If you weren't buying it already, you might be now.

Gen III starter Torchic will be downloadable as part of a special distribution event for the release of Pokémon X and Y.

Starting on October 12 gamers will be able to receive a special Torchic via Wi-Fi as part of an event commemorating the release of the new Pokémon games.

Torchic will arrive in a Cherish Ball as a level 10 Pokémon with a move-set containing: Scratch, Growl, Focus Energy, and Ember. It will also have Speed Boost, an ability which increases a Pokémon’s speed at the end of each turn, Blazikenite, the hold item for Blaziken’s Mega Evolution, and a Premiere Ribbon.

The event will run for three months, until January 15, 2014.

So if I buy Pokemon y can my wife, son and myself all play the same cartridge? In other words is there more than 1 save file on pokemon games or would I have to buy 3 separate cartridges?

Pokemon has never had multiple saves files.

Thanks. I asked because the last/only pokemon I owned was Blue and I can't remember I was like 8. I was hoping I could do that, but I appreciate the info.

Some semicolons in that second to last sentence would've been nice. :)
