Everything We've Learned About Pokemon X/Y At E3 In One Handy Video

So much Pokemon X and Pokemon Y news at E3 2013, so little time. Well, not really so little time. I mean, we've found time to tell you about the new Fairy type and the three new Pokemon. All that's left is for you to sit through this five-minute roundtable video and purchase a timeshare.

The timeshare is probably optional. Also, non-existent.


    To bad they can't make fairy classes in prior games, Jigglepuff was so useless in Pokémon Conquest and they literally forced you to use that Warlord.

    I'm not really looking forward to Pokemon at the moment after Black and White 2. I didn't even play White 2 for more than 3 hours, I just didn't have the patience to go through the same thing all over again. I really hope they improve the pacing for this game, which I am doubting because of the new animation system... I think it will once again take forever to play a single battle.

      And that is why the first thing I do is turn off battle animations. But I agree about B2 I played it for about 3days before putting it down and not looking back since.

        I've done a lot of White 2 but then I never played White 1 so maybe that's why.

      Yeah, this is why I skipped B/W after playing Platinum. I think one generation per console is good, but the DS was so popular it got two generations plus the remake, so it was definitely overly-saturated there.

    I haven't invested the time to finish a Pokemon game in years, mainly due to the fact that it was the same game with a new skin over the top. I'm still not sold on X&Y since I'm opposed to Fairy type being the advantage over Dragon type (Seriously, being a cute thing kicks the crap out of a powerful Dragon? Logic mother f*cker, do you make it!?); and the who "Nintendogs with Pokemon" subgame isn't exactly exciting; but the horde mode and the 3D aspect are slowly bringing me around. if they keep showing me something different and appealing, then they'll get my money in October.

      Well, Fairy Type has the advantage because both are mythological creatures, and in some mythos, dragons have no resistance to magic. Here, it's more of a balance thing.

      As for Pokemon-Amie, that's probably going to really help create the 'connection' between trainer and Pokemon that used to be done just by winning battles and walking. It's also partially to appeal to the female members of the fanbase. They make up to anywhere between 25 to 50% of the sales.

    It will be interesting to see if and how these games work with Streetpass.
