It is Pokemon X and Y madness at the moment, as developers Game Freak are just moments away from revealing even more information for the highly anticipated game, at the Pokemon X and Y roundtable live event at E3. Unfortunately, it looks like there is no live video stream of the event, but we do have confirmation of the next best thing for you.
If you tuned into Nintendo’s first E3 Direct broadcasts, you would have already seen a whole host of new Pokemon X and Y information already being revealed. First, we can confirm that there will be sky battles in X and Y! Also, Nintendo and Game Freak have finally confirmed that Sylveon will be a fairy-type and that the type will be super effective against any dragon type Pokemon.
We have been waiting months to hear what Sylveon’s type will be, although many of you had expected fairy type from the very start. Also confirmed is two brand new Pokemon to be joining the X and Y Pokedex. These are Vivillon, which is a new Bug/Flying PokÃ©mon and Noivern, a bat like dragon and flying type Pokemon which will come with an ability known as boomburst.
Tomorrow is a big day for PokÃ©mon X and PokÃ©mon Y news! We’re live-tweeting the Nintendo Developer Roundtable. Who’s joining us? #PokemonXY

Back to the main point though – the Pokemon X and Y roundtable event is due to start within the hour, and we now have confirmation that official updates will come via the Pokemon Twitter channel. They will be live-tweeting the event, meaning that every single tidbit of information will be posted on that account, so you definitely want to follow since there’s no live video stream.
The event is officially due to start at 6PM Pacific Time, so that’s 9PM Eastern Time and the early morning for those planning to stay up in the UK. We have lots more information to give you, but let’s enjoy the live event first. Tell us below, what information you want to hear after the massive update taking place earlier already.
Are you following the official Pokemon channel for updates, or somewhere else? What new details have you found out about the game?
