Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are set to hit Nintendo 3DS on October 12, bringing with 'em a bunch of updates to the classic formula. After you and your group of friends—pictured below the video—embark on your individual journeys, you'll eventually run into your first Gym Leader, Viola. See some footage of her webbed-up gym and more below.
Your friends include the energetic Shauna, who embarks to see her own dream to fruition; the dancer Tierno, a strong and kind boy who is light on his feet, and is easily distracted as he attempts to work the moves of battling Pokémon into his dances; and the studious and competitive Trevor, who wants to be the first of the group to fill out his Pokédex.
There's also a character that differs depending on whether you're playing as a boy or a girl. Serena or Calem, both pictured in the screens below, lives next door in the starting area of Vaniville Town, and shares your character's dream of becoming a powerful Pokémon trainer.
