Nintendo Reveals More Pokemon X & Y Details, Plus Box-Arts

untitleduntitled

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.

    1. Same Gogoat looks great and all. But It would kinda be forcing everyone to have a Gogoat.
      I wanna ride Arcaanine or something like that.

      Hopefully there is 10+ pokemon with the ability.

      1. lol , I don’t know why it posted up here , I’m sure I was trying to post below… ah well.

        Pokemon Y boxart >>>>> Pokemon X boxart.

      2. I am getting Y…
        Well… I am getting both but I will play Y.
        I will let my brother play my X version.

    1. I think they will be more but not all has i think he will be used in gameplay like when you had to change diffrent bikes to get to diffrent areas of the enviroment.

    2. I think they’ll make every pokemon naturally capable to carry people a mount (Like most pokemon capable of swimming and carrying a person being able to surf), or at least the other bovine and equine ones, like Bouffalant and Rapidash.
      I don’t really like Gogoat, I prefer Bouffalant if I’m gonna have a mount.

      1. I thought it was a bad draw of the house. I can see the roof and the side wall but nice try though! Is that a sidewalk at the bottom there?

  2. This is the best morning like ever. 5 more days until Masuda is on pokemon smash, I wonder if he will announce anything new or just discucss this.

  3. Please stop tempting me Nintendo. I’m trying very hard to kick the Pokemon habit, but you’re pulling me back in.

    1. Just give up man. I’ve been trying to since soul silver and I’ve ended up getting them day one.

      1. Nah I think it is more like a hype things. I was disappointed with Black and White version. So I didn’t get Black and White 2.

      2. Oh… I was very pleased with black.
        It was bad but it was so good.
        You were able to use TM as often as you liked.
        Items such as PP Max were very easy to obtain.
        But the removed the berries and the world map was really bad.
        Back ground music was not the best (But I liked them… But older version had much better BGM)
        But it was very easy to train in black and white.
        It was a very bad game but it was sooo good at the same time.

        Black 2 however was 10000 times better.

  4. so fucking getting pkm y. I hope the event legends kick ass this time around cause black and white had dismal event legends.

  5. Alright, great covers! I’m pretty sure that I’ll be buying Y. I prefer the legendary and the boxart’s a bit more intense. Of course….I may get both B)

  6. lol
    You’ll be able to get new outfits and accessories for your trainer, as said on the website. Here’s proof:
    “At certain points you’ll be able to get new outfits and accessories for your Trainer!”

    1. Might as well get both. Or if you have a friend with a 3DS, ask him what version he’s getting and get the other one so you can trade.

      1. definitely not getting both, lol

        i know people getting both versions, i’m not worried about that really :x

  7. Xerneas is still giving me trouble… its gotta be Grass or Ground… right? Yveltal is awesome and I’m pretty sure its Dark/Flying.

  8. Riding a goat around?

    I can just already see the fan-art now. -checks deviantART-

    Artists already on it now I can see.
