For those of you with a 3DS you will be aware of the Downloadable Content feature allowing you to add extra content to the game such as aesthetic changes.

Do you think there will be DLC for these two games, If so how do you think it will effect them?

I'll hope is just pure aesthetic, not like "buy DLC to unlock Pokemon or Key Item X"
That'll be a load of bull. I don't have problem with cosmetic DLC. Just, stay away from gameplay changing DLC.

3DS games don't simply do aesthetic changes - they mostly have been entirely new areas.

Somehow outside of using it to add new Pokémon (which could be a little bit… annoying) I don't see it really having much in Pokémon. I'd like them to prove me wrong.

There will probably be DLC in the games, but mostly just perk items. Like the poster above me said, having to download essential items in order to complete the game would be utterly ridiculous.

I think if they have DLC it could be a lot like the Dream World additions. New furniture, houses, dolls etc, or even new habitats to find Pokemon in. But that's just me hoping for secret bases to return, lmao.

DLC will be event Pokemon and some new items. I haven't really seen them do much DLC, but with the 3DS, they could give it a go, so you never know.

If it helps though, Iwata has said that Nintendo don't intend to force you to buy DLC for completing the game. It'd be a total drag if you had to buy Pokémon DLC to complete your 'Dex, right?

Bearing in mind that The Pokémon Company isn't explicitly Nintendo.

I think the DLC would be outfits to customize the trainer, and previous pokemon events if you missed out on them.

Oh god no, please no DLC. I hope, really hope, they don't do DLC. But given video games pattern nowadays, it is almost inevitable.

Well in related news, the games will be available as download editions from the eShop as well. (In Japan at least.)

I could see them doing event Pokemon/items as DLC. It wouldn't be the first 3DS game to do it (Fire Emblem Awakening comes to mind). So long as it's free, I'd be okay with it.

hopefully if they do add dlc, it would be a. free and b. something that lets me customize the trainer's appearance. B2W2 was sorely missing trainer customization, especially after the addition of PokeStar Studios and its costumes.

Good Bye Nintendo WiFi, you were fun. (my codes won't work anymore, so.... ya, hit me up on 3DS if you want dem trades.)

It would be cool if they released the WiFi event Pokemon as DLC afterwards, so in case you miss an event, you can later download a DLC (for free or a small price). It really sucks when you buy the game too late and miss an event Pokemon you really wanted to have.

If aesthetic changes are on the agenda then I reckon you might be able to get DLC of new outfits for the players (maybe even seasons based) which would be great in my opinion.

Given that the 3DS has yet to be hacked, it would be safe for GF to add on-cartridge DLC without anyone knowing that Pokemon XY has more DLC content than ever other than event Pokemon or items.

I'd like some event Pokemon. I also have an idea: free DLC that lets you choose one previous region to travel to, with all routes, gyms, etc. accessible, but you can only choose ONE.
I'd choose Hoenn :D

Poké Seals; needs a comeback and needs some legit ones from nintendo and gamefreak
Exclusive event pokemon
Exclusive trainer Battles; like past trainers
What I don't want to see:

Anything that will affect the gameplay majorly like blocking roads, locking gyms, missing out pokemon.

I think if there is any DLC, it will be just customisable thing such as clothing or it will be extra trainers to battle like the E-reader trainers in gen III. Either way, I'll probably end up buying them.

I think they'll have DLC but it'll probably be just event stuff, new skins, extra items.. something like that! It'd be nice if there were more that weren't region-specific!
