Legendary PokÃƒÂ©mon Types Announced: Fairy-Type Xerneas and Dark and Flying Type Yvetal Debuting in PokÃƒÂ©mon X and PokÃƒÂ©mon Y
The PokÃƒÂ©mon Company International revealed new details about Legendary PokÃƒÂ©mon Xerneas and Yveltal today, including their types. Fairy-type PokÃƒÂ©mon Xerneas will know Geomancy, a new move exclusive to Xerneas. Yveltal, a Dark and Flying type PokÃƒÂ©mon, is the only PokÃƒÂ©mon that knows the new move Oblivion Wing. Players can encounter Xerneas in PokÃƒÂ©mon X and Yveltal in PokÃƒÂ©mon Y when the video games launch worldwide on October 12, 2013, for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Xerneas is a Fairy-typeÃ¢â‚¬â€a brand-new type being introduced in PokÃƒÂ©mon X and PokÃƒÂ©mon Y. Watch the awe-inspiring beauty of XerneasÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ exclusive move, Geomancy, which features rainbow-colored light that erupts from the earth around it. Xerneas has the special Ability Fairy Aura, which naturally takes effect in battle, strengthening Fairy-type moves for all PokÃƒÂ©mon in battle. Be careful, because Fairy Aura also has a positive effect on opposing PokÃƒÂ©mon that know Fairy-type moves.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Dark and Flying type Yveltal is the only PokÃƒÂ©mon that can learn the move Oblivion Wing, which sends Yveltal flying high into the sky to release a powerful beam of red light that scorches the ground below. The Destruction PokÃƒÂ©monÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s special Ability, Dark Aura, is a counterpoint to Fairy Aura, raising the strength of Dark-type moves for all PokÃƒÂ©mon in battle. This Ability is powerfully effective in Double and Triple Battles when facing multiple opponents simultaneously. So, when Yveltal is in battle, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s smart for players to fill their team with PokÃƒÂ©mon that can use Dark-type moves.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ It is now known that Fighting and Dark type Pangoro evolves from spunky little Pancham. This evolved PokÃƒÂ©mon has a violent temperament, but it also believes in fairness and does not forgive those who pick on the weak. The leaf Pangoro carries in its mouth can predict its opponentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s moves. By waving its strong, heavy arms, Pangoro uses the Fighting-type move Hammer Arm to inflict great damage on opponents. It does lower the userÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Speed, but Hammer ArmÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s power is tremendous.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Players will encounter Inkay in PokÃƒÂ©mon X and PokÃƒÂ©mon Y. This Dark and Psychic type PokÃƒÂ©mon has the ability to drain other PokÃƒÂ©monÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s will to fight by flashing the transmitters above its eyesÃ¢â‚¬â€giving Inkay the opportunity either to attack its foes or to hide from them. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s said that the flashing emitted from InkayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s transmitters can also be used to communicate with its friends. Inkay can learn a new Dark-type move, Topsy-Turvy, a tricky move that will reverse all of the stat changes that are affecting a target. For instance, if opponents increase their Attack and Defense stats during battle, it will suddenly come back to bite them when Topsy-Turvy is used.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ The Dark- and Psychic-type PokÃƒÂ©mon Malamar is the evolved form of Inkay and may have the strongest hypnotic force of any known PokÃƒÂ©mon, helping it to bend opponents to its will. As a result, humans with ill intentions try to use Malamar to aid in their devious plots. Malamar can learn the Psychic-type move Hypnosis, which leaves opponents asleep and for the most part unable to take any actions during battle.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ The Fairy-type PokÃƒÂ©mon Swirlix, which can only be captured in PokÃƒÂ©mon X, comes with the new Ability Sweet Veil that keeps PokÃƒÂ©mon on the same team from being left asleep in battle. Use Swirlix when facing Double and Triple Battles featuring PokÃƒÂ©mon that know moves like Hypnosis. Swirlix can learn the new Fairy-type move Draining Kiss, which does damage to a target while also restoring some HP to the user. Battles will be much easier when you can attack an opponent with Draining Kiss and restore your PokÃƒÂ©monÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s health at the same time. Swirlix only eats sweets, causing its body to be sweet and sticky, like cotton candy.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Only available for capture in PokÃƒÂ©mon Y, the new Fairy-type PokÃƒÂ©mon Spritzee emits a unique fragrance that causes anyone who smells it to fall under its spell. Spritzee can learn the Grass-type move Aromatherapy, which causes a PokÃƒÂ©mon to exude a relaxing fragrance that heals its alliesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ status conditions, such as sleep and poison.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ It is now known that the previously announced Water-type PokÃƒÂ©mon Clauncher can only be captured in PokÃƒÂ©mon X, and the Poison- and Water-type PokÃƒÂ©mon Skrelp can only be captured in PokÃƒÂ©mon Y.
Professor Augustine Sycamore will entrust you and your friends with PokÃƒÂ©mon and send everyone out on a PokÃƒÂ©dex-filling adventure throughout the Kalos region. Along the way, players will encounter a mysterious organization called Team Flare. This strange and fashionable group shows up in cities around the Kalos regionÃ¢â‚¬â€what could their motive be?
Two new Gym Leaders have been introduced today, joining the Santalune City Gym Leader, Viola. Grant is a Gym Leader who excels at bike racing, mountain climbing, and many other sports. When they meet Grant, players will be facing a Trainer with a strong heart. Clemont, accompanied by his sister, Bonnie, is a young Gym Leader who loves science. Clemont gets extremely excited by the many devices he invents.
Also introduced is a new game feature called O-Powers that allows players the ability to easily power up PokÃƒÂ©mon in their party and provides other benefits in PokÃƒÂ©mon X and PokÃƒÂ©mon Y. O-Powers are special powers that come in various forms and can be shared between players via the new Player Search System, or PSS. Sharing O-Powers with someone youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve connected with locally or through the Internet is accomplished by tapping a player on the Touch Screen. Some O-Powers will temporarily increase a PokÃƒÂ©monÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s stats, while others make it easier to catch wild PokÃƒÂ©mon or increase the Experience Points gained in battle.
For players of PokÃƒÂ©mon X and PokÃƒÂ©mon Y who want to add a little thrill to their PokÃƒÂ©mon trades, Wonder Trade allows players to instantly trade a PokÃƒÂ©mon for one offered by someone else in the world. The catch? Players will make the trade without knowing which PokÃƒÂ©mon theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll get in return. You might receive an unexpected rare PokÃƒÂ©mon or one that will add strength to your PokÃƒÂ©mon party!
