    Since we all know that a new Pokemon game is coming for 3ds, do you think that the Pokemon Games will now be for 3ds? or will they still be for ds?

    Perhaps, they'd make a DS game or two. Then move onto the 3DS, like how all the previous games moved on to better consoles.
    But also, they might not. They'll probably think, kids won't buy a 3DS just to play a single game.

      Most people are switching to 3DS's now that the stores have more limited quantities of the DS series models. Its not hard to make them shift and pay an extra $20 for a 3DS.

      That and the list for the rest of 2012's DS games is like 5 or 6 games and there so far is no confirmed 2013 games on the list last time I went to gamestop.

      Nintendo has all but released a "The DS series is being discontinued" statement, but that's just a matter of time.

      So, yes I believe that Pokemon is now switching to the 3DS.

      No, they're going to stay on the DS. Forever. Sorry. Anyway, yeah, they're gradually making the switch with the spin off games. I think it's fair to say, for spin offs anyway, that Conquest will be the last on the DS. Or that typing game, since I think that's supposed to get localized some time soon. But yeah, the change seems to be slow right now, since Conquest was on the DS and then the next main games are on the DS, but you have spin offs like Rumble Blast and the new PMD on 3DS. I'd say we're in a transition period, but soon enough, the DS will be out of the light and the 3DS can finally really shine.

        If I was GameFreak I would do this. Since lots of people have moved up to the 3DS they should make it for them; but lots of people as myself don't have the funds to afford a 3DS so they got a DS Lite or DSi or hell even the old school DS. So they should make future Pokemon games for them as well. They could easily make it for both handheld devices, I mean look at what PS2 and PS3 did. A lot of games when PS3 came out were still gettin made on the PS2 but over the period of about 3 years they quit making them except for a couple games. So I think GameFreak might do the same thing. Gives people time to get the 3DS or the future DS cuz there's probably one coming.

        Yeah, now that Mystery Dungeon is for the 3DS and that's a spin off, I doubt they would revert back to DS for another mainstream.

        I think Nintendo will stick to the regular DS platform for making their main games because not everyone may have a 3DS on them to play those games. IMO, only the spin-off games could be done on the 3DS to further update the graphics of past titles (Rumble Blast and the new Mystery Dungeon game are examples of this).

          Nintendo is trying to force all their smaller companies to push 3DS titles.......Gamefreak may not want to, but soon Nintendo will force them to cause they are pushing their focus onto the Wii U and the 3DS.

            Eventually, yes. The DS is still hot right now but the 3DS is starting to finally pick up, so once it does it should (hopefully) replace the DS games.

              I'm not really sure, but most probably 3DS, If not I won't mind, as long as they make an awesome remake with great graphics.

                They probably will, and i hope they will. I already own a 3DS (and love it), imagine playing a complete Handheld RPG with those pokemon in 3 Dimensions, i already love how they look on Pokedex 3D.

                If they put the mainstreams on the 3DS then I can only assume that would urge fans to go out and buy a 3DS, that's how Nintendo usually play things out.

                    Absolutely, and I can't wait. I have a DSi and a 3DS, and frankly I play all my games on the former, because the older games, even BW and most likely BW2, arent made to fit on the 3DS's screen. The 3DS looks great with 3DS games, but not so much with DS games

                    In all honesty, I wouldn't be surprised if Black and White 2 were the last main series games for the regular DS (even though I won't be neccessarily happy about it). Just like when you look at the historical transition of many consoles (PS1 -> PS2 -> PS3, XBox -> 360, GB -> GBC -> GBA -> DS), there will always be some games that continue to be made for the old system, but eventually they realize that there is more money to be made on the newer platform.

                    While I don't think that the 3DS has quite surpassed it's predecessor yet, by the time a new main Pokemon game comes out I think it will have, so there's no reason why it wouldn't be on the 3DS.

                      I guess people seem to forget that we went from GB to GBC to GBA to DS.

                      Not true at all. I bought a Gamecube just for Wind Waker, a DS just for Pokemon Diamond, a Wii just for SSBB, and a Xbox360 just for for Gears of War. There's lots of people who buy a console for just on big-name title. This will be no different.

                      Pokemon is a console seller. People may say they won't buy a certain console, but when Pokemon comes out on it they'll buy it in a heartbeat.

                      I'm going to guess that your just really misinformed, but theres not a single gameslated for release on the DS for 2013. There's some set for this year, but most of them are just shovelware except B2/W2. Why in the world woud they make a new model for the DS?

                      Did "not everyone having one" stop Microsoft from producing games on the 360? Did it stop Nintendo from producing games on the Wii? Why would the case be any different here?

                      Why can't the same be done with main series games?

                      Ummm, are you also extremely misinformed that there's only one big name title coming out on the DS this year while the 3DS has like, a dozen.

                        The fact that MD, which I consider to be one of the best spinoff series (PkMn Ranger and Colosseum/XD being the others ) being 3d is the one and only reason why I'm expecting the next mainstream Pokemon games to be 3D.

                        If we get our Hoenn remakes, that will either be the beginning of Mainstream 3DS Pokemon games or the very last DS mainstream title.

                        However, if GameFreak stays with 2D + 3Dstuff titles on the DS, I'll be cool with it. As long as they look like BW/BW2 or even better.

                          Releasing a 3DS version would drive 3DS sales, no doubt. I bought a 3DS for OoT. I would undoubtedly buy a 3DS for a Pokemon game if I had to.

                          Releasing a 3DS game might drive 3DS sales, but I guess they might still make main series on the DS until 6th Gen or something so they can appeal to those who don't have a 3DS yet.

                              Mystery Dungeon 3DS looks amazing. I suppose I'll have to start saving my pennies to get a 3DS!

                                I think it might be awkward to have a 3D game because Pokemon tends to stick with overworld tile movements (though Ranger would be cool in 3D) so it looks awkward and clunky at some times (referring to the new PMD trailer) but I guess it'll still be new and different.

                                For one thing the Pokemon dungeon 3D made a drastic change to the mystery dungeon graphics so theres one example.
                                For the main pokemon games. Pokemon already made a little 3D action go on during when you go on the bridge to that big city. I can imagine that every game they make that aspect will get better and better.

                                  They won't do this. That's actually sort of telling people "You don't have to buy our new product" which is the opposite of what they want. They're trying to get people to realize that the 3DS is not just another DS upgrade, but a whole new system. And I'm not sure if it was stated officially or not, but I do believe B2W2 will be the final "big games" for the DS. The fact that this new Mystery Dungeon is for the 3DS just shows they're finally moving on.

                                  Why do some people think the DS won't be retired? I'm sorry, but ever since I got my 3DS, I haven't used my old DS. Even tiny extras like Find Mii make it much better than the DS. (plus I just got my last Pokemon today for the original Pokedex 3D) I still have many of Nintendo's older system's like the Super Nintendo and N64. I still love playing older games on them, but that didn't stop Nintendo from moving on to the GameCube or the Wii, and now the WiiU.

                                  From the little bits of the main town you see, it seems that allows for more free movement. I think it's a good move to keep dungeons with the 'tile' movement because they are more turn-based anyway. The game looks nice overall, have been waiting on a new Mystery Dungeon for too long now!
