X and Y: 6th generation is here!

Turns out that the Pokémon Company announcement was not limited to Japan. Broadcast worldwide, Nintendo Direct let the Pokéfans local and abroad know that a new generation is nigh, the sixth. These games introduce, along with new Pokémon, a new dimension; they were designed specifically for the Nintendo 3DS system. Ergo, they will not play on a Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi. Hopefully, this generation will stay true to the standards, re-introducing and/or upgrading concepts discovered in old games and truely recalling memories lost in time. What better motivation for buying a Nintendo 3DS than to purchase an item that will fill voids in the hearts of many? It also seems that the Pokémon Company has gained a bevy of new-found creativity, due to the fact that the upcoming versions are named “Pokémon X” and “Pokémon Y”, not named after a color on the rainbow.

Further information on the new Pokémon, including the Starters (Chespin, a Grass-type; Fennekin, a Fire-type; and Froakie, a Water-type) and Legendaries (Xerneas and Yveltal), was announced in a video on the Official Pokémon YouTube Channel. Also, these games will be available for purchase worldwide in October, making them not only the first-ever 3D games, but the first games to stray from the traditional localization factor. Concerning the retail price, I imagine that $34.99 will be the price, due to the last three pairs of games being available for the same amount.
