Plus, watch the new three-minute trailer.

Nintendo has announced two Pokemon X and Y special edition 3DS XLs for Japan.

The “Xerneas and Yveltal Blue” (pictured) and “Premium Gold” 3DS XL models will cost 22,800 yen each. They’ll come packaged with a download copy of the game (there are separate packs for Pokemon X and Y – the Pokemon X pack comes with Pokemon X, for example), 4 gigabyte SDHC memory card, and other standard inclusions like a stylus and six AR cards.

The “Premium Gold” model is a Pokemon Center exclusive.

Both models will be released alongside the games on October 12 in Japan. Pre-orders begin on August 10. See images of each model at the gallery.

Additionally, a new three-minute trailer was uploaded to the game’s official Japanese website. Watch below for battle cries, player search, and more.

          Whoa! Even in full color I dont know what Im looking at! Now I dont feel so bad.

      • Skeletor

        I love the downvotes LMAO.

        “How dare he not be a full fledged member of the church of pokemon! Burn the heretic”

  • LightGenx

    The new battle theme is sounding good.

  • ギャビン

    MAN, I might have to get this.

  • MrKappa

    An overall boring design but it matters not as NA will not be getting it. NoA still have gotten off their lazy asses and released standard white or black XLs.

  • xMCXx

    Would be cool if we also get some kind of bundle.

  • Locksus

    Holy hell, the trailer looked absolutely amazing. I haven’t played a Pokemon game since Crystal, but this looks so good.

  • OverlordZetta

    Blegh! I was all set to import this until I saw the “download only” part. No thank you, Nintendo.

  • EspadaKiller

    Just amazing, the new trailer is awesome. Can’t wait for this new Pokemon game!

  • Gilgamesh2025

    The new Pokémon games are going to be awesome! :D
    But why doesn’t Nintendo make a Pokémon console game? I’d totally love to play a “proper” Pokémon game on Wii or Wii U!

  • LordKaiser

    Looks awesome and it’s not because it’s blue but this and the 1 that came bundled with Fire Emblem are the best looking.

    I don’t like portables but I get tempted from time to time and Nintendo is hitting me hard.
