During the last month a supposed industry insider has been giving out some rumored information regarding the upcoming Pokemon X & Y games, set to be released on October on Nintendo 3DS. The rumors were posted on the famous 4chan boards and as of today they have been labeled as fake.
Mr.XY claimed that he was working on the game’s packaging and as such he had a lot of new information about the game concerning the number of new Pokemons introduced into the game, returning Pokemons from previous games, new evolutions for older Pokemons, new Legendary Pokemons and some other gameplay features. Yesterday Mr.XY posted again saying that all the rumors were completely made up and he did so just to lure people and get these rumors appearing on websites.
Pokemon X & Y will feature a lot of changes to the tried and true Pokemon gameplay formula: gone is the top down view in favor a 3D camera. Graphics will be improved from the latest entries of the series and Pokemon will get more animations during battles. A few new Pokemons have been officially unveiled by Nintendo and we can expect some new details coming as we get closer to the final release date.
For the first time ever, Pokemon X & Y will be available worldwide during the same month.
