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. >.<

Merry Christmas everyone!

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.

Researching the NDS ROMs...

sure does feel like a brand new adventure!

I'm really looking forward to learning how to understand what the hex values mean and how to create programs using Microsoft Visual Studio!

Always focus on the present, best thing to do! Never look back into the past and never worry about anything bad of the future!

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.

*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.
