    Source

    It comfirms to you idiots who thought Nintendo would really include 3DS features in b/w while the Japanese version didn't and not to mention it's just a DS game!

    I don't see how people are idiots hoping for 3DS features on B/W when it could have been a logical possibility...

    But who were we to know if the DS Game didn't have any hidden information made for the 3DS. If it did I can tell you now allot of hardcore Pokemon fans would buy the 3DS on release date for their precious Pokemon Games.

    Sure it's highly unlikely that would ever happen but when you open up your mind anything is logical.

    EDIT: I'd appreciate a Post Merge. I didn't realize I double posted...

    I'd of thought the jp b/w roms have been severely raided because of the game mechanics, moves, pokemon stats and everything else the pokemon community needs. Any 3DS data would have been found...and surely Nintendo would have highly advertised if b/w did have 3DS tech when played on it.

    Doesn't the DSi read some cartridge data differently than the DS Lite does? (I have a source on this, but the data mentioned is kinda small-scale.) In that same way, isn't it possible that the DSi is told to ignore some data on the cartridge that the 3DS can read, thus making it impossible(?) for any roms that have been released thus far to contain the 3DS-only data?

    I'm not saying this is actually what's going on, especially not now that GameFreak has even said it's not happening.

    If it were a "we don't comment on rumors" bs response, then yeah.

    Japanese devs tend to put less features in the Japanese version, put more features in the US/EU version and then re-release the game again in Japan with features that are in the US/EU and sometimes more features and then never touch the game again, all in the name of profit.

    So Black/White 3D was a possibility.

    Yeah but this isn't SE. When did that ever happen to any Pokemon game? It's more likely that the possible 3rd Version will be a 3DS game.

    Not surprised.
    I was expected this. It was just another IGN screw-up.

    It doesn't say that. The article just says that Pokemon Black/White won't have any 3DS exclusive features.
