    Then maybe you should try to find some other games you might enjoy!

    Personally, I'd recommend Super Mario 3D Land! I've enjoyed playing it for a long time! And the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time would be worth it. And for something Pokemon related, there's always the 3D Pokedex Pro which can also double as a substitute "Snap 2" since you can take pictures of the Pokemon! And of course if you have your Gen 5 games, I'd get the Dream Radar so you can get the Therian Formes as well as use the Gen 4 games to get all 5 Gen 4 mascots.

    And remember, most likely there will be more Pokemon games in the future besides just X & Y. Not to mention all the fun extras like the Mii games and stuff that are already on the 3DS. It's well worth the investment.

      The 3DS has been available for close to two years in North America, and considering Diamond / Pearl came out nearly two years after the DS' launch, it's about time a new Pokémon generation arrived on the former. While Nintendo hasn't sold quite as many 3DS units as it did the DS within a similar timeframe, it's still sold a decent amount of them-- at the very least, many people consider it the go-to handheld system rather than the Vita, which is a pretty good accomplishment. Plus, Pokémon itself is a system-seller. I don't think we need to worry about the game not performing well commercially.

      I personally think a 3DS is well worth it, and if you hate the 3D, just turn it off and never use it.

      That aside, in my case I have a 3DS so I don't really care that it's 3DS exclusive. However, in the case of everyone else, I can see people having an aversion to it because of the price or, in the case of parents of small children, the fact that the 3D isn't good for them (though, again, they can just turn it off, but little kids sometimes don't know better so Idk), but given how A. there are currently awesome games out for it and more awesome games coming out in the future (X and Y included) and B. there's plenty of time before X's and Y's release so there's a chance the price will drop at least once ('course, how much it'd drop is a different story), and C. it's POKEMON, I doubt it'd be the end.

        Honestly, I think that people should have the 3DS already. DSi and DSLite are outdated, and have been. They were already obsolete when BW2 came out. I bought my 3DS when I got my tax returns last year and it was the best thing ever.

        As far as how many people have the 3DS currently, I would think that TPCi had made this decision based on how many people have downloaded Pokedex 3D in the marketplace. That would give them a sort of head count for how many players HAVE a 3DS.

          Although I can't afford a 3DS, I don't think it means the end for pokemon, I think it'll just buy it for pokemon games, especially the new mystery dungeon, looks sexy xD

          How can anyone even say this? lol.
          It's like saying Ruby and Sapphire being on the GBA would be the end of Pokémon, Diamond and Pearl on the DS etc.

          It's the same thing that's happened every time they make the change of handhelds.
          If people want the game that bad, they'll buy a 3DS or, more likely, already had one because they knew this was coming eventually.

            I have a 3DS XL. To people saying Pokemon isn't enough of a reason to buy a 3DS, there are other games. I also bought a 3DS XL only for Pokemon. I can play all Gen 4, 5 and soon 6 on it. Worthy buy if you ask me.

              The DS is way too old. It's older than the XBOX 360, it needs to RIP. Why people is so obsessed with the DS?

              It's not like Nintendo is forcing people to use the 3DS. Forcing would be Apple telling people the iPhones prior to the 4S are not gonna be compatible with x thing so they should buy iPhone 5 (every year there's a new iPhone).

                I already have a 3DS and I agree with some of the first people on the page, It'll only boost 3DS sales. The regular 3DS will most likely go down in price soon, now that the 3DS XL is out. As for the thing about worrying about small children and the 3D part, there's an option to disable it in the parental controls. Only reason I know this is because my mentally challenged sister got a 3DS for Christmas not this past year, but the year before, and I had to disable it from accessing the internet.

                  This is ridiculous.

                  DS release: November 24, 2004
                  Diamond/Pearl: April 22, 2007
                  882 days

                  3DS release: March 25, 2011
                  XY: October 1, 2013 (for calculation purposes, I just used the first)
                  921 days at least

                  There's more time than the last system upgrade. It's just stupidity.

                  Also, the 3DS is compatible with Gen 4 and 5, 2 generations backward. The DS is compatible only with one generation backward, Gen 3, and that's on the older models. Mathematically speaking, these games are in a better situation than Diamond/Pearl was with the DS. Was everyone always this horrible when the Pokemon games went to a new system? I'm getting aneurysms reading some of these things I see online. :'(

                    Time to save up money...

                    It was time for Pokemon to enter the next handheld console anyways, it would appeal to the audience more with new 3D features instead of the same features over and over again on DS. They implemented the new camera angles really well in X and Y. Plus, the 3D models used in battle are BRILLIANT, no more pixelated messes like the ones in Black and White.

                      am I the only one who is disappointed in the fact that the next Pokemon game is not compatible with the DS Lite?
                      Granted, 3D tech is not possible (per say) on the Lite, but I would think that they would wait until the 3DS was a little cheaper to put out such a popular game with such exclusiveness. (oh wait...) i hate money..

                      This was bound to happen sooner or later, the DS System has been around for 7 years now so I think it's definitely time we changed.

                      The DS also had two generations under its belt which is more than any other handheld console, I don't know why people think we should stick to the DS when we've had a perfectly working and fresh new handheld releases for 2 years, even longer for Game Freak in terms of the development kit. The only way it was going to ever stay on the DS for a year longer would have been if they decided to remake Ruby & Sapphire before X & Y which would have been a bad move on their part.

                      Pokemon is one of their best selling Franchise, not only will it sell on the 3DS but it will also boost the sales of the 3DS handheld too. I can understand why people would be irritated that they didn't stick these games on the Nintendo DS but think about it... why would they? The 3DS is the current console, it has so much more to offer and ultimately, the games are far better off on the 3DS.

                        You're not the only one, in fact you're not the only one right now either.

                        This sort of thing has happened before in the pokemon series, technology evolves and the series evolves along with it.

                          No - you're definitely not the only one. I've seen tons and tons of people complaining about this.

                          But, honestly - the 3DS has already been out for almost two years. That's more than enough time to allow customers to buy one. Obviously, the switch was going to made sooner or later - technology keeps moving forward, so, eventually hardware has to get upgraded.

                            I'm pretty sure that Gamestop will be offering the DS trade-in for the 3DS as well for a lower price, which I will partake in when Pokemon X and Y are released.

                              We all knew this was coming, we knew that at sometime we would have to buy a 3DS at some point. I mean the 3DS already had a price drop (just shortly after I bought mine ... ) We've had close to 2 years to pick one up and you STILL have until October to save up for one. I mean come on, Let it go.

                              The DS had it's time and had an awesome run, but it's time to retire it.

                              I can't say that I was surprised at all. It was bound to happen and for how long will they keep stretching on releasing Pokemon games for the Nintendo 3D. It was obviously bound to happen.

                              So am I disappointing? Disappointed as in, me having to buy a 3DS, yes. Since I gotta waste around 169$ to get one.
                              But disappointed that the game will be on 3DS? No. I think it's a wise choice.

                              And as I'm sure they've already said, GF had a chance to test it out, with the "enhanced capabilities" BW2 had for the 3DS, i'm sure it's not that hard to use a "page hits" kinda thing every time you used one of those features.

                              And seeing as they are making this for the 3DS, I'm sure it was a successssss.

                                Hey, don't complain. I had to pay $250 for mine... Granted the Ambassador program was nice, but still.

                                I'm sure that's part of why they waited so long.

                                The DS when I bought Diamond (a year late, mind you) was $150, and with the game it was $170.

                                And now, disregarding inflation and all that, the consoles are around $170 and the games $40. I'm sure that's why they waited so long - marketability. No kid's shelling out $300 for a game that they'll play for a week - even though $210 is still a lot, it's a long shot towards being more affordable.

                                  Yeah, but that was when it first came out, it got it's price drop very shortly after, hence they made the ambassador program for those early adopters. $169 is a hell of a good price. There is no reason not to get one now, especially with the XL. That's why I don't understand why there are still people right now that are acting surprised they will have to upgrade.

                                  Great price, better hardware, and a decent number of good games available for it right now. Come on, what more do you want?

                                  That's my point, though.

                                  Old habits die hard, I guess.

                                    I've always bought a desired console the day it came out, so I have no problem with it, but yes, I could see why people would get upset over this, but in Nintendo's defense, it has been out for almost 2 years.

                                    ...and several months shy of 3 by the time the games are out on top of that.
