    I put a preorder on the EU Charizard version put now i don't know whether i should cancel it or not. The reason for that is that the reason i was buying it was to have a backup unit and unit that i will use one of the R4 card's to play 2DS games.

    So my question is that how likely do you think it is that the new Pokemon 2DS comes with the latest 1.04 firmware? If it comes with it then it probably would make getting a working card for it harder.

    I'm pretty sure it comes with a download code for the games, so its almost guaranteed to be on the latest firmware. Even if its pre-installed, its still a really good chance of being on 10.4.

    Well that's a bummer if it's the case. I might reconsider getting the New Super Mario Bros 2 bundle instead.

    You can still downgrade regardless and install the bluecardfix to your Sysnand so you can use an r4 but if you downgrade you might as well install CFW :^)

    Why would it be on older firmwares like those? These things usually tend to stay around the update that was released at the time they were first manufactured.

    You can also get the MK7 bundle. Comes on 8.x or below. Mine was on 6.0.0.

    Because they are in production long before recent firmware what else do you think it would come out with 10.4?

    I'd be a very stupid idea to put them on 10.1 or 9.9. It'll be on an unexploitible firmware, 10.4.

    If it's not, I'll be flabbergasted.

    Because that would official mean that everyone at Nintendo is a fucking idiot.

    I highly doubt Nintendo is gonna grab hundreds of thousands of new consoles ready to ship open them all up, put them all back to an assembly line, and re flash every Nand chip with 10.4 and re seal them.

    Also, so far, all 2DS's that came with download codes have been on the latest firmware. The Yokai Watch bundle just to name one.

    If it comes with 10.4, there's no way to downgrade. I highly doubt Nintendo would push out a new system with 10.3 or lower.

    Well i wasn't really expecting it to be under 10.3 but i was hoping that it would be on the latest firmware because the latest firmware just came out and there's just a month long gap between the release. What i'm hoping is that like Xenon said the system have already been stocked and because of that can't be on the latest firmware.

    But who know's how long the new firmware has been a thing really. It might have been done a long while ago but just recently released so if that's the case then the pokemon systems might be 10.4.

    Depends whether they think their latest patch is safe.

    Can you remember how long the latest firmware had been up at that time?

    Xenon will be most likely be right. I feel that they will load the latest ones with 10.4, so maybe there will be rare ones with a lower firmware version. But, I don't know. Just making guesses.

    The yo-kai watch bundle came out on Nov. 6. The current firm at the time was 10.2.
    The firmware the system actually came with was 10.2 9.9

    9.9 means the latest the system MB was manufactured was Sept 8.
    MANUFACTURING LEAD TIMES -> THE POKE 2DS WILL BE LESS THAN 10.4

    A german youtuber already got one from nintendo. There is no badge arcade in the home menu, so I doubt it even ships on 10.3
    at around 7:07
    Of course it could be an early version of it, but I don't think thats the case.
