X because Y's version of Mega Charizard looks terrible.

#2 Edited by overlordkai (23 posts) -

getting Y cause of better mew

#3 Edited by EarlessShrimp (1824 posts) -

Getting X because, well it's better! I was talking to the dude at my local gamestop and he told me they had way more pre-orders for Y than X if that means anything?

#4 Posted by shinboy630 (1368 posts) -

X because that deer is majestic as fuck.

#5 Posted by Marmalade (202 posts) -

Y version because I like the colour red more than blue.

#6 Posted by ChrisOVC (174 posts) -

X Version because I had Pokemon blue instead of red

#7 Posted by Superkenon (1590 posts) -

X because I always get the Blue equivalent.

#8 Posted by Vessel28 (181 posts) -

Y but if there's anymore "here's a cooler X version of something so you guys buy more X copies" announcements like for Blastoise, then I may change. I realise that what I said is probably rubbish but in my mind it makes sense.

#9 Posted by SMTDante89 (2778 posts) -

Picking up Y at launch, and I'll probably ask for X as a Christmas gift.

#10 Posted by Akyho (1853 posts) -

X.....because I went to the counter to pre order and went "I want to preorder the new Pokemon uuuuuuuuuuuuh X............" Then realised Y is the one with the better legendary.

However with more research I have seen I really do want X, mega evolutions and other pokemon exclusives I want X.

#11 Posted by Turtlebird95 (3556 posts) -

I reserved Y, so probably that. Don't give a hoot about Charizard because I'm Team Blastoise for life.

#12 Edited by alanm26v5 (551 posts) -

That's an impressive even split so far. I went with X kind of randomly.

#14 Posted by DystopiaX (5416 posts) -

X because that deer is majestic as fuck.


#15 Posted by Wess (180 posts) -

Y because my friend is getting X.

Also, I don't care what everyone else thinks, Mega Charizard X is not Charizard in my book, and Mega Mewtwo X is just.. well. I don't care for it.

I do wish I could get Clauncher though.

#16 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4243 posts) -

Which is the Red equivalent this time around?.

#17 Posted by TruthTellah (9728 posts) -

Pokemon X for Life, yo.


#18 Posted by MideonNViscera (2269 posts) -

I think I told them I wanted X. I never looked into the differences. Is X the one with the blue cover? haha

#19 Posted by bobafettjm (1839 posts) -

X purely for the fact that I really like the look of the Mega Charizard.

#20 Edited by Deadmanforking (586 posts) -

Both because I'm so awesome and cool!

#21 Posted by Vorsic (44 posts) -

X because my brother is getting Y. I haven't looked into the differences though.

#22 Posted by DystopiaX (5416 posts) -

yeah it's the one with the DOPE ASS DEER on the cover

#23 Posted by Karkarov (3387 posts) -

I am going for X because back in the day I bought blue. Also I kind of like the Deer better. He is pimping.

#24 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4243 posts) -

@karkarov: Big pimpin', spending g's. He doing, big pimpin' up in NYC. Its just the jigga man, Pimp C, and B-U-N B.

#25 Edited by hidys (1063 posts) -

X because that deer is majestic as fuck.

It is the majesticist.

#26 Posted by Nux (2628 posts) -

Y because that deer looks like shit and that dragon looks awesome.

#27 Posted by phrosnite (3513 posts) -

X to the Y to the Z

#28 Posted by XenoNick (1553 posts) -

Y because it's red. Suck it blue. Also my mate is getting X.

#29 Posted by aajf (239 posts) -

X, because I get serious Mononoke vibes from that deer.

#30 Posted by MideonNViscera (2269 posts) -

Something tells me we have much more arbitrary reasons than the GameFaqs board haha

#31 Posted by mr187uk (178 posts) -

I picked Y just because I preferred the front cover, but then again I'm getting the eshop version ;-§.

#32 Posted by alanm26v5 (551 posts) -

Hmm I just checked my Amazon preorder for X, and it's not shipping until the 18th. Am I crazy for considering going to my local Walmart on launch night and seeing if I can get a copy of Y? I'm going to want it to catch 'em all anyway right?

#33 Posted by Hunter5024 (6542 posts) -

I chose Y because I have a Y in my name, and because I like the color red better than blue. The legendary looks a bit cooler as well, though I expect he will be less useful. Mewtwo Y is also the superior looking version, though it's kinda lame he doesn't get a secondary type too.

#34 Edited by crusader8463 (14755 posts) -

Whatever one has the red bird on the cover. The blue one looks dumb.

#35 Edited by RecSpec (4876 posts) -

I love the Y-vern, and thanks to future tech trading for the version exclusives is easy enough. Also Mewtwo with shoulderpads? No thanks, I'll take Super Buu

#36 Edited by Budwyzer (786 posts) -


I'll get X. I like to X-elerate!

Also, wtf happened to Firebreather? I thought it was going to go on past the one-off little movie.

Sorry if I'm a little behind, I just woke up from my Cryo-sleep.

#37 Posted by DeadeyeMcCoy (274 posts) -

Y, my buddy's getting X. Plus, I always get the warmer color.

#38 Edited by Driadon (3125 posts) -

Technically I'm buying both, but my fiance wants to play through X, and I Y, so...yeah!

Edit: I also just checked, and I guess that also works for which gender chromosome we are, so that's also a thing.

#39 Posted by Vasta_Narada (539 posts) -

Y because majestic deer are nothing compared to BIRDS THAT ARE SHAPED LIKE THE LETTER Y. Also I like Mewtwo Y better.

I suppose I'll just have to hit up the online trading service for some Clauncher action.

#40 Posted by Optix12 (657 posts) -

Confirmed with my friend he is getting Y and I guess ive now preordered X. I havent played one since the gold version and I borrowed that off a friend for a week so this should actually be a pretty fun game for me.

#41 Posted by coakroach (2495 posts) -

I have to wait to find out if Wooper/Quagsire is exclusive to one or the other.

Because I needs me a Quagsire.

#42 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (6400 posts) -

I always try to get the blue equivalent, so X.

#43 Edited by illmatic19 (971 posts) -

X because I like antlers.

So are the best selling versions Red, Silver, Ruby, Diamond?

#44 Edited by Itwongo (1657 posts) -

X because of dat deer, and I can just trade for the exclusives.

#45 Posted by JJOR64 (19610 posts) -


#46 Posted by MormonWarrior (2861 posts) -

X. It's blue and has a fairy deer. Also the "mega Mewtwo" doesn't look as stupid in X, but I'm not even sure really what that is even after reading several reviews.

#47 Posted by Beforet (3029 posts) -

Prolly X, if I ever get around to buying. I like Y's legendary better, but Mega Charzard X is black. Motherfucker is black. There's not going back from that!

#48 Posted by HatKing (6853 posts) -

X because I'm not a sexist, you sexists.

#49 Posted by onarum (2673 posts) -

Y because I like birds... that's about it.

X because my brother is getting Y.

Exactly this. With the Pokebank stuff it should be easy for us to switch versions once we finish.
