increasing a Pokémon's EVs.

New type

Main article: Fairy (type)

One new type has been introduced, the Fairy type. This type was added to balance the Dragon type, which was previously only weak to itself and Ice. Fairy-type attacks are strong against Dragon, Fighting, and Dark types and resisted by Fire, Poison, and Steel types; Fairy-type Pokémon are weak to Poison- and Steel-type attacks, resist Fighting-, Bug-, and Dark-type attacks, and are immune to Dragon-type attacks.

Trainer customization

Main article: Trainer customization

The player will now be able to change their appearance in-game, allowing them to customize their characters by changing their hair color and clothing.

Gyms

X and Y feature Gyms just as every other main series title. In Kalos, the Gym Leaders are Viola (Bug), Grant (Rock), Korrina (Fighting), Ramos (Grass), Clemont (Electric), Valerie (Fairy), Olympia (Psychic), and Wulfric (Ice).

Elite Four and Champion

Just as in Unova, the Elite Four can be battled in any order. After battling all four, a path to the Champion is unlocked. The Elite Four members are Wikstrom (Steel), Malva (Fire), Drasna (Dragon), and Siebold (Water). After beating all four Elite Four members, the player will face the Champion, Diantha, who uses a variety of types along with a Gardevoir which can Mega Evolve.

Pokémon

See Category:Generation VI Pokémon

70 new Pokémon were introduced for X and Y, bringing the known total from 649 to 719.

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

Mega Evolution

Main article: Mega Evolution

A unique state, Mega Evolution, was introduced in Pokémon X and Y. Mega Evolution is a temporary in-battle transformation that results in an overall increase in stats, sometimes also changing a Pokémon's Ability and types. Not all Pokémon can Mega Evolve. A Pokémon can only Mega Evolve if it is holding a Mega Stone in battle and its Trainer has a Key Stone.

Music

Main article: Pokémon X & Pokémon Y: Super Music Collection

The soundtrack contains most of the background music and effect music from the games. The music is composed by Shota Kageyama (Sound Director of Pokémon X & Y), Hitomi Satō, Minako Adachi, and Junichi Masuda. Pokémon X & Pokémon Y are the first main series titles since Pokémon Gold and Silver that Gō Ichinose did not work on as a composer, since he shifted to a side project of Game Freak's during the development of Pokémon X & Y.
