Seventeen years ago Satoshi Tajiri created a franchise that would become one of the most recognized and beloved in history. Throughout the years Pokémon has found its way onto clothing, video games, TV shows and morphed into a enjoyable social, strategic experience with expansive regions to discover and a multitude of Pokémon to catch.

Now, your knowledge of Pokémon is the perfect time to delve into Pokémon X and Y and fill it with all the info about the game you know; from tips, tricks, character bios, everything your heart desires. Why? Because it can win you some amazing prizes and you can become a key part of the  Pokémon community.
