    I can't wait! All these new features... just thinking abut them makes me happy. Especially the character customization, it's great that you can actually make your character look different. It's good since in the previous games, everyone looked the same. But now we can have unique designs, I'm hyped! ^^

    It's a shame I won't be getting it on release day and rather probably won't even own a 3DS till next year. It's the broke lyfestyle yo :c

        I'm planning to get both games, since I can't choose between one of them. Pokemon X has Clauncher and Swirlix, who are better than their Y exclusive counterparts IMO. However, I want to choose Froakie as my starter, and its typing may clash with that of Clauncher.

          Oh well, in my case, the October 12th is a very, very long awaited day. I've wanted to have my own game boy with my own Pokémon game, ever since I got in elementary school (2002), during the Poké Mania in my country.
          I did manage to borrow a game boy color with Pokémon Gold, but it wouldn't keep the save files, so I always had to leave it on. Still, it would just turn itself off after some hours, so yeah, I slept in fear of waking up and looking at an empty screen. In that case, I would just cry for 5 minutes and start over and over again (that went on for like a month actually xD).
          Anyway, at that time, my parents supposedly weren't in condition to spend money on games (but it was pretty cheap, so I still don't agree with my parents on that one nowadays), so I kind of was forced to forget about Pokémon, and I did... until I got my first (and current) computer with access to the internet and found out that it was possible to play Pokémon in the pc(that was like 5 years ago)! So, yeah, I did play every single Pokémon game, including a lot of hacks.
          Still, I think you guys understand that playing it alone in your computer isn't nearly as fun and goals like completing the Pokédex or training your Pokémon as best as possible are pretty pointless.
          But why am I now finally getting my own console with my own Pokémon game? Well, my family isn't better on money, it's actually a lot worse, however I've managed to earn quite a lot of money from school (~2100€ in the last 2 years). Almost all of it went to my dentist, but now that I'm 17 I have a bit more authority, enough to keep for myself just the amount of money for a 3DS + Pokémon Y.

          tl;dr While most of you guys have been waiting for the October 12th for 10 months, I've been waiting for it since I was 6, 11 years ago, so yeah, I'm pretty f***ing excited!

          The problem with me getting both X and Y though is that I have a tendency to favor one version over the other, which was why I stopped getting both games when Black/White and Black 2/White 2 came out. But that may change if I have some money and get bored of Y around Christmastime

          I plan on getting Pokémon X on 12th October and then Pokémon Y either on my birthday or Christmas, either way I'll get both of them eventually.

            I never really understood why I would bother getting both versions, so I'm going with Y due to me liking it's exclusives more. Unless there is a huge difference between the two versions, I will wait for a third 'Director's Cut' version.

            My three friends pre-ordered Y for my 20th birthday earlier in September, so I'm pretty damn excited because now I don't have to worry about setting money aside for the release. Can't wait, I'll probably be playing it this time two weeks from now :D

            I hadn't considered getting both, I probably won't though. It'd be handy to store things and stuff/play through the story a couple of times, but I'll settle with Y for now :)

              I'm glad I got my 3ds two years ago, because I knew this day would come sometime lol

              I'm going to start with X, but will inevitably get Y in time

                Seriously, the year went by so fast. I was expecting the wait to be very long, but it flew by quickly.

                I pre-ordered X around 2 or 3 weeks ago. I was waiting until they revealed more version differences, but unlike Black and White, they're pretty much the same. I have planned half of my team, and I'll form the other half as I play:

                -Chespin
                -Helioptile
                -Amaura

                I'm very excited about customization! I just hope we can have tons of options from the start. I was planning to draw all of the new Pokémon, but I only have 17 out of (aprox.) 40...And I don't think I can draw 33 more Pokémon until the release. But I'm happy with the ones I was able to draw!

                I'm happy that X and Y will be released soon, not to mention that I have finally getting a 3DS XL. I hope I can get it soon, even though I'm unsure if I'll buy it when it launches at October 12nd (or even getting it when entering a certain contest somewhere), but still, I can't wait.

                I have a question. What are you guys saying its 11 days til X and Y, but my friends and I are saying its 10 days away. Why are you counting the release day, when in all reality you shouldn't.

                On a side not I can't contain my hype for the games any longer. I just want my Water types.

                I think Japan and Asia are getting X and Y faster due to timezones. Sadly, that means the other side have to wait a little longer...

                  There is 10 days, not counting the remainder of today, or launch day itself.

                  I still wish I didn't have to fork out so much money for a 3DS. Still not sure I can justify the paying that price tag. Sigh.

                      There are a lot of other 3ds exclusive games worth playing, if you're worried about buying one just for this game. Not to mention these certainly wont be the last set of pokemon games on the 3ds.

                      I got mine for $150 a long time ago. I'm not sure what they're running now but at least it's not like buying a whole new console.

                        Don't forget that the 18 you will have Sonic Lost World coming out on both Wii U and 3DS and next month is A Link Between World, so it's best time to buy a 3DS.

                          Preordered Pokemon X and eagerly awaiting it's arrival from Gamestop!

                          The new features are amazing, and I actually sent a letter to the American Pokemon branch thingy on the release of Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, asking if they could put character customization into the games. Lo and behold, my glorious wish came true.

                          I was planning on getting Chespin, because I'd never taken the Grass starter ever, but when they released the first evolution for the starters, I was all like, "No."
                          I'd always picked Fire starter. Charmander, Cyndaquil, Torchic, and Tepig. The only game I didn't pick the Fire starter on was my first game, Diamond, when I picked Piplup. I decided to change it up and get the promising Grass starter this time 'round.

                          And then they just HAD to blow him up like a balloon. Really Gamefreak? Really? And call me strange if you will, I Absol-lutely hate it when a four-legged Pokemon suddenly is bipedal. Or vice-versa. Fennekin's off the list. But Froakie, it just doesn't appeal to me.

                          The new status mechanics are amazing! I always wondered how a Poison type Pokemon could be poisoned. Psychic types confused. The list goes on and on.

                          That's just my opinion anyways...

This is the case though with every generation and my teams always end up being polar opposites from what I expect. However, if I were to make an ideal team from what has been revealed now is would be as followed:

                            -Chespin
                            -Honedge
                            -Swirlix
                            -Pancham
                            -Amaura
                            -Litleo

                            I just love the balance of this team and I adore each and every one of these Pokemon!
                            Same exact team for me but switch out Honedge for Dedenne and Litleo for Squirtle

                            I'm glad I pre-ordered Pokémon X back in May from GAME, now I get the neat pre-order bonus! n__n

                            I've also got my team planned, I'm still uncertain on the sixth member as my decision keeps changing frantically buuut I've got a definite five;

                            Fennekin
                            Fletchling
                            Clauncher
                            Inkay
                            Sylveon
                            Meowstic/New Pokémon.

                              I'm really excited for Pokémon X and Y! But it seems like October 12th is simply taking forever to get here.

                              I can't wait for pokemon X/Y to come out.
                              For the first time I'm getting both on release day.

                              My team so far is:

                              Fennekin
                              Squirtle (mega blastoise ftw!)
                              Amaura
                              Inkay
                              Litleo
                              Sylveon

                                I put in my preorders for both copies yesterday when I found the cards at work. Still can't decide on what I want for my team, though I never stick to my projected team anyway.
