Which Starter Will You Choose?

Chespin sows the seeds of greatness!
Fennekin fires me up!
Froakie washes away the competition!
Generation I started it all with Pokemon Red/Green/Blue/Yellow.
Generation II continued the adventure in Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal.
Generation III advanced us to Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald and FireRed/LeafGreen.
Generation IV went through time and space to bring us Diamond/Pearl/Platinum and HeartGold/SoulSilver.
Generation V taught us truth and ideals in Black/White and Black 2/White 2.

And now we've reached the 6th Generation of Pokemon, bringing us to Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. The future of Pokemon begins now!

The Kalos Region


The Kalos Region, inspired by Europe (particularly France) is Pokemon X/Y's newest world to explore. In this new world we find new adventures, new challenges, and most important of all... new Pokemon!

Kalos' Cast of Characters

~Our Heroes~

You'll begin your adventure by choosing either Calem (male) or Serena (female). What adventure awaits for these brave young heroes?

~Professor Sycamore~

Professor Sycamore is Kalos' resident Pokemon Professor. Unlike previous professors, the Pokemon that Prof. Sycamore gives you is a blast from the past!

~Your Best Friends and Rivals~

Calem/Serena's core group of friends. Not only will they accompany you on traveling across the Kalos region, but they'll even give you your first Pokemon!

~Team Flare~

The dastardly (and fabulous!) Team Flare is up to no good. It's your job to stop them!

~Your New Best Friend~

You'll begin your adventure by choosing either Chespin (Grass), Fennekin (Fire), or Froakie (Water).

~The Very Essences of Life and Destruction Collide~

The Kalos Region brings with it legends of old, with the Life Pokemon Xerneas and the Destruction Pokemon Yveltal.

~The Fairy Type Emerges~

For the first time since Pokemon Gold/Silver, a new Pokemon type has been unleashed. Dragon, Fighting, and Dark types beware, the Fairy type is on the scene!

~Mega Evolutions~

If you thought Pokemon were powerful before, you ain't seen nothing yet! Mega Evolutions take Pokemon to the next level.

~Super Training~

EV Training just got a lot simpler with Super Training. Play these mini games to enhance your Pokemon's stats.

~Pokemon-amie~

Enhance your relationship with your beloved Pokemon with this new feature. As you grow in your bond your Pokemon will fight even harder for you.

~Pokemon Bank~

Pokemon Bank and PokeTransporter are the newest (and easiest) ways to transfer your Pokemon between games and even generations.

~New Generation, New Matchups~

A new generation means new tactics and strategies. Study hard trainer, it'll take all you've got to be a Pokemon master!

Thread is now open. :3

Let's wait until tomorrow (official release) until we spoil everything for everyone. Half the fun is discovering everything for yourself!

I'm so hyped for this game all of a sudden! I purposefully avoided everything about it, but I just caved and now I'm gonna have to get it at launch! :)

I love the trainers, friends, and rivals. Things are looking really good.

Now all that's left is to choose between X and Y... -_-

FYI: A bunch of Pokemon will be exclusive to X, and their corresponding Mega stones will be exclusive to Y. i.e. trade with ALL the vgcharters :D

*hint*You guys add me on 3DS*hint*

Might be relevant for those who haven't decided which version they want yet. I wanted X but after reading this I think I'm going to go with Y.

 

Edit: The link contains a bunch of new Pokemon. Avoid it if you don't want that spoiled for you.
