    I have 3ds that is firmware v0.4.3. I have both retail pokemon X and Y.
    What I want to ask is, in order to play pokemon X or Y, do I need firmware update?
    Can I choose to ignore the automatic message for firmware update and play retail X and Y?
    I am not talking about running X and Y through flash cart, but by retail cartridge.

    It will force you to update to 6.1. It's kind of obvious.

    So, I guess I can't ignore the required update and play pokemon X and Y.
    Alright thanks.
