    Both! Got them for €30 each pre ordered ages ago, same price as one AAA console title. So, quite chuffed :-D

    There's another one coming out? It's amazing that what's essentially a badger baiting sim has endured for so long.

    I was thinking about going for Y, not for any particular reason other than the legendary seems more dynamic.

    Get with the programme!! If it's cartoony then it isn't real violence.

    Besides, the fact that Pokémon games are some of the best RPGs around should be recognised by more people IMO.

    Going with Y the legendary looks far more rad plus I cant say no to a dragon type, I will end up buying the X as well at some point. Ive preordered it with GAME and its the digital copy hope they're not slow with the code(it does say on the website code ready for launch). Has anyone else preordered this way?

    I wasn't fussy, but since it looks like there are 3 Xs to 4 Ys on this page, I'll go X to balance it out. Also, things with X are cool. X-Wing, X-Ray Vision, the X-Men, Xylophones and anything that's Xtreme. I probably won't get it for launch but I will eventually.

    Is this out on a Saturday? Amazon has it as October 12th. Seems like a weird day, even for a global release. Is that the standard Japanese day or something?

    Ya it is a saturday, rather strange. I'm 20 years old and that's going to be the longest friday night of my life. I do love the excitement that only gaming brings to my life.

    Also, should I get the red or blue special edition 3ds xl? Decided to upgrade and wondering which is nicer? I can't choose.

    Ooh, check you out Mr Moneybags, pre-ordering both and buying a new console :p

    I prefer the red myself. I think the outlines of the 2 legendaries pops out more vividly against the red background. Might be easy to miss the low power light if it's blending in with the console though, but it flashes at super low with is hard to miss.

    I think I'll be buying X as it sounds like it has more conviction. Y sounds too much like a question.

    Probably buy it at the end of the month now as I've already spent far too much on gaming related stuff and I'm getting Windwaker on Friday.

    I get through games at a slower clip on the 3ds due to it being a travel companion and my backlog is already insane on it.

    Haha, I counted up a container full of change recently and sorted it into bank bags. 170 quid I didn't know I had, so I thought why not :-P

    Red eh? I love the design so obviously the more prominent one is a good choice, cheers.

    I was about to say that my penny jar would have to be massive to fit Ł170 in, then I realised that it is actually a miniature Tardis. Hmm.

    I've pre-ordered Y. I am starting to regret this after seeing Mega Charizard X

    Maybe Y will get a crazily amazing version of one of the others?

    I had no idea what Mega Charizard was as I've tried to not learn too much, but the Mega Evolutions look awesome! Some are cooler than others, but it's definitely nice to have more room to evolve a Pokemon, especially those we look on fondly such as the Blue/Red starters.

    There's a few images on Bulbapedia, though obviously don't look if you want to go in fresh.

    Bloody hell, Garchomp and Lucario get extra evolutions too?

    Why not go and give Gyrados one.

    I'm out of the loop on the old Pokemon stuff, does anyone have a handy link as to what makes this game so great or why I really, really need to have this in my 3DS? Just looking for something new for my 3DS and wondering if this might hit the spot.

    Well I bought W101 because you told me to, so I'm telling you to buy Pokemon. So there.

    As much as a lot stays the same, they're still solid RPGs with well paced, decent sized stories to play through and plenty of choice when it comes to team composition. Pokemon X/Y seems to have taken this flexibility further, with more ways to train your Pokemon, more paths to evolve them, new Pokemon types (like Fairy) and just little bits of customisation.

    The Bulbapedia Entry is a good place to check for links to all the new stuff. I've only just started reading it all myself, but it does look like the best version yet :)

    So it's pretty much a good quality JRPG collecting monsters then beating up other monsters?

    Anyone care to hazard a guess as to what happens when a shiny pokemon mega evolves?

    @TheMayorOfJugs Probably nothing. Maybe they'll looks slightly differently still but I'd guess at not even that.

    I pre-ordered X the other day from ShopTo and I'm actually starting to get pretty excited for it now. Shouldn't we start to see some reviews soon? Maybe either tomorrow or Monday.

    Historically the difficulty level hasn't been that high in the single player story, although Pokemon Black did seem far harder than previous games, particularly at the start. I'll be going for Y, myself.
