If I do get BW2 I'll play it on DS Lite, since I played my other Pokemon games on it, also, the 3DS and DSi don't really appeal to me, it's essentially just more features... =|
I walk on wounds that seldom proves to slow me down. I laugh this constant pain away so you can tell but there it lies under the smile.

Hope that helps. Sorry if that went unanswered.
Ok just 1 more Q then, why didn't the JPN B / W2 games ply in my DS or DSi??

I'll be buying a 3DS XL when I buy Black 2 and White 2 so I'll probably primarily play on that.
Still young but no longer impressionable.

I have to save up for a 3DS seeing as the down button on my DS Lite is broken.

UPDATE: The buttons are working again now. Strange.

Probably my Aqua Blue 3DS. But I might use my DSi XL since it has a better quality on it..

Welp. 3DS if I'm out for those little apps, then the DSi if I want to sneak it outside the house just for school. XD

I chose the 3DS option, but I can imagine myself occasionally playing it on my DS Lite due to the better quality. :>

I'll play the game using my old DS Lite. It still works great, it's a nifty blue color, and I really don't have the cash to buy a 3DS at the moment.

Probably DSLite. I'd play it on my 3DS, but I don't like how the graphics for DS games are slightly stretched. My Black and White versions look terrible on the 3DS.

I use my 3DS, simply because I got used to it now. I still have my DS Lite but I just don't use it anymore.

Both 3DS and DS lite.

Meaning.. whatever is charged at the moment/whatever I take with me/ whatever I feel like at the moment xD

None at the moment, but Mac rules, just saying.

I'll play Black 2 and White 2 on the 3DS, mostly. Since I also do have a DS Lite, I'll be using that whenever I need to make a trade or something. >.>

Likely on my brother's or sister's DS Lite unless I am forced to play it on mine. The hinges on mine are terrible so I try to avoid using it when possible haa.

I'll probably be playing on my DSi since it's the DS I own that's in the best condition. The hinge on my DS Lite is slightly damaged and the touch screen doesn't work too well either. My DS Phat has some slight hinge damage as well but I can't be bothered to look for it's charger. My DSi's L and R buttons aren't working too well with the R button working slightly better. I need to get a new DS soon before they all become unplayable.

I'm playing on my DSi, I have the cash to buy a 3DS right now but I don't play too many Nintendo games besides Pokemon so it's not really worth it in my opinion, at least until the next main stream game comes out then i'll buy it, or just get it for Christmas this year, besides my DSi is in perfect condition.

I will begin on my 3Ds mostly cause I want the *system* to keep track of my playing time (I know strange reason).
Though I might switch to my DS lite whenever I want better quality.

DS Lite for now but I'm thinking about upgrading to a 3DS in the near future.
