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.
