Over the recent special Nintendo Direct Broadcast, they announced the new 3DS Pokemon games Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, which are the first games for generation 6!  These will be the first core handheld pokemon games to be done completely in 3D, featuring cel shaded graphics retain the style of the previous games.   In the ad, 5 new pokemon were introduced; they are Chespin, Fenniken (my favorite!), and Froakie which are the starters, as well as the two unnamed legendary mascots.  One of these looks like a bird with horns and a long tail and the other looks like an elk with huge antlers shining with the seven colors of the rainbow.  To make things even better though, this game will be released in October 2013 not only for Japan, but for the Americas, Europe, and Australia as well!

I couldn't be more excited for these games!  I love how the games look so far, and I even liked all the Pokemon designs.  What about you guys?  Are you as excited as I am?  Do you like the designs?

**UPDATE: The names of the two legendaries have been announced.  They are Xerneas (the deer) and Yveltal (the bird).**

Can't wait for the new games! I'm getting Y. I hope the starters all have dual type evolutions, something like this: Fire/Psychic, Grass/Dark, Water/Fighting. That way they would all be sort of even with each other which I think would make battles quite challenging/interesting amongst them. XD

• New Pokemon (again!)
• New Adventure (again!)
• Being released WorldWide on the same day. (Yes! Finally!)

Bad News:

Pokemon Y is for me, that bird dragon thing will be mine and I shall call him Fluffy, Destroyer of Worlds! (Mainly Fluffy since the other part won't fit in the name blocks XD )

I really want Fenniken, I love Fennec foxes sooo much and he's so cute!

I just need to get a 3Ds and I'll be fine~ Thank goodness my birthday is before October!

When i saw the trailer this morning, I thought the 3D looked like absolute crap.

Its growing on me now. But I think they need to clean up the 3D some more, and not make the main players look so... desu desu.

I now have to buy a 3DS though... but that can wait AFTER Tekkoshocon.

I just got into the poke fandom and there's already another generation?! Whoa! Hold your horses, still haven't finished Black and Black 2 yet... Anyway, I'm considering to buy a 3DS to play this game, of course, if there's a emulator by then, the better. And lastly, nintendo better implement a way for Gen V pokemon to be transferred or many people will be likely unhappy...

Can't wait to see the full evolutions for the new starters. As of now I'm so choosing the fire starter unless the the grass starter can win me over with an awesome final evolution and good moves that it can learn over time. Not so impressed with the water starter, however...

I heard the starters have two types each, so its
fire/psychic
grass/dark
water/psychic

That makes it fair for one to have the advantage over the other two, just like in Sinnoh, where the starters are
fire/fighting
grass/ground
water/steel

...YES!!!!
OUT OF PIXELS FOR GOOD!

The secondary types (if any) haven't been confirmed yet, but if would make sense if they did like you said. I just hope they don't give us another fire/fighting type again, although given the design I don't think that's likely.

And yes! Finally in the third dimension! :iconlatiasyayplz:

If it IS true that the games are coming out everywhere in October, then that's ten months too long!!!!
I saw the protaganists, and man they look cool, and I saw this pic where the male protagonist is in front of a mirror, sugessting that you're able to change clothes, but I'm not quite sure...
This game's gonna be epic, but what about Sapphire/Ruby remakes?

Satoru Iwata (the president of Nintendo) said himself in the Nintendo Direct that they'd all be coming out in October. :)
As for the Ruby/Saphire remakes, still don't know about that. :/

Yay, so it is official!

NOOOOOOO! Still no remakes of Ruby/Sapphire, what the heck, they're good at a lot of things, including delays of various stuff, WHY NINTENDO, WHY????!!!!!
