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.

I also dislike Mega Charizard X, plus it seems X is by far the most popular version so it should make it very easy for me to trade for a Clauncher. Woohoo.

X because that deer is majestic as fuck.

X because I played Blue, not Red. Also, that deer is the most majestic looking Pokémon ever made.

I think EB Games fucked up and reserved me Y haha

X because chromosomes and gender roles.

...because the guy before me bought Y. This is the first game I bought without researching the differences.

I was all set for X, but I just found out Y has Tyranitar.

I was going to get a copy of X off amazon, but now that I know I can buy it digitally off the e-shop I'm opting for that. I don't have the patience to wait a whole week before getting my hands on the pokegoodness.

@funkasaurasrex: Trade for it, son. I hear Tyranitarite is X exclusive.

Oh dip, looks like you're right. Thanks duder.

I am starting off with Y version.

#63 Edited by phantomzxro (1576 posts) -

I'm going X

#64 Posted by Itwongo (1193 posts) -

I was gonna go X, but now I'm not sure. More and more exclusive megas are showing up, with the Pokemon in one version but the stone in the other. It'd be easy to obtain the Pokemon through trading, but the stones are going to have such a high perceived value that obtaining them may be near impossible. It's hard deciding which I'd rather have.

This was a really unfortunate day to discover that my 3DS charger has broken.

I'll be getting X, provided I can also pick up a new charger tomorrow.

I'm going Y, homes! Love me some Heracross!

#67 Posted by triple07 (1196 posts) -

This thread is no help in deciding which one to get! Ive always been a red man so I was thinking of Y but then that deer looks cool as shit. Plus I prefer X over Y but thats hardly a reason to choose a version. Fuck, Nintendo why do you make 2 different versions of the same game?!?

Deers are dumb, but I like that bird thing okay.

I'm getting the opposite version of whatever my friend gets. Sounds like he's getting Y, so X it is.

just bought and am downloading x from the eshop. im a grown ass man whos barely played any pokemon. what is wrong with me.

#71 Edited by triple07 (1196 posts) -

Ended up getting X as that deer is indeed majestic as fuck. Also I got tired of thinking about it so I just grabbed one.

#72 Posted by PandaBear (1371 posts) -

Judging by this poll and Instagram, X is the clear favourite... if you're buying soon you should get Y as you're exclusives may be more valuable.

Team Y

Walked into a Best Buy, walked up to the counter said "Can I get a copy of that new pokemon game?" They asked me which one I wanted, I said it didn't matter, so I got X which was on the top of the box behind the counter.

#75 Edited by BasketSnake (1199 posts) -

I ordered Y. My first pokemon game.

'nuff said.

#77 Posted by Darth Paul (108 posts) -

I used to just get whatever version that my brother wasn't getting, but since he doesn't own a 3DS this is the first Pokemon game where I need to just make a decision by myself on which version to get. I originally wanted Y because Yvetal is more appealing, but after some research X seems like the overall better version with more exclusive pokemon that I'd rather get in game so that's probably the version that I'll be getting eventually.

X because its a cooler letter.

and rainbow deer
