Today Nintendo announced the beginning of a brand new Pokémon generation: Generation VI. And with it, two new Pokémon games: Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Here is the logo.

The games were announced by Satoru Iwata via a special Pokémon themed Nintendo Direct. You can watch the complete event, about eleven minutes in length, including game details and footage on Youtube here. Includes a little retrospective on the series, too.

Not a whole lot is known about Pokémon X and Y, but here's what we've got:

  • Three new starters: Fennekin (Fire), Froakie (Water), and Chespin (Grass).
  • Two new legendaries: Xerneas (ZURR-nee-us), the rainbow stag and Yveltal (ee-VELL-tal), the crimson eagle.
  • First Pokémon to be rendered mostly fully in polygonal 3D. This includes the player character and environments, explorable in 3D.
  • Battles are now in 3D, so no more sprites. 3D animations of course.
  • For the first time ever, Pokémon X and Y are scheduled for a global launch this October. At the very least including Japan, the US, the UK, and Australia.
  • New region suspected to be based on France. See below.

Iwata has also emphasised something about bonding, growing stronger, etc. So I dunno, expect online/StreetPass stuff I guess.

Here are the three new starters: Fennekin, Froakie, and Chespin.

And here are the two legendaries:

Some of the evidence, from the trailer, suggesting the location for the two new games is based in France.

Can't fucking wait! The starters look meh, but that legendary (?) with antlers looked awesome. Full 3D is awesome, though I don't like the art style so much. I feel like it could have been translated into 3D better, but I'll wait and see.

Gonna buy a 3DS XL for this.

Edit : Oh god, those X/Y logos look terrible!
