Ash and Pikachu have been shown in promotional materials, but any sidekicks (new or returning) have yet to be shown. The series starts on October 17th in Japan, although Noivern will be debuting in an upcoming episode of Pokémon Best Wishes: Decolora Adventure! on August 15th.

  1. I like his new look. It makes him look just a little older and I hope that means he’ll start acting like he did in DP where he actually knew stuff and was somewhat competent. At this point in the show I like it when old and new collide and it shows just how much he’s grown over the series.He can act goofy and stupid at times,that’s just his personality, but when it comes down to battling I think they need to show that he actually has experience and knows what he’s doing. By the time the show hit DP they had taken a number of steps forward. BW took just as many steps or even more back in a lot of ways…….

  2. hmmmmm my original comment was deleted. Oh well I like the new look for him. He looks a little older. I hope that means he acts like he did in DP where he actually knew what he was doing and was more competent in battling.

    1. Ash isn’t that bad in BW. Sure he’s not as good as DP (mainly because unova was kind of like semi-reboot aka kanto 2.0) The best examples i can give are the 3rd,5th,& 7th gyms. Also Ash’s league battle with Stephan.

      1. when a veteran pokemon like pikachu loses in a battle with a snivy that just started even with out electric moves. ash was bad in BW not to this pikachu has taken out legendary pokemon

        1. In the Clay gym battle when oshawott was blinded by sandstorm was told it to spin using water gun to get rid of the sandstorm then pointed straight upward so it could rain back down and clean oshawott’s eyes. In that same battle he used roggenrola knowing with it’s sturdy ability it would help tank against Clay’s excadrill. In his battle with Burgh swadloon wasn’t that evasive of a pokemon so Ash told it to use string shot on nearby object to pull itself out the way in order to doge attacks. In the first gym battle when oshawott lost his scalchop within some distance. Ash commanded oshawott to use watergun and ricochet the scalchop back to it. In his battle against Brycen to counter cryogonal’s rapid spin Ash told pignite to aim for the center of its rotation with fire pledge. In his gym battle against Elesa knowing that her tynamo could only tackle in a straight line told pikachu to use thunderbolt on the battle field to make it jagged and rocky so pikachu could wait for the perfect timing to dodge and attack. When Ash battled Roxie he told Leavanny to use energy ball to lower her koffing’s sp.def. Then used string shot to stop from moving and reel in for another close range energy ball. In ash’s leauge battle against Stephan he taught palpitoad sludge wave to poison zebstrika as well as confusing it with supersonic. In that same battle Ash told leavanny to use string shot to wrap Sawk up to bulk up would not work. Again in that same battle Ash taught Krookadile aerial ace to take out sawk.

          With all of that being said Ash was not all that bad in BW. And Pikachu losing to Snivy was explained with the fact that pikachu couldn’t use electric type attacks and both ash and pikachu were confused because of it . This is why you can hardly count that first match. It would have been worse if Zekrom didn’t take pikachu’s electricity away. Now if pikachu didn’t get its electricity taken away i would agree but since that didn’t happen i don”t.

          1. i know levels don’t get taking into count in the anime but where talking a least lvl.50 pikachu against a lvl 5 snivy a magikarp could win with those odds the fact that they reset ash as a trainer was dumb. they made him out to be a rookie trainer i.e Without thinking, he throws a Poké Ball with out trying to weaken it first in BW ep.02 and it happens not once but twice. once he hit iris and second at a Deerling the only other time this ever happened was in kanto when he first began(and don’t retort that he was excited to see new pokemon cause it never happened in johto,hoenn,or sinnoh)

          2. Actually Ash did try to catch a pokemon without battling out of excitement in Hoenn. In the episode where Ash caught his sceptile Ash tried to catch a random wild treecko just by throwing the pokeball at the beginning of the episode. And i just re-watched the episode to make sure i was right. I know you said levels aren’t taken into account but its more like they dont exist period anynmore. The only time levels were stated to be like in the games were the first few episodes of kanto and 1 episode in johto. From then on levels dont exist in the same way in the anime as the games. In the anime its not treated as a number. Either way i still stand by my opinion of Ash not being that bad in BW and the fact that pikachu losing to a snivy because it COULD’NT use electricity is better than Ash losing if pikachu could have used electricity.

          3. if a black belt in karate could beat a novice with only one arm with a cold, then ashes pikachu could have beaten a snivy with no battle experience with only quick attack and iron tail

          4. I’m not saying that the battle wasn’t bullcrap I’m just saying that the justification to it made it not that bad and that BW Ash isn’t that bad. Based on the fact that Trip basically represented a prodigy i think what they should have done is let Ash win the first battle then trip gets pissed and leaves to train a a crap ton. And then Trip could beat Ash the other times. But my main point is that BW Ash wasn’t that bad and that Pikachu vs Snivy was at least somewhat justified. Also did you even look at my statement to why BW Ash isn’t that bad? I ask this because you keep throwing the same thing at my face despite the fact i have made a counter argument. Although i did like your black belt metaphor are you said black belt or did you just think of that?

          5. I dunno, maybe Zekrom weakend Pikachu more than just by taking its electrical abilities away, I mean Pickachu is completely an electric type, maybe it weakened its entire being and that was the point of them making Ash lose. No even tries to consider this as a possibility. I think they were showcasing the legendaries ability to absorb energy like electricity with it regeneration tail thing

          6. Do remember though that Snivy left its old trainer because she felt they weren’t strong enough, she knew a really powerful move from the first episode we met her..

          7. Me and dewkage are talking about Trips Serperior as a snivy during the first episoe of BW.

      1. AHAHA!! well but it;s looks weird, he looks older but if you see the body without his legs he looks younger

        1. He does look younger without the legs. But on an interesting note there is a lock of hair over Ash’s right ear. That could be due to either an improved animation style or he may actually age. With that and the fact he looks older there is a slim chance he will be 11.

  3. Ash was more smarter on pokemon diamond and pearl he made a lot of tactis but on BW he was a piece of shit

    1. Ash wasn’t that bad in BW. He did plenty of smart things. Sure maybe not as much as Hoenn an Sinnoh but he isn’t that bad in BW.

      1. At least he wasn’t as bad as Cameron ‘hurr durr I’ve won all 8 badges and made it to the championships but screw type advantages!’

        The guy throws out a Ferrothorn to battle a Pignite. And we’re expected to believe he defeated the Gym Leaders of Unova? I know the audience of this show has and always will be children, but I’m pretty sure even a six year old pokemon player was watching that episode and shaking their head in despair.

        1. Serebii posted a picture where fenneking is battling with chespin, where i can see it?

          1. I second this, they did full battles and even double battles and I want to see it…

          2. Yeah why is he asking you..? lol, I just replied thinking he was talking to site owners but nope haha

  4. I really hope ash gets Froakie on his team and fully evolves it. Im dying for a series of Pokemon where Ash has a fully evolved water starter 🙂 Please let it happen ! 🙂

    1. yes because he has a squartle, totodile, he didnt get a mudkip and piplup, and oshawott is the best pokemon water and he never evolve into a dewott

      1. Lord knows if Ash had a Feraligatr I would be just too happy. Oshawott is not the best water Pokémon but has a certain charm I love about him in the animé 🙂 That being said so did squirtle with the squirtle squad and his sunglasses, totodile with his RANDOM DANCING ( icarly fans 😉 ) and Oshawott with his masculine edge and soft lovey dovey side hahah 😀

          1. My gosh.. im sorry but dang, this is not a Nintendo support site, try google to find a number or something

    2. Ash is probably gonna get chespin and froakie and the female character will have fennekin

      1. I wouldn’t mind Ash having Chespin and Froakie, But if they were every considering giving him just 2 starters, id be like…. ah come on just give him all 3 haha 😛 🙂

    1. mabye in the last episode of BW ash becomes a flipping pokemon master and then his son explores kalos. the ash design could be what he looks like when he sees his child off?

      1. Are you kidding me… he still looks like a kid just maybe a year older or so. That’s not going to happen

  5. Is it bad I was kind of hoping that he wouldn’t bring pikachu with him? GET A NEW ELECTRIC TYPE AT LEAST

    1. I was kinda hoping we would get a new protagonist for the anime like the male trainer mabye

  6. Just me r does pichachu look cuter. I like ashes new look but the hat is bugging me it looks weird

  7. Dang……….. Sad to say it buuuut, Im gonna miss poor little Oshawott =[ lol

  8. I don’t know if anybody else knows this but supposely a new trailer appeared durring the movie and it showed a new Pokemon. As for the new series, I’m not really intrested since the ENTIRE series(this imcludes the earlier seasons with Misty and Brock) is mediocre at best.

    1. Not knowing anything about this new Pokemon is killing me. I must know what it is at once, GameFreak! (+.+)-I

  9. Now if only they could make the anime appear in America at the same time.. it would make the game sell more around release

    1. Assuming there are no breaks, the episode in which Alexa debuts will air on the same day that X and Y are released.

  10. Hey anyone notice how Froakie has his hand in his bubble patch kind like a ninja who is about to throw something at a foe? Maybe a bubble bomb =] haha

  11. oh my glob ash’s new clothes is AWESOME!!!!!XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD *Dances around the room Until finally passes out of overjoy* XoX

    1. a trailer for Pokémon X & Y was shown and a Pokémon called Orotto was said to feature, but this is yet to be confirmed

  12. OMG!!!! I want to know who is the Profesor Tierno dont look like a asistante of a profesor

  13. i want to see the new move and tactis on this new serie 😀 because en BW the move change

    1. OMG im sorry but you have to be so dumb to believe this…. its just a bad drawing of one of those talking cars from old school cartoons

      1. I just posted it I didn’t say I believe this is the Pokemon from the look of it you didn’t understand that I posted this to see if anyone saw it and could clear the information and yes by the drawing I could see is not a Pokemon.

  14. fuck please someone help me i bought a 3ds on Febrary 10 for pokemon x and y and my 3ds need a new board 🙁 he dont want to turn on and i dont kknow what i need to do please someone help me 🙁

Try these steps, sorry in advance if they don’t work but u will be surprised how often I fix these haha, 1) Make sure the 3DS has full power / is Fully Charged AND IS TURNED OFF. 2) Hold the power button for roughly 9-10 seconds. 3) The blue light should flash, if it doesn’t stop holding the power switch anyway. The screen should be black ( but noticeably on *slightly less black than if the 3DS was turned off ) 4) Ur 3ds should Power on 🙂 😀 Let me know 🙂

        1. Hmm, well that’s not really much I can suggest. If you’re able to contact support or something. You should have a warranty that covers it. If you’re not in the US though and you bought it whilst over there I’m not sure it still applies. Still, contact Nintendo Support, I’m sure they can help.

          There’s not really anything I can do other than tell you to contact those sadly 🙁

          1. You should be able to contact them HERE make sure you select your country or region from the drop down, and explain the situation as best you can. I’m sure they’ll do their best to help you.

            Also make sure to search around online to see if anyone else has reported the problem, and if there’s a known solution.

  15. I would like to clear up some things on オーロット, or Aulotte, and where it was shown.

    1.The supposed Aulotte was seen by the Japanese twitter user in an XY gameplay commercial before the prescreen of the Genesect movie.

    2.He gives us a somewhat useful description and says: ” looked kinda like Beeheeym but uglier.”

    3.The twitter user has a picture of his DS downloading the shiny Genesect that would be available to those who go to the theaters with their DS in hand.

    at this point I’m holding on updating the post. I might update the post later with this and some other tidbits.

      1. im living at Dominican Republic 🙁 i bought it at United state 🙁 yes it charge but it can turn on

  16. please someone help me i want to cry 🙁 im a pokefan and i bought a 3ds when i saw the firts trailer os pokemon

  17. I love his new look, in fact it is one of my favorite outfits of his. I wonder what starter he will have, and if Team Rocket will return in this series (like always) although, I hope they blast off more. I really hope Ash gets Chespin, he is my favorite out of the starters, but I can see him getting any starter. If he were to get each starter I would imagine it like this: Chespin would be like Oshawott (The funny one), Fennekin would be like Snivy (The cool and slick one), and Froakie would be like Tepig (Has some good power, and will probably receive a back-story.)

  18. Also, they announced the X and Y movie will come out Summer 2014, not only that, but there are two new 3DS XL’s coming out in October. They will be Red or Blue with Xerneas or Yveltal featured on them.

      1. I know your frustration. I wish we had that come to the U.S. too. I wonder if the Eevee 3DS XL will come to the U.S. Probably not, but still.

  19. never seen the Kalos starters look so… aggressive

    Froakie looks ready for battle, Chespin has a take on all comers expression and, Fennekin looks just plain feral
    But i’ve never turned down a pokemon with a battling spirit!

  20. I love the Kalos region because you can see that the game will be more bigger and will have more story

  21. If you see carefully the image of the starters, you can see how Froakie has one hand inside of his cloud, like looking for something to use. I read months ago that his final form would be, Water/Dark type, and look like a thief, with a bigger cloud on his back, looking like a big sack to steal things. Just say that this image seems to corroborate that theory,

    1. I’ve heard theories that it will be a water/fighting ninja. If that’s the case, it could be looking for weapons (kunai, shuriken, smoke bombs, etc.).

    2. If it’s the PokéBeach leaks, WPM’s source mixed up Froakie and Chespin’s final forms’ types and noticed later. WPM already corrected the info, Froakie will evolve Water/Fighting and Chespin into Grass/Dark.

      There are theories that Froakie is based on Jiraiya, a folklorical ninja that uses shapeshifting magic to morph into a giant toad. Looking at Froakie’s stance in this picture, it really resembles a ninja. If the theory is correct, then I guess the Japanese name of Froakie’s final form will be Keraiya.

  22. I remember seeing weird looking car at one of the trailers. I don’t know if it has somthing to do with Aulette.

  23. Gen 6 pokemon are actually debuting in the anime in Japan on the 11th with Alexa…I am keen to know if Ash’s pokedex will recognise them….

  24. I hated Unova in the Anime
    the one thing i was waiting for was the Unova League and they finish it off with 5 episodes and they weren’t even good and he lost like an idiot i hope they step it up in the next anime if they don’t i’ll stop watching

  25. I hope they use some of the elements from BW just better executed. For example the development of the pokemon (the 1 thing the anime has over the pokemon adventures manga). Some pokemon didn’t show much personality outside of the episode it was caught. Boldore and Palpitoad are the best examples. Another good element that was good but not well executed was Ash catching more than just 5 more pokemon. It was a good idea but poorly executed because for the most part because Ash’s team would consist of Pikachu, the 3 starters and scraggy with the last slot filled with either Unfezant, Boldore, Leavanny, Krookadile or Palpitoad. I can understand Pikachu because he’s Ash’s 1st pokemon and i could understand Scraggy because he was the baby and needed to stay at all times to improve his battle skills. But other than those 2 Ash should have switched around the starters with his reserves. Especially when Ash has 2 different pokemon of the same type (snivy and leavanny as well as oshawott and palpitoad). Another good idea was the addition of the battle clubs. After learning that you could battle trainers there and train the way Ash did for his rematch against Lenora i thought we would see more of that but we barely saw any of that. Also it was a good idea to add all of the battle club tournaments. BW had plenty of great ideas in it but weren’t executed that well hopefully they will fix that in the XY anime.

  26. I truly wanted this new season to have better animation, doesn’t seem it will improve much though sadly.. ( -_-)

    1. We can’t really tell too much with just these pictures so it could still be improved a little more. But i do hope that most of the episodes will be animated by Masaaki Iwane, he is hands down the best animation director the show has because most episodes animated by him are always really fluid (he animated the 2nd and 3rd episode of sinnoh league Ash vs Paul.) I wish they could stick with just him as animation director but they don’t. I wonder if its a budget thing. Maybe the more fluid the animation the more it costs?

  27. Water frog dude reaching for his weapon in the bubble cloud, grass chipmunk dude being an evil overlord, and fire fox dude using its mind to destroy.Or water dude stealing, grass dude using his teleknetic powers, and fire dude getting fierce for battle, or water using his bubble cloud which is actually his brain, grass being all like “what up ” and fire being sinister. this tooooooootally means that we have our fighting dark psychic trio.

  28. The pants look kinda strange to me, maybe it’s just the pose and angle. I just really want them to evolve ash’s pokemon. I know there is the factor that having the cute starters stay sell them more but ahhh it would be great to see him have a full evolved team for once during the main story not at the end or past the main events. vov
    And gosh at least a good sign of him winning the league. I don’t think they realize having him winning a league does not mean his goal has been reached and they have to end his story, it’s just a step ‘twords his dream. It’s nice that when he loses they show he grows more but that shouldn’t require him losing so much…vov;

  29. what i want is the ability to nickname the attacks that i can have a talonflame with a nickname of Cpt.falcon with flame charge being nicknamed Falcon Punch

  30. One thing I don’t think is being mentioned is Ash’s hat in the new anime looks a lot like Red’s hate from Fire Red/Leaf Green.

  31. I just hope iris and cilantro don’t return in the anime. They are too annoying.

  32. This one is from vp:

    Through
    my friend’s position at TV Tokyo, he was recently able to learn
    information regarding the Pocket Monsters X and Y Anime via a closed
    press conference that was recently held, around the same time the
    official site updated with the first information regarding Satoshi’s
    redesign and the official logo, and was shown a quick teaser trailer
    around a minute in length as well as learn the central cast list. Here’s
    the information he has shared with me. He informs me that in the coming
    month the trailer he saw is due to air publicly during a July episode
    of the anime, but is unsure of the exact date, and the official site
    will probably update with the cast list following that.

    * The
    trailer had the new series theme playing, which is called BOUNDARY
    BREAKERS, written out in romanji, sung by Rica Matsumoto. He described
    it as very techno sounding, with a synthesized man’s voice regularly
    speaking out English words alongside Matsumoto’s singing. No information
    on the Ending Theme was provided.

    * Rica Matsumoto, Ikue Ōtani,
    Shinichirō Miki, Megumi Hayashibara, and Inuko Inuyama all return as
    main cast members voicing Satoshi, Pikachu, Kojirō, Musashi, and Nyasu
    respectively. Team Rocket are shown wearing new white outfits that are
    more modern in appearance, but seem to be the same Team Rocket as in
    past seasons.

    * Mamoru Miyano is also returning as Dent, but he
    will not be a main cast member. He’s shown briefly in the trailer
    alongside Satoshi, both wearing their BW outfit and seemingly getting
    off a boat, so he most likely will depart from the group at some point
    but will presumably keep in touch.

    *
    Tierno, Toroba, and Sana are joining as main cast members, played by
    Kenichi Suzumura, Shizuka Ishikawa, and Yōko Hikasa. They join up with
    Ash and all of them form a team called “P-1000”, apparently this may be
    based off a new game play multi-player component? Satoshi battles and
    uses their Pokemon as well as his own, with Tierno assisting with
    choreography, Toroba the brains, and Sana the practice partner and
    leader. Apparently they wanted to give each member a part of the show
    and allow Satoshi to grow with the help of others.

    * “Professor
    Sekoia” is a reoccurring cast member voiced by Tomokazu Sugita,
    presumably the new Professor. He’s shown in the trailer as a fairly
    young man in a lab-coat who is shown pointing out the Starters to
    Satoshi and Sana.

    * The new Rival is named “Shin”, voiced by Shu
    Watanabe (I don’t know who this is, but he’s “Kamen Rider OOO”?) in his
    first major anime voice acting role. My friend states that Shu Watanabe
    was present and introduced at the conference, and he talked about how
    he was a fan of the series and was interested in voicing a character,
    thus “Shin” was created with him in mind. Shin is a world traveler
    Trainer who plays a guitar, and Watanabe’s singing voice will be put to
    good use.

    * There’s a lot of CG present; all the Pokeballs
    appear to be CG, one scene shows Harimaron using Roll-Out and going CG,
    and a big aerial fight with CG Spear facing off against CG Yayakoma.

    *
    Satoshi is shown with Pikachu and Yayakoma; Tierno has Harimaron and
    Vanipeti; Toroba has Fokko; and Sana has Keromatsu and Flabébé. Yamchan,
    the Vivillion line, and Shishiko appeared, as well as three Pokemon he
    didn’t recognize and probably are being revealed in July, one appeared
    to be the new rodent, a chunky rat looking creature that bounced on a
    springy tail; one was what looked like a flying saucer and had a little
    smiling head popping out the top; and the third was a smaller Gogoat
    looking creature.

    and a big aerial fight with CG Spear facing off against CG Yayakoma.

    *
    Satoshi is shown with Pikachu and Yayakoma; Tierno has Harimaron and
    Vanipeti; Toroba has Fokko; and Sana has Keromatsu and Flabébé. Yamchan,
    the Vivillion line, and Shishiko appeared, as well as three Pokemon he
    didn’t recognize and probably are being revealed in July, one appeared
    to be the new rodent, a chunky rat looking creature that bounced on a
    springy tail; one was what looked like a flying saucer and had a little
    smiling head popping out the top; and the third was a smaller Gogoat
    looking creature.

  34. I’m so tired of satoshi being the protagonist Why don’t they do the same stuff they do with the manga? they do change characters every now and then to give the series some fresh air. well…

  35. I bet he’s still 10.
    Oh, wait…

    *ahem*
    Excuse me. 10½.

  36. There have been rumors spreading about the supposed Aulotte to be a Fairy-type legendary, which in my opinion is really cool! However, it all depends on the Mewtwo forms, too, because if they are part/pure Fairy, why bother to have Aulotte? Anyways, it would be nice to have a Legendary Fairy-type to take down OP Pokemon like Reshiram/Zekrom, Salamance/Dragonite and more. However, the user claims Aulotte “looked kinds like Beheeym but uglier,” in which case we may see an evolution for Beheeym, so we might expect to get evolutions of previous Pokemon, such as Sableye (hinted in Pokemon-Amie and in the Movie Poster, along with other rumors) which may actually be quite nice– having a 2nd/3rd evolution for older, maybe weaker Pokemon. Thoughts…?

  37. Did anyone notice the XY part? It has some kind of circle pattern, like a dimensions vibe.

    1. Maybe X/Y is based on Genetic Time Traveling to parallel universes to stop the evil team in the game from taking over the world? Hmm…

  38. Trying to come up with an intelligent comment about how I’m actually gonna miss Iris and Cilan (really? REALLY? Yeah, really) if they go but all my brain is providing at the moment is ‘LOL ASH, THAT OUTFIT’.

    But yaaay, the UK broadcasts of the anime have sped up and we’re only like a year behind the initial Japanese airing now, so next October we’re going to kalos! Woohoo! (it sounds depressing to have to wait that long but last weekend was N and Cheren and next weekend is Colress’s debut so I have zilch to complain about right now)
