The Professor, Purataanu, shall be known in English as Professor Sycamore. Team Flare will keep its Japanese name and finally, the two Gym Leaders, Shitoron and Zakuro shall be called Clemont & Grant respectively Clemont has a sister called Bonnie.
Miracle trade is known as Wonder Trade and allows you to receive Pokémon without knowing what you'll get. O-Powers keep their name. The Holo Caster is also used to communicate with other characters in the game. For the first time in the main Pokémon series, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y allow you to receive a Pokémon not yet registered in your Pokédex via GTS trade! Some O-Powers will temporarily increase a Pokémon’s stats, while others make it easier to catch wild Pokémon or increase the Experience Points gained in battle.
You can also take photos in the game that can be shared and posted to the Pokémon Global Link. Milestones in your journey can also be shared on it, and can then be posted to social networks.
Participants of the upcoming Global Showdown WiFi Competition will gain entry to XY Test Competition. The online battle features also result in a loss if you disconnect.
