A big step for the Pokemon series! Quite a way to start a morning, or in my case, end your day! You guys chat it up about Pokemon X/Y while I slip off to bed. See you in a few, short hours!

Many of us were hoping that the next evolution of the main Pokemon series would be announced. I guess our fingers were crossed tight enough, as Pokemon X/Y are indeed that evolution! The series jumps from colored names to lettered names, bringing Pokemon into a brand-new dimension of fun.
Nintendo's 10-minute Nintendo Direct was a tease most of the time, bringing us through the history of the main Pokemon series. The wait seemed agonizing, but eventually the presentation paid off with a debut in-game trailer for Pokemon X/Y. As mentioned above, the biggest evolution that we see in this trailer is the jump of the series into full 3D.
Right up there with that announcement is the fact that Pokemon X/Y is going to have a simultaneous worldwide launch. North America, Europe, Japan...we're all getting the game in October 2013. We may not have it the same day as one another, but October will indeed be launch month worldwide. Talk about a major localization effort unlike any Nintendo has taken on before!
Who knew that a 10 minute presentation could be so exciting?! At least, I hope that's the feeling you're experiencing after this Nintendo Direct. Leave a comment and let us know what you think! Did you like what you saw? Are you pumped for Oct. 2013? Are you already counting down the days?
