Super Training is a variety of mini-games which players can participate using a specific Pokemon to boost its base stat.

In a recently released image, Froakie can be seen participating in a soccer related mini-game, currently the only one that has been revealed.

The theory is that six mini-games will be available to represent the six base stats: HP, Attack, Speed, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Defense.

What do you think the soccer mini-game is supposed to boost? Defense?

According to Pokejungle, Super Training can be accessed through PSS or Pokemon Amie. Pokemon Amie is another new Pokemon X and Y feature which allows players to play with, pet, feed, and presumably raise loyalty with their Pokemon.

In addition, Serebii confirms an addendum to Super Training called Core Training. Reportedly, after completing various mini-games in Super Training, players will receive Training Bags.

Training Bags can be used to increase a Pokemon's EVs, or Effort Values.

Now, based on various sources, it appears Super Training and Core Training might be able to increase both base stat and Effort Values.

Base stat are the simple numbers which accompany areas such as Speed or Defense, and increasing a base stat increases that number.

However, Effort Values determine which stats your Pokemon gets upon leveling up, which used to be calculated primarily through Pokemon battles.

For example, defeating a Patrat would give all Pokemon that participated in the battle +1 Effort Value to Attack. The higher the Effort Value, the bigger the base stat increase will be upon leveling up.

Currently, there's a bit of confusion regarding how Super Training and Core Training attempt to increase base stat versus Effort Values, but it appears they can be tracked and monitored through the Effort Meter.

One theory is that while Super Training raises base stat, the Training Bags for Core Training raises Effort Values, which would be quite the system for Pokemon X and Y.
