Other than a possible Ruby and Sapphire remake, Pokémon X and Y might be hinting at another new Pokemon region within the sixth generation.
Possible New Pokemon Region in the Sixth Generation?
In episode 58 of the podcast, I talked about Pokémon X and Y hinting at a possible Ruby and Sapphire remake. There are other hints and rumors that have been circulating that there might be an undiscovered, new Pokemon region that will be revealed to us “in due time”. There are a few reasons for these rumors:
- So far, the sixth generation has only 69 new Pokémon, all previous generations have had at least 100
- There are visible areas throughout the Kalos Region that you are not able to traverse, like the locked doors to the Kalos Power Plant on Route 13 (Lumiose Badlands)
- A backpacker hints at a region we’ve never seen before and we will see it “in due time”
- Page 384 of Pokemon X & Pokemon Y: The Official Kalos Region Guidebook: The Official Pokemon Strategy Guide says that some Berries are only available from other regions, but according to FAQs about Pokemon Bank on the official Pokemon website, you are not able to transfer Pokémon holding items
With the option of distributing a patch via the Nintendo eShop, I feel that there will be either downloadable content in the near future that will open up more areas in the Pokémon X and Y games or possibly a new game (Z version?) or a remake of a previous region.
Nintendo releases patch for Lumiose City glitch and GTS bug in Pokémon X and Y
Since the release of Pokémon X and Y around the world, a glitch was found when you save in the outskirts of Lumiose City. The glitch was affecting both digital and physical copies of Pokémon X and Y. I talked about this in episode 58 of the podcast. A lot of people around the Internet reported this glitch, and now Nintendo released a patch on the Nintendo eShop. There are separate patches, one for Pokémon X and one for Pokémon Y – both are free and take up 229 blocks each. The patch not only fixes the horrible Lumiose City save glitch, but also a minor bug found in the GTS where an error message was shown if you used a filter for results. Either way, this gives me hope that maybe future Pokémon content will be distributed via Wi-Fi.
