Pokemon X and Y announced for 3DS

Nintendo has announced Pokémon X and Pokémon Y for Nintendo 3DS.

For the first time in the Pokémon series, the games will be released worldwide simultaneously, this October.

Yes, that means Pokémon X and Y will be released in Australia in October, 2013, alongside Japan, Europe and North America.

The game features three new starter Pokémon: Froakie, Fennekin and Chespin.

Nintendo referenced X and Y as being "3D" -- likely due to the 3DS's stereoscopic 3D capabilities -- and demonstrated full 3D (cel-shaded) battle animations alongside a quick glimpse of the eagerly awaited 3D overworld.

I wish that they would revert to the original 'monster' design of Pokémon. Had a look at the starters and noticed how stylised and unnaturally rounded their bodies are. I think it's the eyes of the Pokémon, they should be more like Charmanders, Geodude's etc. I feel like these new ones are looking straight into my soul O.o

Yup definitely the eyes, my warped fanboy gen I instincts agree :)
I was so excited when i found out about this ._.
Woo! More Pokemon names for me to not bother remembering. [MOG]
