See Four New Pokémon in Action in the Newest Gameplay Trailer

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y got a new game trailer this morning, and shed more light on the game, including four new Pokémon, when it arrives in October for the 3DS. Say hello to Fletchling, Pancham, Helioptile and Gogoat.


The game will take place in an entirely new region, named Kalos, whose central hub is Lumiose City. You can see its landscape and features in the video above.

Beginning at 0:44 you can see the new Pokémon. They are, in order, Fletchling, a normal- and flying-type Pokémon; Pancham, a fighting type with a brand-new move called "Parting Shot" that allows him to switch out for another Pokémon in the trainer's group; Helioptile, a normal- and electric-type whose hit points are restored by half of the damage its Parabolic Charge causes; and Gogoat, a grass-type Pokémon who will give players "a reliable way to travel certain parts of Lumiose City."

Serious question.

Could someone tell me why as an adult that I'd want to play this?

I was too old for the original bout of Pokemon hysteria that swept the world with the cartoons, stickers etc so have always thought of this as a young kids series. However, I see people are genuinely excited for this release and I'd like to know what it is about the game itself that would make it a purchase?

Is that that the gameplay itself is actually pretty deeper and additive but the previous marketing efforts (cartoon etc.) have distorted my perception; or is the excitement something driven by nostalgia, in the way that I'd fall over myself if they released a AAA title based on He-Man?
