I have yet to play a pokemon game. I got a lot of friends who do and they keep telling me that I need to pick this one up because it has some of the original pokemon in it and many other reasons. Do I need to start at an earlier version or is the new x and y good to start on? Any advice on if I should go ahead and pre order or wait and try a friends copy (given they will actually stop playing the game long enough for me to try it).
Are the two versions really different or are they just different color boxes and titles? Since I'm new to any pokemon stuff I wouldn't know which one is which.
I have been looking for gaming deals and I did see something that could be decent. Estarland has $5 off anything over 30 that ends on Oct 9 i think ?
