    I dunno... I'm getting fed up of more and more of the content being version or event exclusive.

    Plus there's all the stuff you can't even get unless you have one of the many many previous versions.

    FFS this gen [ok last gen started it] day 1 dlc... AND IT'S ONLY AVAILABLE FOR A CERTAIN PERIOD OF TIME.

    Free or paid for? I remember playing a demo at Expo and spoke to an NPC that went on about paying extra for DLC in some sugar coated manner. Put the 3DS down and walked away.

    EDIT - Actually remembering, it was some other Pokémon spin-off but point is the same.

    From what I've heard it's like the Victini event for B/W. Timed and event only... and free.

    But, other games are doing free for a bit, then a charge.

    Hell yeah! I'll be getting Pokémon X digitally downloaded to my new Limited Edition Yvaltel Red 3DS XL in 3 days, 9 hours, 50 minutes, 50 seconds time.

    Just managed to complete my National PokéDex on Pokémon White 2 last night

    I couldn't even beat the first of the Elite Four or whatever they are called in Black 1. My team kept getting one-shotted.

    There is much more to Pokémon than meets the eye! Most people just write it off as a kid's game but there's plenty in there to engage older minds - especially when battling against other players (PvP) either locally or over the Net. Then theres all kinds of dynamics in training (Effort Values), breeding (Inherited Values), battle tactics (sweep vs stall, power vs defence). Beyond just catching them all, Pokémon is a massive game. TBH I've spent more time on one PKMN game than I have on all the GTA games combined - and I've spent a lot of time playing GTA over the years.

    Ouch, I feel your pain! Make sure all your 'mon are a suitable level (i.e. 5-10 levels above the Elite Four's) where possible always use 'super-effective' moves against them, try and use 'mon in your team which are 'not very effective' against their type attacks. That should see you through. Failing that I could always trade you one of my level 100s - but that is cheating- and it's always much more satisfying when you beat them with 'mon you've trained yourself.

    Thanks! It's something I've been meaning to do for ages before X/Y are released else I'd never get around to it afterwards. Thankfully having completed the Dex on White (1) it wasn't too much hassle trading them across to White 2. The best thing is you get an item in B/W2 called a Shiny Charm once you complete the National Dex which ups the rate at which you can catch/breed Shiny Pokémon (if you like that kinda thing).

    I've been counting down for months!!! But not long now: http://pokemonxycountdown.com/

    One lucky so-and-so from our Pokémon Clan has already got his hands on X/Y, but then he works for GAME.
