Like the customizing your character, horde battles, a closer look at sky battles and the PSS (Player Search System).

New Pokemon X and Y Info

It seems that E3 has opened the flood gates of news for Pokemon X and Y. According to the official Pokemon Website players will  start in Vaniville Town and will head toward Santalune City, where they will battle the first Gym Leader Viola. The website doesn’t say what type of leader Viola is, but from the looks of the gym I would guess she is a bug type gym leader.

The site also details a group of friends you will encounter frequently throughout your adventure. Shauna, Tierno, Trevor and the male or female counterpart to your character, who will all have their own Pokemon and Pokedexes. Several new Pokemon are also detailed, including Litleo, Flabebe, Scatterbug and Spewpa, which you can see in the trailer below. Pokemon X and Y are shaping up very nicely and I can easily say I’m excited for whatever more info they throw our way.

Full details on the Pokemon website.
