X or Y

I'm planning on getting one of the new pokemon games, but I'm unsure of which one. What do you guys think?

Doesn't really matter... which of the front cover Legendaries do you want? And which of the few game exclusive Pokemon do you want? http://au.ign.com/wikis/pokemon-x-y/...on_Differences

Aside from that, same deal, same game with some very minor differences. It's more tradition now to have different versions than anything else now because you'll easily be able to "Catch 'em all!" with the online trading, etc.

I haven't got it yet, but I will be getting Y. I always get the one that goes second in the pairing. Blue, Silver, Sapphire, LeafGreen, Pearl, SoulSilver, White, and now Y.

As Lynk Former mentioned, there aren't many difference except the version exclusives. I have X, so if you end up getting Y and want the version exclusives, feel free to PM me. Always glad to help another LFer out.

Definitely get one of them though, it's a heck of a game.

Lynk Former pretty much said it all. Choose which legendary Pokémon you like better and pick that version. If you can't decide between the two, then look at the version exclusive Pokémon from each and pick the version that has the most that you like.

Or you could just wait and buy Pokémon Z!
Besides Pokémon Black 2/Pokémon White 2, Game Freak has always made an enhanced version of the games in each generation. I'm just guessing of course, but since there is X and Y it seems probable that there will be a Z. It's the only letter left!

Speaking of Pokemon Z, they'll never do it... but I want it to be a Wii U game

Why do you think that?

EDIT: Oh sorry, I thought you were saying that they would never do a Pokémon Z, but you meant they wouldn't put it on the Wii U. It all makes sense now.

I did get Y for Christmas. I've spent 30+ hours on it and I'm not even at the second Gym. I like to take my time.

Then you're in for a long time taking. The gap between the first two gyms is overwhelmingly massive and highly unusual for gym distribution.

That sounds nice to me. I generally spend around 250 hours on a single runthrough of a Pokémon game. I've heard post-game is sparse this go-around, though.

There's next to no post-game. I haven't touched it since I beat the League.

That's a shame.

I like the trading features this generation. You get a lot of trash in the Wonder trade, but it's fun when you get something unusual.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
