Check out these sweet limited edition Pokémon X & Y-themed 3DS XL consoles heading to Japan – plus, here’s a new Japanese trailer.

Gematsu reports the two models are called Xerneas and Yveltal Blue and Premium Gold, and will cost ¥22,800 yen each.

They’ll come in either Pokémon X or Pokémon Y varieties, packaged with a digital copy of the appropriate game as well as a 4GB SDHC card.

Pokémon X & Y releases worldwide in October, but these babies will be open for pre-order in Japan only from August 10.

As well as the shiny images below, here’s a three-minute Japanese trailer; we’d normally wait for an English version but I mean, while we’re here, right?
