    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

      I pre-ordered X at Best Buy and Y at EB Games. (It was available at bestbuy before eb)

        I still have to buy a 3ds before I make the decision lol. I was thinking of getting both games but I'm not sure yet. I love to play both games where you have exclusive Pokemon and just gives you variations to your teams.

          I'm just going to march into the nearest JB HI FI store, purchase both X & Y (on release day), then run home to play them! :P ... I've never felt so hyped for a Pokemon game since Ruby...

            How and when I plan on getting X or Y.

            It took me all night to come up with such a devilish plan. Dreams of Chespin Fenniken and Froakie danced all night long in my head. That is when my eyes opened and I shot out of bed. I was getting Pokemon x or y even if I am alive or dead. The plan was simple I say. I still cant even stop smiling up till this day! Oh what a plan it was. Such a devilish plan. Soon Pokemon x or Y will be in my hands.

            My plan you ask? My plan indeed is as simple as can be. The night before you see you see while all you little good kids sleep and smile with glee! I will stake the truck to my local Gamestop. For Free For Free I can see the whole truck of Pokemon x or y for me! That is with my deliberate scheme! Take the truck hostage for friends and family. In the end Pokemon x and Pokemon Y will be all for me! Then I woke up and realized it was all just a dream within a dream.

            For real though. I have a job. Get my $600 Paycheck this Friday! More than enough.

              I'll probably just use the same way I did with Black 2 - download a 3DS emulator and grab the game in the torrents!
              I would love to grab it for 3DS, not for PC, but I don't think you can buy them both in Eastern Europe.

                Only problem is there is no 3DS emulator right now.

                  It will probably come out until October.
                  If it won't, then screw it, I will forget everything I knew about X and Y.

                  I've actually put a £5 deposit in at GAME to ensure they will reserve me a copy on the day, just in case there's a sudden sell out of the games which is likely given the amount of people wanting them.

                    I haven't yet, but I do plan on pre-ordering Pokemon X from GameStop. c: I plan on getting Y too, but probably not on the same day, because I am sadly a broke person. x3 So Y I'll probably buy later on, probably used. xP

                      I saw pre-order cards for them at Target, so I grabbed one of each. I'll get them at some point during release day. :D

                      I never really trade-in any games, so it'll be pretty much the same thing when it comes to getting Pokémon X and Y. I've got both Pokémon X and Pokémon Y pre-ordered anyways, so I'll be getting it right on it's release date once it's revealed during the E3 Nintendo Direct next week.

                      And here's the thing: even though Nintendo and TPC did say "Worldwide October 2013", but I'm sure they meant it's going to be separate release dates within the same month. :P

                          I do not have a 3DS yet. I am going to see if they will have a combo pack with the game and a 3DS and buy it then most likely. Other wise, I plan to get it the same day I get a 3ds.

                            I'll buy it the weekend after it comes out. I think there has been a trend in the UK (where I live) where it has been released on a Friday, so there is only one day until the Saturday. But it's a worldwide release so perhaps it will be different. I also have not bothered buying a 3DS yet, as the only reason I'm buying one is for the new Pokemon games. No other games interest me on the system.

                              Pre-ordered both. Plan to be there five hours before Game Stop opens.

                                I preordered and paid for both in full. I may also get another copy to give to my younger brother for Christmas. I preordered using birthday money.

                                I guess it's going to be another early wake up on the day of the release, I remember picking up Black & White from GAME in my town at around 10AM.

                                I think I'll do it the old-school way, and just walk into a store when the game makes it to the stores around here. I don't have much hope for the game being on the eShop in the first place, so I guess I'll have to make do with that. Kind of annoying, to be honest.

                                  On my birthday. I won't preorder because, well... too hard and I know it's coming. I am weird, so don't question me. xD
