I bought mine back in August 2011. It was not too long after the major price drop so I decided to take advantage. I also knew that a lot of great games would be released in the future and, inevitably, the 6th Gen. of Pokémon would be a 3DS exclusive.

P.S. Blue 3DS uzers rule!!1!1
Not as much as Pikachu 3DS users. Real fans get every piece of memorabilia, no matter how trivial.

I got my 3DS back when the first series was released. I needed a new DS anyhow, and I knew that some day, Pokemon will be moving on to the 3DS. It was only a matter of when.

Haha, I'm too poor to get all the various designs for the 3DS I want. Looks like I'll never be a true fan.

No, I had bought a 3DS abut a year and a half ago. If I didn't have a 3DS yet, I definitely would buy one for X and Y.

It's fine. Half the Pokemon stuff out there is only available in Japan. Don't feel bad. If I followed my own logic, I'm not a true fan either. But I try my hardest.

I got a 3DS as soon as it came out....I kinda regretted it afterwards since it hasn't been until this year that it's really paid off to own a 3DS.

It's partly why I haven't gone for a Wii U yet, I'll probably wait until a few more desirable games come out for it. (like Monolith softs game and Smash Bros) The only desirable game (for me) so far is Pikmin 3...and I'm not getting a console for just one game.

I got a blue 3DS XL last year on my birthday! Living in Australia the colour choice was kind of limited. I wouldn't have gotten it just for Pokemon X & Y though. I probably won't be getting the game at all.

I got an XL for Christmas, methinks. Very worthwhile investment.. can't believe I almost didn't get it because I figured I'd never use the thing.

I got one and I recommend dumping your DS if you can't use Pal Park for some reason... 3DS better in every way.

Got a nice red once already. I knew sooner or later any Pokemon games that they would make would only work on a 3DS; since that's how they roll. I figured I should just get the thing, since I had the money to do so, and wait on the inevitable new Pokemon games!

I genuinely bought a 3DS XL just for X & Y - I'm also playing a few 3DS games and getting into Black 2 too, though.

There is no scheduled price drop. The next one most likely won't happen until the next gen console comes out. So you may be waiting 3 or 4 years after X and Y release. This is pretty much a maximum estimate.


As for myself I got the blue 3DS when they were $250 and enjoyed every moment of it. There was never such thoughts as This isn't worth the money I paid for it...then when the price was cut I got 20 free games making life so much better~

I snatched a Pikachu 3DS when it was released. None of this planned for Pokemon X and Y. I tend to buy the next console as soon as I can since I'm an avid gamer and have to stay on top of what's new in the gaming community. I've held off on the Wii U but really can't much longer, once I get my college tuition sorted away I'm buying the Wii U and the PS4. Don't really plan on getting the Xbox 1 as none of the games appeal to me yet, but I may get one in the near future.

I got mine November of 2011. I'll admit part of me wishes that I had waited some time for the XL to come out, but I've enjoyed every moment of the games I've played since getting it, so that makes up for the lack of a big screen and more sleek looking surface.

Haven't got one yet, & haven't settled on when I'll buy one :/
I can buy it before the games are released or blindly hope for an X/Y themed one to be bought with the games or just try to buy it after X/Y come out & hope its stock lasts

I am planning to go ahead and getting the red 3ds xl. Both of my DS's I have have been red and probably will not break that tradition. I don't really care for the game being installed on the system in a combo pack. I'd rather have the case and everything. I'll admit I never liked the idea of the 3ds until I read the news of X and Y. Now that I am looking at the prices and stuff, I will probably be getting about 5 games including one of the new pokemon games, since there is no real reason for me to get both when I will only have 1 3ds.

I agree with Xander on the price. I don't see it going down until the next generation of the DS comes out. $200 for the XL at the moment, that is usually the price they stay at until a new console comes out. However, Best Buy, at least online, is having a sell at the moment for the XL at the price of a normal 3DS. Not to mention I am use to big screens and I do not think I could go back to a smaller screen. I prefer to pay the extra... $35 to get a bigger screen.

Well, yeah. I got the 3DS XL and will get X and Y for it. It is quite pricey, but it does have a big screen after all. :)

I don't have money for a 3DS, i'll have to play X and Y on an emulator. I hope there won't be many trade evolutions because that would ruin the game for me

There is no 3DS emulator. It's okay that people won't be able to pirate a Pokemon game this time imo. And no offense, but in the past a lot of Pokemon games required buying a new system and only a few people complained when they bought their DS/GBA systems and so on.

Anyway, got my silver XL in August last year. I didn't have a DS before and wanted a system to play B2 and possible future 3ds Pokemon games. Gotta say the system has a huge library of good games.
I'm thinking of buying X as an E shop download because it's much more convenient, but on the other hand the retail version has the game case etc and is most likely cheaper. So I'll probably end up with the retail version

There probably will be a way to play X and Y on an emulator.

And yes you are right, it is better if nobody pirates the game, but i have no other option.

Unfortunately still a long way to come. The 3DS is not cracked yet and it takes a lot of time to develop an emulator to play some games. Desmume team not interested in upgrading their DS emulator to 3DS. It took some time for emulators to play DP without hiccups.

The 3DS is worth it, lots of good games for it.

I got my 3DS around a year ago. I hope it still works before X/Y get released.
