Why do people buy two versions of Pokemon games?

1 save per cartridge? That is it for me sometimes. If you want to play the game again, you can't without deleting everyone & everything. Can't let little siblings borrow it. They'll erase your data and then you have to push them in front of that giant RV driving by. :P

My sis normally covers the other game's exclusives for me. I'm getting Y. But if I want to play the game again or something I might get X. Lucky for Nintendo, 3DS games are cheaper then the console games.

Donnel is my # 1 bro. We fist bump, slay some risen, eat some chicken strips, bomb the Valmese and steal sugar from Gaius on a daily basis. Like a Boss. FE:A

Is it just collectors intuition or something?


Pretty much. And what a completionist like myself, does.

Getting both legendaries, easier access to exclusives, farming event pokemon and starters, the ability to play again without erasing save data, etc
Take your pick

I haven't gotten both versions since Gold and silver, my parents got me the GS bundle that had both games, i still have them cus i know they are going to be collectors items.

Im a collector now and able to afford it,

I own all American releases of pokemon so far.
Red, Blue, Yellow
Gold, Silver, Crystal
Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, LeafGreen
Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, SoulSilver

I bought both Black and White 2 because if I ever get bored of the endgame once I beat the elite 4 and do everything, I can just play the other copy and start over so I don't lose anything.

It's Nintendo draining the money from completionists and people with OCD
