I'll probably go with Pokemon Y because I love the look of that smexy bird-dragon-demon-sky monster! I want him so badly...

When I first saw the name I thought that it was meaning gender - like X(X) for female and Y(X) for male! So I was leaning towards X as it is.. but I much prefer the X legendary so I'll be jumping on that bandwagon probably :)

I thought the same the first time I saw the names. But it seems that it has to do with the legendaries' shape.

Although the red dragon it's amazing and I like it a lot, I must admit that the blue elk just looks majestic. I think (and hope) I'll buy both

Allez, hop!

Both. I always get both versions, I use one as my "main" and another as the one I can restart and play

Hard to say without knowing exclusives.

I have had a tendency in the past to go for the second game so right now I'm voting Pokemon Y.

I'm definitely buying both. I know from past experience that when I buy one game, I end up wanting the other one too, so... yeah :) .

Y all the way. Since I like the Legendary mascot. That looks amazing. Also, I think that Y could have some pretty decent Version Exclusives. Just my personal view.
Pokemon Y > Pokemon X

Don't agree? Sorry for spoiling your day.

Coming soon... a new game... after I've finished Pokemon Steel of course.

I can't choose. Both look so Awesome, especially the Legendaries.

Maybe, I might get both this time around.

Since the only thing we can base this on right now is the legendaries, and the X-eyed elk ends up being X's mascot, I will probably end up getting X.

Judging by both of the legendaries, I'm going to be getting both. I don't have a preference between the two, and I usually end up getting both games anyway.

It's too early for me to say. We dot even know version differences and we've barely had any looks at th legendaries. But I'd have to say X at this point, cause it sounds cooler, and there won't be stupid memes made out of the name.
same here because i wanna know what each one has in the game because usually different pokemon and towns are in each game.

Assuming that X is going to be the more popular of the 2 games, I'll probably end up getting Y. But, that's really just from name alone. Once we truly start finding out more about the games and their differences, I may change my opinion on that.

As with any new pair of games, I'll be getting both and a third copy later so that I can have a storage game. Usually the third one I purchase is the one I prefer the most of the two.

For me, I'll have to wait on the poll, and find out what the version exclusives will be. I want to buy the game that will feature the majority of my favorite Pokemon, including future gen 6 favorites.
I Fire Foxes!! but I also like: PokeFelines - PokeMustelids - PokeSquirrels
6 Favorite Pokemon are:

It's kind of hard to chose~ Probably Y because I love that legendary, but I'd may end up with both versions too. @___@

I'll get both but it depends on the version exclusives on which becomes my main game.

It's tempting to get both, but I would rather wait later in the year to find out the version exclusive Pokemon. More likely I'll get Y instead of X, I have this pattern where I get the 2nd version of the games. xD
How did the young survive? We're never satisfied, only if I could listen.

I haven't decided as of yet. Until more information is released about the version differences/exclusives, I'll be getting neither or both.

Definitely going with Pokemon Y. The legendary that appears in the Pokemon Y seems too cool and as for Pokemon X, I don't really like quadruped Pokemon, so this is pretty easy for me

Pokemon Y all the way for me! The Mascot looks better to me and I like playing the version that other people don't seem to want to play as much!
My past is like my logic, straight and true. Nothing's changed. All I did was point the finger of justice in the proper direction.

Based on what we know so far, i'd probably pick Y. Generally I don't like to use legendaries at all and find a large majority of them ugly, but both of the ones shown actually look pretty boss.
