Pokemon X & Y Review


Pokemon has evolved more than ever and thanks to the release X & Y on 3DS you’ll be more hooked than you've even been. Whether you are seven or thirty seven, there is something about this game that just keeps you coming back.

On a basic level it’s quite strange how Pokemon X & Y manages to keep you hooked. For one, it’s a fairly repetitive game with a very basic story, although but perhaps this is part of its charm. The thing about Pokemon X & Y is that it’s quite easy to pick up and play and just as easy to keep playing. As you wander through its vast lands in order to fill up your Pokedex, you’ll become attached to your growing army of Pokemon as they level up, bringing with them new moves and ever evolving looks.

What’s really great about X & Y though is that it doesn’t bog you down with unnecessary tasks. Straight from the off you’ll find that the game is much faster paced than previous titles, instead you’re put straight into the action and from there you are free to build your catalogue of Pokemon, be it through random encounters or through finding wild Pokemon within the various grassy areas spread throughout the land. Within an hour or so you’ll also have access to your first gym as well as a pair of roller blades which speed up your movement and also allow you to perform various tricks thanks to the skateparks and bannisters spread throughout the game. You’ll even meet plenty of interesting people, who’ll give you access to all manner of interesting gifts.

While it’s not really anything that other games don’t do, you can now customise your character, be that by changing skin tone, clothes or accessories, this helps add something more to the game and at least helps you distinguish yourself from others, since you’ll often meet other online players when wandering around the land - providing you are connected to the internet of course.

The main changes made to X & Y’s gameplay come in the form of Mega Evolutions. These see Pokemon transform into an altogether different creature, removing weaknesses and adding new powers. This is handy as it can often give you an upper hand in battle, although it does have its limitations in that you can only summon one evolution during a battle, while not all of your Pokemon will be able to evolve.



Perhaps one of the most impressive changes in the latest game is the improvement of its the online features. Now you can search for players, start quick battles, trade, share videos and more. In this respect online challenges will often pop up when you are going about your adventure, which helps mix things up a little as well as distracting you from the addictiveness of your current single player campaign.

Other features worth mentioning include the mini games which can be accessed at any time using the lower screen and allow you to interact with your Pokemon, such as Berry Picker, which has you matching the berries to the Pokemon within a set time limit. Do this successfully and you’ll earn food to feed them, as well as unlocking the next difficulty level of the game. Finally, you can also access Super Training from the same area on the screen. This gives you access to mini games which help improve the skills of your Pokemon, as well as giving you yet another reason to be hooked to the game.

It’s on the presentation side that X & Y really evolves. For the first time the game is displayed in 3D and it looks fantastic. Both the environments and the Pokemon look wonderful, while the animations during fights look stunning. All of this is also backed up by the quirky orchestral sounds, which really helps up the overall quality feel of the game.

One major warning you must take heed of is that the game does not autosave, so you’ll need to make sure you save regularly and not waste hours of progress like I did on two occasions. Unfortunately after putting in around 8 hours without saving (I thought I did but it’s a long story), I closed the system with the game still running, at this point my son opened the game and switched to a different title, so I lost my save game. You’d have thought I would have learned my lesson but I did the same again later after getting some progress back. So be warned, save your game, especially if you have kids.

The Pokemon series has evolved into something quite special with X & Y. To be honest I wasn’t really expecting much, given that I am not really a huge fan of the series and wasn’t really thinking that I’d be drawn in to the title as much as I was, but therein lies the beauty of Pokemon X & Y, because in it’s simplicity lies a game with such depth and enjoyment that it's far too much fun to put down.

(Version Tested: Pokemon X - 3DS)

Pros

+ Highly Addictive
+ Looks Fantastic
+ Great Sounds
+ Online features are well designed

Cons

- Story is basic
- Repetitiveness may put some off

Great review Joe. I'm only at the part where you first meet the professor. I get distracted easily, whether it's a different game (Damn you Binding of Isaac) or playing/training with Kira (Braixen) and Chu-chu (Pikachu, bunch of cookies to anyone who gets that)

Been playing it all weekend, currently at 40 hours game time. It's really damn good. I love how they streamlined many of the online components and also the interface. I am currently trying to breed my first shiny using the Masuda Method. The game is too easy though. My Hawlucha (named El Toro from Jackie Chan Adventures) steamrolled the last 2 gyms I fought.

Can't agree with the repetitiveness tbh. If anything Pokemon is one of the least repetitive series out there since just about every match requires some kind of strategy. If it does get repetitive then you can always change your team up a bit, there's hundreds of the things running around the place now so...

Got to say, I'm thoroughly addicted to this gen, which has surprised me as I've still yet to complete Black (never bought B/W 2). I've even gone out of my way to capture every pokemon I come across and I'm now almost on the third form of many 'mons despite only just having beat the 2nd gym. Liking the online side of it too, even shared a few O-Powers with Nox. There's so much to do it hide the repetitive side of the pokemon games very well, at the start at least.

i have pokemon Y. friend code is 1950-8349-9672. currently around lv 36. the mega evolutions really don't make a lot of difference, although it seems that charizards triggers drought to activate. current mega evolution pokemon i have are Blaziken, Charizard and lucario. anyone want to trade me a Charizardite X?

Wonder trade is a good way to up your pokemiles quickly as everyone just trades the commons.

when you have the PSS screen on the bottom screen you have to manually connect by pressing the blue wifi button. bit annoying as you have to re-connect every time you sleep your 3ds
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 3 years ago
On the PSS page (yellow screen) there is a blue wifi symbol to enable internet. your friends, acquantances (people you traded/battled) and passers by who are people in the same area as you. You can give all of these people O-powers, trade or battle... It also has in-game VoIP with friends I think.

Johno Muller's avatar

exp share helps that Nuzlocke too, plus they've fiddled with the catch rate. I've only failed with one ball so far and that was Snorlax.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I don't like how the Exp-Share works in 6th gen and I also imagine that the Super Training will help with a Nuzlocke, (If you allow it) as if the game wasn't already easy
Pyroloveridge's avatar
Pyroloveridge 3 years ago
nah I've failed a few balls so far the Critical Catch is back though which is nice. not going to bother with the nuzlocke
Robichoico's avatar
Robichoico 3 years ago
To me the point of a nuzlocke is to use Pokemon you would never use normally.

Super training is good for people who are too lazy to EV count... I had a friend with a notepad that was full of marks just from EV/IV training.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Super Training is good for me cos I have send pretty much over 1000 hours since Soul Silver EV Training/Breeding (Soul Silver 800 hours gametime, Black 400 Hours gametime , Black 2 200 hours gametime)
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 3 years ago
I have False Swipe on my Honedge (Doublade now), Swords Dance twice and hit em with False Swipe makes everything an easy catch. And if I'm sweeping a trainer, Swords Dance once and Fury Cutter repeatedly OHK on everything after the first pokemon, also works on Hordes
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
False Swipe is a great move that more people should use, my Quackling uses it

Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Ok I take that back. Tony Tony Chopper Fanboy much?
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 3 years ago
The lack of knowledge for pokemon moves and evolutions at the moment is killing my decision making... like I know Doublade evolves by stone but I don't know when the optimum time is, like which is the last useful move it picks up and if Aegislash learns any that may or may not be better?

Honedge can have a pretty meaty attack, all moves are physical so far, even the ghost type ones.

Ninjask but no Shedninja? I have a shiny Eevee on my Pokemon Black cart so come Christmas I will have a Shiny Sylveon

I'm getting annoyed that there is no good counter for Mega Lucario yet, and everyone I have faced is using him, admittedly I've only had 3 battles but unless i level up my gabite by 47 levels I can't think of a good counter.

Pyroloveridge 3 years ago
wait I think I could use a hippowdon too, time to work on one I guess
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 3 years ago
Mega Blaziken works a treat against Mega Lucario. Free Torchic on the mystery gift has a held Blazikenite. Other than that... Mega Lucario is a good counter to Mega Lucario
Pyroloveridge's avatar
Pyroloveridge 3 years ago
Yeah I used the Blaziken but got trounced on the move set, mainly as i imagine the other guy was ahead of me game wise so had a better set up

Dusk, Net, Timer, Repeat and Quick so far. Also, Pokeballs have a higher catch rate for me so far. Only had one fail, and I've caught many that were closer to full health than empty with them some at levels as high as 32. Yeah Trapinch.

Yeah I am avoiding the megastone locations I want to complete it first before I look for stuff like that. I do not even know the full list of mega evolutions I know it is all the older pokemon and the only one I have just now is my Heracross did have a pidgeotto but I wanted to use the new ones.
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
Anyone else finding this game insanely easy, I'm finding myself rushing through a bit as to avoid been over leveled. I have five badges and all my Pokemon are about level 45, and I have Mega Lucario, Mega Blastoise, Chesnaught, Doublade, Talonflame and Tyrunt (which should evolve any minute now)

I'm thinking that the only reason Charizard got 2 different Mega evolutions is gonna be because of a Pokemon film, same with another pokemon.

I laugh each time I see people using Charizard online, it's a terrible Pokemon. Granted I use Pikachu but that little rodent is a powerhouse
Zombieflamingo's avatar

Without looking at the list of mega evolutions some of the older ones I would like to see have one are Heracross, Pidgeot, Kabutops and Lapras. Also has anyone found a Mawile yet still not found one.

It is a shame Charizard is so weak as he is one of my favourites, its the same with Flareon its probably tied with espeon for my Eevee evolution but it is just so weak.

Flareon learns Flare Blitz and Flame Charge now... good luck finding a Fire Stone though, there is only one and it's 3 routes after you find Eevee

You can buy them in a shop in paris (forgot the name) can you not. It took me about an hour to find an Eevee there after I gave the first to my friend.

I spent longer trying to evolve Eevee into a Sylveon than I took to catch, use and box it.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
How does it evolve into sylveon? I assume there will be a grass and ice area for the other two as well.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Really, Flareon learns Flare Blitz now? I'm so happy
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 3 years ago
Eevee needs to be happy and know a Fairy move. If you want Espeon or Umbreon it can't know a Fairy move because Sylveon takes priority.
