Pokemon Video Series Presentation

While Nintendo's marketing for Pokémon X & Y has featured the usual excitable adverts and footage, with the games now released the company has taken a step back to present a Pokémon Series Showcase.

For those new to Pokémon or perhaps too young to have been around since the earliest days of the franchise on the Game Boy, this serves as a useful crash-course in the history of the core series. Even veterans may like gawking at the crisp copies, gameplay footage and listening to the bombardment of retro music, as the enthusiastic presenter provides a decent walkthrough.

It's all presented from the neat Pokémon display area of the Nintendo World Store in New York, so check it out and let us know what you think.
