Ride Pokémon Through The Streets Of Lumiose City In The Latest X And Y Trailer

A number of new details (and a new trailer) have been unveiled for the upcoming Pokémon X and Y, including mountable non-water Pokémon, four new Pokémon, the game's region map, a new city, and the box art.

You can see the four newly unveiled Pokémon below, and see them in action with new attacks in the trailer below. Meet Helioptile, Gogoat, Fletchling, and Pancham.

Here are the details of the newest Pokémon, straight from Nintendo.

  • The cowardly Pokémon Helioptile, a Normal- and Electric-type Pokémon, can generate enough electricity through sunbathing to power machinery. But wise Trainers won’t be deterred by Helioptile’s lack of bravery. It knows Parabolic Charge, a brand-new move where Helioptile attacks everything around it. Helioptile's HP is restored by half the damage taken by those hit.
  • Fletchling, a Normal- and Flying-type Pokémon, sings with a beautiful chirp that is sure to delight any Trainer. Although it is known to be very friendly, Fletchling will suddenly unleash relentless attacks once it’s in battle. For example, when it uses its Fire-type move Flame Charge in battle, in addition to doing damage, Fletchling’s Speed increases every time.
  • With a leaf always in its mouth and an intimidating glare that is rarely effective, Fighting-type Pokémon Pancham shows its playful side when it lets out a little smile when its head is pat. Pancham can learn a brand-new move, Parting Shot, which not only lowers an opponent’s Attack and Special Attack, but also allows Pancham to switch out for another Pokémon in a Trainer’s party during battle.
  • Pokémon X and Pokémon Y introduce a new method of transportation—riding the brand-new Pokémon, Gogoat. This large Grass-type Pokémon is a reliable way to travel certain parts of Lumiose City. In battle, it can use Horn Leech to recover HP equal to half the damage dealt by this move.

The game's region map has also been unveiled. We already new the name of the region, Kalos, and now you can see what it looks like.

Pokémon X and Y are releasing globally in October, a first for the series. Usually, Japan gets a head-start on collecting new Pokémon, but not this time around. For more on X and Y, you can check out the original announcement trailer, an interview with Pokémon Company International's director of consumer marketing about the games, and an interview with Pokémon's Takao Unno and Junichi Masuda where we got answers to all of our most burning Pokémon questions, like "What happens inside a Pokéball?"

Be sure to check out the photo gallery for more images, and the game's official box art.

  • Oh my God I think my head exploded! with the way you guys broke it down.

  • I don't want to ride some f***ing goat. Can I take my Charizard instead?
  • This will be the game that finally forces me to pick up a 3DS

  • Can't wait to devote another 100+ hours to pokemon!

  • Riding on Pokemon, NICE!

  • Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job Ive had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringin home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, http://Mojo50.com

  • Pokemon mount fest folks.

  • This is looking more and more like a day one purchase for me. Can't wait to ride Gogoat!

  • they seem to pulling out all the stops for this one,doesnt seem like a rehash

  • I'm not digging the covers all too much. It's not the Pokemon gracing the cover that's my problem, but the bland background to them. The three new Pokemon they revealed seem interesting.

  • Wonderful.

  • It's disturbing how much I'm looking forward to this.

  • Is it just me, or does that look like something from Scribblenauts?

  • Seems pretty good. Haven't played one of these since Fire Red. The game is extremely addicting. I think the first generation pokemon are what attract me to these games though. I like the second generation as well, just not as much. Are you able to use first and second gen pokemon in the newer ones, or are they excluded?
  • Late news is late.

    I'm guessing the mounting of Pokemon is gonna replace bikes, with you having tiger a saddle or something. I hope so, because the bikes have always bugged me.

  • Pancham is soooo cute!

  • Wow. I feel that these are pokemon. Helioptile looks like he doesn't belong as much but it's still acceptable. I'm still not sure how I feel about you Pokemon... But I like where this is going. I thought riding the Gogoat would make you go faster but that was a lie.
  • Gogoat... Really? That's the best name they could come up with?

  • Been waiting on what the region name was lol but seeing the trailer of the four new Pokemon....I CAN'T WAIT ANYMORE FOR OCTOBER!!!

  • I'm looking forward to this pokemon game. The pokemon designs -at least the ones so far- aren't horrible or bad they look like they have promising evolutions, and I always wondered why you couldnt ride pokemon in the city and in the routes.
