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.

I've played at least one game in every generation since red/blue/yellow and I'm definitely picking up Y.
I'll be picking up X at Xmas, most likely (ha). I've played every release except B/W 2.
I'm picking up X simply for the mega charizard
X.....i have a compulsion to go with the more 'blue' version >.>
Neither. While the games look like they are a fresh thing for an old series, I sold my 3DS and plan on getting a Vita. I still love Nintendo deeply, but Pokemon grew old on my after Diamond and Pearl. I didn't feel like it was getting any better than what I was playing. I have played Black and White(1 and 2) still didn't get the feelings I got from gens 1-4. I guess it's just getting old to me. Plus, a little side note, if you can get over 700 of those little bastards and do it all without cheating (Action Replay, Game Genie, etc.), I applauded you sir or madam.
X. Simply because I think that Xerneas looks a lot cooler Yveltal.
Haven't played Pokemon actively (played at a friend's sometimes) since pearl.
I'm getting X and my girlfriend is getting Y. I'm pretty sure there wasn't any real deliberation about it, I like the letter X and she likes the letter Y.
I will be picking up my copy of X in the morning!
Y in 2 hours and 13 minutes
X. I prefer Xerneas and the Megas in X moreso than Y, with the one exception of Mega Manectric (in X) and Mega Houndoom (in Y). Otherwise, Charizard X, Mewtwo X, and Pinsir > Charizard Y, Mewtwo Y, and Heracross.
This has me wishing I bought a 3DS, the other games before this after Sapphire were pretty much the same thing. This on the other hand is bringing a lot to the party and all of it seems awesome.
X, so I can trade with my roommates.
One for me and one for my son. I'll let him pick, but I would like Y. He's currently on punishment, so this is something he has to work for. He'll get it in gear and get rocking soon enough.
I totally would, but I don't have a 3 or 2ds and dont have the money to buy one and the game. Too busy saving up for my Xbone, Xbone accessories and games. Maybe down the road I will. I have been playing Pokemon since Gen 1, the only one I have skipped are Diamond and Pearl, and I would hate to miss this one.
I have been a Pokemon fan since I got my first game, Pokemon Crystal, for my tenth birthday. Ever since then I have played a game from almost every generation except for Black 2/White 2. But, I am very excited for X/Y. I am planning on getting X first, but am thinking about getting Y later as well. These new games look awesome!!!
I am picking up Y just because the legendary on the cover looked cooler to me. I have still not finished Black and Black 2 yet though, so I will probably get back to those after I finish this one.
