    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?

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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