The game begins with the {{player}} waking up in their bedroom in [[Vaniville Town|their hometown]]. After being encouraged by their [[Grace (Kalos)|mother]] to talk to their neighbor — {{ga|Serena}}, if the player is male, or {{ga|Calem}}, if the player is female — the player learns that [[Professor Sycamore]] has a request for five kids: the player, their rival, [[Shauna]], [[Trevor]], and [[Tierno]]. In [[Aquacorde Town]], to fulfill this request, the player chooses a starter Pokémon: {{p|Fennekin}}, {{p|Froakie}}, or {{p|Chespin}}. Shauna will then choose the Pokémon that is weak to the player's starter and Serena/Calem will take the Pokémon that is strong against the player's starter, in traditional [[rival]] fashion. Trevor presents the player with a [[Pokédex]]. After getting a send-off from their mother in Vaniville Town, the player travels along Routes {{rtn|2|Kalos}} and {{rtn|3|Kalos}} and through [[Santalune Forest]]. Upon arrival in [[Santalune City]], the player receives the [[Roller Skates]] in front of the [[Santalune Gym]], where the player defeats the Gym Leader, [[Viola]], and receives the {{Badge|Bug}}. Viola's sister, [[Alexa]], points the way to {{rt|4|Kalos}}.

The game begins with the {{player}} waking up in his/her bedroom in [[Vaniville Town|their hometown]]. After encouraged by their [[Grace (Kalos)|mother]] to talk to their neighbor, {{ga|Serena}}, if the player is male, or {{ga|Calem}}, if the player is female, the player learns that [[Professor Sycamore]] has a task for five kids, including the player character. Also, [[Shauna]] introduces herself and tells the player that she and the player's neighbor will wait for the player in [[Aquacorde Town]].
+
As the player reaches the gate to [[Lumiose City]], they meet [[Sina]] and [[Dexio]], who introduce the new {{t|Fairy}} [[type]]. When the player first reaches Lumiose City, they cannot do much because of a power outage. They go to Professor Sycamore's lab, and soon the rest of their friends arrive. Sycamore allows each of them, including the player, to pick a [[Kanto]] starter Pokémon. On the player's way out, they see Dexio with [[Lysandre]] talking about the potential the Professor's pupils have. Lysandre says he desires a beautiful world and leaves the building. The friends come to the player thereafter, with Tierno directing the player to Café Soleil and Camphrier Town. In Café Soleil, Lysandre is talking to [[Diantha]], an established Kalos actress. He asks her if she wants to remain young and beautiful forever, but she dismisses the question and says that she looks forward to playing more roles as she gets older. After Lysandre leaves, she tells the player that she is a Trainer and looks forward to battling them in the future.
   
Once the player leaves [[Vaniville Town|their hometown]], they go north on [[Kalos Route 1|Route 1]] and arrive in Aquacorde Town, where Shauna calls the player over. Serena/Calem then introduces both [[Trevor]] and [[Tierno]] and Shauna, Trevor, and Tierno all come up with their own ideas for a nickname for the player. From then on, Shauna, as well as Trevor and Tierno from time to time, will address the player character by the selected nickname. Tierno then allows the player to choose a starter Pokémon, {{p|Fennekin}}, {{p|Froakie}}, or {{p|Chespin}}. After the player chooses their starter, Shauna will choose the Pokémon that is weak to the player's starter while Serena/Calem will take the Pokémon that is strong against the player's starter, in traditional [[rival]] fashion. Trevor presents the player with a [[Pokédex]], and Tierno gives the player the {{key|VI|Prof's Letter}} to take to their mother. However, before the player can leave Aquacorde Town, Shauna challenges the player to a battle.
+
The player continues on through {{rt|5|Kalos}} to [[Camphrier Town]], running into [[Korrina]] and her {{p|Lucario}} along the way. On {{rt|7|Kalos}}, a sleeping {{p|Snorlax}} can be found blocking the way. After being directed to the [[Parfum Palace]], the player and Shauna will help find the owner's lost {{p|Furfrou}} before being invited to watch the fireworks show and being given the [[Poké Flute]]. The player returns to Route 7 to wake the Snorlax and unblock the path to reach [[Connecting Cave]]. A boulder in the cave forces the player to take a side exit to the cliff part of {{rt|8|Kalos}}, where they receive the [[List of Pokémon by Kalos Pokédex number|Coastal Kalos Pokédex]]. The player then arrives in [[Ambrette Town]]. Shauna recommends visiting [[Glittering Cave]], east of {{rt|9|Kalos}}, to search for more Pokémon. The player rides a Rhyhorn on Route 9 before entering Glittering Cave. Inside Glittering Cave, the player and Calem/Serena encounter [[Team Flare]] for the first time and rescues a {{tc|Scientist}}.
   
The player defeats Shauna and, after she heals the player's Pokémon, the player returns to Vaniville Town and gives the Prof's Letter to their mother. The player's mother welcomes the player back, congratulates them on receiving a starter Pokémon, and then gives them a [[Town Map]]. The player leaves, after being given a send-off by their mother's {{p|Rhyhorn}}. From there, the player goes north once more, passing through Aquacorde Town on their way to [[Santalune City]], which is accessed by travelling along Routes {{rtn|2|Kalos}} and {{rtn|3|Kalos}} and making it through [[Santalune Forest]]. Upon arrival in Santalune City, the player battles a Trainer who is standing in front of the entrance to the [[Santalune Gym|town's Gym]], receiving the {{key|VI|Roller Skates}} after the battle and gaining access to the Santalune City Gym. If the player defeats the Santalune City Gym Leader, [[Viola]], they will receive the {{Badge|Bug}} from her and her sister, [[Alexa]], will let the player pass on to {{rt|4|Kalos}}, as well as give the player the {{key|VI|Exp. Share}}.
+
The player crosses the coastal part of Route 8 to [[Cyllage City]], where defeating [[Gym Leader]] [[Grant]] earns the player the {{Badge|Cliff}}.

She tells the player that Lucario can sense something in the player's aura. Past {{rt|11|Kalos}} and [[Reflection Cave]], the player arrives in [[Shalour City]] and receives a message over the [[Holo Caster]] to visit [[Gurkinn]], the [[Mega Evolution]] expert, in the [[Tower of Mastery]]. Gurkinn tells the player and their friends about Mega Evolution, which requires a [[Mega Stone]], [[Key Stone|Mega Ring]], and a special bond between the Trainer and Pokémon. Unfortunately, Gurkinn only has one Mega Ring to give. The friends decide the player should get it, and Korrina will tell them to come to [[Shalour Gym|her Gym]] and defeat her first. After she is defeated, she awards the {{Badge|Rumble}} and, after a second battle at the top of the Tower of Mastery, gives the player the Mega Ring and a Lucario holding the Lucarionite.

When the player first reaches Lumiose City, they cannot do much because of a power outage. They go to Professor Sycamore's lab and soon afterwards everyone arrives. Everyone battles each other while Professor Sycamore battles the player with the first stage of the [[Kanto]] Starters. Afterwards, he lets the player choose one. The others choose one although they do not use them on their teams. When the player goes down to the ground floor they see Dexio with [[Lysandre]] talking about the potential the Professor's pupils have. He says he desires a beautiful world and leaves the building. The friends come to the player thereafter, with Tierno directing the player to Café Soleil and Camphrier Town.

When the player arrives at [[Dendemille Town]] via Routes {{rtn|15|Kalos}} or {{rtn|16|Kalos}}, Professor Sycamore and his aides will discuss the legend of {{p|Xerneas}} or {{p|Yveltal}}. The player cannot head to [[Anistar City]] because the {{p|Mamoswine}} needed to navigate {{rt|17|Kalos}} is gone, so the player finds it at [[Frost Cavern]], concerned about Team Flare's interference. The player must defeat [[Mable]] to make Team Flare retreat, save an {{p|Abomasnow}}, and calm the Mamoswine so the player can travel to [[Anistar City]]. There, the player earns the {{Badge|Psychic}} from [[Olympia]].
   
In Café Soleil, Lysandre is talking to [[Diantha]], an established Kalos actress.

+
After the player leaves the [[Anistar Gym]], Lysandre will reveal over the Holo Caster his plans to use the [[ultimate weapon]]. To stop him, the player travels to [[Lysandre Labs]] and defeat him and the four female scientists. The player discovers that Lysandre has imprisoned [[AZ]]. Lysandre tells the story of how AZ used the ultimate weapon to revive his {{p|Floette}} and then used it to end the war 3,000 years ago. He promises that if the player defeats [[Xerosic]], he will turn off the ultimate weapon, but Xerosic turns the weapon on remotely and unleashes it in Geosenge Town. At the [[Team Flare Secret HQ]] there, Lysandre tells of his plans to eradicate all Pokémon and people who do not agree with his ideals. After the player defeats him and his admins and catches the Legendary Pokémon, Lysandre will try to use the remaining energy in the weapon for his selfish goals, but is instead only caught in the destruction it wreaks.
   
The player then continues on through {{rt|5|Kalos}} to [[Camphrier Town]]. running into [[Korrina]] and her {{p|Lucario}} along the way. On {{rt|7|Kalos}}, a sleeping {{p|Snorlax}} can be found blocking the way.

After the player enters the [[Hall of Fame]], Sycamore organizes a parade for the player. During the parade, AZ asks the player for a battle. Afterward, AZ says he finally knows what it means to be a Trainer again, and his Floette appears from the sky and is reunited with him.
 
The player continues through [[Connecting Cave]]. A boulder blocking the path causes the player to take a side entrance towards the cliff part of {{rt|8|Kalos}}. Once the player reaches Route 8, the player will receive the [[List of Pokémon by Kalos Pokédex number|Coastal Kalos Pokédex]]. The player then arrives in [[Ambrette Town]].

On the way to the tower, Tierno will give the player the {{key|VI|Intriguing Stone}}. He tells the player to show it to Gurkinn to see if it is a [[Mega Stone]]. Gurkinn informs the player that the Intriguing Stone is just a stone. He tells Shauna, Tierno, Trevor, Serena, and Calem that Mega Evolution requires a Mega Stone, Mega Ring, and a special bond between the Trainer and Pokémon. Unfortunately, Gurkinn only has one Mega Ring to give. Tierno, Trevor, and Shauna all rule themselves out from receiving the ring due to knowing that the player and Calem/Serena are the stronger Trainers. The two Trainers agree to battle for it.

===Gameplay===
  +
In the Pokémon X demo, the {{player}} is {{ga|Calem}} (named Xavier or エックス in Japanese); in the Pokémon Y demo, the player is {{ga|Serena}} (named Yvonne or ワイ in Japanese). The player starts with a random [[Kalos]] [[starter Pokémon]], {{p|Helioptile}}, and {{p|Sylveon}}; all 3 Pokémon are at level 30 and have a random [[gender]], and have a regular chance of being {{Shiny}}. The player starts off the demo with 10 {{i|Poké Ball}}s, which they can use to catch the wild Pokémon that appear. The player also starts off with 5 [[Potion]]s, 5 [[Hyper Potion]]s, 5 [[Paralyze Heal]]s, and 5 [[Awakening]]s in the bag. [[Pokémon-Amie]] is constantly present on the touch screen while the player is in the overworld. Pokémon do not gain [[experience]] in the demo.
   
In battle, the bag is divided into the same four categories it has been since [[Generation IV]]: HP/PP restore, status restore, Poké Balls, and battle items. The player starts off the demo with 10 Poké Balls, and can catch the wild Pokémon that appear.
+
The player is welcomed by [[Alexa]], and starts in a modified version of {{rt|4|Kalos}}, an area with a large fountain in an area of decreased elevation, surrounded by small staircases leading to the fountain. Between the player's starting position and the fountain is [[tall grass]]. A wild {{p|Pikachu}} will appear as soon as the player steps into the tall grass for the first time..
   
 
At the fountain is a {{p|Skiddo}}, which the player can mount with A and dismount with B. As Skiddo cannot climb stairs, the player is restricted to the small area around the fountain.

Just past the fountain is the opposite-gendered player character. If the player interacts with him or her, he or she will challenge the player to a battle. He or she has the starter Pokémon that is super effective against the player's.

Just past the fountain is the opposite-gendered [[player character]] ({{ga|Serena}} in X demo or {{ga|Calem}} in Y demo). If the player interacts with him or her, he or she will challenge the player to a battle. He or she has the starter Pokémon that is super effective against the player's and a {{p|Gabite}}.
   
Past the fountain is a field of flowers. Wild Pokémon can be found while walking in flowers. A {{p|Fletchling}} can be seen walking in one of the patches of flowers. Past the field of flowers are several hedge mazes, each containing a {{p|Marill}} walking around that only makes its cry when interacted with. [[Shauna]] and [[Trevor]] are standing around in the general area. If the player interacts with Shauna, she will challenge the player to a battle. Shauna has the starter Pokémon with a type disadvantage to the player's.

Past the fountain is a field of red and yellow flowers, in which [[wild Pokémon]] can be encountered. A {{p|Fletchling}} is walking around in one of the patches of red flowers. Past the field of flowers are two hedge mazes on the left and right, each containing a {{p|Litleo}} and a {{p|Marill}} walking around; if the player interacts with one of these Pokémon, it will cry.
   
Past these mazes is [[Professor Sycamore]] standing in front of a [[gate]]. If the player interacts with him, he will give the player a level 100 {{p|Mewtwo}} holding its [[Mega Stone]] with {{m|Psyshock}}, {{m|Thunderbolt}}, {{m|Shadow Ball}}, and {{m|Recover}}; the player loses access to their other Pokémon at this point. He then challenges the player to a battle with his {{p|Crobat}}, {{p|Dragonite}}, and {{p|Chandelure}}.
+
[[Shauna]] is standing around in the north general area. If the player interacts with Shauna, she will challenge the player to a battle. Shauna has the starter Pokémon with a type disadvantage to the player's. [[Tierno]] is standing in the northwest and [[Trevor]] in the northeast. If the player talks to Tierno, he will dance; if the player talks to Trevor, he will comment that people want to know more about Pokémon.
   
{{p|Chespin}}'s moveset is {{m|Vine Whip}}, {{m|Leech Seed}}, {{m|Growl}}, and {{m|Rollout}}. {{p|Fennekin}}'s moveset is {{m|Psybeam}}, {{m|Fire Spin}}, {{m|Tail Whip}}, and {{m|Flame Charge}}. {{p|Froakie}}'s moveset is {{m|Water Pulse}}, {{m|Round}}, {{m|Quick Attack}}, and {{m|Lick}}.
+
Past these mazes is [[Professor Sycamore]] standing in front of a [[gate]]. After a certain amount of time has passed, the player will be warped to Sycamore, and he will immediately talk to the player; it is also possible to simply talk to him before this time. He will give the player a level 100 {{p|Mewtwo}} holding a {{DL|Mega Stone|Mewtwonite Y}}; the player loses access to their other Pokémon at this point. He then challenges the player to a battle with his own level 100 {{p|Crobat}}, {{p|Chandelure}}, and {{p|Dragonite}}.

Announced on January 8, 2013 at 8 pm JST during a worldwide announcement by Satoru Iwata through Nintendo Direct, the paired versions were released worldwide (except for select countries) on October 12, 2013 and are available for both retail sale and download.[8] All copies of the game are playable in all seven of the languages that the Pokémon games are released in: Japanese, English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Korean.

Plot

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

The game begins with the player waking up in their bedroom in their hometown. After being encouraged by their mother to talk to their neighbor — Serena, if the player is male, or Calem, if the player is female — the player learns that Professor Sycamore has a request for five kids: the player, their rival, Shauna, Trevor, and Tierno. In Aquacorde Town, to fulfill this request, the player chooses a starter Pokémon: Fennekin, Froakie, or Chespin. Shauna will then choose the Pokémon that is weak to the player's starter and Serena/Calem will take the Pokémon that is strong against the player's starter, in traditional rival fashion. Trevor presents the player with a Pokédex. After getting a send-off from their mother in Vaniville Town, the player travels along Routes 2 and 3 and through Santalune Forest. Upon arrival in Santalune City, the player receives the Roller Skates in front of the Santalune Gym, where the player defeats the Gym Leader, Viola, and receives the Bug Badge. Viola's sister, Alexa, points the way to Route 4.

As the player reaches the gate to Lumiose City, they meet Sina and Dexio, who introduce the new Fairy type. When the player first reaches Lumiose City, they cannot do much because of a power outage. They go to Professor Sycamore's lab, and soon the rest of their friends arrive. Sycamore allows each of them, including the player, to pick a Kanto starter Pokémon. On the player's way out, they see Dexio with Lysandre talking about the potential the Professor's pupils have. Lysandre says he desires a beautiful world and leaves the building. The friends come to the player thereafter, with Tierno directing the player to Café Soleil and Camphrier Town. In Café Soleil, Lysandre is talking to Diantha, an established Kalos actress. He asks her if she wants to remain young and beautiful forever, but she dismisses the question and says that she looks forward to playing more roles as she gets older. After Lysandre leaves, she tells the player that she is a Trainer and looks forward to battling them in the future.

The player continues on through Route 5 to Camphrier Town, running into Korrina and her Lucario along the way. On Route 7, a sleeping Snorlax can be found blocking the way. After being directed to the Parfum Palace, the player and Shauna will help find the owner's lost Furfrou before being invited to watch the fireworks show and being given the Poké Flute. The player returns to Route 7 to wake the Snorlax and unblock the path to reach Connecting Cave. A boulder in the cave forces the player to take a side exit to the cliff part of Route 8, where they receive the Coastal Kalos Pokédex. The player then arrives in Ambrette Town. Shauna recommends visiting Glittering Cave, east of Route 9, to search for more Pokémon. The player rides a Rhyhorn on Route 9 before entering Glittering Cave. Inside Glittering Cave, the player and Calem/Serena encounter Team Flare for the first time and rescues a Scientist.

The player crosses the coastal part of Route 8 to Cyllage City, where defeating Gym Leader Grant earns the player the Cliff Badge. Continuing on, the player encounters more Team Flare Grunts on Route 10 and meets Korrina again while passing through Geosenge Town. She tells the player that Lucario can sense something in the player's aura. Past Route 11 and Reflection Cave, the player arrives in Shalour City and receives a message over the Holo Caster to visit Gurkinn, the Mega Evolution expert, in the Tower of Mastery. Gurkinn tells the player and their friends about Mega Evolution, which requires a Mega Stone, Mega Ring, and a special bond between the Trainer and Pokémon. Unfortunately, Gurkinn only has one Mega Ring to give. The friends decide the player should get it, and Korrina will tell them to come to her Gym and defeat her first. After she is defeated, she awards the Rumble Badge and, after a second battle at the top of the Tower of Mastery, gives the player the Mega Ring and a Lucario holding the Lucarionite. The player heads for Coumarine City by way of Route 12. There, the player challenges Ramos at the Coumarine Gym. After earning the Plant Badge, the player heads to Route 13 and receives the Mountain Kalos Pokédex from Sina and Dexio.

The player cannot enter Lumiose City from Route 13 because of the power outage in the city, so they instead visit the route's Power Plant, where they encounter Team Flare again. After defeating Aliana, a scientist for Team Flare, the power to Lumiose City is restored. At Prism Tower, Clemont will invite the player to battle him. After his defeat, he will awards the Voltage Badge. The player then travels to Laverre City by way of Route 14. After the player earns the Fairy Badge from Gym Leader Valerie, they and Calem/Serena encounter Team Flare again at the Poké Ball Factory. Defeating Celosia and Bryony drives away the villainous team. When the player arrives at Dendemille Town via Routes 15 or 16, Professor Sycamore and his aides will discuss the legend of Xerneas or Yveltal. The player cannot head to Anistar City because the Mamoswine needed to navigate Route 17 is gone, so the player finds it at Frost Cavern, concerned about Team Flare's interference. The player must defeat Mable to make Team Flare retreat, save an Abomasnow, and calm the Mamoswine so the player can travel to Anistar City. There, the player earns the Psychic Badge from Olympia.

After the player leaves the Anistar Gym, Lysandre will reveal over the Holo Caster his plans to use the ultimate weapon. To stop him, the player travels to Lysandre Labs and defeat him and the four female scientists. The player discovers that Lysandre has imprisoned AZ. Lysandre tells the story of how AZ used the ultimate weapon to revive his Floette and then used it to end the war 3,000 years ago. He promises that if the player defeats Xerosic, he will turn off the ultimate weapon, but Xerosic turns the weapon on remotely and unleashes it in Geosenge Town. At the Team Flare Secret HQ there, Lysandre tells of his plans to eradicate all Pokémon and people who do not agree with his ideals. After the player defeats him and his admins and catches the Legendary Pokémon, Lysandre will try to use the remaining energy in the weapon for his selfish goals, but is instead only caught in the destruction it wreaks.

The player travels through Route 18, Couriway Town, and Route 19 to Snowbelle City, where the Gym Leader, Wulfric, is missing. To find him, the player navigates Route 20 to get to the Pokémon Village. Wulfric explains that the Pokémon there were once abused. Wulfric returns to the Snowbelle Gym and rewards the player with the Iceberg Badge for defeating him. With the final Badge in hand, the player heads through Route 21 to Victory Road and the Pokémon League, where they defeat Fire-type specialist Malva, Steel-type specialist Wikstrom, Dragon-type specialist Drasna, Water-type specialist Siebold, and Champion Diantha. After the player enters the Hall of Fame, Sycamore organizes a parade for the player. During the parade, AZ asks the player for a battle. Afterward, AZ says he finally knows what it means to be a Trainer again, and his Floette appears from the sky and is reunited with him.

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 cel-shaded characters and creatures are used, rather than sprites like has always been done in the main series. Stereoscopic 3D can be used in Single Battles, cutscenes, specific areas, and under some special circumstances; otherwise, stereoscopic 3D is not usable. The battle system is aesthetically overhauled, featuring more lively reactions to the attacks, such as when a Pokémon is being hit.

Name changes

Main article: List of modified moves → Name changes

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, the player's Pokémon must withstand attacks from all five of the opposing Pokémon each turn.

Super Training

Main article: Super Training

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

Fairy 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 is now 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 most other main series titles. 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 Malva (Fire), Siebold (Water), Wikstrom (Steel), and Drasna (Dragon). 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

72 new Pokémon were introduced for X and Y, bringing the known total from 649 to 721.

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.

Updated cries

Many Pokémon introduced prior to Pokémon X and Y received newer, more realistic cries upon its release.

Compatibility

Pokémon X and Y can connect with the Pokémon Global Link website. They are mostly compatible with Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, with the exception of alternate forms, Mega Evolutions, moves, or Abilities introduced in those games, which cannot be traded to or used in battle with X and Y. The games are also able to communicate with Pokémon Bank, which allows the storage of Pokémon. Through Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter, X and Y are able to communicate indirectly with games from Generation V.

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 and Y), Hitomi Satō, Minako Adachi, and Junichi Masuda. Pokémon X and 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 and Y.

Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.

According to Junichi Masuda on November 18, 2013, X and Y were in development for 3.5 years and involved more than 500 people if localization staff is included.[18]

Demonstration

The demo version of Pokémon X and Y were playable at several events worldwide prior to the games' release.

Gameplay

In the Pokémon X demo, the player is Calem (named Xavier or エックス in Japanese); in the Pokémon Y demo, the player is Serena (named Yvonne or ワイ in Japanese). The player starts with a random Kalos starter Pokémon, Helioptile, and Sylveon; all 3 Pokémon are at level 30 and have a random gender, and have a regular chance of being Shiny. The player starts off the demo with 10 Poké Balls, which they can use to catch the wild Pokémon that appear. The player also starts off with 5 Potions, 5 Hyper Potions, 5 Paralyze Heals, and 5 Awakenings in the bag. Pokémon-Amie is constantly present on the touch screen while the player is in the overworld. Pokémon do not gain experience in the demo.

The player is welcomed by Alexa, and starts in a modified version of Route 4, an area with a large fountain in an area of decreased elevation, surrounded by small staircases leading to the fountain. Between the player's starting position and the fountain is tall grass. A wild Pikachu will appear as soon as the player steps into the tall grass for the first time..

At the fountain is a Skiddo, which the player can mount with A and dismount with B. As Skiddo cannot climb stairs, the player is restricted to the small area around the fountain.

Just past the fountain is the opposite-gendered player character (Serena in X demo or Calem in Y demo). If the player interacts with him or her, he or she will challenge the player to a battle. He or she has the starter Pokémon that is super effective against the player's and a Gabite.

Past the fountain is a field of red and yellow flowers, in which wild Pokémon can be encountered. A Fletchling is walking around in one of the patches of red flowers. Past the field of flowers are two hedge mazes on the left and right, each containing a Litleo and a Marill walking around; if the player interacts with one of these Pokémon, it will cry.

Shauna is standing around in the north general area. If the player interacts with Shauna, she will challenge the player to a battle. Shauna has the starter Pokémon with a type disadvantage to the player's. Tierno is standing in the northwest and Trevor in the northeast. If the player talks to Tierno, he will dance; if the player talks to Trevor, he will comment that people want to know more about Pokémon.

Past these mazes is Professor Sycamore standing in front of a gate. After a certain amount of time has passed, the player will be warped to Sycamore, and he will immediately talk to the player; it is also possible to simply talk to him before this time. He will give the player a level 100 Mewtwo holding a Mewtwonite Y; the player loses access to their other Pokémon at this point. He then challenges the player to a battle with his own level 100 Crobat, Chandelure, and Dragonite.

Trivia

  • These Pokémon games are named after the x and y-axes of the Cartesian coordinate system.[25]
  • Although Game Freak released Pokémon X for the Nintendo 3DS in 2013, the tentative title (unconfirmed to be a codename for Crystal) for a game similar to the Japanese version of Pokémon Crystal with planned support to connect to a mobile phone and set for an April 2000 release was also Pocket Monsters X (ポケットモンスターX), according to multiple sources such as an Asahi Shimbun news article from December 1999.[26] The game was postponed until 2001 due to the planned release of the Game Boy Advance.[27] The article mentions an adapter for linking a Game Boy to a mobile phone, with the datacenter server used for the feature being hosted by Kyocera in Kyoto.
  • These are the first core series games that do not have Version (or its equivalent in that language) in their Western language names.
  • These are the first Nintendo-published physical games to be released on the same date worldwide,[28] as well as the only core series games to do so.
  • These Pokémon games have the shortest names using only one letter each (X and Y).
  • These are the only core series games after Pokémon Platinum to not play the game mascot's cry upon pressing START on the title screen, instead playing a generic confirmation sound.
  • These are the first core series games not to have an introduction prior to the title screen. Instead, the introduction plays after the title screen animation.
  • The Japanese and Korean logos for X and Y include the Mega Evolution sigil.
  • These are so far the only primary pair of games to not be followed up by a later game set in the same region.
