If Pokémon X and Y were cancelled, Game Freak will definitely bankrupt. Many fans will give up Pokémon, and Nintendo would lose a lot of financial value.
I would cry so badly I adore the series and I would just feel disappointed and horrible
Well, not really canceled, or receive any kind of complete refinement to the game, but a delay is still possible in my opinion.
Very interestingly, seems almost nobody in here ever heard of the sudden delaying of selling date of Pokemon Gold&Silver back in the old 1998, where GS was then sold like a year later, and the game receive a complete refinement from the story to the map and also to the Pokemon as well. Back at that time, promotion for Gold&Silver was made also quite a lot for just a Gameboy game (Note: originally planned Gold&Silver was not meant for Gameboy Color, but Super Gameboy), not only on game information listed in several magazines, interviews with the staffs were also hold, even demo were playable before the actual selling date. Then just several days right before the originally intended selling date, GF mysteriously announced the delaying of sale of Pokemon Gold&Silver, where the reason behind the delay was not told to the public. Then after a year of delaying without any public notification of the pace of development in between, GF then finally released Gold&Silver, where very interestingly that was like a complete different game, like almost 0% equivalent to the demo playable in a year back then.
Then chance of Pokemon XY experience the same incident as like Gold&Silver was like less than 1% in my opinion, that was because the scale of the GF company and amount of employees inside were different from the old days. But however, I doubt that delaying is not possible. Especially from the time GF reveal a new type and the new Mega Evolution, retcon to some of the past 649 Pokemons, and additional work of developing new Pokemon need to be done. Maybe it is not a lot of work as we imagine, but still, the increasing work load could causes a delaying in the game selling date. But however, I don't expect the selling date to be delaying like a year as like in the old Gold&Silver. The maximum delaying possible will only be a month or so.
But however, if looking at the global scale, where Nintendo announced a global sale of Pokemon XY in several different language version will be hold on the same date, and also that Pokemon XY anime is starting to air on the same date, GF should had receive a high amount of pressure that delaying of selling date is never ever a possible option. So I don't really expect XY game to be cancel or even delay.
But if there is ever such a 0.000000000000001% chance that such bad thing going to happen, then...... well, nothing to me personally. Because I don't even have a 3DS that I can use to play the game.
Why the **** would they even be cancelled?
They wouldn't be cancelled, it's too good a game not to be. :P
If they got cancelled now, then it's a sign they went bankrupt
I would flip shit and be madly disappointed that such a great game that could possibly surpass most people's favorites would be cancelled.
I'd go mad and go postal at gamefreak.
I love to cause terror and fear. It's intoxicating to the mind from the way it can cause living tanks to curl into a fetal position from their greatest terror.

I would cry. No more trainer customization. No more Fletchling, Sylveon, and Tyrunt. No more Pokemon Amie.
Gamefreak would never hear the end of it from me... Well, then again, they don't really have an official forum so they probably wouldn't be able to hear a word from me. =(

Foe GF licks the tears up!
MidnightFennekin used Selfdestruct!
Foe GF laughs uncontrollably!
Pokemon is arguably Nintendo's biggest cash cow after Mario. Nintendo is currently operating at a loss, but X and Y will most likely minimize that loss and boost sales for the 3DS and related systems.
Why would Nintendo ever cancel it? It can't afford not to.
In the event that X or Y are cancelled, I would honestly be disappointed and outraged.
