Pokémon X & Y Discussion Introduction On January 8th, 2013, Nintendo announced the sixth generation of Pokémon games: Pokémon X version and Pokémon Y version. X and Y mark Game Freak's first main-series entrance onto Nintendo's 3DS. Unlike previous Pokémon games that experienced a several month gap between Japanese and international release, Pokémon X version and Pokémon Y version will be released globally on October 12, 2013. X and Y promise to introduce a multitude of new Pokémon, as well as numerous evolutions of past-generation Pokémon. With new vistas to explore, new enemies to encounter, and new Pokémon to meet, it has never been a better time to jump into the world of Pokémon and catch 'em all! New Pokémon As with any new entry into the main series of Pokémon games, X and Y will introduce a huge number of new Pokémon and evolutions of past generation Pokémon. Below, you will find details about each of the currently revealed sixth generation Pokémon. Chespin [Starter, Grass] Quilladin [Chespin evo, Grass] Fennekin [Starter, Fire] Braixen [Fennekin evo, Fire] Froakie [Starter, Water] Frogadier [Froakie evo, Water] Sylveon [Eevee evolution, Fairy, Cute Charm] - has high Special Attack, ~95 HP, learns Moonblast Pancham [Fighting] - learns Parting Remark (lowers opponent's defenses) Pangoro [Pancham evolution, Fighting/Dark, Iron Fist] Fletchling [Normal/Flying] Talonflame [Fletchling evolution, Fire/Flying] Skiddo [Grass] Gogoat [Skiddo evolution, Grass] Helioptile [Electric/Normal, Dry Skin] Scatterbug [Bug] Spewpa [Scatterbug evolution, Bug] Vivillon [Spewpa evolution, Bug/Flying] Noivern [Dragon/Flying] Clauncher [Water] Skrelp [Poison/Water] Litleo [Fire/Normal, Unnerve] Flabébé [Fairy] Honedge [Ghost/Steel, No Guard] Inkay [Dark/Psychic, Contrary/Suction Cups] Malamar [Inkay evolution, Dark/Psychic, Contrary/Suction Cups] - learns Topsy Turvy (reverses stat changes of target) Swirlix [Fairy, Sweet Veil] Spritzee [Fairy] Bunnelby [Normal, Pick Up/Cheek Pouch] Dedenne [Electric/Fairy, Pickup/Cheek Pouch] Tyrunt [Fossil, Rock/Dragon, Strong Jaw] Amaura [Fossil, Rock/Ice, Refridgerate] Furfrou [Normal] - apperance can be customized Meowstic [Psychic, Keen Eye/Infiltrator] - gender determines appearance/movepool Xerneas [Fairy] - learns Ice Beam Yveltal [Dark/Flying] - learns Hyper Beam New Type [Fairy!] For the first time since the release of Pokémon Gold version and Pokémon Silver version, a new type has been introduced to the main-series games. The eighteenth type is none other than Fairy. Little is known about the Fairy type so far aside from its ability to hit Dragon-type Pokémon for super-effective damage. In addition, a few Pokémon's types have been retconned. It is likely that Fairy hits Dark for super effective damage. Gardevoir [Psychic/Fairy] Marill [Water/Fairy] Jigglypuff [Normal/Fairy] Mawile [Steel/Fairy] Fairy Wind - low base power move Moonblast - high base power move Draining Kiss - 60 base power / recovers HP equal to damage dealt Mega-Evolutions With the help of new items, some Pokémon will "mega-evolve" into Pokémon with new stats, abilities, and types. You are able to select the option to "mega-evolve" at any point from the attack-selection screen. This action does not take up the Pokémon's turn and it can select an attack. Venusaur [Thick Fat] Charizard [Drought] Blastoise [Mega Launcher - boosts pulse attacks] Kanghaskan [Parental Bonding: attacks twice] Mewtwo-Y [Insomnia] Mewtwo-X [Psychic/Fighting, Steadfast] Ampharos [Electric/Dragon, Mold Breaker] Blaziken [Speed Boost] Mawile [Steel/Fairy, Huge Power] Absol [Magic Bounce] Lucario [Adaptability] Garchomp [Sand Force] For a more detailed look at Pokémon X and Pokémon Y (including new rivals, Pokémon Amie, etc.), check out the main website.
