While there are many tips for playing, guides and infographics and even Shiny-finding methods, some interesting facts about Pokemon X and Y game in terms of creation have been revealed.

Game Freak's Junichi Masuda has shared some interesting information and trivia about the Pokemon X and Y. Nintendo Everything has spotted a blog post on Game Freak's official website, wherein Masuda has given a quick glimpse of Pokemon X and Y as a project grounded on more than just developing another game.

"Since the launch day is the same worldwide, all players across the world can enjoy the game at the same time; sharing the discovery and adventure together," Masuda said in the blog.

Some of the trivia include that it took more than 500 staffers to complete Pokemon X and Y, all of whom had worked on the game for three and a half years. In addition, there's art and progression to the way it was created, since there were a number of considerations in the way that it was made.

*The Pokemon Bank is still delayed for North America and Europe, though the Nintendo eShop is already up and running again. In the meantime, check out these cool gift ideas that are Pokemon X and Y-themed.

For instance, the game runs on more than just the idea of "gotta catch 'em all," as it includes beauty, bonds, and even evolution. This is seen in the way that Pokemon X and Y was even named as a franchise.

Taking cue from the idea of an X and Y on an axis where there is one point of intersection, the game aims to find the common point in one another as players--perhaps in the aim of enjoying the world of Pokemon X and Y in each player's unique way, but enjoying it altogether nevertheless.
