Latest English info for X/Y

With the recent announcement of information from CoroCoro; a lot of information has come to light, as well as the English information as well!

First off lets start with the new trailer; it shows us a lot of new stuff like the main city of the game that we shall go into in  a minute. It also gives us a look at battles a bit more and shows us some moves for the starters; as well as quick gameplay of the new pokemon. It also shows we can interact with the environment and sit down on benches and things. 

Next we will go into the region; the other day, it was announced that this region would be called the Karos Region, it has now been confirmed to be called the Kalos Region; with the main city going from Miare city to Luminose City. 
The Region of Kalos appears to be shaped like a star and on top of this; the Pokedex is broken down into three sub-regions: Coastal Kalos, Mountain Kalos and Central Kalos. This may mean we are getting a lot of new Pokemon or that we have an extremely large Regional Dex. Comprising of Gen1-6 Pokemon.

Now for the new pokemon

The Panda Pokemon Yancham; has been confirmed to be called Pancham; a mix of Panda and cham or derived from Punch'am. Its new move is called Parting Shot; which lowers the stats of its opponent but switches out the user. 

Next we have the Robin Pokemon Yayakoma; which has been confirmed to be called Fletchling; a mix of Fletch and Hatching or Hatchling. As stated the other day it knows Flame Charge; so this could mean it might turn into a Fire/Flying type. 

Now we have the Lizard Pokemon Elekiteru; which has been confirmed to be called Helioptile; A mix of Helios and Reptile. Its new move has been named Parabolic Charge; which heals the user and damages the enemy. 

Lastly we have the Goat Pokemon Gogoat; this Pokemons name is the same in English and Japanese so nothing has changed there. It uses Horn Leech. 

As for the starters; it was shown what moves they acquire early on in their development. 

Chespin has been shown at level 5 with the moves Tackle, Growl and Vine Whip, at level 8 he gets access to Rollout 

Fennekin has been shown at level 5 with the moves Scratch, Tail Whip and Ember; at level 8 (although shown at 11) he gets access to Howl

Froakie was shown at level 8 already and has access to Pound, Growl, Bubble and Quick Attack. 

What is interesting to note is that the first type move starters usually get is around level 6-8; but these have them at level 5 already. So this either means that the Starters are given to the player at level 1 or that these moves are automatically available on the starting Pokemon. 

We got a few pictures showing the option to customise the players looks; apparently its confirmed that accessories and other clothes can be gotten throughout the game but so far its only shown the images of different skin colour etc. 

Female trainer options
Another new feature; which whilst not game breaking, it is new to the Pokemon main games, you can now move diagonally! 

Finally; we got a glimpse at the Box Arts for the games as well; and they are looking superb! Roll on October! Because these games are going to be awesome.
