The end of the Japanese broadcast of Pocket Monsters: The Origin anime special revealed that each version of the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y 3DS games will have a different version of the Mega Charizard Pokémon. Pokémon X will feature a Mega Charizard X, while Pokémon Y players will be able to see a Mega Charizard Y.

In addition, the Japanese opening sequences — the female protagonist and male protagonist versions — debuted on Wednesday.

In the upcoming games, certain Pokémon can transform through Mega Evolution during battle. The new form of Evolution changes a Pokémon's appearance and increases stats. Pokémon may also switch their Ability or type after they Mega Evolve. Pokémon that can Mega Evolve need a Mega Stone for the new process, and the transformed monsters return to their original form after a battle concludes.

Mega Stones such as Lucarionite, the item that allows Lucario to Mega Evolve, are hidden in the games' Kalos region. However, players must participate in a limited Wi-Fi distribution event through Nintendo Network to get a Torchic with Blaziken's Blazikenite Mega Stone. Blazikenite will not be available during normal gameplay. The Wi-Fi distribution period will begin on the day the games launch.

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will ship for the Nintendo 3DS worldwide on October 12. Pre-orders will open in Japan on August 10. In Japan, fans can buy either the game pre-loaded on a SDHC card bundled with a limited-edition Nintendo 3DS XL in "Xerneas and Yveltal Blue" or (when bought at Pokémon Centers) "Premium Gold."

The Pokémon XY (Pokémon the Series: XY) anime series tie-in will debut on October 17 in Japan. Cartoon Network will then show two episodes from Pokémon the Series: XY in the United States on October 19, right after the American premiere of the latest Pokémon film, Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened (Gekijōban Pocket Monster Best Wishes! Shinsoku no Genosekuto: Myuutsū Kakusei).
