Nintendo has released a brand new gameplay trailer for Pokémon X and Y, which offers a look at some of the game’s new features.

The trailer begins with an overview of Kalos, the game’s new region, before moving on to the new character customization screen where players can choose from several looks for their male/female character. Players will also be able to collect new outfits for their character as they explore the world.

The trailer then shows off the newly added Horde Encounters, these are basically five on one fights that can occur naturally in the wild–luckily some Pokemon have abilities that can hit all enemies. Next up is Sky Battles, which are self-explanatory, it’s basically just two flying types going at it in the air–still looks impressive though.

Pokémon X and Y are set to release worldwide for 3DS on October 12.
