Pokemon X And Y Water Battle Gameplay [PHOTOS]: New Terrains Including Sky Battle Amp Up Excitement For 3DS Release

With Pokemon X and Y being released October 12, new battle gameplay photos have unveiled the water battle terrain in addition to the already introduced sky battle gameplay.
As seen in the photo above, two X and Y water Pokemon, Skrelp and Clauncher, are battling it out on the water surface. From this, we can assume that much like the Flying-Type requirement for sky battles, only water Pokemon can battle in such a manner.

Prior to Pokemon X and Y, gamers would encounter water Pokemon while surfing, and any type of Pokemon can do battle in these random encounters.
Will the battle gameplay look different in such a scenario, or will this no longer occur in Pokemon X and Y during Surfing?
Another interesting thing to look out for is whether underwater battles can occur. So far, the HMs for Pokemon X and Y have not been released to the public, so only time will tell how diverse Pokemon battle gameplay will get for the 3DS release.
In addition to sky battle and water battle, Pokemon X and Y have already showcased other terrains like the forest, grass field, cave, mountainside, and of course, unique terrains like Pokemon Gyms.
With Pokemon X and Y getting a big boost in graphics thanks to 3DS capabilities, hopefully more battle gameplay upgrades like water and sky battles will make its way into players' hearts.
