Guys,I've decided.I'm gonna go on an information blackout.From here on out,I will avoid all news on this game so I can be surprised as much as possible when playing.

I'll still be here to discuss features we know so far and to keep this topic alive.

I'm the exact opposite of that. I MUST spoil myself before I play the game. Well, in all honesty, I mainly only wanna spoil myself to all the new Pokemon and their base stats.

I might do the same. Just tell Firemaster to use the Spoilers.

I have decided that I'm going to Pokegen every single Pokemon for my collection, and I will transfer them to Y. However, if they DO make IVs easier, then I will make a whole new collection that is legit, but I will still transfer my hacked pokes. So far, I have made all the Event Pokemon, and Pokemon numbers 1-4 (bulbasaur to charmander), and I'm making sure they are always "legit". xD But if they do make IVs easier, I'll transfer all my 25 Elgyems with 25 different Natures and have Synchronize as an ability, and I'll also transfer my Foreign Ditto with perfect IVs.

Yes, I realize my username is ironic. No need to point that out.

I wish I could get all the Pokemon without transferring though. Here's to hoping that all Pokemon will be available in X and Y. But then again, this is Troll Freak.

There was a review of the first hour of the game by Gamespot, but I felt that was spoiler material so, I didn't link it. It's on a topic (keywords provided in prior sentence) on this board. I don't know if you consider that music spoilers but, I gave a heads up so there would be enough warning if you didn't want to see or hear that sort of stuff. Much of the other information like ideas that went into the games and Pokémon that were officially revealed aren't spoilers. They're pre-release, official information and I give enough warning anyway. I figure it'd be nice to compile selected information that had to do w/ the games (meaning not news about the Anime and TCG) in one place (credited and easy enough to find) plus the backup as updates (also to make sure these topics are seen as on-topic). In a way, it helps hold us over while we anticipate X & Y's release. Nice discussion points and images were shared. If they are too much, I suggest you turn off TTI for the direct links.

On 12th October budding Pokémon masters will be able to explore first-hand the beautiful polygonal 3D environments of the French-inspired region of Kalos, where trainers rush around on roller-skates and a giant Ryhorn snoozes outside your front door. We caught up with Pokémon X and Y's Director Junichi Masuda and Chief Designer Hironobu Yoshida to find out more about the development and features of the upcoming title.

Nintendo Life: It's lovely to meet you both today. Thank you very much for letting us play X & Y, we really enjoyed our time with the game. Let’s have a quick ice-breaker question, out of the three new starter Pokémon (Fennekin, Chespin and Froakie) which one would you pick?

Junichi Masuda: The one I pick the most is Fennekin. During my play-testing I found myself always picking Fennekin as my first Pokémon. It’s just so cute and you feel like you really want to take care of it!

Hironobu Yoshida: Well... I like frogs, so Froakie is the one I always pick. *Laughs*
http://i.imgur.com/5gKoWUF.jpg

NL: We're big Froakie fans too! Sorry Chespin, no love for you here today. So, why did you decide to name this generation ‘X’ and ‘Y’? Do they hold any significance beyond the design of legendary Pokémon Xerneas and Yvetal?

Junichi Masuda: We actually came up with the titles before we even had the legendary Pokémon designs. The ‘X’ and ‘Y’ titles come from the X and Y axis and we used these as ways to represent different ways of thought, different opinions, but also where these axis overlap. The message that we wanted to send and the theme we had in mind was finding that common ground that we all share.

Hironobu Yoshida: When it came to the legendary Pokémon design we knew that when viewed from far away we wanted them to look kind of like an X or a Y, so that was the main direction we went for.

NL: In Pokémon Black and White 2 there was a key system, which helped you catch the Regis and gave you access to version exclusive content, such as the Black City and the White Forest. Will there be a similar feature in X and Y?

Junichi Masuda: In regards to the key system that existed in Black and White 2 that was something that we implemented after we had the balance right in Pokémon Black and White, so we put that in to add in some more options as a sequel to the game. But as X and Y is a totally new entry we have added a lot of new changes, and completely rebalanced the game, so we didn’t really think about putting in a similar system this time around.

A whole new world

NL: The look and feel of Kalos is inspired by France; are there other countries which you’d like to base future Pokémon games on?

Junichi Masuda: We’re always thinking about places in the real world to get ideas and inspiration from. This time with Pokémon X and Y we focused on the theme of ‘beauty’ and we really felt that France matched that. The name ‘Kalos’ is actually an ancient Greek word that means ‘beauty’, so that ties in with the theme too. So inspiration for future regions really depends on what kind of theme we’re going for and finding a place in the real world that matches that.

The theme of X and Y is 'beauty' and France matches that. 'Kalos' is actually an ancient Greek word that means 'beauty'.

NL: We loved all of the little cafes dotted around Vaniville Town and Luminose City selling 'chocolat chaud' and 'café au lait’, the French inspiration is very clear!

Hironobu Yoshida: I think that with Pokémon X and Y, even people who have never been to France will maybe play the games, and possibly later on go to France and recognise some of the locations – that would be quite fun! *laughs*

NL: What has it been like moving into fully 3D environments when you've spent so long making the core series in a top-down viewpoint?

Junichi Masuda: This time with the move to full 3D you can freely manipulate the camera angles, which you couldn’t do before. Being able to move cameras around freely and frame the scene just how we wanted added a lot of new possibilities, but at the same time a few challenges. It was difficult trying to get that right. For example, we can show scenes from any angle, but due to hardware limitations we can’t show things that are really far away, the rendering power isn’t quite there so there’s a drop in performance. Because of this we had to find ways around this, for example if we wanted to show a town from far away we can do that camera angle but we have to maybe use a lower polygon model for the background. So there’s a lot of new challenges that we have to deal with by having this new freedom with the camera angles.

NL: Has the move to 3D and increased challenges meant that you’ve had to increase the size of your development team at Game Freak?

We had around 200 people working on the development of X and Y, as well as localisation staff. In the credits around 500 names that appear!

Junichi Masuda: Yes, definitely, we have a much larger group of people working on the games this time around. On the actual development of the game we have around 200 people working on X and Y, and then with the global simultaneous release of the titles we have more localisation staff and other people to make that possible. I think in the credits there is around 500 names that appear. And even outside of those people, there are some involved in the development of the game in some way!

NL: In X and Y there are a new group of villains called Team Flare – could you tell us a little bit about them?

Junichi Masuda: So this time around I think that the villainous team are a bit more charming, and funny than maybe other groups in past games. But with the global simultaneous release of X and Y I really want people to experience Team Flare for themselves, and find out exactly what they’re up to.

NL: *laughs* Okay, let's try to keep this spoiler-free then! We absolutely love the roller-skating and how you can ride about on Pokémon in the new game! What are your personal favorite aspects of X & Y?

Junichi Masuda: Ever since the development of Black and White finished and even before it went on sale, I wanted to focus on the concept of beauty this time around, and I really like the world we managed to create. But when it comes to a favorite specific element I think it has to be Pokémon Amie mode. I’ve always wanted to be able to reach out and pet Pokémon, and with Pokémon Amie I’ve finally been able to make that possible, as you can can also play with them. For example you can do little copying mini-games, where you tilt your head and your Pokémon copy you, or maybe you close your eyes and they close their eyes too – of course you can’t see them, you’ve got your eyes shut, but they’re doing it! *laughs*

NL: Are there any battle or stat benefits to regularly using Pokémon Amie mode?

Junichi Masuda: Yes, by doing this you build a more personal relationship with your Pokémon, and it has some gameplay benefits. The better friends you become, the more your Pokémon might start dodging moves in battle, or landing more critical hits.

Hironobu Yoshida: From a graphics designer perspective I was in charge of creating the Pokédex for X and Y, so this is my favorite element of X and Y. This time we’ve been able to move into 3D so the actual Pokémon model will appear on the Pokédex screen and you can freely move it around, and look at the Pokémon from any angle.
