Pokemon X and Y Official Thread!
Getting this in a few hours! Post your progressions, trades and Id's so we could all play together!
For the first time in the main series, Pokémon X and Y is presented in fully 3D polygonal graphics, allowing for more interactivity with the overworld and more dynamic action during battles. Players are also able to customize their Pokémon trainer's appearance, choosing gender and skin tone at the start of the game, and can later acquire outfits and accessories to change their character's look. Joining the previous generations of Pokémon are all new species, such as the new Starter Pokémon; Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie, and the legendary Pokémon; Xerneas and Yveltal. In addition to their new starter Pokémon, players will also be able to choose from one of the classic starter Pokémon from Pokémon Red and Blue later on in the game. A new Fairy type is introduced for both new and old Pokémon, the first new type added to the series since Pokémon Gold and Silver.
A new element in the series is Mega Evolution, in which fully evolved Pokémon, such as Mewtwo and Lucario, can use special items to temporarily evolve further into more powerful Mega forms during battle, with some Pokémon having more than one possible Mega form available. Also introduced are Sky Battles, mid-air trainer battles that only flying Pokémon can participate in, and Horde Encounters, in which players must battle against multiple wild Pokémon at once. Pokémon-Amie lets players interact with their Pokémon using the 3DS' touchscreen and camera, playing with them and giving them treats to stengthen their bonds, ultimately affecting the way the Pokémon acts during battle. Super Training features various minigames that help build the base stats of the player's Pokémon, which in turn unlocks training bags that can be used by Pokémon to grow stronger on their own.
Connectivity to other devices
There are various improvements to the communication features. Using the Player Search System (PSS), players can keep track of various online players, including strangers, allowing them to easily initiate battles or trades. The Holo Caster allows the player to receive messages and updates from NPCs via StreetPass and SpotPass. Wonder Trade is a new trading feature that lets players make blind trades with anyone in the world. Other features include O-Powers, temporary powers that can increase stats and can be exchanged with other players, and improvements to the Global Trade System, allowing players to request Pokémon they have not encountered. At certain points in the game, players will be able to take in-game screenshots, which they can then share on the Pokémon Global Link site.
Pokémon Bank is an optional paid cloud storage service that allows players to store up to 3,000 Pokémon online to be shared amongst whichever physical or downloaded copies of the games they may own. Another application called Poké Transporter allows players to upload Pokémon owned in Pokémon Black, White, Black 2, and White 2 to the Bank, which can them be imported into X and Y. There are plans to use these applications for future games in the series
