I'm going to be buying Pokemon X, and there's really no reason behind the decision. I just like the name better.

This is my main reason haha.

Plus I prefer Xerneas over Yveltal...can't explain it either.
What is this, some sort of basketball manga?

I'm getting both. Best part is that if they go digital, I can have my main being digital, and my optional for exclusives being the one I bought retail.

I'll be getting both X and Y. Both of the legendary Pokemon look really cool and I always get both versions anyway.

Unfortunately I won't be able to play either game as I don't have a 3DS and do not plan to get one solely for one game. I am not made of money and my DS lite still performs fine even at it's pretty old age. I also am not a fan of 3D. Waste of money and terrible for your eyes.

The fire starter however is adorable! If indeed that is what the unfamiliar yellow fox pokemon I have recently seen is. I would love to have it.

Y because of Yveltal, and because I usually play the "secondary" Pokemon game when they come out. (i.e. Pearl, White, etc.)

None. They don't appeal to me. Thats my opinion, if you guys disagree, then do so.

I believe in Jesus Christ my Savior. If you do too, and aren't scared to admit it, then copy and paste this in your signature.
If you say "pls" or "plz" because it's shorter than "please", I'll say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".

I shall be getting X because I want that deer legendary!

Hopefully they don't do a switch like Black/White. I bought white because I wanted Reshiram, but of course, I got Zekrom.

Next time, I bought black 2 so I'd get Reshiram. -facepalm- Of course, you get the other legendary. I'm researching my games before I buy them from now on.

We've barely seen any information and you're already deciding they don't appeal to you? It seems a bit soon to be coming to that conclusion lol.

Anyway, I think it's too early for me to decide what game I'd get but based on the little we know, I would be inclined to go with X because I adore Xerneas.

At the moment, the only version exclusive things to be revealed are the legendaries and I personally prefer Yvetal or however you spell him... so at this point, Pokemon Y.

For my first. My brother already called dibs on X so that means I'm getting Y. Which is funny since my brother has always gotten the red game when it was available. XD

Red/Blue, He got red, I got blue.
Ruby/Sapphire, He got Ruby, I got Sapphire.
Fire Red/Leaf Green, He got Fire Red, I got Leaf Green.

Now he wants the blue game Pokemon X XD

Idk, what to buy for now, But I prefer Xerneas so probably X. Don't have a stable decision since I don't know the version differences and all those other stuff. I'll wait until a month before the release before I decide what I'll get :3

I'm kinda shocked more people seem to be voting X. (not a bad thing) Personally I have never really liked any of the deer pokemon. Birds are way cooler in my opinion, so ill be getting Y and then maybe x but not till i can pick it up second hand.

Y, those wings of the legendary look awsome. I don't see anything powerful about a deer(my opinion).

I have my own world XD.

I'll probably pick X. As awesome as Yveltal looks and sounds, I always choose the slightly more dominant version(which is usually the version first mentioned in the pair.) like how I always have been doing in the previous generations(FireRed, Diamond, Black, Black 2), except for some few (Sapphire and SoulSilver). It seems more comforting for me.

Trainer Data:
Full Name: Mithel "Myth" Celestia
Gender: Male
Hometown: Lacunosa Town
Trainer class: Ranger, Psychic, Deceiver*
Specializes in: Dark, Psychic-Types

*Deceiver (Japanese: 奇術師 Illusionist) is a type of trainer class who specializes in Illusions and deceptive tactics to take advantage of their opponents. They are tricksters and tend to disguise themselves as another trainer class to deceive challenging trainers, but soon break off of it as soon as they are found. They tend to use annoyer and stall tactics such as Embargo and Swagger along with bulky and fast Dark-types like Zoroark and Umbreon to give trainers a hard time during battle.
