The Pokémon X and Y new game is shaping up to be a significant update to the series. While Pokémon generally lags behind a bit compared to other RPGs, at this point the series is in a class all its own. Game Freak has created an all new set of pokes for this edition, established Fairy as a new type and has even added mega evolutions to the mix. The Pokémon company is certainly ramping up interest in the series for this latest update, however, with the soon to be released anime based on Red from the original games.
