Guys, don't try downloading at midnight,
how do you think e-shop will work with Pokémon releases?
You will need hours and hours of download if e-shop does not go down.
I bet e-shop will go down a couple of times for the amount of people accessing it.
I do not know how 3DS deals with an unfinished download, things could get ugly.

Wait 2 or 3 days and download it with security and at a decent speed, that's my advice.
Feel free to do whatever you want, but do not ask me how to deal with corrupted data on 3DS,
I'll only say: I told not to do it.

Yeah, like mentioned above, obviously the download pauses, heck, if you put it downloading in suspended mode the game will download as long as it has network, if you leave a place with internet it will simply pause and then resume once it has internet again. The system or the game itself won't be damaged.

Well, I didn't know about the download pauses,
but anyway, I wouldn't try downloading Pokémon X and Y on release date,
I bet e-shop will go down several times,
and download speed will go from slow to super slow.
Better be patient and download 2 or 3 days later, when things get more calm.

It will probably take hours, but it'll still be faster than waiting until the game stores open.
And even if the 3DS handled suspended downloads badly and the things you said were true, don't forget that games are stored on the SD card, so worst case scenario the SD card corrupts and you have to run ScanDisk.

Maybe, some stores receive the game a day earlier,
in NYC it should be easy to get the game a day before it's release.

It's not often, but sometimes stores are forced to respect the release dates given by the game company, Nintendo wants a world-wide release and if Nintendo wants to, they can take stores to court that release the game earlier.

Besides, if you look at time-zones, Japan will have it first, then Europe and then the US, since the days start at different times.

Naturally, I just showed an hypothesis based on previous releases.
Since it's the first worldwide release of a Pokémon game, things could be different,
but honestly I doubt.

Spain will have it first, it will be released there at the 11th, because 12th is a feast day in Spain.

Well, you might be right, but still, it's a feast day and therefore I believe, that they'll publish it even trough eShop.

    I don't like popcorn at all; bland taste, and it got ruined for me because of high school - the school cafeteria reeked of microwave popcorn for several days...utterly revolting, couldn't even enter the place it stunk so bad.

    Nah, for movies I'd rather get a bag of lollies instead of popcorn.

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Not lollipops; what Americans would call "candies" or just "candy" IDK. Before the pandemic, cinemas used to have buckets of different ones - sour cola, sour watermelon, and many others; I used to get a scoopful of two or three types into a paper bag to have throughout the movie.
