Yep, playing it on the 3DS. Basically bought one to play B2, and for anything else I might buy. I love how crisp it is, even when stretched to fit the screen.

DSi XL all the way. I only use my 3DS XL (I'm a sucker for big screens) for DS games when I'm trading between my own versions as I don't like the blurry picture (or else the small picture if booting the game in native DS resolution), washed out colours and tinnier sound that the 3DS gives you when playing in DS mode.

I play it on both my Nintendo DS Lite and my Nintendo 3DS; but I mostly play it on my 3DS since I feel comfortable playing it there, and I also have the Pokémon Dream Radar app. In order to send the items and Pokémon I got from the Dream Radar, of course I need the game inserted on my 3DS.

Anyways, whereas for the DS Lite, I play it there if I'm recharging my 3DS. The DS Lite has longer battery life, considering I use it at the lowest bright setting and with no sounds. The graphics are also better, since it's not stretched like in the 3DS (I wonder how it looks like if it were in the 3DS XL ).

Playing it on my 3DS as it's the only DS console I own (and most likely will own). I'm fine with the quality. 8D; But that's probably because I've never seen it differently.

Nope don't have a 3DS. I'm playing it on my good old-fashioned special hot rod red Mario Kart DS Phat.

Not mine but this is what it looks like.

Playing BOTH Black & White 2 on DeSmuME and on a Nintendo DS Lite. I prefer DeSmuME because I'm going to start doing VIDEOS in a couple of weeks, so STAY TUNED.

I've just been playing White 2 on my DS Lite. There are very few games that I can think of at the moment that would make me want to upgrade to a 3DS, so I'm probably going to hold off until the main series games are exclusively on the 3DS- especially with my DS Lite in pretty good condition.
So, is it too late to change my answer? Haha. Ended up getting a 3DS XL really cheap a little while back, and converted to playing White 2 on it instead. If I recall, I can't use Dream World because of the switch, but I don't think it's that big of a loss.

3DS XL. I sold my DS lite to pay for it, soooo...

After I've been playing for a while, it doesn't bother me to have 60% of the screen black.

I mainly use my 3DS XL for the latest games. I still have my DS but notice the 3DS offers much nicer image quality and the colors are far more vibrant and bright compared to the older DS.

A plain ol' DS Lite because that's all I have. I'm outdated.

You get the point.

I've bought a 3DS the time it came out and used it since then. Also I like the fact, that I can use wifi with it, since my old DS, well you know why. xD

My DS Lite is back at home, so I can't use it lol but I do play all my games on my shiny Aqua Blue 3DS. Wish it was Pearl Pink, though.

I dislike the stretching-out of the game that occurs when you play it on a 3DS (particularly on the 3DS XL, which is the 3DS I use predominantly), so I play it on the DSi XL, with the advantage of a large display and resolution preservation. So, naturally, the game looks clearer and nicer~

Nope! But I will. Eventually when I properly play through White 2, I'll be playing it on the 3DS. :)

But for B2 it was definitely on the DS, since I only got my 3DS this year.
I'm paired with and in love with Frizy ♥
