Best of 2013: #8 - Pokemon X & Y

Best of 2013: #8 - Pokemon X & Y

Pokemon has always been a fun series of games to play, but it's hard to deny that some of the experience had started to feel stale. By the time Pokemon Black & White 2 had hit, it felt like Game Freak had exhausted everything the series could offer. Then Pokemon X & Y hit the 3DS and rejuvenated faith in the storied franchise. Pokemon has never looked better, offering a total visual facelift, refining classic ideas to fit a newer audience, and taking advantage of the 3DS hardware to deliver the new standard for Pokemon games. Catching 'em all has never been this much fun.

Pokemon Bank giving away free Celebi

Pokemon Bank seems like a relatively cheap way to get your Pokemon across state lines, but Nintendo will be sweetening the pot in an effort to get users on-board.

Pokemon Bank video shows off Poke Transporter in action

Pokemon Bank video shows off Poke Transporter in action

We've already written a lot of words on how Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter work. Coming December 27 to the Nintendo eShop, the subscription service will let you store thousands of Pokemon in the cloud--including legacy critters from the Pokemon Black & White games. A free 30 day trial will be available until January 31, after which a $5 annual subscription will be required.

Of course, maybe that's a bit too much information to digest all at once. Or maybe you require your news to be delivered with really happy music in the background. Either way, Nintendo released a new video showing off how the upcoming service works, and it's a great way to see some older Legendary Pokemon appear in X&Y's new 3D engine.

As a series built entirely around finding and capturing rare creatures, Pokemon is the perfect avenue for hidden secrets and surprises.

A little digging into Pokemon X and Y seems to have uncovered some Pokemon that aren't otherwise accessible, likely to be given out during special events.
