I'm getting both! ...I think. Well, maybe. I'm defs making X as my main game tho because X is a much nicer letter than Y (yes, I'm a weirdo).

    I will be getting Pokemon X version because X sounds to be cool and I have always played the first version before the second.

      It's too early for me to say. We dot even know version differences and we've barely had any looks at th legendaries. But I'd have to say X at this point, cause it sounds cooler, and there won't be stupid memes made out of the name.

      I much prefer X to Y for some reason and I prefer Blue to Red so I'm pretty sure I'll be getting X first shortly followed by Y. I still can't get used to the names yet!

        It all depends on the differences between each version and the version exclusives.

        So far I'm leaning towards Pokémon X, simply because I really like the legendary elk/deer Pokémon.

        I'll be getting both, but playing one at a time as my boyfriend plays the opposite version. This is what we did with B/W2 and it worked well :3

        Well sweeties, I'm getting X, for in the words of Bender the Magnificent, "The X makes it sound cool!"

        Seriously though, I might just get both.

        I'm getting both, like I always do, but I'm definitely leaning more towards X for my main game just because I prefer its legendary even though I prefer Red over Blue. Who knows I have plenty of time to change my mind or not.

          X and Y are not the actual Pokemon names, just nicknames, their official names have not been revealed yet.

          With the legendaries being shaped like the letters 'X' and 'Y' I would think otherwise..

            I usually pick whatever color I like better, but that's not an option now, so I'll probably toss a coin when I go to pre-order....

            The starter letters of their names might be "X" and "Y", at least, I think that'd be nice.

            But as to what version I'm going to choose? It's too early to tell, but solely based on the legendaries' design, it's X. I just love the deer more than the bird. But I like 'm both, though. <3

              I really don't care which version I get, they both look phenominal. But in my opinion, version Y's legendary looks way more cooler than X's. But that doesn't mean I'm getting Y, even if I see X, I'm buying it.

                I think I'll go with the X. Overused a letter as it is, I kinda like that.

                Plus swords.

                  Definitley X here. I want to get both so badly, but it's highly likely that I'm going for X here.

                    I usually buy my Pokemon main series games based off if the title and X just sounds better in my opinion. So I'm getting X rather than Y.

                      I think that if I don't get both of them, I'll definitely get Pokemon X because saying the letter "Y" in Spanish is everything but comfortable. So yes, I'd be getting only X because of how they're read in Spanish.

                        From name alone it'll be X.
