I haven't played Pokemon since Gen 3. Should I emulate the DS games, or buy a 3DS to play the newer games + DS games?

buy a new new 3ds get the games and join the experience, family

ignore the gen 6 hate meme
>>
As someone who has played the new games, I highly recommend actually getting a 3DS so you can play the old and new games. They added a lot since Gen 3, some great, some not. But it's worth it in my opinion.
>>
>>24976942
>New New 3DS
like the one that plays Monster Hunter better or something? I was just thinking of a 2DS as all I want is Pokemon, Persona Q, and Smash.
>>
>>24976949
yeah that was kind of a joke

get a 2ds, it's all i have and it works just fine.
>>
>>24976951
I'm planning on picking one up myself from Amazon. It's even coming with a free game.
>>
>>24976942
>ignore the gen 6 hate meme
ignore the "gen 6 is good" meme

OP, i'd suggest you wait until this gen's last game comes out and just emulating the old games until then.
>>
>>24976936
Emulate the DS Games and Buy current Pokémon Games.
>>
>>24976951
>doesn't bend
you better have some big pockets
>>
>>24977014
Now you know OP isn't a sperg enough to play that shit in public.

Right?
>>
>>24977014
OP here, I wouldn't take it anywhere. I've never brought a portable console to anywhere besides my PSP to play Loco Roco, that's it.
>>
>>24977028
Not even to get an event 'mon?
>>
>>24977039
No.
>>
>>24976936
>Get 3DS
>Get ORAS (has the most new features etc among Gen 6 games, also nice nostalgic remake for your gen 3 ass)
>Get Platinum, HGSS, BW/BW2 at your convenience since 3DS plays DS games as well

You really can't go wrong with a 3DS.
>>
>>24976949
>Persona Q
I hope youre familiar with roguelikes and the Etryian odyssey series because youre in for pure hell if youre not. PQ is not easy at all
>>
I restarted playing when XY came out after not playing since Gen 2

Buy the 3DS OP, you're going to have so much fun
>>
Platinum
Black/White
Black2/White2
X/Y
>>
Kinda related question here...
Do you guise think there'll be pokemon new 3DS version coming out soon? I want a new system and I hear the new screens are a lot better (that is if you actually get one of the new IPS? units)
>>
>>24977210
The entire board is literally banking on there being a Z version later this year; most of the telltale signs for a third version are present. ORAS were announced in May and released in November of the same year, so I'd be sorely surprised if we didn't have a similar schedule for Z.

Buy a 3DS and play the new games. Online battling and especially trading are a huge part of the game and you're missing out on those by playing older games.
>>
>>24977210
A N3DS exclusive Pokemon game? Never. They can't alienate their fans like that.

I doubt they'd even do a N3DS "improved" version. That would require work.

Emulate DS, there aren't any Pokémon games worth playing on 3DS. Except Super Mystery Dungeon.

Also New 3DS is a complete waste, has a couple advanced features for a couple games and only one exclusive and it's been out for over a year. If you do decide to get a 3DS, an old 3DS or 2DS sounds fine.
>>
>>24977639
>online battling

He could just use a simulator if he wants that, it's quicker to build a team and (at least in my experience) quicker to find a game. And 6v6 singles.

>trading

I don't know about DS, but you can locally trade with emulators for GB and GBA games and I wouldn't think it a stretch to be able to do so with DS.
>>
>>24977014
>no hinges
Literally the best decision. Less to break, center of gravity is better, the list goes on...

Get a 2ds and go to >>>/vg/hgb/ for free games

Okay.
>>
>>24977210
3DS games run at the same resolution regardless of which version of the console you're running them on. New 3DSs might have higher brightness, and I think they're a bit bigger, but you don't really get much difference in image quality.
>>
>>24976949
A lot of people will disagree, but 2DS is a good choice if you're not going to be playing it all that much. It's dirt-cheap and not as uncomfortable as it looks. It's not like anybody actually cares about the 3D either.
>>
>>24976936
Get 3DS and play Platinum, HG/SS and wait for next game soon to be announced. Ignore everything else and don't let the autists in this thread tell you otherwise.
>>
>>24979830
no one trades on an emulator and there's barely even any point trading in the older games, why would you even pretend that's the same thing?

What point is there for trading in the current generation that isn't in older games?

And I've traded with other people in emulation if we were playing a game at the same time. I suppose you don't need to since every game these days has a 151/251/386/etc. patch, but I still want to know what makes Gen 6 trading so special compared to Gen 4 or 5.
>>
>>24980382
the current games have an active trading community and it's fun to mess around with features like wonder trade and the GTS
>>
>>24980382
I think trading on the gts and wondertrade is more fun and convenient
>>
>>24980421
>the current games have an active trading community

Yes, and?

Wonder Trade is fun for a bit, but I found it boring after getting the 50th Zigzagoon, doesn't seem worth trading anything through that if people aren't even going to try, the only time I ever use it now is pumping illegal event legends everywhere so 10-year-olds can have a power trip.

GTS stopped being useful after I caught them all.
>>
>>24980449
>GTS stopped being useful after I caught them all
good for you, but this thread is about a new player, trading is a very important feature in this situation
>>
>>24979980

But you can do it without GTS if you wanted. And if he wanted to beat a game naturally you can catch 'em all in older gens if you team up with a friend who has the other version. And the GTS isn't going away any time soon either, it'll be there in Gen 7 if Gen 7 is less shitty than Gen 6 and worth getting.
