“Pokemon X And Y” Goes Old School

Pokemon X and Y

In a surprising twist announced this morning during a special Nintendo Direct presentation, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y players will not receive Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie from Professor Sycamore but are in fact given the choice of a classic Pokémon – BulbasaurCharmander, or Squirtle – from the very first Pokémon games, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. 

Adding to the excitement, once a player has evolved thier Pokémon into Venusaur, Charizard, or Blastoise and obtained its unique Mega Stone, the Pokémon will be able to Mega Evolve while in battle. Mega VenusaurMega Charizard, and Mega Blastoise will possess overwhelming powers never before seen in a Pokémon game.

Players can choose fan favorite Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle when “Pokémon X” and “Pokémon Y” launch worldwide October 12, 2013, for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
