I will be picking up these games because I feel guilty. I have not played a generation 5 game. It is not because I dislike the pokemon or the style, it is just because I never picked one up. I feel that playing these games will redeem myself as a pokemon fan. I have been playing every game since I got my pokemon Red and my Pikachu gameboy color when I was 5. I also feel like I need to use my 3DS more often. (I am planning on picking up both Pokemon Black/White 1 and 2 within the next few months)

I'll be purchasing the game since Pokemon has always been my main source of happiness -whether its the anime, the games, someone else's drawings (like the ones on DeviantArt), or my own, all the plushies and plastic figurines- Can't wait to see 3D Pokemon! I"m ready for the games, my grandma bought me 3DS XL about two weeks ago.

and because Pokemon Reigns!!

Because I'll finally be able to travel through familiar terrain. ;3 Or at least be able to search for clues and hints that look familiar. |D

That aside though (as it's far from the main reason), I'm actually looking forward to new games. It means a whole new world (gotta love the Jotho opening song), new experiences, new creatures, new story. I loved the story of BW, and I can't wait to see if they'll give XY a story which is just as good... if not better. Generation 4 was a bit of a let-down for me, but now I'm back into Pokémon and I can't wait for them to reveal the Pokédex.

I have been playing at least one main series Pokemon game since Generation 3 and X & Y will be no exception, Pokemon is basically a franchise I'll never let go of.

And given I got my 3DS XL recently, it's about time!

I'll be getting the game because it's a part of one of my favoriite franchises, and can seemingly be enjoyed no matter how old you are. Granted, I didn't really want to buy a 3DS since I've only had my DS Lite for about a year and a half, but I'm too excited to see the big leap to a 3D world to miss out on it (and since it doesn't come out until October, I've got plenty of time to save up).

'Cause I became so excited about Pokémon X and Pokémon Y ever since I heard about them on the Pokémon Direct presentation! And even today, I'm really excited and I really can't wait to get the games. Especially how cute the starter Pokémon really are. And it makes me think how amazing the games really are since they've made the complete switch to full 3D, now the characters and the Pokémon are in full 3D, which makes them even more amazing. ^^

That's why I'll be getting these games, I'll be pre-ordering them as soon as possible. ;)

I've always loved Pokemon ever since Pokemon Yellow.

I enjoy the gameplay, I enjoy exploring the new region and seeing it's pokemon. I suppose really I just enjoy the pokemon world and how it works.

If I ever bought a pokemon game that hugely disappointed me that would probably be the end, but that hasn't happened yet.

Moi aussi. Asking this question on a Pokémon forum is a bit like going to a Britney forum and asking why they're going to buy her latest album. You don't need a specific reason, you just do.

The better question is... why not? :3

Pokemon is just catching my attention further and further with every new generation. They always come up with really great and creative ideas, in my opinion. <3
Whether it be the story, the backbone of the new Pokemon's creations (especially the legends), or the Pokemon themselves, they always manage to nab my attention.

Though I find the new Pokemon catching my attention the absolute most with every new gen. It's not the graphics, the unexplored enviornment, or anything like that.
I want to learn more about the new Pokemon, and experience how much change they've all received from the really basic ones we had so many years ago. :D

I'm picking these games up because it's Pokémon, really, that's all the reason I need. That's it, it just has to be Pokemon and then I want it.

What can I say? Pokémon stole my heart and soul years ago and never game it back. It has me as it's captive and I refuse to be set free.

Just the idea of traveling to a different land, discovering new Pokémon, and turning the pages of a new story is exciting! Even at the end, if it wasn't all you hoped it would be, the journey to get to that finishing point was well worth it. It's the comfort of knowing what to expect yet still finding new things to uncover is what's so enticing about getting your hands on a new Pokémon game. X and Y are no different.

Plus, it's in full blown 3D!!

I will get them because I still enjoy playing Pokemon a lot and I love to see the new things that Nintendo puts into the main games and not more crappy spinoffs.

I've never been disappointed with a pokemon game yet. I like the basic concepts of the games, since they combine a lot of the elements I like in games all in one - exploration, a bit of roleplaying, collecting, upgrading and turn-based strategy. And Pokemon has an unrivaled record for fixing the problems while keeping the good elements - all too many game franchises have fallen prey to the "streamlining" disease and have eliminated features in order to try to broaden their appeal, and/or have shortchanged key game elements in order to make room for meaningless bells and whistles, and while Pokemon has done a bit of both of those things here and there, it's never been to the point that it really impacted my enjoyment of the games. And they continue to expand and improve upon the best features of the games, with new pokemon, new moves, new abilities and new type combinations and thus a reason for me to figure out new strategies, which keeps each new game interesting.

I know graphics aren't everything, but I've really been waiting for a 3D or at least, more animated Pokemon game for a long time, as I'm sure others have been. I look forward to seeing all my favorite Pokemon in a new light, along with all the new-comers. Add the rest of the game that we all know and love, and I'd be crazy to stop now. Maybe I'll finally get more into the online community of the game this time too.

I'm 17 now, and I've been dreaming of a 3D game since I got my first Pokemon game, Emerald.

And then I played Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness, and I realized that 3D battles were possible, and I saw how amazing and engaging they looked, and they were so much fun! I actually felt like I was part of the game. I felt sad that I couldn't catch Pokemon properly though, or fight the Elite Four, or battle Gym Leaders.

I bought Diamond, and it was fun, but I didn't finish it. I couldn't go back to those boring sprite battles anymore. The mechanics were great and all, but you can only become engrossed in a game so much when everything is so unrealistic. The pokemon in XD felt so REAL, and these Diamond Pokemon didn't. Besides, my favourite Pokemon, Lucario, looked so ugly as a sprite!

I didn't buy any more Pokemon games or play any more games after that.

And then the announcement for X and Y came out. I totally FREAKED OUT! I was extremely happy. I wasn't expecting a 3D game to ever come out as a mainstream game, and it caught me totally caught me by surprise. I had long since sold my DS Lite, and I hadn't played Pokemon for 4 years, but my interest in it had remained a little.

I am literally going to buy a $200 3DS console for the sole reason of playing one of these games. I've been waiting for 3D for WAY too long, and now it's finally coming! :D

I will be getting this game because I love RPG games (from Pokémon to Dungeons & Dragons ), I love Pokémon, I love the 3DS, and I love the later Pokémon generations!! Also Fennekin is SO CUTE!!!!
So those are the reasons I will be getting X/Y. Now I have to decide... which one?
