Drew Leachman writes: Ah, Pokémon. Every game player has heard of the series. It was and still is a giant franchise full of toys, trading cards, animes, books, you name it. Of course, what started it all was the video game series that made Pikachu and company a household name. Over the years, Pokémon games have released to much praise even if they kept the formula mostly the same. Now, the 3DS finally gets its first full Pokémon adventure in the form of X and Y. Like the others in the series, the formula is very familiar, but the subtle changes and improvements really do make this the best Pokémon game to date.
