Now that the box arts have been revealed, we now know who the cover legendary Pokémon are. We may not know the version exclusives yet but so far which version are you getting?

I'm probably getting both just because I tend to get both versions of the main games.

Edit: I'm getting neither, games look rushed and there's no national dex.

I plan on getting Shield Version, for no other reason at this point than that I find Zamazenta more appealing than Zacian.

I don't have a Switch atm, but if I could get any of the games, I would get the sword doggo version.

Personally, I'm waiting to see what the version exclusives are. I slightly lean towards Sword because I think a legendary of just a dog holding a sword is hilarious and because I like the blue color scheme more, but I could easily be swayed the other way.

Leaning toward Shield at the moment but won't be 100% sure until more is revealed

Unsure, probably Shield because why not.

Probably Sword. I'm not a huge fan of the mane of Shield legend.

I'm heavily leaning towards Shield, unless version exclusives change my mind. I like the Shield Pokemon more than the Sword one. I'd like to get both version at some point, but I'll probably get Shield first.

I like Zacian more than Zamazenta, so I'm most likely going to go with Sword.

Probably will buy both, but my first adventure will be through Sheild. Because Zamazenta is cool.

Dragonite, usually
Tentative vote for Sword, but mainly because swords are cool instead of any well-though-out reason.

If this was on the 3/DS still my sister'd probably get one and I'd get the opposite, whatever that happens to be, but I dunno how that's going to work on a home console or if there's even going to be a point to getting bother versions or not.

Way to early for me to decide. Usually it was possible to make an in between decision based purely on the legendaries but these 2 are hard for me. Not because I like them both. The opposite is true.

I decided on starting with Sword so I preordered and fully paid for it yesterday after dinner. Now I am all set for Nov. 15! I will get Sheild as well but not until I have beaten Sword and I am ready for it.

I’m currently leaning toward Sword. Based on the exclusives we know, I prefer Zacian as the mascot and Bea as a gym leader (who the HECK was the edgy person who came up with Allister???). I’m neutral toward the currently revealed Pokémon exclusives.

Undecided, but slowly leaning Shield. But I'm waiting to see the full list of version exclusives, first.

I'm going to get Sword. I've always (without intending until now) gotten the blue/gray games for new generations, so this is no different! :P

The Sword exclusive gym leader (forgot her name) made me consider switching, but Sirfetch’d sealed the deal. I need that glorious bird on my team.
