X looks brilliant, majestic, confident and strong! I don't understand why people are criticizing its pose; it's so elegant and royal. Definitely fitting for a Mononoke inspiration.

The colours are bright and optimistic, too. I feel happy just looking at it. Yvetal's box art is nice, too, and fits the darker theme I find Yvetal exudes.

Will still be getting X.

    I liked Xernes as a legendary more when I first saw the two, but now after seeing the box art.. I think Y's looks much better.

      I'm still with Y, Yveltal just looks so intimidating and the box looks snazzy

      I think that's slowly how I'm starting to feel about this. Both Legendaries look awesome though. I think the typings will be what decides it for me. Though, I do love Y's boxart focus on the skies, compared to X's on the forests/woods. Gonna be a tough choice, more so than last gen.

        Everything is just making my decision to go with Y that much more secure. Yveltal is amazing, and I like how the colors come together on Y's box. X's is kind of pale, but Y's just stands out more to me. And I like Yveltal more than Xerneas anyhow.

        Though I will always wish that the coloring of the word "Pokemon" could change like it does on the Japanese box art. It was fine in the old days, but now it just looks weird to me. I'll just live with it.

        This too, after a while, the same logo gets tiring after a while, but there's not much we can do about that sadly.

        Now that I can see the foliage in the background I have to say X's looks better now, but I still prefer Y's box art more. Yveltal just way cool in my opinion and the dark clouds on the boxart fits the dark-look it has.I'm still leaning more towards Y for now.

        I like Yveltal better, but i think his box art is not as nice as the one for X.
        Having the Pokemon Logo change like it does in Japan would be awesome, but that will probably never happen for us I'm still thinking of getting both games, so i won't have to make that tough decision

          I might get X because, I like Xerneas a little more. I mean, when I first saw the first trailer I fell in love. Although, Both are amazing! Why is October so far away? haha

            I love both box arts but I love the art for X because of the gracefulness of the legendary!

            After sitting on it longer I think I actually like X's box art better. I think the subtle leave background in the X fits better with Xerneas as a whole in comparison to the clouds on Y's cover. I don't know, I just like how it looks a little better!

              I think it's the symmetry. I reckon that catches humans' attention because it's logical, similar and is overall pleasing on the eyes.

                maybe but im planning on getting y but i think x's boxart looks so much better it comes down to taste really x looks brighter whereas y looks somewhat darker

                While Pokemon X's Boxart does seem rather bland, I'm still sticking with it. It's kind of a shame though, because Y's boxart does look so much better... .___.;; But then again, thinking about it a bit more, the lighter colors make me tolerate Y's more, so yeah. ^^;

                  I'm hoping I can catch both legendaries in each game, so that I can choose my version based upon version-exclusive pokes only & not upon which legendary is cooler :/

                    You can guarantee the legendaries will be version exclusive.
                    I'm choosing the game based on what I know of the story.

                      Shoot my old post, I just learnt it's not good to judge books by their covers... or box arts.

                      I think the problem right now is that, I can't choose between either. Of course, I'm rooting for Xerneas still, but I think I'll take Yveltal since I want to take the second version first. Like it's X & Y so Y is the second one.

                      Considering that, I say that Y's Box Art is cooler.
