Oh, I do realize it's on the DS people, lol. Nightmare Samurai, I totally agree.
I don't have anything against the Nintendo DS, I think the Nintendo DSI XL is a brilliant handheld console, but the problem is why must we 3ds user be denied of a pokemon main game on the 3ds.

I know that DS games work on the 3ds so we can play it on the 3ds, but playing DS games on a 3ds doesn't look so good, I tried some DS games on the 3ds, looks worse on it.
You're not being denied.

It will happen. Not this time, as it is not in Nintendo's best interests (because of the players themselves) to do so, but it will happen.

As a consumer who would've like to seen pokémon make its move onto the 3DS i'm having trouble understanding why the others who want it on 3DS can't understand that from a marketing point of view nintendo are putting the game onto the platform that's most widely available, the DS (which inturn will logically see the most return in profit). Personally i'm not that bothered by it, and I understand that in due time ninty will release pokémon onto the 3DS (hell i'd love 3DS r/b/y anniversary edition or something). It would be daft of them not too at some point. Just not at this point.

I'm crossing my fingers for a Emerald remake on the 3DS, even though it's rather unlikely for the foreseeable future. Hoenn was definitely my favorite region in past generations.

Lorx, you are a true Pokemon fan. I respect what you said. However, I will disagree with you here. The Hoenn region games, mainly Emerald, were certainly some of the best of the earlier Pokemon games, but I think a remake involving, say, the Sinnoh region would be better. Maybe one with Regigigas as its main story Pokemon. That, sadly, is irrelevent to the current consersation, but you could check out my thread on the subject.
Back on the actual conversation, who thinks Nintendo will need a big title to make the real switch to the 3DS? Either that or gradually let people ease into it. It will be quite some time, though, before they release a real Pokemon game for the 3DS.

They're going complete Hitler on this entire situation.

Think you'll find it's 'can't spell Ignorance without IGN'

on another note - perhaps with the release of B/W2 this is a signs of things to come (returning to older regions with new storylines)

I'm actually kinda surprised and impressed they've stuck with the DS platform. I mean, it would have been so easy to produce a handful of things to "justify" it being 3DS exclusive despite what I assume is it going to rehash the engine from B/W.

Wow, TheBrapman, you're a genius for realizing that!

(Internet sarcasm)

As for you, Peter, exactly what exactly do you mean by that Hitler reference?

Heh, I was just joking, obviously.

I knew what I was talking about, but I just can't describe it...

Why don't you try. If not, then get back on the actual conversation we're all trying to keep up on.

You brought it up with Peter in the first place? I don't see why you are now just snapping at him for giving you an unspecified response. And as for your "(Internet sarcasm)" comment, patronising much? I think you're being quite rude.

Insanity Prevails I hope B/W2 does get an engine/graphical update so that it doesn't look abit ugly on the 3DS, like DS games usually do. And before anyone makes a point of just using your DS to play it, the main reason I bought a 3DS was to be a replacement.

Is it wrong to want to know what he meant? If I'm in a conversation, I want to konw what's going on.

Anyway... Even if people bought the 3DS as a replacement for the DS, that doesn't mean it's time to get rid of it and swap over right away. The simple fact is that the DS has made Nintendo a lot of money (thanks to people like us) and not everyone that would buy the new Pokemon game would have a 3DS yet. If they put B/W 2 on the 3DS, then it would force everyone would wants to play it to get one. This is not good, since Nintendo is in the business of MAKING MONEY. If they switched over too soon, they would lose money. It's really very simple.

You completely missed my point. My DS broke a couple of weeks before 3DS was released. I bought a 3DS to replace the broken DS. I was not making a point nintendo immediately dropping support for the DS and move straight on with the 3DS. I've already stated multiple times that I understand and acknowledge nintys choice to remain with the DS.
