Is it safe to assume X is more popular because most of you prefer the deer?

It's just that usually Red is more popular and I found the Y legendary much better looking but IDK maybe there are other legitimate reasons why this board is more popular. I always choose based on the exclusives to each version.

the letter X automatically makes anything cool. duh.

I honestly think it is just the fact that it's X and Y. X being first.
Nothing to do with what game people like more.

I play through all of the pokemon games with my girlfriend. We choose the opposite versions and trade. Obviously, we're choosing that games that fit our respective gender chromosomes.

Pokemon X just sounds cooler to me than Pokemon Y

Although...maybe I should consider getting both versions.

Pretty much all polls have had the love for the deer and bird nearly equal, the truth of the matter is X is more popular a board because it's first. The first version is always the most popular board, frankly I still don't get why they split the boards for the two versions anyway since there is hardly enough difference to qualify them duo game sets as two different games. Seems to me like the site in general benefit from just fusing the boards as one thing.

As with every gen, it's just that it's the "first" game. Red, Gold, Ruby, FireRed, Diamond, HeartGold, Black, and Black 2 were all the most popular games. Stands to reason that X will be too.
