    That is not being old-fashioned, that is being biased. There are tons of incredible games being sold digitally, for the 3DS, PC (Steam), PS3, etc.

    I would hate to lose or damage it and have to go through the trouble of either buying a new game or trying to recover my lost one.
    It is actually easier to lose or damage a tiny and fragile 3DS cartridge than completely damaging a Nintendo gaming system, to the point you would lose your digital games. If the worse happens and your 3DS break, you can call the Nintendo support and they will gladly transfer your games to a new 3DS. I suppose you and everybody else should be able to choose which way suits you and them better, but there is a lot of (annoying) misinformation about digital games in this thread.

    If you have a nice beefy SD card, you should be okay. Mine's 16GB, so I'm good there.

    I'm leaning toward physical, as I like having the actual game in my hands. However, I may DL a second copy for extra storage space if needed...oh, who am I kidding?! It'll be needed! Too may shinies to rescue and spoil. >.<

    Since this thread has somehow turned into a physical v digital copy discussion, I just hope that neither version has any exclusive features over the other. That would be silly, right?

    I`m not preordering, since there`s not a lot of Pokemon fans in Pickering, so I can probably get a copy of Pokemon X at the store.

    I pre-ordered the physical copy. I feel it's more convenient for me if I'm not sticking to one 3DS.

    I pre-ordered the physical cody yesterday, but I plan to get the other version as a downloadable. I couldn't make my mind up which game I wanted more, so I plan to get both.

    I was planning on pre-ordering, but I'm moving soon and I don't know what deliveries like there, so I'm thinking maybe pre-ordering Y and waking up as soon as I can for X and go get it. I know I'm never gonna be one of the first people to have the games, but I do want to have it pretty much as soon as I wake up haha!

    I would defiantly get a physical copy as it just feels better having it in person and being able to hold it. Much like what others said. Would many people download the game as apposed to buying it from the store, though?

    I'm not pre-ordering Pokemon Y. I've never actually have pre ordered a Pokemon game before, does anyone here think it will be a sell out? I'm thinking of buying it a few days after release and I'm hoping it'll be in stock.

    If you preorder a physical copy at one gamestop, and you are out of town/state, does anyone know if you can still pick up your game(s) at one that's out of town? Or is it store dependant.

    I don't think people pre-order Pokemon games because it might get sold out - more so to get the pre-order bonuses that come with it. I know that's what I do.

    I pre-ordered my copies of X and Y on Sunday. I still prefer getting the physical copies since I like just holding the games myself and having a physical collection. Downloadable games are good too and I usually go for that for games that were on older systems that appeal to me, but there aren't enough benefits in getting a downloaded copy of X or Y over the physical copies.

    Physical copies for sure, something about opening the case and seeing my new game snuggled inside makes me feel all giddy inside

    The real question is why not?!
    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.
    Actually I have one for me, one for my hubby and the other for my best friend. We'll all be able to play and help one another out with trading/evolving/sharing starter data ect. and have fun at seeing how each others teams will go. I have X while the boys have Y.

    I'm getting the physical copy for the flexibility in moving/sharing multiple 3DSs.

    Also Eeveeanne, that's the way my GF and I are going. Y for me, since I'm a guy, and she get's X.

    technically everyone has an X... >_>

    *justsayin* im getting a physical copy of Y. im not confident about digital copies of games yet.... plus there's something visceral to me (since rby days) about opening the box and holding that cartridge in your hands.
