X already looks like it's going to be more popular than Y if you look at the number of topics on each board.

I'm going to be one the hipsters with the Y version.

Actually, read the posts and it appears Y Legendary has a slight edge in popularity. Also, Pokemon Gold was a more popular board, but Silver was a more popular game. Same with Black 2 and White 2, I believe.
Personally, I'm guessing that Y Legendary's game will sell more than X Legendary's. I think kids will just find the diabolical bird to look cooler.

I really love the names X and Y. For the first time ever, I'm like seriously intrigued by them. I think we all are. Like since when were we guessing what it might mean? I think Black and White had some deeper meaning, but this is the first time I'm really interested.

Let's see, X and Y could be chromosomes, involving DNA somehow. (There's a DNA symbol in the Japanese artwork logo).

It could also mean axis, like the dimensions. X, Y, and Z make the third dimension so basically 3D.

I think its really clever and cool.

You might be overthinking things. It just looks to be symbolic of the legendary type pokemon exclusive to each game. Look at the titles. The letter X has antlers and the letter Y has tail feathers. But the Japanese title does have a DNA helix... I better get Pokemon Y just in case it turns out to be the manlier game.

I guess the next world map will be in Europe seeing Pikachu in the Eiffel Tower. I was shocked with worldwide released. I can't wait for this one.

Yveltal sounds cool, Xerneas just sounds lame. Oh well. We could always just refer to them as X and Y.

Apparently there's 50 new Pokemon at least. Could be a little more or just around that much.

That's the least amount of new Pokemon we've ever seen in a new Gen...

True but that puts us above 700 or around that many.

Just to put in perspective here, if we take the minimum of 50. That leaves us with 39 already that we don't know, subtracting the 2 legends and the starters and their evolutions.

I don't really know what to think of this.

You know why I like Chespin? He looks like he was gonna be like the next very common and unloved pokemon like Bidoof or Rattata or Patrat. But he was all "NO! I wanna be a Pokemon that matters a lot!" So he got a disguise from Leavanny and snuck himself in as a Grass type.

Quick Thoughts:

Looks awesome, will buy.
Probably getting X because a game called Pokemon X sounds so cool. Pokemon... X!
Yeah, so they're probably named after dimensions because naming them after chromosomes makes so little sense than the fact it's on the 3DS. Also since that Y represents height (bird) and X represents width (huge space deer).
Going with Chespin. Yeah.
Last thing: I can't help but see Froakie as Benjamin Franklin, what with the look of his spectacles and his apparent beard/hair style. Come on, tell me it doesn't at least look a LITTLE like him?
