Pokemon X and Y Trailer Reveals Some Version Exclusives

| 13 Jul 2013 02:16

Pokemon X and Y's latest trailer also reveals the new "evil organization" in the upcoming RPG: Team Flare.

The latest Pokemon X and Y trailer from the Pokemon company summarizes a bunch of new information we've had trickled to us over the week - new Pokemon (including some version exclusives), the new "evil organization" and the new professor. First up, the previously revealed Clauncher is exclusive to Pokemon X while its counterpart Skrelp is exclusive to Pokemon Y. New reveals Swirlix, the while cotton candy-like Pokemon is a Pokemon X exclusive, while Spritzee, the pink bird-beaked Pokemon will only appear in Pokemon Y. Both of these new Pokemon are of the new Fairy type.

Other new Pokemon revealed this week were Pangoro, the evolution of Pancham, a Panda-like fighting/dark Pokemon that would make Jack Black proud, as well as Inkay and it's evolution Malamar, which are squid-like dark/psychic Pokemon. The new "evil organization" will be called Team Flare, and the new professor is the rather suave looking Professor Sycamore.

Also revealed was the game's StreetPass and SpotPass feature: the Holo Caster. You can get reports about the people you have passed by using StreetPass on your Holo Caster, and you can also receive SpotPass news bulletins about Pokemon X and Y, such as information on upcoming competitions.

Another cool new feature of the game's multiplayer component is the "Wonder Trade," which allows you to trade any Pokemon for a random Pokemon that someone else is offering. I'm sure 9/10 times it will be a Bidoof, but here's hoping there's some restrictions to actually make it worthwhile.

Lastly, the game will feature "Photo Spots," which will allow players to take screenshots in some specific locations with the ingame camera and upload them to their Pokemon Global Link webpage.

Pokemon X and Y will be released worldwide on October 12th.
