They will be released internationally this year in October.

 This is so sex. The female main character design is the best in series.funsohng
Wierdly enough, these games are named after sex chromosomes. :shock:

Big fan of the 3D gameplay as well as the fire starter. I was hoping for a sequel to Pokemon Snap, but this will do.

Wow! Those battle visuals look quite nice if I say so myself.... Like unbelieveably good. are they seriously going to have like 700 3d animated character models that look that good?

Words can't even describe how hyped I am! :shock::D

I can't wait to see how they utilize Streetpass and Spotpass in this. As much as I loved the Black and White titles, the local connection features they forced into that were just silly.

I have mixed reactions...

The Good: LOVE the new 3D artstyIe. Looks like a mixture of Dragon Quest IX (with the heavy cel shading) and Final Fantasy 4 Heroes of light. (With the kinda super deformed characters.)

the Bad: I hope they change more than just the 2d graphics. Personally, I am feeling burnt out on Pokemon. I recieved White 2 for Christmas and having another full fledged Pokemon game literally a year later seems far too redundant to me. Not to mention we literally just had a new generation two years ago. I hope this doesn't become a trend... I like a little downtime to really enjoy each game in its entirety before moving on to the next.

Looks great. The games will definitely have a different feel than the other games with the switch; I hope it isn't too drastic of a change. Can't wait for October to come now. :D

I take back everything I said about a 3D game loosing the charm of the 2D titles. THe artstyle Gamefreak used is amazing. I love the Cell shading and it retains the charm of the sprites in a certain way. I'm fully on board with this game now. 2013 is now finally shaping up the 3DS to what I always wanted it to be; I finally have some amazing games to buy too.

Animal Crossing

Fire Emblem

Pokemon

I've never been this enthused about this system. Plus the starters and legendary pokemon look better than Gen V. I'm hoping they don't make it as linear as Gen V. Cannot wait for gen VI!

Also the Biology major in me loves the XY naming.

It's 3 year for Japan, and that's only a year early from the normal 4 year cycle.

While it's ridiculous that they're pumping out another gen so soon (mainly because they just had to rush Black and White onto the DS...), I am beyond excited for this. This is exactly the kind of Pokemon game I've been looking forward to for a long time!!

Fennekin used Psychic in one video so it appears that all of them might have a second type, Chespin will probably be Grass/Fighting, Fennekin will probably be Fire/Psychic, and Froakie is probably Water/Dark.

They have different Pokemon that are only found in 1 version of the game so that you have to have a friend or purchase both games so you can get all the Pokemon.

I am really disappointed that they showed a battle of the water starter beating up a magikarp. On behalf of magikarps everywhere, this sort of negative stereotype of our great species limits the job opportunities and fundamental liberties that should be granted equally to all pokemon throughout the world.

3D and more importantly, actually fun to watch attack animations (hopefully not just for a few attacks) make this way more interesting than past ones. I will keep an eye on this to see if it will be my return to pokemon.

they have 2 different versions to encourage cooperative play and trading with others. Anyways, im still amazed at how stupid some ppl are that ask why its not being made for the regular DS. Seriously, that thing is OUTDATED. It's time to take a step forward and not another step back. It was bound to happen and Nintendo isn't going to cater to you who are not going out of their way to finally purchase a 3DS. If you can't save or make 200$ USD in 9 months, that would be the person's fault.

Are you kidding me? Do you see those screens?

The game is pure crap with nothing that can't be done on the DS, the only thing is going to be gimmicky 3D that no one will use.

This is a complete fail if the game comes out looking like this.

I don't care about the graphics the art style is nice and makes the pokemon 3D models look good without making them bland like 3D models from other 3D pokemon games. I'm more interested in the new pokemon and region than the graphics. I wouldn't even care if the game was still in 2D to be honest.

How else would they have done it without completely redoing the entire franchise?

Clearly, you must have the most experience in Game Development here.

best year in gaming, ever!! Im dead serious as well. Along with everything else coming out... this is probably my favourite game which is coming out this year.. ive been WAITING for a DECADE for a full 3d pokemon game....and this is the best news possible. The graphics seem a bit underwhelming though..i mean that wont really bother me as i'll love it either way...but i was expecting something better, considering how powerful the 3ds is.

They could have & should have done better with visuals, Im sure they can have new Pokemons, new regions & a much better visuals (then what had been shown). We have seen what 3DS is capable off..expected better from it.

The only thing bothering me about XY is how some areas look too empty and flat.

For example:

route.jpg

and

desert.jpg

It may be part of GameFreak's devious plan of leaving room for improvement for future games. Just look at how much the visuals were improved from Diamond and Pearl to Black and White.

I agree completely my good man.
