Hi All,

First time poster here.

I currently have the original DS, got it on release and after a couple of years without playing have just got back into it - just in time for Pokemon, it'll be the first time i've played the game since the Blue/Red/Yellow titles.

So now i'm wondering... The original isn't very stylish, a bit chunky and uses the old OS, so i'm thinking of upgrading. When I first saw the XL released I thought this was the console for me, but after reading reviews/watching videos on YouTube, it seems a bit too big to be portable and the same resolution as the DSi on a 93% screen seems a bit of a let down, so in your opinion, is the XL portable? Is the resolution noticeable? Should I go for the DSi or DSi XL, or stick with the original grey DS?
