Generation VI (Japanese: 第6世代Dai Roku-sedai) is the first generation of the Pokémon series to be exclusively 3D, meaning it is the first in the series to ever require a Nintendo 3DS system. Not very much else is known about it except that the first set of games are known as Pokémon X and Y. They were released worldwide on October 12th, 2013. This Generation introduces the 18th Pokemon type, Fairy, the first new type to be added since Dark and Steel were added in Generation II.
The generation features many changes such as 3D cel-shaded graphics, more in-depth battle scenes and a brand new camera view. The new region's name is Kalos, which draws inspiration from the continent of Europe, but primarily France. This is suggested from similarities between the tower that the male player is skating away from in the trailer and the Eiffel Tower, which is the main monument in the city of Paris, France.
