Art in pokemon is generally a small, but repeated theme. For example, the Lilycove Museum features a collection of fantastic artwork featuring Pokémon and Contests. There is also Nacrene City, that is called "The City of Art", where various people including Burgh the gym leader, go to get various ideas for art. But can art mean something more in X&Y?

Being speculated that X&Y takes place in France, France is also quite well known for art. Remember that art is a broad topic: art can be created on the form of paintings, or even something like sculpting. Sculping creates statues like this one here:

On where this statue has been speculated to have many meanings or hints. However, since this thread is talking more about general art, and since speculations of this region being represented as the art-famous French society, could general art mean much more, or have a bigger role in this game, compared to other games? Could general art have more of an impact in X&Y? How do you think art might impact this region? Could there be hints of people or pokemon with art? Will there be possibly more implications of art in this region, compared to the others? Could styles of art fit with French customs? Maybe there can be more cities devoted to art? Could there be more styles of art rather than just paintings? Any other thoughts?

More trainers of the Artist class wouldn't be surprising. :P
Other than that, an art-involving minigame perhaps? If they could make one for films, I'm sure they could make something more traditionally artsy if they wanted, hahaha.

As an "artist" myself, if done well, more features involving drawing and such would always be fun. The little signature on trainer cards are fun, but extremely limiting.

Perhaps we can draw a painting for the Museum which they'll put up, and we can visit every now and than, that'll be cool, to take the role of an artist. Also maybe more pokemon based on Art, or even a Smergle evolution to fit the whole art atmosphere given off by the region.

ORAS have been confirmed Remakes by Nintendo, they aren't Sequels so let go of that idea people.

I bet there'll be a fancy art museum and a minigame to go with it. Also, maybe in our creepy thing for this game (Strange House, whatever fake Lavender Tower there is, etc.) there'll be a haunted painting or two. But I don't see it becoming a major theme.

I'm sure since Pokémon X and Y is speculated to be based off France, the type of artwork other than paintings and sculptures I'd like to see is stained glass windows with some Pokémon and a person from ancient times. I'm sure we've seen something similar to this in Pokémon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, but it only had Dialga and Palkia in it, if my memory serves me right.

But I'd also love to see some nice murals inside some ancient temples, and now that we have enhanced 3D graphics... it would now be possible to see those murals unlike in previous generations where it was hard to see them.

Researching the NDS ROMs...

sure does feel like a brand new adventure!

I'm really looking forward to learning how to understand what the hex values mean and how to create programs using Microsoft Visual Studio!

Always focus on the present, best thing to do! Never look back into the past and never worry about anything bad of the future!

This. Except more "museum" and less "minigames".

Expect a huge/fancy/expansive museum, possibly for showcasing art of some sort, especially if Pokemon Contests were to come back, it could possibly be linked to that Musuem, too! It could possibly be a Hall of Fame sort of thing of both Contests as well as E4 records, but that's just me. u__u But that's pretty much the only thing that comes to mind at the moment. Other than that, I don't imagine Art in itself to make too huge or prevalent of an impact on the games.

Though, one could argue that Black City had a huge link to what New York City was so...maybe there could be a city devoted to art...I'd like to see that. XD
