Out of the many franchises in all of gaming, Pokemon has got to be one of the biggest. Game after game, fans just flock over, excited for each and every single new title; man, that's passion. But with Pokemon X & Y, Nintendo has gone above and beyond, jamming all sorts of new features into the game that anyone who has played versions Red and Blue 15 years ago couldn't imagine would happen.
So far, the game isn't even out and already, it has 1.26 million pre-orders in Japan alone. I'm sure North America has double that if not more. Since players have the ability to transfer your Pokemon from previous titles like Black & White via Pokemon Bank (available for 3DS), it makes starting a new Poketitle much more enticing, especially for hardcore trainers. On top of that, the game is as close to 3D action as you'll get in a handheld title -- personally, I can't wait to see the all new air battles which is something I've thought about for quite some time.
Pokemon X & Y launches world wide on October 12th along with the all new Nintendo 2DS -- for those not interested in 3D. You can get it early if you head down to the live launch event at Nintendo World in New York on the 11th. If you're excited for Pokemon, let us know what you're excited msot about and what team you'll be supporting! As for me... #TeamFroakie.
