The Pokémon Daisuki Club (the principal Japanese Pokémon fan club) website and CoroCoro Magazine (a publication noted for breaking many Pokémon-related news stories) have confirmed not one, but two new Pokémon Battle Trozei!-themed 3DS LL (the name Japan uses for the 3DS XL) models. The first model is white with 113 different Pokémon faces on the front cover. These Pokémon are mostly random and feature Mewtwo, Charizard, Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde.Read More

Details of New Legendary Pokémon Xerneas and Yveltal Revealed!
· Xerneas is a Fairy-type—a brand-new type being introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Watch the awe-inspiring beauty of Xerneas’ exclusive move, Geomancy, which features rainbow-colored light that erupts from the earth around it. Xerneas has the special Ability Fairy Aura, which naturally takes effect in battle, strengthening Fairy-type moves for all Pokémon in battle. Be careful, because Fairy Aura also has a positive effect on opposing Pokémon that know Fairy-type moves.
· Dark- and Flying-type Yveltal is the only Pokémon that can learn the move Oblivion Wing, which sends Yveltal flying high into the sky to release a powerful beam of red light that scorches the ground below. The Destruction Pokémon’s special Ability, Dark Aura, is a counterpoint to Fairy Aura, raising the strength of Dark-type moves for all Pokémon in battle. This Ability is powerfully effective in Double and Triple Battles when facing multiple opponents simultaneously. So, when Yveltal is in battle, it’s smart for players to fill their team with Pokémon that can use Dark-type moves.Read More
