This will be my first Pokemon game

So I am 34 and this will be my first Pokemon purchase. Could someone please explain why I should/would buy X instead of Y or vice versa. Not sure how this works. I know they are the same game but I get access to different Pokemon?

Here's what you do...

Look at the Pokemon on the covers of both games. Decide what one you think looks coolest. Buy that one.

Oh... and the reason why you do that...

The one on the cover is going to be encountered during the main story of the game, and the other one probably isn't going to show up at all.

Yeah the only difference is a few exclusive Pokemon, besides that it's the same game.

True... but that doesn't mean that it's going to happen in this game as well. Would be cool if it did, but I ain't getting my hopes up.

There are probably some more version exclusive pokemon that have yet to be revealed.
