Oh yes!
Just what i wanted!
Brand new Pokemon RPG for the 3DS!!!

This looks so Amazing! X and Y is maybe a strangeist of the pokemon names (no longer named after colours or stones, but cells???)

So many great games this year for 3DS! :D

Well that was interesting. Looking forward to it now. I guessing the Pokemon X/Y is referring to male and female? maybe.
Imagine a really cool picture here.

They didn't make it clear whether this is a whole new generation in a new region, or just a few new Pokemon to be added in.

I can't believe we're already getting a brand new generation, I'm only just grinding through the national Pokedex on B/W2. Hats off to Nintendo for keeping it up their sleeve and a worldwide release date too, very impressive. Fire starter looks pretty good. And I wonder if 'X' and 'Y' has anything to do with gender, more alternate forms like Jellicent or the good ol' Nidoran's from Gen I! Let the speculation begin.

Short. Sweet. BUT AMAZING!!!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:
I knew they were going to announce Gen VI. Can't believe they are so far along with the games! They look amazing. If I'm correct, they switched to 3D models from Sprite based. While I've always loved sprite-based and would prefer it to stay but advance, I have to say the 3D models looked great.

That was AWESOME! :shock: GEN 6! Proved everyone wrong.

Didn't expect the graphics to be cellshaded, almost Dragon quest 9&10 look to it. It kinda works, especially for the pokemon themselves. The environments look abit meh though and the starters keep getting worse and worse.
It's still gunna be sick though.

Gen VI games, on 3DS, as expected from this much hype. You know what this means right...? Remakes on 3DS, with gen VI engine. I can see it now.

I'm just glad we are getting a proper Pokémon game for the 3DS.
The battles look amazing, no more sprites, which may be sad for some, but I am glad they have taken the leap (finally)

I know it is a long way off, but I do wish they announced more about the Wi-Fi features . I am very sure that there is going to be allot to do, so I am very excited.

Question is, do I just get 1 version (most likely Y for me) or get both (as I do have a couple of spare 3DSs hanging around)

Ahhh, I am so buzzing right now, this is what I have been waiting for the 3DS for a long time XD

I didn't watch the feed here, but watched the UK one. ONM you should have put the link to the Nintendo UK direct, the same one on the Nintendo UK website. The feed was awesome. Was constantly smiling during the whole history...so much love. And was constantly open mouthed in shock and awe when the announced it! Oh god, I'm so excited for October!! SO EXCITED!!! I want more info! AHHHH!! Fire starter for me...but then that was a given because I always use FIRE!

It looked like a whole new region to me. Wonder if it's in a "whole new place" again, so starting back at Route 1, or whether it will carry on after the numbering of Unova. Wonder what the region will be called. SO MANY QUESTIONS!

I'm thinking X any Y are to do with genders and DNA. It could be part of the story. Could have another DNA Pokémon. Those two legendary Pokémon looked amazing.

Going to pre order ASAP!

I think this game will make the 3DS sales do well Worldwide (As well as the soon to come out Animal Crossing)

This has to be the best year to get a 3DS if you don’t have one.

(My nephew is going to be so psyched when I tell him)
