I can only assume this means all of the English translation of names, cities etc will come at the same pace as we receive the information.

I didn't see it coming but it's definitely a good thing. Now I won't have to wait for the English release and be spoiled with the Japanese players talking about it. There was alot of thing I knew about Black 2 and White 2 before I even bought it and it was hard to avoid spoilers. I'm thinking worldwide means they'll all be released on the same date so it;'s definitely a good thing.

It's a new thing that Japan and English version will be releasing at the same time but it's a good thing for us because I think that a very few people knows Japanese except people from Japan but English is talked worldwide. So we don't have to wait for a game of our language.

My birthday happens to be conveniently located in October, so I am pleased with this.

... Of course, it's October 1st, so I likely won't be getting it for my birthday unless mom takes a rain check on one of my presents, but there's always birthday money.

They FINALLY did this! Something I noticed was that when it was released in Japan and the ROMs came out that people would get them with the English packs and not buy the game... Hopefully this deters that from happening!

I'm super excited for it though.

This is certainly something new, but I think it's awesome. Finally, no waiting over a year to play a game I've been anticipating for just as long! No memorizing all of the Japanese information before I have the chance to hear anything in English! No incredible spoilers before I get to experience the games myself! No . . . oh my God, no a lot of things and many other yes to good things!
I think you can tell that I am ever so slightly excited. I'm supposed to be working on stuff in Art right now. Yeah, I shouldn't have logged on to PC. Now there's no way my Art is getting done. @_@ Now to go to lunch next period and gossip with my friend to sound like a pokemon genius! xD

Lol, my bf's birthday happens to be the same day. Thanks, now I'll remember to save enough money to buy the games and a 3DS for him too. xD

We got a localised Nintendo Direct at the same time, so I guess it's only logical the games release around the same time or so. The localization folks even went as far as to localise whatever they could that showed in the trailer too.

You can tell that they're being serious about their worldwide release.

The good thing about this is we'll finally be able to avoid spoilers.

What are you going to say if there's a 3 day gap between releases and then "RED IS THE CHAMPION" pops up on Twitter?

Then avoid all social media until you play the game! XDDD
But it is good that they do look like they are taking the whole World Wide seriously.

This is going to be interesting. Not only do I need to save up for the games but now I need to buy a whole new system since I now have a reason to do so. I'm in desprate need of a job asap because that is sure to put a dent in my pockets. But on the bright side this is AWESOME! I fell in love with Fennekin so That's gonna be my Starter for Pokemon X but now I have to choose between Chespin & Froakie for Pokemon Y.

This makes me happy. At first I was thinking, "Damn, 3DS is region locked so I can't import and have the game early anymore." Then I went to watch the trailer and it said worldwide this October. Had to do a double take at that, haha. This makes me happy though, since the wait won't seem so bad now that it's October 2013 for everyone. It seems like a long way away, but in the last three years, I've really figured out that time goes...waaaay too fast haha. So it'll be here in no time really.

A worldwide release in the age of globalization is a nice touch. We can all start the game at the same time, and not have to wait for it to make its way overseas.

Definitely a nice decision to do a worldwide release; the waiting game was the hardest part for me and now we can just get it around the same time as everyone else. No more spoiling it for myself either out of impatience, whoo! :3;

I have to say this a great thing! I can only think of good things (well, we will all connect at once worldwidely to the GTS or whatever it is called in the new games and the servers will go down lol hopefully, they will be ready for things like these). Eventually we will play at the same time Japaneses do! This is like the dream of any non-Japanese Pokemon fan :D

...about why they're able to get the games released at the same time in all areas.

Me and a friend theorized it's because they only had to make 3D models for the new generation. The models in Pokedex 3D Pro are what they're using in X/Y! So they've had months to work on the models XD

1. Lol Nope
2. They are Using Cel-Shaded Models in X and Y not the Ones in the Pokedex 3D
They Would Have been working on X and Y long before Pokedex 3D Came Out

I am absolutely amazed about how it's going to be released worldwide on the same month, I was like "wow really? Same month as Japan? This is brilliant!" xD

I'm so glad that they're finally releasing Pokémon games in the same month, this won't keep people waiting for the games anymore, and everyone can start playing it right away. ^^

Well this just shows how much they actually do care about the entire fanbase, and I'm glad we won't have to wait much longer than the Japanese before getting to play the games, and getting possible spoilers :p I wonder if this mean that the localization team is working alongside the developers though, or if they just have people within Gamefreak working as a localization team, or maybe something third. Guess it doesn't mean much, but it'd still be nice to know how they're pulling this off :p

I'm glad that we will all be getting the game at the same times. The purpose of this is to make fans feel more connected, and I am very glad Nintendo and Gamefreak did this! I hope that this will happen with many future games.
