Question I was wondering when should we find out if Gamestop will be having a midnight release for Pokemon X and Pokemon Y?

They won't. --- Meep.

It's unlikely since the target audience's bedtime is way before midnight.
That's what my Gamestop said. And I don't blame them. Pretty sound logic. --- "Gary was here. Ash is a loser!" = Greatest Tramp Stamp Ever Green & Blue Bird, this is Mr. Fabulous, we are a go for cheesin' it. - Bender

I already made a thread about this.
If you have a 24/7 Walmart near you, be there at midnight and ask for them to bring out the game.
I did it for Pokemon Black and White with my friends. No pre-order, just tell them "The game comes out today, can you go see if Pokemon X and Y are in the back?" and they will come out with them. --- Xbox Live Gamertag: SupahJem

GameStop decides on midnight releases based on how many pre-orders they get. If your store has 100 pre-orders, they will probably have a midnight release.

Some will, some won't.
Why don't you check to see if yours will do one or not? --- PSN:DWinchester Tell me who you are and that you're from GFAQs in your message in your request or i won't add you.

When I was at mine last week, they said they needed 3 more preorders to have one, and when I went in today, they had signs everywhere announcing the midnight release. The Gamestop is very close to a college campus, however, so most of their customers would actually be willing to go to it (and 3 of the 4 employees I know there all are getting the game and probably wanted it too). --- Eric in Tellius 0602-9759-0348
