Pokémon X/Y are not sexualized games. Yet, some players keep pointing to instances that seem unintentionally so. Damn them!

Both X and Y allow players to interact with their Pocket Monsters by petting them. In Japan, however, this function is one reason why some Twitter users are dubbing the game "eroi" (エロい), or "erotic," because the looks of pleasure on the Poké faces.
