As he has in new regions, aside from Johto, Ketchum is likely to meet new traveling friends as he sets off to face gym leaders such as Viola, Clemont, Grant, and Korrina, who have been confirmed for the video games.

The "Pokémon X and Y" anime series is set to start in Japan on Oct. 17, five days after the worldwide release of the sixth-generation video games. U.S. fans might see the new season by early February 2014, although that is based on the current number of days that separate the Japanese and U.S. anime airdates.

"Pocket Monsters: The Origin" has been confirmed to air in Japan on Oct. 2, but a U.S. release date is unknown.

The "Pokémon X and Y" video games will be released on Oct. 12, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.
