There's Another New Pokémon 3DS XL, You Know

Nintendo isn't releasing one new jumbo-sized Pokémon XY 3DS handhelds for Japan, but two new 3D XL units.

Previously, Kotaku posted the blue and black one that features two new legendary creatures—Xerneas and Yveltal. Here's the other! It's in "Premium Gold" and only available at Pokémon Center retailers in Japan this October when the game is released.

The New Pokémon Trainer’s Legs Are Too Damn Long

This is the new male Pokémon trainer for the upcoming Pokémon X/Y. His legs are long—too long. Don't believe me?

Here is a comparison (via Twitter user Twillcoco) of Pokémon X/Y's male trainer and the male trainers from Pokémon Black & White and its sequel.

The trainer's legs do look kinda long in the game, too!

Twillcoco even has a cute little cartoon with the new trainer: He's riding either a bullet train or an airplane, and apologizing for accidentally kicking the seat in front of him. The little sign says, "No matter how long your legs are, don't kick the seat in front of you. Mind your manners." Words to live by.

Pokémon X/Y Sure Looks Like France

As with past Pokémon games, the latest one, Pokémon X/Y, takes its visual cue from real world geography.

For example, in the last big Pokémon titles, Pokémon Black/White, the in-world map was apparently modeled after New York City. This time, the game appears to be modeled after France—though, as one Kotaku reader points out, the game's official site says the region is designed after a star.

Have a look at how the entirely new region, dubbed "Kalos", and its central hub Lumiose City stack up against France and Paris:

Though, this being Pokémon, it's certainly not an exact copy by any stretch. But still, what's up with Pokémon Spain? Pokémon Italy? And Pokémon Germany? They're really brown.

And in case you missed it, check out the game's latest trailer.
