They ran out of colours.

G-cis3676d ago

Ruby ,sapphire ,emerald ,diamond,pearl ,platinum
are colours??

ApexHell3676d ago (Edited 3676d ago )

actually those are all colour gradients from the primary colours except diamond. but diamonds also come in many colours.

Hisiru3676d ago

I wish we could have a new Pokémon Stadium for the WiiU with all the minigames from Stadium 1 and 2.

360ICE3676d ago

Black and white are also arguably not colors. Depends whether you're using pigments or light. Also, crystal is not a color I think.

Eamon3676d ago

Looks like we thought they were colors then found out they're not, only to find out they're gradients.

masterlinkace3676d ago

wait...X and Y aren't colours? o.O

@Hisiru - We will most likely get something like that ,even just a HD Battle revoloution with awesome graphics would be nice. The wiiu should get something pokemon related this year (at least an anouncement).

Anyway , Congratulations Pokemon fans , this is what we've all been waiting for.

GOTY 2013

Blastoise3676d ago

Lol I dunno about GOTY. 2013 has a crazy number of awesome games coming out.

But I am super excited about this! Been waiting for an announcement like this since I bought a 3DS :)

Liefx3676d ago

No I think it has to do with the X and Y axis in 3D. 3rd game will probably be called Z.

3-4-53676d ago

Somebody get's / understands it finally. lol

Obviously 3D is important to the game but people don't get that reference. Also could be the Chromosome reference as well.

I think it's a least a two fold idea.

farhad2k83676d ago

You may be right, but I honestly think it's to do with the Chromosomes as the Y Legendary looks way more feminine compared to X.

Either way, I do NOT like the look of those starter Pokemon.

Sevir3675d ago

The Jump to full 3D meant they had to pick a title that signified it, and the Pokemon that the games are about also feature the shape of the letters.

I'm excited. I can't wait.

Liefx3675d ago

@farhad2k8 You could very well be right too. There is a Japanese character that signifies gender or something in the title.

Although I feel the "Axis" thing is closer to correct.

"When you see the trailer the legendary pokemon for 'X' is on land and the legendary pokemon for 'Y' is flying.
So with that said X & Y represents axis, X being horizontal (land) and Y being vertical (sky)."

fatstarr3676d ago

have you seen the color scale?
they have far from run out of colors

I think the name change from colors to letters is so that people know this is something entirely new

New system, new engine, new Pokemon probably a new show too.

IAmLee3676d ago

There's no such thing as too much pokemon..

This looks like the best Pokemon to date. And could be the Pokemon game that I have been waiting to be on the DS ever since I played the GameCube version.

For anyone that missed it, also in English. Skip to 7:20 to see the new game.

iamnsuperman3676d ago (Edited 3676d ago )

It took them 7 minutes to announce it on the video they could have cut the stuff at the beginning. I agree it does look nice

ElectricKaibutsu3675d ago

I kind of liked the recap of past games.

Summons753676d ago

Wow I was disappointed by the lack of the wiiU version but that video actually made me want a 3ds. Maybe they will have another price drop to make the 3ds actually worth the value this year. Totally want this but like the ds it'll be the only game that will keep my attention then after I beat it it will collect dust until the next Pokemon.

exfatal3676d ago

you seriously thing 99$ is too much for a 3ds? if that's the case you might wanna save your money and just not game.

Godchild10203676d ago (Edited 3676d ago )

I'm hoping sometime after or before the release we will hear about a Wii U version that connects to X & Y some how.

I was expecting it too, but what I saw made up for the lack of a Wii U announcement.

@exfatal, where can you get a 3DS for $99 dollars? I thought the system was $169.99 and $199.99 (XL version).

3-4-53676d ago


How many MAIN Pokemon games are released on Console ? ..uhhh none..

Wii U will get it's pokemon game.

I hope they make another Pokemon Conquest

WiiUsauce3676d ago

Castlevania? Monster Hunter? Luigi's Mansion 2, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem, Super Mario 3D Land, MGS Snake Eater, RE Revelations, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Zero Escape, Pilot Wings, Mario Kart 7, Street Fighter and Ocarina of Time don't interest you?

Baylex3676d ago

Now I will have to buy a 3DS XL just for this game... great... loool why nintendo?? WHYYYY????

EddieNX 3676d ago

Why do people act like the 3DS has one game worth playing ? Simply not true , all platforms have a load of amazing games worth playing...

Kingdom Hearts , Resi Merc , Resi Rev , Mario 3D land , Mario Kart 7 , Ocarina 3D , Starfox 3D , Tales of the Abyss , Kid icarus Uprising , SHin Megami Tensei , Paper Mario , Professor layton , Virtues Last reward . and many many others.

Coming soon - Animal Crossing , Fire Emblem , Castlevania MoF , Monster Hunter Ultimate , Luigis Mansio Dark moon , Pokemon Mystery Dungeon , etc.

But no , You're only buying a 3DS for one game ever right ? It's litteraly like me saying , I'm only buying a PS3 to play uncharted , then it will collect dust.

But If I went out and spent some money on some of the amazing gamrs on PS3 there is tons...

Same with Wii , there is so many more great games than what people think. Like LOADS

BusterFang3676d ago

Well Kingofwiiu, you always have to consider that some people simply aren't interested in those (Don't see why, but hey it's them, not you or me). Personally I'm buying a 3DS for this, but I'll be picking up KH3D, Tales of the Abyss and Kid Icarus Uprising. I'll see about other games eventually down the line. But through and through, Pokemon X and Y sold me right away, other than that I wasn't going to worry about getting one...anytime soon at least.

I'm hoping that they might eventually make some sort of open world Pokemon game for Wii U with online features and such (I made a post a long while back about what I'd want in one, but anyways...) that would make the Wii U an instant buy for me, personally, rather than waiting and possibly losing interest in buying one at all.

Qrphe3676d ago


Some people get tired of playing the same games over and over. Some of those games you mentioned haven't even come out yet (SMT4? Really? We don't even know the JAPANESE release date).

Zhipp3676d ago

Apparently not if you still get excited about Pokemon these days.

Krew_923675d ago

That's one of the reasons why I bought a 3DS. I knew Black 2 and White 2 would be the final full Pokemon DS games. They had to stop at one point.

As a fan of Pokemon I want to continue the experience so I bought the XL when it was released. Also there's something about playing old games you owned on new tech that make them feel like new. Like when I got my Vita I played some old PSP games and they felt like a new experience, so buying a 3DS for DS games itself is a good reason too.

ZombieNinjaPanda3676d ago

Wish they would have stayed with pixelart though. I like that style much better than 3D.

BusterFang3676d ago

After seeing that portion of the video about Pokemon X and Y, I was sold. I'm definitely going to pick up me a 3DS XL to play these on. :D Can't wait!

MoveTheGlow3676d ago

That looks... Dragon Quest-y. *sheds a tear* I'm finally interested in a Pokemon game again.

fatstarr3676d ago (Edited 3676d ago )

SHOULDA SAVED THIS FOR E3 .... but im interested

MasterCornholio3675d ago (Edited 3675d ago )

Im not a fan of Pokemon (Nintendos cry babies attack) however i do admire the cell shaded art style (i love cell shading except in Wind Waker).

Im sure that many people will love this game as much as i enjoyed red and blue when i was little (but i got bored of Pokemon after Crystal)


"where can you get a 3DS for $99 dollars? I thought the system was $169.99 and $199.99 (XL version)."

If you buy it used and in bad condition you could get it that cheap. But with the XL being much better than the regular 3DS you would have to be stupid to get the small one.

ZoidsRaven3676d ago

I hope we can still play online with people who have the DS games. 7_7

Zechs343676d ago

Somehow I doubt that. I mean, we are not playing Halo 4 on 360 versus Halo 2 Xbox or PC.

ZoidsRaven3676d ago

A very good point, but a lot of people are still buying B&W2. It would just be nice to see something for the people who got the last Pokémon game[s]...... Likely not, a guy can still hope... 7_7

DEATHxTHExKIDx3676d ago

A bit dissapointed its not Ruby and Sapphire. BUT, a new generation is welcome as well. It looks awesome in 3D. I'm not feeling the starters right now hopefully their evolutions look better. The legendaries look good tho.

3-4-53676d ago

They can't lead off with a remake ....they don't do that...

The first one is game will be a Ruby & Saphire Remake that will will get in 2015. Followed by The next NEW pokemon game...maybe X&Y 2 in 2017.

Samus HD3676d ago

the X legendary looks like that God Deer from princess mononoke
Both look awesome though

ElectricKaibutsu3675d ago

I was thinking the same thing.

SonyNGP3676d ago

A simultaneous worldwide release is crazy. I don't think the Vita is gonna stand a chance this 4th quarter O_O

Baylex3676d ago (Edited 3676d ago )

Take it easy boy.. just let a GTA get on the vita and see what happens lol this pokemon is only for october 2013.. there's still plenty of time for the vita ;)
Not saying this is not going to be very good for the 3ds, because it will

tubers3676d ago

Come one come all! Baseless Vitassurance! Get yours right here!

RuperttheBear3676d ago

'just let a GTA get on the vita and see what happens lol'

I remember hearing something similar with Call of Duty....

Haha1233676d ago (Edited 3676d ago )

GTA on the psp couldn't do squat last gen....

Yodagamer3676d ago

Rock star is too busy making phone ports. I love rock star, but I doubt they have as much an interest in the vita than they did the psp

bothebo3676d ago (Edited 3676d ago )

Relax Baylex, these are all people who bought shit in order to relive their childhood. They're Nintendo fan boys, they buy franchises that have been milked for over 25 years and rehashed games. They are the idiots of gaming.

I find it funny that they are dissing the Vita because their launch line up for the next 9 months is atrocious until they get this game. The Vita on the other hand has sooo many good games and series that actually carry weight. These are Sly Cooper, Kill Zone, Ratchet and Clank, Soul Sacrifice (New IP), and a possible MGS.

You don't have crap on us Ninny fanboys. Even Iwata recognized that numbers aren't everything. Wave goodbye to your only argument and recognize you got shit.

NukaCola3676d ago

I own a Vita and a 3DS so everyone wins in my book.

Zhipp3676d ago

Rockstar has been "rehashing" GTA games for over 15 years now, and you don't seem to mind.

Also, the 3DS has plenty of 2013 titles Besides Pokemon X/Y and Mystery Dungeon. Just to name a few: Animal Crossing, Etrian Odyssey IV, Fire Emblem, Luigi's Mansion, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and (hopefully)Bravely Default. There's the next Brainage, too, but I don't really consider that a game.

You also neglected to include Media Molecule's next title in your list. Come on, man! How could you forget to mention Tearaway? It's not only a new IP, but an entirely new concept!

tubers3675d ago

If RockStar barely cares about the PC community showing bad support regarding GTA V.. "We currently ain't doing that release".

What makes you think they'd give ANY care to the ironically named system?

ElectricKaibutsu3675d ago


I have nothing at all against the Vita. I want it to do great and have amazing games. But there actually are some good games coming out on the 3DS within the next 9 months. Off the top of my head Monster Hunter is releasing in March and Animal Crossing is releasing by June, supposedly. I don't personally care about those games but they sure are popular in Japan. Pokemon, Animal Crossing, and Monster Hunter are all system sellers. The Vita needs a game like that.

Why can't we just like both handhelds? Man people, get over yourselves. I enjoy both the 3DS and Vita.

Anyway, this does look really good. Can't wait to pick it up.

AdvanceWarsSgt3676d ago

Fanboys man. They just will never think with that type of logic.

tubers3675d ago

Because in reality, the middle class is getting worse.. so most can only afford one system. Choose your purchases WELL.
