The lights are on
The latest trailer for Pokémon X & Y reveals the ability to customize your trainer and certain types of Pokémon, the evolved forms of the new starters, and a new Mega Evolution for Mewtwo.
It turns out Mewtwo's Mega Evolution will differ depending on what version of Pokémon you decide to purchase. As you can see in the image above, Mewtwo will have different Mega Evolved forms in X & Y.
The trailer also reveals that your trainer can adopt different looks, as well as certain Pokémon like Furfrou.
The new starter Pokémon, Froakie, Chespin, and Fennekin's evolved forms also shown. The three turn into Frogadier, Quilladin, and Braixen respectively, which you will see in the trailer. Be sure to keep an out for Mega Garchomp and the new Pokémon, Meowstic, in the trailer as well.

The amount of customization for your trainer is amazing! I really wasn't expecting it to go much deeper than skin/hair, but wow, I really wasn't looking forward to actually doing much with it, but I'm glad they're going as far as they are with it.
Frogadier looks awesome! And Quiladin lost some of it's charm, I can't decide which starter to get yet! Also, the Mewtwo forms finally gave me a reason to want Y, but I don't plan on using legendaries anyways.
if you hate the evolved starters, fear not! you still have the kanto-starters and...a torchic w/mega stone
Okay I love grass Pokemon to death, but I don't want Teddy from Persona to be my Pokemon. I really hope they improve the final form. My judgement about the fire starter is the same, I will never think twice about not starting with it. I'm generally not a fan of water types (for some reason as I love water as the element in pretty much everything else) but it is the only one that looks even slightly promising at this point. I am still indecisive about which one to get. I wanted X because it was the unpopular one, but I liked all the exclusive Pokemon shown in Y better. Then this happened so I think I will stick with X regardless.
So far I don't flat out hate any pokemon that they've revealed which honestly surprises me a bit. I'm really looking forward to this gen
That... is a badass-looking Mewtwo.
I like the Y exclusive Mewtwo better, but the hipster in me always sides with the less popular legendary.
About the 2nd starter evolutions...I'm getting a strength, magic, stealth vibe.
I'm really kind of excited about the new Pokemon game. The series has been in a creative rut, and it seems like they're finally getting their stuff together. Can't wait to get my hands on the game.
