Pokemon RPG/Games (Pokemon X and Y)Edit
Pokémon X and Pokémon Y (ポケットモンスター X・Y Poketto Monsutā Ekkusu & Wai?) are role-playing video games developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. They are the first installments in the sixth generation of the Pokémon series of role-playing games. First announced on January 8, 2013, by Satoru Iwata through a special Nintendo Direct, both X and Y were released worldwide on October 12, 2013, making them the first Nintendo-published retail games to have such a global simultaneous release in all key regions. As with previous installments, each game follows the journey of a young Pokémon trainer (and the trainer's friends) as they train Pokémon. This time, the game takes place in the Kalos region—based on France—with the object of the game being to thwart the schemes of the nefarious criminal organization Team Flare, all while attempting to challenge the Pokémon League Champion. X and Y introduced 70 new Pokémon species, and includes new features such as the new Fairy type, character customization, updated battle and training mechanics, and completely rendered polygonal 3D graphics (as opposed to the sprites used in previous generations). A new form of Pokémon evolution, known as "Mega Evolution," allows players to further evolve many species of fully evolved Pokémon, with 30 evolutions currently available. Both titles are independent of each other, but feature largely the same plot, and while either can be played separately, trading Pokémon between the two games is, as with past titles, necessary in order for a player to obtain every Pokémon species. Upon release, X and Y received critical acclaim from critics who praised the advancements in the gameplay and the large innovation that they brought to the franchise. The games were highly anticipated and were a commercial success, selling four million copies worldwide in the first weekend, beating Black and White's record and making them the fastest selling games on the 3DS. and have since sold over 12 million copies as of April 2014, becoming the best-selling games on the system.
