Pokemon X/Y Nintendo Direct round-up

Pokemon X/Y Nintendo Direct round-up

You’re in for a treat.

It’s no news Nintendo managed to get my excitement through the ceiling once more. MegaEvolutions, 2 starters, Special Edition 3DS coming to North America and Europe. But let’s pick them all, one by one.

Pokemon Bank

You like Pokemon? You like clouds? Then, you’ll love the Pokemon Bank! 100 boxes, up to 3,000 Pokemon online; the Pokemon Bank is the Pokemon Cloud, if you’d like, where you can store Pokemon from Black, Black 2, White, White 2, X, and Y, and transfer between the generations easily, with no second 3DS system required. At last! It will come with an annual fee, though it wasn’t specified.

Two starters

Yes, you read that right. Your best friend will give you either a Chespin, a Fennekin or a Froakie, while the professor will give you a Bulbasaur, a charmander or a Squirtle, all three of the latter have confirmed MegaEvolutions, and many more are to come. I don’t know about you, but this has made me a happy human.


Pokemon X and Y-themed Nintendo 3DS XL’s

No reason to be jealous of Japan anymore; North America and Europe are finally getting the Xerneas and Yveltal-adorned Nintendo 3DS XL’s on September 27th. Prices not announced.3ds-xl-xy
