Meet Four New Pokemon, The First Gym Leader And Everybody Else In X/Y

You'd think The Pokemon Company would have gotten all of its Pokemon X and Pokemon Y news out during the major gaming trade show that just blew through, but no — the info train keeps rolling. Meet your trainer's pals, the first gym leader, and four new entries in the Kalos Region Pokedex.

Let's do this from left to right, starting with the humans. We've got Santalune City Gym Leader Viola, along with her big sister, Alexa. Viola plays with bugs. Then we've got your trainer's three friends from starting location Vaniville Town — the dance-happy Tierno, curious Trevor, and chipper Shauna.

Depending on the sex of your trainer, you'll also run into Serena or Calem, your next-door neighbour who you'll likely end up fighting over and over again.

On the Pokemon side of things we've got (again from left to right) the fairy type Flabébé; fire/normal Litleo, who is ridiculously adorable; and Scatterbug and Spewpa, a pair of bug type Pokemon on the evolutionary path to becoming the butterfly-like Vivillon.

OK, The Pokemon Company — that's enough for now. We've got until October 12.


    All I see is the same pokemon from blue/red just re-skinned.

      I have ignored Diamond/Pearl and Black/White because I thought the Pokemon looked stupid. I was thinking to myself, "man these Pokemon look great!" and your comment explains why. That said, I am freaking excited to play X/Y!

    Meh. It's still a world that solely revolves around animals trained to fight each other? Kinda wrong.

      Interesting perspective. I've often wondered about this. They keep animals in balls and release them only to fight each other most of the time. Pretty sure if we did this in the real world, we'd be locked up.

        True, it's disrespectful to animal rights it's appauling....I'm gonna go play Manhunt again. Where's my plastic bag?


          I don't play manhunt or gore / horror games generally.

          People in wars *generally* enlist. Can't think of any games where you capture people and train them to fight each other.

      Well if that's the case, what's your view on playing war games or games that are associated with organised crime? If you're gonna have that attitude, I don't think there'd be many games for you to play at all...

      Played COD, or Assassins Creed? COD you wage war and Assassins Creed your an assassin.

    By the time you catch them all there will be another 1000.
