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?
Chespin is the best thing, since sliced bread. LOL
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
