3DS for sure, for a few reasons. Firstly I want the Therian forms, second my top screen on my DS Lite is screwed up, lastly I do my Challenges mainly on the DS so it will probably be occupied anyways. I will probably be using both for dex completion purposes though since this is the games I aim to catch em all.

My main system is my trusty DS Lite when I get the games. I also have a DS Phat, but I mainly use that for trading Pokemon between games.

I'll be using my good old DS Lite, that's stuck with me for a good 5 years. I can't be bothered to buy a new DS and why would I, honestly mine works perfectly already xD.
And I'm not really the person to buy a new game system for one game tbh xD.
Couldn't agree more! i'm going to stick with my DS lite aswell

I'll play on whichever is charged, lol. I prefer my DS for DS games though because they look blurry on my 3DS.
That's because the 3DS scales them up to fit the fullest dimensions of its screens' resolutions possible.
Hold select while a DS game is being started in a 3DS and it'll display at its normal resolution, although this will appear smaller than on a normal DS due to the pixels being smaller.

I'm gonna be playing Black2 and White2 on my Aqua Blue 3DS c: I don't have a good working DS system, and never had a DSi. Yup, skipped from the Cobalt Blue DS Lite to the Aqua Blue 3DS :J Besides, I like the Pokedex 3D Pro as well as getting the Dream Radar for the Therian formes of Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus. And anyway, I don't have the Cobalt Blue DS Lite anymore because I traded it in for points on my game card to PREORDER Black2 and get KH3D. So it's either play it on a working 3DS or a White, old DS Lite that has a messed up Touch screen.

I will be using my Aqua Blue 3DS, as my black DS Lite's D-pad isn't working and I just feel like letting my white DSi stand there to rot and collect dust until the end of the world. :/

I would probably use my DS Lite if the hinge wasn't broken, just because it's got such better resolution than the 3DS XL, which is like, lol...

I guess I can always play the game in the standard format on 3DS XL, even though it's like 1/3 of the screen.

I'm not sure that I'm going to get Black 2 and White 2 when they come out cos I'm not a person that buys games as soon as they come out. But when I do get it I'll be playing on my DS Lite.

I made a huge leap from the DS to the 3DS as I never really felt the necessity to buy all the improved DSs, the DS was more than good enough for me and I played with it for good 5 years until my little cousin made a little crack in it, I can still play with it but it's no longer as comfortable. I'm going to play Pokemon W2 with my 3DS mainly for the better screen and all
My DS will still be very handy for trading the items/pokes that I might need

I've got my Gold Zelda edition DS Lite that I'll be playing it on. And that's what I hope to keep using, until there's no choice but upgrading to the new system to play the new games.

They are for the DS and so they're compatible on the DSi. They just have extra features on them that require you to play on a 3DS. Such as in order to get the Kami trio's (Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus) new Therian Formes, you need a 3DS cause they're only available in Pokemon Dream Radar, an app you need to download.

Hope that helps. Sorry if that went unanswered.

*sigh* I'm sure I'll be using my same old DSi to play B/W2 but I really want the dream radar feature, and just having a 3DS in general would be nice. I just can't afford a new DS. My brother on the other hand DOES have a 3DS so maybe I can borrow his if I want to do dream radar.

Probably 3DS and my old DS Lite. I like my DS Lite more then my other DS's (3DS, DSi,) mainly because I can play GBA games. I'll probably buy a 3DS XL for the bigger screen though. So yeah I'm gonna play on my DS Lite.

Good ol' original DS. My DS Lite actually broke like a year ago and a friend just recently gave me his, so I can finally play again lol. Glad the games are still backwards compatible.

My DS Lite. It stayed with me for years and doesn't seem like it'll break anytime soon.

I'll be playing on my White DS Lite that's six years old and basically falling apart (no, really, the top screen is held on by a combination of superglue and duct-tape). But, it still works completely fine, and I'm going to buy White 2 while I actually have money left over from my birthday, rather than waiting til I get a 3DS (which probably won't happen for a very long time).

It'll most likely be dependant on whether or not my little brother will let me use his DSi XL, otherwise I'll have to use my 3DS. Though, DS games don't really look nice on the 3DS...

I do have a 3DS XL (that I traded in my launch day 3DS for, with no regrets!) but I'll be using my trusty old DSi.
I really don't like how the DS games look and sound on the 3DS, so... yeah.
