I haven't pre-ordered my copy yet, but I will be pre-ordering closer to the release. Pokemon games never had pre-order bonuses, but I'm pretty sure there will be a special pokemon event that we can get for around a week or two after release.

    Plenty have had preorder bonuses actually, though not all in North America. I have the Giratina figure from Platinum, in fact.

      I did put money into reserving a copy of both games, if that counts. I did that not for any of the bonuses, but to insure that I can secure them.

      Last time that I bought a game that came out, the retailers said that if I hadn't come early, they wouldn't have sold it to me. This happened when I tried to buy B2 & W2.

      The bonuses usually kind of suck. The coolest ones (here in the US at least) were the little statues. I got my hands on the Giratina, Lugia and Arceus ones.

      I haven't pre-ordered yet, which is odd as I usually do right around the time they announce the games, or as soon as you can pre-order them. Both legendaries look really cool in my book, and I can't seem to pick one over the other. So that alone is making it hard for me to choose which copy. I think as soon as I find out more about the typings of these two and just more about the games in general, I'll go pre-order.

        I don't really see the point of pre-order as my town game stores do not do the pre-order bonuses. if there was bonuses I would defo pre-order it closer to the time of release.

          If was living in the USA/Europe I would have pre-ordered, but since I live in the middle east ordering online will be very expensive, mainly because of the shipment fees.
          I will probably wait till someone travels to the USA/Europe to get me the games & the 3DS, or even better get me a bundle containing the two.

            I will definetly pre-order but I'm not in a huge rush to. There is still 6 and a half months to go.. and need to buy a 3DS first. So I'll wait till Summer when I actually have a job to do all that xD

                If there are any bonuses, then I will surely pre-order both games.

                I haven't pre-ordered yet. I usually wait for more pre-order bonuses to be announced before I make my decision on where I'll pick up the game.

                I'll definitely pre-order, if there's a bonus even better, but i wouldn't really care.
                I'm not sure how to pre-order though. I usually do it in a gamestore, but I'll be
                moving to Spain this August to study/work there, so maybe i'll pre-order online?

                Has anyone tried that already? How soon do you get the game delivered?

                  I don't want to preorder because I hate what preordering does... Even if Pokemon never seems to be corrupted like other companies with preordering. See this...

                  If there is a 3DS Pokemon bundle with X or Y preinstalled on the 3DS, I will get that, as I feel having a Pokemon game on demand without the game card is the best thing ever. I really wish they would put more games as downloadable on the market as well... Not sure how the bundle will connect to your account so that you may download a bundle game later if its deleted or something.

                    I've been pre-ordering Pokemon games since Pearl Version, so I definitely will with X. I'm not going to until I see which store has the best pre-order offer, though.

                    iirc GameStop didn't do anything for Black and White but when I pre-ordered from Toys R Us, I got wall decals, a Reshiram stylus and a Zekrom stylus, a cleaning cloth with the starters on it, and little cases for DS games. I like getting bang for my buck :b

                    If I get a 3DS beforehand, I am so going to preorder it. If I can't I'll just pick one up in store...in a midnight release of course!

                    For those of you who seemed to have waited to get a 3DS for these games, it would be great to see special 3DS XLs for X & Y that have the game bundled with it.

                        If I get a 3DS as a gift, definitely but otherwise, unless I miraculously come up with a lot of money, I'm not getting it, never mind pre-ordering it.

                        I'll pre-order both games in August, hoping to pick them up (GameStop if possible) instead of them being shipped.
                        (why not earlier? i need to buy my tickets for upcoming football games in Seattle)

                          I have preordered and paid off Y version. My girlfriend has preordered and paid off X version.

                          Definitely looking forward to it. I hope they decide to give us pre-order bonuses like they did with 4th gen. A Yveltal and Xerneas figure would be amazing.

                          If the pre-order bonuses are good then I may pre-order, but I'm hoping there'll be a midnight launch at my local GAME as there usually is at the beginning of any Pokemon generation (and sometimes even things like Leaf Green). You're guaranteed cool stuff just for turning up and buying it if that happens.

                            I will pre-order it when I can! They are not available for pre-order here yet but I pre-ordered Black 2 and it was cool! haha

                            To be honest, I don't really have to pre-order either of them in advance. In my area, it's hardly likely that they'll be sold out before the day ends on release day. Although, while I don't have to pre-order them, I would like to do so a month before release day. I don't care for any pre-order bonuses, but I wouldn't mind getting a figurine!

                                I am going to ask for X for my birthday since the release date is a few days before it. I will eventually get Y later when I have finished X. But yeah, I will probably tell my mom to pre-order it so that I get the bonuses.

                                  It'll depend on Pre-Order gifts (which at the moment there are none). I think we're doing a large sale like we did with Pokemon Black 2 and White 2. If there is a sale I may get both from work (one for me and my brother). If I have to work that day I'm totally putting two copies aside for myself after an hour. If I'm off, I'll be clawing at the front door until we open XD

                                  If Gamestop has a good Pre-Order then I'll pre-order my brother's copy there and buy mine with my discount at work~

                                  Why pay full price when I get 10%? XD
