New ‘Pokemon X and ‘Y’ Details Arriving This Week

Pokemon X Y Screenshots

It’s been somewhat of a slow year for fans of Nintendo’s Pokemon franchise thus far, but things are scheduled to pick up in a big way pretty soon. Not only will trainers be able to head to their local GameStop to nab the fabled Meloetta later next month, but the Big N also has plans to release Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity this March on the Nintendo 3DS. On top of that, there are two brand new games, Pokemon X and Y, scheduled to launch later this year.

Pokemon X and Pokemon Y will finally provide players with the 3D Pocket Monster games they’ve always wanted, but – aside from the starter and Legendary Pokemon featured within the games – not much is currently known about what’s planned for the next core installments in the series. It’s been a long wait for gamers who’ve been eagerly anticipating more details since X and Y were revealed in early January, but some news is now officially forthcoming and should arrive later this week.

The latest episode of Pokemon Smash (the same Japanese television show that revealed Pokemon Black 2 and White 2) has confirmed that new Pokemon X and Y details will be revealed during the next show. To accompanying the games’ grand debut on Japanese television, the Japanese gaming magazine CoroCoro will also feature some details on the pair of titles.

Scans of CoroCoro have a habit of leaking prior to the release of the actual publication, so fans can expect the new details to hit at almost any point before this Wednesday. In the meantime, stay tuned to Game Rant to catch any new information on Pokemon X and Pokemon Y as soon as it becomes available.

Pokemon X and Y are scheduled for a worldwide release on the Nintendo 3DS later this October.

  1. It’s *probably* more info on the legendaries, but it’s possible we could get more out of it. I certainly hope so.

  2. I just hope they’ll give us the legendarie’s types, some story, or map of the region.

    • I would expect at the very least one of those things you’re hoping for. If I had to guess based on rumors, it’d be the first in the list.

  3. Riley, do you think they’ll integrate some new types into this new gen of Pokemon? I heard rumors of a “Light” type but it doesn’t sound like something that is true.

    What details do you think will get revealed?

    • I’m hopeful that they will, but it’s hard to say whether or not Game Freak will add something like a ‘Light’ type. It’s bound to happen eventual, though, if not in Pokemon X and Y then eventually.

      If I were to guess what will be shown off on Pokemon Smash, I’d say that some new gameplay videos highlighting the two new legendary Pokemon are something we can expect. It’s still a little too soon to expect much, but there may be an appearance from a couple of new monsters as well.

      CoroCoro should have a number of new scans, as well as some details on the games’ setting. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a few story details, but I won’t be holding my breath. ;)

  4. Japan has a TV show called Pokemon Smash? Kind of interested in seeing what that is exactly.

    • Uhmm… basically random events like playing games and all, wearing Pokemon clothes. The fun bit is usually the end when the hosts hit the DS and battle one another or a guest star. Sometimes the creator of the game visit the show and show off certain new elements not yet seen elsewhere. For example, the 2nd BW games as well as White Black Kyurem was first revealed in the show by the producer of the game.

  5. nanfia is a new eeveelution

    • i would like to see more eevee evolutions saying i lkie eevee

  6. New type light?
    Surely not…
    If Xerenas would have a new type, Yveltal must have one, too. (If not it would be “unfair” to the Y players…)
    I think Yveltal will be Flying/Unlight type…
    (sorry, i dont know the english word for this type, you know, its the opposite of psycho, eg. umbreon is of this type…)
    and xerenas will be prohably ground/steel, maybe plant/steel…
    Oh, and i hope there will be a dragon eeveelution, that would be awesome!

    • u mean dark type lol?

  7. there will be a new eeveelution…
    it is official said.
    :(
    i am female, and i say: ninfia (google it and barf) is too much girlylike!
    this pokemon doesnt look like the good, well known 7 eeveelutions.
    the pokemon called ninfia looks like the mother of victini or something like that, but this as an eeveelution?
    please let the whole ninfia-thing be a fake or a missunderstanding,
    better NO new eeveelution than ninfia…
    mann, ninfia sieht garnicht nach evolientwicklung aus und wenn es einen normaltyp hat, wäre das noch schlimmer :s

  8. pkmn x,y should have been made for ds players
