Today, the official Pokemon YouTube account revealed a new trailer for the games, Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. This is the 5th official trailer for the games, and they reveal a new professor, new Pokemon, and of course, new enemies.

The New Professor – Augustine Sycamore

The new Pokemon professor is named Augustine Sycamore. Just like with most Pokemon games, Professor Augustine Sycamore hands you and your friends a pokedex and helps you along your journey to become a Pokemon Master.

The New Enemy – Team Flare

You can’t play a Pokemon game like Pokemon X or Pokemon Y without running into an enemy at some point of the game. Pokemon X and Pokemon Y introduces Team Flare. They’re going to appear in various cites of the Kalos region, so be prepared.

New Pokemon

More new Pokemon were revealed during the trailer. The first Pokemon is Inkay (the one that looks like a squid on land), a Dark and Psychic-type Pokemon that appears in both Pokemon X and Pokemon Y games. Next up is Pangoro, a mean-looking Pokemon that resembles a bear, and is the evolved form of Pancham. The twig in his mouth should have given it away. Next in line is Malamar, a Dark and Psychic-type Pokemon, and the evolved form of Inkay.

Lastly, Swirlix battles with Skrelp and Spritzee battles with Clauncher. Both Skrelp and Clauncher were revealed last month, therefore, only Swirlix and Spritzee are to be considered as new reveals. Swirlix is a fairy-type Pokemon that looks like a combination of Jigglypuff and Yu-Gi-Oh’s Kuriboh. As for Spritzee, it’s the pink-colored Pokemon that resembles a bird, however, it is a fairy-type Pokemon and can only be caught in Pokemon Y.
