Today, October 12th, is the official release day of the new Pokemon X and Y games!
Why are these Pokemon games so exciting? Aside from the addition of yet more new Pokemon, this game brings the original three starter Pokemon back – Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur. These new games are for the 3DS and feature full 3D renderings of pokemon as have never happened in this type of pokemon game. There are also new evolution form called mega evolution. These games are refreshing, and I am super excited to start playing.
A picture has been released of the 8th evolution type for Eevee in the next generation of Pokemon Games X and Y: Sylveon.
Sylveon’s type has not been revealed.
Eevee is a normal type pokemon that can be evolved in to many different forms. It requires many different methods to obtain each type such as using element stones, raising your Eevee’s friendship level, and visiting specific geographic locations in the game. Here is a graphic that shows Eevee in the middle with all of her evolved forms:
Eevee is my favorite pokemon, and I love many of her evolutionary forms especially Flareon, Umbreon, and Leafeon. I love the look of Sylveon and hope that her type will add to making a balanced team comprised only of Eevee evolutions!
A brand new set of Pokemon games has been for released later in 2013, Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. The games will be on the 3DS – the first full Pokemon game for the 3DS. Pokemon Rumble is out, but it is a very different style. A worldwide release of the game is expected in October.
The three new starter Pokemon have already been revealed:
I am particularly excited for Fennekin because it is a fennec fox and a cute new addition to the Pokemon universe.
