The Pokemon Company and Nintendo will be launching the Nintendo 3DS video games Pokemon X and Pokemon Y simultaneously worldwide on October 12th, and in conjunction, Cartoon Network will be hosting a Pokemon animation event on Saturday, October 19th, which includes the premiere of Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakend. In a CCG tie-in, the Red Genesect Collection will be released September 25th.
ICv2 covered the announcement of the Pokemon X & Y sets back in January (see "'Pokemon X' and 'Y'"), but details on the CCG sets themselves have not been released. However, they should closely follow the video game release in Q4, probably in November.
The trailer (above) for Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened, features not only the new Red Genesect (which will make its CCG debut on September 25th in the Red Genesect Collection- see below), but also the new Mega MewTwo, which is relevant because of the new ‘Mega-Evolved’ forms of other Pokemon that feature heavily in gameplay for both the video game and new CCG set.
The on-air event will include a sneak peek of the newest upcoming season of the Pokémon animated series, Pokémon the Series: XY, which is set in the world introduced in the video game Pokémon X and Pokémon Y and will feature the animation debut of new Pokemon including Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie. Several other X & Y Pokemon characters: Alexa, Gogoat, Helioptile, and Noivern, will also make their debut on Pokémon: BW Adventures in Unova and Beyond on the October 12th episode on Cartoon Network.
