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. The games take place in the new Kalos region.

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 12, 2013 and will be available for both retail sale and download.[1] All copies of the game will be playable in all seven of the languages the Pokémon games are released in: Japanese, English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Korean.

Features

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 always been done in the main series. The battle system is aesthetically overhauled, featuring more lively reactions to the attacks, such as when a Pokémon is being hit.

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 have been shown to allow the player to grind and overcome obstacles. Gogoat and Rhyhorn can be ridden in certain locations and allow the player to interact with the environment, by destroying rocks and crossing broken paths.

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. While it is known that Fairy-type attacks are strong against the Dragon type and weak against the Fire type, it is unknown what other types it is strong or weak against. It is also unknown what types Fairy-type Pokémon resist.

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. The first Gym Leader is Viola, who specializes in the Bug type. Along with her, three other Gym Leaders have been revealed.


New Pokémon

See Category:Generation VI Pokémon

Currently, 72 new Pokémon are confirmed for X and Y. The total number of new Pokémon that 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.

Mega Evolution

Main article: Mega Evolution

Different from forms, Mega Evolutions are available exclusively in battle and allow for a temporary boost in stats, in some cases changing their Abilities and types. This ability will not be available to all Pokémon. The Pokémon can transform if it is holding a Mega Stone in battle and meets another currently unannounced condition.
