Excerpt: I worked with my dad on a strategy to get through Pokemon X as quickly as possible. Find a good team, and stick with it. Do not waste time on collecting many Pokemon. That worked well and cut down game play time. Pokemon X and Pokemon Y is the biggest leap forward in the franchise for some time. Problem is Pokemon has consistently fallen behind over the years.
Conclusion: Pokemon X and Y are definitely two of the best games in the series to date. The new features are fun to play with (especially the PSS), and the Mega Evolutions and new Fariy-type changes things up with the type-matchups. Whether you’re a veteran or just starting your very first journey, Pokemon X and Y are definitely worth picking up.
Excerpt: The newest edition Pokemon game was hugely anticipated and at first glance, it’s easy to see why. Not only does it have gorgeous 3D graphics but with the first real customization options for your character it provides a whole new personal feel to the game, and with the “Pokemon Amie” feature that allows you to care for your pokemon it provides a way to create an emotional bond with your virtual companions.
Summary: Pokemon X/Y introduces a bunch of new features, some of which help streamline some things that took longer to do in previous games (such as Super Training), all wrapped up in a 3D package. However, the use of 3D is limited, and there’s framerate issues if you try to use it during battle. Even without 3D on, there’s slowdown in places, which is too bad since the graphics themselves look good.
Excerpt: Nintendo finally ran out of colours so it moved on to letters of the alphabet, but if you think this is because Gamefreak is running out of ideas for Pokémon, think again: Pokémon X feels fresh, fun and full of the solid game mechanics that has made Pokémon the most successful gaming franchise in history.
Excerpt: Pokemon X is one of two games in the sixth generation of the Pokmon franchise, the first generation to make the jump onto the Nintendo 3DS. Taking place in the new region of Kalos, players once again step into the shoes of a rookie Trainer who seeks to prove themselves by conquering the Pokemon League while also dealing with a new criminal organization known as Team Flare.
Excerpt: I've been waiting for this one for a long time. A Pokefan ever since Nintendo Power sent me the VHS of the first three episodes of the Pokemon anime when I was in high school, I've followed the series from day one, though my interest never branched out much further than the video games. The show and collectible card game are neat, I'm sure, but the video game side of Pokemon is what has kept me coming back for what will soon be two decades.
