Pokemon X and Pokemon Y will launch for the 3DS on October 12 worldwide, Nintendo announced today as part of its latest Nintendo Direct presentation.

The game will feature a mix of Pokemon old and new. Starting Pokemon for the game are toad Froakie, fiery deer Fennekin, and grass monster Chespin.

Pokemon X and Y will be the first mainline Pokemon games made for the 3DS, although a series of spin-offs are already available on the device.

Well even though Fairy types wouldn't not have been my first choice for a new type at the roundtable discussion atleast Dragons types have something else to be afriad of now. This should really put an end to that speed trolling Garchomp once and for all! *Sends out Wigglytuff* GET HIM!

The 3D in-game (not effects) battlefield and Pokemon look nice . Otherwise, it looks like barely an improvement. The attacks still look unimpressive, the free roam seems still too restrictive (even 3D sections are straightforward) and similar, and the new pokemon so far look like slightly altered re-skins of older Pokemon (the legendary one looks much too similar to Arceus for example).

I think that this game is gonna be awesome. I like the new features, the new type blew my mind and we finally have a game in actual 3D on the 3DS. If they can make this work, then I will not care about any mistake they made in the past. I am ready for this game to come out in October

Guess it is OK. But I think I may still pass on the game. It kind of needs to reinvent itself a little, would be nice if became an action RPG, besice the Mystery Dungeon and the Wind-Up toy pokemon games...

I liked pokemon black/white/2 when i played them. X and Y doesn't really appeal to me, not sure why though but i'm not excited for it... I'll probably give it a little go since my friend might get it.

Nintendo are so far behind Sony and Microsoft, that they are still producing Pokemon, which has left the Building quicker then Elvis did all those years ago......

as if the pokemon series wasnt getting gayer and gayer for every new release, this is just rediculous. red/blue gold/silver are the only good ones before it got old and repetitive.

@Kevin Ticehurst  Your attempt at humor has failed horribly and you do not know the proper use of the ellipsis.

@Kevin Ticehurst uh no it hasn't do your research. Pokemon has actually become MORE popular throughout the years. If the franchise wasnt popular then why are they releasing this game on the same date from every country. Pokemon has never left the building they just upgraded to a much better one.

@QtrArt While I think the first Pokemon movie was the best, watching them is still a guilty pleasure of mine. =P

@Joshua Lopez yellow version is the best pokemon game. This is not the same pokemon that you played a decade ago. There are plenty of new features that will make the game much more innovative than its predecessor.

@Josh Alexander Yeah. Companies make things that consumers buy lots of. Isn't that a crazy concept?

@Josh Alexander why wouldn't they?

@unikat its not a typo...why would you have fiery types when you already have fire? fire pretty much covers the whole spectrum

@Andrew Scott Runyon because they have light and dark

@MooncalfReviews Well, let's take a look at what we know about it, it's super effective against dragons. Now, where do we hear of dragons most, fairy tales. So it would only make sense if they implemented fairy pokemon to counter the over powered dragon type.

@SirNormanislost So is toad new type of pokemon too? It's just fire type, but writer of article wanted it to sound different.

@JOTLD It only makes sense if you watch too much anime. "Fairy" is not an element or a type or a force of nature. I thought "dragon type" was dumb, but this is worse.

@unikat @SirNormanislost Most people would associate toads with frogs, and most people that have had a public education would associate frogs with water.

@MooncalfReviews @JOTLD Could of called it light type. I mean wtf, dark without light? We don't need a fairy, we love dragons; Digimon didn't have"Fairy" type.
