These blue and gold Pokemon X & Y 3DS XLs are beautiful

Bask in the glory of Xerneas and Yveltal

We all know it was coming. A new piece of Pokemon-themed hardware always accompanies a new game release, and now, we have pictures of the new blue and gold 3DS XLs -- and they're looking pretty damn sweet. They're only confirmed for Japan currently, but odds are at least one of them is going to make it overseas.

While the gold XL looks great adorn with the deer-like legendary Xerneas and the three starters (the latter of which are pretty rare for Pokemon portable designs), I think I have to go with the one that prominently displays my boy Yveltal, given the fact that I want to capture him and experience Y first. I actually collect old Pokemon hardware, so at least one of these is in my future.
