The first 3DS Pokémon adventures have been announced! After Black 2 and White 2 providing a fitting swan song for the original DS, it’s time to move onto fresh pastures – namely in the form of Pokémon X and Y. These will be two new main Pokémon games, destined to arrive in October of this year.
Here’s the announcement video:

Obviously this is very exciting. Not only because a new Pokémon adventure is always something to look forward to and sure to provide a fun experience but because here the team at Game Freak are working with whole new tech with lots of possibilities. From the clip you can see that battles are going to be much more interesting to watch, taking on a quasi-Pokémon Stadium style vibe. We’ll forget about the fact the new Grass starter, Chespin, appears to be fighting a Magikarp on land.
The three starter Pokémon are revealed here with the fashionable chipmunk with a hat, Chespin, the funky fox, Fennekin and finally the oddly fluffy frog Froakie. Of course they have all of the charm typical of the Pokémon games (Garbodor you’re not welcome here).
This looks to be the first true 3D Pokémon adventure, with all of the classic mechanics. Colosseum and Gale of Darkness had their own unique spin on things but X and Y look to be delivering the experience fans have been clamoring for for years!
