It seems that not every retailer is honoring the October 12 street date for the much anticipated Pokémon X and Y, because word has started to spread of a lucky handful of fans getting early copies from their local stores. One person in particular, going by the Instagram name kosthedin, is posting pictures of his progress as he plays.
...well, either that or this is by far the most elaborate hoax yet in what's been an ongoing campaign of fakeouts interspersed with real leaks that the Pokémon fandom has weathered over the last several months.
For those of you who want to believe and are too anxious to wait out the next eleven days for the real thing, you can see his progress at http://instagram.com/kosthedin#. It'd be a good idea to get in soon, too, should this be the real deal and Nintendo brings down the hammer.
