Pokemon X and Y Announced! A First Look at the 6th Gen!

It was announced at 6am EST via Nintendo Direct that the next additions to the Pokemon Universe will be two brand new main series games: Pokemon X and Pokemon Y! These two new games are the first games of the 6th generation! The announcement was followed by a trailer (pictures and video to be posted later today) showcasing the new starter and legendary Pokemon, as well as 3D cell shaded graphics instead of pixels, a first for a main series game! Also as a first, these games will be released worldwide in October 2013.

As with any new game, there is a ton of speculation as to what the new games hold. We already have the English names of the starters: Chespin (Grass), Fennekin (fire), and Froakie (water), but what else's does the game hold? Only time will tell! Post what you hope to see in the game in our comments section!
