Also just remembered it's GE not JE.
Oh, I love to chat with people. And I wonder how the X and Y is going to be.

Im excited for X and Y. Its about time Pokemon went 3D. I like Sylveon, Xerneas, Yveltal, Fennekin and Froakie. I dont like Chespin very much but maybe seeing it's evos will change my mind.

    Personally, I adore the way the games are looking. And I'm absolutely sure that the Pokémon will endear themselves to me after I see them in the anime. And after using them, of course. I get really attached to my teams. :3

    I love the game but hate the section right now. So obnoxious. "Do you think there will be a person saying 'what's the date today' in X&Y????" WHO CARES WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE GAME

    Speculation can sometimes be like that. We dont have much info to really go on. Luckily it seems we're getting a bit more of that soon.

      Honestly I haven't even been in the section. xD; I think it's because I got so spoiled for the entire plot of BW that I never finished it, and I don't want that to happen with XY. also part of that might have had something to do with the fact that the games were awful but w/e

      I post around in there sometimes. Im not very active in the Pokemon sections which is pretty ironic considering I really love Pokemon.

        Absolutely perfect haha.

        I haven't been trusting anything at all and I don't think I will until like a week from now because sometimes it takes a while for things to circulate.

        I don't have a 3DS, but plan on getting one solely to play X and Y versions. I'm not a big fan of the starters, but I'm certainly willing to give it a try.

        Which starters would/will you guys pick?

          I've had a 3DS for quite some time now, and I absolutely can't wait for X and Y!

          As far as starters go, I'd probs go with Fennekin. I dunno why, but I have a thing for fire type Pokemon. <3

            I always knew I'd only ever get a 3DS when Pokémon came out exclusively for it.

            I'm totally getting Froakie. :3 Fennekin just looks really fragile and I never really do well with grass types.

            ...and I say that but I'm playing as Cilan on Black rn and have two of them haha.

            I have a 3DS only a Japanese one and after the disaster that was Gen 5 (I know half the Pokemon in JP and half in English), I don't think I'll be importing X or Y. I'll just wait until I eventually cave and get a North American 3DS to get it. u_u

            Based on the base Pokémon, I'd probably end up with Fennekin but I don't really like foxes so I have high hopes that one of the other two will have a cooler final evolution so I can pick them. :3

              I can totally see where you're coming from, but why not give the starter a try? You might just end up liking it.

                oh gosh yeah I had- still have- the same problem there. I was following Gen V speculation & the anime so I knew most of the Pokémon/towns/people in the first half of the games by their Japanese names and the later ones by English and jeez. I still switch back and forth constantly. Which is why my little brother knows a ton of them by their Japanese names- he kind of has to to know what I'm saying at all. Because if I say it in Japanese there is a high chance that I will completely blank on the English.

                  tbh I tend to remember Japanese names better if I find I can never remember how to spell the English. Like... Fukiyose, Soryu, Hiun, & Sekka are just a hell of a lot easier for me than Mistralton, Opelucid, Castelia, & Icirrus.

                  also I wasn't even aware that we were meant to be getting new official news. are there any clues as to what it might be about? Like... gyms, 'mon, plot, or what?

                    I prefer English names with puns/references I understand 100% and while it wasn't difficult to play through in Japanese, I vastly preferred playing B/W in English when it came out here. :s Pokémon is one of the rare series were attacks and whatnot are actually in Japanese instead of bastardized English so if you want to play in one language and discuss (on the internet or wherever) in another, you have to memorize both sets of vocabulary. I'm not interested in doing that again.

                    On that note, I'm really happy they've been releasing news almost simultaneously this time... it means I can memorize the English name from the get-go instead of bothering with the Japanese name the whole time. It's a bit of a relief.

                      Oooh now I'm wondering about it. I mean if it's just one new 'mon, then which? It would have to be a fairly important one or one they expect to be popular. Or is it just information on Sylveon? Or multiple 'mon like starter evolutions?

                        Then if it's just one, and it's an actual reveal and not just updating information on that Sylveon, then it must be either the Pika-expy of the generation or the crazyawesome cool 'mon a la Lucario/Zoroark. Right?

                        It looked like it was another Eeveelution from what I saw in images. It would make sense, as they always come out in pairs right?

                          Ohhh that could be! Wow I just sort of assumed Sylveon was it bc I figured they'd be announced as a pair?

                          Its going to be on Pokemon Smash and I dunno how they are revealing it elsewhere, I wonder if they will do a Pokemon Direct or just update the website.

                          In past regions, I only knew the Pokémon's japanese names because that's what they were referred to before their english names were released. But now that's not the case.
