[edit] Gameplay

The gameplay is Pokemon Y is slightly different from past games. Game Freak has added Sky Battles, and Horde Battles. This game also different points of view too. It is usually to show off the capabilities of the 3DS. Triple Battles, and Rotation Battles make a return from the 5th Generation also. Super Training is a new addition to the series. It makes calculating IVs, and EVs easier, to show off the true potential of your Pokemon. Pokemon Amie is a feature that allows you to "hang out" or play with your Pokemon. You can feed them, make faces, and play minigames. (Pokemon Amie and Super Training are both accessed through the bottom screen of the 3DS. Use the L/R buttons to switch between them)

The two biggest changes added to the series is the introduction of the Fairy-type, and Mega Evolutions. The fairy-type was added to balance the type chart a little more, according to Game Freak. Dragon, Dark, and FIghting are all weak against it. While Steel, and Poison are super effective against it.

Mega Evolutions ae basically battle-only evolutions that make your Pokemon stronger for a limited time. Some Pokemon's mega evolution affects the original typing, stats, and ability. Check the list below about all of the Mega Pokemon.
