New Pokemon "Fairy" type confirmed!
Pokémon X & Y — 11 June, 2013
The Nintendo Direct presentation at the E3 games conference has just confirmed there will be a new elementary Pokemon type introduced in Pokemon X&Y - the Fairy type! This has been rumoured for a long while now, ever since Sylveon was revealed.
Sylveon is Fairy type, but also Jigglypuff, Gardevoir, and Marill have been confirmed to now be part-Fairy type (Normal/Fairy, Psychic/Fairy and Water/Fairy respectively). More Fairy Pokemon may be confirmed later.
Two new Pokemon have been revealed - Vivillon, based on a butterfly, and Noivern, based on a dragon (or more precisely a
wyvern). Three new moves are in the trailer - one called Boomburst as used by Noivern, a Fairy-type move called Moonblast as used by Sylveon, and another Fairy-type move called Fairy Wind as used by Gardevoir.

The release date is also confirmed to be October 12th, 2013, worldwide. Watch the new official Pokemon X&Y gameplay trailer below.
Our Pokemon X&Y page will be updated shortly with these and more details!
