I'll do my traditional march on the Sunday October release date morning to my local K-mart.
I am actually torn about what game to get and which protagonist to go with + which starter to choose. I do my official playthrus from the perspective of the protagonist, so I use their official name. And I am not sure which game goes with which protagonist. In gen 4 it is made simple, as Pearl goes with Dawn, which who I named her after, and she choose Piplup which is what I did for Pearl.
Now in gen 6, what do I do? Pick X and pick the male or female protagonist? X associates with the X chromosome so I go with the girl? And give her the feminine fox starter? But then "X" is blue, so should I pick the male character? In the past I gave the MALE protagonist the fire starter, can't do that here, because it is a feminine fox. So many factors play in to what to do. T
Then there is more. Official teams for an official playthrough. All things considered, I intend to play at first in a practice playthru, then migrate parents to breed strong teams, while seeing what gen 6 has to offer in terms of Pokemon. I never use past gen pokemon on my teams, so naturally I will need to see if the future holds ways that we can even transfer gen 5 pokemon to gen 6. SO much to consider. So for now, TBA.
I shook hands with the new Pope. I am enlightenment. I am also the only true Pokemon fan.
