New Pokemon X and Y Information Revealed
Some new information has recently been released about the upcoming additions to the popular Pokemon franchise, Pokemon X and Y.
It has been revealed that Professor Sycamore from the games does not just give players one of the new three starter Pokemon; he will also allow players to choose from the original three starter Pokemon from Pokemon Red and Blue as well. In addition to being able to obtain the classic starters, each one of them will have a Mega Evolution as well, granting these beloved Mons overwhelming power in battle.
It has also been revealed that Mega Evolution does not just require a Mega Stone to work. Players will need to find a bracelet known as the Mega Ring which holds a Key Stone within it; the Key Stone will resonate with the Mega Stone to trigger Mega Evolution.
There is also a new feature known as â€œPokemon Bank.â€ The Pokemon Bank is a Nintendo 3DS app that allows players to store up to 3,000 of their Pokemon on the Internet. Players will not only be able to store much more Pokemon in addition to the storage boxes given to them from the Pokemon Center PCs, they will also be able to deposit and withdraw Pokemon from multiple copies of Pokemon X and Y. Players can also make use of a linked app, â€œPokemon Transporter,â€ for easy transportation of Pokemon between games. Note that there will be an annual fee when using the Pokemon Bank.
Pokemon X and Y will see worldwide release for the Nintendo 3DS on October 12, 2013.
