More Pokémon X & Y Details Expected in the Coming Week

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Pokémon Smash and CoroCoro gear up

Pokémon X & Y, as would be expected of a new generation title in the famous franchise, is enjoying a particularly lengthy, teasing buildup ahead of its anticipated October release. The most recent snippet of information was a new Mewtwo Form that'll be gracing the title; as that reveal was a month ago, we can safely expect Game Freak to take it up a notch once again.

Thankfully a fresh batch of details is expected in the next week; according to, the next episode of Pokémon Smash — airing in Japan on 19th May — will be an X & Y special. Junichi Masuda will feature, and the pre-show hype is promising plenty of details.

It's also being speculated that the next issue of CoroCoro will be in on the act; that magazine arrives on Wednesday 15th May, though details often make their way online before the publication hits store shelves.

Our monthly fix of Pokémon X & Y info is in the books then. Will you be marking your calendars, and what do you hope will be revealed in the coming week and a half?

Oh my goodness. Those pics are gorgeous.

Will this be my first ever Pokemon game aside from Pokemon Conquest? Possibly, possibly...



Harrison_Peter said:

@Midnight3DS Conquest is a good spin-off but you should definitely give the main series a go at some point! I haven't played them all, only the most recent ones and the classic Red and Blue games on my GameBoy. Very fond memories!



Midnight3DS said:


I may get White v2 to get primed for it. I've considered it long enough. I was hoping for a Game Boy release to test the waters, but who knows about that.



Zup said:

After I finally thought i had outgrown Pokemon, they just HAVE to announce a game that i could never refuse. Well played. I'm so psyched for the new details.



Pokefanmum82 said:

can't wait to get some news. i hope we see the evolutions of the starters and maybe something more about being able to play with people around the world.



Lalivero said:

Looks like we'll get some juicy details finally. I hope they have an updated pic of the overworld this time; the only thing so far that obviously needed some smoothening out. Everything else is really looking nice.

@Midnight3DS Unless you're talking about a GBA pokemon release, I wouldn't do that. The Gameboy pokemon games, while very fun for their time, have somewhat broken/unblanced combat systems as well as a number of bugs and glitches. If you're looking to play one of the older games I'd recommend the remade version of Red or Green for GBA, or the Gold or Silver remake for DS (My personal favorite pokemon game) .



One-Winged-Pit said:

I was angered by the new Mewtwo form, not because of the form itself but because we were promised a NEW Pokemon not a new form!



Prof_Elvin_Gadd said:

I haven't played Pokemon in years, since Yellow, but I enjoy the series and plan on getting back into it with this iteration. Do a lot of you lovely people purchase both versions of the game or do you just stick with one?

Thanks for answering in advance!



Funny_Moblin said:

THIS IS URGENT...I MUST KNOW...I want them to tell us if we'll be able to transfer pokemon from Black 2/White 2.



Yellowgerbil said:

@Funny_Moblin That is almost a certainty, but it would be after you beat the elite four. I would consider not buying it if I can't get my pokemon all the way from red to B2.



FriedSquid said:

I just wanna know if they're gonna put in a new type or not, just to blow that rumor out of the water. Sylveon's type would be a good reveal.



gloom said:

It's about time they reveal new pokemon. And not just starters and legendaries. NEW and NORMAL pokemon. I can't wait Pokemon is such a great series and this is looking out to be quite the quality game.



WindWakerLink said:

Oh my goodness! New info is coming sooner than I thought. I thought new info would be @ E3 but I guess not.

I want them to show the new villains. "Team....??" Maybe it will be "Team Alpha" or "Team Beta." XD



Prof_Elvin_Gadd said:

@Zup That's more than likely what I'll do as well. The last time I bought Blue and eventually Yellow. I think I'm going to go with Y for this iteration because I like the legendary Yveltal Pokemon a little better than Xerneas.




@Funny_Moblin I think there will be that chance, nintendo and game freak aren't that stupid. The only time they broke that rule was with the transition from gb/gbc to gba but I think they won't screw up, and also b/w 2 are very recent games, so I'm sure you will be able to transfer them.



Gioku said:

I wouldn't be worried about transferring from DS games.

Looking from the technology in Pokemon Dream Radar, a 3DS download game can quite easily communicate with a DS game. Thus, potentially, if you download X or Y, you could pop in a DS series game, and pull Pokemon right out of it. That would be quite intuitive if you ask me; it would be extra incentive to get the download copy, as the physical copy would require two systems for transferring, or possibly a seperate transfer app; much more clunky.



andjahiam said:

@Dpullam I wish that they port this over to Wii U with HD graphics like Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Imagine how this would improve sales for both systems. X play would be awesome....




@andjahiam Pokemon has always been a portable adventure due to the immensity of the games themselves, except colosseum and xd, but those sucked so hard that it seems nintendo learned from that so they won't be releasing any console adventure; so instead I hope they release a spiritual successor to pokemon stadium in the wii u so you can battle it all out in hd glory along with those wonderful minigames.



Funny_Moblin said:

@FOURSIDE_BOY Thanks for the response. I don't think excluding Black/ White 1 from being transferred to X and Y would be Game Freak being stupid, but actually smart for them on the contrary. Why? Because if they do that, they will force people who don't have Black/ White 2 to buy it. They know how to lure consumers. In fact, the sole reason I'm getting Black 2 is because I want the free Deoxys before the end of May.




@Funny_Moblin Yep, like I said they are very recent games and black and white parts 1/2 are getting so much hype specially since there are events like the deoxys one you mentioned (thanks for the reminder that I have to download the bastard) so it would be stupid to block them for x/y which they won't do for the reasons you said hehe.



Funny_Moblin said:

@FOURSIDE_BOY Haha, yeah no problem. Makes sense. Too bad I didn't get the game earlier to get the previous rare Pokemon, but hey. At least I'll get a chance to get Deoxys, which I'm guessing is the most important out of all the recent downloadable legendary Pokemon.



Zombie_Barioth said:

Your aware that while Game Freak seems adament about keeping the main series games on handhelds, it was actually Genius Sonority who developed those for Nintendo right? We may not see another but they did well enough that colosseum got a sequel so I wouldn't exactly call them failures.

At this point handhelds are getting powerful enough that they won't need consoles for 3D Pokemon games anymore, and X & Y are proof. I'd actually be interesting to see weather or not a colloseum/XD sequel would do much better as a handheld game.

I already now some details!!!
The new region is called Yoma, and they are going to show a image of the region.
Also they are going to reveal the professor that is called Rango who has a new little fish pokémon with him.They are going to show the rival, the protagonists and some images of the game.In the end they are going to reveal the new type that is Fairy Type. Also they all show info about this type and only pokémon with the magical charm quote will get this type.
Clefairy and many others change the type to fairy, also pokemon with fairy type gets new evolution like dunsparce etc..
Sylveon,Xerneas, and other NEW Pokémon show as fairy in the 6 gen games.Yveital is confirmed that is Dark/Flying.Also they reveal the starters evolutions and that is it.



GamerZack87 said:

A revelation of Sylveon being Bug-type!
The name of the new region featured in the games!
The apparent news that Fantina, as well as the chefs aboard the S.S. Anne, are from said region!

This is my lis(t)!




@Zombie_Barioth Yeah, I knew that it wasn't game freak but nonetheless it was published by nintendo, so what I meant is that they seem to learn from that and they kinda stopped doing that. I really didn't like the games because they didn't have that special pokemon feel the handheld versions have but I agree that handhelds are getting more and more powerful so launching pokemon on a console seems to be redundant by now.
