During today’s Nintendo Direct (or Pokemon Direct, as it has been called) Pokemon versions X and Y were announced along with a trailer, release date, and three all new starter Pokemon. Pokemon X and Y will hit store shelves worldwide on October 13 for the 3DS, making these the first 3D entries in the main series (and also the first games that aren’t named after a color).
The trailer is short, but it actually reveals a lot of information. The biggest revelation is the three new starter Pokemon: the grass-type Chespin, the fire-type Fennekin, and the water-type Froakie (and yes, these are the English names). Full 3D environments were also shown, along with (brace yourself) two new legendary Pokemon who seem to be the mascots for X and Y. They weren’t named, but the legendary for X appears to be a deer with massive horns and the legendary for Y looks like a giant dragon-bird hybrid.
No other information has been released, but with only 10 months before launch date, new announcements are bound to pop up. In the mean time, enjoy the trailer for yourself, which you can find below.
