    So as the title asks, do you think Pokemon Sun and Moon will have features exclusive to the New 3DS? If so, what features do you think it'll have? It kind of stands to reason that it would, they have a history of it when 2 generations have been released on the same hardware. The second generation of Pokemon while completely playable on a regular Gameboy (excluding Crystal), had the benefit of being in full color and the ability to perform a mystery gift with the infrared port on the Game Boy Color. While the fifth generation of Pokemon while completely playable on a regular DS, had the ability to utilize the DSi's camera for video chatting.

    Given that there is something of a precedence for this kind of thing, it wouldn't surprise me to see some sort of N3DS features. I think the most obvious and probably sure thing is the boosted clock rate running natively (We can do this in Gen 6 thanks to NTR), which of course is great for more fluid FPS especially during battles. Beyond that, what I really want is stereoscopic 3D everywhere and not just in battles. I'd have to imagine the New 3DS can handle that, and clearly the ability to have 3D on a New system and not on an Old system is possible as Hyrule Warriors Legends proved. The only other exclusive feature I could think that it might have would be control of the camera with the C-Stick, but I don't think a lot of people are really begging for that feature.

    Not true.

    Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 had DSi functions, despite the fact that it was playable on DS.

    Also, Pokemon b2w2 could only get Therian formes from the usage of Pokemon Dream Radar on 3DS.

    It wouldn't be the first time they have support for a cartridge across more than one device.

    They could easily allow it to access the extra RAM on N3DS if you had one.

    If anything, they will do 3d in more places (like triple battles) and maybe limited camera control with the c-stick.

    erm, technically all consoles can be for kids, just that 2DS is a cheaper alternative.

    Once again, they've always had cross console content.

    Like how Pokemon RSEFRLG could get pokemon from Pokemon Box,
    heck, Pokemon from Coll and XD was needed to complete the pokedex, if one couldn't attend events for Ho-oh Lugia and other Johto Pokemon.


    It's just a nice way to sell more consoles, if you really wanted it.

    I don't think there'd be anything N3DS exclusive because simply put, the N3DS isn't too drastically different from the O3DS. It has better speed and better 3D. That's pretty much it.

    The GBC supported Color, instead of just grayscale, and the DSi was basically a completely revamped DS.

    <snip> What exactly makes a console more for kids than others. Since the GameCube had sharp corners to it does that mean it was for edgy teenagers?

    At the very least I'd expect it to make use of the improved clock speed.

    Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, one of the most recent Pokémon games, runs noticeably slower in some places (especially in dungeons with fog like Sheer Mountain Range) on the old 3DS, while the new 3DS is much smoother. In general, this only applies when the 3D is turned on. Granted, Spike-Chunsoft is not GameFreak, but I'd be surprised if they didn't do something like this.

    That logic doesn't make sense. Giving a bare experience is not how you win over your audiences for any form of sequels. Sure, people will buy it, but lack of new features make for a boring experience.
    Not saying Sun and Moon is a bare game, as they added Battle Royals, Z Moves, and a revamped story system, and I'm not saying there will be N3DS exclusive features either. At best, as others have already said, Game Freak could add more 3D areas of the game, as well as take advantage of the N3DS clock speed. Of course, if they don't, you could always use HANS to force increase the clock speed.

    Alex, your logic is dumbfounded. Truly you can't believe the 2ds is strictly for kids. Not to mention it has nothing to do with the question.

    As for OP? No. It wouldn't make sense to have N3DS specific features in a Pokémon game.

    nintendo made it for kids, as the parents didnt like the 3d for kids, i know no only kids play in a 2ds but nintendo made it for kids that´s why for example why oras have only 3ds in combats
    Edit: found at wikipedia: "Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé stated that the 2DS was primarily targeted towards younger players (such as those younger than age 7), whom they had previously advised not to use the 3D functionality on the 3DS due to potential eye health concerns."

    You continue to spread misinformation and insist you are right despite the sources posted.

    Also there is no such thing as "nintendo ceo of america". More misinformation being spewed.
