Pokemon X & Y

Media Monday
Game Review

I am one of those people who has both Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. I wouldn’t have both if it weren’t for my recent hospital stay, but when I needed something to occupy myself I asked for my grandfather to get me Y (I bought X back when the games first came out).

I really love Pokemon, and I think the main advantage of X & Y over the earlier games is the Experience Share, which if I remember correctly is a new feature. Either way, I beat X years ago, but while replaying Y I found myself desperate to get to the point where I was given the experience share so that I would have something to do.

Another great update¬†is character customizations. I’m just ‘girly’ or ‘creative’ enough to love having the chance to dress up my character in all the different outfits that you can buy. Since beating X I’ve bought nearly all the clothes I possibly can and make my character try on some of the craziest combinations.

I also love the Mega Evolutions. I really didn’t play much Pokemon before X & Y came out, but I fell in love with the idea of Mega Evolutions as soon as I realized what it meant. But it certainly adds a new level of excitement and I loved having to find all of the Mega Stones.

Overall the game is just spectacular and the graphics are amazing. I rarely play games in 3D mode because I’m sensitive to such things, but when I do it never fails to impress and make me feel as though I’m living in the game (which is why we play, after all).

X or Y?

This is a hard question for me to answer but I feel as though I should address it because it will be asked. My answer may not satisfy because I’m going to have to say that theres not enough of a difference for me to make a decision. It really depends on what Legendary Pokemon you want, because there are so few other exclusive Pokemon that you shouldn’t make too much of a decision based on them.
