Bond with your Pokémon X and Y team in “Pokémon-Amie”


As part of the Nintendo 3DS exclusive’s presence during today’s Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that players will be able to interact with their Pokémon X and Pokémon Y team in a new way.

“Pokémon-Amie,” as it is known to be called, will allow players to use the Nintendo 3DS touch screen to build a stronger bond with your Pokémon, which will then aid you in future battles.

It’s not entirely clear how deep this will be, or if just a mini-game addition of sorts, but we’ll keep you posted.

Nintendo 3DS exclusives Pokémon X and Y will launch worldwide on October 12th.
