Delayed Reaction, Part 3: The Finale

As the title of this blog entry suggests, it continues and finishes the story detailed in my last two entries on the subject of Generation VI of the Pokemon games. I'm sorry to inform you that things are not going as planned. I won't be getting a 3DS with Pokemon X for my birthday...
BECAUSE I JUST BLEW MY CHRISTMAS MONEY AND GOT A 2DS BUNDLED WITH A PRE-INSTALLED DIGITAL COPY OF POKEMON Y FOR $150. WHAT'S UP? THAT'S WHAT'S UP.
It's the day after Christmas, when all the stores put their junk on clearance to say "hah, suckers, we're taking the logical low pricing you'd expect before Christmas to a day that doesn't correspond to the commercialized Christian holiday we know and love." My grandmother told me that anything I got with the money she gave me would count as her present for me, so I decided to get one of those little 2DS bundles with a digital copy of Pokemon X or Y. I was planning on getting X because @Fennel; has Y, but the only bundles my local Toys 'R' Us were carrying came with Y. Oh, well, it's a small price to pay to get a game this close to launch, or at least by my standards! Plus, it was the cheapest option I had, and therefore the best.
So yeah, I have accomplished my goal. After a decade of being generations behind all my friends, I am finally able to say that I'm on the same page as the rest of the world. And what a great time to catch myself up, too! These Generation VI games are deliciously close to the perfect Pokemon game I've been imagining for years, as the rest of this "Delayed Reaction" trilogy will explain. Up until this point, my most recent game had been LeafGreen, but not any more, pal! I'm taking the leap, I'm making the jump into the future. After so many years, I'll finally be able to trade Pokemon with another human for the first time. I'll finally be able to battle with my friends instead of watch them battle each other (I couldn't really watch you guys battle each other, but I'll be able to fight y'all myself, so you get what I mean). Stand back, world, because Jack Pschitt made good on his promise and he is now in with the current crowd.
Of course, I'm pretty slow when it comes to playing video games (and reading, and watching TV shows, and doing anything pretty much), so I won't be on the same level as a lot of you guys for a while still, but when I get there, you'll wish I never got there. I'll be that bad. You see, skipping two generations means that I'll have to get used to a bunch of new things; all this Internet acrobatics, the physical-special split, the Fairy type... and also I'm playing the game in French. So there's that. But right now, I'm rocking a Froakie, a Bunnelby, a Scatterbug, a Zigzagoon, a Pikachu, and an Azurill, and we'll get there eventually, so watch out!
Now gimme yo' digits, y'all, I have no idea how this works. SpotPass? StreetPass? Swapnote? Facebook? I don't friggin' know. Just get me into the "in" crowd with the rest of you guys, I guess. Jack out.
