I'm really trying to get all 649 obtained in my dex for black 2 before the new ones come out.

Anyone have any event only legendaries they'd be willing to trade me and I'd give it right back? Just need the entry. I've gotten a Genesect and a mew but that's it so far.

Type up who you need and your pal pad #. Mine's buried on one of the previous pages so it'll just be easier to look it up and post it again once I'm home.

Timing when we're both available will be dicey this weekend for me.

And remember - gamestop currently has Shiny Palkia that you can easily get.

Not yet - haven't decided which one to get. Neither exclusive Pokemon set looks better than the other.

Both. I got Y, then my girlfriend thought I was mad at her and preordered X and paid for the whole thing.

I was never mad, but now I get two games and I'm double happy.

I preordered Y. I figured it would be the less popular one (I tend to get that one). Plus I like the letter Y for some reason. :)

I'm sure you'll pick Chesspin whichever one you get.

Cool.

Not sure which classic Pokémon I'll pick. Which two starters are you guys getting?

Grass starts for me - always has been - always will be!

Depending on if Chespin's 2nd evolution becomes a dual type, I'll probably dump them in favor someone I like more (and who wouldn't want a Tyrantrum on their team!).

You will also get a classic starter (Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur) a bit after your XY starters. Which of those will you get?

Oh. Sorry didn't think you'd get two grass starters in the same game.

I like the challenge. Of the three starter types, Grass is the hardest to play the game with. Actually it's the hardest of all types...

Grass attacks half damage to 7 other types (more than any other type).
Grass received double damage from 5 other types (Rock ties with it as first).

Chespin for me too. Probably froakie on the other game.

but then I'll get squirtle, and they're doing a torchic distribution, so I'll have all 3 types. I'm counting on my cousin or friend getting fennekin and breeding one for me.

It takes an hour or so but why not just start with all three Gen VI starters?
Start Y with Chespin. Start X with Froakie.
Play both Y & X until you get to a PokeCenter (if precedent remains, it'll be quick).
Trade your Froakie in X for some dud in Y (likely Scatterbugs or Fletchling).
Restart X and get Fennekin. Play until you get to Pokecenter.
Rinse and repeat.

It'll take you less than an hour (which is nothing when the game can last 100+ hours). (Bonus - traded Pokemon gain exp faster)(Bonus 2 - trade a POkevirus'd from an older game at this point too for even more).

If (if) I get both, I'll be doing this for certain (but my true starter will remain Chespin).

yeah I thought about that right after I posted, most likely what I'll do. I probably won't even start X til I beat the e4 on Y though.

So many life altering decisions to make!
