I plan on reserving my copy of both X & Y at a Gamestop once the opportunity presents itself. I wasn't able to do that with B/W2, & if I hadn't came early, the clerk wouldn't have sold those copies to me.

I don't plan on making that same mistake again...

I'm hoping to buy them on release , though at the moment I don't have a 3DS. So I'm gonna try to get a job by the summer so I can save up enough money to get both. I'm leaning more towards a 3DS XL right now since I like the size and better battery life. Once I get a 3DS , I'll pre-order the one I want (Most likely Y but I want to know more version exclusives first.) so I can pick it up on release day in October.

I already preordered both, as well as paid both off. I just need to pick them up when they come out.

I'll probably try to get them, specifically Pokémon X since that's my choice, on October. I do save a lot of money, and I think I can afford it and buy as early as I can. However, I don't buy a lot of games, and the money I save are mostly for emergency uses. So I'll get it then on my birthday or Christmas.

I've got a job so money won't be a problem but I do have to get a 3DS first. Hopefully they'll have a sale between now and october because I definitely want to play the games the day they come out.

My birthday's in mid-October. You guess.

Will have birthday monies to pay for it. Yay for already having a 3DS (solves half the issue lol)

I don't live with my family, and I don't have any friends where I live. My coworkers don't like Pokemon, so I'll probably get this by myself (with boyfriend tagging along for company, whether he wants to or not) and enjoy it by myself lol

I'll probably get X at Walmart on release day, along with a 3DS. Would've bought a 3DS already if I hadn't gotten laid off, I'm hoping there will be some sort of X&Y bundle (maybe with a Xerneas-themed 3DS? Yes please.)

I plan on getting Pokemon X on the release day before I go to work. My local Gamestop is practically right next to where I work.

I may buy one after the overall features common to both and version differences are known. I don't want to buy what is essentially another White only for XY2 to do what BW2 did. Game Freak will have to produce the refined game from the get go and then expand on that with their sequels, not produce half a game then release what the originals should've been.
Should cancel my pre-order, actually... don't know why I would ever pre-order anything.

First I'm gonna get a 3DS. Then after that I'm probably gonna wait a year or so (not sure). Then I'm gonna see if there's a third version then I'll probably gt that since the third version is always the one where you can catch both legendaries from the previous versions :3 Also I'll probably get one after reading those things from serebii since I want to know the version differences like the pokemon, places, and all those other stuff.

I'll pre-order one of the games if there's enough space for more pre-orders, since I still don't know what version should I get.

They overprice videogames in Mexico, but I think I have enough money saved up for the game.

I already have them both preordered. *-* Hopefully my gamestop will do a midnight release (I don't think they have in the past, but I do believe they opened early on pokemon day...).

Let the storm rage on....
The cold never bothered me anyway.

Tbh, I'm losing interest in X/Y because lack of news, so I don't see myself getting the games exactly, since I haven't actually owned a legit copy of the series since gen 2...

But all in all, I would want X in a few years or something, you know, so the original price goes down.

Now that we're only a few months off the release date and more retailers are taking pre orders, have you pre ordered Pokemon X or Y yet?
Do you think there will be any pre order bonuses or promotions closer to the release?
