As of  today, (January 8th 2013) it was announced that the latest game in the famed Pokemon franchise will be entitled “Pokemon X and Pokemon Y” which leans towards the “WTF!?” category.  For the better part of 20 years, Pokemon games were known with colors, while this one is straying from the norm. I’ve been playing Magic: The Gathering for so long when I think of X and Y I think of creatures power and toughness! I’m all for the progression of intellectual properties, but have GameFreak and Nintendo ran out of colors to use?  Alas, this is Pokemon’s first game exclusive for the Nintendo 3DS and is available WORLDWIDE in October 2013, without any announcement on weather or not the Global Link will be active after the games launch.


“The Pokémon Company and Nintendo announced today that the next generation of Pokémon video games, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, will launch worldwide in October for the Nintendo 3DS system. New Pokémon, a new storyline set in a spectacular 3D world, and dynamic battles instantly make Pokémon X and Pokémon Y two of the most highly anticipated video game titles of 2013.

“The worldwide launch of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y this October allows players to begin their adventures at the same time,” said Tsunekazu Ishihara, CEO of The Pokémon Company. “Now, Pokémon fans across the globe can discover the secrets of Pokémon games and can collect, battle, and trade with each other immediately.”

“We brought Pokémon into an entirely new dimension and we’re incredibly excited to bring Pokémon X and Pokémon Y  to fans,” said Junichi Masuda, video game director at GAME FREAK inc. “The stunning visuals, a completely redesigned environment, game scenario, music, and communication features will bring smiles to the faces of video game players around the world.”

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be the blueprint for an exciting array of new animation, Pokémon TCG, and toys debuting around the world.”
