I haven’t played A Nintendo console properly since my old Game Boy colour with Pokemon Silver. Very very briefly had a DS with Pokemon black but never got around to playing it properly.
I’ve wanted a 3DS for a while now so took the plunge and bought a **new** 3DS XL with Omega.
My first thoughts:
Why oh why did Nintendo not supply any charger with the console? I had to settle for an aftermarket one that was sold in the shop that I got the console from. Apparently even though there’s a minor difference in voltage compared to the official charger it should work fine.
Secondly what is with the god awful naming and branding of the console?! To just call it a 3DS and stick new at the beginning of it is just confusing to me (at first) and nearly every shop I went to when looking for a decent deal.
Apart from that, the console is brilliant and I’m addicted to the game (Pokemon Omega) already!
As a complete newbie to the 3DS can you guys share some other games worth getting? Once I’ve completed Omega, is it worth getting X or Y? Is it that much different to Alpha/Omega?
dude. pokemon on the 3ds is amazing. replayability is simply what makes this game so great. there is just so much to do and it is such a simple concept. "Wanna collect pokemon? It will take months to evolve, trade up from other games, and find some of the rarer ones. This is what I did. Had to use a few emulators and whatnot to get some all the way from GBA to the 3ds This was before the recent remakes were out. The event pokemon kinda suck since you have to sorta cheat to get them. I had one pokemon of almost all of them. You can go shiny hunting, wondertrade, train special teams, battle. I sorta overplayed XY recently though and I have been burned out. Nintendo has really done a great job keeeping this series fun.
Black and White 2 would be among the Pokemon games I would choose for the quintessential Pokemon experience. Awesome setting, healthy mix of Pokemon across all Generations. Cool antagonist (Colress), and some actually decent backstory to Black/White Kyurem.
