Pokémon X and Pokémon Y fans will be able to get their first chance to demo the game at the PAX conference in 10 days as Nintendo's latest addition to their famed franchise comes to the 3DS.

The Japanese gaming company made the announcement today and said the PAX conference will also include a Pokémon Gaming Lounge, that will be on the second floor of the Washington State Convention Center, where the event is held.

According to Kotaku, a demo version of the game along with "swag" will be found inside.

Nintendo teased another Pokémon game coming to the Wii U aside from Pokémon X and Y on the 3DS at an event in Japan this last weekend.

According to IGN.com the preview was at a Pokémon Game Show event where the company showed a brief recap of all the games in the series as well as the popular card game in the 90s. The montage ended with two distorted Pokémon characters facing off in a battle in what appears to be a new game.

The next upcoming games for Nintendo are Pokémon Rumble U for the Wii U on August 29, and Pokémon X and Y for the 3DS on October 12.

Pokémon X and Y is bringing a change to one of the most popular series' of all time by adding a new feature called "Mega Evolutions."

In the game's universe, players capture these Pokémon to train and battle against other opponents. In an RPG style of play, the stronger your Pokémon gets, the more it will level up. Once one of these creatures reaches a certain level, they evolve into a stronger form of themselves. Some Pokémon, however, require a certain stone or scenario to make them transform. In X and Y certain Pokémon will need a Mega Stone.

Nintendo will also be showcasing The Wonderful 101 and a slew of other games for the Wii U, as well as a panel of creators on board to speak about the console.
