    I find the time shift interesting. I hope they'll bring back time-exclusive encounters (some only out at day or at night), and after hearing Hau'loi City at night, I loved it. I love me some smooth jazz, and hopefully a lot of locations have really cool night themes.

    I'm getting both, for various reasons. Usually I would get one, and my brother the other, but he is abroad. I have preordered moon, and will be getting a digital copy of Sun. I'm going to play through Moon just to play it, but attempt to complete pokedex on Sun.

    I currently plan on getting Sun first, actually - which is a bit different for me since I almost always go with the cool-colored version first. Silver, Sapphire, Diamond, SoulSilver, X, and Alpha Sapphire all fit that pattern, while the only times I deviated from that were FireRed and White.

    I'm just not so sure about the whole difference in day and night for Sun and Moon, and since Sun will be on a traditional clock it will feel a little more natural, even if the Moon cycle would be interesting to play with. However, if Moon happens to get way better version-exclusives, that might change.

    I'll definitely get both eventually though. The only version that I haven't owned is Gold.

    I was planning on Sun from the start and even as leaks came....still sticking with Sun. I've let it 'drop' that I still want to eventually play Moon anyways so there's always a possibility of it showing up later this year. ;o

    I had problems with choosing the version for longest time, but now Lunaala is growing on me. I often choose my version by which box-art legendary looks better, but now both look amazing. If box-art legendaries are both great, then I often choose one with better version-exclusives. However with Sun and Moon no version-exclusive doesn't really catch my eye. So, I am most likely going to get Moon, since Legendaries trailer got me love Lunaala more than Solgaleo.

    I'm getting both. That way, I can start with Popplio on one version, and trade for the other two starters twice on the other (Choose Rowlet, trade it to be with Popplio, start again. Choose Litten, trade it to be with Popplio, start again. Then choose Popplio to start the journey).

    I proposed to my fiancee during a blood moon eclipse and we always go out to the country whenever there is a cool looking moon going to happen (super moons or eclipses) so I had to get moon first.

    Also I offer celestial event breeding in my trade shop although no one has requested any yet. I did some for myself and bred a 6/6 IV Vulpix HA in a dream ball with 4 egg moves and reset my 3DS on the day of a solar eclipse to hatch it on that day, I hatched it in the radiant chamber which is an obscure hatching location. It ended up getting the E4 ribbon because it is the room right before the xy champion but that doesn't bother me too much. For a lunar eclipse pokemon I did teddyursa in a moon ball and reset my cartridge to a lunar eclipse date. He came out 6/6 IV also and I hatched him in the dark abyss or whatever the dark cave is in XY.

    Long story short I've always enjoyed hatching pokemon on certain days like lunar eclipses and solar eclipses so I was very happy to hear about the themes of the new pokemon games! I definitely lean more towards moon thought so that's what I pre-ordered. The gamestop where I ordered it from is going to have a midnight release party so I will get to make some new friends and do some battling and trading!

    *edit*

    oh yea and I will get physical copies because I like box art.
    My Gamestop is having the same event. They will even be playing old pokémon movies.

    I fully plan on buying the dual pack. I have a 20% off coupon for game stop so it will be even cheaper. Aside from that its value is incredible anyway. And then I don't have to worry about any exclusives.

    I'm getting Sun, I usually play late, so it will be the same experience most of the time. Yup, that final climactic event which includes the one that devours the sun is totally going to happen at midnight realtime.. -.-

    You can just trade for version exclusives.. I usually saw this as a problem until I got Y and people traded me starters and version exclusives without problems. I'm not spending another 40'- if one of the reasons for that are the version exclusives. The only reason I'd ever buy a second version of something is if I want to do multiple runs.

    That'll be the case for me too. I think night usually looks cooler in-game, so it's actually better to pick Sun for me since I too get to play games mostly after dinner. Although I would've picked Sun either way.

    I've been trying to keep myself in the dark a bit about some of the details of Sun and Moon, so until reading this thread I had no idea there was a time shift between the two games! I was planning on getting Moon anyway, but now that I know it'll be night-time during the day, my mind is made up. I love how the Pokemon games look at night, everything's so pretty.

    Definitely playing Sun first.
    No annoying messed up time factor
    Better exclusives, you can catch the cooler Lycanroc in the wild anyways. So the only "exclusive" Moon has I like is Sandslash.... and the Beauty UB

    I have preloaded Moon version. I don't think I'll need to get the other game.

    I'm getting Sun, my partner gets Moon. We might switch last-minute, but either way we'll both have access to all 'mons.

    I'm pretty happy about some details concerning version-exclusives, too.

    I might find myself getting both if I'm able, just for the full experience. Until then, I'm sticking with Moon.

    If I do get both, it will be the first time I had both versions of a generation since Diamond & Pearl.

    I'm definitely getting both, but I'm picking Sun first this Friday since it has more exclusives that I like. Then, my mom's gonna get me Moon for Christmas. Sorry, Lunala! I love you but Sun has more of what I like!

    I'm getting Sun. Midday Lycanroc, Solgaleo, and UB-02 Absorption just look so much cooler than their counterparts.

    I'd begun debating a switch to Moon, due to an older gen exclusive Moon gets that is in my Top Six, but I recently got back in touch with an old friend of mine. We got to talking about gen VII and we'll go pick up our games together. She just texted me that she's switched to Moon, so I'm back on the Sun-train!

    I've preordered Moon - and the reviews so far have left me slightly more hopeful than I was before. I'll give it a shot and see if I like it (though I've heard the lag is pretty bad on the old 3ds so I am a little concerned if it means having to buy a better model), if so, then I'll get Sun at a later date too.

    I preorder both, but since I am a broke college student, I can't actually afford both at the moment. So I'm getting Sun for myself and selling Moon to my friend (we've had this deal worked out for ages, where I buy his copy of Pokémon and he pays me for it, he doesn't like going in GameStop and having people know that he likes Pokémon). But I'm going to ask for Moon for Christmas.
