Is it worth getting a 3DS just for the new pokemon games? And if it is should I shell out for the XL?

Totally love pokemon and am having cravings lol, cheers folks x

Bear in mind you can get a normal 3DS cheap as fuck second hand. However there are a lot of good games whatever sized version you buy.

I've got a backlog but pokemon keeps getting in the way. The lack of pokebank is killing it but as long as this only drags out a few weeks and not a few months I will be back to competitive battling and training when it drops. For now I'm hitting up SS, I just found out one of my friends has Fire red, HG and an old DS.... I have B2 as well...

No Pokebank is sort of killing it for me as well. All I'm doing right now is chaining with legendaries on GTS so I can complete my Pokedex. I bet you I'll be finished before Bank comes out, which is unfortunate.

When they announced x and y I knew that I was going to buy a 3DS. I almost got a second hand original but then just decided to buy an XL in about August. When I picked it up I got KH 3D, New Super Mario Bros 2, and Mario Kart. I got Y on release day and later bought X, then got OoT later in October. So far I've gotten my moneys worth and there are still a lot more games I wanna get so yeah even if you originally pick it up just for pokemon you'll eventually find something else to play. Also the streetpass games are addicting as fuck.

As far as original vs XL I got an XL because of the better battery and it seems to fit better in my hands. I gave my sister my old DS lite and god damn does that thing feel cramped. I guess as and end note while the XL is superior both are very viable options.

If you could only have ONE Pokemon, what would it be? Assume everybody gets one Pokemon. Not everybody battles with them, like some use Pokemon for work or play or whatever, but there is certainly a subculture of Pokemon trainers who battle with their Pokemon. Pokemon that evolve through levels gained in battle can evolve via happiness or real-life experience if battling is not your thing. Ones that require stones obviously still would, and you can prevent an evolution with or without an everstone also.

I guess it's important to note that in this scenario it is possible to have more than one Pokemon, but let's just say that you'd need a special battling permit, similar to how you need to pass a test for your drivers license, depending on how many Pokemon and at what levels they are. Just go with your number 1 Pokemon for this thread though.

Name the Pokemon, and post a picture of it if it's not too much trouble. No restrictions on generation or region, starters are allowed.

I choose Vaporeon, but I'd try my damnedest to obtain a Squirtle just because he's also been my Pokebro forever. The reason I went Vaporeon is he'd be a better snuggle buddy and potentially be more playful.

holy shit this is a hard choice. I wanna say totodile, cause raising that motherfucker into a giant blue alligator thats strong as fuck would be so sick. Me and feraligatr would fuck shit up.

At the same time I'd love a machop, I mean feraligatr could probably workout with me but iunno how he'd grab weights with his claws, machamp on the other hand. Imagine this, you're out lifting one day, and you notice machop drops the 50s he was just curling, grabs some bigger weights, finishes a set and then evolves into machoke right before your eyes.

then theres Pidgeot, big majestic bird you can ride. Everybody cranes their neck to catch a glimpse of you doing crazy aerial shit.

I think ninetails would be sick too, so long as it lets me touch its tails without cursing me.

Gengar is flexible, it's scary the amount of shit he can do. Pretty much anything not involving taking hits basically. Amazing coverage, great speed, attack, trapping ability in mega, control, support and special attack options everywhere. I can't imagine him ever not being super competitive, his movepool and stats are too good.

Is anyone else here trying to complete their Pokedex? Is there quick way to getting it done? All I've been doing lately is using GTS. It's really not as bad as I thought it was. People are pretty supportive if you mention "Completing Pokedex" in your description.

Pokemon Bank isn't a myth after all.

Bank just went live in "Certain Asian countries".

Many people claim that NA will get Bank Thursday. Europe will probably get it before then, I dunno.

It honestly felt the X & Y rival was more of a random trainer you once met before you started your journey. Then you happened to keep running into each other for some reason and every so often, have a which; will result the rival to feel bad about themselves.

I can say 100% say (been playing since Red & Blue days) that X & Y isn't best rival but at the same time, wasn't the worst, am looking at you Ruby & Sapphire. That rival quit before its starter became its final form.

I miss the good old rivals that felt like a rival. Gen 1 & Gen 2 had the best rivals and Gen 4 felt like the first friendly rival that you would have in real life.
Sailor John - Mon, 13 Jan 2014 13:37:21 EST ID:tEQRcURK No.223125 Ignore Report Quick Reply
X and Y isn't about rivals in the sense of the other games though. In B2/W2 you didn't really have a rival either though, he was a friend who met you and battled you and just wanted your help. Then when the final push came, as we expected from his earnest over posturing, he didn't really give a shit about anything except his personal problem and he left you to clean up the mess. Most rivals chill out in time but this guy started off compassionate and then I just felt used and dirty.

Anyway Serena isn't a rival in the same sense, it's just of you and your friends only you and her are halfway decent at battling. If you hadn't set out with her she would be the champion, but you are just the stronger trainer. Every person in that group has a personal quest, which drives them, shaping the way they "use" their pokemon and it's unique to them and she just happens to be the one aside from you who can battle. Her goal isn't to have great experiences with great people, or to see lots of pokemon, or to see lots of moves, but it's more complex, she feels she has to prove herself and step out the shadows of her parents. Every time I beat her I felt bad because I knew I was pushing her down when she was trying to stand up as her own person but in the end it works out okay. Somehow instead of breaking her you just show her that she has to do it another way. And she does. But it's in spite of you and not because I think. It's difficult though, I mean did our character say some words that helped her realise her own value? Did she see it in the way we respecting the "weaker" friends? Or did she really just come to that point completely on her own and in spite of us? I guess that's for us to fill in.

Remember, pokemon is a game that is designed to kids can enjoy it. It's got shitloads of hidden depth, ridiculous amounts of it, but it's designed to you can engage at a load of levels and enjoy it and that means that on the surface the main plot and characters are basically aimed so that they won't be lost on most 9 years (so some of the slightly slower ones too) we're not going to get much more nuanced in our characters until …
