It is mentionable that Pokemon X and Y deviate from the series’ classic formula when it comes to its story: rather than accept Pokemon from a professor and be given marching orders at the very start of the game, players will instead get all they need right off the bat from their new group of friends.
But during a hands-on demo of Pokemon Y, I was able to play through from the beginning up to the first gym. And Players will start off with the classic first choice — “Are you a boy or a girl?” — and customize how their character looks.
However, from there, it’s off on your very first Pokemon adventure, but this time it is not to a professor’s lab. But instead, a new trainers will head out to meet up with four other neighborhood kids who are also setting out to do the same. [ polygon.com ]
