Original Starter Pokemon Confirmed for ‘X and Y’ [Nintendo Direct]

Pokemon X and Y will feature a slightly different take on the story. Instead of receiving your first Pokemon from the resident professor, you’ll get one from your friend instead. You’ll have a choice between Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie. Sometime later in the game though, you’ll still meet up with a Poke-professor, who will give you your choice of the three original starter Pokemon: Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander.

Additionally, this morning’s Nintendo Direct revealed that these three Pokemon’s final evolutions will have “Mega Evolutions.” Mega Evolutions will be activated in some way using a black bracelet called a “Mega Ring.” Check out a few screenshots below.
