Are the games even installed on them? Or is it just the console by itself.

 

Either way, definitely in for the red one. Doubt I'll have enough for both, though it doesnt annoy me since they are the same design, just different colors

I'd be willing to bet they're not installed if they're releasing on the 27th.

Thought that would be the case, would have been cool though.

 

Just wondering if these will end up being as rare as the Pikachu and Animal Crossing ones, or if they will be printing more this time around.

I bet these wont be as rare. But who even knows. I personally feel they look a little boring so I will be sitting them out, especially with the Zelda Wii U coming out.

Would be awesome if they coincided with deals like the Pikachu one did. Hope they arent exclusive to just one place though, I'd prefer to order at Best Buy if I could.

since bestbuy is taking orders for the wind walker wii-u bundle, there is a good chance they might have this. I would just preorder at gamestop, to be safe.

The bundle is going to be $199.

 

More info about X & Y was also released. Like how you're going to get pick between two sets of starter Pokemon. While having the option to pick a Chespin, Fennekin or Froakie from a friend in the game. The new Pokémon Professor will also offer you the choice of a Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle.

 

Charizard, Blastoise, and Venasaur all have new Mega Evolutions as well:

So, Charizard becomes more Dragon-like, Venusaur gets an extra flower, and Blastoise goes absolutely overkill. Nice to see my favorite Pokemon ever gets the better evolution.

You call that overkill? I went in expecting Blastoise to end up like Heavyarms Custom. Instead, he just turned into a tank.

Oh man Blastoise looks cool haha. I'll be going with the original starters, they've always been my favorite =P. 

 

edit: you get the kanto starters later on. even better =D

so if you buy it at launch you could get Torchic (whenever/however they distribute it), a Kalos starter, and a Kanto starter  :hot:

Honestly, I would rather have Mudkip. Only Starter of any generation I never got.

The second evo for starters has been shown.. I'm liking the frog and fox ones.. chespin is bit odd, but who knows maybe third evo be better.

Some thinking oh no the fire is bipedal= fighter, but this one looks like it could be fire/psychic at third evo..

It looks more mystical like the stick in tail could be a wand? I dunno. I'm going for the fox or frog..

Fox on Y version and frog for X version. hehe

Now that I seen the second evos I'm happy so far just know about mewtwo thing, eevee and starters. I'll stay off pokemon sites now.

Not sure how I feel about a second MegaEvolution for Mewtwo.

Though I can see Freeze Skin being a sought-after ability. Turning a fully powered up Return into an Ice-type attack? Awesome!

And a Dragon Fossil Pokemon? Cool.

EDIT: Some typing news:

Offensively, Fairy type is strong against Fighting, Dark and Dragon; and not very effective against Steel, Poison and Fire. Defensively, Fairy is weak to Poison and Steel; resists Bug, Fighting and Dark; and is immune to Dragon.

Also, Steel no longer resists Dark- and Ghost-type moves.

That makes the few poison pokemon that much more powerful. Also, MegaGarchomp is awesome.

Some of these new pokemon look pretty cool. I can't wait to see Chespin's final evolution. He pretty much just got fat in his first evolution haha.

Does anyone know how StreetPass works if you have both Pokemon x and y and play them on the same console and set them both up for StreetPass, I was just wondering if they would conflict with one another. Or would it be better for me to just set one up for StreetPass, because I plan on buying and playing both games.

They would probably both Tag the same person. They are different games, after all.

MegaGarchomp is so dumb. He really didn't need that form. :l It looks awesome, but with people regularly running Tyranitar, almost every team is going to have both of them now because of the Mega's ability.

It was confirmed that every fully evolved Pokemon can MegaEvolve. I am curious how it will be used on crappy non-evolvers like Dunsparce, Quilfish, and Luvdisc.

Surprise announcement this coming Monday at 8 am PDT - http://bulbanews.bul...ent_this_Monday

The interesting thing is that this is NA-only. Anything game-related will be announced from Japan, any pre-order bonuses would be announced by the retailer, a new game wouldn't be announced so soon to X/Y, and the Genesect movie has already been announced for NA.

Please don't disappoint TPC...

*sigh* I should have known better.

EDIT: I find it amusing that Emerald was knocked off the Adventures wallpaper.

Also, the Season 1 ringtone is lazy as hell. They just used the first half of the TV version, sound effects and all.

the alerts are pretty cool. Used the squirtle alert as a notification and it scared the heck out of my 2 months old.
