"Pokemon X Version" and "Pokemon Y Version"?

Guess the "Version" part got repetitive.

Pokémon X will be a homage to the webcomic.

Y's just along for the ride.

I think it's because of the whole awkwardness of "Black Version 2" and "White Version 2" sounding like "Black: Version 2" and "White: Version 2", which makes them sound like updated rereleases instead of sequels. If they were localized as "Black 2 Version" and "White 2 Version" instead, we might not have had this problem.

... Or maybe Game Freak wanted the version names to be the same worldwide due to the simultaneous worldwide release (barring time zone differences).
