Pokemon X & Y

Media Monday
Game Review

I am one of those people who has both Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. I wouldn’t have both if it weren’t for my recent hospital stay, but when I needed something to occupy myself I asked for my grandfather to get me Y (I bought X back when the games first came out).

I really love Pokemon, and I think the main advantage of X & Y over the earlier games is the Experience Share, which if I remember correctly is a new feature. Either way, I beat X years ago, but while replaying Y I found myself desperate to get to the point where I was given the experience share so that I would have something to do.

Another great updateย is character customizations. I’m just ‘girly’ or ‘creative’ enough to love having the chance to dress up my character in all the different outfits that you can buy. Since beating X I’ve bought nearly all the clothes I possibly can and make my character try on some of the craziest combinations.

I also love the Mega Evolutions. I really didn’t play much Pokemon before X & Y came out, but I fell in love with the idea of Mega Evolutions as soon as I realized what it meant. But it certainly adds a new level of excitement and I loved having to find all of the Mega Stones.

Overall the game is just spectacular and the graphics are amazing. I rarely play games in 3D mode because I’m sensitive to such things, but when I do it never fails to impress and make me feel as though I’m living in the game (which is why we play, after all).

X or Y?

This is a hard question for me to answer but I feel as though I should address it because it will be asked. My answer may not satisfy because I’m going to have to say that theres not enough of a difference for me to make a decision. It really depends on what Legendary Pokemon you want, because there are so few other exclusive Pokemon that you shouldn’t make too much of a decision based on them.
