Region map, Pokédex design, box art and more!
New details have surfaced about the highly anticipated Pokémon X and Y versions for 3DS, a company press release this morning has revealed.
First and foremost, the newest region to explore has been confirmed as the Kalos region, which promises thriving cities and breathtaking scenery to explore.
A full region map has been provided for your viewing pleasure.
Welcome to the Kalos Region.
The city that was shown in previous trailers and features an Eiffel Tower inspired structure has been confirmed to be named Lumiose city. Along with the reveal are four new Pokémon creatures. A new trailer video has been released to showcase these new monsters among other details.
From the press release;
· The cowardly Pokémon Helioptile, a Normal- and Electric-type Pokémon, can generate enough electricity through sunbathing to power machinery. But wise Trainers won’t be deterred by Helioptile’s lack of bravery. It knows Parabolic Charge, a brand-new move where Helioptile attacks everything around it. Helioptile's HP is restored by half the damage taken by those hit.
· Fletchling, a Normal- and Flying-type Pokémon, sings with a beautiful chirp that is sure to delight any Trainer. Although it is known to be very friendly, Fletchling will suddenly unleash relentless attacks once it’s in battle. For example, when it uses its Fire-type move Flame Charge in battle, in addition to doing damage, Fletchling’s Speed increases every time.
· With a leaf always in its mouth and an intimidating glare that is rarely effective, Fighting-type Pokémon Pancham shows its playful side when it lets out a little smile when its head is pat. Pancham can learn a brand-new move, Parting Shot, which not only lowers an opponent’s Attack and Special Attack, but also allows Pancham to switch out for another Pokémon in a Trainer’s party during battle.
· Pokémon X and Pokémon Y introduce a new method of transportation—riding the brand-new Pokémon, Gogoat. This large Grass-type Pokémon is a reliable way to travel certain parts of Lumiose City. In battle, it can use Horn Leech to recover HP equal to half the damage dealt by this move.
The new Pokédex design has also been revealed, resembling a holographic tablet. Additionally, we are finally treated to the box art design for the two game versions.
Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are scheduled for a worldwide release this October.
