Should I just buy Pokemon X right now or wait for Pokemon Z?

I still have to play Heart Gold, Black, and Black 2. By the time I'm done with them however I have a feeling Pokemon Z will be out by the end of this year.

Just buy it now. Z may come out next year...or it could be announced tomorrow...

Z will probably come out Spring/Summer 2015, so you'd get your money out of X if you buy it now

Personally I would by X/Y. That said, you mentioned three games you have yet to play, so there isnt a pressing need for your purchase to happen right away. specially if you have some sort of plan to play it in order.

Also we still have no idea if "z" will be a third version, or a sequel. So waiting may just end up adding another game to your list.

You may end up waiting a few years for Z if something like a RSE sequel is being worked on first. I'd get XY rather than wait for Z (assuming there will be a third version).

As someone who poured hundreds of hours into Y, I'd say buy the inevitable Z. There are plenty of other games to play on 3DS.

It was two years between Ruby/Sapphire and Emerald, and two years between Diamond/Pearl and Platinum. Since there's no new system coming out to rush things like with Black and White I wouldn't expect Z until late 2015.

I would buy X/Y, Z isnt coming out this year.

B/W and B2/W2 are some of the best Pokemon games ever, even better than X & Y imo. I'd recommend playing those first.
