    So we might not be affected after all! ...

    It's unknown how this deal will affect the efficiency of the royal mail or it's level of customer service, but what we can say is absolute at this point, is that redundancies are inevitable.

    So yeah depending on where we get our information from, strikes could be likely. It's in the union's best interests to have it's subscribers to do so...

    I just hope they don't, I'll post back when the ballot outcome is announced.
    The games come out on the 12th of October so if they Strike on the 10th it will affect anybody who pre ordered online (which is why I cancelled with amazon and pre ordered with GAME in store last week)

    if they strike you wont get your mail that's the point anything that is to be delivered from October 10th will not come until the strike stops and even after that the post will be all back logged which will take even more time for you to receive your games

    like I said if they don't strike more than half of the workers will be out of work so its in their best interest to do so

    I would suggest to anybody who has purchased online (unless you don't care when you get the game) cancel your order and pre order in store for the peace of mind

    like I said the strike will happen (nobody wants to loose their jobs/or worry about loosing their jobs 2 months before xmas)

    For anyone in the UK who ordered online, Here's an article detailing those online retailers whose orders were unaffected last time RM striked.

    The more i read about this, the more i think they will strike. They say talks are still on going, but then "they" also say talks have deteriorated.

    We'll have to wait and see for an definitive answer, I personally won't be cancelling my order till the 4th at the earliest but I'm not ruling it out.

    I think amazon would've covered your order, as they did with others last time, but this strike lasts longer.

    Amazon couldn't guarantee me that they wouldn't be affected by strike as the way the game is posted is selected by a computer which wont know anything about the strike so if the computer decides before the 10th to send it via royal mail then you will be affected by the strike (this is what amazon themselves said to me)

    Wow, thanks for the heads up.

    I just edited my other post, I'll have to re edit now.

    according to tesco my order is scheduled for deilvery on the 12th, and they'll "endeavour" to get it to me on release date, should any unforseen circumstances alter this they'll get back to me. amazon and tesco use various companies to deliver so as i said before, we'll have to till the 3rd to see if they've bothered to make any changes to the computers systems.

    EDIT: Also, what game is everyone going to class as their main? (classing it as your main usually means you play it first and trade your previous pokemon over to it) I'm considering Y, but if Royal Mail don't go on strike I'll receive X before I go out to buy Y xD

    I'll be getting X as my mate's getting Y - hopefully I can breed and transfer without the sodding hack check getting in the way but I'm screwed for legendaries - may just try and arrange tradebacks as long as I can have at least every non legendary and complete the dex my compulsive collector side won't get too annoyed
    Looking for any Diancie. Any IVs, any nature, cloned a million times. It's for the dex, I'll trade a shiny Dragonair for it.

    I am getting both so I'll flip a coin when I get them. I like all the Pokemon in both versions and will play both and trade them over to the main eventually.

    Why do some people buy both versions :/
    The only difference is like 10 pokemon and mascot.

    And if you want them you can ask for it ere or the gts :/

    At the moment number 10 in double battles of the Netherlands.

    Because of bad WiFi, because we can, because completion, because sentiment, because of collection, because of multiple gender, etc.

    That is kinda GF thing though :L the whole point of 'versions' is shifting twice the amount of games, for very minor differences pretty much- because of people who do buy both, it's kinda fan exploitation me thinks. But alas, people do get both- quite ingenious marketing- s'why GF so rich...

    I wonder when we're going to get an eshop trailer. The games are coming out worldwide but you wouldn't know it with all the Japanese trailers popping up.

    Yes. and lot of us in the past have stored Pokemon in one game and used that game to battle from and play thing like the Froniter or PWT. While the other game we play through the story line again and raise more Pokemon. At least that's why i do it (I know a few others do it for hte same). Pokemon Bank makes thjs semi-Pointless but I'll still keep one around to use for Post Game stuff and the other to play through the story again and again. Does this help you understand it better Barioke.

    I usually do not do this at the game releases, but I might this time!

    I already pre-ordered Y verion. Anyone thinking about getting both games on the same day? I think these games excite me more than Diamond/Pearl or Black/White. I have not been this excited for a pokemon release since Ruby/ Sapphire versions!
    About to do an X Scramble Challenge!!!
    Let me know if you would like to trade or battle!

    Getting Y physical and X digital probably or I may get just both physical since I found a store selliong them for 39 euros each, the Eshop is probably going to be either the same or 45 euros.

    Guys:
    Mail services also make some mistakes so it could arrive after the 8th...right?
    Okay atleast between the 10th and 12th.

    Also: Pokemon centers and Nintendo World New York get it on the 11th.
    So when I'll wake up I'll see the evo's of the starters :P
