Pokémon has been around since the 90s and has stood strong and relentless, remaining a massive and popular series in the gaming world. With the release of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, one thing is clear: this series isn’t going anywhere soon. The games not only adhere to their younger target audience, they provide ample nostalgia and imagination for the older, more mature Pokémon aficionado. The new titles do this by bringing many of the things long-time fans have asked for to the forefront while still maintaining the traditional formula. Despite a few frame-rate hiccups and some old, unsolved problems, this is one of the best Pokémon yet.
