The lights are on
The real question is, are you picking up Pokémon at all, but pending a positive response to that question, which one?
I went with Y when I had the choice, simply because I liked the Y version of Mewtwo better. It was a pretty shallow decision, and I am curious if yours will be more in-depth.
Also, if you are picking the game up, are you a returning fan who has played every release? A fan who hasn’t played Pokémon in awhile? Or are you taking the Pokémon plunge for the first time? If you’ve never played Pokémon before, either X or Y is a good place to start. Or maybe you are completely uninterested in Pokémon. Tell us why!
Nintendo hasn’t revealed all the differences between the two games, but I am curious your decision making process based on what has been revealed.

This is the first game I'm getting when I get more money. I put what spare money I already have on Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Watch Dogs.
I am going with y I like the legendary better
I am getting Y and I've played every generation.
I'll go with Y, Yveltal looks cooler than Xerneas. I'll miss not getting the X Mega Charizard, but I can live with it.
This is my first time getting a pokemon game since pokemon blue. So I'm going with X cause not only because the legendary pokemon looks elegant but also it's blue.
I have had some interest in the newer Pokemon games but I never really got around to buying them. But this game might just sell the 3DS for me.
I mean, why not?
Or maybe, Y not?
Or maybe Wynaut.
Gonna get X. My original choice was Y, but after some introspection and life-changing hallucinations, I decided that I was tired of my choice of Pokemon game being driven by the "cool-looking pkmn on boxart" factor alone.
X cause Pokemon...
As a fan who has played the games since the series inception (my first game was Pokémon Red FYI) I'm going to be getting into the 6th gen game scene. I'm picking up both copies. Although originally I was going to get Y first and X at a later date. The reason for getting Y first at the time was due to the legendary on the cover. He seemed interesting and thought he was more unique in concept than the fairy type Xerneas who looks a lot like the Forest God from Princess Mononoke. However after the reveal of Mega Charizard X which FINALLY gave one of my favorite Pokémon, and my favorite Pokémon evolution family, the Fire/Dragon typing it so richly deserves.
SO now I'm going to get both because...well I end up buying almost every version in each generation eventually, so why not just go right on and get both from the start this time around.
no money for it atm but eventually i'll get it , planing on going with X version even tho i don't really care for the mega charizard in it cause the mega mewtwo looks better to me in it
I'm picking up Pokemon X tomorrow. It's my first Pokemon game. >.<
I've been a fan since Red/Blue and although I think Pokemon hit its peak with SIlver/Gold, I'm really excited about X/Y. I decided to get X because I like Xerneas, although I happen to like the Y Mewtwo better than the X one, so I'll probably end up getting Y as well later on when it goes on sale (maybe Black Friday weekend, hopefully?)
I'm personally getting both and super pumped for tomorrow and my lord and savior, goomy
i haven't played pokemon for years (after my Wii was stolen, which included my Pokemon ranch, which had all my pokemon... -_-) but i might go back to playing it.
As for which one i'll choose i'll wait until serebii releases the difference between the two games.
Pokemon Y, Because its' legendary actually looks like a Y.
