New Pokemon X & Y News from E3

Pokemon X & Y are confirmed to release on 3DS worldwide this October 12, 2013.

The biggest news has to be the new Fairy type, the 18th type to introduced into the Pokemon franchises.  It’s said that the Fairy type is super effect against Dragon type Pokemons.  Finally, I always said that Dragons need more weakness.  The new Eevee evolution Sylveon is going to be this type, and some older Pokemons such as Jigglypuff, Gardevoir and Marill are going to be Fairy type as well now.  No words yet if they will retain their old types though.

There will also be a new feature called “Pokemon-Amie,” a vitural pet-style feature that allows players a “deeper cpneection” with their Pokemon.  Player can now feed, care and feed their Pokemon with the stylus.  The trailer shows this feature with Pikachu and Snorlax, and let me to you, it’s super effective (on cuteness)!

The trailer also shows us two new Pokemons:  Vivillon & Noivern.
