This is the first Generation where I'm purchasing both games. Never have done that before and only traded for version exclusives..but since I already have 2 XL's, why not get both?

Plus, I also like Skrelp more than Clauncher...but I also like Swirlix more than Spritzee..*sigh*

^Because it's an utter waste of money as it's the same freaking game, with only the tiniest of differences.

^Yeah.
But I would also like the option of starting a new game, without erasing my old save file...legally.
Plus, it's only $40. That's nothing, really.

Okay, even assuming that's how you feel, explain why your love for Skrelp (of all Pokemon) is more significant than the love you would have for a legendary?


Well in my case it's simple. I would like to potentially use Skrelp in my team, whereas I don't use Legendary Pokemon.

So for me a regular Pokemon will always trump a Legendary because I might actually want to use them.

I would have to agree with caring more about the regular pokemon available to me than the legedarys. I don't honestly understand why people care about legendarys, other than for "collecting them all" purposes. They can't be used in game for the combat trains or the world tournament. You can't breed them to get the natures/IVs you want. Competitvely, I always felt like using a legendary was just lame (that's an opinion, yes, but I'm sure there's others who feel the same way). So what's the point of the legendary? Use it on other in-game trainers and the elite 4? Making them even easier to beat than it would have been without the stats on steroids legendary pokemon? boooooring.


Someone who understands me!

This is kind of the boat that I'm in. For the first time in ever, I like both version mascots equally so they can't help me make my decision, but right out the gate I'm torn between 2 exclusives.

Right now I do think I'll get Y because I know for a fact a friend of mine is getting X and we can always trade exclusives and I can just breed my own Swirlix. It won't be as fun as catching one myself, but hey, gotta do what you gotta do.

Or it's entirely possible that by the time the games come out they will reveal a Water, Poison, or Fairy type that I may want to use more than Skrelp or Swirlix in which case it would be entirely irrelevant which version I get.

Its really not sarcasm lol. I really feel like I need to catch/hatch my favorites myself. I'm OCD like that...


So trade for a FEMALE Skrelp and breed your own. Problem solved.

Skrelp is a Y exclusive so I HAVE to get Y! SUCH A SHAME! I like Xerneas better than Yveltal. D:


There could be an in-game trade of Clauncher for Skrelp - like what they did in Gen 4 with Lilligant and Whimsicott... That way you can still get it in X.

Or just GTS it...
