HERE is today's X/Y-centric Nintendo Direct for those of you who couldn't watch it live.
- Pokémon Bank: Online service + 3DS app to store up to 3,000 different individual pokémon. Annual fee required, though we don't know how much it will cost. ~Edit: More official info on the Pokémon Bank.
- Poké Transporter: 3DS to transfer pokémon from Pokémon White/Black and White 2/Black 2 to Pokémon X/Y. Requires Pokémon Bank account (which, in turn, requires an annual fee).
- Dual starter system: Your first Kalos starter (Chespin, Fennekin or Froakie) is given to you by one of your friends. The second starter is given to you shortly afterwards by the professor: Kanto's Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle.
- Mega Charizard, Mega Blastoise and Mega Venusaur confirmed.
