Welcome to the Kalos region
Pokémon Y challenges players to visit the mysterious Kalos region, a strange land that will allow you to take your very first steps into the next evolution of Pokémon, with the chance to choose between three brand new starter Pokémon! Home to beautiful skies and forests, the Kalos region is full of interesting places to visit and explore. The central city of the Kalos region is Lumiose City, a thriving metropolis filled with customers checking out its variety of shops. Many roads extend from the iconic tower at the city's centre.
Begin in Vaniville Town
Vaniville Town is your new home at the beginning of your adventure. The start of your journey waits just past the ornate town gates. Before leaving, your neighbour will be eager to meet you. Plus, you'll meet the family Rhyhorn, who's resting on its pad in your front yard! After leaving Vaniville Town, the first populated location you'll visit is Santalune City. It's a lovely city, easily identifiable by the large fountain at the centre of town. It's also home to the Santalune City Gym.
Your quest to become the Champion
RPG fans will no doubt love the style of play Pokémon Y offers, which sees you start off with Grass-type Chespin, Fire-type Fennekin, or Water-type Froakie before really starting your epic adventure. Along the way you'll discover its special moves and pick up experience in each battle; in turn, this means your Pokémon will grow stronger and eventually evolve. As usual though, there are plenty of other Pokémon waiting to be discovered as you go along, including new characters like Grass-type Gogoat, the latest evolution of Eevee named Sylveon, recently discovered Legendary Pokémon Yveltal, and a mysterious Pokémon that's somehow connected to Mewtwo.
What's new in Pokémon Y?
Mega Evolution is described as an Evolution beyond all Evolution, a transformation found only in the Kalos region. It has also been called the greatest mystery of Pokémon. In addition to far greater strength, Mega-Evolved Pokémon may also see their ability change, or even their type. A Mega-Evolved Pokémon will be able to tap into a strength far greater than it could before, so when a Pokémon becomes Mega-Evolved in battle, Trainers will have a great opportunity to turn a battle around and snag a win!
Pokémon gain experience and grow stronger by battling with other Pokémon. In Pokémon Y, that's not the only way to help your Pokémon grow – check out a brand-new method of Pokémon training: Super Training. With Super Training, it's not your Pokémon's level that goes up but its base stats, the underlying values that define your Pokémon's skills in battle. As these base stats increase, your Pokémon can increase its HP, Attack, or other stats beyond those of another Pokémon of the same species at the same level.
Player Search System
Connect and play with other Trainers at any time with the new Player Search System (PSS), which allows you to find other people playing Pokémon X and Pokémon Y! You'll connect to other players nearby or around the world through the internet; you can even communicate with players you've never had any contact with before.
You'll see all kinds of beautiful scenery and locations during your adventures in Pokémon Y. Take beautiful photos of these fantastic views. Just like a real camera, you'll be able to adjust the aperture, shutter speed, brightness, and other features to dial in the perfect shot!
The Fairy type
More than ten years after the series' first games, a new chapter in Pokémon battling history is about to unfold with the Fairy type. You've already met the first Fairy-type Pokémon – Sylveon – and there are also Pokémon from previous games that will be reclassified as Fairy-type Pokémon. They may look the same, but the strategies you'll choose and the way you use these Pokémon in battle will be unlike ever before!
Many more features
Even more new features in Pokémon Y include the following: new ways to battle in Horde Encounters and Sky Battles, playing with your Pokémon in Pokémon-Amie, changing your outfit and hairstyle, Trainer PR Videos, the Battle Chateau, the Battle Maison, the Friend Safari, and the Battle Institute.

The last Pokemon game I played was the original Red back in the day. Since then I have moved on to new franchises, even new gaming platforms (predominantly PC gaming nowadays). I only picked this up when I was trading in my Xbox 360, when I didn't really know what to use my store credit on.
I'm pretty much blown away. I haven't had as much fun playing a game in a while. I'm about 9 hours in, and about 7 of these hours were played non-stop on Saturday whilst the girlfriend was at work.
The graphics are fantastic, the art style complimenting the bright, vivid Pokemon and environments. I also want to mention how great the world looks, especially when the perspective of the camera changes as you play (for example, Lumiose City) which really add a whole other level of immersion.
My only negative so far would be the difficulty: I know this game is probably aimed towards a younger audience, and I'm only 9-ish hours in so can't really comment on the "late game", but I haven't really faced a challenging opponent as of yet, but am hoping this changes.
If you are familiar with Pokemon games, this will all be familiar to you. There is enough to warrant you playing through the newest version. If you are completely new to Pokemon, or even an old codger like me (I'm 30 years young!) there is still enough here to see and do to keep you entertained for many, many hours.
Pokemon has rekindled my love for fun like no other recent game has, and does so with it's simple, addictive gameplay.
Go catch them all!
There are hundreds of Pokémon to capture and gym leaders to beat... But, don't stop there! The endgame is raising your team of champs and battling people online! So many people leave the gane after beating the elite 4.
I love the 3d effects of this game, since it's the first title I've seriously played since Ruby. The game had so many new additions and old nostalgia too with the reintroduction of previous pokemon. It's never a dull sight when you throw your pokeball and a Blastoise emerges!
This is a must buy! I am 23 years old and I'm not afraid to admit i love this game!
The first thing that shocked me was just how well the art style has transitioned across into a fully fledged 3D game. We are no longer playing a pixelated sprite game, everything about this looks great. Walking around the house you start up in just feels so much more immersive, its actually fun to take a look around and explore the building unlike previous generations where you are in a small boring room.
You set off on your journey and straight away you can run… No slow walking, no having to wait forever to move a little faster. Also the old classic fetch a parcel or egg or something random quest has gone, you just set off on your journey and dive straight into the good stuff.
Theres a massive range of pokemon to catch and collect right at the beginning and almost immediately you pick up an exp share which shares out exp from a battle with your entire squad putting less pressure on you to chose who will be your lead pokemon.
So far the game really feels like something new unlike previous generations which have felt like the original game just with small tweaks. The world is fleshed out and due to the new art style and graphics its just great fun to explore. Theres a whole host of small tweaks but ill touch on those when I give a more detailed impression of the game.
So far I've sunk only a few hours in but for the first time since Blue I really cant wait to power the game back on and waste a good portion of my life playing.
The game begins with you choosing whether to play as a girl or a boy and then move into your new town to start your Pokemon adventure. If you've ever played a Pokemon game then you know what to expect, a linear storyline with goals which results in you becoming the greatest Pokemon master ever (and the champion) and saving the world. This game is no different, however, what is different was the world and the storyline.
Kalos (the region in which you live) is heavily inspired by Europe, which living in England I really enjoyed, I could see monuments in the game inspired by places I've been to in real life, and this was one of my favourite parts.
My absolute favourite part of this game was the addition (and the fact you could train) one of the three original start Pokemon (if you've been around since the beginning then I'm sure you were just as excited). Getting to pick from my favourite three, Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander added that little bit extra enjoyment for me and the chance to pick another completely unique Pokemon will appeal to many I'm sure.
For me this game is one of my favourites and I would highly recommend it regardless of whether you're an old Pokemon fan or someone who's never played it before.

Another great Pokemon installment.
Now on 3DS, the graphics and animations look absolutely stellar but we've kept the same sort of gameplay that fans keep coming back... Read more
