Resident Evil Revelations is proof of how much data the Graphics can take up, at 3.15GB. So yeah, most of it is probably the graphics.

Nothing too surprising, since this is Pokemon we're talking about. The majority of it is obviously graphics and animations since code doesn't take up much space at all, and this is coming from someone who programs frequently. Nevertheless, 1.7 is a good size compared to other 3DS games out there.

What would be surprising to me is if they used the 3DS's limit of 8 Gigabytes, haha(I don't think they will reach up to that number in years, like they did with B2/W2 and the DS's limit). Now that would be a large game! Right now, I'm just hoping for lots of content and gameplay, since that's what really matters to me.

I feel like that is mostly graphics and Audio. I am making a Pokemon Starter Kit for RPG Maker VX Ace and the Spread of memory is 3.47 MB in data, 3.32 GB in Audio, 304 MB in Sprites, 99.5 MB in pre-rendered cut-scenes, and a 2.89 text file containing some universal information. Given my kit does take more memory for audio, but that is only because I have the entire soundtrack for Pokemon BW and BW2 and some other sources in wav format. The official games probably use a compressed format akin to OGG Vorbis.

I'm not really surprised that X/Y are going to be that large (if the rumor is true that is). Just the sheer size of the new graphics engine (Including the region itself, all the Pokémon models, moves, and NPCs) is going to take up a large amount of space, plus add in all the coding for the region. For a handheld game it is large by any standards, so if this ends up being accurate then I'm going to have high hopes for how much we will have in the game.

I wonder how much of this 1.7 GB is for the character and Pokemon models...as the series does tend to have a lot of characters.

I assume the retail and digital versions of the games will be released on October 12th simultaneously, Animal Crossing was available via e-shop on the day it was released in stores so I'd say so.
