Do you think I will be able to obtain a physical copy on the 16th?

I know this is a pretty general question and likely has many different answers, but I'm just asking for a general opinion.
I have a big presentation to make on the 16th (which I will be including a brief Pokemon example in honour of the release of X and Y. I'm using the Eeveelutions to demonstrate divergent evolution hehe) and I think I will be much too distracted if I buy the game on the 12th.

Otherwise I will buy the game on the 12th and summon the willpower of a thousand gods to not play it right away...

Thanks. I just don't know how it will be this time around since Nintendo has clearly been shorting their stock of physical copies on release for games like Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing. But I guess they won't take the risk of losing sales with a release as big as this.

I don't think you'll have any trouble finding the game on the 12th.

I have never, in my life, had trouble buying a Pokémon game when it was released. You know why? Because Nintendo knows that every copy they ship out will sell. They don't have to worry about overstocking, because people will always buy the games.

I don't know if it'll be any on that day, when the new fire emblem came out it took me 2 months to finally get the game at any store, and i'm sure pokemon has the same amount of hype FE:A has so unless you pre-ordered and the store keep it for that long I guess it'll be fine

FE did not ship nearly as many copies pokemon will. Pokemon will be easily found on launch day.

I dunno, Nintendo loves their artificial shortages to push digital sales. Happened with every one of their major releases this year on the 3DS, I wouldn't doubt it happening again.

Regardless, this is why if you have any intention of getting the game at release, just preorder it.

I've had no issues getting any nintendo franchise for the 3ds at launch. Pokemon sells like hotcakes, they would never hurt there sales by hindering shipping numbers. Every single copy they ship will be sold eventually.
