    It worked about as well as can be expected. You can't really account for retailers taking complete and total leave of any common sense and releasing a product a full week early.

    You don't, in this subforum.

    It would be recommended you spend as much time as possible lurking before you make one elsewhere, at that.

    I don't get how it was bad.

    Others getting it early doesn't affect your gameplay. It doesn't slow down your release date.


    Honestly, this worked out quite well. It's nice to have people "I know" across the world all playing and posting pics, learning at once.

    It was bad the fact of some retailers launching it two weeks before release date
    I had to try and avoid all kind of leaks

    It would be nice if everyone would be discovering things yesterday or today.

    Sigh, Amazon says I'll get my copies on Tuesday. Could be Monday still, but Colombus day and all that seems unlikely. Jealous of everybody right now.

    I am glad that I will be able to know where to find all Kalos pokemon and others that I want in the Dex because of the leaks, plus how to increase horde encounters so I can get a Litwick with Shadow-tag. I'm avoiding the threads from now on until I need help with the game.

    This is the first time that the Japanese game and the English game was launched AT THE SAME TIME. (Quite Literately, I think, as I've been told that the Austrailan eShop and Japanese eShop both started selling the game at the same time.)

    Previously, the English games took several month before the new version game out. Black and White was released nearly 6 month before the US versions, Black2 & White2 was about 3 month behind the Japanese games.

    Amazon despatched X on Friday with First Class delivery and it still hasn't arrived. Pretty annoying for us UK folks.

    This is probably a dumb question on my part, but did you contact Nintendo support? I imagine you probably have just figured I'd ask.

    I was going to give it another day before I do. It was the weekend and the people that process orders probably don't work on weekends. Also when I go to the shipping FAQ it says that orders that are shipped via USPS don't get tracking updates so I think that could also be why.

    EDIT: I did just remember today is Columbus Day in the US so the USPS is closed and that's probably why I'm not getting an update.

    Well crap,

    Scheduled Delivery:
    Monday, 10/21/2013, By End of Day


    That's what I get for ordering on a weekend and paying the cheapest shipping possible.

    The launch was fine... almost most if not all big name games tend to get leaked... Went to Gamestop Sat, downloaded my two shiny giratina, got my game and headed home!


    Take a step and I'm on my way, gonna start all over again,.......again.

    I don't know where else to post this so here it goes:

    Has anyone else had problems getting the Official X & Y guide book?

    I only ask because i originally pre-ordered it back in September, its release date was said to be the 11th October (via Amazon UK) and i have just received an email today saying that they have run out of stock and are now telling me i will not be able to receive it from them until October 21st .

    I am now going to cancel the order any buy it somewhere else, also i have just checked play.com and they're saying it was released on October 14th :S.

    Yes, I have too and I live in America. Clearly, it seems to be a case of demand > supply.

    Anyway, I received both games on Oct. 12 (I purchased them in advance). I do wonder whether certain retailers intentionally released these games early to avoid excessively long lines. Any thoughts on that?

    Yeah i agree i think that most online retailers didn't realize how popular the product would be.

    That maybe the case but i personally think it is because that most retailers earn more money when they sell it early, For example allot of shops in London were selling the game for like 60-70 pound to people just so they could get the game a day or two days early.

    I'm going to wait for Pokemon Z(unconfirmed but possible) why I want a game that has both X and Y mega forms not just limited to the game version. Also these games better have a way to catch Lugia and Ho-oh instead of transferring them over threw pokemon bank.

    Waiting for the 21st is so hard

    That's when my 3DS is supposed to get to my house.

    So I attended the launch event in NYC at Nintendo World and the line stretched a couple blocks! I got there early enough in the day with friends to get a good spot and be amongst those that got a launch event wristband to attend the event and purchase the games. I will upload pictures soon or link to my photos on image share or something. But I was pleasantly surprised. At the event, we got all of the pre-order bonuses including the GAME pokeball game case, the Gamestop timeline poster (For those that pre-ordered both games), the Target legendary pins and dogtag necklaces. This makes me wonder if come next month for the Legend of Zelda release for the 3DS, if we'd get some of the Europe exclusives a well (like that ultra cute treasure chest music box).

    But the event was really nice, though it could've been better organized. As many people as there were, when it came time to line of outside of the store for one's turn to purchase (there were color-coded wristbands for certain timeslots, ie. blue/white stripes for midnight, black for 12:30 and so on), it was basically a flash mob to get to the doors and it was like being a sardine in a can. And after my friends and I made our purchases and left, the line for the post- launch event purchasers stretched all the way around the block. It was nice to see how many people turned out for the release.

    And when/if they don't, you'll still probably manage somehow.
