2DS is a cash grab at the parents who heard 3DS is bad for their kids eyes.  Not to mention the developers hate the 3D format they have to add to the games on 3DS.

 3DS games are also far larger than DS games :P

Well, the whole 3D aspect does tend to take up more than 2D graphics of the same quality.

You also realize that the 3ds is immensely more powerful then the DS when it comes to specs, even without the 3d processing, and that the 3d aspect is not at all required for developers publishing to the 3ds.

The engine for 3ds games, and the format they are in are completely different. Yes they borrow elements from the game format and builds that they used with the DS because it worked well, but its still vastly different.

The 2DS is cheaper because they removed so much technology, but is still incredibly more powerful then a DS and it needs to be because of the games that it will be required to run, and they wanted a console that was a lot cheaper to help boost the sales, because they screwed themselves over by releasing the 3DSXL so early.

Saying that they are the effectively same system is like saying the PS2 is just an upgraded PS1. Very different when you get down to the technical side of it

Not to mention everyone has $200 to shell out on a 3DS. >_>

Hey, anyone have a Magician Fennekin or a Bulletproof Chespin I could snag? I can't find one for the life of me.

Offline Khoraz

Would anyone be willing to send me a ditto? I'm at the center and could start breeding. Fennekin, Squirtle, Charmander, Snorlax (unless you need incense for baby Munchlax).

But yeah, anyone?

You do know since those abilities are hella rare you'd normally be forking over a legendary right?

Offline Khoraz

Okay I just now have all Kalos and Kanto starters. If anyone wants me to breed one let me know.  :-)
Also both fossil pokes.

The starters can easily get you the friend safari pokemon, I'd use them for the gts and keep breeding till you get the rare ability for the starters.

Not really, considering I have a Protean Froakie already I can basically do an even swap.

Offline Khoraz

Grr. I hate sending starters to get a damn stupid monkey in return ><

Don't use wonder trade with starters.  Use the GTS.

That's kind of the point, no? If everyone had every hidden ability, then why would anyone need to trade for it?

Offline Khoraz

The GTS is weird though. How are you supposed to let the other person yes or no? It seems odd to me.

They don't yes or no, put your pokemon up and request a pokemon with gender if it matters and level.  The pokemon you put up there will be taken from you as if you've already chosen to trade it.

Huh? Hmm clearly I haven't been doing this right...

Offline Tsenta

Tested my phone's wifi connectivity, worked with my DS so hopefully I might be getting a 3DS from a friend here this month. So next month I can buy X/Y and get to it.  I keep reading boards and stuff on X/Y and it's just making me want them that much more. X_X

Offline Chris Brady

I hear ya!  I so want a 2DS and either game myself.  Curse my being broke!

* Chris Brady shakes fist to the heavens!

Offline Khoraz

It'll be all the better for waiting ^^

But it is definitely a peak in the series... even if Eevees seem to take forever to hatch ><

Offline Khoraz

Also asking entirely out of ignorance and being a novice to IV/EV breeding shenanigans, how do you get a pokemon with its hidden ability?

Is it entirely chance whenever you breed? Does the parent have to be male or female woth a ditto?

Breed with a pokemon of its same egg group.  Also everstone I've been hearing plays a huge part in breeding in this game.  Though I've noticed that if you use the everstone, your hatchlings will have the same stats as the mother.  So if you have a female with perfect IV and a beneficial nature, put the everstone on her before putting her in the daycare.

Offline Khoraz

Everstone only passes on the mothers nature. I'm talking about hidden abilities. I heard you can only gwt them from Friend Zones post-game...?
