Really excited about this. Question is... X or Y? I like the legendary for Y, but I like Mega Charizard X better the Y. I'm sure which either way I go I could probably trad for them pretty easily.

Toys r Us will be having a sale where you can buy 1 3DS game and another for 40% off running through the 12th. I'm gonna try to take advantage and pick up both.

I'm pretty excited. A little disappointed at the apparently low new Pokemon count though (70 I think- not including mega evolutions and hidden/event Pokemon). Gotta hurry up and finish Pokemon White 2. Probably going to take advantage of the Toys'R'Us B1G1 40% off deal, as I still have a promo gift card I need to use from GTA V. Dunno if I'll keep both games- maybe sell one or give it as a gift.

But even 70 would bring the number to above 700. Truthfully only 70 sounds good to me, especially if it will get rid of the clones. Every game has a Ratatta clone, a Pidgey clone a Caterpie/Weedle clone, lots of little Pikachu likes, ect. If i could have it my way there would be more (pre)evolutions in the game and less completely new Pokemon.

I think I will get both as well now that I know about the Toys R Us deal. I realized that there are now enough generations that you could play like a gym leader and have all fire/water/grass starters, so that could be cool. A team of Charmander, Cyndiquill, Torchic, Chimchar, Tepig, and Fennikin sounds pretty cool (other than a Water type gym). The only problem is you can't transfer pokemon from b/w to x/y until December...

I ordered a physical copy of X and I'm downloading a digital copy of Y. First games I've been excited about in a while so I'm hoping they can hold my attention for a few run through at least.

I hope you're all enjoying X and Y while I cry without a 3DS. I'm hoping for a black friday sale because i don't want to get a 2DS.

This game is amazing. Everything I've ever wanted from Pokemon! By the way, I suggest you all check out wonder trade, some people don't quite understand how it works, so try to get something good while you can! I traded a level 2 Bunnelby for a level 27 Spanish Trapinch! By the way, for those shiny hunters out there, breeding a pokemon from a different region (USA, England, etc.), with a pokemon from your region doubles your chances of a shiny! Happy Hunting!
