* Although [[Game Freak]] released Pokémon X for the [[Nintendo 3DS]] in 2013, the tentative title (unconfirmed to be a codename for Crystal) for a game similar to the Japanese version of {{game|Crystal}} with planned support to [[Pokémon Mobile System GB|connect to a mobile phone]] and set for an April 2000 release was also ''Pocket Monsters X'' (ポケットモンスターX), according to multiple sources such as an {{wp|Asahi Shimbun}} news article from December 1999.<ref>[ ネット最前線:ニュース]</ref> The game was postponed until 2001 due to the planned release of the [[Game Boy Advance]].<ref>[ ポケモン情報サイト「palette」過去ログ38 - ポケパレ!]</ref> The article mentions an [[Mobile Game Boy Adapter|adapter]] for linking a [[Game Boy]] to a mobile phone, with the datacenter server used for the feature being hosted by {{wp|Kyocera}} in {{wp|Kyoto}}.
* These are the first [[core series]] games that do not have ''Version'' (or its equivalent in that language) in their Western language names.
* These are the onlyfirst Nintendo-published games to be released on the same date worldwide,<ref>[ Famitsu]</ref> as well as the only core series games to do so.
** However, the first trailers for {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}} showed that they were intended to be released worldwide sometime in November 2014, until the final trailers established that the games would be released in Europe on November 28, 2014 after their release in the rest of the countries on November 21 of that year.
* These Pokémon games have the shortest names using only one letter each (X and Y).
