the reason pokemon x is more popular than y is simple

#1Retroxgamer0Posted 1/9/2013 12:54:00 AM
cause it sounds too much like "pokemon...why?" like..why did you buy this version? but on the other hand x marks the spot. it just sounds better to say hey i have Pokemon X....instead of hey i have Pokemon Y(?) ....pokemon, why? ugh it just sounds stupid IMO..thats my reasoning anyways. it might sound childish but i just dont like the name and thats the only reason for my going X lol. do you have a more solid reason? because pokemon Y will def be the lesser owned one....no doubt.....

The "second" version is always the less popular one for some reason.

The second versions also always have my favorite Pokemon on them...

was pokemon blue less popular than red? because that was the "second" version and im pretty sure blue outsold red. i may be wrong however.

Pokémon Gold: 7.15 million approximately
Pokémon Silver: 7.36 million approximately

see that? silver outsold gold as well, the second version isnt always "less popular" afterall.

I seem to have a history of buying the 2nd version.
Sapphire
Pearl
White 1 and 2

Never got any of the Gen 1/2 remakes.

I stand corrected, but I DID start with 3rd gen. Perhaps that's when the trend started? I'm pretty sure Sapphire, Pearl and White were less popular...

Pokemon X is more popular because people want to fight Sigma at the end.

I should go to a board where people discuss things I hate, so I can complain about them. Please take me seriously!
