Pokémon X and Y has finally hit store shelves and players are able to experience a multitude of incredible enhancements to the popular series. Looking back on the Pokémon series from it's humble roots on the original Game Boy, we are now in the midst of game series with over 600 unique types of Pokémon, taking place in several large regions, with heaping handfuls of rivals and trainers to battle with. X and Y delivers a few key enhancements that, in my opinion, the series has been missing for a long time.

The Starter Pokémon have always been a part of a trainer, their partner and friend. They are the first Pokémon that the trainer bonds with, and often become the backbone of a trainer's six Pokémon team!

Hey there, Wikians!
Our friends over at IGN recently posted a video talking about the new Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. If past trends are to be believed, we should be getting Pokemon-related character announcement for the new game.
