Titles missing "Version"?
Pokémon X and Y "Versions"?
Is it right to be calling them Pokemon X Version and Pokemon Y version? Unlike previous games Nintendo hasn't used the word "version" when referring to them by name, just calling them Pokemon X and Pokemon Y rather than, to use the most recent example, "Pokemon Black Version 2" and "Pokemon White Version 2". The logos don't contain the word "version" either. I think they should simply be referred to as Pokemon X and Y. EDIT: Ninja'd by Hheebo. Delete if necessary.

- I second this. "Versions" hasn't been mentioned at all, nor are contained in the logos. If "Versions" were in the title, there's usually a habit of saying it every time the game title comes up. It's misleading to list the article as it being called "X and Y Versions" if there really isn't any facts backing that up. --Manaphy1 16:20, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
In this article it states that the new region is likely based off of France but the Generation VI page says it draws inspiration from various points within Europe. The pages should be more consistent and more neutral about the subject. Արիանո 14:50, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
- The Nintendo Direct Trailer begins with Pikachu atop the Eiffel Tower. Unova draws from inspirations outside of the strict real world New York; it's not conflicting to say it's both based on France and draws inspiration from the rest of Europe.
Trivia to be added, I believe...
A bit of trivia to be added:
- These are the first main series games to have letters in the title rather than color names.
- The game titles may be named after the X and Y axes of the Cartesian coordinations. ~~LDEJRuff~~ 10:04, 8 January, 2013 (UTC)
- Given that the Japanese logos clearly have DNA helixes in them, I think it's safe to say that they were going for genetics. Not coordinates. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 15:10, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Based off France?
To suggest the region will 'likely' be based on France seems to be speculation of the sort that the banner of the top forbids, Tokyo also has a structure like the Eiffel Tower. Alexsau1991 (talk) 17:12, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
