Now that Pokémon X & Y are officially released in Japan, Korea, Australia, and now parts of Europe, what better way to kick off the release than the first part of Marriland.com's Pokémon X & Y Walkthrough!
This walkthrough is written to help you get through the game as well as to show you much of what the game has to offer. Right now, it covers all the way up to the very first Gym Badge, complete with screenshots and strategies to earn your first Gym Badge.
As the games have only officially been released for a few hours, it is nowhere near complete. I will be adding to the walkthrough as often as I can over the next few weeks until it is complete. Just please remember that it takes a considerable amount of time to write something so massive, so if you are stuck in the game and the walkthrough does not yet cover that part, you should ask about it on the Pokémon X & Y section of the Marriland Forums.
Will I be doing video coverage for Pokémon X & Y? Yes, but not until the games are released worldwide, meaning Part 1 should be up shortly after midnight. I will be providing written coverage until then, but will switch almost exclusively to video coverage once the US version is released (until it is complete, when I will have enough footage for more screenshots, written parts, etc.).
Will I be doing Pokémon Reviews for the walkthrough? Yes, I plan to, but being an entirely new generation with at least 450 Pokémon able to be found in the wild, plus very little in the way of data for these Pokémon available (what moves they learn, TMs, etc.), Pokémon Reviews will not be added for at least a month or two. They won't be added until both the walkthrough and the Pokédex are complete, and even then, with 450 Pokémon available, it will take months writing them all out. Instead, if there's a Pokémon that's good to use, I'll mention it in the game, but otherwise, it will have to wait.
That being said, there's also a very rough preliminary form of the Pokémon X & Y Pokédex available. Most all stats for new Pokémon are estimated, moves and abilities aren't yet in, and sprites aren't available, but it's a start and this information will be added over time. If you would like to contribute your information, you can do so on this thread on the Marriland Forums.
