Pok?mon X and Pok?mon Y for the Nintendo 3DS are scheduled for an October release.

When Pok?mon fans begin their thrilling 3D adventure in Pok?mon X or Pok?mon Y this October, they will be transported into an entirely new region called Kalos. A mysterious place that is shaped like a star, Kalos is a region where players will encounter beautiful forests, thriving cities, and many never-before-seen Pok?mon. The central city of this breathtaking region is Lumiose City, a metropolis featuring a tower that is set to become an iconic structure in Pok?mon X and Pok?mon Y.

While exploring the Kalos region, Trainers will encounter many new Pok?mon that they can battle, catch, and add to their Pok?dex. A Trainer is only as good as the Pok?mon he or she befriends. Seven new Pok?mon debuting in Pok?mon X and Pok?mon Y were introduced earlier this year?and today, four additional Pok?mon are being revealed for the first time. These Pok?mon add to the more than 640 Pok?mon that have been encountered in previous games.

  • The cowardly Pok?mon Helioptile, a Normal- and Electric-type Pok?mon, 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 Pok?mon, 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 Pok?mon 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 Pok?mon in a Trainer?s party during battle.
  • Pok?mon X and Pok?mon Y introduce a new method of transportation?riding the brand-new Pok?mon, Gogoat. This large Grass-type Pok?mon 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.

These brand-new Pok?mon and others caught in the Kalos region will be added to a player?s Pok?dex that, for the first time, will be divided into three unique areas within the region. There is much to explore in the Kalos region, and many Pok?mon to encounter when Pok?mon X and Pok?mon Y debut worldwide this October. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months!
