Pokemon X and Y is going to land with a bang in West this coming October. Since adapting to 3D games console 3DS, the graphics are substantially better than ever! But what else does the new duo have to offer?
Firstly the packaging art is, without a doubt, the best it has been so far, with more detail than the recent Pokemon Black and White 2. The two legendary Pokemon featured are Xerneas and Yveltal (as always, the names are a mouthful).Their types are unknown, but they are said to be based on a Chital deer and a Wyvern.
Next are the new additions to the pokemon. First is Gogoat, a grass type pokemon. In the trailer you can see the trainer riding it! This has been a must since Pokemon:The First Movie, where trainers were seen riding to Mew Two Island on Gyarados’ Lapras and Starmies. When I first used the move Surf on game, I expected the pokemon to be whichever I selected, yet it always turned out to be a Lapras. Now there’s a pokemon you can ride through the streets of the new region, Kalos. Exciting stuff!
Since the beginning, Pokemon games have always started with a grass-type, a water-type and a fire-type, (with the exception of Pokemon Yellow), which doesn’t disappoint here. You have Chespin, Froakie and Fennekin. On top of these, you have three new pokemon that appear in the game: Pancham, a fighting type (I can hear all the girls say “Awww! A baby panda!”), Fletchling, a normal/ flying type and Helioptile, an electric type. There is also new evolution to Eevee – Sylveon!
Sylveon looks quite different from the other evolutions, the eyes are especially…weird, almost creepy looking. Still, I can’t wait to see how much of a punch it can pack! My favourite for a while has been Espeon, it looks beautiful and can do real damage.
Finally, there is going to be an upgrade to a Pokemon – something that has never been done before. Mewtwo in an Awakened form! This was seen in the Japanese trailer for the movie, Extremespeed Genesect: Mewtwo Awakens! This movie is to be release in Japan on July 13th ! In other parts of the world it has yet to be announced.
The trailers to the game and the movie look awesome! I really cannot wait to get back into the pokemon world!
