    Both.
    DS games in a 3DS look weird; I think it's the re-sizing of the top and bottom screens (compared to the DSi.)
    Though I do use my 3DS at times for the dream radar.

      I'm playing on my DS Lite, but it's not a great experience, since my DS Lite keeps having this weird problem with the screen where everything turns white, and I have to fiddle with the top half to make it go away. It usually stays fine like that, but if I bend the top half to a certain point, the screen turns white again. As a result, my DS Lite's screen is always glitchy white when I turn it on.

      I'm going to get a 3DS XL pretty soon though, so I'll probably never use my crappy DS Lite again (except now I can finally trade Pokemon between my games, once I get a 3DS).

        I have both games and both systems, and usually I have Black 2 in my DS lite and White 2 in my 3DS. It does look a lot better on the DS, though. I also prefer the regular d-pad controls to the circle pad, so I use the d-pad on the 3DS as well.

          I do the same thing except I play white 2 on my ds lite and black 2 on my 3ds and I also agree saying that it looks better on the lite.

            I never use my DS unless I want to mess around with action replay. I rarely even use my 3DS, but yes, I do play White 2 on my 3DS.

              Yeah, I kept my original 3DS for that reason - it's nice to trade my best Pokémon from Black to Black 2 and eventually from Black 2 to White 2 :D

                I use my 3DS for my White2 mainly just because it's the only console I can use for any kind of trading/DreamWorld things.
                My other option is Lite and it doesn't like WPA2 webs... =(

                  I played Black 2, about 50 of the 60 hours, on my 3DS. I wish that the games had been for 3DS, but they were still fun on the DS. I c an't wait for a Pokemon game like this to come to the 3DS. I am so excited for one!!

                    I've been playing Black 2 on my 3DS, since the hinge on my DS Lite is kinda loose and for Wi-Fi.

                      I'm mainly playing BW2 on my DS (alternating between the original DS and DS lite, depending on which one is easier to get to/has more battery life left). I have a 3DS, but it doesn't keep its charge too long, and at the moment, I prefer to use it for 3DS-exclusive games (and use one of my DS systems for DS games).

                        So, I'm wondering, do you play B2/W2 on your 3DS? Or you prefer doing it on DS/DSi because of the bad look of the games on 3DS?
                        I'm actually strongly considering buying a DS Lite, because DS games look really bad on the 3DS screen. I wish Nintendo had forgone 3D in favour of doubling the resolution, because that way DS games would look just as crisp. But, gimmicks sell I guess! I also want a DS Lite because the 3DS's battery life is horrible. The standby is so amazingly bad.

                          It won't so much be a gimmick when X and Y come out.

                          The standby time seems to be remedied by turning wireless off, by the way.

                              Uh, no, it's not going to be less of a gimmick when X and Y come out. There isn't anything in X and Y that needs to be in stereoscopic 3D. The only game I have seen that actually benefits functionally from 3D is Super Mario 3D Land, and that's only in a few areas. Pokemon X and Y aren't going to vindicate Nintendo's penchant for gimmicks in any way.

                              I always have wireless off unless I want to use the e-shop, and then I turn it off right after. The standby is still pathetic. I can't even leave it on standby overnight without it being dead when I wake up. I could leave my PS Vita on standby for over a month and I could still play a game for an hour when I finally use it again.

                                My grandma bought me 3DS XL today, I'm now playing it on my 3DS White and also at times Black 2... I will give my DS Lite to my little sister.

                                  on 3DS, because to afford one I had to trade in my beloved DSi XL, but I honestly don't notice the drop in quality much

                                  I first began playing on my DS Lite but since they have introduced X & Y I'm trying to familiarize myself with controls of the 3DS.

                                    I play on my 3DS. It's either my first DS with scratches all over the bottom screen or the clean 3DS.

                                    Also, I don't see how it makes the games look bad, they look just fine.

                                      I play on my 3DS XL, I do have my DSi still but reeally don't see what's up with how it looks on there. Not to mention it was an expensive Christmas present, damn straight I'll be getting the use out of it!

                                        Play mine on my 3DS XL without the Start + Select trick and although the pixelation can be a little unnerving sometimes... I love the feel of the 3DS XL and how large the spread between your hands and the screen is, perfect sized console no matter what the resolution. Haven't had a real problem with it yet.

                                          I did play Black 2 on the 3DS, it was a bit annoying with the blurriness, but was enough to bear during the game.
