The XL has been on sale for $175 before, maybe even $160 for the Pikachu version at Target on release. Personally, I would wait for a lower price or better bundle.
Here's the catch though, for some reason Nintendo doesn't like to deeply discount the 3ds during Black Friday, from what I've seen in years past. The better prices were always random sales and not BF discounts. However, if you want a 3ds XL bundled with a digital game, then BF may be a better option. While the pokemon editions were announced, it's still possible that Nintendo has something in the wings for BF. My personal hope is that they bring out a Legend of Zelda edition bundled with the new game. If they don't, I'll probably hold off for a Monster Hunter 4 bundle next year.
