Nintendo of America has shared more details on Pokemon X & Y for the Nintendo 3DS. The game takes place in a new region called Kalos, where players will encounter beautiful forests, thriving cities, and many never-before-seen Pokemon.
The central city in Kalos is Lumiose City, which is described by Nintendo as a metropolis featuring a tower that is set to become an iconic structure in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. The game also adds to the more than 640 Pokemon that have been encountered in previous games. We posted the latest trailer for the game which can be viewed, here. Anyway, here’s some more information on the Pokemon which you will encounter in Pokemon X & Y.
- The cowardly Pokémon Helioptile, a Normal- and Electric-type Pokémon, can generate enough electricity through sunbathing to power machinery. But wise Trainers won’t be deterred by Helioptile’s lack of bravery. It knows Parabolic Charge, a brand-new move where Helioptile attacks everything around it. Helioptile’s HP is restored by half the damage taken by those hit.
- Fletchling, a Normal- and Flying-type Pokémon, sings with a beautiful chirp that is sure to delight any Trainer. Although it is known to be very friendly, Fletchling will suddenly unleash relentless attacks once it’s in battle. For example, when it uses its Fire-type move Flame Charge in battle, in addition to doing damage, Fletchling’s Speed increases every time.
- With a leaf always in its mouth and an intimidating glare that is rarely effective, Fighting-type Pokémon Pancham shows its playful side when it lets out a little smile when its head is pat. Pancham can learn a brand-new move, Parting Shot, which not only lowers an opponent’s Attack and Special Attack, but also allows Pancham to switch out for another Pokémon in a Trainer’s party during battle.
- A new method of transportation—riding the brand-new Pokémon, Gogoat. This large Grass-type Pokémon is a reliable way to travel certain parts of Lumiose City. In battle, it can use Horn Leech to recover HP equal to half the damage dealt by this move.
