First point, Gamefreak were one of the first to get the Kit and they have already made a 3DS game using it.

Second Point, there was no official announcement about a Genesect alternate form. It can change to the UFO thing, but the Movies NEVER follow form changes to the T and some even get form changes that do not exist.

Golurk retracts its arms and legs and sprouts rocket looking appendages.

Deoxys can revert back into the gemstone to rest and can freeky switch between its forms.

Kyurem can freely switch between its forms.

Cryogonal is said to have an alternate form that was never shown.

Even though it has been shown to take that UFO form, it was never said that that is an actual form. Its just a way that the Pokemon travels when flying.

All the Pokémon in the game would have to be 3D models, 'cause they had some 3D models in the scenes in HeartGold, SoulSilver, Black, White, Black 2 and White 2. But this time... I'm sure they'd make everything 3D.
Paper Mario is still using flat images for their game. The characters are Paper and look like they can be rendered sprites even though they are rendered images. The 3DS can use Sprite artwork and still keep 3D function.
