The day has finally come, PokÃ©mon trainers! After a long wait for PokÃ©mon to arrive on the 3DS in all its creature-catching glory, and after days of waiting for an announcement we were told would come today, we finally have what we were all waiting for. Is it a PokÃ©mon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald remake? How about the rumored PokÃ©mon Rainbow? Nope and nay. Today marks the official announcement of PokÃ©mon's 6th generation with PokÃ©mon X Version and PokÃ©mon Y Version for the Nintendo 3DS.
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata gave the big reveal in a pretty short, yet very big, Nintendo Direct broadcast called PokÃ©mon Direct. But the announcement was more than just a reveal. Here, have a look at the new starters, as well as one of the generation's legendaries:
Oh, and before I forget, there's also a trailer. Check out the official PokÃ©mon Direct video and you will see it:
As you can see, PokÃ©mon X and Y utilizes the 3DS in such a way that has caused a transformation for the series, or rather an evolution. With enhanced visuals, new game mechanics, and, of course, a bunch of new PokÃ©mon, trainers everywhere have good reason to get excited. And as a first for the series, PokÃ©mon X and Y will be releasing worldwide this October. Gotta catch 'em all!
