New Pokémon X And Pokémon Y Trailer Summarizes The Latest Features

By Sato . July 3, 2013 . 11:10pm

The Pokémon Company shared plenty of new Pokémon X and Pokémon Y info during E3 last month, including a fourth gameplay trailer detailed the game’s characters, setting and Pokémon. In addition, they also demonstrated how 3D models are created for the new games and more during a Pokémon developer discussion. The latest trailer doesn’t show anything new, but it gives us a closer look at the latest features that have been revealed thus far.



The trailer starts out with a look at the different protagonist appearance choices you’ll get to make and the many friends who’ll be traveling with you in Pokémon X and Y’s Kalos region. The next part gives us another look at the new battle styles in the all new horde encounters and sky battles, including a look at the new Fairy type Pokémons who’ll be effective against Dragons.


We also get a closer look at the Player Search System (PSS), which will be making it easier for players to find other trainers to play with through local wireless or internet connection. Finally, the trailer gives us a peek at the recently announced “Xerneas-Yveltal Blue” special 3DS XL system.


Check out our earlier reports for further details on the new features:

  • Highasthesky

    Battle music sucks…..

    • Go2hell66

      Im sure the gym and trainer battle ones will be better

      • Highasthesky

        Yea i don’t doubt that, and maybe the wild battle theme will grow on me.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      What about Hoen’s wild battle theme? aw yeah
      Well I think I heard an electric guitar. Might be too early to judge just yet.

      • Highasthesky

        I’m not referring to any wild battle theme expect for the one in this trailer.

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          nah I just wanted your opinion on Hoen’s wild battle theme :D

          • Highasthesky

            Oh well then, ITS SICK!! the third gen Pokemon games were the first games i ever played and love the hell out of the music :D

    • PlatinumMad

      Is the best one since the GameCube games IMO

    • LinkofCourage

      You should probably wait until the theme is isolated before passing judgment.

    • Suicunesol

      These things usually grow on us over time. Our feelings might change once we’ve heard the music in context.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      we couldn’t even hear it that well

      • Go2hell66

        it was a pretty big chunk of music and i could hear it just fine

    • Malon

      WITH ALL THE DUE RESPECT, I actually like it.

    • There was battle music lol?

    • roydgriffin

      The thing that bothers me, is that it seems very short.
      It seems to loop at 45 seconds.
      For a game, where I will supposedly put hundreds of hours into this seems very repeating… We will see.

    • supervamp

      It sounds like every pokemon battle theme song.

  • AndyLC

    Yveltall Blue!

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      I’m having a nostalgia overload right now… no more haha.

      My only regret is that I have but one upvote to give Weltall.

    • Ni

      Clever have this upvote
      So Id is training the red Yvetall?

  • JustThisOne

    Yesss! I can wear a different hat!

    • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

      Your hair can also be purple.

  • Spider-Man

    Still can’t believe we’ve moved to 3D battles. And on a handheld nonetheless. I’ve waited so long for this. The only time I got an enjoyable 3D experience was in Colosseum and Gale of Darkness.

    Stadium games were cool, and I like to forget about Battle Revolution. No longer do I have to go to consoles just for 3D Pokemon battles. If a 3D Pokemon game was made for Wii U I would have gotten one, like I got a Wii, Gamecube and N64 for my 3D Pokemon needs.

    Got my copy of Y pre-ordered, now to play the waiting game.

  • Godman

    Ever since I was a child I’ve always wanted a true Pokemon game to play in 3D, Colosseum and XD came close, but it wasn’t enough, didn’t like the only capturing shadow pokemon idea.

    Then Battle Revolution brought in a character creator and it was meh, but the closest thing to being your own trainer.

    Now this Gen brings the best of those games into another world of Pokemon and much more! Trainer customization is long overdue, though I am disappointed they didn’t go more in-depth in explaining the TC in this trailer, I have faith it will be satisfactory(Just want to remove the hat).

    I’m going to pre-order Pokemon Y soon, I am NOT missing out

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      uh yes you can remove the hat

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      I want my pokemon WiiU Action RPG

  • NightzeroAX

    I don’t like what I hear when it comes to the battle theme. I hope this soundtrack is better than B&Ws

  • Suicunesol

    There’s a date of August 10th, 2013 at the end of the trailer. Does anybody know what it’s for?

    • Sato

      It’s the date they’ll start accepting pre-orders in Japan :)

      • Renaldi Saputra

        I see

      • Suicunesol

        Dammit, thank you. Was hoping for something like a “demo” release date.

  • Kai2591

    can’t wait! xD

  • *Slow Clap, and tears*
    We’ve come a long way Pokemon, a very long way.

    I’ve been playing Pokemon since the originals came out back in 1998. Damn, I’m old lol

    • Alestaos

      Heh i know how you feel :) 22here and i still have the need to catch them all since the originals. Pokemon has come a long way and we all should be excited. Gonna turn out to be a good gen imo

      • I think so too. This gen is looking very nice =)

      • Vash bane

        this is one of the reasons I come to this site I like to hear the fans all excited <3

  • New sword pkmn has odin rune on it’s sheath

  • Alexander Marquis Starkey

    Nooo! Your doing it wrong! You don’t rub Snorlax’s head! YOU RUB DAT GIANT BELLY OF HIS!

  • Musashi234

    Damn man to see Pokemon evolve from Red & blue to now this makes me happy I’m a Pokemon Trainer!

  • Göran Isacson

    Got to admit I still don’t get how sky battles are different from regular battles, but that aside all the things in this trailer makes my mouth water.

  • As Reggie would say:
    My body is ready.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    3 months left

  • Maumac77

    It’s great to see something similar to what was in Dream Drop Distance. Actually really enjoyed that part of the game xD

  • Guest

    X and Y looks really awesome and all, but i have to say the new male protagonist visual is the worst ever, it makes me want to play with the girl

  • Guest

    X and Y looks really awesome and all, but i have to say the new male protagonist visual is soooo bad. the worst imo, makes me want to play with the girl……

  • Raltrios

    Are those three options the only choices for appearance we get? I mean, it’s still a nice step forward, but I expected more…

    Also, that music was kind of generic. There haven’t been many highlights in the music aspect of Pokemon for a while now, at least in Gen 5. I mean, Champion Alder’s theme was boring, Plasma got annoying (though the BW2 remix was better), that sort of thing. Nothing really stood out.
    When you look at Gen 4 you’ve got Cynthia’s fantastic blood-boiling battle music (plus her piano intro) and the wild Ho-oh’s intense traditional music with the awesome uberdrums. Lugia’s was generic, though.
    I imagine I’ll get used to this, but yeah, I’m of the opinion that Gens 3 and 2 had the best music. Plenty of standouts in those games.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      BW2 has some great tracks. Fight more legendaries you lazy shits!

  • Vash bane

    im going to set out on a new adventure too :D
    (to get some money for a 3ds and this =w=)

  • Jon

    Someone probably mentioned this, but everyone saw the new type added right? Sounded like “Fairy” Type, then gave four examples of it.

    • miju

      Did you like not watch the Nintendo E3 Direct? Fairy type has been known for like nearly a month already.

  • My only complaint is that I want to be a girl with black hair, pale skin, and blue eyes. This character customization is a start, I suppose…

    Pokemon has come so far since R/B/G/Y and thinking about it makes me feel old.
