During Nintendo’s Developer Roundtable at E3 on Tuesday, Game Freak Director Junichi Masuda revealed a new communication feature debuting in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. The Player Sear System or PSS allows players to connect, battle and trade with other players locally or globally. Also debuting in the upcoming games is the Pokémon-Amie, which is a new way for players to bond with their Pokémon and is demonstrated in the above trailer. Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be released worldwide on October 12th, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. Read more information on the PSS below:
The PSS allows players to connect, battle, and trade with other players nearby and around the world. The PSS makes it easy to find other people playing Pokémon X or Pokémon Y near you or even on the other side of the world. When the new communication feature is on, the PSS alerts players when someone nearby is playing Pokémon X or Pokémon Y and gives you the option to battle or trade with them wirelessly. Players with a wireless Internet connection can also connect with Pokémon X and Pokémon Y players anywhere in the world via the PSS, making it easy to battle or trade with others close by or thousands of miles away.
