Meet the New Pokémon of X and Y

Following the recent announcement of Pokémon X and Y for the 3DS, Nintendo has released a hefty collection of images showing off the latest Pokémon in the series.

The three main Pokémon shown above are the starter Pokémon in X and Y. The strengths and weaknesses of the different types of Pokémon remain the same: Grass-type is strong against Water-type, but weak against Fire-type. Fire-type can take on Grass-type, but is weak against Water. Water-type, meanwhile, is strong against Fire-type, but weak against Grass.

The last two illustrations are of the two Legendary Pokémon (doesn’t the deer one remind you of the Forest Spirit from ‘Princess Mononoke?’), and their weights and heights have already been announce. Xerneus is 3.0 m (9’10”), 215.0 Kg (474 lbs.), while Yveltal is 5.8 m (19’00”), 203.0 Kg (447.5 lbs.).
