    Bigger, better, stronger and prettier than anything we've ever seen with the label "Pokémon" on the cover.

    Pokemon X and Y made me feel like I was back on the middle school playground, vying for real-life superiority in battle and communing in trade. I didn't think games could still make me feel that way — but I'm so glad to be proven wrong.

    New Pokémon games often introduce minor features like this but they often feel like slim justification for a new game, and are abandoned the instant a new sequel comes out. Most of X and Y’s new ideas are more substantial, or at least more fun, and help to cement this as the definitive Pokémon game of the modern age.

    Pokémon X & Y do not change the formula of the series but has undoubtedly modified some bases already established. Never before has there been so many novelties to come at once and this is precisely why you will want to play it.
  5. 3D Visuals transformed the classic Pokemon approach in a good way. Online capabilities are top notch, this new generation will really make Pokemon fans happy.

    Pokémon X & Y celebrate the transition to a full 3D world. And it's a strong success. Kalos is even more alive, gains volume and credibility. The battles improve too, the creatures have never been so real, so well-animated. This and only this can make you buy those games. On the other hand, Pokémon is still the same title, and X & Y keep making the gameplay evolve little by little.

    There’s a good game in Pokemon Y, and fans looking for another game near-identical to the ones before it likely won’t find issue with a lot of the dusty trimmings and transparent battle system. If you want to get into into the new stat rebuilding features and grind out tons of easy battles to prep for high-level online multiplayer, it’s never been easier to do so. But for all else, the game’s excellent visuals belie the frustratingly old-fashioned design. RPG folk can find better times on their 3DS.

Play this game even if you have to literally steal a 3DS and the game. A perfectly realized world that's immersive and tactical. There's near endless replay value and a slew of new Pokémon that make the game better overall. You owe it to yourself to plan this game. If you've never played a Pokémon game before, this is the perfect gateway drug (I mean game). Expand

    Librar tu primera batalla en esta entrega es como haberlo hecho por primera vez; los gráficos, sonidos, efectos y escenarios hacen de PokémonLibrar tu primera batalla en esta entrega es como haberlo hecho por primera vez; los gráficos, sonidos, efectos y escenarios hacen de Pokémon Y una aventura totalmente renovada y con una esencia diferente. Las nuevas criaturas, el nuevo tipo hada, las mega-evoluciones, el efecto 3D, la jugabilidad en línea, el Friend Safari, el Super Entrenamiento y el Poké-Recreo logran hacer de esta entrega la evolución más grande en toda la serie no sólo por el potencial gráfico de la consola, sino por la gran cantidad de mejoras en su gameplay, y es que son tantas las innovaciones que es fácil no saber qué hacer durante tus primeros pasos por Kalos. Otra cuestión interesante es el ideal del equipo enemigo, que aunque un poco distorsionado, mal planteado y a veces incomprensible, nos hace reflexionar de la realidad del mundo actual en el que vivimos. Como puntos a restar están los lags al activar el efecto 3D, la pobre dificultad de los líderes de gimnasio, tus amigos/rivales, la elite four y la campeona, y algunos bugs muy graves. También es de considerar que el juego no tiene tanta jugabilidad pos-juego como Black/White 2.
    En conclusión estamos frente a la mejor generación de Pokémon, con personajes muy sólidos, diseños extraordinarios, grandes implementaciones al gameplay como lo son el tipo hada, las megaevoluciones y los ajustes en algunas habilidades que hacen al juego más competitivo y equilibrado. Si la saga sigue puliéndose podríamos estar cerca de jugar una verdadera obra maestra en las próximas entregas.

The story is short, the enemy team is a joke, the plot is too cliché and the dificulty has fallen down gretly, making this game a departure form Black and White and B/W 2. But, in the other hand the game is more directed towards competitive gaming and that is vital in Super Training and in the more options towards playing with people all around the world, and I have a soft spot for Pokémon and the competitive.
