Nintendo is "exploring the possibilities" of releasing DLC for upcoming Pokemon titles Pokemon X & Y.

Speaking at a round-table event at E3 earlier today, The Pokemon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara revealed that his team was "thinking of things" to be released as downloadable content, but "unfortunately we don't have anything we can announce today".

Nintendo has ramped up its focus on DLC this year with downloadable content being developed for first-party titles Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates To Infinity and New Super Mario Bros. U.

Pokemon X & Y release worldwide on October 12.

What would you like to see released as DLC for Pokemon X & Y? Would you like to see additional Pokemon or dungeons, or would you rather they were saved for a future tite?

The only additional Pokemon DLC that I would find acceptable would be to purchase a Pokemon like Victini who only was available at a certain time. Any other additional Pokemon via paid DLC I would never purchase. Though I totally agree with you on bringing back prior regions, that would be awesome.

Additional Pokemon via paid for DLC would NEVER happen. There would be a massive fan outrage. However bringing back favourite gyms or entire regions from prior pokemon games is something most fans would want.
