    • You can get one of the three starter Pokemon from Red and Blue, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle, when you defeat Professor Sycamore.
    • You can find the legendary Pokemon that made their first appearances in Red and Blue during the post-game. Mewtwo is inside a cave in Pokemon Village, similar to when you found it in Cerulean Cave in Red and Blue, while the three birds: Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres roam around the region.
    • A sleeping Snorlax blocks a bridge on Route 7, and you need to wake it up with a Poke Flute, similar to when you encountered one on Route 12 and another on Route 16 in Red and Blue.
    • A man on Route 12 gives you a Lapras, similar to when you were given one at Silph Co. in Red and Blue.
    • Ramos's gym, which is the fourth gym you battle, is focused on Grass-type Pokemon, just like Erika's gym, which is the fourth gym you battle in Red and Blue.
    • In Santalune City, the is a hiker who wants to trade you a Farfetch'd, just like the trainer in Vermilion City in Red and Blue. Unlike in Red and Blue however, Farfetch'd can be found in the wild, making this trade optional.
  • These games are the first to introduce new forms of old Pokémon: Mewtwo, Lucario, Blaziken, Gardevoir, Absol, Ampharos, AlakazamAbomasnow, Gyarados, Aerodactyl, Garchomp, Mawile, Kangaskhan, GengarVenusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Aggron and Tyranitar.
  • This is currently the only main series game where the player character can ride a Pokémon other than by Diving, Flying or Surfing because you can ride Skiddo, Gogoat, Mamoswine, and Rhyhorn around select cities, towns, and routes.
  • This will be the first region since Johto to introduce a new type of Pokémon: the Fairy-Type.
  • The new Fairy- type Pokémon include Sylveon, the Flabebé evolutionary line, the Spritzee line, the Swirlix line, Dedenne, Carbink, Klefki, and Xerneas. Also, some Pokemon have gained the Fairy-type as their secondary typing, with those being:
    • the Ralts line (except for Gallade who retains his Psychic-Fighting typing), becoming a Psychic-Fairy typed evolution line.
    • the Azurill line, becoming a Normal-Fairy/Water-Fairy typed evolution line.
    • Mawile, becoming a Steel-Fairy type.
    • the Igglybuff line, becoming a Normal-Fairy typed evolution line.
    • the Mime Jr. line, becoming a Psychic-Fairy typed evolution line.
    • and the Cottonee line, becoming a Grass-Fairy typed evolution line.
      • Some Pokemon have been retyped to have Fairy be their primary types, with those being the Cleffa line, the Snubbull line, and the Togepi line.
  • The games were released early by select retailers in a few countries, allowing illegal leaking to surface into the internet, making Nintendo crack down hard on those who had dared to break street date.
  • These games introduced the fewest new Pokémon in a single generation, with 69 completely new Pokémon and 20 Mega Evolutions.
  • Depending on which game you have, Charizard and Mewtwo's Mega Evolutions will be different.
  • In the UK, Pokémon X & Y were released in stores; GAME and HMV a day early and this technically means that for the first time the UK got a Pokémon Game Release before Japan and America.
  • This is the second game in the series, where you are offered the Kanto starters on top of the regional starters.
  • These are the first games in the series where Pokémon Transfer is a service that has to be purchased in order to use it.
  • A glitch/in-game event is at Lumiose City which happens once per profile (more commanly known as the "ghost girl" glitch) is when the player enters the fighting dojo 2nd floor, the screen will blink a few times and a hex maniac will appear behind you and move with no walking animation, and say "no, you're not the one" then "float" away, with the screen blinking once more.
    • The ghost girl also appears again in the Rich Hotel where she says "...Don't talk to me... If you do, I won't hear the elevator...".
