Aren't X and Y the same storyline? Would it be even worth it to get both versions?

This is the first generation that I absolutely love both mascot legendaries(1st gen and remakes don't count since mascots weren't legendaries).

I like Xerneas, but Yveltal is so much cooler. Lugia has always been my favorite legendary, and I have always thought "They should make an evil looking red and black themed version of Lugia, I would love that." Well, Yveltal is pretty much that, and I love it.

But I will definitely be getting Y version.

1. Yveltal, as mentioned above
2. Better cover art
3. Red and Black are my favorite colors, and Y uses those two.

But that's about it for now. I wonder what all will be version exclusive?

I'm planning on getting both games. Sometime around third gen or so, I concluded that when I don't get both games to begin with, I always end up wanting to pick up the game I didn't get at a later date. It's a lot easier to just get both games at once and save myself the trouble of hunting for the second version later.

Admittedlly, I rarely have time to play the second version of most of the games I pick up these days, but I still like having it. I'm not sure which version will be my main one, but I'm leaning towards X (because I like the letter X better than the letter Y).

Y only because of Yveltal. Yveltal looks way better than a harmless deer.

Y. But I'll end up getting both, or if there's a third version then I'm getting that before X.

I usually wait until the version exclusive Pokemon are announced. However, if the trend continues and I end up getting the version of the legendary that I favor (excluding generation four, but I got that for a christmas present) then it's very likely that I'll be getting Y.

I like the letter X, but I'm leaning towards Y because of badass Yveltal. I want to find out the types of both the legendaries and version exclusives before i make my decision, though.

Personally, I prefer Xerneas... so I'll be getting X. However, my husband and I are always at odds on which version to get, so we pre-ordered Y as well.

Seing as the types are not released yet I speculated that Yveltal will be a fire flying pokémon and Xerneas will be a a pokémon having powers either dark or ghost in nature, I prefer Xerneas in that respect so I will be preordering X when I get the money in August/September.

I'm still not able to pick between them for now, but I think I'm leaning towards Y. Of course, I think I need to know what I'm getting into...

Or maybe I should get both, but boy, they are expensive!

Xerneas >>>>>>>>>> Yveltal.

So X is the obvious choice, I'm not too bothered about the other version exclusives.

Don't know yet, there is no way near enough information about them for me to make a decision. I need to know the version exclusives and differences in storyline and locations. I don't see the point in picking one purely based on the main legendary -- it's most likely only going to appear near the end and I almost certainly won't be having it in my party anyway.

I think I'm getting y. I know a lot of people think Xerneas is cooler but I like Yveltal more. Also, it seems from what I have heard that most people will be getting X so I will be going for Y if thats the case.

I'll probably get both of them like usual. But i wish they would change the storyline in the games so you dont play the same game twice. Just imagine if there was 2 different stories with different towns and pokes. I bet they would make alot more money and we would love it, at that point there could be talks about which game plays better and which storyline is better.

Prooobably not gonna buy both this time around, and at the moment I'm still leaning more towards Y- Yvertal is just amazing whereas Xerneas is okay but not as epic looking imo (I bet I just butchered the spelling of the names so bad. D:)

that would be awesome. In fact I saw someone post earlier somewhere about being able to play as the evil team. It would cool if one game you played as the good guy and then the other game played the same story but this time as the bad guy (team plasma w/e). Which would make for some new gameplay, but not enough new gameplay that it would take them to long to make it. I think this would be a great idea.
