Japan uses Pokemon X & Y info! It's super effective!

Nintendo is planning to release more details of the upcoming 3DS exclusive Pokémon X and Pokémon Y on May 19th, but some snippets have already escaped into the wild courtesy of Japan's CoroCoro comic.

The game will take place in the Karos region, and the main gameplay hub will be Miare City, with its distinctive Eiffel Tower style landmark. You'll be able to create your own character, not only choosing between male and female but deciding on skin and hair colour as well.

Most notably, we're getting our first data on the latest additions to the Pokedex, with four new Pokémon detailed in the comic's feature. Yancham is "mischievous", a fighting-type Pokémon whose special techniques include something called Parting Remark. Yayakoma is a flying Pokémon that can use the fire technique Flame Charge. Elicitel is an electric type which can use Parabola Charge, a technique that damages enemies while restoring HP. Finally there's Gogoat, a grass type Pokémon that you'll be able to ride around on.

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be out in October, and will be the first main entry in the long-running series exclusively for 3DS. It also introduces full 3D polygon graphics, replacing the 2D sprites that have defined the series since 1996.
