Game Freak Announces Sky Battles And Horde Encounters For Pokémon X And Pokémon Y

Game Freak has announced a new type of Pokémon battle debuting in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Sky Battles will be featured in the upcoming games. Select Pokémon Trainers that players encounter will challenge them to battles that take place above ground. Players can only participate in Sky Battles if they have certain Pokémon in their party that can fly. According to Game Freak, the “Sky Battle is a visually stunning battle scenario and an exciting new addition to Pokémon video games.”

Game Freak has also announced Horde Encounters, where the player wields only a single Pokémon while battling against multiple wild Pokémon that attack simultaneously. Game Freak says, “Players will need to ensure their Pokémon has moves that can attack multiple Pokémon at once or they may quickly find themselves on the losing end of the battle.”

Watch the above trailer to witness the new type of battle and encounter. Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will launch worldwide on October 12th, exclusively for Nintendo 3DS.



    1. Uhh hello! that is gonna be scary as shttt! i mean like batting 5 pokemans at 1 times wen i can oly use my magicrap during my magicrap only run because hes a desent pokemans and because i love it,


      1. dude like serious ur fucking annoying. Uhh hello! Uhh hello! Uhh hello! Uhh hello! Uhh hello! Uhh hello! Uhh hello! Uhh hello! Uhh hello! Uhh hello! Uhh hello! and always talking about your mother but you know what we dont give a fuck about your mum because shes a slut. and btw ive seen your youtube channel your just a little wanker who just plays minecraft just be fucking normal or just fuck off.(sorry guys i had to put up with this fucker for a long time now.)


      2. If you want freinds then you better learn to shut the fuck up no wonder why everthing runs away from you and we dont give a shit about your mother just stfu and stop being a sad troll.


      3. this guy is fucking sick you find yours moms tits attractive you fucking inbreed piece of shit . your not even worth saying the name jesus or say the word bible.


      4. who are you like seriously? You come out of fucking nowhere, telling everyone your shitty opinion which no one give shits about and your always talking bout “your mother”. Please stop talking bout her and leave or I’ll come to your house and murder you both slow and painful


    1. Except you can only use Pokemon with levitate or “Flying” as their typing. I bet they’ll add things like gusts of wind that affect the turnout of the battle and stuff. 💋


      1. That’s definitely a movie, I’m waiting for the sequel! I hear rumors that it might come to cinemas early 2014! :O


  1. Don Mattrick has just announced that if you don’t want an xbox that is always online, people can always buy an xbox360. Really microsoft lol. Two Next generation Consoles the Wii U and PS4 can be played offline anytime :).


      1. Bitch plase, PS Plus is a RIPOFF. It’s like paying for Xbox LAG, but hey. PS Plus for PS3 was OPTIONAL. I had to buy a PS3 3 years ago because PSN was FREE. SONY didn’t have to force us to get PS Plus for PS3 which was a good thing because PS Plus was a WASTE OF MONEY! I stopped playing online multiplayer back in July because I don’t have time to play it anymore. I still have my PS3 but I don’t play it that much anymore. I made a mistake buying a 360 but I gladly sold it. But, still…… I own a Wii and a PS3. I’m not going to buy a Wii U or PS4 but I’m still NOT going to buy Xbox One. I haven’t bought a PS3 game since December 2010 because NONE of today’s games interest me…… I heard there’s ALOT of people BOYCOTTING the Xbox One already and jumping ship to the PS4. Who still has PS3? Are you going to buy PS4? No next-gen for me! I’m going straight! No I don’t buy PC games anymore because you CAN’T sell PC games at all due to CD keys. You see, I’m a retro gamer now. Now I’m stuck to playing older games pre-2002.


  2. I like this, it makes some pokemon harder to catch if you don’t have a flying type…

    I also laughed at the Wii Fit Trainer character for Smash Brothers…

    She looks as if she could be Tabuu’s Wife…


      1. robots are ment for slaves, rob was a slave for the nes. its just a matter of time before we kill you again from you betraying mankind!!!!!

        you remember last time, it will happen again if you pull that shit.


  3. Ok it’s official, I’m getting X or Y. I’ve been waiting for Sky battles for years. Pidgeot and Braviary would look great in those.


  4. Pokemon X and Y is basically going to be the greatest Main Series Pokemon game ever to be created. Good job Game Freak! You are living up to expectations and then some! 💋
