First the idea of 3D battling.

I think that the game will be fun. I want to play through the story, and I'm excited for the new Pokemon.

Like all Pokémon games, they're fun! Plus a handful of other reasons based on what we've seen so far, although I would still probably buy it regardless of the features.

It's a main series Pokémon game, that's good enough for me.

The new look is enough for me! And I'm going to buy it just because it was new.

This.

Though all the features and new Pokémon definitely increases my anticipation for them, mainly the new mons, every new generation is like opening Christmas presents, you know some things that are in the boxes, but not all of them.

Main reason, it's a new generation.
Other reason, more pokemon.

Think that pretty much explains it.

I buy every main series game, that's about it! I buy them because they're Pokémon. The franchise is proven to be wonderful and I want to play every game out there for Pokémon, so I'd never miss out on such a huge addition!

They're the latest Pokemon games; what do you expect? I always go for the latest Pokemon games. That, and I want to keep up with metagame changes.

I will be the first and only Pokémon game I will ever buy for a game console.

Best answer.

[/thread]

P.S.: Maybe a better idea to ask whether people will get X or Y, and why?

Well, you must. There's no 3DS emulator. The only way to play is on a real 3DS.

Although I think a 3DS emulator is pointless if it can't emulate the 3D screen...

I'll be getting X for various reasons. Xerneas is cooler than Yveltal to me and as a more badass than cute fairy type I'd be really excited to use him, even though I don't use legends online. Also Clauncher. He's perfect. Other than that its probably because my friend is getting Y

There is a 3ds emulator. Type 3Ds emulator on google and you should get one.

I follow gbatemp on a regular basis and believe me, if it existed, it would appear there. There are a lot of hoaxes, including flashcarts that can supposedly play 3DS games, and they're all fake. At most it's a DS flashcart that's compatible with the 3DS, and that's quite difficult with regular Nintendo firmware updates killing all but two flashcart models. And obviously, since a 3DS flashcart doesn't exist, it means the 3DS wasn't hacked yet, and, if the 3DS wasn't hacked yet, there are no 3DS emulators.

As an owner of a 3DS XL I'm more interested in homebrew anyway.

The main reason I'm going to get either X or Y (probably the latter), is so I can continue playing along in the Pokémon franchise. That's all. However, I am also anticipating the new graphics and the 3D effects, and X/Y was the reason I bought my 3DS XL, too.

The main reason was ofc the shift to 3D in terms of graphics, other reasons were the European setting & the new features (Amie/Roller skates/Riding Pokémon/Sitting on benches...etc)
