Pokemon X or Pokemon Y.

#1Justice98405Posted 8/13/2013 9:28:46 AM
I've played some of my Pokémon Black, my first in the series, and it's surprisingly fun, so I'll get either X or Y, but I see no reason to get both, ESPECIALLY since I won't have enough time to sink into just one of them, but I'll get one regardless.

So, any compelling reason to get one of them over the other? Is it JUST the one legendary on the cover that is exclusive to each game, or is there more in each game that is NOT in the other?

There's version exclusive Pokemon that aren't found in the other version, but I don't know any because I haven't spoiled myself and I don't plan to, but it doesn't matter at all because you could always trade to get them and use Ditto to breed for more.

Okay, so it basically sounds like that I should just buy the one that has the cooler looking legendary on the cover then...

X appeals to me more personally with the Pokemon on the cover and with the exclusives vs Y's exclusives.

Yeah, the decision between one version and another is basically which legendary appeals to you more. Other dfiferences are so minute that you would have to look a lot for them or just read about them on the internet - it's mainly availability of certain pokemon (but you can still trade).

Gen 5 had a little bit of differences in the storyline and locations (but it was all mostly visual, the purpose and the essence were the very same). Nothing like that was confirmed for X and Y.

Each game will have several version exclusive pokemon. As you probably know, black/white and B2/W2 have several changes beyond that in terms of routes, towns, gym leaders, etc. It's likely that X/Y will have similar differences, but we don't know anything about those yet.

Personally, I think Yyveltal > Xerneas, but the rest of X's exclusives trump Ys, so I'm waiting for more announcements to break the tie.

That's how I've always done it. Y looks cooler to me.

This is not a signature.

Just get the one with the legendary you want most. Most of the other exclusives are either unimportant or can be bred and traded easily.
