Kanto Starters, Mega Evolutions, And More! -- Pokémon Direct!

During the September Pokémon Direct, even more new information came to light! - Detailed description listed below.

The Kanto Starters!

  • In Pokémon X & Y, not only will you receive either Fennekin, Chespin or Froakie but you will also receive one of the Kanto Starters, Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle. One of these will be gifted to you by Professor Sycamore!
  • Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise all have Mega Evoltuions, each with a new boosting ability! Venusaur will have Thick Fat, Charizard will have Drought and Blastoise will have a new ability called Mega Launcher which will boost specific moves. There are no type changes for any of these Mega Evolutions.
  • A Bracelet called the Mega Ring holds a stone which is known as the Key Stone, this Key Stone reacts with your Pokémon's Mega Stone to trigger a Mega Evolution.

Pokémon Bank & Poké Transporter!

  • Pokémon Bank is an application and service for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y that will allow you to deposit, store, and manage your Pokémon in private Boxes on the Internet! Pokémon Bank is a paid service, with an annual charge for usage.
  • With Pokémon Bank, you will be able to link up your own boxes online via your Nintendo 3DS to deposit and withdraw any Pokémon. In the unlikely scenario in which you lose your copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y, your Pokémon would still be stored in Pokémon Bank ready to be transferred into a new game. You will be able to store upto 3,000 Pokémon!
  • Poké Transporter is a free 3DS app that allows you to upload Pokémon from your Pokémon Black and White Versions and Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 Versions into an online box. From there you can then transfer these uploaded Pokémon onto your Pokémon X & Pokémon Y Versions via Pokémon Bank! Once Pokémon have been transferred they cannot be traded back.
