Who in their right mind would decide right now before seeing the version-exclusive Pokemon?
It's rare that version-exclusive Pokémon matter to me. Usually the ones I want on my team are in both versions, and I can always get the exclusives through trading anyway. My friends and I usually just determine which ones we want based on which the others are getting. Like, if one of us things one of the cover art is REALLY cool where we MUST get that one (for example, Palkia is SO SEXY so I had to get Pearl!!) then the others will get the other version.
