Generation VI currently includes X and Y. Setting: The Kalos region is based on France. The theme seems to be life. Story: Team Flare is greedy like Team Rocket, but go to much greater lengths to make sure they can have everything to themselves... Pokemon: Gen VI introduced only 69 Mons, though they generally have good designs and stats. Much attention is focused on Mega Evolutions, which allows several past Mons to temporarily gain a Super Mode with stats akin to legendaries. Verdict: Though some may feel that the Gen didn't live up to Gen V's standards, Gen VI was still a wonderful addition to the series. It has a Video Game 3D Leap that makes the region truly stand out among others. The regional dex alone contains almost 2/3 of all Pokémon at this point. Several new additions to the mechanics appeared (ex. Pokémon-Amie, Friend Safari). The dominant complaint about Gen VI was a lack of difficulty brought on by a buffed-up Exp. Share, potential side-effects of Pokémon-Amie, and EV Super Training. The Exp. Share and Super Training at least get a pass as simply taking existing concepts and making them more convenient, but it is admittedly quite cheap to have high-level Affection Mons from Amie survives hits they shouldn't, shrug off status conditions, and get critical hits more often. Still, Gen VI is another groundbreaker for the series and the #1 reason I'm getting a 3DS. 9/10 That's it for my Pokémon reviews for now.
