    Welcome for one, and second, there's a few people that do, though most of my friends moved to SuMo

    Whats wrong with playing Pokemon X/Y just for the adventure alone? Even if the online for that is low the game itself is fantastic.

    X/y where too easy tbh,I would only sudjest that generation to super novices.Oras is better and sun/moon is just as good.If it's online you want to get into then you should get sun and moon since that's where vgc is,otherwise just play under smogon rules if the game is just a pass time to you.

    why
    don't insult oras like that. it's a much better game than sun/moon, at least oras has an endgame goal that isn't behind a paywall (pokemon bank national dex

    I liked the character development and some new lore with the ultra beasts that sm had.Oras was my childhood but I like to see new things added into the game,and who needs bank when you have pksm.

    I was just playing Pokemon Red. I grew up playing Pokemon games, thus I often find myself playing through them multiple times.

    Despite it being my first Pokemon game, I can't really recommend it to a first timer. I mean, if you're pretty casual and don't really care about challenge, go for it. However, if you despise linearity or hand holding, go for a different game in the series.

    If exploration is your thing, go for RBY or GSC. RSE and DP also have this to an extent.

    If you want a semi-decent story, go for BW or SM.

    XY was intentionally designed for new, casual players. If casual's not your thing, go for something else.

    Considering it's a legit CIA, people who dislike CFW (probably scared of installing, I was for a while) and use FBI via soundhax/homebrew...
    I'd say a handful do, majority will be on SuMo in terms of CFW or people who buy games.

    You can probably find a few loitering around, who play X/Y.
