Russell Archey of Gaming Nexus: "If you’ve never heard of Pokemon or anything dealing with Pokemon, I’d be surprised. Pokemon has been around since 1996 and there’s no doubt it’s one of the biggest franchises in Nintendo’s history. From video games to the collectible card game to clothing and other merchandise, no matter where you go Pokemon is all around you. As such, Nintendo recently released Pokemon X and Pokemon Y for the 3DS, marking the 6th set of games for the series and the first for the 3DS. If you’re in the dark about how Pokemon works, let’s take a look at a brief summary of the games in the core series. As a quick side note, there might be a few spoilers in this review when talking about the new features and mechanics, so consider this a warning before you read on."
