There are horror stories going around that people who have bought Pokémon XY have saved in Luminose City while outdoors. This causes the game to break. This is the consequence of a hurried, worldwide release. Pokémon games always launch with glitches, but our Japanese friends have always suffered for us first. Not this time, though. Worldwide train of pain!
Of course, I'm not going to get this game until the game-breaking bugs are addressed and gone. There's a reason why the Gamecube version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is better besides controls: No game-breaking Cannon Room glitch. I don't like the idea of "well just don't save there." What if I inadvertently forget that warning? It's a portable game. Anything could happen. I could be playing right before dinner is ready right next to the Luminose cab, save my game, close it, eat dinner, and come back and find out I'm doomed forever. That's not GOOD.
I've received a LOT of requests (my fellow KoopaTV colleagues and the rest of Koopa Keep, people from Pokémon Online, offline friends, siblings) that I should just get Pokémon X already. Unfortunately, The Pokémon Company International hasn't chosen me to receive a free copy or a free anything. The winner's list is posted here (as of publishing it's not updated with the winners yet, despite the contest ending).
So since I haven't won, that means I'm going to stick to my original plan: I'm not getting Pokémon X until after I'm done playing through Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies. And THAT'S Day 1 for me. I reaffirmed it in the footer of this article, but people still doubt my dedication. This whole game-breaking save glitch just makes me more confident in my decision.
Besides, I need to wait a little bit to get my money replenished. Why not consider donating to KoopaTV? ...Just kidding. (For now.)
