Will you be picking up Pokemon Sword or Shield?

Personally I'll probably get both just because my girlfriend will play one, but unless there's a disappointing legendary I'll play both eventually.

Edit: added a choice for both!

Pre-orders here likely won't go live until the morning. :[
the problem truly is going to be that at some random point they'll be like "Oh the fan editions have finally been announced" and then I'll have to cancel my current pre-order for the fan one :p

I'm not sure. Both titles sound intriguing and, for the first time, there isn't a title I immediately want to get based off of first impressions alone. I'll need more details like version exclusives and Legendaries before I can decide :X3:

Probably both. After clearing one I get the other.

I'll be buying both for sure. The question is which to start with. It usually depends on legendaries and region exclusives for me. Just as of the look of the logo and the name though, for now I'm going Sword first.

I'll get Sword for sure. It's the blue colored one and I prefer offense over defense.

I don't know about this. I'll need more convincing.

The last decision will depend on the Version-exclusives, but I am likely getting Sword.

I always go with the first version unless there is some reason I just dramatically prefer the title of the second, which has never happened. So Sword.

I am leaning towards Sword at the moment, but all can change depending on the version exclusive and on the legendary.

Depends on the legendary mascot and version exclusives. But for now, maybe Sword.
