Both.
DS games in a 3DS look weird; I think it's the re-sizing of the top and bottom screens (compared to the DSi.)
Though I do use my 3DS at times for the dream radar.

I'm playing on my DS Lite, but it's not a great experience, since my DS Lite keeps having this weird problem with the screen where everything turns white, and I have to fiddle with the top half to make it go away. It usually stays fine like that, but if I bend the top half to a certain point, the screen turns white again. As a result, my DS Lite's screen is always glitchy white when I turn it on.

I'm going to get a 3DS XL pretty soon though, so I'll probably never use my crappy DS Lite again (except now I can finally trade Pokemon between my games, once I get a 3DS).

I have both games and both systems, and usually I have Black 2 in my DS lite and White 2 in my 3DS. It does look a lot better on the DS, though. I also prefer the regular d-pad controls to the circle pad, so I use the d-pad on the 3DS as well.

I do the same thing except I play white 2 on my ds lite and black 2 on my 3ds and I also agree saying that it looks better on the lite.

I never use my DS unless I want to mess around with action replay. I rarely even use my 3DS, but yes, I do play White 2 on my 3DS.

Yeah, I kept my original 3DS for that reason - it's nice to trade my best Pokémon from Black to Black 2 and eventually from Black 2 to White 2 :D

I use my 3DS for my White2 mainly just because it's the only console I can use for any kind of trading/DreamWorld things.
My other option is Lite and it doesn't like WPA2 webs... =(

I played Black 2, about 50 of the 60 hours, on my 3DS. I wish that the games had been for 3DS, but they were still fun on the DS. I c an't wait for a Pokemon game like this to come to the 3DS. I am so excited for one!!

I've been playing Black 2 on my 3DS, since the hinge on my DS Lite is kinda loose and for Wi-Fi.

I'm mainly playing BW2 on my DS (alternating between the original DS and DS lite, depending on which one is easier to get to/has more battery life left). I have a 3DS, but it doesn't keep its charge too long, and at the moment, I prefer to use it for 3DS-exclusive games (and use one of my DS systems for DS games).

So, I'm wondering, do you play B2/W2 on your 3DS? Or you prefer doing it on DS/DSi because of the bad look of the games on 3DS?
I'm actually strongly considering buying a DS Lite, because DS games look really bad on the 3DS screen. I wish Nintendo had forgone 3D in favour of doubling the resolution, because that way DS games would look just as crisp. But, gimmicks sell I guess! I also want a DS Lite because the 3DS's battery life is horrible. The standby is so amazingly bad.

It won't so much be a gimmick when X and Y come out.

The standby time seems to be remedied by turning wireless off, by the way.

Uh, no, it's not going to be less of a gimmick when X and Y come out. There isn't anything in X and Y that needs to be in stereoscopic 3D. The only game I have seen that actually benefits functionally from 3D is Super Mario 3D Land, and that's only in a few areas. Pokemon X and Y aren't going to vindicate Nintendo's penchant for gimmicks in any way.

I always have wireless off unless I want to use the e-shop, and then I turn it off right after. The standby is still pathetic. I can't even leave it on standby overnight without it being dead when I wake up. I could leave my PS Vita on standby for over a month and I could still play a game for an hour when I finally use it again.

on 3DS, because to afford one I had to trade in my beloved DSi XL, but I honestly don't notice the drop in quality much

I first began playing on my DS Lite but since they have introduced X & Y I'm trying to familiarize myself with controls of the 3DS.

I play on my 3DS. It's either my first DS with scratches all over the bottom screen or the clean 3DS.

Also, I don't see how it makes the games look bad, they look just fine.

Play mine on my 3DS XL without the Start + Select trick and although the pixelation can be a little unnerving sometimes... I love the feel of the 3DS XL and how large the spread between your hands and the screen is, perfect sized console no matter what the resolution. Haven't had a real problem with it yet.

I did play Black 2 on the 3DS, it was a bit annoying with the blurriness, but was enough to bear during the game.

Adventures, are sometimes even the simplest things.
