Okay so after much deliberation I've decided that I REALLY want to buy a Nintendo handheld console almost entirely just to play the new Pokemon games and a few Mario titles!
I kinda need some hell finding the best bundle for my needs, just one game will do (Pokemon!) and it needs to be as cheap as possible

I also kinda need help deciding on which console to get!
Price is a definite factor, but I'm not sure which would be the best to get; 2DS, 3DS or the 3DSXL
Is Pokemon available on all three? Idk haha I just want to experience it after reading the X and Y threads :-(
Cheers guys!

[QUOTE="One-Shot, post: 6302230]2DS, 3DS, and 3DSXL are all the same system...

I would say go 3DS, bigger screen makes a good difference.[/QUOTE]

I'm sorry I'm a complete Nintendo noob, I think the last console I had was a GBA! If the price is right though I'm willing to get back into it!

No idea about the UK, but in the U.S. I have seen sales on all the different models up to $50. So plenty of deals if you keep an eye out, although probably more so around holidays.

Yes Pokemon X/Y, as well as all the Pokemon games from the DSi/Lite system, can play on any three of them.

I wouldn't go with anything except the XL. It's a HUGE difference from the small screen. WORTH every extra penny it costs.

Cheapest XL? Either stand alone or with Pokemon included? £160 seems a little excessive; I didn't even pay that for my vita with 10 games and 8GB memory..

[QUOTE="LM-93, post: 6302240]What would be a reasonable amount to pay in your opinion? And these systems, is the only difference screen sizes?[/QUOTE]
That and obviously 2DS doesn't do 3D. Also XL has a bigger battery.

As for what's reasonable all depends on you. Was reasonable for me to pay the full MSRP.

Check all the systems amazon has...

This is just for reference really. I'm not sure where prices are different for you across the pond. :( Also, these are retail.

If you wanted to go cheap, didn't want 3d, flip design, or the larger screen, then 2ds. I wouldn't do it though. lol

Got a used reseller and ask to try each one.
I would say 3DS XL but you might find that to large.
