Pokemon X & Y Are Out Now Worldwide, Were You in Line?

pokemon x y nyc launch 2

Pokemon X and Y are out now around the world, making this Pokemon release the first in the series’ history to be a simultaneous worldwide launch.

Apparently, the lines can number in the hundreds, some reports are even bigger than that! You can see some shots of the NYC launch below:

This was the line earlier in the day yesterday, before the midnight launch.

This shot was from later in the night, as the lines and crowds grew. Crazy stuff!

Pokemon X and Y are also available digitally on the eShop, so if you want to avoid the lines, the servers are probably a lot less clogged now that the midnight launch has passed.
