Additionally, if you are playing or have played a Pokémon game like Pokémon X or Pokémon Y, then you would want to know how to start a new game in Pokémon X. If you require so then you are certainly at the right place.

In this article, we will tell you how to start a new Pokemon game in simple and easy steps. So, let’s get started:

What are Pokémon X and Y?

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are video games (role playing) and were developed by Game Freak.

Both of the games were published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. Eventually, they hold the privilege of being the first instalment in the sixth generation of the Pokémon series which is a role-playing video game series.

The first announcement was made on January 8, 2013, through an exclusively special Nintendo Direct by Satoru Iwata. However, both of them were released worldwide on October 12, 2013.

You can imagine the popularity of the game just by going through the statistics which says that the games have sold 14.15 million copies, as of June 2015.

The game became quite popular from the first week of its release as four million copies were sold worldwide in the first weekend. One of the several reasons behind the popularity of the game is that it was the first Pokémon game with 3D functions.

The game can be played in seven different official languages which include English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, and Korean.
Pokémon X and Y are the first titles to be presented in fully 3D polygonal graphics which in turn allows more interaction with the game world.

As a matter of fact, let us tell you that Pokémon is not a Japanese word. It is actually a mixture of two words which are “Pocket” and “Monster”.
On a personal note, I also used to think that “Pokémon” must be a Japanese word but the above fact proved me wrong.

Some features of Pokémon X:

1: It is a fully 3D gameplay which includes awesome battle graphics and 8-way movement.

2: Customization features which let the user train and customize the character.

3: There is a lot’s of online functionality available for the gameplay.

4: A whopping number of 400 Pokémon’s found in the game.

5: One can also retain the best changes from Generation fifth which includes unlimited TM use and others.

Some fast facts about Pokémon X and Y are as follows:

1: Each of the Pokémon worlds is based on a real location of the world. The Kalos is based and conceptualized on the real location of France.

This is the reason the café’s at Kalos offer “Limonade”, “Café au lait” and “chocolate chaud” and the people are often found saying “Bonjour” and “Au revoir”. Also, the reason is the same behind the similar look of Prism Tower as the Eiffel Tower.

2: Pokémon X and Pokémon Y has lots of references from the past games of the Pokémon series but did you know that it also contains the references from other games developed by “Game Freaks”.

Yeah, you heard it right; Game Freak also develops games other than Pokémon role-playing video games.

3: The official soundtrack which was titled as “Nintendo 3DS Pokémon X-Y Super music collection” was released on November 13, 2013. The Genre of the music being Electronic, Classic and rock with a length of 3:30:00.

4: This game also offers an optional Pokémon Bank service which is a cloud-based service based on a paid model. This allows you to store up to 3,000 Pokémon online which can be shared.

The official soundtrack showed its presence in the billboard- Japan top selling Albums with a position at 12 along with a position of 143 and 5 in US Billboard 200 and US Billboard Top soundtracks respectively.
