How was it? What kind of crowd did you see? Was there B.O. going on? Kids with there parents? Was there a long line? ETC ETC

My gamestop didn't had a midnight launch,(probably wouldn't have gone never been to a midnight launch) only an early store opening 9AM.

I didn't have to line up because I wasn't exactly there at 9AM

No B.O. going on

Average Size folks . with average appearances some wearing jeans, pajamas with a beanie. some college students were there. Saw some kids that took the bus to G.S.
No OLDER FOLKS as in 30 and up mainly young adults 20s and up. No girls were there.

There was one kid with their parents he wanted to switch versions or w.e. to Y I believe.

I didn't get the timeline poster because I didn't pre-order both from what I heard the material on the poster is nice.

overall a nice quick experience everyone there really wanted to pick up the new PKMN game, lots of nostalgic talk going on too with the original 151 PKMN :)

thats it..

Well, the only person around was me, because this took place in the middle of the night, in my bedroom, with me constantly opening my 3DS XL to check on the progress of my download. Took hours, but it was worth the wait!

A couple of cool guys, wife came, kept girls away, pissed off female fans who thought designs were improving. I just talked to my friend who came as well.

Randomly bought it at a Supermarket one day before release.
LOL at all the whiners and trolls. They know Vita tv and new model will kill all competition. Festering wounds for the Nintendrones by the gallons. - karissa1

Went to Midnight release of Pokemon XY, it was crowded as hell, the line went all the way to the end of the strip mall, I only waited about 15-20 min in line though, they were moving pretty fast. I talked to the people around me, and some guy took a picture of the back of my hoodie because it was a Attack on Titan hoodie, LOL, and I talked to the manager for awhile, shes going to hook me up with some of the display stuff once they take it down, so over all, it was pretty neat!

Bought it at 9:02 PST, finished downloading at around 10:30.

Nothing crazy happened, except for the fact it stopped at 54% for some time :(

I went to the midnight release at my Gamestop. There was a decent crowd of around 40-50 people. Everyone there was a college student - not even kidding. Some...interesting people were there. I found a good crowd of people though and we had a good time. There was a pokemon stadium 2 tournament which was a blast. Mostly guys, but there were about 8-10 girls there as well. Overall, a good experience, and I got a ton of streetpasses from it.
