Pokémon-Ami & PSS systems, new Pokémon also in spotlight

The Pokémon Company presented a number of new trailers and commercials for the upcoming Pokémon X and Y games. The overview trailer focuses on the fight system and graphics, as well as the new mob fights. The trailer also features sky battles and the new "mega transformations," as well as the new fairy type Pokémon.

The trailers also feature the new Poképal system (Pokémon-Ami in America). The system allows players to socialize with the Pokémon and build a stronger connection with them as well as feed them snacks. Lastly, it explains the PSS system. The PSS system allows players to check on other players around them using the 3DS streetpass feature.

The television commercials also highlight the games' new features:

The latest generation of Pokémon games will launch worldwide on October 12. Starting that same day, the Pokemon: Black and White!: Adventures in Unova and Beyond television anime will show "some exciting new Pokémon and characters from Pokémon X and Pokémon Y" in the United States. 

The Cartoon Network will then show two episodes from the new anime 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).
