The two latest “Pokemon” video games came out on Oct. 12, 2013. Both titles were previously plagued by hackers using programs to intercept signals when trading and battling others online. These methods provide a competitive advantage for the exploiters. However, Nintendo appears to have patched up holes.

“Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y” introduced several new elements to the series such as the fairy type and mega evolution transformations. Dozens of new monsters were also added to the roster. The two titles should provide the most balance in the series in terms of balance of competitive play.
