Titles missing "Version"?

Do the titles include "version" this time? I'm not seeing it on the official site or the trailer. I think they're just called Pokemon X and Pokemon Y now. Hheebo (talk) 14:17, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Pokémon X and Y "Versions"?

Is it right to be calling them Pokemon X Version and Pokemon Y version? Unlike previous games Nintendo hasn't used the word "version" when referring to them by name, just calling them Pokemon X and Pokemon Y rather than, to use the most recent example, "Pokemon Black Version 2" and "Pokemon White Version 2". The logos don't contain the word "version" either. I think they should simply be referred to as Pokemon X and Y. EDIT: Ninja'd by Hheebo. Delete if necessary. NFreak007 (talk) 14:19, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

I second this. "Versions" hasn't been mentioned at all, nor are contained in the logos. If "Versions" were in the title, there's usually a habit of saying it every time the game title comes up. It's misleading to list the article as it being called "X and Y Versions" if there really isn't any facts backing that up. --Manaphy1 16:20, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Thirded. It should be Pokémon X and Y, as I stated on Pokémon Black and White Versions 2's trivia section. Please rename this page and change this article and the Generation VI one accordingly. Digifiend (talk) 17:15, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Fourthed. Every other main series entry has had "version" on it, this is different in all languages. This should be reflected in the title of the page. - unsigned comment from NP Chilla (talkcontribs)
Here. Enjoy. Masatoshitalk 18:00, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
That seems to be a screenshot from Nintendo3DS's video. The official Pokémon channel uploaded the same trailer, and they don't use the word Version, and they're strict with that word, putting it in all Black Version 1 and White Version 1 videos. ToastUltimatum 19:31, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
The same video is also on, without the word "Version." I fifth the notion that it should be struck from here, because it doesn't appear to be in any official media. --The Great Butler (talk) 02:40, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
I think it would be a good idea to move it to Pokémon X and Y, 'cause it doesn't even say the name "version" in the title. In previous games, the official sources have said "Pokémon [title] Version" only if it has the word "version in the logo. These games are different, they don't have "version" in the title at all, so I really wouldn't see any reason to have it titled "Pokémon X and Y Versions".—Platinum Lucario (talk) 10:29, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
I would like to agree with the page move as well, but I really can't say until there is more usage of just "Pokemon X and Y" an not "Pokemon X version and Pokemon Y version". I am undecided since I've seen Pokémon Direct recordings with the word "version" in it (like in the picture posted by Masatoshi), but everything else points to just calling it Pokémon X and Y. - Vhayes1992 23:38, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
The official press release repeatedly lists the trademarked titles as Pokémon X and Pokémon Y and never uses the term "Version." Excerpt: "Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be the blueprint for an exciting array of new animation, Pokémon TCG, and toys debuting around the world."
In all of their press releases for other games in the series they use "Version," for example this excerpt from the B2W2 press release: "The successors to the acclaimed Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games, Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2..."
So it seems pretty obvious that it should be moved to "Pokémon X and Y."AmaranthSparrow (talk) 21:40, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Heck, even Poké reads "An all-new 3D Pokémon adventure packed with never-before-seen Pokémon will launch worldwide in October 2013. Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will present a new generation of Pokémon, and introduce players to an exciting new adventure in a breathtaking 3D world." Could an admin PLEASE hurry up and move the name of this page? ToastUltimatum 23:25, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
By moving the page, not only would {{v}}, {{2v}}, {{2v2}}, and {{game}} have to be edited (besides the fact that they are all massively used) but every single page that links here would also have to be edited. There's also {{PokémonInfobox}}, which is only used on over 650 pages. Templates on the Archives would also have to be changed. --Abcboy (talk) 23:44, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm against moving this page, at the very least until further information is available. "Version" is part of what separates the main series for games like Stadium, XD, and the like. Furthermore, there is at least some evidence that these games are still titled "X Version" and "Y Version" as seen in the picture Masa posted. It seems to me like the company is merely advertising the game in this manner because this is how the fandom always refers to the games, that is, without the word "version". Furthermore, this is probably simpler since it saves them the trouble of having to write "version" in several different languages all at once (remember, this is getting an instant worldwide release, and "Pokemon" is pretty universal while "version" isn't). We should at least wait a while before moving the page, and then having to move it back again. Crystal Talian 23:49, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Just to clarify, Masatoshi's image wasn't official; the official trailer doesn't have that banner on it, nor refers to them at all as having "Versions". As for the templates, they don't appear hard to edit in a change if you use "if switches". --Manaphy1 00:53, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
Just to clarify, "#if:" switches work differently than "#switch:"es. Don't worry though, it'll only cause the servers to fail like when {{roundy}} used them.--Abcboy (talk) 01:08, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
His image was official. This is official straight from Nintendo's website. It says "version". This is why I am sort of reserving a conclusion and doing a wait and see. - Vhayes1992 02:16, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
Where? From what I can see, it calls them Polémon X (lol, presumably a typo) and Pokémon Y. Digifiend (talk) 03:48, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
The video. --Abcboy (talk) 03:49, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
Seems more likely to be some sort of mistake, given that the other videos don't feature that and the press release specifically omits the word. Anyway, I have contacted Nintendo regarding the title of the games, and will wait to see what they have to say about it. --Dorsal Axe (talk) 17:14, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
What about the Nintendo's UK website? --Abcboy (talk) 21:46, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
All of the official Nintendo websites, including even the Pokémon website clearly state it as Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. There is no official Nintendo website that calls them "Pokémon X Version" and "Pokémon Y Version".—Platinum Lucario (talk) 08:19, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
The point is that in the official Pokémon Direct announcement it is present. Every other main series game has it, and in the official announcement (which is on official Nintendo websites) it uses it. Until we get boxart, we should follow what we have been given. It is very commonplace to drop "version" when talking about the titles (Iwata did it himself in the Pokémon Direct video, while "version" was shown on the screen). --SnorlaxMonster 08:38, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
Okay, Nintendo got back to me. According to them, it's just "Pokémon X" and "Pokémon Y", and they go on to mention that whatever the website says is the "current" and most up-to-date official source. (and I must say, I'm impressed with how quickly they responded :p). --Dorsal Axe (talk) 13:36, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
Then they forgot to remove the Version thing in the video. This seems solid enough for us. We would be moving this page to Pokémon X and Y and doing all necessary changes soon (not before letting the rest of the staff know). Masatoshitalk 14:32, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
Upon further discussion, we decided to put the moving on hold until we make sure of some stuff related to TPCi. It's still strange that after 15 years, they decide to drop "Version" just like that. Masatoshitalk 16:49, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
Aww, can't you please move the page already? It's already been confirmed by Nintendo that it's called simply Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, it even says that in the official logos of the trailer and official website of that it's only called Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. What do you think? Do you really think it's going to change just to the way you think it's going to be? I'm afraid you're just not used to change, and I understand it takes us a while to adapt to change. ^^—Platinum Lucario (talk) 04:38, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
It has nothing to do with being afraid of change. We needed to be absolutely sure, which is why they've put it off so far. R.A. Hunter Blade 05:22, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm sure we have had plenty of proof that it is simply Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, having known that is an official source that comes from the official Pokémon website. That website alone is enough to make you absolutely sure that it really is official. ;) —Platinum Lucario (talk) 14:47, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

New region

In this article it states that the new region is likely based off of France but the Generation VI page says it draws inspiration from various points within Europe. The pages should be more consistent and more neutral about the subject. Արիանո 14:50, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

  • The Nintendo Direct Trailer begins with Pikachu atop the Eiffel Tower. Unova draws from inspirations outside of the strict real world New York; it's not conflicting to say it's both based on France and draws inspiration from the rest of Europe.

Trivia to be added, I believe...

A bit of trivia to be added:

  • These are the first main series games to have letters in the title rather than color names.
  • The game titles may be named after the X and Y axes of the Cartesian coordinations. ~~LDEJRuff~~ 10:04, 8 January, 2013 (UTC)
Given that the Japanese logos clearly have DNA helixes in them, I think it's safe to say that they were going for genetics. Not coordinates. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 15:10, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Why not both? --Dorsal Axe (talk) 15:23, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Because the Japanese logos have DNA helixes in them so they are standing for genetics, not coordinates. It was made pretty clear by Jo. Rainbow Shifter (talk) 17:09, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

They're obviously named after the x and y chromosomes, not coordinates. Munlax (talk) 17:14, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Could it not be a double meaning? Digifiend (talk) 17:16, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
And what makes you think it's coordinates? For all I know, we could also use algebraic expressions. So far, Jo's bet is the safest. Since it has helixes that resemble a DNA string, it's unlikely to have been based in coordinates. Masatoshitalk 17:19, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
It's obviously based on Genetics, but Gamefreak and Nintendo love puns. X axis and Y axis. If the third legendary forms a Z shape, then I think it's safe to say that it's also partially a stealth 3DS pun --Shadowater (talk) 20:26, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Why would it be based off coordinates anyway? It makes more sense to have them based off genetics seeming as you breed Pokemon in the game. And no, it has been said numerous times: The Japanese logos have DNA helixes in them. End of story. Rainbow Shifter (talk) 17:23, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
That doesn't really discount the other reasoning. You may notice the logo is also in 3D text (which they've never done for a logo before), which would indicate to me that they're going for a double entendre with the titles. --Dorsal Axe (talk) 17:41, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
I thought it was to do with the buttons on the DS and 3DS consoles, shows what I know...TurtleLover1999 (talk) 20:31, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

More trivia for your perusal: They'll be the first main series games to be released simultaneously worldwide, and "Pokemon X" was the original name for both Lugia and Pokemon Crystal. Luigi-San 22:10, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

I agree about the released simultaneously worldwide as I was planning to suggest that myself. -Tyler53841 (talk) 02:13, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
I don't think that the genetic base is so obvious, that thing in the logo can mean a lot of things. Also the coordinates reasoning in the first 3-dimentional game on a 3DS is supported by the fact that Yveltal is flying while Xerneas is on the ground, like the axes. Can't be a coincidence. However save this geneticVSgeometic debate til we know if there is any Z Pokemon. It would kill the genetic theory and support the coordinates one. --Tano (talk) 20:22, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
The fact that one flies and the other one roams the land does not mean they are based in coordinates or spacial axes, it CAN be a coincidence. The DNA string is heavily implied in the Japanese logo and supports the theory, while the axial theory only has a "What if the third version is Z?" as its support, and the fact that Xerneas runs horizontally (Even diagonally when it jumps!) and Yveltal flies (although horizontally, vertically, diagonally, you name it). Masatoshitalk 20:35, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
They would have been pretty stupid if they made them able to move only horizontally or vertically, and unable to jump. What kind of argument is that? The point is that the X axis on a graph goes across, the Y axis goes up, and is the Y Pokemon that flies, while the X pokemon is on the ground, not the opposite. However, as I said, we should wait. I'm not saying that the coordinates theory is the right one (well, that's my intuition), but I don't think you have any proof to say for sure that they're related to chromosomes either, except a small low definition detail on the logo that could be anything. I can totally see a Z pokemon related to stereo3D coming. It's almost impossible that they'll do nothing to use the 3D function of the console. —Tano (talk) 21:14, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Based off France?

To suggest the region will 'likely' be based on France seems to be speculation of the sort that the banner of the top forbids, Tokyo also has a structure like the Eiffel Tower. Alexsau1991 (talk) 17:12, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

The streets have an European-like setting; Pikachu spread his message from a location that seemed to be the same as France; that tower looks like the Eiffel Tower and it seems to use gray instead of white and red. While it's not confirmed, it is plausible that the region might be based in France. Masatoshitalk 17:18, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
While it seems plausible, even likely. Isn't it still speculation? And why the entire region, rather than that particular city (I don't recall France having a desert, for example)? Castelia City in Black and White is said to be based off New York, yet the entire region isn't said to be based on the USA. Alexsau1991 (talk) 17:23, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
There's a big difference between the USA and France, the US is a massive country (in terms of size and little would be explored, if not ignoring plenty of cities). I for one think it may be based in Europe, but that city, along with that picture with the bridge remind me of the Palace of Versailles. Most people seem to agree it might be based in Europe/France, so for the time being, we'll leave it like this. Masatoshitalk 17:50, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Pikachu's pretty clearly shown on the Eiffel Tower, in a country in the general location that everyone expects France to be. --Dorsal Axe (talk) 18:05, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Regardless it is very blatant speculation, of which this encyclopaedia has clearly warned it's editors of avoiding. Popular agreement is NOT "confirmation by a reliable source". What's the point in that rule, if your so keen on breaking it? Alexsau1991 (talk) 18:41, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I do agree that it's speculation right now. It's like when everybody put Kyurem as the third member of the Tao trio before it was confirmed, despite them arguing tooth and nail and out right refusing to allow Giratina to be stated as the third member of the Dragon trio before Platinum came out Shadowater (talk) 20:28, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Exactly. It's really inconsistent. As an admin, it seems as if Masatoshi is going for a 'do as I say, not as I do'. You can't rule 'no speculation', then allow a piece that you favour, or personally find convincing.
Even if the Eiffel Tower could be considered more than speculation, how do we arrive at the fact the WHOLE region is based on France?.. It's conjecture after conjecture... Alexsau1991 (talk) 01:04, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
In the trailer, Pikachu is seen on top of the Eiffel Tower. Literally. The camera zooms out and shows it in France. Saying the region is based on France is less of speculation, and more of an observation giving readers some idea what the region looks like. Rather than explaining every tiny little detail about the location, we can just blanket sweep it by saying, "It looks a lot like France." But obviously it's NOT France, cause Pokémon regions have almost never been real locations. (Sans Kanto. Kind of.) Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:31, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
I think it would be a good idea to forbid this from being posted for now until more conclusive proof is gathered by any means from official sources to verify this though it would be a very slim chance that any of this is true. -Tyler53841 (talk) 02:16, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
I should also point out that Junichi Masuda's current Twitter profile picture is him next to the Eiffel Tower and there is at least one message commenting on his trip to France. Possibly a coincidence, though it's hardly an argument against the region being based off France. - Blazios talk 02:23, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Texas has an Eiffel Tower. Japan has a Statue of Liberty too, but Japan isn't the first place you think of when you think of the Statue of Liberty, is it? Then don't even get me started on Las Vegas. Pikachu is in the real life France in the intro, the girl's attire seems very French to me personally, the Pokémon team went to France for "work related reasons". I don't really see anything pointing it away from France, and I'm done having this discussion. There are more important things to worry about. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:53, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
huh. didn't know france had a desert. that city is obviously based on paris, but i have doubts on the entire region being based on france alone. just my 2cents, i could be wrong, but hey, speculation is speculation ;) Tarilaan (talk) 11:37, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Pretty sure there's not a desert full of ancient ruins or mountain ranges in New York City, either, yet they're both in Unova. The game COULD be based in all of Europe, but so far we've only seen evidence of France. Saying the game "seems to be based on France" doesn't exclude the possibility of it also being based on other areas as well, in any case. --ACDragonMaster (talk) 02:54, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
Europe is the safest assumption til the game is released and we can tell for sure if it's France or more. No reason to rush guys, we don't have enough information. Even if all we have seen is from France (it's not), it still doesn't mean that there won't be any Pisa Tower or Berlin Wall or Roman Coliseum (that I'd very much like) in another footage. --Tano (talk) 20:25, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
Also the 2 legendaries "Xcalibur" and "Yvern" have a great European feeling more then French. –Tano (talk) 21:16, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
Exactly, we don't have enough information, so why should we jump to "it seems to be based on Europe" from the get-go? If anything, all evidence points to France (Eiffel tower, Versailles, Pikachu's location, Masuda's trip, etc.) It's still speculation, however, one way or the other.Gacs (talk) 08:02, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
France is in Europe. I think it's a safe assumption. —Tano (talk) 10:17, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
The page says Europe. I am putting an end to this discussion on Bulbapedia. If you wish to speculate more on the subject, take it to the forums. Subsequent messages will be removed, and blocks may be handed out. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 10:50, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Masuda himself said in a Q&A at E3 that the region is based off of France. KennyMc0294 (talk) 0145, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Region is based in France

Besides the obvious Eiffel Tower reference, I found out that the buildings shown are reminiscent of Paris's type (which was forced as an official style there) and additionally, the place Pikachu is giving the conference is Paris. I'm including the picture for future reference. [1] --M.vit (talk) 22:09, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

There's a section discussing that right above this one. Please join that conversation instead of starting a new section for the same thing. --Pokemaster97 22:15, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Bolero Time

So are we going to completely ignore the fact that the male character is blatantly skating/roller-blading in the trailer? Twenty-six seconds in to the trailer. I mean, this is new game-play right? I'm mentioning it here because I know if I just go ahead and put it in I'll get loads of "well he might be using Surf or something" complaints because for some reason it's only worth adding if an admin happens to like it.

Mewtwo's Awakened Form

A new, Mewtwo-esque Pokémon has been revealed. It needs to be added to this page.

MasterZ (talk) 23:48, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

It should be added on this page, but there isn't much anyone can write about it, as nothing is known except for the fact it's similar to Mewtwo. (Although in my opinion, I think it should just be noted with a photo about the new Pokemon in the Pokemon X and Y page and the Generation VI page). Btw, this new generation is totaly getting me pumped up for October! I know thats not a place to say that, but yea, just wanted to put that out there! LOL Hopefully new information will be available soon! :) PokeNerd 07:07, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Well, it's been added. Now we have to keep an eye out for its name... Maybe in the meantime we could just call it "New Mewtwo". MasterZ (talk) 20:15, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

NO. Absolutely no speculating for now. We need to wait for an official name. Frozen Fennec 20:21, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

While I agree 100% with no speculation, if the image is there, the presence of this new Mewtwo-like Pokemon and its role in the new movie should be mentioned under "New Pokemon", especially since I believe that would make it the first Gen VI Pokemon to appear in the anime. Drake Clawfang (talk) 22:07, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

We should call it ?????????? for now. MewtwoForm2 (talk) 23:04, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

We just need to wait. That's all I have to say regarding its name. Frozen Fennec 23:08, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

I agree, leave it how it is! There is nothing further that anyone can tell at this time! Like I said above, they have only stated it shares similarities to Mewtwo and nothing else at this time! Naming it "??????????" is pointless, having a photo on the Pokemon X and Y page is just fine (how it is now). When more CONCRETE evidence is revealed, then a page should and will be made for the new Pokemon! Till then, lets just be amazed and in awe of this new Pokemon! :) PokeNerd 11:10, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Poko10 (talk) 10:35, 13 April 2013 (UTC)PEOPLE i found a probable corocoro leak! It confirms that the new "mewtwo" IS a new forme. :D

  • Same here, it's probably okay to label its box as "Mewtwo" or "New Mewtwo forme" at this point. Darthrai (talk) 14:25, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
n:CoroCoro reveals last week's unveiled Pokémon to be Forme of Mewtwo --SnorlaxMonster 14:45, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Not to speculate, but considering the movie's called Mewtwo's Awakening, and the form is described as Mewtwo awakening in its new form, I would say it's called "Awakened Form". But we should just wait for more info and add the artwork to the Mewtwo page. MasterZ (talk) 15:57, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

I agree we should probably wait for more information before we start naming things. Poko10 (talk) 00:08, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

When a name comes out, we'll add it, but this talkpage isn't the place to speculate about what it could be. --Pokemaster97 00:22, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Now that its been confirmed as a new forme of Mewtwo, can that be officially added to the page and Mewtwo's page? Or should we wait? Demers-Vachon 01:45, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Why was the new Mewtwo picture removed in the recent update? CrystalHalfBreed (talk) 19:18, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Because its been confirmed to be a new form and not a new Pokémon. --SnorlaxMonster 11:29, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Maybe we should make a new section for revealed forms of pokemon? Or place something in the screen shot section? It seems weird not to have any of this news anywhere on the page. CrystalHalfBreed (talk) 15:51, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Possible Pokémon X and Y Release date

Hi! I'm new at this and I wanna share something to you all.

While I'm searching the web about Pokémon, I found a Wikipedia page titled 2013 in video gaming and I was so excited to see a release date for Pokémon X and Y. This maybe unofficial because I couldn't see any reference about the date. So here's the link: 2013 in video gaming

I hope this will help and also please reply... thank you! --AwesomeDJPokemon (talk) 15:10, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

From our article:
"The paired versions will be released worldwide (except for select countries) on October 2013 and will be available for both retail sale and download."
It was announced in the first trailer I believe. --Spriteit (talk) 15:13, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, basically everyone has known the release date since the games were announced. I wonder where you have been for the past three months.--Den Zen 15:23, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Well, I knew that it was going to be released in October but I was talking about the exact date of the release. --AwesomeDJPokemon (talk) 15:30, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Oh, sorry. I didn't notice that there was '20' in the table. I'm sure it's just an assumption though.--Den Zen 15:52, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for noticing it! I just wanna contribute to you guys this and other information about the game and the franchise. --AwesomeDJPokemon (talk) 16:06, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Wikipedia is only reliable when a source is provided. I tracked down the edit which added the 20, and no source was provided. I have now removed that from the Wikipedia page. Thanks for pointing it out though. --SnorlaxMonster 12:51, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
Just to let you know, the release date that says October 20th is back on that wikipedia page, I even called my game stores in my home town and all of them just have October 2013, no specific date. So whoever added that to wiki page, needs to A) remove it or B) provide a real source to where they got that release date from! PokeNerd 01:19, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
The same user removed it later, so it's fine now. (Also, we really shouldn't use a Bulbapedia talk page to discuss a Wikipedia issue.) --SnorlaxMonster 08:12, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Lots of new Pokemon revealed, new region revealed, slight customization revealed, etc. etc. ETC!

Seriously, this is a news overload. We even have some info about the starters! Somebody, add all this! Especially the new Pokemon! We even have pages for them, now! - unsigned comment from Poko907 (talkcontribs)

Please allow some time, we've been working hard to add and update in a timely manner. The new information will be added ASAP. --Pokemaster97 15:59, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Female player

We don't have ANY pictures of her official art, despite some pictures of her being on the official site. I was wondering why she isn't there, considering all of the new Pokemon, the region, a city, and more being added in. Poko907 (talk) 21:09, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

The pictures on the official site ARE official art. MasterZ (talk) 20:58, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

Downloadable citation?

Where was it (first?) stated that X and Y will be downloadable titles from the eShop? Or is it just a rule now for 3DS games? --Johans (talk) 02:32, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Found it in history: Maybe this needs citation, though. --Johans (talk) 02:48, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation clarification

Shouldn't the article have some kind of introductory disambiguation statement situated somewhere at the article's beginning? Something like:

This article is about the game Pokémon X. For other referrals, see Pokémon X.

Fenyx4 (talk) 20:36, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

There's no need. Searching Pokémon X already takes you to that page. There are no terms that redirect here that could be confused with other items on the disambiguation page. --SnorlaxMonster 13:11, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Character Designs

The news overload continues... According to the Official Pokémon X and Y website, when you choose your gender, you have 3 different character designs to choose from. You can also change your outfit later on. MasterZ (talk) 23:40, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Opposite Player

The PC you don't choose will appear sometime during the storyline, as shown in the trailer. Mystriously, she doesn't have her trademark hat. Maybe it's the same for the male PC, but we can't speculate on pages, so. - unsigned comment from Poko907 (talkcontribs)

When in which video were the male and female players shown in the same screen? -EVsandIVsaurs 17:33, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
Here. We're not adding it, though. We have zero information on the context of the scene and assuming that girl is opposite gender player character is pure speculation at this point. Ataro (talk) 17:44, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

OK. Poko907 (talk) 01:00, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Concept Art? Official?


I found this on IGN's article on new stuff from XY, It said concept art, is this official, if so shouldn't it make its way to the image gallery?

Also sorry, I have no idea how to make it smaller so I just put it as a link. Other wise it would have stretched the page. Yamitora1 (talk) 09:42, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

I don't know if it would be classified as concept art, but it's real. It's used on the article for Lumiose City. --HoennMaster 15:25, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Ken Sugimori

I asked this on Helioptile's page as well, but no one answered, so here it goes: Whenever a new Pokemon is released, as is the case with the 4 new Pokemon recently released, we get official artwork from them. But how do we know definitely that the artwork is always by Sugimori? Of course, it is his art style, but that's not so hard to mimic for a professional... So how do we know? --Phoenixon (talk) 20:52, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

We know that Sugimori always draws the Pokemon, so until we're told otherwise, it's pretty safe to assume. In fact, I'm pretty sure others have drawn artwork for player characters, or other characters, and we've been told that. Of course, it might also say it somewhere, but I never look at the places where the artwork is revealed. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 21:33, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Noivern, Vivillon, and Pokémon-Amie

Don't forget to add them. MasterZ (talk) 18:31, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Korean release date confirmed

It'll be October 12th, 2013 like the rest of the world (that's a first!) ... I'd add it myself, if the page was unlocked. -- Nick15 (talk) 03:06, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Possible player names

From the official website: [5] However, I'm not sure if these are 100% a confirmation, as back when Black and White were coming out Hilbert and Hilda were shown as "Blair" and "Whitley" in some screenshots. Should we start calling XY's players Xavier and Yvonne or play it safe for now? Reign (talk) 07:07, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

It's the same exact thing as Blair and Whitlea. We're playing it safe for the moment. Ataro (talk) 08:14, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Righto then. On a related topic, apparently according to CoroCoro, their Japanese names are Callum (m) and Serena (f).Reign (talk) 00:57, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
Callum and Serena are the names on the official site for the rivals. -EVsandIVsaurs 13:35, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Should we change the names of the "Hero" and "Heroine" to Calem and Serena? - Rockettitan7, 12:36, 16 June 2013 (UTC)


So this was already talked about earlier and the official artwork seems to confirm there is no version in the title. However, Nintendo's E3 briefing calls them X Version and Y Version. --HoennMaster 03:22, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

I think we're going to have to assume that's a mistake for now. We have box art and there is no "Version" on them. On Poké all other games say "Version" while X and Y don't. I think the best source we have is the box art, so until we get box art with "Version" we should just consider the titles to not contain "Version". --SnorlaxMonster 10:21, 14 June 2013 (UTC)


Why has it not been added to the article that this is the first game to have all 7 languages in one cartridge? -EVsandIVsaurs 12:09, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

June CoroCoro Pokemon

I can't help but notice that the 4 pokemon shown in June CoroCoro (Litleo, Flabebe, Scatterbug, and Spewpa) have not been added to the list of X and Y Pokemon. Is that an oversight, or are no more pokemon being added their because of lack of room? --Senoel99 (talk) 17:26, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Characters needs to be updated

Can someone change Hero and Heroine to Calum and Serena (also those pages need to be created, but anyway), and add Shauna, Tierno, Trevor, Alexa, and Viola as well. Thanks. CoolDudeAl (talk) 21:04, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Calum and Serena are the names of the rivals and Calum is your rival when you choose the female character and Serena is your rival when you play as the male character. KennyMc0294 (talk) 01:37, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Calem and Serena are also the default names for the hero and heroine respectively. And yes, there should be Shauna, Tierno, etc. in the characters list. Functioning Blaziken (talk) 13:25, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

The image for spewpa

The image of spewpa is cut from the corocoro leaks, The official artwork is alredy uploaded to BulbaNewsNOW's twitter I think you should replace it, I'll do it but I don't know how, I am new here. - unsigned comment from SuckMyBlood (talkcontribs)

It usually takes some time before the new version of an image is correctly shown on every page the image is on. BlazingFist ☼ 23:32, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Player default names?

Are the player's names Callum and Serena for the male and female respectively? I heard it somewhere, but I'm not sure. Functioning Blaziken (talk) 15:30, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Calem and Serena, but yes, they are the official names. Ataro (talk) 15:53, 16 June 2013 (UTC)


I can't edit the article, but this sentence sounds wonky to me: "The Player Search System (PSS) is a multiplayer feature that always people to connect, battle, and trade with other players through the internet." Eevee-Girl (talk) 06:50, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

I think it's been changed to 'allows' now. Functioning Blaziken (talk) 13:21, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

someone really needs to try and reupload the spewpa art. It sticks out so painfully. 0danmaster0 (talk) 21:40, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

The file was updated with the official version of the artwork almost a month ago over on the Archives, but the thumbnail still hasn't synced for some reason. Regardless, the file itself is up-to-date. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 18:23, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

version exclusives

Hold your horses there, bucko. I'm sure it's being worked on in someone's userspace already. The admins keep track of the news and are well aware of when things are revealed; there's no need to prod at talk pages. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 07:04, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

There are quite a few Pokémon now, surely we don't have to see artwork for them all. Maybe just Froakie, Chespin and Fennekin. This is Mkbw50 signing off 08:52, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Mewtwo's and Crobat's cries have been remastered to sound more like modern Pokémon, and Pikachu's has been replaced with its anime voice. I suspect it hasn't been added to the page because we want to wait to see exactly how thorough the changes are, to avoid spreading misinformation. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 21:26, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

Should the Korean box art be under the Japanese box art?

Since both the Japanese and Korean box art for Pokémon X and Y have two different writing systems (which is the main difference not only between each other but also the box art of the Americas and Europe) should it also be included not only in this article as well as the other games that also have Korean box art? sion8 (talk) 20:38, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

As far as I'm aware, the only box art shown prominently on pages are the Japanese, since it's the original language, and the English language box art. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 21:37, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
Well that is true, which is why I would like the box art of the Korean versions that have been created such as the original Pokémon Gold and Silver as well as all the generation IV and V games that have Korean box art to also be part of the respective games' articles in the same way the Japanese box art is hidden until one clicks for it to be shown. sion8 (talk) 12:14, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
We include the English-language box art because we are an English-language wiki and we include the Japanese box art because it is the original. If we included any others, we would have to include all of them, which would be quite unwieldy (even with a [show]/[hide] box). I'm not opposed to giving each game page a subpage that would show the box art from every international version, but I really think we don't need any more on the main articles.

09/17 Japanese eShop trailer (evening, clothing customization, radical ledge revolution)

The Japanese eShop trailer has revealed the following! I apologize if any of this is old information -- I have trouble keeping everything straight.

  • The trainer's hand is visible when catching a Pokémon. Pokémon don't have any special animations for the capture sequence.
  • Houndour horde.
  • When Mega Evolving a Pokémon, their (possibly updated) stats and health bar will reappear before the process is over. The Mega-evolved Pokémon will be listed under its normal name, with a Mega Stone icon next to its level.
  • Battles and trades through the Player Search System take place in a holographic-style environment.
  • Evening is present in the game. You can see the sun setting behind the Tower of Mastery.
  • Clothing customization seems straightforward. When accessing the clothing customization screen, the player can select "Hats" (Head accessories?), "Tops," "Pants" (bottoms?), "Dresses" (full-body outfits?), "Socks," "Shoes," "Bags" (large accessories?), and "Glasses" (small accessories?). (Note: these are just my guesses based on the menu icons.) The trailer shows the player selecting the "Tops" menu, then browsing through different colors of a "Mini-length Parka." The trailer shows red, pink, green, and another unknown color for the parka. Different clothing styles may result in different visual effects when exiting the customization menu: a "sporty" female trainer is surrounded by brightly-colored lines, while a more "feminine" female trainer is surrounded by pink flowers. Customized clothing shows up on the avatar while they're running around in the overworld.
  • A Team Flare grunt states that Team Flare's objective is only its own members' happiness.
  • When riding a Pokémon (in this case, Skiddo), the player can jump up ledges. We are surely in a new generation.

The trailer also showed some new scenery: a pier lined with small motor boats, a grassy path with a holographic (news?) screen and a pair of Twins (?), and a long, arched hallway with chandeliers opening up onto a courtyard. Arpha (talk) 02:36, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

Fossil Evo pics

Seeing that there has been a few more pictures revealed, I'm guessing you guys are going to stop adding new Pokémon pictures as they are revealed now?

Double negative

In the beginning of page, it says: "The non-Japanese versions are so far the only ones not to have the term Version in its name." Wouldn't it be easier to remove the double negative here, as in: "The Japanese versions are so far the only ones to have the term Version in its name." --Phoenixon (talk) 13:15, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Your rephrasing has a different meaning, and makes it incorrect. The current phrasing was quite misleading though (and also incorrect, since the Korean main series games do not use "Version"), so I have changed it. --SnorlaxMonster 13:46, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Changing the Language

A little late, but since you can LRSTARTSELECT to change the language, yes. Pikachu Bros. (talk) 17:22, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
By soft-resetting? I don't get that.
In any case, yes, deleting your save means deleting your language as well, so you go through the language selection again too. Tiddlywinks (talk) 17:41, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

New Trivia Information?

I think the trivia should note that "X and Y are the first Pokemon games at the start of a generation where you can catch a legendary Pokemon from another generation without an event item." I mean it like- Red/Blue, Gold/Silver, Ruby/Sapphire, Diamond/Pearl, Black/White, X/Y. In X and Y, you can catch Mewtwo and one of the Legendary Birds. PokemonRen (talk) 20:42, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

I don't think that's very notable, it seems to be stretching it a bit anyway. --SuperPikaBros 21:45, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
I don't know. I'm typically skeptical of trivia like this, but looking into it it seems to be valid. Previous-gen legendaries in past generations have only been catchable in third versions, sequels, and remakes, but X and Y break that trend by including earlier legendaries right out of the gate.

I am pretty sure this game has the most rivals and the trivia is lacking is this note worthy? also it is the first 3D pokemon game is this note worthy? first game to have a battle after the champion (AZ)? just trying to kick start the trivia here Pokemonisawesome2 (talk) 04:17, 16 August 2014 (UTC)


Is it really necessary? It's really short and non-descriptive. If it should be on the article, does it really need its own section anyway? --Gabo 2oo (talk) 01:58, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

It's been pretty standard to note the blurb of the game in the article after the plot section. I don't believe it'd really fit anywhere besides where it is now (it'd look kind of stretched in the infobox), however I do think there's no harm in including it. --Pokemaster97 02:02, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

Plot simplification

Should the plot be simplified and shortened, leaving the tedious details to the walkthrough? Thanks! Tea & Scones (talk) 10:18, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
