Pokemon X and Y news coming this week

Expect new information on the new Pokemon 3DS games

Pokemon X and Y were announced last month but we have heard little about the games since then. That's all set to change this week with the release of CoroCoro magazine and this weekend's edition of Pokemon Smash. You can expect exciting Pokemon news this week!

Pokemon Smash - the Sunday morning Japanese show dedicated to Pokemon - confirmed that they will have new Pokemon X and Y information this weekend but the programme also revealed that Pokemon X and Y news will break even earlier in the next edition of Japanese magazine CoroCoro.

Anyone who follows Pokemon will know that CoroCoro is the first magazine to break with Pokemon news and the latest edition is due to be released in the next couple of days.

With Pokemon X and Y set for a worldwide release date for the first time, can we expect to hear about the English-language versions of the games, too? All will be revealed this week.

What do you want to know about Pokemon X and Y?

    I Think It Will Either Be Showing Some New Pokemon Or The Gameplay Mechanics. Who Knows, They May Even Announce The Name Of The New Region!

    "Pokémon X and Y coming this week."

    Misleading title.

    It'll just be the player characters, the region, and the early bird and early rodent, I expect.

    I want to see some of the version exclusive pokemon, the only reason I bought White was because it had Braviary

    Whatever it is, it should be good. Even if it's just a bit of news, at least we'll have more news.

    FINALLY! :D there were a few hints at some new eeveelutions on pokemon smash yesterday, so maybe we'll see something there. i really want to see the evolutions of the starters, and maybe some new evos of previous pokemon. just anything would be good!

    I want to learn about the new legendarys, cause we still don't know their types, or the legends behind them. I'd also like to see more new pokemon, even if it's the just the normal type you find on the first route. The region name and starting town name would nice.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they announcede something big. They announced the Starters in the first trailer so anything could happen.

    Just announcing the starter's evolutions would be fine. Can't decide which starter to get as I dislike them all, but hopefully there will be at least 1 cool evolution...

    I ve seen the pokemon smash trailer,and in true wacky japanese fashion they have guys dressed up as pokemon.The theme of costumes follow the theme of eevee evolutions.So I think the news will be the new eeveelutions. On another website forum last month I came across a guy called something like 'umbracenti 'or 'ultimacenti' can't remember but he profess to have a source that gave him decriptions or concepts of six other pokemon plus new eveelution. This leaves me to believe eeveelutions will be the revelation on sunday

    Mark my words the news is two more eeveelutions, if you've been watching pokemon smash they have been showing people dressed as eevee's evolutions each week :D

    Was meant to post saying very excited, but it's kinda late now since the issue has come out.
