The quintessential question of all questions when new games are announced. Which version game will you choose?

Will it be X? Y? Both? Neither? You decide, and why?

I tend to get whichever version is the first part of the duo, like Red, Gold, Ruby, etc. So I'll end up getting X more than likely. If version exclusives come up ahead of time and Y has better exclusives from the looks of it maybe it'll change my mind though.

    Well, I'm going to get both, so I won't have to worry about version exclusives, and so that I can fill out the pokedex better!

      All my life i've been picking what version to get depending on the version exclusive pokemon/legendary.
      This time I'll just go ahead and get both, problem solved

        I have to wait until more Version exclusives come out, I love both legendaries equally.

          Y. For me, Ylveltal looks more impressive than all of the Gen IV and Gen V legendaries combined.

          He really does look like a bad*ss!! And Xerneas seems more like a calm, wise pokemon

            I like the letter X but I prefer Y's legendary. I'm leaning towards getting both but if not only X. :)

            I will get both games, but the one which will be my main version will be decided by the version exclusives.

            I do love both Xerneas and Yveltal though.

            I would pick Pokemon X, because of Xerneas.

                I'm getting both, as I always do. And I may even get more copies than just two. Every set of games except FRLG and DPPT I have at least one extra copy. (I have more than one Red, Crystal, Ruby, Emerald, SoulSilver, White, Black2, and White2.) Chances are that I'll end up with multiples of these games too. I guess which one I end up with more of will depend on the version exclusives. Since we saw lots of old Pokemon in the previews, and the even number generations tend to have old Pokemon anyway, I'm hoping to see some of my Hoenn favorites, since Hoenn is my favorite region with my favorite set of Pokemon.

                  I prefer the mystic look of the X, though I like Y as aswel. I'll probably start with the former

                    I was going to say I usually get the second of the two games but that wouldn't be really true.

                    It was: Yellow, Gold, Sapphire, Diamond, White

                    For the first games I got from each generation, so it's more of a mixed bunch. It's too early to say really, it'll depend on the version exclusives (probably the locations because I can always trade for pokemon)

                      For me, there isn't enough information for me to decide which game I'll be picking up. All I know is I'll pick up one of the versions at launch and hopefully my twin bro will pick up the other version like we mostly do.

                        I've actually just came to the conclusion that I'll be getting both games. It'll be easier to complete my project that I've never done before, which is to collect every single Pokemon that there is on my Pokemon Y (which will be my main game) and I can just use Squirtle and Charmander as starters, which I've been doing since the Firered and Leafgreen days, then use Froakie on my Pokemon X version. :)

                        To answer my own question, I'm actually getting both. However, one will belong to me ─ not sure which version I'm getting just yet ─ while the other will be owned by my sister.

                          I vote for Pokemon X. Prefer the letter by its color actually.

                            I really wasn't quite sure, at first... I like both of the cover Pokemon a lot. Xerneas reminds me of Harry Potter for some odd reason - I think it's because it looks kind of like a stag - and Yvetal being a bird-like thing draws me toward it since I have five birds jacking my living space. So I'll probably buy both, since I'm horrible at making decisions (or rather just too lazy to think it through) although I'll start with Y, I think.

                              I'm going to preorder and eventually get the two games. One of them I'll play until I pass the Elite 4 (and hopefully migrate Pokemon from the 5th gen - to trade). Other game play with a different team.

                              Since I never delete my old data, I just buy another copy of the game and play it with a different team. By end of this decade I might end up having 8-copies of each game. X & Y will be the same, once I start the game, I won't delete data/saved game I'll buy a new one.

                                Probably X, because Xerneas kinda reminds me of Dialga. ♥

                                Definitely Y, because Yveltal is by far way better looking than Xerneas.

                                  I should get a part-time job, so I can get both X and Y. Personally, I want Y because the legendary is a demonic Lugia, 'nuff said. However I want to get X as well, in case there are kickass pokemon you can only evolve by trading, or if there are pokemon exclusives. (White had Reuniclus, Braviary and Zekrom. Black had *shudders* Gothitelle, *shudders* Mandibuzz and Reshiram).

                                  Also, I want to try both Xerneas and Yveltal, see which one I like more.
