    I usually go with the physical copy, but think I'd rather get it from the E-shop at midnight and play it until 6 A.M without leaving the house.

    And now for a funny aside, for some reason I was thinking that this game would be coming out next month. I completely forgot that there was September in between August and October. :/

    I rarely pre-order the games, but I will be getting physical copies regardless.

    I pre ordered 3 hard copies. I just like the feel of the game in my hands. Including the cool box it comes in.

    Because there's only 2 versions, and you can only play one at a time...? Unless of course you want to be able to play with all three starters and have no way of trading to get the other 2.

    You can replay the game without erasing your progress, get 3 of each of the event Pokémon, legendaries and stuff...

    This is the first Generation where I'd think having 3 copies might be justified for some "hardcore" players, the games look just that good.

    As long as you have your serial code, it's possible to for Nintendo to transfer your eShop data from one 3DS to another, so even if your 3DS gets damaged/lost/stolen, you can recover your purchases.

    That said, I'm going physical just so that I can switch my game between 3DSes easily.

    I pre-ordered X a few weeks ago, but the GameStop I ordered it at apparently didn't have the complimentary poster. So I went today to get some Dialgas and they gave me the poster, without checking the computer if I had pre-ordered, which is cool of them. I thought any bonus would be given when I picked the game up, not when I placed the order, so i was quite surprised.

    Hard copy. I pre-ordered from Game Stop. I am not a believer in digital media. I like to own cases, boxes, the whole nine yards. We've got X and Y on pre order and I prefer the cards to any download. That's just how I am.
    Y: COMING SOON
    BLACK: 4213-4161-1545
    SOULSILVER: 3741-1763-4063

    I'm pre-ordering my Y at Walmart. Don't have a Gamestop anywhere nearby. Hoping they have some pre-order bonus, but I doubt it.

    Pre-ordered my X for pick up in store. I also like physical copies. What can I say, I'm a materialistic guy!

    I pre-ordered Pokémon Y yesterday, but I am sure the game will not be in my hands until the 20th, probably, so I am still going to download X at the 12th.

    I dont pre-order any more. The amount of games I have pre-ordered and not gotten until late afternoon/later in the week is upsetting. Last year I just bought black 2 at 9am, barely a soul in the city centre, it wasn't like it was going to sell out. I have the week booked off work for this release! I'd rather not rely on the post to bring me it.
    I'm a girl.

    I call a Squirrel legendary in X and Y, just sayin'.
