all i know so far is each one has one specific legendary pokemon, and each has specific variations of pokemon.

i haven't heard if there are different areas like Black and White had.

It's pretty much the same differences between the other versions: minor storyline adjustments between the two, and a small handful of Pokemon that can't be obtained between one version and the other, to encourage trading. Personally, I think it's kind of archaic and shouldn't be done anymore, but I guess the Japanese don't agree with me.

neither will Nintendo... especially when you can sell to two pokemon games to the fanatics, instead of just one.

Actually, I think you can choose Mewtwo X or Y in both games, considering you need a different item for each and the change is only temporary anyway.
