Sky Battles, Horde Encounters Introduced in Pokémon X & Y Version

Continuing from the E3 reveal of the new Fairy-type Pokémon, here are more updates for the latest installments of the Pokémon game franchise, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. This includes new monsters and battle encounters!

First off, we go to the newly introduced Pokémon. Talonflame, the evolution of Fletching, is a fire flying Pokémon that focuses on its speed, and knows Brave Bird. Skrelp is a Poison and Water-type Pokémon, and can learn Sludge Bomb. And Clauncher is a Water-type Pokémon that can learn Crabhammer.




Additionally, Rhyhorn will be a Riding Pokémon, similar to that of Gogoat, and best used for rocky areas.

Pokémon X & Y Version will also be introducing two new types of Pokémon encounters, Sky Battles and Horde Encounters. Eligible for Sky Battles are Flying-types and Pokémon that uses Levitate. Meanwhile, Horde Encounters happen when you meet more than one wild Pokémon species along the way, which can lead in to 5-in-1 battle.

Pokémon X & Y players are able to choose between languages in the game itself: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, or Korean. PSS (Player Search System) will allow players to search for others locally or globally (via Wi-Fi) to battle and trade. Split into Friends, Acquaintances and those you Pass By. They can then be promoted all the way up to friends as you interact and can hold up to 100 friends.

Nintendo also stated that they are working on a "backward compatibility".

Pokémon X & Pokémon Y will be available for the Nintendo 3DS, and are scheduled to be released worldwide this October 12th.

    I personally like the way it's going so far with the general game design. I showed a friend one of this game's previews and they said that the 3D animation was not "at standard" to what they could have done. I disagree mainly because if I am right, they are thinking of the 3D presented the Pokemon GameCube and Wii games. Some of these Pokemon in the games just did not look good with the 3D animation. This game retains the slight 2Dness that makes me think that these characters look good.

    OMG YES!!!

    I kept wondering about the introduction of things like sky battles since Gen 4 and to actually have it is awesome!!!

    If only they could do sky routes as well so when you use 'fly' it doesn't take 2.5 seconds to move from place to place.

    *The Axew all evolve into Haxorus*
    Chespin: ...crap...
