With Pre-Orders for Pokemon X & Y cropping up on many sites now including Amazon, GAME, EBGames, PlayAsia etc. Have you or will you be pre-ordering them, or will you just pick up a copy in store when they're released?

Most likely once I have my 3DS and when pre-orders are made available in the US. All depends if I can get the money on time.The only time I pre-ordered a Pokemon game was for Pokemon White when Gamestop were giving away the shiny legendary beasts. Didn't know I needed my DS and a Gen IV game so I missed out the chance to get a shiny Raikou, a Celebi and Zoroark for my game. >.<

Probably the very least not yet.

Where I live I don't usually have to worry too much about games getting sold out....that said I might pre order a month or so before release.

Nope! It's not necessary to pre-order something that's not likely to sell out on the first day, anyway. XD

They've never sold out on the first day where I live before, so I doubt they will this time. It'd have to take a really good bonus gift to get me to pre-order.

I will preorder...if I get a preorder bonus. Otherwise, probably not.
My Chainsaw Meowth is currently missing! If you have a lead or think you know something, PLEASE PM ME! I am desperately searching, and I dread the possibility that I may never find him...
On a side note, if anybody can answer the following question right, then they get a mystery prize! *Must have a Gen V game to claim prize*
Question: What the heck did Jinora do in the finale?! I don't get it! I know 90% of you won't know what I'm talking about, but I need an answer!

Most likely I will not pre order it. Thus far the only game I've ever wanted and ended up being sold out was Pearl...though I'm glad as I later learned about Platinum which was to come out in 9 months after I tried to buy Pearl (I didn't enter gen 4 until quite late...) so I waited for the third version.

The only time I've preordered was when I imported and since the games come out worldwide in October as well as 3DS being region locked, no need for that. I've never preordered English copies so I probably won't do that. I may ask for people to preorder me a copy for my birthday though. My birthday is in August. Last year for B2W2, I just saved birthday money till their release, but still, it'd be nice if someone just bought them for me so I can use my money on other things idk. lol So maybe I'll actually preorder a game I can read for once!

Yep, I'm definitely pre-ordering both Pokémon X and Pokémon Y from EB Games here in Warrnambool, Australia. The games are so exciting and so amazing, since I saw the Pokémon Direct presentation. And even today... I'm still excited about the games, I wouldn't wait any longer to pre-order the games immediately.

Either yes or no,
I don't really know,
I can afford just buying it right away but....
I don't have to go out and buy it if I Pre-ordered.
But I'm sure I can just go out and buy it.

I will probably pre-order at least one, if not both. One of the two gamestops closed last year, putting more pressure on the other to have games in stock.
I just know that I want to have at least one on release day so I can begin a Let's Play now that Ive got a good setup for it.

Yeah I'm gunna pre-order. Not sure if I can really afford to get both at once, given how much the 3DS costs, but we'll see! I want to pre-order just for the bonus, to clarify ~

*sigh* I can't.. If I could though, I won't unless I have a 3DS, which I will probably never get until I'm old enough to buy one for myself without anyone caring much about what I buy. [i]If[\i] I had a 3DS, I will have to see about the gift that comes with pre-ordering. It's simple: if there is a gift, I'll pre-order. If there isn't a gift, I won't. I love free gifts.
