Yesterday we saw some incredibly big news about Pokémon X and Y, the upcoming 3DS entries to Nintendo’s mega-million-selling series — new forms of evolution. In order to catch up on all the news, you can head over here, but because it would take a day and a half to summarize it in a measly reference, I’ll just let you do that on your own time.

Following the news we received yesterday, we have a ton more screenshots featuring Mega Evolution, the new stage of Pokémon evolution in X and Y. We also have new information on a few of the Pokémon revealed yesterday and a few other screenshots to boot!

One of the most interesting new pieces of information that’s come about in this batch of screenshots involves ledges, the famous bane of every Pokémon player’s existence. Whereas in past entries of the series, ledges served as one-way means of travel, only crossable when traveling downhill, players in X and Y will be able to jump up ledges when riding a Gogoat or a Skiddo, as you can see in this screenshot that surfaced in our post yesterday.

In the gallery below you can see the rest of the beautiful screenshots, and right here there’s more information on the newly-revealed Pokémon, thanks to Siliconera!

“By emitting radio waves from its antenna-shaped whiskers, new Electric- and Fairy-type Pokémon Dedenne can communicate with far-off allies. It can also plug its tail into outlets to drain electricity from them. Its Ability, Cheek Pouch, is new to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. If a Pokémon with this Ability eats a Berry during battle, it will not only reap the benefit from the Berry, but the Pokémon will also be able to regain HP. Dedenne can learn the new Electric-type move Nuzzle, which looks cute as the user nuzzles up to a target with its cheeks fully charged, but it’s quite dangerous! Nuzzle will do damage while paralyzing the opponent.” — Siliconera

Bunnelby is a new Normal-type Pokémon that creates its den by digging in the ground with its large, shovel-shaped ears. These powerful ears are strong enough to chop right through thick tree roots, making them a force to be reckoned with in battle. Bunnelby can learn the Ground-type move Dig. On the first turn, the user burrows underground, and on the second turn, it attacks! In Double Battles, a Pokémon can use Dig to avoid its ally’s attack and then dish out damage on the next turn.” — Siliconera

“It is now known that Skiddo evolves into the already announced Gogoat. A Grass-type Pokémon, Skiddo has a gentle nature and is said to be the first Pokémon to live alongside humans. Because of this relationship, Skiddo doesn’t mind carrying people or supplies on its back, and it has become able to read the feelings of its riders through their grip on its horns. Skiddo can learn the Grass-type move Leaf Blade, where the user wields a sharp leaf to slice like a sword.” — Siliconera

My, these games are turning out to be quite exciting! Do you plan on picking them up?

Our Verdict

Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
