Should I get Pokemon Y or GTA 5?

I'm a little tight on money right now. I am a fan of both series, but to tbh I play pokemon mostly for the competitive aspect, which I just go on pokemon showdown. Idk about this, which game do u think would last me longer and get my money's worth?

GTA 5 is something new and fresh. Pokemon is the same tired game over and over.

GTA is more fun.

Since you use Showdown, I say get GTA IV.


I don't think you'll want to hatch eggs, pray for good IVs, and then EV train them, right?

It'll probably take Showdown a month or two to get a simulator up and running which should give you enough time to get 40 dollars. You can then get Pokemon X or Y for the story and then use Showdown for Competitive battling :3

As a fan of both series, I'd say to get Y. You can bide your time playing IV until you make enough to get V

GTA 4 was good, but it lacked that certain feeling I got from san andreas. This 5th one looks very promising and the fact it takes place in Los Santos makes me a happy camper.

GTA5 because pokemon copies are in great abundance. GTA5 sells very quickly and if you want to play it immediately with friends it's best to get it right away.

If this were a first person shooter this topic would be filled with pokemon but it's not so the opinions r gonna be very mixed.

gta5 is great fun imo, is it going to have online?
