    All-new Pokémon and past favorites come to life with detailed graphics and intense 3D battles. Become a Pokémon Trainer and set out for adventure in a visually stunning new region filled with new Pokémon to catch, trade, and battle. In Pokémon-Amie, you can pet, feed, and play with your Pokémon to form a deeper bond, which may benefit you in future battles. Plus, you can connect and communicate with players around the world at any time to challenge them to a battle, trade Pokémon, and much more.

    Please note: a new system update on December 12, 2013 fixes an internet communication issue and occasional bugs that cause Pokemon not to learn new moves after evolving through Wonder Trade, and where certain captions for Trainer PR Videos were not unlocked in Lumiose City. This update also fixes a previous bug related to resuming your game after saving in Lumiose City, and updates the filtering feature within the Global Trade Station.

    We strongly recommend that all Pokémon X and Pokémon Y players download and install this update data. Scan the QR Code pattern below using a Nintendo 3DS system while connected to the internet. The update data for Pokémon X differs from that of Pokémon Y, so make sure you scan the QR Code for the version of the game you own.

    An all-new 3D Pokémon adventure packed with never-before-seen Pokémon has launched! Pokémon X and Pokémon Y presents a new generation of Pokémon and introduces players to an exciting new adventure in a breathtaking 3D world.

    You'll be able to go on your journey as a boy or a girl, and you can choose how your hero looks overall! Find a look that suits you, and then set off on your travels!

    Your adventure takes place in the expansive Kalos region, where you'll explore cities, meet people, and encounter many Pokémon. Don't miss Lumiose City, the central hub of the region, where you'll return many times on your journey.

    Look for all-new Fairy-type Pokémon, the first new Pokémon type since Dark-type and Steel-type Pokémon were introduced almost a decade ago. Fairy-type moves are super effective against Dragon-type Pokémon. One such Fairy-type Pokémon to meet is Sylveon, the new evolved form of Eevee!

    All-new battle formats are fun for new players and Pokémon pros. Sky Battles feature duels between Pokémon that can fly, and Horde encounters are massive competitions where one of your Pokémon faces many wild Pokémon at once! These new modes will challenge every Pokémon Trainer.

    In addition to new battle types, you can also care for your Pokémon with the Pokémon-Amie feature. Feed, pet, and play with your Pokémon to increase your bond. The more you play with your Pokémon, the friendlier they'll become—and perhaps perform better for you in battle.

    Around the Kalos region, you'll meet a lot of people. First there's the brilliant Professor Sycamore. He's researching Pokémon, and he's looking to you and your friends for help. He may even challenge you to a battle from time to time. But you're also likely to encounter members of the mysterious organization Team Flare. What they're up to is anyone's guess.

    In Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, some Pokémon will tap into powers long dormant. This special kind of Evolution is called Mega Evolution. In addition to far greater strength, Mega-Evolved Pokémon may also see their Ability change, or even their type!

    There's a new method of Pokémon training: Super Training! With Super Training, it’s not your Pokémon’s level that goes up but its base stats, the underlying values that define your Pokémon's skills in battle. These base stats could be increased using items and other methods in previous Pokémon titles, but in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, you'll be able to raise them far more easily than ever before, thanks to Super Training.

    The all-new Player Search System (PSS) gives you all kinds of new ways to interact with other players. With the PSS, you can battle and trade with players around the world, as well as share O-Powers, special abilities that will temporarily enhance certain gameplay aspects. And the Holo Caster feature of the PSS lets you trade messages with faraway Trainers and receive Pokémon X and Pokémon Y news bulletins.

    The Pokémon Global Link has been completely redesigned to be easier and more fun to use! Now, directly from the PGL homepage, see your game progress, enter Online Competitions, and more. You can even share a timeline of your adventures with your friends and the whole world!
