Nintendo has released a set of teasing screenshots to ramp up hype for the upcoming Pokemon X and Y titles. Does the capabilities of the 3DS overhaul the series? Take a look right here.

Nintendo have also confirmed the three starting Pokemon in the images. Players can choose between Chespin (grass), Fennekin (fire) and Froakie (water). As you can see, the new designs don’t stray too far from the traditional image.

More information has also been revealed with regards to the games’ legendary Pokemon. The height and weight of both can be found below:

Xerneus, 3.0 m (9’10”), 215.0 Kg (474 lbs.)
Yveltal, 5.8 m (19’00”), 203.0 Kg (447.5 lbs.)

    Pokemon has been the series that has grown up along side myself. I remember the good old days of blue and red, gold and silver when I was growing up. Since gen 3 things have just moved on so quickly.

    I’m genuinely ok with this change. Thought it may be too drastic but It’s a great change I think. Only things I’m worried about is never seeing a 2d pokemon game again…
