    Pokémon X/Y Introduces New Type, Pokégotchi - E3

    Looking for some fairies that don't bravely default? Always wanted to pet a Pikachu but were worried about the static cling? Pokémon has you covered.

    Oh good, fairy is a thing, and it looks like they will be rebranding some of the older Pokemon from the fairy egg group and beyond. There's something incredibly magical about Gardevoir using a super-effective STAB on Hydreigon--now it'll be hard to choose between "her" and Gallade.

    It's nice that they're moving some Pokemon out of the oversaturated Normal, Psychic, and Water groups into Fairy.

    Also, Poke-Aime looks gosh-darn adorable.

    According to that Pokemon Round-Table last night, the Fairy type was introduced to balance out Dragon types. Despite having two weaknesses, the power of many popular Dragon type is staggering. Many are Pseudo-Legendary (Dragonite, Salamance, Hydreigon, Garchomp), and outright Legendary. I'll be looking into having either a Fairy type or some Fairy types moves on my Pokemon once I get the game.

    Oh my, according to the Japanese article on Famitsu, X/Y will have seven-language support. O_O

    And then there are the "herd" battles, where you face down a large group of pokemon all at once...

    Do we have an English name for that new bat-like Flying/Dragon type yet? I definitely want him on the team.

    UGH!

    This game looks awesome. New type to help even the odds even more! I imagine that Fairy type will be weak to poison and steel. Those two types needs more strengths! lol

    Unfortunately now that my gf saw this video she wants the game as much as I do...which means....we need another 3DS.



    Hopefully some package deal comes out with a game I want so I can kill two birds with one stone!
