This page is loooong...
Consider grouping related content into additional subpages to ease readability.

The first main-series Pokémon games in full 3D, Pokémon X and Y are set in the faraway region of Kalos and feature 72 new Pokémon, a huge regional Pokédex separated into three sections, and brand new features such as Mega Evolution and the Fairy type.

Also, fashion and cafés. It is the equivalent of France, after all.

Prerelease Info

Unreleased Hidden Abilities

In the Generation VI games, it is possible to find Pokémon with special "hidden Abilities". However, some Pokémon couldn't be encountered with hidden Abilities through any legitimate means, rendering the following hidden Abilities unused in normal gameplay.

Pokémon Regular Ability Hidden Ability
Raikou Pressure Volt Absorb
Entei Pressure Flash Fire
Suicune Pressure Water Absorb
Heatran Flash Fire Flame Body

In the Generation VII games, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune's Hidden Abilities were all changed to Inner Focus, and can be obtained legitimately by importing a Raikou, Entei, or Suicune from Virtual Console Gold, Silver, or Crystal to those games through Pokémon Bank.

Unobtainable Shiny Pokémon

For the sake of consistency, every Pokémon in every Pokémon game is given a Shiny variant. Most Shiny Pokémon have been obtainable through random chance encounters or event distributions, including most Legendary Pokémon. However, a few Pokémon cannot be obtained in this form without hacking, and as a consequence, normal players would never be able to see their Shiny coloration.

PokemonXYShinyZygarde.png

  • Zygarde – This Legendary Pokémon is encountered via a fixed in-game battle. However, its probability of being Shiny is locked at 0. Shiny Zygarde would later be obtainable in Generation VII games as part of an event distribution, and through Dynamax Adventures in Sword & Shield.

PokemonXYORASShinyHoopa.png Pokemon-X-Y-ShinyVolcanion.png

  • Hoopa, Volcanion – These Mythical Pokémon were only obtainable through special distributions via Mystery Gift. Pokémon obtained from Mystery Gift cannot be Shiny unless distributed as such, and no distributions of these Pokemon in their Shiny forms were ever planned.

Unused Fixed Encounters

2 unused static encounter slots exist corresponding to Scatterbug and Abomasnow, neither of which are used at any point in the game. Both encounters are shiny locked, and where they may have been placed remains a mystery, although it is likely Abomasnow would've been found on Route 17 (Mamoswine Road).

Event Super Training Missions

Hmmm...
To do:
Other exclusive rewards, possibly different between missions.

Several Super Training missions are hidden in the games' files and meant to be unlocked via Wondercards. All of these missions deal with battling against balloons of Mega Evolutions not seen in the Secret Super Training missions.

Fearsome! Twin Tales of Jutting Jaws! Mega Mawile
Danger Zipped Up Tight! Mega Banette
Stuck between the Strong and the Strong! Mega Scizor
Dazzling! A Dizzying Dance of Spoons! Mega Alakazam
What an Upstart! Magikarp Is Moving Up! Mega Gyarados
Watch It! Multiple Mega Evolutions! Mewtwo, Mega Mewtwo X, Mega Mewtwo Y

Completing these missions may reward the player with an Up-Grade or a Dubious Disc, both of which are not rewarded by any normal Super Training mission. Of note is that these missions give no EVs to the Pokémon, much like Secret Super Training missions, but completion sets bitflags 0-5 in byte 0x3A for the Pokémon.

Unused Items

Leftover Items

Leftover Key Items

As with every game since Generation IV, every single Key Item from previous games, used and unused, remains in X and Y, completely unused. Everything from the Seal Bag to the Lock Capsule still exists, but with its uses removed.

Wonder Launcher Items

The items that went unused outside of Wonder Launcher multiplayer battles in Generation V are now completely unused, as the Wonder Launcher mode does not exist in X and Y.

Poké Balls

The Apricorn Balls and Sport Balls from HeartGold and SoulSilver and the Park Balls from all Generation IV games remain nonfunctional, but the Dream Ball from Black and White and the Safari Ball from previous games can be hacked into the Bag and function properly.

Apricorns

The Apricorns themselves from HeartGold and SoulSilver can be hacked into the bag, but have no use.

Changed Item Descriptions

Hmmm...
To do:
Check whether any of the other localizations have description changes like this.

Many of the leftover unused items had their descriptions retranslated in the English localization of the game.

New Unused Items

Fairy Gem

PKMNXY-FairyGem.png Fairy Gem フェアリージュエル A gem with an essence of the fey. When held, it strengthens the power of a Fairy-type move one time. フェアリーの タイプの ジュエル。 もたせると いちどだけ フェアリーの わざの いりょくが つよまる。 フェアリーの タイプの ジュエル。 持たせると 1度だけ フェアリーの 技の 威力が 強まる。 Increases the power of the first Fairy-type move the holder uses by 30%. Consumed after use.

Along with the other gems, which are unavailable (aside from the Normal Gem), a new gem was added for the new Fairy type, which is just as unavailable as the other gems.

A Key Item found at 0x02BA. Its intended use is unknown.

Travel Trunk

Icon Name (EN) Name (JP) Description (EN) Description (JP, Kana) Description (JP, Kanji) Effect
PKMNXY-TravelTrunkGold.pngPKMNXY-TravelTrunkSilver.png Travel Trunk いしょうトランク A light and yet incredibly efficient trunk, which can contain every last piece of clothing that can be bought. どんな ファッションアイテムでも つめこんでおける しゅうのうりょく ばつぐんの かるい トランク。 どんな ファッションアイテムでも 詰めこんでおける 収納力 抜群の 軽い トランク。 Opens the interface for changing the player's clothes when used.

The Key Items found at 0x02C2 and 0x02C3 are two variants of the same item, apparently for the male and female player character, respectively. Using the item leads to the screen where you can change your character's clothes. This suggests that you could change your character's clothes at any time by using this item, but the game was changed to incorporate dressing rooms into Pokémon Centers...which makes a lot more sense, actually.

The Travel Trunk would finally be implemented as the "Clothing Trunk" in Pokémon Let's Go!, not as a key item, but as a section in the bag.

While the player only uses the Mega Ring, Korrina's Mega Glove and Diantha's Mega Charm exist as Key Items at 0x02CC and 0x02CD, respectively. Their bag icons were either removed or not implemented, so the game uses a question mark as a placeholder icon.

Eternal Flower Floette and Light of Ruin

Hmmm...
To do:
Please rip the shiny coloration instead of the screenshot. This might need some reordering.

AZ's Floette, known as the Eternal Flower Floette, is briefly seen in a cutscene during the ending of X and Y, but is not obtainable by any normal means, nor has it been distributed in any event. Despite apparently existing only for a cutscene, there were clearly initial plans for it to be a special form of Floette to be obtained by the player in some way. This would most likely be through events.

Unlike normal Floette, Eternal Flower Floette cannot evolve into its next stage. It is also in the Undiscovered egg group, making it unable to be bred. This is akin to the Spiky-Eared Pichu in HeartGold and SoulSilver, which couldn't evolve into Pikachu.

It has higher stats than a normal Floette (with its BST only one point lower than its evolution, Florges), its own unique cry, and has a unique signature move, Light of Ruin.

Eternal Floette's signature move has the highest base power out of all Fairy-type attacks, and is the strongest Fairy-type move in the game.

This also damages the user quite a lot.

Unused Evolution Parameters

Eevee's evolution method into Sylveon has an extra parameter to signify which Type of move it needs to have to evolve, and it works with any Type, but only Fairy Type is used under normal conditions.

Thousand Arrows and Thousand Waves

Hmmm...
To do:
Better screenshot of move details in-game, GIF of move.

Thousand Arrows and Thousand Waves are moves unobtainable in Generation VI, confirmed in Generation VII to have been intended for Zygarde. They are physical Ground-type moves with 90 power, 100% accuracy, and 10 PP.

Both moves have extra effects. Thousand Arrows hits Flying or Levitating Pokémon and knocks them to the ground (similar to Gravity), while Thousand Waves prevents affected Pokémon from switching out or fleeing.

These mockups are comprised of separate graphic elements for an early title screen layout. The graphics fit a resolution of 800x480 pixels, which is exactly double the native resolution of the 3DS. The final title screens use a different font for "Push Start Button". The "TM" symbol is also in a fixed position, rather than correlating to the "X" or "Y" logo.

Texture Oddity

Torterra's Shiny eye texture has what appears to be a work-in-progress eye that is missing from the non-shiny eye texture.

Unused Audio

bgm_xy_test Themes

There are 7 versions of the same song, all named bgm_xy_test1 through bgm_xy_test7. They're all the same song, "Friends Theme - A New Meeting", although the waveforms of 1-3 are slightly different from 4-7. These songs may have been used for testing various locations of overworld themes before they were implemented.

bgm_xy_vs_secret_01

As with the Generation V games, a remix of the "Battle! VS Champion" theme from Red and Blue is included for use in the finals of the Pokémon Video Game World Championships tournament. This is a different remix from the Generation V games, though the intro remains the same. There is no way to hear this song through normal gameplay, as it is locked out of the normal multiplayer battle music. Oddly, in the Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire: Super Music Collection soundtrack, the theme is titled Victory! (World Champion), a naming scheme typically reserved for victory themes.

me_xy_test Themes

There are three files, me_xy_test1 through me_xy_test3, which are all just copies of the Pokémon Center's healing machine sound effect. This could have been used for testing player-related sound effects.

Unused Terrains

In a/1/4/6 there are two unused battle backgrounds that indicate that there might have been Water and Ice Terrains originally. They use the Wi-Fi battle background as a placeholder.

Their models are found in "128.bin" & "129.bin". Their internal names are "fwaza_aqua" and "fwaza_ice", matching the naming pattern of the other terrains seen in-game ("fwaza_grass", "fwaza_mist" and "fwaza_eleki").

Sound Debug Logs

Hmmm...
To do:
Get a dump of these file's contents.

Two files named out.txt and out2.txt can be found in a folder called sounddebug. Each file contains comma-separated number values.

Unused Text

A wild Wonder Card appears!

This placeholder text is used for distribution Wonder Cards that don't have an event title attached to them. As all distribution Wonder Cards have an event title, this title goes unseen.

Debugging Files

Hmmm...
To do:
There are probably more files; more analysis is needed.

There are a handful of debugging-related files in the RomFS. Their functions are currently unknown.

Regional Differences

Title Screen

As usual, PUSH START BUTTON was changed to PRESS START in the English releases.

Birthday Music

BZZZRRRRRRTTTT
This page or section needs more videos.
There's a whole lotta words or pictures here, but not enough videos. Please fix this.
Specifically: Audio rips could also work

In the Japanese version, a cover of "Happy Birthday to You" plays during the player's first visit to a Pokémon Center on their birthday; on later visits, it is replaced with a music box version of the Pokémon Center theme. Because this song was still under (legally dubious) copyright internationally at the time, this was removed from international versions, and only the latter theme is heard.

Revisional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
Add more reliable sources.

Version 1.1

This patch was released on October 12, 2013.

  • When saving on the North and South Boulevards of Lumiose City, the game could freeze, forcing the player to reboot the 3DS, which corrupts the save file. The fix patches the bug and restores save files to an usable state.
  • The filtering system of the GTS no longer crashes after using certain filters and confirming a trade.

Version 1.2

This patch was released on December 12, 2013. Starting in this update, each subsequent update is required to go online.

  • Pokémon that evolve by trade now learn new moves after evolving if received through Wonder Trade.
  • All Trainer PR Video captions are now unlocked even after fulfilling the requirements.
  • Encryption was added to online functionality. Thus, the Battle Analyzer and Instacheck tools are rendered useless.

Version 1.3

This patch was released on October 28, 2014.

  • When the first Pokémon is sent out in a battle, the standard Poké Ball effect is no longer used for all types of Poké Balls.
  • Vivillon's icon in the Friend Safari menu now appears for every type of pattern.

Version 1.4

This patch was released on April 2, 2015, alongside the version 1.3 patch for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Both patches fix the bugs with music related to usage of the Poké Radar.

Version 1.5

Hmmm...
To do:
Document the so-far-unknown changes.

This patch was released on April 22, 2015, alongside the version 1.4 patch for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
