Pokémon X/Y represent one of the largest steps the franchise has taken since its beginnings. The main game mode is not only vast, but fun. Anyone who gets through the initial portion of the game will found a deep and complex RPG experience and a rich competitive side that is more accessible than ever. It doesn't matter if they are veterans or newcomers; every 3DS owner need this game.
The main series of Pokemon games have never suffered from not being re-playable. It is part of why Pokemon games have a higher resale value than some others. The truly dedicated players out there keep every copy of Pokemon that they have obtained, which makes for slim pickings in the pre-owned Pokemon inventory of some stores. Perhaps the two biggest selling points of Pokemon X & Y are the over 60 new Kalos region Pokemon and the mega evolutions. The increased size of the Pokedex appeals to the collectors while the mega evolutions appeal to the competitive players. All in all, these games are worthy of a Pokemon player's attention.
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.
Pokémon X and Y are the best Pokémon versions ever made. The new 3D graphics are astounding and the nostalgia effect when playing many of the most famous first/second generation Pokémon is overwhelming. The ultimate evolution of the series, a new standard for every Pokémon game to come.
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.
Despite welcoming Pokemon into the 3D world, Pokemon Y fails to take the challenge seriously. Unnoteworthy characters, a terrible bad guy team, muted ambiance, and a bare-bones narrative culminate in a title better left unplayed among plenty of others that came before and after it.
SummaryPokemon X and Y are the first mainline Pokemon games made for the 3DS and feature a mix of Pokemon old and new as well as a trio of new starting Pokemon - a watery toad Froakie, a fiery deer Fennekin, and a grass monster Chespin.
