Welcome to my second stint here at the Graveyard Shift! Tonight's a special special night :3 For all of you who are going the downloadable route or the store nearest you is doing a midnight launch. Tonight is the night when we can get our grubby mitts on Pokemon X and/or Y! (Well your mitts might be grubby, mine are fabulous :)

So what starter are you guys going with? I'm personally going with what I usually do on my first play through of these games, going with the water starter! That means, Froakie :) Plus he's a frog ninja!

How about what feature are you most excited about? I think the one that's really cool I read about last night. Supposedly you can register your friends list or a passerby on the bottom screen which you can then tap on their icon to trade/battle/voice chat with them whenever! So cool, and it makes the game seem so much more social. TAY battles here we come! I guess my second choice would be the customizable trainer, which is really neat!

Or last Pokemon question, what pokemon of the ones leaked so far has been your favorite? I gotta say that so far mine's pancham, what an adorable little guy!

Alternative to Pokemon, anybody going to Comic-Con this weekend?

So there you have it, there's my shift for this evening, I'll be sticking around at least until midnight when I grab that awesome awesome Pokemon X. Feel free to talk about anything at all below, be it the topics above, or anything to your heart's content! And Remember, Be Fabulous! Here's the song that's been stuck in my head this week.

The Graveyard shift is not responsible for your late night procrastination, sudden fabulousness, intense need to explore tall grass, fire breath, or the overwhelming sense of ::swoon::
