Puddizzle is the one playing and talking. I'll be in the background commenting if need-be. Don't mistake him for me. :p

Update (11:30 AM) - We will have a direct feed stream up later today. | Going to bed for now, been up for almost 24 hours. Will continue again later in the day!

Sorry for getting started so late! Nothing but technical issues. Unfortunately I have to use a webcam for the feed. This afternoon, Puddizzle will be doing a stream with his special 3DS that hooks up directly to the computer. You'll have crystal clear video and audio then. But for now this should do.

Hit the play button below to start the live stream.

Also feel free to discuss this story in this forum thread and/or in the chat room below.

Update: Having technical difficulties. -_-

My copies of X and Y arrived yesterday and I've been dying to play them. I have one last film class at Disney's studios in a bit and then I'm heading home around 11:00 PM to begin streaming my play-through (California time). Keep your eyes peeled here if you want to watch (or hide from here if you don't).

We'll have a chat room and forum thread up so those of you who want to participate can do so. The games will be released in other countries around when I start, so I figured I would just start it now since a bunch of fans will have them. I actually have done everything I can to avoid the leaks these past two weeks, so it's totally understandable if you don't want to watch or visit the site over the next couple of days (unfortunately as a fan site I have to start covering the games now, but were I not a Pokemon webmaster, I would definitely be avoiding the Internet like a plague).

Also, I've never done a live stream before so it will definitely be an experiment!

Our Facebook page and my Twitter account will remain spoiler-free.

Our coverage of Pokemon X and Y will begin when we see that the game has been released to a good chunk of people. We received our copy yesterday but don't want to spoil those who have not been following the leaks (I've managed to avoid almost all leaks myself!)

CoroCoro has officially revealed Mega Tyranitar, Mega Aggron, Mega Gengar, and Mega Kangaskhan. Mega Tyranitar is exclusive to X while Mega Aggron is exclusive to Y. Mega Tyranitar's ability is Sand Stream, Mega Aggron's is Filter, Mega Gengar's is Shadow Tag, and Mega Kangaskhan's is Parental Bond (as reported in August). Each Mega Pokemon retains their original type combination except for Mega Aggron, which becomes pure Steel-type.

Update: The starter Pokemon's final evolutions were also officially revealed. Going off the leaks you can find everywhere, including on our forums, their English names are Chesnaught (Grass/Fighting), Delphox (Fire/Psychic), and Greninja (Water/Dark).

Our coverage of Pokemon X and Y will begin when we see that the game has been released to a good chunk of people. We received our copy yesterday but don't want to spoil those who have not been following the leaks (I've managed to avoid almost all leaks myself!)

CoroCoro magazine has revealed four Pokemon-EX cards from X Collection and Y Collection: Xerneas-EX, Yveltal-EX, Venusaur-EX, and Blastoise-EX. As with EX Battle Boost, even though Venusaur and Blastoise are evolved Pokemon, they are still printed as Basic Pokemon. This is probably to make it easier to Mega Evolve them, which the magazine hints at with the arrows and question marks next to the two. Translations are below.

We have decided to use "Y" to indicate the Fairy-type Energy symbol. Since Fairy-type was introduced in X and Y. :p

Xerneas-EX, Yveltal-EX, Venusaur-EX, and Blastoise-EX from XY Collections

Xerneas-EX - Fairy - HP170
Basic Pokemon-EX

[Y][C][C] Breakthrough: 60 damage. Does 30 damage to one of your opponent's Benched Pokemon.
[Y][Y][C][C] Blast X: 140 damage. During your next turn, this Pokemon can't use Blast X.

When Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Metal (x2)
Resistance: Darkness (-20)
Retreat: 2


Yveltal-EX - Darkness - HP170
Basic Pokemon-EX

[D][C] Evil Ball: 20+ damage. Does 20 more damage for each Energy attached to this Pokemon and the Defending Pokemon.
[D][C][C] Cyclone Y: 90 damage. Choose an Energy card attached to this Pokemon and attach it to one of your Benched Pokemon.

When Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Lightning (x2)
Resistance: Fighting (-20)
Retreat: 2


Venusaur-EX - Grass - HP180
Basic Pokemon-EX

[G][C][C] Poison Powder: 60 damage. The Defending Pokemon is now Poisoned.
[G][G][C][C] Jungle Hammer: 90 damage. Heal 30 damage from this Pokemon.

When Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Fire (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 4


Blastoise-EX - Water - HP180
Basic Pokemon-EX

[C][C] Rapid Spin: 30 damage. Switch this Pokemon with one of your Benched Pokemon. Then, your opponent switches the Defending Pokemon with 1 of his or her Benched Pokemon.
[W][W][W] Splash Bomb: 120 damage. Flip a coin. If tails, this Pokemon does 30 damage to itself.

When Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Grass (x2)

Update (Thursday, 9:30 AM) - Pokemon has revealed that Peroriimu's English name is Slurpuff and Furefuwan's is Aromatisse. Slurpuff's Ability is Sweet Veil. It has an unbelievable sense of smell - a hundred million times more sensitive than that of humans. With its highly attuned senses, it can distinguish the faintest of odors. Some work to assist pastry chefs. It is 2'07" tall and weighs 11 pounds. Aromatisse has Healer and is the Fragrance Pokemon. It can give off a variety of different smells, from a pleasant fragrance to an odor so repugnant to its opponent that it can turn a battle in its favor. It is 2'07" tall and weighs 34.2 pounds.

Girl's magazine Ciao has revealed two new evolutions: Peroriimu, the evolution of Swirlix known as the Whip Cream Pokemon, and Furefuwan, the evolution of Spritzee known as the Perfume Pokemon. Both Pokemon are pure Fairy-types like their pre-evolutions.
