    I've already owned a 3DS before, and had sold it because of the lacking amount of games out for it that interested me.

    As much as I want to get these new games, I can't justify getting a new 3DS just for these. Will just have to wait and see if the prices go down lower than they are now for the 3DS.

      I think once enough people see the advertising and everything of these games, they'll easily get a 3DS for it. Not many might have them now, but Pokemon fans certainly don't like missing out on things and I don't think there will be a shortage on people getting the 3DS to get the games.

      I think the games will give a reason to many to buy a 3DS now. And as Jake said, they're not that expensive now anyway.

      This announcement will certainly put the 3DS in the spot light, so maybe more companies will start making content for it, since one of the biggest out there has put their game on it.

      I've held onto my 3DS since I bought it on the first day of release, and I've been happy with it since.

      Of course these games are going to boost 3DS sales, not that they're at a low, anyway.

      Also, the 3DS has a great library of games, if you're a new buyer, there are amazing upcoming games like Animal Crossing and Luigi's Mansion coming up, and there's also a great existing Library with titles such as Kid Icarus, and Mario Kart! :>

      Pokemon is the second most popular gaming franchise in the world, so this could help 3DS sales a lot.

      And I'm so glad I got a 3DS for Christmas cos I didn't want to feel left out, but I guess for some fans it means the final nail in the coffin.

      So they should not have made GBA games because the GB/C had a bigger owner percentage, DS because GBA had a bigger owner percentage? No offense, but that argument has really gotten stale. By the time these games come out, the 3DS will be ~ 5 months shy of 3 years old, that's plenty of time to scrap up enough cash for one(especially with the early price drop it got for waiters and the rumored slight price drop popping up soon, if it hasn't already; It's not like it doesn't have bc either so you can continue playing your ds games.

        But I don't see why they don't just go to the Wii and put the games on that. It will make the graphics a lot better for one and give the game something else.

        Alright they want it being a handheld but theres only so much a handheld console can be evolved before it reaches it maximum.

        Hey, I might not agree with the OP, I am just sparking discussion! :P

        The games industry has to move forward and the gamers have to follow, so some people could just see this as a 'normal' thing to happen. But with the lack of DS games, is it fair?

        Wtf? Well I guess I'm not getting it then. There's no way that I'm buying a 3DS with which I seriously don't want to do anything just for one game. Can't have an R4 on it either so yeah no. I'll wait for the internet to find a way lol.

        You should read up on why they feel like a handheld is best fit for the main games of the series. ;) Also, why release for the Wii when that's already gotten the boot for some time now? If you mean the Wii U, I repeat that first sentence I said. It's not like the Wii U isn't going to get some amazing spin-offs; spin offs are always all over the place.

        Lack of DS games in what respect? Pokemon-wise, the DS has an overabundance of it; a 3DS main title announcement has been overdue really. :P That wasn't meant for a personal attack either, just a response to that saying in general.

          If you cannot afford the small amount for a 3DS in the next 10 months, then you need to take a good long look at what you're doing wrong with your life.

Otherwise, we might as well still be playing our NESes.
            I agreed too. DS is already dying. There is no point prolong their life, let them rest and Baton Pass it to 3DS.

              I'm more excited for the full 3D models! Anybody remember Pokemon coliseum and Pokemon XD? It's something I've wanted on handheld for a long long time and I finally have! I am really excited for this new change.

                  Until XY gets released, many games will come out. At least there are lot I'm looking forward to. I already have at least 10 games I'm looking forward too, and it's just the beginning of 3DS. But Pokemon is the main reason for me to get one, so I hoped for a later release. I'm also happy it comes out this year. Too bad the prices are terrible in my country.

                  Thus, while maybe coming out too soon for the west (double edged sword for international release?), it will certainly boost the sales of 3DS. The only bad thing is that those who don't buy the game soon enough, will miss out some wifi gifts.

                  There will probably be a Christmas promotion where you can get an exclusive 3DS with Pokemon X or Y pre-installed for a reasonable price.

                  I was thinking this, which would be a nice offer. I would certainly wait for that offer if I were to, finally, decide to get it again.

                    Ah, well, my main reason why I bought 3DS in the first place is because of Pokemon as well. I thought many people should prepare for this when 3DS released. With many prices cut it receive till now, I guess 3DS shouldn't be the main reason why the audience got limited.

                    Wait, shouldn't it be XY2? Or maybe We got Z then XYZ2?

                      Erk, you may be right. Everyone was expecting a Pokemon Gray announcement but Nintendo totally pulled a curveball on that one.

                      The Fire and Water starters look like ****. Mostly the Water one. The male character looks a lot like Black.

                      And the screenshots of the overworld... I dunno what to think. TOO MANY CONFLICTING FEELINGS! AND WHERE'S RUBY/SAPPHIRE REMAKES?

                        A damned curveball that is. Not a bad detraction from the old formula but not really good one considering the storyline are worse from BW.
                        Whether or not they take the old route and or continue BW2 likes, I'll hope they really their best with the game without taking much past feature only to add it into later version. That's disgusting.

                        Er....I guess we will have our Gen 3 remake this time right? RIGHT?

                        No I wouldn't say so. I don't have a 3DS at the moment but that's not stopping me. I'll be doing everything I can to get enough money to buy a 3DS. Looking for a job immediately when I get on tomorrow and I'm even willing to sell a few things (maybe even my old DS). The DS is a dying system and it needs to go now as sad as that seems. Pokemon are a very popular franchise, second most selling next to Super Mario Bros, and the fanbase is still large and growing. So I have no doubt that people will make the transition over to 3DS.

                        No, not really, making it for 3DS makes the most sense, but it still sucks for people who can't/don't want to afford it. I'll probably end up getting it in a year or so when it's cheaper.

                          I find this disappointing. The 3DS has been a major turn off. I have tried the 3DS and do not like playing with the 3D turned on as after a very short time it causes me to have a headache. I have been avoiding the 3DS, and the only reason I will likely buy it will be because I want to continue playing my favorite franchise.

                          I also think that many parents of younger kids that play Pokemon games likely have not bought their children 3DS's because of the safety warnings about the 3D being bad for the eyesight of anyone under 7... As a parent myself I wouldn't buy the system for ANY child because of that (Yes I know there is parental controls for that, but every kid finds a way to work around parental controls eventually).

                          I have felt all along that the 3D effect in a handheld is more of a novelty than anything that adds any actual game play functionality. If a game publishers wants to impress me, I want good solid game play, a good solid story, fun challenges to overcome. The Pokemon franchise has continued to keep me interested in gaming since Red/Blue, and keeps getting better with time. There is only one 3DS title I have seen that I had any interest in prior to this announcement, so in the long run I'll be purchasing the system just for a very few games (The other game is in the Proffessor Layton series, which I don't see justification for making that a 3DS title... and it was a launch title in Japan).
