Pokémon X and Y Versions Announced

     Wow, I didn't see this coming. Well, I did, but not quite so soon after the release of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2. The big thing here, aside from a sixth generation of Pokémon, is this will be the first time the main series of games has moved to the third dimension. When I first read this I instantly had flashbacks of how slow the combat was in the Pokémon Stadium games, and how awful Pokémon Colosseum was. Thankfully my fears were quickly doused when I watched the announcement trailer. Yep, Pokémon X and Y look absolutely gorgeous. I'm still on the fence about the combat, but from what I can tell it has managed to maintain the quickness of the other main games. The announcement trailer is below:


    Keeping with tradition you will start with your choice of either a grass, fire, or water type pokémon by the names of Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie respectively. Also, at about 55 seconds into the trailer you can see a girl following your character. Maybe you have a human companion throughout the game. Or maybe there's even co-op over wi-fi. Probably not, but it would be an interesting addition if their was. Pokémon X and Y will be released worldwide in October, but I'm guessing we'll no a lot more about it in the months to come.
