Nintendo's limited edition Pokémon-themed Nintendo 3DS units.
Rather than giving Pokémon X and Pokémon Y players immediate access to Pokémon Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie from Professor Sycamore at the game's start, players will instead be given the choice of a classic partner Pokémon - Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle - from the very first Pokémon games, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. Once a player has evolved this Pokémon into Venusaur, Charizard, or Blastoise and obtained its unique Mega Stone, the Pokémon will be able to Mega Evolve while in battle. Mega Venusaur, Mega Charizard, and Mega Blastoise will possess overwhelming powers never before seen in a Pokémon game. Players can choose fan favorite Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle when Pokémon X and Pokémon Y launch worldwide October 12, 2013, for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
Furthermore, the North American release of the games will see two special Nintendo 3DS XL hardware designs featuring imagery from Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. These systems come in Red or Blue and feature brand new Legendary Pokémon Xerneas and Yveltal.
The systems will launch on September 27 at a suggested retail price of $199.99 each.
Pokémon X and Pokémon Y themselves launch worldwide October 12, 2013, for the Nintendo 3DS.
