Pokemon Direct has ended a little while ago, and in it Pokemon X and Pokemon Y were announced as the Generation VI games. First and foremost, the main character has an anime look, similar to games like Tales of Xilia. The world is in full 3D and the game is for the 3DS. Also, it appears as though your character has roller skates instead of a bike. The starters were revealed to be Chespin the grass type, Fennekin the fire type, and Froakie the water type. Sprites have been replaced with 3D models for battles and it illustrates that old pokemon from the previous generations will appear in these games. Two of the legends appear too, both unnamed so far. The first is a flying demon/falcon creature. The other is a deer like creature with rainbow antlers. The games will be released in all markets in October of 2013.

At this point, the games look good, but that is to be expected from a reveal trailer. As a huge fan of Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, I find this as good news because I hope to see the Hoenn Region rendered to full 3D. Now, it is time to buy a 3DS and wait the 10 long months for the game to come out.
