    You can get them in packs of three from many online retailers.

    Also, you can get unofficial ones that fit perfectly well into the stylus slot.

    I normally only see the HORI retractable ones which Nintendo "approves".

    are they like 3rd party makers or the traditional OEM kind
    cuz some are just a whole piece of plastic in the shape of hte styli
    and its even NINTENDO APPROVED!!! which to me is odd

    most retailers that sell video games and/or accessories, such as EB Games/Gamestop, Best Buy, Future Shop, etc. also sell official NDS/L styluses.
    Also:
    I've been using one of those extendable metal styluses from DX, and don't see what's so "sucky" about it. Doesn't scratch, feels heavier, and is longer for my abnormally large hands. I advise you buy those (about 3.50 USD for a 4 pack).

    Plenty of companies approve 3rd party products.

    HORI make fine products.

    The iQue styli are official ... if you can find them ... they come in singles, all the way through to bundles of 12 or more.

    So glad I got an iQue DS Lite as a replacement, rather than a Nintendo one, as the battery life is better, the console itself is more attractive, and feels sturdier, if that makes any sense. Plus, it definitely seems more resistant to minor scuffs and scratches.

    I recommend the Metal stylus Scrubersteve mentioned. I'm using them currently, and they're great. Within 3 monthes, my both of my original styluses (The ones that came with the DS) had an ugly tip, and would've scratched the screen even if it made a contact. Then when I got the metal styluses, they're still perfect after a month. I use them more heavily than before (Thank you Ninja Gaiden), but it's still perfect. And, it's cheaper than the official ones, while also more durable. Highly recommended from me.

    I find the stylus included in the Official DS stand to be the most comfortable of all stylus I've used. It can be attached to the stand by string even.
    The stand is only available in Japan though [​IMG];
    But it has a very nice grip, and the head of the stylus is very slick,unlike the regular stylus that doesn't slide as easily.
    The original DS stylus from the Phat is the worst one to get.
    DO NOT WANT
    They are very easy to lose on top of being very cramped.
