Pokemon X and Y's new Pokemon

Updated with the new and old Pokemon who will appear in the game

Fletchling

Click to view larger image
Fletchling is a Normal and Flying-type Pokemon who sings with a beautiful chirp. Although it is known to be very friendly, Fletchling will suddenly unleash relentless attacks once it's in battle. For example, when it uses its Fire-type move Flame Charge in battle, in addition to doing damage, Fletchling's Speed increases every time.

Height: 1.0m

Weight: 3.7 lbs

Gogoat

Gogoat is a Grass-type Pokemon that's so big it can carry humans on its back to Lumiose City. It's very calm, and can form a strong bond with its Trainer's feelings when its Trainer grabs onto its horns.

In battle, it can use Horn Leech to recover HP equal to half the damage dealt by this move.

Height: 5.7m

Weight: 200.6 lbs

Helioptile

Click to view larger image
This Normal and Electric-type Pokemon charges itself by bathing in the light of the sun, providing it with enough energy that it doesn't need to eat! It knows Parabolic Charge, a brand-new move where Helioptile attacks everything around it. Helioptile's HP is restored by half the damage taken by those hit.

Height: 1.08m

Weight: 13.2 lbs

Pancham

Click to view larger image
With its leaf always sticking out of its mouth, this Fighting-type Pokemon tries to intimidate its opponents by glaring at them intensely (although this is rarely successful). However, it also lets out a little smile when its head is pat. Pancham can learn a brand-new move, Parting Shot, which not only lowers an opponent's Attack and Special Attack, but also allows Pancham to switch out for another Pokemon in a Trainer's party during battle.

Height: 2.0m

Weight: 17.6 lbs

    I will choose Fennekin and i like fire starters.

  2. oOFreddieHillOo Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 15:38

    I'm pretty sure that the X and Y don't relate to DNA/Gender

    I think it refers to the X Y Z axis (Dimensions)

    The Legendary X Pokemon is a stag - The X axis measures distance, so the stag will travel across land
    The Legendary Y Pokemon is a bird/dragon - The Y axis measures height, so the bird will fly up high etc

    The third game will most likely be Z because X Y Z represent three dimensions - which would make perfect sense as this is the first 3D pokemon installment! :D

  3. shadowlugia101 Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 15:50

    for now i'm going to get chespin, but it might change depending on their evolutions

  4. lol95 Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 15:53

    I think it's a bit early to confirm that the featured previous gen Pokemon in the announcement are going to be in the games. All three starters look good, their designs are so brilliant that I've yet to choose a favourite although Chespin has sparked my interest just because it's so different. The legendaries look awesome as well, I can safely say that I'm more hyped for this generation than I was for V.

  5. DynamicPunch202 Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 15:59

    Both Legendarys look fantastic but I think I'll go for the Bird/Dragon/Prize claw one. I have no idea what starter I want, and I will have to decide based on there evolutions.

  6. Slinkington Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 16:06

    Absolutely fantastic announcement. I honestly didn't think we'd be hearing about the next generation of Pokemon games - it just didn't seem like enough time had passed in order for them to develop it, but here it is!

    The new 3D world enhances the visuals so much, it's a shame to see the pixel art gone, but they've managed to capture the same style perfectly. Really looking forward to this!

  7. theycallmejack Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 16:09

    Everyone's getting jazzed over Fennekin but to me it just looks like differently coloured Zorua on a weight loss programme. I want Chespin! Then again, I'm also kind of interested in Froakie... so much choice! Depends on how the final evolutions look... As for X and Y, I prefer Y, but only marginally... If these designs are a sign of things to come then I'm very very excited to see some of the new Pokemon! Great work from GameFreak!

    first thoughts:

    5 minutes in: come on start the true broadcast already!
    7 minutes in: NOOOO i wanted Emerald 2!
    8 minutes in: that's a daft name sounds like XY Chromosomes?
    9 minutes in: those starters look incredibly daft apart from foxy loxy
    10 minutes in: them graphics look like they prototypes on DS first - hope it dont stick
    10.5 mintues in: at least the Legendries look emerald like! :)
    after: i wantz di preaciouzzz

  9. JamieRIOT Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 16:30

    Usually I always prefer the water-types, but the fire one looks much better this time around.

  10. ThePokekid78 Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 16:32

    THE. STARTERS. ARE. HORRIBLE.

    I'm sorry, but...here we have our proof that the designs are getting worse.

    When I saw the Gen 5 starters I hated them. I've kinda gotten over them but they were still the worst starters...until now.

    The fox thing I can deal with. It's not too bad. But the other two?! MY GOD do hurt to look at....

    The problem I have is that they look fake. You know when someone creates a Pokemon, goes 'OMG NEW POKEMON' and it obviously doesn't look legit? That's the way these look to me. The peanut thing just makes you want to punch it, and the frog, 'Froakie'?! IT'S HORRID.

    ...That said the legendaries are pretty cool. However, the dragon being the obvious mascot for Y is obvious. Noticed the shape of the thing? IT'S A Y SHAPE -_-

    Shame the starters suck though :L

  12. Waldy565 Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 16:42

    @lol95 makes a good point, my man! I just LOST my friggin post, so I will try to type it again. At the start of the vid (youtube) we see that the character models are very reminiscent of Colosseum/Gale of Darkness. While these games were average (I'm sure X and Y won't, no, they'll be fantastic!) it does detract a little from the charm of the games. I am very much in favour of the 3D world however, and I hope that the region is very vast with the added power of the 3DS. There looks to be some real-life interaction, with a tower at 0:27 which looks similar to the Blackpool/Eiffel Tower. At 0:29 there is a statue that to me resembles Palkia in it's look, and what is it with Pokemon and bridges! I hope the battle system stays as it is, and it's not just a tech demo, as it looks very fluent and unique, even for Pokemon! It is also nice to see a throwback to the older gen Pokemon, I detested how B/W locked you away from Pokemon who had grown on you, on you knew which Pokemon worked with you and which did not. 1:00, I hope you don't find Pokemon like this, but somehow I don't think it is going to be this way. 1:02, this gym looks interesting, I believe it to be Electric, as it looks similar to Elesa's and Lt Surge's. 1:06, this could be a puzzle of a dungeon or a puzzle of the Bug type gym (2 types confirmed if I am right,). Thridly, a fire-type dungeon, this amy be the lair to a legendary or just another dungeon. We are then showed the legendaries... Both look amazing! My previosu post had a bit more content, but seeming as ONM locked me out and I lost it, I will copy this and paste it, in case when I press submit I lose this too!

  13. Alina Munir Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 17:04

    Im DEFINITELY getting Fennekin!!! :P
    Im also crazy about the new stag-like Pokemon that has shiny antlers! :lol:

    But why another game announced now; B/W 2 have only just come out! I still need Ł15.75 before I can buy Black 2... :(
    Which new legendary do you guys like: the stag or the bird! It'll be an interesting debate...

  14. Bulbasaur483 Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 17:05

    I think that with the X and Y they're refering to DNA.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MYbmIxzer8 1:23 Look at the logos. That rainbow-colored thing looks like DNA.
    It probably is DNA unless they they release Pokemon Z which would be the third dimension (depth)... or maybe Pokemon have the Z chromosome, who knows... XD

  15. Smyrlie Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 17:05

    The legendaries look AMAZING. I don't know how I'm going to pick one, I might even end up getting both. As for the starters, fenniken looks the best, but I always pick the water type so froakie, you're mine! :mrgreen: I like how he looks but I'm not a fan of the name. I'm not sure how I feel about chespin, he's certainly different. I want these games sooo much now.

  16. Apple_Pie Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 17:10

    I actually think that Chespin looks like a brown Oshawott with a funky hat on! Froakie is freaky and Fennekin looks awesome, sort of like vulpix, hopefully the evolution will be as epic as Ninetails!

    I think Chespin and Froakie look weird. Fennekin is the only decent-looking one... :roll:
    As for me, I could NEVER manage to get both games as I spend most of my money on sweets/chocolates/Coca-Cola etc. :oops:
    I'm not sure how I feel about these X and Y games, I prefer more "classical" Pokemon, and if the rumours are true and you CAN change the DNA around, I don't want the game. :twisted:
    Plus I still want Pokemon Black 2. :mrgreen:

  18. Layton link Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 17:21

    well....after that horrible time with the fire pokemon tepig..looks like iam back with water pokemon..
    oh Froakie..how amazing you look..

  19. shy guy 64 Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 17:24

    i LOVE them

    i think i'll go for the grass starter and the version with the epic stag

  20. hunter metroid Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 17:39

    im stuck between the grass and fire starter as the one to get when the games come out as of which game to get i dont know its 50-50 right now

  21. koopa_kicker Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 17:54

    Hey, at least the chance of having yet another Fire/Fighting starter are pretty slim, and I like the idea K-tet had with Fire/Physic,Water/Fighting and Grass/Dark starters for the usual super effectiveness chain to be countered by an opposing chain of typing.

    I really, really hope Game Freak decide to go really, really balisitc on the typing combinations this time around. Fire combined with Water or Ice would be pretty sweet, though I have some of my own ideas that include a Poison/Steel type with lethal poison tipped blades, a Ghost/Steel typed possessed armour Pokemon that would be quite bulky and immune to FIghting types (Ghost covers the Steel weakness) and a Ghost/Grass type based off the real life Ghost Plant http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monotropa_uniflora. Unqiue, very rare plant, but awesome plant that needs no light (screw chlorophyll), able of living in completely darkness and can sap the live out of other living things(AKA like a ghost), but thankfully humans aren't one of it's main food sources. Even funnier is the fact that even more rarely, this plant is found red as opposed to pale pink/white (lol-shininess would actually be better and make more sense here compared to the likes of Garchomp with barely any change or randomly green Espeon!)

    Anyway...Gen 6 on 3DS with new Pokemon and Region...Can't---well gonna have to wait! :)

  22. Bexie Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 17:55

    But why another game announced now; B/W 2 have only just come out!

    It came out like 3 months ago. That's not 'only just'.

  23. redeye Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 18:11

    I always take fire and grass as starter mon, I find water not so great :twisted:

  24. Riverlution Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 18:12

    I am sooo hyped! I was so hoping for a Snap 2 release as I thought there was no way this would be announced yet... but this is even better.

    Oh, and the starters look pretty cool. Way better than the last three!

  25. koopa_kicker Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 18:18

    But why another game announced now; B/W 2 have only just come out!

    It came out like 3 months ago. That's not 'only just'.

    Shows that Game Freak aren't just sitting down celebrating the success from the last games they made and are ploughing back into making more main Pokemon games. Plus these are for the 3DS, which will be about 2.5 years old by the time October comes round. If you're one of those who got the 3DS fairly early in 2011, it may feel like it has taken ages for this moment to arrive, and leaving the announcement later (After February) could get some annoyed by a 3 year wait with no infomation main game Pokemon 3DS-wise.

  26. thenintendoer Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 18:30

    for the first time ever id proabbly choose the fire pokemon to start with

  27. kirlia trainer Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 19:04

    I will choose Fennekin.

    I think it will be alright with a mix of new and old Pokémon in the new Pokédex. I kind og missed the old Pokémon through Black and White gameplay, but they did a comback in BW2. Can't wait to get my copy of Pokémon X & Y. :)

  28. pikachu101 Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 19:26

    Chespin looks ideal for me, but if its evolution's are a disapointment then i will have to reconsider, i was disapointed with samurott as a though Oshawott and dewott where good but Samurott didn't fit in

  29. Zuhzoo Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 19:31

    I am going for Fennekin, looks great and Fennec foxes are awesome! I would kind of like interesting secondary types for the starters... obviously no more fire/fighting though. Will have to see how the evolutions look, but I think it's pretty safe to say I am going for fire this time! :D

  30. koopa_kicker Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 19:57

    Not really sure what I'll choose, but will have to see what typing for each and their evolutions get: at the mo' I'm thinking Chespin simply because I've seen frog and fox Pokemon before.There will probally be some leakage of information at some point but this time my mate won't be sat reading through Serebii each day, all day as usual when the games come out in Japan to know essentially the whole story/game/etc before he even gets it, because I glad to see an single international release.

  31. MummifiedCoconut Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 19:59

    I would choose Fennekin unless it turns out to be Fire/Fighting which in that case I'll pick Froakie and hunt down whoever decided to make another Fire/Fighting type to beat them up and set fire to them. :evil: Harsh I know but they need to learn that constantly making Fire/Fighting starters sucks. Mwhahahaha :twisted:

    *takes anti-psychotic medication*

  32. AquaMisty Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 20:11

    Froakie is cute!!But i always pick water starters anyway because water pokemon are awesome!!

  33. yoshimad Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 20:28

    Looks like I'll be using a Fire starter haven't done that since (B/R/Y/LG/FR). Haha, the water starter... hmmm I don't think I like it. I'm not really sure if they should release a new generation, Gen 5 Pokemon overall looked pretty poor. :(

  34. bobble173 Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 20:45

    I was disappointed with Gen 5 starters, absolutely love Gen 6. If it's fire/psychic I will be so happy, but all three are truely great. The legendaries are awesome, especially the reindeer thing.
    Very excited, 3D, worldwide launch, only a few months!

    How can you be a gamer and not know how this works... It looks worse because the image is stretched like crazy. On 3DS, it will look more crisp. Secondly, while it has 3D graphics and Cel-Shading, the textures are giving an artsy sprite-like feel on purpose - to fit in with the series or it would lose all recognition.

  36. The_BAAD_Man Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 21:59

    Looks great, but I'm not entirely sure about the starters either. They'll grow on me though, surely.
    I'll hopefully get a 3DS towards the end of the year when I'm back in Ireland and one of these will be getting bundled with it.

    Oh, and the first legendary pokémon reminds me a LOT of the Forest Spirit from Princess Mononoke.

  37. SammyDodger Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 22:02

    I'M SO EXCITED :D I can safely say they're pushing all the right buttons atm. Sure the Pokémon won't be to everyone's taste, but there's always some that people will like. Either way it's going to be a great few months of speculation. This is a very good start to the year.

  38. Cacnea Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 at 22:11

    Hey - a water starter pokemon that's not all cutesy. About time. I usually like grass starters, but it's going to be Froakie for me this time. And the Y legendary looks fierce.

  39. Kirby8 Wednesday 9th Jan 2013 at 02:02

    Legendaries look damn amazing! And I think it'll be Fennekin for me! Love fire, so was always going to be fire. Fennekin looks pretty cool though. Pretty decent starters. Chespin is very cute, but confusing. He looks like a normal pokémon wearing a grass hat and some grass on his back. Maybe a normal/grass type?

  40. j bean Wednesday 9th Jan 2013 at 16:26

    I'm going to wait to see the final evolutions before I pick which starter I want.

  41. GamerGuyN Wednesday 9th Jan 2013 at 16:29

    Oh god Ii can't wait anymore!!! I'm going with Froakie on Pokemon Y

  42. Da_Epic_Fail Wednesday 9th Jan 2013 at 17:08

    Either gonna be Froakie or Fennekin I start with, although all three look great imo.
    Xerneas is rapidly growing on me, seeing the rainbow chromosome antlers and the fact it has swords for legs, not so sure about Yveltal yet though, but liking it a whole lot more then some previous legendaries.

  43. slorp Wednesday 9th Jan 2013 at 17:33

    Not a huge fan of the starters, but those are the best looking main legendaries there's been a while

  44. Mmmyeah Wednesday 9th Jan 2013 at 19:03

    I'm pretty sure that the X and Y don't relate to DNA/Gender

    I think it refers to the X Y Z axis (Dimensions)

    The Legendary X Pokemon is a stag - The X axis measures distance, so the stag will travel across land
    The Legendary Y Pokemon is a bird/dragon - The Y axis measures height, so the bird will fly up high etc

    The third game will most likely be Z because X Y Z represent three dimensions - which would make perfect sense as this is the first 3D pokemon installment! :D


    That is a very cool idea. It looks like dimensions will play big part in both games them.

  45. VinceLovesToast Wednesday 9th Jan 2013 at 19:28

    Fennekin used a psychic move in the trailer so it might be a psychic type but ninetails the other fox pokemon knew extrassonary

  46. VinceLovesToast Wednesday 9th Jan 2013 at 19:30

    In every gen they added on evolutions 2 other pokemon (except kanto DUH) other than unova but that had no old pokemon so they will probably have new ones hopefully a new eeveelution or 2

  47. zekrom18 Thursday 10th Jan 2013 at 02:53

    I think the starters aren't bad cause they do have new and individual designs. However in my eyes I can tell that fennekin (if thats how you spell it) will obviously be the favorite out of the three. I would also choose fennekin but its kinda reminds me of zorua some how...
    though its hard to choose hard cause no one knows what other new water, fire and grass types would be in the game and we are yet to see the evolutions. the legendaries are kind of hard to choose from though... :)

    Can't wait for the game!!!! :D

  48. Starman64O Thursday 10th Jan 2013 at 15:43

    I personall hope that there will be links or evolutions or babies of current Pokémon, as well as new mechanics.

    Like Kyurem with Zekrom or Reshiram, fusions of Pokémon. I remember an Anime episode where two Luvdiscs kiss and then start flying like a butterfly as they are stuck together. Things that fuse Pokémon together and such.

    Also, Pokémon who don't evolve could be given evolutions, or maybe even pre-evolutions. Remember Roselia? Introduced in Generation III, it was given both a baby form as Budew, as well as an evolution in the form of Roserade. Why not give Pokémon such as Skarmory, Pinsir, Emolga, Absol and Heracross another Evolution stage?

  49. KH81314 Thursday 10th Jan 2013 at 15:58

    In my opinion chespin looks the best even though i have never chosen a grass pokemon as the starter. I wonder how their stats are going to look.

  50. Alina Munir Thursday 10th Jan 2013 at 17:05

    You know X & Y are based on axis? :shock:
    The X legendary is a land beast (the X axis) and the Y legendary is a flying beast (the Y axis) :mrgreen:
    So the next game must be Pokemon Z so then we have all 3 axis which makes 3 dimensions, which is also why the game is on Nintendo 3DS
    Get it? :roll: 8)

  51. chepin2799 Thursday 10th Jan 2013 at 21:08

    Think i might have chepin :/ Might change when ive seen evolutions :mrgreen: :D

  52. Hams96 Friday 11th Jan 2013 at 05:12

    Fennekin looks a bit like Zorua, the stag immediately reminded me of Arceus, and Cheepsin looks strange.

  53. KH81314 Friday 11th Jan 2013 at 13:13

    I'm glad that old pokemon are returning. We get to see them before the end of the game.

  54. Mew3 Friday 11th Jan 2013 at 15:28

    I'm pretty sure that the X and Y don't relate to DNA/Gender

    I think it refers to the X Y Z axis (Dimensions)

    The Legendary X Pokemon is a stag - The X axis measures distance, so the stag will travel across land
    The Legendary Y Pokemon is a bird/dragon - The Y axis measures height, so the bird will fly up high etc

    The third game will most likely be Z because X Y Z represent three dimensions - which would make perfect sense as this is the first 3D pokemon installment! :D


    If that's true, then why is there something that looks like a double helix in the logos?

  55. Tristan1229 Friday 11th Jan 2013 at 19:35

    I got so hyped when I heard there was gonna be an announcement but I was at skl when it was broadcasted, first thing I did when I got home, jump on the laptop check Serebii. Got so hyped and the best part is, JAPAN DON'T GET IT BEFORE US, WORLDWIDE AT THE SAME TIME. Right now my starter choice is leaning towards Fennekin cos I Iike fire types, but may change my mind depending on final evolutions and movesets, because I think the best thing they could do with the moveset is give Fennekin and it's evolutions eruption or at least Flare Blitz. Legendary wise first impression was get Y for Yvetal but now I'm not sure. But if they do add a Z and a new amazing Legendary and really take advantage of the 3D I will end up with all the Gen VI games.

  56. Jennifer Johnson Saturday 12th Jan 2013 at 00:57

    Don`t you dare make fennekens evolutions fire and fighting instead use fire and psy' Chespin`s evolution`s can be Grass and Dark And froky make water and fighting evos for it and how 'bout makin' a europe related reigion

  57. 9 Times Saturday 12th Jan 2013 at 12:19

    YES....just YES. :shock:

    I think EXACTLY what you just said. I couldn't have put it better myself good sir. :D

  58. roekie321 Saturday 12th Jan 2013 at 17:47

    fenekin is cool but i hate fire
    stil i choose fenekin :D :D :D :D :D :) :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

  59. HughPR Saturday 12th Jan 2013 at 18:56

    Eeesh, I don't check serebii/ONM for a few days and they announce this! Why is my luck so bad???

    Anyway, the instant I saw the knew starters I wasn't convinved, but now, post-video, I like them slightly better. I still think that they're tacky, although I've thought that of every generation since 4th so...the legends look awesome and I like the X and Y theme, plus, as others have mentioned, it leads very nicely into Z which will be the third version, working on a 3-dimensional basis.

    The graphics look fantastic. It's Colosseum graphics on a handheld and I am dying to see what a Wailord/other legends will look like!

    Despite being skeptical, I know that I'll buy it anyway, I just enjoy them too much, I just wish that the starters could have been a bit better. Maybe their evolutions will be great, and decent typing this time please = NO FIRE/FIGHTING AGAIN!!! Although from the look of Fenekin I think we're safe.

    POSSIBLE SPOILERS (if this idea turns out to be true)

    I don't know if this is the right place to post this but it seems to be the most sensible. After searching some forums and doing my own research, I've decided to officially predict that the third legendary will be a snake and the legendaries will be connected to a sacred tree. This idea originates from Norse mythology and the story of Yggdrasil (a tree) which includes an eagle (Yveltal) a deer (Xerneas) and a serpent (name starting with Z possibly)?

    I'm not going to post the link for the forum that covers this idea exclusively incase people don't want the story (possibly) spoiled for them but this idea has certainly piqued my interest and actually got me researching Norse mythology (which is a first!) :D.

    Hopefully this post is relevant to the forum, it does talk about new Pokemon, and that no one hates me for posting why I think this!

  61. Johnnie Saturday 12th Jan 2013 at 20:23

    I'm going with fennekin I like a nice fire type at my side 8)

  62. jaykthepikachu Saturday 12th Jan 2013 at 21:33

    I wonder what the legend's backstory is.
    Out of the 2 Legends,i'm getting Yveltal
    and i'm getting Fennekin to keep with my
    tradition of choosing Fire Starters.
    Also glad to see a Wild Pikachu in the vid
    as it means this new region has Pikas in it,
    Which will save me time when it comes to
    my Pikachu Breeding.

    Surely Gamefreak must be starting to realise this...
    I don't know if anyone agrees with this, but when I think Pokemon, I think early generation style.
    Personally, generation 3 is the most "Pokemon" of all them all. Look at them!

    I understand that Pokemon have always been based off real life things, like animals and objects, but when it has an uncanny resemblance (I'm looking at you, Vanillite) it loses the charm.

    Basically, here's what I think makes a decent looking Pokemon. If you can imagine it looking good standing next to, and coming out of, a pokeball, then you have a winner.

    This is a problem I see a lot with these long, tall horse-looking Pokemon for example. It just doesn't look right! The same with the new Xerneas Legendary. It doesn't look like a Pokemon! Mewtwo looked good next to a Pokeball...

    Does anyone else agree?

    Yep. Listen up game freak; I want to play pokemon with imaginative creatures, not just some zebra (zebstrika) or an ice-cream. Before long, we will be playing the game with office furniture. I exaggerate but seriously, more flare and creativity is needed, or the series will die. :(

  65. willir97 Sunday 13th Jan 2013 at 19:48

    Like someone else had said x represents length or distance so that is why there is a land one for x. Y is for height so that's why y is a flying. If they make a z, represents depth so that will probably be a water type. This game looks like its gonna be much better than black and white. I'd have to say that black and white reg. sucked but they did make black and white 2 much better. Hopefully this will be the best. My favorites are b2 and w2, platinum, heart gold and soul silver, emerald, crystal, leaf green, and lastly pokemon yellow, one of the ones that started all of this

  66. KH81314 Monday 14th Jan 2013 at 17:07

    My starter will probably be Chespin.I just love everything about him. My Legendary choice is Yveltal. That is one cool looking Pokemon.

  67. koopa_kicker Monday 14th Jan 2013 at 17:44

    From article: The Pokemon X and Y trailer shows Chespin firing off a Dark move as well as a Water type attack.
    Pretty sure it used solarbeam, which is a Grass type attack, not Water. Typo?

  68. VinceLovesToast Monday 14th Jan 2013 at 17:52

    Xerneas' antlers have six colours (orange red yellow purple light blue and dark blue) could this mean he can change type with an old antler item like arceus can with plates?

  69. Manifos Monday 14th Jan 2013 at 20:21

    I might start with Fennekin because I like it but I'm still thinking about it. I'm totally getting Yuveltal and PLEASE put a PokeWalker to this game to I loved the PokeWalker.

  70. D12 Tuesday 15th Jan 2013 at 12:33

    Personally I wasn't a great fan of black/white, the region and story were both decent but the pokemon designs ruined it for me. The designs in gen 1, 2 and 3 were great and so far these look far better than gen 5 (especially Yveltal, he looks amazing! :D )

  71. zekrom18 Wednesday 16th Jan 2013 at 08:04

    I know most people may find the starters dodgey or the timing alittle off but if you ask me this was the most exiting begining to the year I've ever had! Can't wait! I'm definitely going for Fennekin and Yveltal, which I think alot will choose - but they are soo cool :D plus yveltal is only around four feet smaller than rayquaza - ive been waiting for a big legendary for aaages!!! I can't wait for the new pokemon to come out and unlike most people I enjoyed the unova region alot and I'm so exited for more - and its on the 3ds!!!! EEEEEEEE CAN'T WAIT FOR4 X and Y :D!!!

  72. MickelsPickles Friday 18th Jan 2013 at 22:29

    They said they didn't know the moves Chespin used, it used Solar Beam and what looks to be Night Slash. (Just saying)

  73. Jayman98 Saturday 19th Jan 2013 at 13:08

    i am generally a grass type trainer when i starta pokemon journey. bulbasaur, chikorita, treeko, turtwig and snivy have allowed me to beat the game with the help of others, but the grass one in this doesnt look like a very worthwhile pokemon to train so iam am being drawn to the fire type, Fennekin, in this game as it reminds me of the first fire type i ever caught, Vulpix and later on, a ninetails. although will decide when evolutions and moves list comes out.Thx. GRASS TYPES RULE!!!!!!! :D

  74. HaydnRhys Saturday 19th Jan 2013 at 22:50

    This might just be the first time I get both games.

    Also, are there going to be any other completely new Pokemon other than the starters. That's why I didn't get black or white 2

  75. themightyboar Monday 21st Jan 2013 at 18:36

    has anyone noticed the mascot for y looks more than a little like a fusion between groundon and lugia

  76. Reuben Johnson Tuesday 22nd Jan 2013 at 03:26

    Whatever you do don`t make Fennekins evolutions be fire and fighting type :evil: or make froakie not pure water type :evil:and chespin not pure grass :evil: instead use grass and dark :D fire and psycic :D and froakie water and fighting :D and if you look in three areas on the net you will find three pokemon :idea: Cheshog,Fur Chi,and Froakic then anounce them

  77. zekrom18 Wednesday 23rd Jan 2013 at 01:53

    I'm more of a fire type starter cus when I start i went with charmander, cyndaquil, torchic, chimchar and tepig/oshawott because i liked dewott and samurott.
    FIRE TYPES ARE THE BEST!!

  78. Bisharp Thursday 24th Jan 2013 at 06:14

    I want to get pokemon Y coz it looks cool. And my starter is gonna b froakie coz I like water starters. I hope they come up with a pokemon z.

  79. tpie123 Saturday 26th Jan 2013 at 17:46

    Looking forward to a new possible batch of interesting bug and ghost types like the last gen for competitive battling, yeah obi!

  80. Anakin Sunday 27th Jan 2013 at 12:13

    i would pick chespin i would pick him just like i picked the grass starters from dimond to black and white 2 :mrgreen:

  81. EtherealWings Monday 28th Jan 2013 at 16:07

    I'm pretty sure that the X and Y don't relate to DNA/Gender

    I think it refers to the X Y Z axis (Dimensions)

    The Legendary X Pokemon is a stag - The X axis measures distance, so the stag will travel across land
    The Legendary Y Pokemon is a bird/dragon - The Y axis measures height, so the bird will fly up high etc

    The third game will most likely be Z because X Y Z represent three dimensions - which would make perfect sense as this is the first 3D pokemon installment! :D

    So the third Legendary will be 3D? Makes sense. That, or it travels sideways: a legendary crustacean...
    This iteration actually looks interesting though: i've not bothered with Pokemon games since Ruby/ Sapphire, but i might keep my eye on this.

    I love the description given by Freddie which all seems to make perfect sense. The legendary from the 3rd game sounds more likely to have the ability to run very fast and fly very fast, similar to a Shaymin Sky forme or Landorus Therian forme.

  83. Curley09 Monday 4th Feb 2013 at 20:17

    i saw that it represent the germ layer or something

  84. ditto9 Tuesday 12th Feb 2013 at 09:28

    I don't think Ninfia is confirmed yet

  85. K-tet Tuesday 12th Feb 2013 at 09:46

    Ninfia looks bad-ass, although when I first saw it I must admit that to me, it didn't look like an Eeveelution at all. It looked like a fusion between Victini and Mienshao. The truth is, I love it, but as for its typing, I can put forward two possibilities, either a Flying-type, or if the rumours of two new types are true, it could be a Light-type.

    Definitely will be checking this Eeveelution out once the game's released.

  86. zappy27 Tuesday 12th Feb 2013 at 10:56
  87. Jimmy Mcbillbill Tuesday 12th Feb 2013 at 11:42

    I'm definitely choosing fennekin, his evolutions are going to look awesome, plus I always choose the fire type 8) :D

  88. vtheyoshi Tuesday 12th Feb 2013 at 19:50

    Needs more Rayquaza.

  89. pokedudes Thursday 14th Feb 2013 at 18:34

    I love fire types I'm goin for ffffffeeeeennnneeeeekkkkiiiinnnnnn :P :D :D :D :D i think sylveon is ground and fire

  90. Kawaii-Straberri Monday 18th Feb 2013 at 21:07

    Can't wait 4 the game 2 come out :shock: :mrgreen:
    I'm stuck on wheater 2 get X or Y
    I like da whole thing about Yvteval he looks like a cool dark type and flying type and I love both of them
    But I love da look of Xernaus he looks like a grass type
    Every game I had I hav chosen a water type but I like Fennekin I'm not 2 keen on Frokie jus gonna wait 4 final evalutions
    Sylveon looks like he might be a physic type but there's already Espeon

  91. Nintendo77 Tuesday 19th Feb 2013 at 18:44

    I really want it! :) But I'm probably not gonna get it :( My favorites Chespin!!

  92. Jaffrotortoise3 Wednesday 20th Feb 2013 at 20:45

    THE. STARTERS. ARE. HORRIBLE.

    I'm sorry, but...here we have our proof that the designs are getting worse.

    When I saw the Gen 5 starters I hated them. I've kinda gotten over them but they were still the worst starters...until now.

    The fox thing I can deal with. It's not too bad. But the other two?! MY GOD do hurt to look at....

    The problem I have is that they look fake. You know when someone creates a Pokemon, goes 'OMG NEW POKEMON' and it obviously doesn't look legit? That's the way these look to me. The peanut thing just makes you want to punch it, and the frog, 'Froakie'?! IT'S HORRID.

    ...That said the legendaries are pretty cool. However, the dragon being the obvious mascot for Y is obvious. Noticed the shape of the thing? IT'S A Y SHAPE -_-

    Shame the starters suck though :L

    1)ive seen lots of people lik you moaning about pokemon getting worse and the first 151 were the best, and ill say to you what i said to them, if u dont like pokemon, dont play it!
    2) its not like theyre trying to hide the fact that its the y mascot! :x :x :x

  93. StephanieGlinski Saturday 23rd Feb 2013 at 18:09

    are the going to make a copy of pokemon x and pokemon y for nintendo dsi

  94. King Slazo Saturday 23rd Feb 2013 at 18:27

    No, they're 3DS games.

  95. Elwyn games Sunday 3rd Mar 2013 at 09:45

    I prefer grass types usually,as they're eager, calm or sophisticated. This time though they all seem quite childish,so it wipes my ideas away.

  96. agqwestern Saturday 9th Mar 2013 at 14:41

    after i played pokemon SS and chose cydaquill i told myself that next time i'd choose a grass starter which i did in pokemon black, so thist time round it's a water starter. but froakie looks really boring. i just hope that the evolutions look cooler... :|

  97. Ben Steward Sunday 10th Mar 2013 at 21:08

    Stater pokemon look awful to be frank

    A frog that look,s like it just came out of the bath. Come on

    A fox painted red. How inventive game freak

    And a squirrel with a leaf on its back. I had one of them when I rescued a squirrel from a bush

    ....Although the legendary s seem ok I would choose Y I think that X is probably one for the lady,s

    But I'm 11 now and I play fifa and black ops so I probably won,t buy it. I only play the classics like ruby and emerald. So I won,t be buying it.

    Game freak to be frank since you unvaled pokemon black and white all I thought is "we'll down goes pokemon"

  98. SuperRobbie Sunday 17th Mar 2013 at 21:59

    Probably going to choose Froakie!

  99. Frederico Sunday 7th Apr 2013 at 01:46

    I really liked the original and legendary Pokemon, but I think this new evolution of Eeve is very strange. I liked that they put some old Pokémon. I think they should put some Pokemon of the third generation, which, in my opinion, are the best. I think I'll start with Chespin. My first impression of him was that he looked like a mole, which gave me high expectations, thinking he could be the type: Grass / Ground. But it seems I was wrong, after all, said it was a hedgehog. I'm Brazilian, and I wrote it all by Google Translate, so probably some words must be wrong.

    I have to disagree, I reckon they're getting back on track after the slight misstep of Gen V (not saying it was bad, but... Well, just look at Trubbish). And the fact that you're eleven doesn't really mean you have to stop playing Pokemon, by the time this comes out I'll be 17 and I'm still getting it.
    As for "playing the classics", I'd say this is looking like it's trying to recapture some of the old vibes, especially now that they have a new Mewtwo lookalike. I think they're going to try to appeal to old fans as well as newbies.
    Also, learn proper English. The Brazilian guy has better spelling and grammar than you.

  101. loniandragon Sunday 7th Apr 2013 at 21:19

    The Legendary Y Pokemon is a bird/dragon - The Y axis measures height, so the bird will fly up high etc

    The third game will most likely be Z because X Y Z represent three dimensions - which would make perfect sense as this is the first 3D pokemon installment! :D

    The Z axis usually represents depth, which makes a great point for what you're saying. As in: Z axis/game represents depth, so the Z legendary will live deep in the ocean (like 3rd gen, with ocean, land and sky legendaries) :D

  102. Mineturtle Monday 8th Apr 2013 at 10:41

    probably going to choose froakie or chespin :D

  103. Magikasta Saturday 13th Apr 2013 at 10:26

    I will choose Fennekin and name him Tails "miles" Prower.

  104. RiksilveR Saturday 13th Apr 2013 at 23:58

    It's Miles "Tails" Prower. Just sayin'.

    Chespin. Nuff said. ;)

  106. Wyraachur Monday 29th Apr 2013 at 19:52

    Starter wise I'm tied between Fennekin and Froakie. Guess it might also depend on what the first gyms coming up after you start the game will be.

    As for version, I'm probably going to grab Y. I've really taken to Yveltal's design.

  107. Kai Jensen Saturday 4th May 2013 at 06:37

    When I saw the Gen 5 starters I hated them. I've kinda gotten over them but they were still the worst starters...until now.

    ...That said the legendaries are pretty cool. However, the dragon being the obvious mascot for Y is obvious. Noticed the shape of the thing? IT'S A Y SHAPE -_-

    Shame the starters suck though :L

    I disagree entirely the new Pokemon nearly Always look great, the only reason people like you blindly rage against them looking fake is because they are more detailed than the first gen Pokemon. It's true just look at the detail on them. I personally really like these starters and will choose freakiest because it's original and very Pokemon like, more Pokemon like than machop actually in my opinion.

    Agreed. This is why I like the new generations more than the old one, more power in the consoles means more detail can be used on the pokemon.

  111. helmarocka Tuesday 14th May 2013 at 16:41

    I prefer the look of the other new Pokemon over the starters, I mean Gogoat has a way cooler design than Chespin, that thing just looks crazy, I wonder if they look better when they evolve :L

    1) I never mentioned the original 151 (not even my favourite Generation), and the fact that I dislike the starters doesn't automatically mean that I don't like Pokemon...

    2) When I posted the comment, they had barely confirmed anything about Yveltal (not even its name, which is why I referred to it as 'the dragon'), and there was a lot of speculation over what the new legendaries actually were, which is why I pointed out that 'the dragon' was the clear Y mascot.

  115. Ghostly_Shadeon Tuesday 14th May 2013 at 18:52

    Gogoat acts and looks as if it's an alternative evolution to Deerling.
    Think about it: It has a kinda similar appearance to Sawsbuck, knows the move Horn Leech, and it's leafy mane gives the impression that it's the Summer forme.
    From the looks of it, it appears that it may be male only (i.e. Gallade being male only from Kirlia.)

    I think you need to correct the heights of the Pokemon. Pancham is 2 ft not 2m, Charizard is only 1.7m! :lol:

    For some reason Noivern makes me think of, Discord from MLP:FiM

    Ha... I think I just got what they mean by about the pattern on Vivillon's wings... E3!!!

    Is anyone getting both versions?

  120. Ella Holliday Wednesday 12th Jun 2013 at 18:22

    I am so excited for this game! I love the starters and legendarys, and I really like gogoat and pancham. The other new pokemon are okay; this is promising to be a great pokedex for me! I will probably choose Fennekin, cuz' I am a sucker for cute and cool starters. People are saying that Fennekin is practically the same as vulpix and zorua, but that's okay with me because those are some of my favourite pokemon. I hope Fennekin will evolve into something on all four paws because I'm funny that way... :P

    *Suffering from the inability to resist cute pokemon...

    Did anyone else see the Charizard at the end of one of the trailers?

    Stater pokemon look awful to be frank

    A frog that look,s like it just came out of the bath. Come on

    A fox painted red. How inventive game freak

    And a squirrel with a leaf on its back. I had one of them when I rescued a squirrel from a bush

    ....Although the legendary s seem ok I would choose Y I think that X is probably one for the lady,s

    But I'm 11 now and I play fifa and black ops so I probably won,t buy it. I only play the classics like ruby and emerald. So I won,t be buying it.

    Game freak to be frank since you unvaled pokemon black and white all I thought is "we'll down goes pokemon"

    i believed this until the line about X being for ladies, the "I'm 11 now" just overdid it. still, 5/10 for being almost believable.

  123. Roibeard Sunday 16th Jun 2013 at 21:31

    Going wait til I see the evolutions before deciding but I always pick Water in my main version.

  124. concernedcamel Wednesday 19th Jun 2013 at 19:41

    Give me that frog, panda and that fire cub please :) bet the panda will evolve into an ursaring type bear

  125. GamerOutlaw Thursday 20th Jun 2013 at 21:13

    kinda want to go with Fennekin, but since Talonflame will probably be in my party that leaves the door wide open for Chespin to steal the starter poke spot.

    Haven't looked forward to a poke game this much since gold/silver. :mrgreen:

    Look at you! So mature playing CoD and FIFA whilst us lot appreciate the good games (not casual) and besides those are Basic stage starters not their evo's which will look awesome. Chespin could end up evolving into an assassin chipmunk. Fennekin is yellow with tinges of orange. Froakie, well I'll give you that but I'll wait until I see their evo's before judging properly.

  127. reoonshsus Sunday 7th Jul 2013 at 19:06

    i will pick chespin or fenniken :?

  128. Space Arena Monday 8th Jul 2013 at 12:09

    Wait just a second. Am I the only one who noticed that Helioptile looks like Ampharos. And Flaaffy (Ampharos' pre-evolution) doesn't look like Ampharos at all? Does that mean that Flaaffy and Mareep were originally intended to be a separate evolutionary line? And Helioptile was supposed to evolve into Ampharos. But this was changed later for some reason?
    Well, this is not the first time we see this in pokemon.
    Dragonair---> Gyarados
    Magikarp--->Dragonite
    Venonat--->Butterfree
    Metapod--->Venomoth

  129. SketchSpirit Friday 12th Jul 2013 at 22:01

    Has anybody else noticed that there has yet to be a "vendor trash" Pokemon, (ala Bidoof, Rattata, Patrat) yet? I'm kinda hoping that means we won't be getting one and they'll just reuse an old one.

  130. Bootler Wednesday 17th Jul 2013 at 19:14

    Is that like...a banana peel owl????

    If I'm perfectly honest, I think that either litleo or gogoat's prevolution (if it has one) might end up taking that spot

  132. scottishmario Tuesday 13th Aug 2013 at 22:08

    The Mega Evolution that I'm most interested in is Blazikens, mainly because it's a starter Pokemon. If the feature of Mega Evolution is carried over into future games - A Ruby/Saphire remake for example - wouldn't this give Blaziken an edge against his starter Pokemon counterparts? Could this mean there will also be a Mega Swampert and Sceptile? Or even more exciting than that, other Mega starter evolutions! Mega Venesaur, Blastoise and Charizard anyone? *Sigh* A man can dream, a man can dream...

  133. RSE III Tuesday 13th Aug 2013 at 23:21

    I only just realised that if MewTwo has a mega evolution, it will probably be available to catch in the game without having to go to real-life event. That's great news for people like me who can't go to Pokemon events at all.

    I'm pretty certain it's that Rabbit Pokémon, Bunnelby. It looks derpy, like the lovechild of a Bidoof and Lopunny.

    The Mega Evolutions themselves are going to be an interesting factor. I already love the look of Mega Lucario, Mega Mawile and Mega Ampharos. Mega Blaziken will be sanctioned to the Uber tier due to Speed Boost (mind you, Mega's themselves may be Uber, or have a tier to themselves). Fairy-types however, that's the real game-changer, still very much an unknown despite the fact we know they beat Dragons. If they are immune to or resist Dragon-type moves, you can bet that the OU and Uber tiers are going to be swamped by them. We're just waiting on the rest of the rumours to be confirmed (that is, super effective against Dark and Fighting-types, weak to Steel and Poison-types, and not very effective against Psychic and Fire-types).

  135. GamerOutlaw Wednesday 14th Aug 2013 at 13:33

    Those new evo's look amazing. I don't get the combusken one though, totally gonna steal fennekins spotlight. Why pick a fire type starter when that special torchics going to get distributed?...Unless all the next gen starters will have their own mega evo?

  136. mrmariomaster Wednesday 14th Aug 2013 at 18:54

    Wow.. Have I just seen kanghaskan's BABY?!

  137. PacifistBoxer Thursday 5th Sep 2013 at 15:09

    MEGAAAA BLASTOIIIIISE!!! Venasaur and Chari are good but man am I a sucker for big guns.

  138. Capt_Anders Saturday 7th Sep 2013 at 22:14

    Very dangerous for the guys at Pokémon to mess around with cherished starter Pokémon especially 1st gen ones, I can see Red and Blue fan boys heads exploding at the mere concept of Mega Pokémon. But in all honesty I kind of agree with them, on a purely subjective level I'm not a fan of most of the mega Pokémon's appearances, but other than that this just isn't really a necessary dimension of gameplay for Pokémon. Yes you don't have to use Mega Pokémon, and I'm not going to not going to boycott the game or anything silly like that as I will always love Pokémon. However messing with Pokémon that already exist is not fair to people who have cherished memories of that Pokémon, as they may not like their mega Pokémon iteration. Yes you don't have to use Mega Pokémon, but surely they could of just been content with creating new Pokémon for a new generation as they always have done, rather than tampering with the older generations hurting the old generation?

    Im going to be smart about this. first off Im going to pick Bulbasaur as my gen 1 starter. Why? because its the best starter for the gen 1 pokemon stat wise and im going to need a nice Wall and a synthesis toxic Venusaur is just plain nasty. then for my Kalos starter im going Froakie because its a frog....frogs are awesome...also i need a decent water type and this thing seems like its going to be a suped up Floatzel, fast and powerful. So...Can anyone guess what im doing after that? well if not then let me just say this....October 12th-January 15th.....Yes thats right! Blaziken is one of my favorite starters ever even moreso than Samurott(i can already feel the hate incoming cuz i said that but yes i thought Samurott was just plain awesome looking.)and the main reason is that i beat the Hoenn E4 with my Blaziken at 25 HP and 1 PP left on her blaze kick and it killed the last pokemon, Kingdra,with its last PP before struggling and making me lose with the champion 1 hit away from defeat. anyway im just saying that i prefer to look at it more strategically then by just the looks. If you play a pokemon game called Pokemon Reborn(i say its a game because its not a hack, its literally its own game, it just uses the base coding of R/S/E and RPG Maker) and you will have to do the same and it will make you a better trainer for it.

  140. Talonflame Saturday 12th Oct 2013 at 07:43

    I think Talonflame is one of the best non-starter/ legendary Pokemon. Yveltal is the best legendary yet. The new starter Pokemon are just to cute. Best Pokemon series yet. Can Game Freak make and Nintendo make it any better???

  141. Chespidenne Wednesday 23rd Oct 2013 at 07:08

    Chespin actually looks quite cute and dedenne
