    I was getting it anyway, been playing since Pokemon Blue back in the 90′s. This is a nice bonus :)

    Love the games but despise Ash and the anime. Weird.

    Solid scores, I wonder how well The 2DS will sell over Christmas with this on sale too.

    I must catch the pokemans. All of the pokemans.

    I plumped for Y. X is for losers. Looooooooooooosers.

    You can have a dark flying beast. Or a fairy type rainbow deer.

    I think it’s obvious that Y is the way to go ;)

    I am 31, deadly excited about a new Pokemon game, and not even remotely embarrassed to admit it.

    @12 Well, no. They’re Caucasians and female, so it works a bit better.

    But still…

    I’m not surprised by the separate of X and Y, here. I think Nintendo are pulling shenanigans. It’s more than a bit funny that all of the gents (XY) I’ve seen talking about this are drawn to Y, whilst all of the ladies (XX) seem to be drawn to X.

    Personally, I like ‘em both. It was a tough choice because I liked the iridescent, opalescent rainbow deer as much as I liked the random doombird.

    I’m going to be honest, I was kidding earlier. I’m going with X :)

    Just like the look of Xerneas.

    Good for you for breaking the trend. >_> Though it was an amusing trend because, I swear, it’s ubiquitous.

    IGN true score logic

    if it’s low-it’s fucking fantastic

    if it’s high- it’s fucking overrated and boring
