The show also revealed a new anime special based off of the first generation games, so if you wish to know more then read on!
We'll start off with the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y news. First off it has been revealed that if you want to Mega Evolve a Pokémon in battle we have a button placed next to the move selection which you can press in order to Mega Evolve your Pokémon as long as the Pokémon is holding its Mega Stone. It has also been confirmed that choosing to Mega Evolve your Pokémon doesn't waste a turn in battle and you'll still be able to attack during the same turn.
It has also been confirmed that Fire-Type Pokémon are resistant to Fairy-Type Attacks, however Fairy-Types themselves take neutral damage from Fire-Type moves. Speaking of Fairy Pokémon, Sylveon was quietly confirmed to have the Cute Charmability, quite fitting of such a cute Eeveelution. It was also revealed that we no longer have to hold down the B button in order to run as running is now the default in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, with holding the B button down now allowing you to simply walk.
One of the biggest announcements to come from the Pokémon Game Show was the reveal of a brand new anime special that will be airing in Japan on the 2nd of October. The special will go by the name of Pokémon: The Origin and is focused on the first generation of Pokémon and will be following the adventures of Red and Blue. While not much else is known about the special at the moment, a trailer for it has been released by the official Japanese YouTube channel and shows us that Red will be meeting Brock and Lance during his travels as well as doing battle with Blue.
