Pokémon X & Y themed 3DS XLs set for North America and Europe


Yesterday’s Pokémon Direct brought news of the Pokémon Bank, Poké Transporter, and the return of Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle as starters, though news of Pokémon-themed 3DS XLs perhaps excited most.

Available in either Red or Blue, these feature etched artwork of new Legendary Pokémon Xerneas and Yveltal. Though, releasing on September 27th across North America and Europe sees them arriving two weeks earlier than Pokémon X & Y, and it is confirmed that there won’t be a pre-installed copy of the game included on the handheld.

Pokémon X & Y themselves release worldwide on October 12th.
