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

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!

I took one look at the Legendary from Pokemon X, Xerneas, and fell in love. Its just like when I saw Reshiram for the first time. Most definitely buying the game when it comes out.
