The Most Ambitious Pokemon Ever? Early Thoughts on Pokemon X/Y

1UP:Well folks, what you just witnessed was Nintendo's atomic bomb. Not only are they releasing a new Pokemon generation for the Nintendo 3DS, but they are doing it within a year of the initial announcement. And it will receive a simultaneous worldwide release at that. For Nintendo, this couldn't come at a better time. The 3DS has managed to establish itself in both the U.S. and Japan, but it faces more competition than ever before. Pokemon is their trump card. Even more so than Mario, it's the one franchise with the power to trump the iPad and sell people on the idea of shelling out $200 for a dedicated handheld. (3DS, Culture, Pokemon X and Y)
